Oh the irony! Especially taking into account all of the hoopla fed to people by the media for over a decade about renewable energy. It was all lies to enrich consultants and other politicos to soak off the system. Hopefully, this latest development is symbolic of the beginning of the end of so-called renewable energy.
Olaf Scholz’s coalition government, in which the Green party controls the energy and environment ministries, came to power in December with a promise to more than treble renewable electricity generation by 2030 and push the country towards net zero.
Yet these aims have collided with geopolitical reality: in an effort to burn as little Russian gas as possible this winter, the state has reluctantly resorted to coal.
Not surprisingly, environmentalists were not happy about this. Don’t forget the time when Germany laughed at Trump’s warning about this very problem:
For now, Germans should enjoy all of the benefits of coal since their leaders will eventually try to shift away from it. But they will never admit Trump was right.
