When Green fanatic Robert Habeck, posing as Germany’s Economy Minister, said earlier this week “we should expect the worst” in terms of energy security, he conveniently forgot to spell out how the whole farce is a Made in Germany cum Made in Brussels crisis.

Flickers of intelligence at least still glow in rare Western latitudes, as indispensable strategic analyst William Engdahl, author of A Century of Oil, released a sharp, concise summary revealing the skeletons in the glamour closet.

Everyone with a brain following the ghastly Eurocrat machinations in Brussels was aware of the main plot – yet hardly anyone among average EU citizens. Habeck, Chancellor “Liver Sausage” Scholz, the European Commission (EC) Green Energy VP Timmermans, EC dominatrix Ursula von der Leyen, they are all involved.

In a nutshell: as Engdahl describes it, this is about “the EU plan to de-industrialize one of the most energy-efficient industrial concentrations on the planet.”

That’s a practical translation of the UN Green Agenda 2030 – which happens to be metastasized into crypto Bond villain Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset – now renamed “Great Narrative”.

The whole scam started way back in the early 2000s: I remember it vividly, as Brussels used to be my European base in the early “war on terror” years.

At the time, the talk of the town was the “European energy policy”. The dirty secret of such policy is that the EC, “ advised” by JP MorganChase as well as the usual mega speculative hedge funds, went all out into what Engdahl describes as “a complete deregulation of the European market for natural gas.”

That was sold to the Lugenpresse (“lying media”) as “liberalization”. In practice, that’s savage, unregulated casino capitalism, with the “free” market fixing prices while dumping long-term contracts – such as the ones struck with Gazprom.

How to decarbonize and destabilize

The process was turbo-charged in 2016, when the last gasp of the Obama administration encouraged massive export of LNG out of the U.S.’s huge shale gas production.

For that one needs to build LNG terminals. Each terminal takes as much as 5 years to build. Within the EU, Poland and Holland went for it from the start.

As much as Wall Street in the past invented a “ paper oil” speculative market, this time they went for a speculative “paper gas” market.

Engdahl details how “the EU Commission and their Green Deal agenda to ‘decarbonize’ the economy by 2050, eliminating oil, gas and coal fuels, provided the ideal trap that has led to the explosive spike in EU gas prices since 2021.”

The creation of this “single” market control implied forcing illegal rule changes on Gazprom. In practice, Big Finance and Big Energy – which totally control anything that passes for “EU policy” in Brussels – invented a new pricing system parallel to the long-term, stable prices of Russian pipeline gas.

By 2019, an avalanche of Eurocrat energy “ directives” by the EC – the only thing these people do – had established a totally deregulated gas market trading, setting the prices for natural gas in the EU even as Gazprom remained the largest supplier.

As lots of virtual trading hubs in gas futures contracts started popping up across the EU, enter the Dutch TTF (Title Transfer Facility). By 2020 the TTF was established as the real EU gas benchmark.

As Engdahl points out, “TTF is a virtual platform of trades in futures gas contracts between banks and other financial investors. Outside, of course, of any regulated exchange.

So LNG prices soon started to be set by futures trades in the TTF hub, which crucially happens to be owned by the Dutch government – “the same government destroying its farms for a fraudulent nitrogen pollution claim.”

By any means necessary Big Finance had to get rid of Gazprom as a reliable source to allow powerful financial interests behind the Green Deal racket to dominate the LNG market.

Engdahl evokes a case very few know about across Europe: “On May 12, 2022 although Gazprom deliveries to the Soyuz gas pipeline through Ukraine were uninterrupted for almost three months of conflict, despite Russia’s military operations in Ukraine, the NATO-controlled Zelensky regime in Kiev closed a major Russian pipeline through Lugansk, that was bringing Russian gas both to his Ukraine as well as EU states, declaring it would remain closed until Kiev gets full control of its pipeline system that runs through the two Donbass republics. That section of the Ukraine Soyuz line cut one-third of gas via Soyuz to the EU. It certainly did not help the EU economy at a time Kiev was begging for more weapons from those same NATO countries. Soyuz opened in 1980 under the Soviet Union bringing gas from the Orenburg gas field.”

Hybrid War, the energy chapter

On the interminable soap opera involving the Nord Stream 1 turbine, the crucial fact is that Canada deliberately refused to deliver the repaired turbine to Gazprom – its owner – but instead sent it to Siemens Germany, where it is now. Siemens Germany is essentially under American control. Both the German and Canadian governments refuse to grant a legally binding sanction exemption for the transfer to Russia.

That was the straw that broke the (Gazprom) camel’s back. Gazprom and the Kremlin concluded that if sabotage was the name of the game, they couldn’t care less whether Germany received zero gas via Nord Stream 1 (with brand new Nord Stream 2, ready to go, blocked by strictly political reasons).

Kremlin spokesman Dmity Peskov took pains to stress “problems in [gas] deliveries arose due to sanctions that have been imposed on our country and a number of companies by Western countries (…) There are no other reasons behind supply issues.”

Peskov had to remind anyone with a brain that it’s not Gazprom’s fault if “the Europeans (…) make a decision to refuse to service their equipment” which they are contractually obligated to do. The fact is the whole Nord Stream 1 operation hinges on “one piece of equipment that needs serious maintenance.”

Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, who knows one or two things about the energy business, cleared up the technicalities:

“The entire problem lies precisely on [the EU’s] side, because all the conditions of the repair contract have been completely violated, along with the terms of shipping of the equipment.”

All that is inscribed into what Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov describes as “a total war declared against us”, which is “being waged in hybrid forms, in all areas”, with “the degree of animosity of our opponents – of our enemies” being “enormous, extraordinary.”

So none of this has anything to do with “Putin weaponizing energy”. It was Berlin and Brussels – mere messengers of Big Finance – which weaponized the supply of European energy on behalf of a financial racket, and against the interests of European industry and consumers.

Beware of the toxic trio


Engdahl has summarized how, “by systematically sanctioning or closing gas deliveries from long-term, low cost pipelines to the EU, gas speculators via the Dutch TTP have been able to use every hiccup or energy shock in the world, whether a record drought in China or the conflict in Ukraine, to export restrictions in the USA, to bid the EU wholesale gas prices through all bounds.”

Translation: casino capitalism at its finest.

And it gets worse, when it comes to electricity. There is a so-called EU Electricity Market Reform in progress. According to it, producers of electricity – from solar or wind – automatically receive “the same price for their ‘renewable’ electricity they sell to the power companies for the grid as the highest cost, i.e. natural gas.” No wonder the cost of electricity in Germany for 2022 increased by 860% – and rising.

Baerbock incessantly parrots that German energy independence cannot be secured until the country is “liberated from fossil fuels.”

According to Green fanaticism, to build the Green Agenda it’s imperative to completely eliminate gas, oil and nuclear power, which happen to be the only reliable energy sources as it stands.

And it’s here that we see the toxic trio Habeck/Baerbock/von der Leyen ready for their close up. They pose as saviors of Europe preaching that the only way out is to invest fortunes in – unreliable – wind and solar power: the “answer” from Providence to a gas price debacle manufactured by none other than Big Finance, Green fanaticism and Eurocrat “leadership”.

Now tell that to struggling pan-European households whose bills will surge to a whopping, collective \$2 trillion as General Winter knocks on the door.

    For 30 + years green energy proponents have been making predictions about how much and at what cost green energy would be provided in 5 years, 10 years, etc. They have been spectacularly wrong with each projection but yet the new projections go unchallenged by governments and news media organizations around the world. All Gore has never been right about the future but he remains a revered figure throughout much of the world. Among the numerous reasons the West hates Russia is that Russia (Putin) regularly points out the limits of wind and solar.

  4. The Ogs says:

    So, let’s review. The Russian Federation has now apparently been ‘cut off’ from Siemens Corporation.
    Therefore all the pipelines and pumping stations, the entire infrastructure within Russia and beyond will need to be Siemens-free?
    I suppose it never occurred to the Russians that things could (illogically) ever reach this point.
    But there you go. So how hard can it be for the Russians to make Russian turbines and pumps etc?
    I’m certain it could be done with a bit of time, and at need…
    But you Europeans, remember that this was not Russia’s idea!
    And I have to wonder what will become of Siemens in the future, with no energy, fewer customers and nothing to pump.
    The common people might be slow but they’re not all stupid. And when Germans figure out that both North Stream 1 and 2 are ready to go but are blocked by politics, it won’t be pleasant.
    The German government might eventually have to admit that Ukraine (and its guarantors France and Germany) broke international law when they abandoned the Minsky Agreement, and that Russia is not evil.

  8. Funny thing about nuclear power: it gives people plentiful energy, it gives people jobs, and it gives a people national independence from foreign instability and entanglements.

    Pretty much every halfway decent country in the world could have been doing this for decades now. And most likely better than ever, if R&D had been encouraged/ allowed. As much as we’re hurting from turning away from oil now, we can’t let the oil companies off the hook for their part in this “discouragement.”

