      I have always suspected corporations to be a western cancer that are spreading all around the world. Everywhere they go, through unfettered wealth and growth, much like a cancer they eventually takes over everything. Corporations do not serve humanity, they destroy the fabric of humanity. It is a construct that must be destroyed or we will be.

      @Ksins1 I hate to admit it, but you are absolutely right. US needed to destabilise EU, it got worried as Germany had cozied up to RF with NS2. It will not allow EU to have any relationship with RF for fear of losing "fear" market in EU and so it mobilised more like sacrificed its pawn the Ukraine, to kick start a proxy war...and credit is due it worked wonderfully for US politicians making a killing on wall street with shares and stocks prices hitting the roof literally.
      Meanwhile poor EU are without energy, but sadly many ordinary Ukrainians have either lost their lives, loved ones, country, sovereignty in service of US supremacy.
      Meanwhile US has created a new enemy or two as it is now working on destabilising Asia by creating another enemy that is China.

    I love it how they say that nuclear energy is "taboo" in Germany. I hope it's no longer taboo. But if it still is taboo, then maybe they should consider the alternative as taboo - freezing to death.
    This is called 1st world thinking. Who cares about carbon neutrality if people are dying and we can't even keep the lights on. 1st, take care of energy independence. THEN, maintain the independence and transition to green energy.

    Instead of fighting green energy in the backrooms, in order to keep pushing
    for fossil fuel usage, Europe needs to go solar.
    I said back then that the tax from Europe on cheap solar panels
    waw wrong, since it disallowed cheap solar for the people.
    Now there's no more gas, it ran out, which was known to politicians at the time.
    But..they went with the tax anyway.
    Had that not happened and one or two companies would have collapsed
    due to the inability to compete on the industry front, we'd have a fallout of
    a few thousand unemployed in Europe.
    Now instead we have an energy crisis, not bad for a few thousand,
    but affecting millions.
    Instead of governments enjoying the option to get more energy independancy,
    they, combined, chose to represent European citizens in the worst possible
    way, by imposing said tax on cheap solar.
    It's like people are trying hard to tear down the world.

      @Bored Utopia I agree with you, BUT, the west will find a way to make you pay even more while they pay less. In the end, you’ll have to pay for the lion share of their mess up anyways while being blamed even more. Always have been the case. And then their tourists will come to your country, sleep with your poor women who sell their bodies, drink your “cheap”er alcohol, and then tsk tsk at how pitiful you are, and how you guys can’t seem to get your act together with your horrible governments which they don’t understand why you don’t revolt against, and go home, to extort more money and wealth from your unequal labor, and take advantage of your low priced produce and natural resources tsk tsk how your ruining the environment by pumping the fossil fuels and being carbon polluters while they buy up all the stuff your low cost labor manufactures and complain their woes are because you are extorting them with higher prices and you shouldn’t do that cause they’re suffering and if you keep at it, they might be forced to war with you. 🤷‍♂️. Look how many people around the world complain about China - oh, they make their stuff too cheap, oh, they’re building stuff too much, I hate this puffer jacket that’s keeping me warm cause it was made in China. 🤷‍♂️. And now, China lowered prices and helping reduce inflation globally - and who suffers? Chinese workers. And who gets the blame - China. Lol. When West suffers, you will suffer even more. Just keep in mind. And I live in the West, and I take advantage too. Can’t change anything - just the way it is. Rich don’t suffer during economic troubles - the poor do. Same with nations globally. Whole swaths of African and Southeastern Asians will end up paying double while Europeans end up paying extra 10% more and complain and threaten wars and revolutions because of it. 🤷‍♂️. 😂. Just my prediction. Already African populations dying from climate change and droughts in historic numbers cause West need to burn their fossil fuels. And while they create multiple or exponentially more carbon, they tsk tsk at the African burning some logs to cook their food, how barbaric! 😂. Then they point fingers at all the companies polluting while not pointing out that likely most of the investors in those companies in the third world nations probably are westerners. 😂

    You miss to mention the reason why gas supply from Russia was reduced in 2021 - EU's "green" decision to stop long-term contracts (important for investments) and move to spot market. This was crucial decision that escalated gas issues - but not only for Russian gas - also for LNG as gas distributors around the world can't plan their investments based on spot markets.

So countries from the south cant benefit, not blackmailing but direct abuse of power. So there were sanctions of Russian gas ... but all countries still buy from Russia gas using companies(if companie buy the gas its not anymore Russian) and buy it from them on bigger price. I wonder who own those companies and collect that easy money?

