Yes. Chop up some wood and turn off the oil. Any fuel use we can cut back on will reduce demand for his energy as a whole. Got to the stage of making sacrifices if we are to beat him at his game.Everyone.
I've knocked the heating back a lot, family haven't complained yet so I'll drop it again. Things that I was in the habit of leaving on stand-by are now switch fully off. I'll be walking more places where I can and was thinking today I'll get my bike out to see what it needs.
We are at war, an economic war. And humanity needs us to make the economic war work and the faster the better
Still plenty of coal that can be dug in the "western world", our last coal power station is running flat out every day now.When this ends (not sure how or when tbh), they/we will all be heading back to Russia to happily take the gas and oil.
Will all be forgotten far quicker than it all started
Tragically money always talks in the end.
The upshot of what this war will mean for the immediate future of just living, really hasn't sunken in for alot of people yet.
Germany has lots of coal still in useI can only hope, for German’s sake, and Italian, that the German nuclear plants can be restarted and quickly. The UK ports and dockers are turning away ships with Russian oil and refined fuel on board. This is likely to have some impact on diesel availability and price in the UK in the short term.
Yes but they can only burn ‘so much’. The reason for concern is clear. Russia supplies more than half of Germany’s gas, half of its coal and roughly a third of its oil.Germany has lots of coal still in use
To replace the Russian gas, if they stopped using it, would require all the LNG tankers in the world today to just supply Germany, full time. The volume or bulk required to be replaced is mind-boggling and I assume that to be true for the coal as well.So they arrnt 100% dependant on russian gas