    And — given the issues with extraction, environmental impact, and disposal of the materials used in renewable energy installations — even worst case scenarios with nuclear plants wouldn’t cause significantly more problems than renewable sources operating normally, and with considerably less efficiency.

    I used to teach Philosophy of Science at an engineering school (US Naval Academy). One of the topics covered was political pressure and withholding of research funding to gain “scientific” backing for pre-ordained desirable conclusions. Many of the midshipmen were able to complete research which called into question the whole “green” agenda. Much of that insight was unfortunately confined to time at the Academy. The US military is a colossal bureaucracy very much under the same sort of anti-scientific pressures as are at work in the “Global warming/carbon is the villain/”green” agenda.

    Always compare how they handle “the covid pandemic” or “the Russian invasion” or “China’s militarism” to the goalposts of the 2050 Net Zero agenda of the Gaya cult.

    It’s all here

    On average, in 2030, meat consumption must be reduced by 25% (and at least halved by 2050) without increasing consumption of dairy products

    Whatever happens, whatever “world crisis” may unfold, the reactions will always, inevitably, lead to the outcome of less meat and less dairy products.

    By 2030, significantly reducing the demand for materials and products (5-10% by 2030, above 40% by 2050)

    Whatever happens, whatever “world crisis” may unfold, the reactions will always, inevitably, lead to less stuff to buy and to have.

    Wind and solar should reach at least 50% of power production by 2030, around 60% by 2050, and 75% of the demand-side management (DSM) potential is being exploited by 2050

    Whatever happens, whatever “world crisis” may unfold, the reactions will always, inevitably, lead to more and more dependence of wind and solar stuff.

    All of this is a given.

    This is of course just one vector of the many concurrent agendas clicking into place in real time, but it is highly important vector. This is the vector that leads to blackouts, emptying store shelves, crammed scruffy busses, low quality services, and in general life in the early 1980s Soviet Union but with dildos and child trannies.

    They will find ways to spin how it’s inevitable for the glory of cosmic justice and the happiness of Gaya for this to continue for at least a decade. Already are testing the waters.

    Here is a roadmap with the stages
    It’s all there step by step.
    In 2050 road use is at 60% of 2020 levels. However I’m sure we can all imagine zealous officials showing how they overachieved the glorious five year plan by reaching 50% and 40% levels of prior road use.

    In the 2030s and 2040s we have
    “all remaining airports close”
    “all shipping declines to zero”,
    “beef and lamb use phased out”
    “fertilizer use greatly reduced”
    “iron, cement, mortar, and new steel phased out”

    Many other things are happening in the world, but this is a major vector. Every time the talking heads do things which somehow accidentally and in utterly unforeseen ways keep leading toward the fulfilling of the above goalposts, we must remember what is being done.

    Why whole generations are being ruined, why desperation, depression, psychosis, poverty, and total dependence are covering the hemisphere. Why children are being brainwashed and castrated, why billions are forced to get injections that make them more prone to dying twenty years earlier.

    There is a specific vector, championed and applied by groups who try to ride every wave and every development in order to usher in their utopia.
    After that, the golden future unfolds.

  21. Two decades ago while doing research for Sanders I stumbled across the carbon credit racket. Nations were assigned credits based on carbon output and population, so all of Europe was using too much. As a result, corporations were shutting down very efficient “low carbon” factories in Europe and moving them to Africa and Asia with much lower wages and to collect carbon credit money while getting access to cheaper coal burning energy.

    So this was creating more carbon emissions for the world! It was (and remains) a scam to offshore production with lower wages and low environmental regulations.

    Here is a basic question no one will answer. The USA and Australia are shutting down coal plants that produce cheap yet dirty energy. Yet they export coal to other nations that burn it for cheap energy and pollute the world. Why? Why export coal that can’t be burned at home to save the planet that is burned elsewhere on the planet?

    The problem with chaos is that, by definition, it’s unpredictable. Sometimes those who loose the dogs of war get eaten by them.

    Jews formed a corps that destroyed Christian Russia in 1917. Some 20 years later, Stalin purged many of them…and sundry others: 900,000 in all.

    Beria did the party-hardy, danced with the devil, and raped/killed young Russian girls. Then his time came: executed at 54.

    Again, the problem with “breakdowns” is that what ensues is not readily known or easily controlled. Despite the destruction of Czarist Russia, Orthodox Christianity returned to the USSR in just 69 years: a blip in time.

    Who knew?

    As for liberal loons wanting the USA “broken down,” please note: there were some 430,000,000 privately-owned guns in 2019. And some 8,700,000,000 rounds of ammo.

    Now, some think that armed citizens are no match for the US military (should said armed forces ignore the Posse Comitatus Act). However, that ignores several factors. Like:

    How much gun-owners practice at shooting ranges.

    And how pissed they are.

    And how many feel they’ve nothing to lose.

    Plus many citizens are themselves military veterans.

    And, I suspect, many soldiers would hesitate to kill fellow civilians.

    Atop that, irate civilians might learn where soldiers’ families live.

    So all in all, I’d advise the Left not to count on…or conjure…chaos. They’d be like “sassy” sheboons with low impulse-control who feel free to slap cops. Not good:

After 1991 though, the Jews decided to term their polity a ‘democracy’–to dupe the goyim into thinking they had some power to choose their ‘representatives’–yet the Jews still occupy all the cabinet posts & control the State…lol

    NATO (Negroid Antifa Talmud Organization) & Antifa Russia are both surreptitiously governed by the same transnational cartel of Zionist-Communist Overlords.

    You’re a moron that actually believes net zero is more than a publicity stunt by corporations because you didn’t even bother to look into their claims beyond looking for things to fit in your dipshit worldview.

    For example, for oil and gas net zero doesn’t include consumers burning them, distribution and any other process beyond a narrowly defined production process.

    We have only two sources of energy – chemical reactions and nuclear reactions. I guess breaking a nuclear particle into its component quarks may also release significant energy, but given the madness we see about the nuclear energy, it is completely off the table for now.

    Yes, this explains the HOW. But the more important question is WHY?

    WHY is Germany and the rest of Europe, including the UK, being de-industrialized by the Americans?

    Here is my answer. The USA has runned out of third world and developing nations to rape and pillage. The USA is after all the greatest genocidal Empire in the world and in the world’s history. Bar none.

    In order to sustain its parasitic existence, which it learned from some tribe, the USA must rape and pillage the only block of nations left to be raped and pillaged. All the other nations in South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia have been pretty much looted by the Americans. What’s left? Russian? China? Iran? Too big and too powerful to digest.

    All those other nations are now looking to the BRI and BRICS to hitch their financial and economic wagons to.

    Therefore, the only nations left for the Americans to rape and pillage are in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea . . . did I miss anyone?

    Hence, the WHY.

    Europe and the UK must be cut off from the cheap energy from Russia first and then de-industrialized second, then the Americans can do to them what they have done in their glorious parasitic existence

    All the conspiracy talk about Green Energy and the Great Reset are just fodder for the simple minded folks. The real reason behind these conspiracies is for the USA to sustain its global Empire and the USD/UST.

    After all this is done, Europe and the UK will depend 100% on the US for technology and energy.

    and in october some of the smaller political parties are going to begin marching in the street and the german government is already planning a militaristic approach to deal with the protesters

    Agree [more on this below], also agree with the 1st part of this

    The West appears to have gone mad … The breakdown of society is the goal

    But not the 2nd part; what’s really going on here is ZUSA attempting to prevent any ‘economic alliance’ between Germany and Russia, and at the same time attempting to shore up the *printed* US\$ as world reserve currency [what a rip-off!]

    Now the “militaristic approach” has already been signalled, the D-regime is preparing to term protesters as ‘extremist conspiracy activists,’ on the way to breaking more than a few protesters’ heads. They could get away with this; most of the ‘Western democracies’ having jointly slipped into full-on tyranny with their crime against humanity mRNA mandates.

    There are a few ‘erring ideologies’ active:

    1. Neoliberal economic theory = free-market madness; both by the EU [effectively un-democratic] and by D [effectively anti-democratic] trying to privatise what should stay state monopoly utilities, here gas + pipelines and electricity, both production and distribution. ‘For profit’ may have its uses, but not on ‘natural’ monopoly utilities = water, sewage, roads & railways, electricity etc.. [Telephony could better perform in this grouping, thus avoiding the rip-off privatised system that has arisen.] Back to gas, note that as ‘the market’ has taken prices through the roof, both UK and D are promising ‘cash back’ to the customers and/or price caps, both inimical to free-market madness, and using tax money or printing money to give away makes great sense in the inflation that they are directly *causing*.