    Renewable energy systems do depend largely on the availability of solar insolation, and favourable wind speeds to support energy demand, which grows with population growth rates in Europe. They will revert to hydrocarbon energy which is still abundant and can be exploited in an environmentally suitable way, e.g. coal gasification power generation systems. Why not? The Europeans wanted to punish developing countries through their proposals to dismiss the use of fossil fuels, as poor nations cannot afford expensive renewable resources. Therefore Europe has created its own nightmare and they should not moan about it.

      Yes, the already developed world (not only the EU) wants developing countries to directly move to renewable energy instead of pulluting as much as they did on the way.
      But no, renewable energy installations are today already cheaper than any other alternative. Additionally many developing countries have big solar energy potentials making PV installations even more productive and therefore cheaper.
      And please stop with this nonesense issue of not available sun/wind. There are already a large number of different and effective storage technologies available, they just need to be build.

    Mostly in the UK people have been really complacent over the last 100 years. Most countries insulate their homes. The Uk didn’t do any of that because of cheap gas and coal before that. Landowners are pocketing profits and normal people are now stranded with either the cold or ridiculous gas bills, because of the way British housing is being built. Europe on the other hand single-handedly decapitated it’s energy supply by closing down countless nuclear reactors - the cleanest form of energy available- whilst simultaneously failing to provide alternatives apart from Russian gas. It’s time for everyone to see that this is all about corporate interest and the leaders are doing nothing for the people.

    Having spent a lot of time in Spain and travelled a lot in Spain really large areas of solar panels are very evident as are very large wind turbines for electricity. Despite Spain having really bright sunny days for the majority of the year and the wind turbines being strategically placed in mountain passes they still need to have about % 60 of their electricity production from other sources. So the Northern European countries which have much less sunshine have much less possibility to produce green energy.

      Nordic countries receive plenty of sunshine during the non-winter months. Helsinki, for example, might only get an average of about 1 hr/day of sunshine during December, though the day lengths ranges 5h49m to 6h25, and during June, 10 hr/day of sunshine average, though day lengths range from 18h21 to 18h55.
      Finland can definitely benefit from solar, though it’s the lack of storage of energy for colder months that unfortunately is problematic, though sand batteries are looking to potentially become a thing which could store heat for a few months.
      Finland would just need to clear a number of forests unfortunately, which it recognises forests as major carbon sinks.
      With the current situation, Finland has been trying to get one of their nuclear reactors Olkiluoto 3 working which could produce 1600MW, capable of powering 14% of homes, but has had issues thus delaying its contribution to the energy grid.

      @Chau Nguyen "mass sacale" and "mass society" are products of fossil fuels. Mass society is not and will never be "green" or sustainable. The only way to achieve sustainability is by downsizing, degrowing. Cities have never been sustainable in any point in history and never will. But business as usual is not interested in real sustainability, that's why the status quo avoid by any means to acknowledge the problem and focus on fake solutions like "renewable energy", "sustainable" agriculture (an oxymoron), "sustainable" cities (another oxymoron), nuclear energy, bioengineering, etc. While those things will certainly fail to make their utopias come true, nature is preparing a very different future for us, and there are no mass society, mass production or urban life in it.

    Its amazing how EU countries can announce subsidies programs of 200 billion euros and similar to fill bottomless pits (cover energy costs of businesses and consumers), but how they won't consider things like relocating all the people (or those experiencing issues) living above the Groningen Gas field, so extraction can continue at full pace there. With the kind of budgets being thrown around now this should be very, very possible. But I guess we would rather make every external gas provider rich rather than finding ways to exploit the gas we do have. If I understand correctly, the amount of houses is affected that is low enough that with 200 billion euro you could relocate everyone into houses costing more than a million euro each if you wanted to ...

      ​@Kolerick Bloodmoon I agree with you on that, we need to transition away from gas reliance. I am just saying that if our governments are gonna give the people a huge band-aid (and they already are), they should at least opt for the local and probably more affordable (and ecologically responsible) band-aid. It might leave us in a stronger position in a few years. I would be all for leaving the band-aid off, and using the money to build future-proof energy infrastructure. I'm writing from my unheated office. But I don't believe our governments have the backbone to force people/voters to use significantly less gas.

