Thoughts on the worsening catastrophe of German energy policy, and how things came to be this way.
It’s absolute madness. The Greens don’t reject nuclear power because it is dangerous and it doesn’t work. They reject it because it isn’t and it does. If you don’t mind me posting here. https://open.substack.com/pub/lowstatus/p/save-the-planet-unleash-godzilla?r=evzeq&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web
Green policies, like DIE, are just part of the background now. Hegemonic, assumed, axiomatic. For everyone inside the managerial, academic, corporate, regulatory etc. bureaucracies, it isn't a question of whether CO2 is driving a climate catastrophe, or even whether 'renewable' (lol) energy is the way to solve this. The only question is how best to implement the decisions they all agree must be implemented.
That none of this is based in reality, and all of it is guaranteed to result in an actual catastrophe, is of no concern to them.
In sum, there is no reasoning with these people. They must simply be removed from influence. The only question is how to do that without ripping everything apart ... although maybe that isn't possible, and the real question is closer to the one Hari Seldon posed at the beginning of Foundation.
I am generally very sparing with my praise. But this is an EXCELLENT analysis, Eugyppius. (From an American who lived a year in Germany. )
An attempt to create another energy crisis has also begun in the US, with new rules against natural gas heating and appliances being installed on new-builds in some states. Absolutely ridiculous considering that natural gas is one of the cleanest, most efficient energy sources ever discovered.
With new fracking techniques drillers can recover enough natural gas to supply the US for over 700 years . . . which, of course, totally ruins the elites' crisis narrative, and explains their anxiousness to be rid of it.
Eugyppius, you are one of the wisest voices on Substack. Happy to see you getting into energy which was always going to be a far scarier grift than covid for a variety of reasons, many of which you elocuted here so well. But here is the real question: what shall we, mere mortals, do about this? Or shall we all just move to Russia? China? There must be some other solution. Hoping that your brainpower will help present some actionable things that can be done auf Deutschland and around the world.
The whole Climate Catastrophe narrative is far more scary than the Covid Crap narrative because it's been years in the making. I am old enough to remember the newspapers having mocked up photos of icebergs and polar bears floating along the Thames in London! I also remember the stories of how we would be growing grapes and avocadoes and housing refugees from southern Europe as it became uninhabitable due to the increasing heat. I remember the hole in the ozone, the acid rain, the uncontrollable forest fires, the melting of the Siberian permafrost, the drowning of the Maldives. We were either going to freeze or burn. Interestingly, because nothing much happened the public proved pretty indifferent. Unlike Covid where the public were easily fooled. It's so ridiculous - if you want to save the planet it's really simply. Just stop spraying chemicals all over it! CO2 isn't the baddie. Burning coal isn't the baddie. Killing things with chemicals and chucking plastic everywhere are the problems.
From Red to Green. One year after Chernobyl, Mikhail Gorbachev announced the creation of “Green Cross International”, an organisation whose president he is still today. It is fighting for the worldwide adoption of the “Earth Charter”, a document drafted in close cooperation with the Rockefellers. Torsten Mann shows in his new book that the real aim of this charter is promoting world communism under the new “global sustainable community” label.

"...there is nothing anybody can do about it" I disagree.
I know a German who worked in the energy field and "finally" toured a nuke plant last year. She was very impressed. However, she is in total denial of what's going on there and won't discuss anything negative.
I'll circle back to her in 2 years and the majority there like her. They will have seen reality and will stand up. Same problem in the US: until enough people feel enough pain, denial is easy. When harsh reality is their only friend, the instinct to fight back kicks in.
Never give up. Never surrender.
Pretty much everywhere in the west.
Meanwhile in energy-starved Germany reality is starting to bite... March industrial orders fell by 10.7%, overall production decreased by 3.4%, manufacture of cars parts and machinery fell by 6.5% and 3.4% respectively.
It's not a fight when no one is punching back.
Democracy is just lipstick on an oligarch pig.
Great essay. All this Climate Change crap is based on a lie: there is no Anthropogenic Climate Change and spending trillions will do nothing to change the equation. We are seeing the same insanity from Michigan to Sri Lanka. We have over 200 years worth of fossil fuels. We need to use them.
The mass invasion (e.g., migration) has nothing to do with Climate Change and everything to do with imposing slavery on every country on planet Earth. The point is destabilization of the US, Canada, and the EU. The means is filling the boat (e.g., nation) with so many immigrants that it results in a societal collapse. Same the Electric Vehicles which make to damn sense. The point is to make them disposable (new battery 15 to 35 thousand dollars) and unaffordable which then make the public dependent on mass transit and autonomous vehicles which they will not own.
If you actually printed out my latest essay it is about 46 pages long. So don't do that. Instead take a few hours, or days, to fully assimillate the essay, the videos and the links to related articles. If you do I am confident you will reach the following conclusions I have.
* There is no Anthropogenic Climate Change (man made) and spending 50 Trillion to reduce CO2, Nitrogen etc. will do absolutely nothing.
* Electric Cars, Trucks, Ovens, etc. will also do nothing for the environments since they rely on fossil fuels to provide the electricity. Neither will Windmills and Solar Panels. What all of this will do is advantage China, who will eventually invade our country. After all all of these technologies, minerals, patents are controlled by China.
* The "Green Agenda" is not really about controlling the Climate. It is about controlling you. You are actually the Carbon they want to reduce.
Climate Change, the Mass Invasion of our Southern Border, the Plandemic etc. have all been perpetrated by Globalist Oligarchs in order to enslave every human on planet Earth. I am not smart enough to solve all these problems but that is not going to stop me from trying. Because if we don't rise up now we will all be nothing but slaves on a Global Plantation. Perhaps the most insidious part of the Globalist's plan is a Digital Currency, which is in fact the Mark of the Beast made real: a mark you must have to buy or sell.
The Globalist Oligarchs are powerful but small in numbers. The good people of planet Earth are many. We must unite where we can and end their rule before they turn all of us into slaves. All of us is all we need. Rise up.

A little while ago some German Green somebody (possibly one of the men you mention) gave a statement regarding the potential delay to shut down one of the reactors (this was last year if I recall);
"They won't take away my victory"
I wish I'd make a note of it as I can't recall for the life of me the guy's name. Tells you everything you need to know. They're zealots on a crusade.
Is Germany just destined to destroy itself every hundred years? They're bang on schedule.
Excellent overview, but these technocrats are behind it all ... the same crew the same agenda a few layers up. The covidians are thoroughly connected to the greenians by the money spigots creating the flow of resources. It's ALL to service the great reset.
Why do Germans keep voting for the Greens?