    2. Anti-Russian hate-hysteria. The mess that is current Ukraine was created mainly by ZUSA [with some local ‘help’], starting before the ‘orange revolution’ of 2004, continuing with the preparations for the 2014 Maidan coup then beyond. As well as forcing free-market madness upon the hapless Ukro-locals, Ukros were encouraged to murder their own [Russian by heritage] people in the Donbas. Russia was forced to respond – UN Article 51.

    People paying attention know all about this, and a ‘weakness’ attributed to Russia is that they lack their own version of the so-called ZUSA ‘soft power’ as applied through propaganda [mostly termed by me as ‘filthy and lying.’] It is truly shocking to see how ZUSA propaganda has corrupted the ‘mass-Western’ mindset.

    3. The Gaia hypothesis aka climate-change catastrophe via excess CO2. This ideology is not in error, but the way the D-greens are acting is; they are doing hideous damage to their own people and the atmosphere [the gas imbroglio, shutting off nuclear, resuming coal burning] rather than effectively fixing a real problem.

    4. The out of all control ZUSA hegemon, forcing its vassals into the above errors and more. This may be the ultimate in erring ideologies, since they may well drive us all over the nuclear-war cliff.

    Last: re the “smaller political parties,” Lindner could cause a D-govt. collapse by taking his FDP out of ‘the Ampel,’ which could only happen after the anti-Russian hate-hysteria is properly ‘cancelled.’ rgds

    The average house could use solar to offset their bills, but it’s the overnight storage that extracts a high cost in up front funds as well as long term maintenance so most don’t install backup. Countries far away from the equator are not good candidates for solar conversion just from the cost to utility perspective.

    Countries are also going to realize that tiny amounts of nuclear fuels can easily be stockpiled if they think it necessary, unlike petroleum reserves that are touted as an emergency reserve, but actually aren’t. The entire world is going electric for energy and nuclear is the best available technology to produce the cheapest and cleanest electricity available, in quantity.

  63. It has nothing to do with a suicide. It is a stab in the back by adroit traitors who want to bring back the Morgenthau Plan first promoted by FDR and his minions : make Germany miserable again as it used to be before the Aufklärung and before Bismarck. It is the same art of the stab in the back by the right dark characters at the service of those Americans intent on reversing the Marshall Plan, as was practised the 11-9-1918 at the moment Germany had just won every single battle on the Eastern front and extended to the gates of Petersburg after Brest-Litovsk, at the moment when the French soldiers had realized they themselves were the main foe shot at by their elite and were ready to stop it. It is the return of Versailles.

    The problem is that such a stab in the back is about to trigger in the subconscious of all Germans, and also of the German Turks who also feel victim of the same kinds of humiliation at home, the very same kind of reaction that resulted in the 1933 parliamentary coup. Ukraine is the traditional backyard of Poland, not Germany, which traditionally rather counts on greater Russia as a reservoir of commodities. Germany hasn’t poisoned herself to suicide but just given herself a booster shot. Ukraine has just done the unrepairable : there had been up to now a mental Maginot line standing against Nazism.

    Ukraine has just made Nazism respectable again like any political thesis can be, however controvertible it is. Nazism is no longer the gold standard of political evil but an opinion with its own pluses and minuses depending on the political circumstances more than on its essence : it can even be good for the Jews at times. Thanks to Ukraine having neglected to participate in its share of the common mental Maginot Line against the slightest nostalgia of the 1940’s, Nazism as an ideology has just turned around the line and is marching triumphantly in France and throughout all Europe. Worse : France’s BHL has repeatedly asserted that France’s nationalism and misgiving against immigration (of Gaullian persuasion) is bad but that Ukraine’s is good. The Germans will vote for AfD and the German Turks for Islamic parties that are nostalgic of the times when Turks and German right-wingers shared a common imperialistic in the ME. These Turks will refuse to consider that the German 1930’s were the darkest of their history. The German homeless will be offered some kind of Winterhilfe by many Turkish mosques and ordered not so much to convert to Islam at once but first no longer to be ashamed of what their ancestors did in the 1930-40’s. The Maginot wall has just been turned around and bombed down from behind. Macron speaks like a third version of Bonaparte as the emperor of EU. Will the Germans clap? I beg to differ.

    Like Japan, Germany is a country, relatively poor in energy resources, but one which very efficiently converts natural resources it imports into high quality products which are highly prized all over the world; that is their and Japan’s niche.

    Like the rest of Europe, they are ebbing demographically and have added themselves lots of social benefits during their years of prosperity. Still, their productivity has been so great that they‘ve also carried all of Europe economically on their back.

    The wagon they‘ve hitched their horse to, however, is now becoming a runaway millstone tied to their necks.

    Besides the anticipated order-of-magnitude increases in their energy costs, they are beginning to transition to “electro-mobility,“ a ridiculously expensive and useless undertaking for a rising power (how much more for them!).

    And the empire is not done with them by a long-shot; they’ll be asked to pony up for their defense spending in order to be able to field an army against Russia in a couple of years, or in order to rebuild the rump state of Ukraine, or both.

    All these costs coming simultaneously can only result in a drastic reduction in their standard of living and/or massive social unrest.

    If there is still anyone there who is considering their situation objectively, they may well have concluded that every time in the last century that Germany has been fighting the Anglo alliance, they’ve been made to pay a very heavy toll and will be labeled nazis any time they step away from this alliance.

    The fact that they are now actively participating in the same total war against Russia that they themselves were victims of is not enough to cause them to play a more conciliatory role in this conflict, is to my mind a measure of the total control of their government which the empire exercises.

    It seems that the current course the empire has set itself and its vassals on is completely unsustainable, and the greater the pain the greater the chance that the alliance will crack. But the closer to cracking, the greater the chance the empire will use another false flag operation to change the whole game once again to its favor.

    It remains to he seen how often they’ll be able to get away with it.

    Exactly. Nord Stream II is complete and ready to use, but Germany refuses to use it.

    Therefore, even if Siemens released the turbine for Nord Stream I, Germany would still not use Nord Stream I.

    Germany would say that it shut down Nord Stream I in order to “deprive Putin of energy revenues,” even though Russia is collecting more energy revenues than ever.

    Meanwhile Russian gas has been flowing along the 3,000-km (1,865 mile) “Power of Siberia” pipeline to China since 2019, built with Russian and Chinese technology. Gas flows are now at record levels. Gazprom delivered 10.4 billion cubic meters of gas to China in the first six months of 2022. China pays for this gas in rubles and Chinese yuan, not in western currencies.

    Incidentally German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s foreign policy was largely based on deepening economic cooperation with Russia as the provider of cheap energy. Germany reversed all of this and did an about-face when the money powers purged Merkel and installed Olaf Scholz (8 Dec 2021).

    I’m an electrical engineer. I live in the real world where solar and wind are never going to supply base load simply because the sun goes down and the wind isn’t constant. If you can debunk this common sense logic, then please do so. I suggest you look up base load because you probably have no idea what it represents.

    Suggesting that batteries, pumped hydro, gravity storage and other options are going to make up for the unavailability of generating capacity at night or when the weather turns bad is a ludicrous idea. Here’s a video about the battery fantasy:

    Your concentrated solar idea has been tried several times and most of them have been decommissioned for various reasons. Again, they can’t produce power when the sun doesn’t shine so have no effect on base load at night or cloudy days. None of them came or come close to the generating capacity of a typical fossil fuel power plant.

    I wrote the thermodynamics modeling software for Con Ed in New York. Their Ravenswood facility has 3 generating plants with #3 alone at 1100MW as I recall. None of the concentrated solar experiments come close to what a single typical large city sized electrical power plant produces. The amount of land area required would be enormous and located at such distances from where the power gets used that the line losses in transmission would seriously effect efficiency.

    You’re the typical know nothing with an opinion that telegraphs ignorance on a grand scale. If all you younger folks are going to rely on the fantasy of solar and wind, you’re going to be in sorry shape.

    Man you don’t let up with everywhere is Serbia, but keep on trying. You’ve got stiff competition.

    Cue: Tears for Fears “Everybody wants to rule the world”.

    But I like what the Russians say “Everywhere is Russia except Kosovo is Serbia.”

    (But to be fair, I agree that the LDPRs are actually Serbs, with some Greeks, without most of them knowing it. The thing is because of the similarity in cultures and religions the Serbs there integrated so well that now they think they’re Russians. So the Serb volunteers fighting for LDPRs are not mercenaries but fighting to defend their own people from UkroNazis and NATO, just like they did against CroatoNazis and NATO in Yugoslavia. Pity the Serbian law doesn’t recognise this and treats them as mercenaries).

    No. ‘The market’ is only a small part of their lying rhetoric. The market-scam goes something like this:

    1. Govt. privatises something [electricity, say], selling bits off to the highest bidders, then lets them compete; the most efficient will grab market share and we’ll all get lower prices. Hooray!

    2. What really happens is that the quality of services goes down, maintenance is reduced to the minimum and prices eventually go up, but ‘the market’ can’t be wrong, and the govt. has offloaded all responsibility.

