European green energy fiasco is a terrifying warning for US this winter

Renewable energy proves unreliable, so Europeans turn to coal and nuclear as they face crisis

Europe’s climate-consciousness is hardly paying off for European families who face startling energy blackouts this winter amid a dangerous energy crisis. The energy shortage is largely due to an over reliance on solar and wind generated power made worse by Europe’s 2015 Paris Climate Accord agreement, which mandated the closing of coal-fired power plants and replacing them with less reliable wind and solar power alternatives. 

There is no doubt that unpredictable energy sources such as these cause unnecessary suffering, financial strain and even illness among the most vulnerable. Americans should take heed from Europe’s misguided energy strategy and misplaced reliance on wind and solar power, or else watch many regions of the United States endure lengthy power shortages.

US denies ‘preposterous’ claim they ‘sabotaged’ Nord Stream 2 – as Trump shares video of Biden promising to ‘bring an end’ to pipeline and asks ‘World War III anyone?’

Trump shared a February 7, 2022 video on Truth Social of Joe Biden pledging to ‘stop’ Germany and Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline if Russia invades Ukraine. The same video was shared by Russia’s foreign ministry while accusing Biden of being behind the explosions that caused the Baltic Sea gas leaks. Asked for clarification on Trump’s stance, his spokesman told DailyMail.com that the former president’s statements ‘speak for themselves’.

The US government is denying ‘preposterous’ allegations that it is behind a gas leak in the Baltic Sea on Wednesday.

It comes as Donald Trump suggested that ‘World War III’ could be near while sharing a video of President Joe Biden threatening to stop Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Mysterious and alarming leaks were found in both Nord Stream pipelines this week, prompting the European Union to call it the result of a ‘deliberate act.’

Multiple accusations have already been lobbed at the Kremlin amid ever-growing hostilities over its illegal invasion of Ukraine. 

Meanwhile Moscow is pointing the finger at the United States, declaring that Washington is ‘obliged’ to explain its alleged role in the ‘sabotage.’

A US official denied the accusations, according to the Washington Post. DailyMail.com has reached out to the White House for comment.

Musk: Without oil and gas, ‘civilization will crumble’

That transition is by no means a simple or an easy one. The Tesla CEO noted that it is one “of the biggest challenges the world has ever faced.”

Speaking at an energy conference in Stavanger, Norway, on August 29, Tesla CEO Elon Musk reiterated a claim that he made earlier this year: “I think we need to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilization will crumble.”

Amid an energy crisis in Europe — which some anticipate will get much worse in the winter — high gas prices, and a grid rendered more unstable in the U.S. by reliance on so-called sustainable energy, Musk claimed that “we actually need more oil and gas, not less.”

Though he indicated that “we have a clear path to a sustainable energy future,” it is not a path that can be treaded quickly. Musk said the transition “will take some decades to complete.”
