Hello Everyone Worldwide & Welcome !
Today's post will be relatively brief. The next "battle" - already well underway as witnessed in Ukraine along with Western Europe's response, is control of energy source(s). Russia's current strategy making western Europe codependent upon Russian natural gas also makes European economies codependent. When you gain energy & economic control of any country, you own that country!
They who control energy source, control the world! President Putin long since figured this out. Observe drilling in the Arctic by Russia & strategic importance of Russian natural gas supplied through Ukraine's gas lines to western Europe. It will be interesting to see what happens when Ukraine refuses Russia's use of Ukraine's gas lines to western Europe.....
Western Europe's move to solar & wind is doomed to absolute failure but not before completely depleting / exhausting any individual country's economy. Already in Germany with announcement of eventual move to solar & wind, consumer utility / energy bills soar in an attempt to pay for the future. The monetary cost of switching to solar & wind is prohibitive & in time - decades. It will not work, not any more than it did in Spain -whose citizens now pay the full price = a dead economy, no jobs, high unemployment and adult "children" in their late 20's & 30's forced to live at home with parents.
Spain's move to LNG ( liquid natural gas ) & Spain currently is Europe's largest exporter of LNG, requires infrastructure i.e. gas lines or they must continue shipping via ocean port to port. This does nothing to resolve Spain's domestic energy needs nor economic situation.
At the risk of sounding redundant, Portable Power Plant Electric Vehicles (PPP EVs) are the sole immediate answer! PPP EVs require no capitalization as they are mass manufactured by auto manufacturers using existing working capital - in fact "re tasking" existing capital at significant savings, while increasing sold PPP EV profits especially residual grid supply royalties to unheard of "residual prosperity." PPP EVs use existing infrastructure and have no carbon footprint.
Dispersed Autonomous Energy not annexation is the answer!
