Innit interesting ….
So the EU is now “Redefining” Natural Gas and Nuclear Energy as “Green” sources of energy….Because they need those sources of electricity now that Wind and Solar have shown themselves to be unreliable.
The European Union has drawn up plans to label some natural gas and nuclear energy projects as “green” investments after a year-long battle between governments over which investments are truly climate-friendly. The European Commission is expected to propose rules in January deciding whether gas and nuclear projects will be included in the EU “sustainable finance taxonomy”.
What is happening is that much of the Nuclear generation capacity is being shut down, and nearly all the coal plants already have been, and many Natural gas fueled generation plants are either being phased out or are planned to be soon….and Europe is about to go dark because not everyone can import their shortfalls in generation by “borrowing” from their neighboring countries…..at least not all at the same time. Brownouts and blackouts are about to become very common there, and this will kill the industry and tourism….which will kill their economies.
The Greens got what they wanted, except that they are learning that their god of “sustainability” has feet of clay……And that the regular citizen doesn’t want to live in the dark like their world citizen.
So, of course, the Progressives (doing what progressives do…) are “redefining” what is “Green Energy”….
