Former German supporters now in open revolt against Green Energy.
The mood has turned 180° since the early days. Once welcome, Germany’s Energiewende is now being met with shock and outrage as the environmental destruction takes on unforeseen dimensions.
A recent period of extremely low solar and wind power generation shows that Germany will never be able to rely on renewable energy, regardless of how much new capacity will be built..
This winter could go down in history as the event that proved the German energy transition to be unsubstantiated and incapable of becoming a success story.
Electricity from wind and solar generation has been catastrophically low for several weeks. December brought new declines. A persistent winter high-pressure system with dense fog throughout Central Europe has been sufficient to unmask the fairy tale of a successful energy transition, even for me as a lay person.
You do not need to be a technician, an energy expert, or a scientist to perceive the underlying futility of this basic situation. You simply need common sense
