EU goes all-electric. Let the power outages begin!

So they have less than seven years to significantly augment their electric grid or face rolling blackouts. (Not hard to see what's going to happen here.) Not to mention that farming in the EU is effectively hosed as well, as electric vehicles for farming are a complete joke.

EU has literally signed a death warrant for a large portion of their people. If they survive another seven years to begin enforcing this, it will end the EU.

    Yep, let the markets decide, but that’s not what’s happening. Governments are putting both thumbs on the scale, greatly interfering with free markets. The EU wants 0 CO2 emissions….. hope the folks can hold their breaths long enough to escape the tyrannical rule of the Brussels mofia.

    They signed that agreement with the knowledge that it will decimate the population faster than passing viral packages back and forth. This insane group of overlords will use any and every possible means to decrease the "surplus" as quickly as possible, and flattening Europe will eventually make us an easier target. With Canada to our north and Mexico to the south adding their Socialist pressures to the mix, this worldwide squeeze play will topple the will of any who don't understand what depths of depravity we fight against. Keep your powder dry and stay gray.

      I think that they ought to put their money where their mouths are and be the first ones to volunteer to move to the Moon. They can rule and lord over themselves all they want while the rest of us live our lives.

        "I think that they ought to put their money where their mouths are and be the first ones to volunteer to..." go kill themselves instead of everyone else. Why waste the resources to send them to the moon?

        Edit add: They can build a statue of the all knowing all seeing frowning faced Gretta goddess and sacrifice themselves to it.

        Our lives had progressed through free trade to the point now we depend on the availability of so many things from other people. We each can become relatively self sufficient for lets say- a couple of weeks. But its quite another thing to preserve our life style without the systems in place like the ones Biden and the left want to "reset".
        We will have to retreat to a former standard of living if Biden does his "reset". Maybe back to the late 1800's. The left has no idea how to reset things, once they are demolished.

          Agreed, term2. As a Civil War re-enactor for over 20 years and have lived close to that kind of life for up to a week at a time, I have an "idea" what 19th century living was all about. One can be VERY sure Americans are not ready for that kind of life. I would expect the attrition rate to be enormous.

            My house is setup to live like it’s 1899. We have modern amenities. But in the background....all those quaint “antiques” are fully functional. Life will be difficult for sure. But it will be a whole lot more difficult for others.

              My home is the same. Some time back an ice storm knocked out our power for 14 days and we had oil lamps and cooked in the fireplace (real wood) and got along well (my wife and I are both accomplished campfire cooks so we ate well). It got down to 8degF on several days, but we have 3 fireplaces to keep us warm - I'd come home from work at lunch time to rekindle the fire. At that time we had an old style gas hot water tank with a gas pilot so we still had hot water to to take a shower - the newer tanks have electric pilots so you need electricity to fire them up. I definitely bought a generator after that one was over, lol. We are still good to go if it happens again.

              Edit add for those interested: For a hot water shower w/o gas or electricity you can use my camping shower solution. Get a stainless steel water type fire extinguisher you can refill and pressurize yourself. Change out the hose for a kitchen sink spray hose and use a bicycle pump to pressurize it. Heat the water on the fire to the temp you like, pour it into the extinguisher 4 or 5 inches from the top (you need an air space), pump it up to about 60psi and you're good to go. Hot shower w/o gas or electric even in the winter. In hot weather just fill it up and leave in the sun for a while.

                The frustrating part is....it didn’t have to be the way it’s going. But....hey.....Darwin’s Law....the group that displays the best adaptation skills to their environment generally prevails. I’m trying to teach the kids. One’s all in. The other 4.....meh.
                One’s bat shit crazy.
                People decry accelerationists. As if WE are somehow pushing society towards collapse.
                That’s not true. We’ve just stopped pushing back.
                Let it burn and let’s find out who’s still standing afterwards.

            The preppers arent prepared for that kind of retraction in living standard either. Considering how entitlement is rampant today, I would suspect major violence is going to occur.

              No can be 100% prepared for something they've never been through, but "preppers" are going to be way more prepared than your common folk. The preppers are also not going to be the ones initiating violence for that reason. It will be the desperate people who riot - along with the ones who like violence and the chance to loot. If the preppers get involved, it will be to fend off the looters - private or otherwise.

                I think a big part of preparedness is mental- the willingness to accept the changes in the world, and make the best of them for ones life. Believe me, I would be very depressed for awhile at the lack of grocery stores, home depot, costco, probably amazon and walmart, reliable electricity, gasoline supplies, and being able to go out to eat. We are so dependent on other people that its just going to be very hard to live without all that.