    3. A secondary effect is ruthless ‘hire and fire,’ the workforce gets a) reduced then b) overworked and underpaid. But again, the market can’t be wrong!

    4. Privatised implies profits to be ruthlessly extracted, adding an unneeded extra to the price rises.

    All this runs counter to the concept of govt. being there to govern the country in the interests of the people. Democracy, my arse.

    Anthropogenic global warming is a scam perpetrated by wealthy people against the average working man. Don’t believe it? Then why are wealthy people allowed private jets and not made to fly on regularly scheduled commercial airlines? On a per capita basis commercial flights produce much less pollutants. Why are wealthy people still permitted private yachts which are major pollutants? Why are wealthy people still buying oceanfront property if the seas are rising? To prevent wealthy seaside property owners from scamming new buyers who are unaware of the rising seas, shouldn’t it be required that oceanfront property can only be sold at cost? Why is there no limit on the size of a house, say 3,000 square feet, to reduce pollutants? Why aren’t houses larger than the limit required to be torn down to save the planet?

    Modern coal plants are anything but “dirty” unless you are following the False God of Climate and saying CO2 is dirty. With scrubbers for sulphur (not all coal contains it) and bag house particulate systems, modern coal generation plants are as clean as natural gas. My first two jobs after retirement from the Navy, was at Eielson AFB and Fort Wainwright, near Fairbanks Alaska. Both co-gen plants (electricity and steam heat) were built in the 50’s. With the exception of the “bag house” in line with the induced draft fan, some new pumps and a reverse osmosis water system, were pretty much the same as built. Very “clean” burning. No sulfur in Alaska sub-bituminous coal. No coal ash emitted to the atmosphere. Coal plant design has improved a lot since overthrow traveling grate systems. It is only “politics” that prevents wide spread use of this abundant resource. FWIW, University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) also has a coal burning co-gen plant. Vast amounts of coal in Alaska. I was told there is a 300 year supply in the rail belt alone. Which is a tiny fraction of the state

They don’t understand the difference between fact confirmed by experimentation and actual empirical analysis versus some theory that claims to represent the truth via computer modeling. The climate zealots in particular think that extrapolating from one proxy to the next to the next is actually equivalent to proof.

    The anti nuclear folks keep pointing to the dangers of nuclear energy when it is by far the safest form of large scale energy on the planet. Yes, there have been some screwups, but on the whole it’s a remarkable achievement that’s provided power for decades using old technology. The newer designs are an order of magnitude safer, produce a tiny fraction of the waste and actually burn up the old waste as usable fuel thus lowering the amount of nuclear waste on the planet.

    It’s the people saying “do you want fries with that”, working some gov’t job, have a degree in economics or some other nonsense that think they know enough to have an opinion worth sharing about science and technology that are the ones so damned sure they have the answer.

    Mr. Bill, I’m not an engineer, but I served aboard five ballistic missile submarines (nuclear powered). Base load power. When the OOD ordered Ahead Full from a 1/3 bell, the throttleman opened the throttles which resulted in colder water returning to the steam generators, which cooled the primary coolant, which permitted more neutrons to be absorbed resulting in more power output. It automatically varied depending on demand. As I’m sure you know. Dittos the coal fired co-gen plants I worked at in Alaska after the Navy. In the morning when folks got up to shower and cook, you could hear the stokers increase their volume of throw, and the FD fans wind up. All in response to demand. It’s a beautiful thing. The so-called “renewables” have zero feedback from demand. It’s a sick, hugely expensive joke. The only large scale worthwhile project that could be done with wind and solar are desalination plants in California. They are running short of water and it’s only going to get worse. Base load power is not needed in this application, because the end product, fresh water is stored in a reservoir.

I would have subsidies for consumer generating their own solar electricity than big and foreign oil companies who use the handouts to buy offshore drilling right in auction and never exercise their rights to explore/drill therefore restricting the small developers getting into the game. Well that is a game. Where are those climate change slogan lovers, green peace activists and Sierra Club hired guns. I am sure that Solar energy could not be a bed of roses with some problems assiciated. but it should be debated and investigated.

    I remember about 15 or so years ago an inventor had five patents on solar cells that could increase the existing 25-30% conversion or efficiency to 80%. Sounds promising. Then the green president who actually was black did not take advantage of such American innovations. Exxon tried to buy all of the patents but the old guy refused. Guess what? the green president’s white house made several contacts with the patent holder and tried to persuade the old guy to sell the patent rights to Exxon Mobil. The old man is dead now and his son has not sold the patents to Exxon, not yet.

Thus Russia does not need Siemens and the like to reroute to China all its formerly European supplies to save them from winter coal smog (and the Chinese are set to have their cities have clean air in winter).

    The doomsayers of the climate change or global warming, as opposed to the global cooling of the seventies, trace their climate history backward to 1850. They are not willing to zoom out to many thousands of years back in history because that will show that climate has changed on many occasions irrespective of fossil fuel consumption. BUT global cooling has proven to be more of disaster than global warming, for while the latest major global warming occurred more than 12000 years ago and led to a dramatic increase the arable lands on this planet, the brief periods of global cooling led to shortages in foodstuffs and high death rates.

    The world’s elites hate fossil fuel because it gives the hoi polloi the chance to lead lives that were once the preserve of the elites. One of these activities where overcrowding disgusts the elites is tourism or travelling for pleasure courtesy of the advances made in land and air travel through machines that run on fossil fuel. Economic growth driven by relatively cheap and efficient fossil fuel energy raises the standard of living of the masses and that renders the elites less special and more frustrated. So the war against fossil fuel by the WEF will not wane for those people are imbued by a sense of superiority based on their presumed higher intelligence with most of them being the new Jacobins at heart while others among them parade their communist affiliation without reserve like Klaus Schwab displaying the bust of Lenin on his bookshelves.

    Europeans are being used now as the Guinea pigs of the new green energy and they seem to be heading for the greatest winter of discontent the world has ever known while the spike in fossil fuel energy prices, engineered by deliberate sabotage by the new European commissars, will cause the starvation of millions in the third world where people live hand to mouth.

    Hi RoatanBill, since you an elect engineer and with interest in this “climate change” thing, may I raise a few questions for my knowledge:

    1. This so-called “climatology”: is it a hard science (think physics, chemistry, most engineering disciplines) or something closer to meteorology (genuine discipline but its truths are probabilistic not deterministic) or a pseudoscience close to sociology, economics, etc. or something that can best be called “crapology” (think gender studies)? If I understand this thing, these green gurus are the same folks who forty years ago were screaming at the top of their voices that the planet is cooling down.

    2. Now these nuclear electricity generators: would it not be safer (if viable) to make small (micro?) facilities and spread them around, preferably away from densely populated areas? I don’t fear these but “spreading eggs in small baskets scattered all over” may mitigate risks (however small) even further.

    Thanks for mentioning load following. Load following is one of the benefits of how the physics of nuclear works. It’s a very beneficial side effect. Traditional power plants have to control that issue but with nuclear it’s part of the physics.

    The modern designs turn what once was another problem into a benefit whereby the liquid salt reactors self regulate if they get hotter than design temperature. As the liquid expands due to excess heat, the reaction falters which slows the reaction cooling down the salt. A run away is at least theoretically impossible as a “freeze plug” at the bottom of the reactor melts and evacuates the molten salt into storage tanks where it can cool off with a completely stopped reaction.

    The failure at Fukushima was caused not by a nuclear explosion, which is what most people think, but a hydrogen gas explosion when the fuel rod cladding reacted to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen gas that essentially made the elements of a conventional gas bomb and it went off blowing the top of the containment building away which then released some radioactivity into the environment. The modern designs don’t need containment buildings because they operate at neat atmospheric pressure at high temperatures where you get the best conversion efficiencies for gas turbines.

    The original mistake was to go with solid fuel. The second mistake was to go with uranium. Eric Weinberg, the inventor of both the light water reactor in common use today and the molten salt reactor that China is actively developing now warned against solid fuel pressurized reactors, championing the molten salt thorium version, but was ignored.

    The point of this article is not to bash the United States, but to provide historical evidence showing the stark difference between Washington’s approach to foreign policy and Russia’s. The questions are intended to help the reader review the historical facts– as we all know them– and decide for himself if the perpetrator of the current crisis is more likely to be the United States or Russia. The evidence– we think– clearly suggests that the blame lies with Washington, which is conducting another regionally-destabilizing operation aimed at strengthening its grip on global power.

    Now if you were Odyssey who sees in everything victimisation of Serbs, even by their Greek Orthodox brothers, you could ask yourself if the Russians and Putin really care that much about those LDNR peoples. After all they were very slow in reacting to protect them from the UkroNazi genocide, and even now they are sacrificing far too many of the LDNR militia and civilians with the UkroNazis still using Adeevka just outside Donetsk as a base to launch attacks against civilians even after six months of operations. I don’t know much but I got the impression that LDNRs were trying to build something new and not just to become satellites of either Russia or the Ukraine, and this probably annoyed Putin and his oligarchs. Now instead of the LDNRs becoming independent and spreading their original concept of Orthodox Christian socialism into Russia and elsewhere they will just end up being absorbed and becoming whatever Russia wants them to be, probably a colony in servitude of the Russian oligarchy (if I wanted to be really cynical).

