(LifeSiteNews) – The president of the European Commission said citizens should “flatten the curve” of energy demand in light of Europe’s lack of electricity due to implementing extreme green policies as well as being cut off from Russian gas.

In a speech today, Ursula von der Leyen called for “mandatory” energy rationing throughout the entire EU bloc, using terms from the early days of the COVID crisis to get people to accept what in effect are climate lockdowns.

“During peak demand, the expensive gas comes into the market. So what we have to do is flatten the curve to avoid the peak demands, we will propose a mandatory target for reducing electricity use at peak hours and we will work very closely with the member states to achieve this,” von der Leyen said.

“These are tough times and they’re not over soon,” she added, noting that she is convinced “Europeans have the economic strength, the political will, and unity to keep the upper hand.”

Many EU states have for some time now implemented extreme green energy policies championed by the World Economic Forum (WEF), which many say have caused nothing but higher energy costs as well as power shortages.

A part of this “reset” is pushing a radical climate change agenda that promotes unreliable “renewables,” the likes of wind farms and solar energy, which simply cannot keep up with energy demand.

These green policies have resulted in insanely high electric and gas bills for many consumers.

The G20 meeting this October will see the most powerful nations in the world - the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, China, Russia and Brazil among others - discuss climate policies that are already affecting billions of people around the world. 

This powerful cadre of international leaders wants the world to run on solar and wind power, forcing an end to the use of gas, oil and nuclear power, as well as crushing beef farmers because of supposed methane emissions.

But the harsh impact of such policies is already being felt, with energy blackouts and soaring inflation hammering people around the world, making it beyond time for all of us to speak out. 

SIGN: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.

As western leaders turn off the oil spigots and impose draconian restrictions on farmers, we've all experienced the pain of increased prices, not least at the pump and the grocery store.

This inflation was entirely avoidable if only our politicians prioritized food and energy security over climate theories, but instead they have succumbed to radical environmentalists whose agenda would cripple the livelihoods and living standards of much of the globe.

Communities all around you are feeling the weight of crushing price hikes, which will soon reach your own food isles and gas pumps if it hasn't already.

The effects of inflation are being felt in the developing world most, as fuel and food prices sky rocket, making even worse poverty an inevitabilty for hundreds of millions of people.

Reality will hit home for us soon.

The harshest effects of energy shortages will be felt this winter in the west, when our leaders' decisions to cut oil supplies and reject Russian natural gas will:

  • force heating, fuel and electricity prices to sky rocket
  • continue to make food more expensive
  • risk a global depression as inflation spirals out of control
  • prompt more blackouts
  • make civil unrest a real possibility

The media are already preparing people for rolling blackouts. States like California and countries like England are warning citizens that they face severe electricity and gas shortages. 

Now is the time to speak out and be part of a movement that can prevent this disaster spreading. 

SIGN the petition calling on international leaders to abandon their reckless energy agenda and return the world to economic stability.

The entire climate change industry is based on models that have been consistently inaccurate for decades, with Al Gore among the most infamous prophets of doom to be proven wrong.

In 2009 Gore told the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen that the North Pole would be ice-free by 2014, a claim that remains wildly off the mark.

Al Gore is not alone in getting things wrong however, as this brief timeline of scaremongering headlines proves:

 

The world needs to wake-up to what's really happening: our lives are being upended on the basis of climate theories and models that have been consistently wrong for decades.

It's time to stop the scaremongering and push back against the radical agenda of international elites. 

SIGN & SHARE: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.

Thank you.

As noted by LifeSiteNews’ Paris correspondent Jeanne Smits in a recent blog, Europe’s “energy situation is Kafkaesque” and self-inflicted.

“Turning eastward, Russia has found eager clients for its gas and petrol in China, Iran, and elsewhere while Europe suffers from the economic sanctions it imposed after Putin invaded Ukraine,” Smits noted.

“Under ‘green’ pressure – and the environmentalists have always leaned to the extreme-left in the same way that pacifists and anti-nuclear activists in the West furthered the interests of the USSR during the Cold War – countries such as Germany have been pushed to depend on unreliable ‘renewables’ such as wind farms and solar energy. As a result, coal plants are reopening. And France, which kept its nuclear plants active, is now obliged to share its energy with its EU partners.”

The Great Reset is a militant plan created by global elites who are part of the WEF  that “seeks to ‘push the reset button’ on the global economy” and to also create a New World Order with aspects of the Chinese Social Credit System.

The EU’s von der Leyen also called for capping the price of gas from Russia, as well as mandating that oil and gas companies redistribute profits in a “solidarity contribution.”

After Russia invaded Ukraine, the EU imposed heavy sanctions on the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In return, Putin began to restrict the flow of gas to Europe, which has been heavily reliant on relatively cheap Russian gas.

Putin recently shut the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, as a result of Western sanctions.

Putin has also said that if the EU goes ahead with any price caps, all energy shipments to the EU will stop.

“We will not supply gas, oil, coal, heating oil – we will not supply anything,dwith any form of energy,” said Putin.

Many EU states such as Germany, France, and Italy have already introduced rationing proposals of their own.

Protests have broken out in Germany in recent days calling for the end to sanctions against Russia. However, German Foreign Affairs Minister Annalena Baerbock said the country would continue to support Ukraine “no matter what [the] German voter thinks.”

LifeSiteNews reported in July that the newly built Nord Stream 2 pipeline was stopped from opening, and its certification was suspended by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, due to the start of the Russia-Ukraine war.
