We have been told that the future is green energy or wind and solar. Germany had taken pride in its leadership in this dream. Germany's economy and climate ministry presented a package of measures in April of 2022 to speed up the expansion of renewable energy, as the need to reduce the country's heavy reliance on Russian fossil fuels added urgency to its green transition plans they claimed. The package envisaged green energy accounting for 80% of the power mix in Europe's biggest economy by 2030, up from about 40% now and a previous target of 65%.
This was the plan, this was the dream, this is what was sold to the people of Germany and what is being sold to people around the world except in places like China and Russia. That is because the leaders of China and Russia are realists. They also understand the control it gives them over the rest of the world as nations like Germany, well actually the European Union, Canada, Britain, and the United States buy into this fallacy.
Now for the rest of the story or the reality, that is that green energy cannot power the economies of an industrial world.
Wind Farm in Germany Is Being Taken Down for Expansion of Coal Mine
In the throes of an energy crisis, a German energy company is moving forward with plans to dismantle a wind farm adjacent to its coal mine in order to expand operations. The removal of one of the wind farm’s eight wind turbines occurred last week, with two more coming down in months and the rest getting removed by the end of 2023.
The realities that abandoning fossil fuels lead to lack of power, which Germans will learn about more this winter, which people in New England are realizing as heating oil is now being rationed, which all of America will realize as diesel fuel becomes less available and increasingly expensive, will result in more and more actions like is now being done in Germany.
Goodbye pipe dream of abandoning fossil fuels, and welcome abundant energy, warm homes, and lower prices for everything.
