The following video is a German public service announcement for the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It addresses current anxiety about the availability of electrical power in Northern Europe as winter sets in. The failure of wind and solar sources to provide sufficient electricity, coupled with uncertainty about the availability of natural gas from Belarus and Russia, have led to fears of electrical blackouts in Germany.
This clip advises German citizens not to worry — candles, oil heaters, and the help of African migrants will enable elderly German citizens to make it through this difficult season.