    But maybe Putin did a right thing to brand his SMO as an anti-Nazi operation, at least as far as garnering support of the Russian people who hate Nazism because of WWII. Now what the Russian people should be asking themselves is why isn’t international Jewry fanatically behind their anti-Nazi operation. I don’t think Putin, Lavrov et al are naive enough to have expected Jewish support, well, maybe just a little more than they actually got. The opposition of international Jewry and their controlled MSM to the Russian anti-Nazi SMO is stark enough to be noticed by anyone who cares to look at it. Obviously most Westerners don’t as to them it’s just fraudulent lying anti-Semitism to claim that the Jews control anything let alone their own governments, banks, media, academia, Hollywood; it’s all just vile nonsense that only a very drunk Australian actor/director would come up with in his dull stupefied drunken no-brain outburst for which he must be made to pay by being ostracised from the movie industry for the rest of his miserable life.

    I believe that the climate fear mongers honestly think that what they say is based upon “science”. They have been miseducated to believe that computer modeling based upon theories, which are based upon field work, which is based upon proxy measurements based upon more theories, etc, etc, etc means they are doing science. They are wrong. They have a false sense of how the climate works which is obvious to even a casual observer in that all their models aren’t worth spit. How they fail to notice that they are consistently wrong is a wonder.

    The climate system is arguably one of the most complex systems in existence. That they think that in a few decades, they know enough, despite their wrong predictions, to not only offer suggestions to where things are heading, but make demands that we listen to them is mind boggling. At this stage, they are frauds. If they were more humble and admit to knowing very little I could be more generous with an assessment.

    The latests nuclear reactor designs are based upon the Small Modular Reactor (SMR) concept. These are built in factories and shipped to a prepared site to be installed, possibly along with other units, to reach some desired output level. The whole idea is to get away from pressurized reactors, cooling tower, solid fuel rods and all the old existing problems the new designs were intending to fix.

    The other goal was to limit the time it takes to get a site operational thereby reducing the carrying costs consumed during the old method of construction. The many years of money being consumed while the plant is not producing power is a dead loss that consumers eventually pay for. Because these newer designed units are factory built, there’s less regulatory involvement which also reduces cost and time to start producing power.

    As for the green fanatics, just look at the ones with signs. You know, the fat women with pink hair with a vacuum between their ears or the nancy boys with nothing better to do. These people are so butt ignorant that they are the target of the hucksters making money off this scam. Low IQ peoples are easy to influence. Some of the controllers in the space want the carbon trading system to become a source of immense wealth while raising cost on everyone while producing nothing but a wealth transfer to the likes of Al Gore. Some want to delay the transition to newer technology making their capital investments last longer. The gov’t sees it as just another opportunity for control and more power. Lots of people have their reasons, none of them legitimate for hard scientific reason.

    It is a long talk, but there is much information in it:

    Who benefits, this is not a singular group, and the benefits are not fixed. First of all, many who benefit are not fanatics, they are cynics, exploiting the scam. Really no adult really lies awake of the doom scenario, only the children who are indoctrinated really believe these scenarios.

    At first there was carbon trading, carbon itself now got a price:

    Moreover, there is a whole industry involved, and also a lot of government money. Loads of people and industries benefit in various ways, up to your local heath supplier, and up to your neighbour being able to buy a subsidized car, solar cells, etc. The solar cell and wind turbine industry, and related industries, banks, politicians pushing agenda’s, etc. Everybody makes money out of it in various ways. Suddenly there are tons of official climate change experts, it is a new popular fashion, thus new jobs are made out of it, up to new academic disciplines (climate transition professor, climate transition manager), and jobs for bureaucrats. Even the fossil fuel industry themselves, those who wanted to sell natural gas at first tried to benefit from it, because gas contains less CO2 then other fossil fuels. So they thought they could enlarge their market this way.
    Really, it is a shifting and irrational thing, those who want to make money out of it, or gain power through it, really have to be creative and up to date regarding the latest fashion. Not everybody wins too.
    Thus, there is no single who, there are parties who cash in fast and disappear, others are long time cashing in, some loose, etc.
    There is only one thing you need to know, a gigantic amount of money is involved, and gigantic value creation, value out of thin air, and you want to grab that money fast before someone else does, or before the thing has moved on to the next phase. It is irrational in terms of logic and science, but in term of money, control and making carreers, it is fully rational…

    If it was possible to feel sorry for someone/thing as stupidly evil as Putina it might be on this very point you mention: Was it smart for him to pander to Jews and his own brainwashed people to brand his stupid war as “Russia saves the world from Nazis again!”?

    Surely he must know that all that “Ebil Not-Sees / Holy-Hoax / Raping Russians were the good guys” stuff that he and his predecessors built the Russian masses civic mythology of virtue (and sadly of grievance too), upon is utter bullshit.

    And yet he seemed to expect the big Jews to cut him slack for using that as an excuse to invade Ukraine?

    C’mon Puty-Poot, don’t you know that only Jews are supposed to benefit from Jew lies?

    They are jealous masters of their anti-white, genocidal, Holy-Hoaxing, Ebil-Not-See lies.
    They don’t wanna share their victim — they want to drain all the blood into their own blood-funnel, not yours! You don’t get to share in the raping! (Well you did in World War Jew point 2 that’s true).

    … And yet La Putina Estupina, the dumbest fricking global 4-d chess-master in the universe, tries to paint Jew-ridden and Jew-run (with a Jew-comedian cum Prime Miniters to boot!), Ukraine as a den of “Ebil Not-Sees” that Russia has to Rape and Conquer to save the world yet again!!! ?

    Rilly Vlad?

    What a fool.

    He coulda been somebody.

    He coulda opened the old JewSSR archives and put the final stake in the heart of the HolyHoax, apologized for past Russian evil, and offered to help lead the fight against Jewish global hegemony and white-genocide.

    This would have knocked the Jews on their ass, REALLY have thrown a cat among the traitorous Shabbos pigeons running Western governments and completely reshuffled the deck, thrown the dice, changed the timeline.

    Risky sure, but better a risk than to be a stupid stupid Putin Pindaho and step right into the character scripted for him and right onto the slippery slope down to obvious and inevitable destruction that was helpfully screaming and blinking red lights “its a trap, its a trap!” right in front of him.

    It was so bloody obvious only a man insulated from reality, not to mention morality, only some Jumped up KGB looser could f*ck up like Putin.

    The only thing Sadder than Putin is the people who idolize him, and the only thing sadder than them all is all the people of the world suffering because this stupid war he started.

    Can you imagine how embarrassing it would be, if Putina takes this to full Nuclear war, when future sentient cockroaches (or space aliens), piece together the history of our fall and realize that it was some smug moron like Putin acting on Jew Lies who destroyed all the promise of our race and its civilization?

You buy the individual cells, string them in series/parallel/combination depending on voltage required add a Battery Management System (BMS) and you’re good to go.

    More like “Build Back Baloney”.

    The Left, Jewish or Black, thinks of that communication is something that has an effect on the recipient(s). That’s how air raids became “messages to Hanoi” during the Vietnam War, and how actions such as imprisoning MAGA demonstrators after 6/1 became political “messaging”. It’s also how “trash talk” became taken seriously as communication, and how “communication” has taken on the meaning once reserved for “manipulation.

    The idea that “messages” convey “information” survives in computer engineering, using Shannon’s information theory, and of course it survives in everyday life as well among some ethnic groups under some circumstances.

    Taking a liberal phrase like “Build Back Better” (or for that matter “Hello”) as conveying any more information than a .45 slug coming your way is a mistake.

    But believing in anything the left says is true is, of course, right out. You can’t have truth when there is no information.

It was an air heat pump with a supersized evaporator. The minimum COP was 4-5. Typical air heat pump is around 2-3. Electrical heating is 1. Geothermal heat pump is around 3-4.

    • Replies: @RoatanBill
  165. @Sam Smith

    Old lead acid batteries usually fail due to sulfation on the plates. Once it gets too severe, there’s no turning back. The charging circuit is supposed to prevent sulfation by purposely overcharging them periodically to get the chemistry to put the sulfur back in the H2SO4. As the sulfur is removed from the acid, it weakens the ability of the battery to move charge. There are techniques using a welder to put a serious boost into a lead acid cell, but I’d consider that a relatively dangerous move since massive amounts of hydrogen gas would be released. The Internet has details.

    If the batteries are of some other chemistry there’s little to be done. The trick is to not abuse the batteries, especially lead acid. That’s what a good BMS is for, to cut the battery off from conditions that would hurt them.

