The poor are the real victims of Europe’s green energy drive: tens of thousands of deaths every year, millions losing their power.
The latest story on “green energy” here at the German online FOCUS magazine website actually shocked me.
Europe’s energy policy is, under the bottom line, costing the lives of tens of thousands of citizens – all at the holy altar of “climate protection”.
The title of the FOCUS article: “The grand electricity lie”: Why electricity is becoming a luxury”
One of the sickest things about Europe and its disconnected leaders is that often a full-scale disaster first needs to happen before policy gets corrected. Often the scale of the death and devastation becomes known only after the clean-up crews have come in and sifted through the rubble.
FOCUS now cites a documentary film which is set to be broadcast this evening on European television station ARTE.
The documentary presents how Europe’s electricity prices are spiraling out of control, and horrible consequences this is having on the continent’s citizens.
The situation, we are discovering, is far more disturbing than even the earlier worst case scenarios every imagined.
In 2014 in Europe there were about 40,000 winter deaths because millions of people were unable to pay for their electric bills – the so-called energy poverty currently impacts about ten percent of all Europeans. In the past 8 years the price of electricity in Europe has climbed by an average of 42 percent.
7 million German households in energy poverty
FOCUS writes that the poor are the real victims of “socialist” Europe’s clean energy drive.
In Bulgaria people see half of their income gobbled up by energy costs alone. In Spain 28 percent of the citizens live in “energy poverty”.
In Germany, FOCUS writes, 7 million households are considered to be living in “energy poverty”.
The consequences of energy poverty are profound: tens of thousands of deaths every year, millions losing their power.
