Europe Prepares for Energy Crisis: Macron Switches off Streetlights, Germans to Heat Homes With Wood

Germany is further planning to turn public venues into “warm up spaces” for people to come in the winter.

Europe is preparing for an energy crisis this winter, with French President Emmanuel Macron ordering public lighting to be used less, and German banks warning that people will have to heat their homes with wood.

With gas prices rising, and a continent mostly depending on supplies of Russian gas, European leaders and institutions are preparing alternatiev methods of heating and energy saving policies in order to get through.

Speaking on France’s national day, Bastille Day, President Emmanuel Macron warned of Europe’s energy dependence on Russian gas, noting that the country was cutting off supplies as part of a “hybrid war.”

“In my opinion, our sanctions primarily affect the Russian economy,” Macron said. “In this situation, energy prices started to rise even before the war, and the rise continued because of the war,” he added. As such, they had to be prepared for the war to last, saying that the “summer and the beginning of the autumn will probably be very tough.”

He argued that while France specifically doesn’t depend too much on Russian gas, the overall prices were affecting them, meaning they had to ensure their storage reserves were 100% filled by the autumn.

“From now on, I will ask public bodies, and all companies that can, to consume less,” Macron said, saying that they will create an energy program and “try to use lighting less in the evenings,” along with starting “a load reduction and sobriety program.”

Over in Germany, where major landlords are planning to throttle heating at night for its residents to save energy, analysts at the major Deutsche Bank suggested that people should look into substituting gas for other sources of power.

The bank argued that hard coal and lignite should be used in the power sector, with private citizens heating their homes chopping trees and heating their homes with wood “where possible.”

Germany is further planning “warm up spaces” to open in communities across the country this winter, such as events halls and other public venues. “Nobody can say exactly how dramatic the developments will be,” said Gerd Landsberg, the head of the Cities and Municipalities Association.

      President Trump warned Germany that they should not rely on Russia totally for oil. President Trump was laughed at. Germany is sure not laughing now. President Trump had America energy independent and the fool that slid into our WH dashed this day one in office. So, Mr. Mustash, you are wrong. Biden did this ALL BY HIMSELF.

          They give me $85 an hour to finish work on an Apple laptop. I certainly didn’t think it was possible, but ccx my trusted friend made $26,000 in just four weeks working on this simple opportunity (lsh-05) and she influenced me to give it a try.

    Well, is this what ya get with “combatting climate change”?
    I can hear it now.
    Germany goes back to home heating with wood stoves and the carbon footprint explodes!
    They just went through a 10-year program of shutting down their nuclear power plants. You know, the cleanest means of generation aside from hydro?
    Makes perfect sense to me!

    If I may, I would like to suggest the development of both skyscraper-roof-mounted and automated-airborne-drone-mounted “lightning capacitors”… the latter, afterupon being charged, could be automati̲c̲l̲y̲ redirected to the nearest stationary land-based skyscraper-roof-mounted lightning capacitors or to an ocean-based “ship-capacitor” or to an ocean-based “floating-platform-capacitor”… both of which– in turn– would act as either stationary skyscraper charging hubs for “mobile charging vehicles” or for ocean-based “floating charging vessels”. Skyscraper-roof-mounted “lightning capacitors” could, in turn, charge land-based “mobile charging vehicles”… serving cars and other land-based vehicles… and ocean-based “ship-capacitors” or “floating-platform-capacitors” (charged by these automated-airborne-drone-mounted lightning capacitors) could, in turn, charge other “floating charging vessels”, or electrify a ship’s or platform’s electric plane or docked boat or inflatable craft!

    People of Europe, your politicians and bureaucrats have really done a job on your energy supplies. To save the environment, they are now working on your food supplies. Let me know how being cold goes along with hunger.

    I will never forget the video I saw years ago when Donald Trump visited Germany as US President. He strongly advised the Germans “not to depend upon Russia for their energy.”

    A bunch of Germans were at the back of the hall laughing at “that stupid American clown.”

    They are not laughing now are they?

    I’ve made $64,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. Im using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Heres what I do.
    🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:)