      @Evryatis I don't know what's going on in France, but the difficulties can not be related to the Ukrainian war. As I said, the gas prices have droppred below the level they were before the war (and thus can't influence the electricity prices, because gas for the gas-centrals souldn't be more expensive as before the war). And France has a reliance on atomic energy. Since France didn't close its nyclear reactors, there should be no reason for this sudden spike in prices.
      This war is far from meaningless. It is the most important geopolitical event since the end of the cold war. I think we should give the Ukrainians finally the weapons they need to kick the Russians out of their country. Let's hope the Ukrainians win this conflict or every two-bit dictator will want to invade his neighbouring countries and we're getting dragged from one war into another war. Then, Taiwan becomes the next victim for sure. I thought we had all learned that from WWII, but apperently not all of us did. It is much cheaper to give the Ukrainians what they need then to fight ourselves in Ukraine and Taiwan, against the Russians and the Chinese.

    At double the price, the German heavy users of gas like the Chemical industry (eg BASF) and steel (eg ThyssenKrupp) cannot stay in business.
    The German economy was based upon these manufacturing sectors. Germany will now have to pivot its entire economy away from manufacturing into other sectors, and it doesn’t have a lot of experience in those areas.

    The fact is that wind and solar cant sustain a firat world energy grid by it self, it can only supplement it , but at huge cost to the overall efficency of the grid. The only non co2 emitting large scale electricity producing technology that can stably, reliably and cheaply supply not dependent the grid is nuclear energy and hydro, but hydro being very limited to a few very specific locations. Germany and other countries fear of nuclear are the reason that they are still dependet on russia for energy. It didnt take a genius to see that this was going to become a big problem soner or later, but still they whent and closed the majority of their nuclear plants.

    I don’t understand this strange fixation and notion that we can ever completely go away from fossile fuels. I am not aware of any alternative energy solutions or equipment that lasts forever nor doesn’t require enormous amounts of fossile fuel to produce and maintain. Maybe people need to face reality that alternate energy sources are just that: alternate, and not exclusive and it’s foolish to design any foundational system for a civilization on any single source, be it solar or wind or water or nuke or oil.

    I'm watching Thermodynamics 101 lectures on youtube. I can now understand what LNG is. It's similar to what's inside a bic lighter or a propane tank. The gas condenses into a liquid under pressure (all gases do that at different temperatures , including steam) The problem with LNG is it's hard to store and transport it.

      More than that, yu need to BOIL all that LNG back into natural gas "steam." And just as it takes a lot of energy to boil water into steam, it takes comparble amounts of heat to boil LNG back into natural gas.
      I used to operate a propane peaking plant for a gas utility. Huge in ground tanks of propane that were accumulated by hundreds of truckloads of propane to fill the tanks.
      Then during the winter, if a natural gas shortage developed, all that propane could be boiled into a gas and added to natural gas pipeline supplies. and they were connected to the distribution network and added to gas supplies in three days, if needed! Large hot water boilers were used to provide the heat to boil the propane. I imagine something quite similar is done to gassify LNG.
      Most of the gas in the Seattle area comes from Canada, and that supply has been very reliable. So there wasn't much actual need to operate that peaking plant.
      The utility had an even larger reserve of natural gas in a natural underground storage area south of Seattle. Gas could be stored there during summer months when demand was small, and fed into the pipeline during the winter period of high demand.

    This is a different narrative from the mainstream media. In this version, Europe isn't refusing Russian gas. Rather, Russia is refusing to sell gas to Europe. In that case, it would make sense that Russia cut off supply by blowing up the pipeline. I didn't say it's true. It is, however, a different frame on the issue.

    Interesting video, but I’m quite interested about some claims: “lng from USA has been the hero”, and “people are looking for when USA will be able to send even more..”... seriously? So “people” are hoping to trade a eastern dependency with a western dependency And paying higher fees for the fact that now that gas is needed? wondering who’s is exactly included in those “people”....honestly i would expect a little more insights, critical thinking and deeper investigations from Bloomberg.

    The so-called solutions mentioned in this documentary i.e. renewable energy sources are still too under developed to provide the answer to the energy crisis. What happens when the sun does not shine and when there is no wind? An when the the sun and wind are present, how is the surplus energy stored? Batteries alone cannot do the job as there is a limited supply of the raw materials needed for them and both manufacturing and recycling need a lot of energy. At present, the only option for consistent, high-energy output with no operational emissions is nuclear power. Working with renewable energy sources, the addition of small modular nuclear reactors will deal with the baseload power generation requirements until we invent and transition to better long-term solutions.

      Denmark successfully gets 45% of its energy from wind now and its growing rapidly.
      Anyone with many rivers and fjords can use hydropower. Norway gets 90% of its power from hydro despite being a large oil/gas exporter.
      There are also many solar power success stories.
      People saying we can't, keep ignoring that many places are doing these things successfully.

Yes, this is the "learning the hard way". They should pay for their own sanctions and support national economy and people.