Indeed, only a couple of decades later LBJ lectured the US Congress about the dangers of greenhouse gas pollution, some years after the fossil fuel capi had noted the problem in internal documents, and decades after others had noted the problem, including in a 1912 article in a New Zealand newspaper. Today, of course, it is too late to worry. None of this has ANYTHING to do with ‘ethnocentric supremacy’, just science.

    You just paint yourself an ignorant fanatic. Not only is the science of anthropogenic climate destabilisation steadfast after nearly 200 years of explication, but the evidence from reality ie melting montane glaciers, melting ice-sheets in Greenland and Antarctica, disappearing Arctic summer sea ice, warming lakes and rivers, melting permafrost, changes in distributions of pests and diseases, phenological changes in leaf and blossom budding and burst, increases in global average temperatures, maxima and minima, and increasingly extreme weather events, eg droughts, deluges, floods, wind extremes, ‘heat domes’, cold air excursions from high latitudes secondary to polar vortices collapse etc, is IRREFUTABLE.
    To declare it all an ‘adult-mob lie’ is a sign either of moral insanity, idiocy, pig ignorance, cultic belief in deserved, even ordained, human destruction, possibly ‘religious’, or some combination of these.

    I am really in awe of you pig stupidity. Natural gas, has less CO2, declares the arrogant buffoon, but is principally methane, a greenhouse gas far worse than CO2, and gas installations and extractions wells leak prodigiously. But, even though methane is scores of times more effective, ie damaging as a greenhouse gas, it does change after a period in the atmosphere-to CO2.
    Of course, being a moral vacuole, you project your own greed onto those warning of greenhouse destabilisation, and assert that they are only interested in money. Unlike your fossil fuel friends (or paymasters?)who make more money from destroying life on Earth than any other industry EVER. An industry worth orders of magnitude more than renewables.

    “ There is something to say for the irritation regarding the hoi polloi invading everything.“

    I did visit Florence, Siena and many other beautiful Italian cities back in 1985 as a young man for the first time. I remember entering the beautiful Cathedral of Florence, called the Duomo, and many other gems of Renaissance architecture without waiting in line and without paying anything. Fast forward to 2013, when I revisited along with my family and decided to skip many attractions because of the long lines of tourists, many of them Asians of the Johnny come lately type, for I thought it was not worth the wait of many hours to get inside the monuments. That was disappointing to my family but this hardly stirred in me any feelings of animosity towards the new tourists coming from many third world countries who could afford what most of their compatriots could not three decades ago. I or anyone else does not possess the right to decide for others what or what not to do. Such matters are better left to market mechanisms to sort out.

    “ In fact, you should have a Lenin bust on your bookshelves yourself, because this ‘haughty elite oppressor’ narrative is one of thé classical methods of hoi polloi leaders.”

    I am not sure I grasp the meaning of your “ hoi polloi leaders.“ I wish you can clearly classify them. If you mean by this populist politicians, that would not make them leaders but opportunists like all other politicians. If you mean by that leaders of the John Kennedy or the Charles De Gaulle types who fought for the right of the people to live in dignity with less fear, then I would much rather have on my bookshelves the busts of these great STATESMEN as opposed to one from the tyrants and politicians category where your mediocre Lenin belongs.

As we now know, most of the older models under-estimated the pace and breadth of climate destabilisation. To say that they invented it all is MORONIC GARBAGE.
    The climate system is complex and chaotic. That makes it near impossible to accurately predict future events because of the sensitivity to initial conditions of chaotic systems, but we don’t need accurate predictions. We have simple observation. a temperature of 49 degrees Celsius in British Columbia, the first forty degree C day in recorded history in England, deep drought in the USA, Mexico, Europe, China, the Horn of Africa all at the same time, while Pakistan drowns with 800% of the usual monsoon rainfall in Baluchistan and we could go on all day, and you say, what?

    The common people might be slow but they’re not all stupid. And when Germans figure out that both North Stream 1 and 2 are ready to go but are blocked by politics, it won’t be pleasant.
    The German government might eventually have to admit that Ukraine (and its guarantors France and Germany) broke international law when they abandoned the Minsk agreement, and that Russia is not evil

    Well, if the common German people do wake up to the D-govt.’s North Stream idiocy and start to demo, the govt. are preparing to term any/all demonstrators ‘extremist conspiracy activists,’ as I’ve previously noted, presumably hinting at dire counter-measures. Some politicians are partly awake; here’s a rather nice one:

    “German MP names ‘stupidest government’ in Europe
    Left-wing politician Sahra Wagenknecht slammed her government for causing a ‘fatal’ economic war with Russia”

    So far so good, but looks like she got the ZUSA memo – in that she does not name the criminals in the Ukraine conflict:

    While describing the ongoing conflict in Ukraine as a “crime,” Wagenknecht said the anti-Russian sanctions are “fatal” for Germany itself. With energy prices out of control, the country’s economy will soon “just be a reminder of the good old days,” the MP warned, as she urged cancelling the restrictions and engaging in talks with Russia.
    “We really have the stupidest government in Europe,” she told the parliament, calling for Habeck to resign

    Next ‘well,’ we do know who the criminals in the Ukraine imbroglio are, i.e. *not* Russian. Habeck resigning would be a good start, but it seems to me that it’s up to Lindner/FDP to pull the plug on ‘the Ampel’ – and he would make himself a hero, in contrast to an earlier FDP treachery thanks, but “No, thanks!” to Genscher. rgds

    The fact is also that Russians are one of Serbian outfits which have a separate name since the 8th c.AC. Russian (and other Slavic) language evolved from Serbian (I will provide a couple illustrations). In a Russian deep memory and folklore is still that they came to Russia from Danube over Carpathians. Serbs (and Scandinavians, who also originated in Vinca) are European aborigines.

    I admit that I find the Avdeevka problem puzzling. Though I can think of a number of reasons why it hasn’t been liberated yet, I find none of them morally justified.

    With regards to the Donbass’s independence, there had to be a really good justification for Russia to recognise it. Unlike Crimea, whose inhabitants never wanted to be part of Ukraine and have seen their rights repeatedly violated by Kiev ever since 1991, the people of the Donbass voted overwhelmingly, for Ukraine’s independence then, I think there were >80% in favour of separating from Russia.

    As for them become a colony of the Moscow and St Petersburg oligarchs, I think the Kremlin is treading in a thin line with regards to how keen the people in the liberated oblasts are to become subjugated by another central power and I think they know it.

    Imho, the best course of action is to proclaim an autonomous republic of Ukraine within the Russian Federation, just as Crimea or Tatarstan or Chechnya or Ossetia. Or better, proclaim an autonomous Cossack republic, and even extend it East to the Don, since after all, the lands being liberated are historically Cossack lands and they had a great deal of autonomy in the Russia of Tsars, before the Bolsheviks.

  194. Sanctions, Not Renewable Energy, to Blame For the Crisis

    Pepe, there is no explanation from you why the build-up of renewable energy (RE) in Europe should have anything to do with, much less take the blame for, the current European energy crisis. What you bring are just baseless accusations, driven by ideology, not facts. Small wonder, because RE don’t have anything to do with the crisis. Instead, their build-up significantly mitigates the situation. Like in: big-time. E.g., while you fail to mention the huge and quickly growing contribution of RE to electicity generation (and, therefore, gas substitution) in Europe, over the summer months from May to August, Europe saved USD 29 bn in gas payments due to solar electricity alone. These are huge numbers. Nuclear, on the other hand, is failing miserably, as in the country that uses it the most (France), 32 out of 56 reactors are currently offline due to a host of problems at the aging and corroding reactors, so France has to import wind and solar generated electricity from Germany in order to avoid blackouts.

    But facts don’t really seem to bother you in your rant against RE. Only in the second part of the article it seems to kind of occur to you that the sanctions, rather than RE, might have something to do with the energy crisis. But sanctions are not renewable energy. Don’t try to make fools of your readers.

    Hitler didn’t come out a winner and his war resulted in Germany still being subjugated by USA, something Putin would wish to avoid. Anyway, Hitler is highly regarded in the Muslim world and much of Asia and elsewhere in the Third World, as is Putin. Also most people in such countries are well aware of the Jewish lies and scams, and people like Mahatir Mohammed and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad don’t need Putin to tell them anything about the Jews, and neither did Moamar Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein. Russians have a more complicated relationship with Jews, perhaps something akin to what the West has although nowadays somewhat freer from their control, but to what extent I don’t know as I have no experience of the place. I suspect Jews and cryptos still control a lot over there despite so many emigrating to Israel. But then many Jews from France, USA and elsewhere in the West have emigrated to Israel too but still control much of the West. I would like to think that most of the Jews who remained in Russia are somehow more patriotic and work for Russia’s interest, unlike the Jews in the West, but I really don’t know. Obviously many are hostile and Putin has tried to cut down their influence by banning their NGOs and suppressing some of their oligarchs. Anyway Putin is a calmer and more calculating person that Hitler was.

