Shocking results of EU’s green energy policies: 128M Europeans face energy poverty

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Governments across the globe infected with climate alarmism have been telling us that switching from fossil fuels to green energy is the way to go but now we’re starting to see the shocking results of their reckless green energy policies

Stats from the European Union show that 128M Europeans are at risk of energy poverty. 

That number represents a quarter of the population and is just the EU average. In Romania, it’s estimated that 40 to 50 percent live in energy poverty and in countries like Ireland and the UK, those rates range between 20 to 30 percent.

This comes as no surprise and should serve as a grave warning for Canadians.

The UK was the first country to adopt aggressive emissions reducing strategies like phasing out cheap accessible coal by 2025 in exchange for more expensive options in order to meet the unrealistic aims of 1992’s Kyoto Protocol.

Not only is energy already expensive, but 20% of electricity is still powered by coal any way and those costs are going to keep rising.

Energy poverty is also a problem in Ontario where their Liberal government brought in green energy policies that have hurt families who find themselves forced to choose between paying to heat their homes or buying groceries.

And of course, Rachel Notley and the NDP are doing exactly the same thing by phasing out coal in Alberta.

Examples from Europe and Ontario should be enough for all governments to take a step back from these policies that are plunging citizens into poverty and slowly taking us back to the Dark Ages.

These politicians say they care about the environment, but what they really care about is following the narrative that they think will bring them votes.

Clearly, they care more about those votes than they do about human suffering.

I have no pity.

I have two 20Kw generators on this place all wired in to the house and shop – with enough fuel to run them for 30 days straight.

I have a 10Kw solar system that charges batteries in the house and barn.

You could shut down electricity here and I would survive quite nicely on my own – as a recent week long test just proved.

I do not care about the eurotrash and at the moment most Canadians piss me off as well.

The voters brought this on themselves.

If you are not prepared then you have no one to blame but yourself.

And if you did not vote for the arses that did this, then your friends and family did. You need to change the people you hang out with.

Depopulation Plan? How many will freeze or starve because they can’t afford to pay?

Hey, the BoC sees energy poverty as a reason to hike interest rates.

Europe is definitely going downhill.

Maurice Strong would be thrilled. His hopes and dreams to “collapse western economies” is coming to fruition.

That’s exactly the goal of climate change policies: massive transfer of the wealth of the West to developing countries. Of course, poverty will be common and wide-spread.

After policies like these start hurting bad. , the leftards get booted , the Conservatives take over to straighten things out , but this Eco shit will take years to undo , mean while energy poverty has pensioners and welfare recipients screaming at the Conservatives , and so taxes go up , services get cut , and so on it goes till we get invaded by the enemy

“Energy Poverty” will be the “hot” topic this winter in energy deprived Canada – particularly inland BC, Alberta, and Ontarrible. To be spending a large part of your income to stay warm and keep the lights on in the midst of abundant energy resources will be the straw that breaks the Truedough selkie regime’s back – one term wonder.

How progressive indeed. All this crap about climate change green energy is a lot of lies that they use to bring about agenda 21 and NWO.

The Liberals and the NDP have access to this information as well.

Conclusion: They know their “green” energy plan will cause energy poverty for the people and they are intentionally forcing people into energy poverty.

Question: "To what end are they doing this?*
