Frozen energy transition: Without fossil energies we would freeze to death now!
The current “winter roller” — perceived as a “natural disaster” by a public who will only be susceptible to horror alarmists in ten months’ time, although it is a normal, normal winter beyond all global warming narratives — is currently leading us above all, bear in mind that the “energy transition” is life-threatening, on a wrong path.
The visions of “renewable energies” can be bragged about at climate conferences; government policy can be greenwashed — for example, when Angela Merkel, deliberately dumbing down the masses’ speech at this year’s Davos Economic Forum, claims that Germany “now generates more than 40 percent of its energy from renewable energies” — although this misleading number only refers to electricity, i.e. electrical energy.
Without the share of fossil and nuclear power, Germany simply could not survive a cold spell like the one it is in now.
When there are few hours of sunshine and massive snowfall, hardly any energy can be drawn from so many installed solar energy systems — with the result that coal-fired power plants in particular currently have to run at full steam.
If the demands of delusional madwomen like Luisa Neubauer and her Fridays-for-Future sect, but also her Green sympathizers, had been implemented with an immediate phase-out of coal energy, Germans would now have to cut down their forests — and then, of course, cause even more CO2 toxicity — pushing logs into fires so they don’t freeze to death.
In Central Germany in particular, as the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung reports, the coal-fired power plant in Schkopau in the Saale district and the one in Lippendorf in Saxony have to work at full load in icy, sometimes [negative] double-digit temperatures.
Once again it is clear that alternative energy is a fair weather event in Germany.
The bizarre requirements to which the “energy turnaround” leads, which continues to worsen the ecological and carbon balance of renewable product forms, can be seen in the de-icing of frozen and ice-laden wind turbines by kerosene-powered helicopters.
Or in the total uselessness of electric cars, whose batteries simply cannot be used in the cold. In many cities, parts of the public transport system collapsed — because e-buses break down due to the cold.
Brave new “energy transition” world! It would not be surprising if, with this total structural failure of alleged green future technologies, their proponents secretly hope for a rapid and powerful global warming — in order not to endanger their self-deception.