Since this will drastically reduce human activity and the number of humans, it will also address the other major problem, namely, climate change.

    The photons streaming in from the sun are not heat. Heat is a byproduct of the physics reaction when photons strike a surface and cause molecules to vibrate which causes friction which produces heat. The photons that strike a solar panel are converted to electricity at a relatively poor ratio of about 20% efficiency, so about 80% is wasted and turned into heat.

    Simple arithmetic then says that the 20% that became electricity was 20% that did not produce heat and consequently a solar panel can in no way increase the heat in an area. To argue otherwise would mean that for a given quantity of energy from the sun that if it strikes a solar panel, more heat is generated than if it hits a roof AND that electricity was somehow a byproduct. In any given area where solar panels are converting solar energy to electricity means there’s less energy to be converted to heat.

    I don’t know. However Germany and the British delivered weapons to Guaido and supported the killing of hundreds in Venezuela, under the FALSE pretext of protecting human rights.

    Russia recently offered to delete Argentina’s debt (caused by corrupt people who accepted to indebt Argentina by accepting Soros’ money.) However, pressure is exerted on Argentina to make sure the IMF debt will not be erased. This might be because deleting Argentina’s debt would partially (or totally) smash the trade pact between the EU and the Mercosur bloc of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay.


    Brazil Becomes China’s Main Investment Destination

    ‘Also noteworthy was the purchasing of the power transmission company in Rio Grande do Sul by State Grid and of the Mercedes-Benz plant in Iracemápolis (SP) by Great Wall Motors.

    According to a report by the Brazil-China Business Council to be released this Wednesday (31), investment from the Asian country has jumped by 208% in nominal terms (disregarding inflation), to US\$ 5.9 billion, the peak in four years.

    China’s presence has become one of the topics of the presidential campaign.

    To entrepreneurs, Minister Paulo Guedes (Economy) said he did not want “the ‘Chinese’ entering here, breaking our factories, our industries”, and former President Lula, who believes China is “taking over Brazil”, has expressed his concern regarding the advance of the Asian country in the local industry.’


    EU contacts Brazil to resume Mercosur trade pact talks

    ‘Last month, European Member of Parliament Anna Cavazzini and two other MEPs of the Greens/EFA political group visited Brazil to evaluate the threat to the Amazon from illegal gold mining and logging that has surged under Bolsonaro. She told Reuters environmental concerns meant there was no way the trade deal would pass with Bolsonaro in office.

    France, the EU’s biggest agricultural producer, is one of the most vocal opponents of the agreement and said last year there was no chance of ratifying it.’


    Brazil wants to change Mercosur rule to make agreements without Argentina viable

    Brasília – ‘In the wake of Argentina’s announcement that it will abandon negotiations on Mercosur agreements, the Brazilian government wants to suggest changes in the bloc’s operating rules to make commercial deals feasible without the participation of the neighboring country.

    Brazilian negotiators argue that rules in force today may hinder the progress of future agreements if there is no endorsement from the Argentine government. The idea, according to a report made to Folha, is to remove these locks.

    This concerns not only future initiatives but also dialogues that have already formally started in recent years with countries such as Canada, South Korea, Lebanon, and Singapore.

    Created in 1991, Mercosur has founding members Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay. Venezuela joined the bloc in 2012 but has been suspended since 2016.

    On Friday (24), Argentina announced it would stop participating in the negotiations for Mercosur trade agreements, except for the two most important ones in progress, with the European Union and the European Free Trade Association (Efta).

    Argentina said it made the decision because the priority now is to fight the coronavirus and the internal economic emergencies caused by the pandemic. In the statement, he said that “it will not be an obstacle for other countries to continue with their different negotiation processes.’

    I have worked over 40 years in Chemical, Petroleum, and nuclear industries (disposal of nuclear wastes) in the environmental arena. Mostly in design and pollution prevention.

    Prevent pollution before it is created, through processes, operator training, house keeping, and procedural changes. It saves the cost of treatment after pollution is generated. I know it is above your head but let us continue.

Pay attention now………… these are bad, bad,,,bad… Like Benzene, Hexane, Toluene C6H5CH3 (Learn to pronounce it. Lot of people have difficult time pronouncing it) and heavy HCs. But with proper combustion these are converted to CO2 and Water. OK.

    Yes there is always negative impact by industrial activity. But this Climate change is hyped because of political and Bankers. I am not saying there is no climate change. But listen carefully and pay attention. The folks who are pushing for it are economist, Historians, writers and not the Scientists.

    I was a consultant to Scientific Advisory Board on Environmental matters. Look that up. This board is mandated by US congress and not by the executive branch. EPA has not control over this entity.

    Listen one more time. There is technology out there to curb emission but Bankers dont want it. They want emission trading, carbon foot print BS. Or this hoax about ISO-14000.

    100% strikes the panel, just as it strikes the roof. 20% approximately get converted to electricity leaving ONLY 80% of the original to be converted to heat.

    Without the panel, 100% gets converted to heat. Therefore the panel converts what would be heat to usable electricity thereby reducing the amount of heat that would normally occur without the panel by the 20%.

    Assuming the electricity was used to run a motor or light bulb, the energy required to rotate the motor shaft or the light emitted as photons from the bulb are not heat. That there are line losses in wires is a given and they do produce heat as a result of resistance, inductance and other factors, but the bulk of the electricity gets to the appliance.

    Of the nominal 20% I used as my example, the wire losses would hardly be measurable in a typical home installation since the wire runs are short. Appliances generate heat so some of that 20% does return to heat. However, the energy expended to convert electricity to mechanical motion, light, sound, etc consumes energy that does not return to heat.

    The original premise was that Solar panels add heat to a system which is impossible. That the electricity generated is used on things that will produce heat can never equal the total energy. That a large majority of the 20% will eventually become heat as it’s used is possible and probable, but it can’t be more heat than the system originally had.

    Your hypothesis;
    The practice and the corresponding theory is, the panels have a higher radiation than most roofing materials.Thermal imaging shows it. Taking temperatures (surface temps and distances) shows it.
    A clay roof tile will react differently than a slick mirror surface; re. outward the mirror effect. E.g. compare a forest ground with the sealed ground of an airport side by side: The closed area will have a much higher average temperature than the unsealed area. The micro climate of the airport will differ greatly to the micro climate of the unsealed area, especially the planted area. Comparatively extreme thermography results with panels on a gras roof

    ‘Russian terrorist troops have struck infrastructure facilities in Kharkiv, Poltava and Dnipropetrovsk. This was reported by Kharkiv mayor Igor Terekhov, Poltava regional military administration head Dmitry Lunin and Dnipropetrovsk OVA head Valentin Reznichenko on Sunday, September 11.’

    “The strike hit an infrastructure facility in Kharkiv. As a result of the strike – in many districts of the city there is no light. For the same reason there is no water in the same districts – pumps don’t work”, – noted Terekhov.

    The Kharkiv mayor also stressed that in this way Russia is taking revenge for the success of the Ukrainian army at the front, particularly in Kharkiv Region. Terekhov asked everyone to remain calm, because experts of the regional power supply company and our utility services are already working to repair the damage.

    Lunin wrote that electricity and water supply will soon be restored in Poltava region. Power engineers are already working.

    “Dnipropetrovsk region. September 11. 20.52. Some towns and communities of the region were left without light. The Russians have hit the energy infrastructure. They cannot accept defeats on the battlefield. But we can handle it. All services are already working. We will restore everything with the maximum possible speed, “- said Reznichenko.

    As Ukrainskiy Novyny reported, on September 11, the head of the Sumy Regional Military Administration (OVA) Dmytro Zhyvitsky reported that the voltage in the power grid dropped throughout the Sumy region.

    At the same time, about two thousand square kilometres of Ukrainian territory have been liberated from the Russian occupation in recent days. Our units have entered Kupyansk, the liberation of settlements in Kupyansk and Izyum districts of Kharkiv Region continues.

    The Russian Defence Ministry has acknowledged the flight of its military in Kharkiv Region and published a new map with a new front line.

And it’s all true, expect for the fact that private generators of solar and wind power do no longer get the kWh-price they were once promised, making them feel double-crossed by the government who once encouraged them to build the installations, with the prospect of seeing return on investment. Therefore, civil willingness to actively participate in such projects has been frustrated on top of the lost trust in all other energy management aspects of EU and national governments. Enforcing civil compliance through controlled energy availability and pricing seems to be the only strategy left. And after that, it’s up to riot control and military units to keep the masses down.

    F. William Engdahl is a brilliant expert and writer. Through him i learned for the first time that oil and gas deposits are only for a small part hydrocarbonized remains of ancient plants and animal, and that organic hydrocarbon compound are also chemically formed in the earth’s crust.

