NoTricks has details of a documentary film to be aired tonight on European television station ARTE. The documentary presents how Europe’s electricity prices are spiralling out of control, and the 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. FOCUS reports (emphasis added):

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.”

    We are saving the planet Paul – and a few fluffy animals on it. Humans are regarded as a plague – ask that nice Mr Attenborough. Greens, like him, think a few billion should die, not a few thousand.

    If UK politicians persue green policies that result in a mass die off of pensioners, then they can replace them with younger immigrants, the net effect being a boost to the exchequer with the long term aim to erase the national debt using this very method. Hence the removal of 35,000 training places for nurses by the coalition thus forcing the NHS to import nurses.

    This last winter was fortunately mild due to the impact of El Nino. Next winter the impact will be much larger due to three impacts. Most important are the economic factors – unemployment will still be sky-high in much of Europe with very little economic growth. The costs of energy will still rise. Finally the temperatures are likely to be much lower than in 2015 and possibly lower than average.