    You are correct – but China is also not shutting down coal capacity… It is building new cleaner coal plants to replace dirty ones. China knows that solar and wind cannot supply it’s needs. So hydropower is still being expanded too…. And they are going on the biggest nuclear power plant building spree the world has ever seen. Solar and wind are being built more in China than anywhere else on earth…. But they still won’t be in the top 3 sources of power for decades if ever…

    Germany risks being left without an industrial system due to a severe energy crisis, announced The Economist, which is in the sphere of influence of Rothschild.

    They stated that in recent years German industry has relied on cheap energy from Russia and the possibility of placing its products on the Chinese market. So now – due to anti-Russian sanctions, as well as the recession in the Chinese economy, it is faced with temptations at the level of the entire industrial system.

    Citing the president of the Association of German Industry, Siegfried Russwurm, the same paper indicates that production in Germany is in danger of declining and disappearing:

    “The situation looks ‘toxic’ for many companies. And through global supply chains, the ‘poison’ could spread to the rest of the industrialized world, which is heavily dependent on German manufacturers. The biggest problem for German industry is rising energy costs. The price of electricity for the next year, it has already increased 15 times, and gas has increased ten times”.

    The Economist claims that almost a quarter of German companies with fewer than 1,000 employees have cancelled or refused production orders.

    10,000 German producers of more than 3,000 types of bread, who cannot operate without electricity and gas, are also facing increasing problems.

    ArcelorMittal, the German steel giant, has announced the closure of two plants in northern Germany and sending employees on vacation.


    Russia confidently deals with the financial and technological aggression of some countries, their economic blitzkrieg tactics have failed, Vladimir Putin said at a meeting devoted to economic issues.

    “We prevented a sharp decline in the economy.” We also managed to quickly stabilize inflation. After a peak of 17.8 percent in April, it fell to 14.1 percent on September 5. We expect inflation to be around 12 percent by the end of the year,” the head of state emphasized.

    He emphasized that the Russian economy is gradually stabilizing and moving towards growth, that companies are returning to their normal rhythm of work. According to him, unemployment in Russia is at a historic low because in May-July it was 3.9 percent.

    Depopulation is INEVITABLE. We have way passed the carrying capacity of the planet, yet Rightwing psychopaths DEMAND that we go on, as before. Evil plus insanity.
    The choice is stark. Slow, humane, just population reduction, over decades, or abrupt depopulation through famine, war and pestilence. Already climate instability and weather disasters are wreaking havoc in agriculture and animal husbandry, and that can only get much, much, worse.
    The elites have a third alternative, naturally-depopulation through bio-warfare, which we see a preview of with SARS CoV2. Indeed, with poisonous ‘vaccines’ and ‘medications’, and new ‘variants’ waiting to be released, this may even be it.
    Denialists are either pig ignorant morons who cannot accept facts, delusionals who really believe in Free Market cornutopianism, or genocidists who imagine that the rich countries, even their serfs, will be spared, while the various untermenschen perish, leaving the world safe for the White, Western ubermenschen, the Herrenvolk, to go on living as they please.

    There has been huge and obvious improvement in photovoltaics and windmill power. There still needs to be huge reductions in the cost of large-scale, stationary power storage before either is practical on a large enough scale. Just think of the three Chinese provinces that produce more green energy than they can use but can’t eliminate non-green power.

    Practical energy storage for transport machines is even more challenging. Western European politicians have been lost in a dream that all problems have been solved.

    Thankfully, most people now realise that greenhouse warming is as real for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere as for the glass in greenhouses but that’s just step one in global warming politics. It’s more than a little difficult to guess the correct course when the required technology doesn’t exist. If asked for my opinion, I wouldn’t expect to be impressive at guessing.

    I really under-estimated your psychopathy. You really are barking mad, bad and dangerous to know.
    From your addle-brained assertions, life flourishes in the warmth, of course, but only up to a certain point. Where the ‘wet-bulb temperature’ (humidity plus temperature)passes 35 degrees Celsius, humans, unless artificially cooled, die of hyperthermia. As do animals, at different temperatures.
    Plants grow better with more CO2, but only if all else is unchanged ie water supply, heat extremes, pests and diseases etc. But, tragicomically for your pig ignorant assertions, rising global temperatures mean more frequent and deeper, longer, droughts, interspersed with huge deluges and floods, fierce winds and lethal hail. Moreover pests and diseases spread quicker and further in warmer conditions, and plants growing more quickly thanks to added CO2, are more susceptible to such. The rest is drooling Rightwing hatred and psychosis, as one would expect.

  293. Anymike says:

    That, and promoting the idea, which actually is true. Stratospheric jet aviation creates a vapor layer which reduces the diurnal temperature difference. Cooler in the daytime, warmer at night. Warmer nights may prevent ice from forming at high latitudes, if nothing else. No ice equals loss of glaciers.

    I don’t know what other effects might be possible, but there have to be some. It may be possible, also, that the meteorological effects of stratospheric jet aviation cannot be ameliorated by reducing CO2 emissions at ground level. I strongly suspect that is true.

  304. Two entertaining documentaries


    The Moorburg power plant, opened in 2015, was one of the most modern, innovative and efficient coal-fired power plants in Europe. With its two units, it was able to generate 11 terawatt hours of electricity per year, each with an output of 827 megawatts. This was enough for the entire Hamburg region. It was shut down in 2021 after only six years of operation. Now it is to be completely demolished. There is hardly any other example that more impressively illustrates the complete suicidal insanity of German energy policy.

    First of all, it is an ultimate MCA in economic and business terms to build by far the most modern, efficient and cleanest coal-fired power plant in Europe at a cost of almost three billion euros – only to demolish it again and dispose of it at great expense.

    Above all, however, Germany is depriving itself of an important and flexible factor in its energy security: coal-fired power plants of this type are able to react quickly to fluctuations resulting from the highly volatile and practically unpredictable feed-in of renewables (“flutter power” and the like). They would therefore be particularly suitable in the current situation to substitute our gas-fired power plants.

    From a technical point of view and under today’s conditions, especially in view of the existential energy crisis, this destruction of a proven and highly functional technology is a decision that is as ideologically motivated as it is costly. This insane policy of the Hamburg Senate, namely of the Green Senator for the Environment Jens Kerstan, no longer has anything to do with common sense.

    Attentive contemporaries are now even asking themselves whether this undertaking might be deliberate political sabotage – with the intention of ruining the already ailing economy, further weakening Germany as an industrial location and concretely endangering internal security?

    Btw., Germany also had the safest nuclear power plants in the world before the “globalists” shut them down by the executive hand of their faithful servant Merkel.

    Agree, but there is more to that.

    The Germans, among other Europeans, are very clearly on the war path again against Russia, as they were in both world wars. Many differences, including territorial boundaries, notwithstanding, both wars aimed to integrate Ukraine in a German-dominated united Europe that would be able to assert itself economically and militarily against France, Britain and other competitors (US). Food and energy security and autarchy were essential motives for incorporating Ukraine, and still are – for Germany and the EU.

    The US may well wish to reduce Germany/EU to dependent impoverished colonies but “ F the EU” Nuland made it clear that US and EU interests are not identical despite both adopting a pro-Ukraine and anti-Russian policy.

    It is hardly a coincidence that the three countries who have tried, over several centuries, to incorporate Ukraine plus other Russian territory, raced to Kiev during the Euro Maidan coup in Feb 2014 to offer an alternative, constitutional solution that was sabotaged by extremists with US support: Poland, France, Germany. They also supported the Minsk agreements that failed for the same reasons.

    Both could have avoided war. From the US perspective, war has the usual benefits for the MIC but also assures that any part of Ukraine left for the EU will be destroyed, polluted, and more or less worthless.

    The idiotic demand of the German government that all of Ukraine must be returned to Ukraine can only be fulfilled via all out war of EU/Nato against Russia, and this will almost certainly lead to massive destruction in Germany and Europe. Hitler thought the potential gain was worth it, as does, incredibly, the current German, Polish, French government. As did Napoleon. Despite losing and destroying 3 generations of French the French still revere him. We should not be fooled by Germany apparently showing no such reverence to Hitler. Properly disguised as green or feminist or European values, they still go for it – 3rd time in a century.

    As a German, I didn’t think I would see such stupidity and hypocrisy in my lifetime, but here we are.

  323. Over the past 120 years, Germany has used science to solve the problems of shortages of strategic materials. In and around the beginnings of the 20th century, they solved the problems of getting nitrogen out of air to make cheap armaments and fertilizer. In the 1930’s, they had a shortage of motor fuel and lubricating oils so they figured out ways of making these out of coal. If you have cheap electricity (nuclear reactors), you can make hydrogen out of water and go one step further and create methane (natural gas) by adding some carbon. Transporting natural gas thousands of miles by pipeline or ship is leaving yourself open to sabotage as Germany has found out. If they have the will, Germany will use this as an opportunity to go to start making their own hydrogen and natural gas from water.