                In the end, whats really important is water, food, and shelter. After that we can still slowly get back to a lifestyle where there is availability of the nice lifestyle that we enjoyed in post ww2 in the USA

    I remember the days when, going far back, suburban households in big cities had milk and bread delivered by electric carts steered by the deliveryman on foot. It was a good technology for that time. Not so many homes had a private motor vehicle so deliveries beat trudging to the shops with a hand trolley.

    Things are different today, but suppose suburban homes found that private cars were, effectively, banned by high taxes and levies, then what? There would be a return of electric carts. The technology is much the same now as then, well maybe control systems could make them automatic and eliminate the deliveryman.
    The EU will find that 90% of private liquid fueled passenger cars can be eliminated. But diesel trucks - No. The result will be supply-chain chaos. On top of that, the electricity system when based on wind, will collapse. Industrial, commercial, social and then political collapse.

    A lot of scope for sci-fi writers, eg the war in Ukraine will end with WW2 caliber Russian tanks destroying the latest electric US Abrams which will have nowhere to plug in.

    What is the difference between the EU and Hitlers goal in Europe? Does the WEF or as They should be called the ReichsWEF dictate their agenda to the EU Parliamentary puppets?
    Why were the Corporate leaders who funded , participated and ran the concentration camps and used the detained as slave labor , now among the wealthiest in the world?

    Abs , He oversaw the “Aryanization” of Jewish owned assets during Nazi Germany, and held directorships in the most important German corporations of the day, including IG Farben.
    Hermann Abs was released from facing a war crimes tribunal due to “British intervention”. Also consider that the British intervention was based on a recommendation from Robi Mendelssohn, a man who had his multi-generational banking dynasty ended by Hermann Abs.

    None of this story seems remotely conceivable, unless we continue to follow the money.

    Hermann and the Marshall Plan

    Once the British, under the alleged recommendation of Robi Mendelssohn, freed Hermann Abs from Nuremberg prosecution, he was immediately put to work. He became an advisor to the first post-war German Chancellor, Konrad Adenauer. With Germany and most of Europe in a state of complete destruction, US Secretary of State, George C. Marshall presented the concept of rebuilding Europe in order to prevent the free-market capitalist system from breaking down. This became known as the Marshall Plan.
    From 1948, the next four years saw $13 billion of economic aid provided to select European nations. The man appointed to oversee the allocation of these funds was Hermann Abs.

    With Hermann Abs coordinating the economic rebuild of Germany, Deutsche Bank was reopened in 1957. He joined the managing board of directors, before eventually becoming the bank’s chairman. He also served on the board of several other major German corporations, and had a complete overview of the German economy. From such a prestigious position, there was serious money to be made.

    Lockheed, Lufthansa and Bernhard

    Recall in the ReichsWEF series we outlined the formation of the Bilderberg Group, which was co-founded in the Netherlands by Prince Bernhard. Recall the numerous scandals that plagued Prince Bernhard. During the 1930s, Bernhard was a member of the Nazi Party and he joined the Reiter SS Corps. He then went on to work for IG Farben. Prince Bernard from the House of Orange . Trump had this strange comm “ I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges”

      When it was revealed that Hermann Abs was receiving secret payments from Lockheed, it potentially exposed a much deeper layer of corruption at hand. If Abs did this with Lockheed, what other payments had he received? When you consider Abs’ corruption and the enormous amount of Marshall Plan funds that the American taxpayer had empowered him to allocate, an ominous picture emerges. If some of the Marshall Plan funds were diverted by Abs, it would be easy to ‘conceal’ them, especially with his good friend Frank ‘The Bank’ operating his merchant bank and trusts out of New Zealand.

      If corrupt money was housed and concealed in New Zealand, it would most certainly explain the relationship Hermann Abs had with Frank Renouf, and why Renouf was nicknamed ‘The Bank’. It would also explain why Frank Renouf amassed a fortune from a tiny island that is better known for its disproportionate number of sheep and expeditions to Antarctica, than as a banking and high-finance mecca.

      What the Church Committee release possibly shows us, is that Abs was not just rebuilding Germany, he was a key player in the Prussian transition into a network of globalist corporations and banking structures. An invisible enemy must have invisible networks within which to operate.

    It could be done if they triple their delivery infrastructure and build 50 nuclear power plants. I have no problem minimizing exhaust in dense population areas.

    I am in favor of this legislation. I am not a climate change believer. But I believe that the entire world should be focused on no longer flooding the Middle East with our money. I was at the Chicago auto show this week. The technology for the cars is getting there fast. Having a grid that supports it I have no idea. But for me, every hybrid or electric car that is purchased is a little less money going to the Middle East

      When Trump was pres none of our money went to the Middle East. We were an energy exporter - self sufficient. The left pulled this stunt as another tool for the green agenda. Make gas prices high to cause the sheeple to buy electric. And when this happens guess who has the grid control lever in case the sheeple rise up to the tyranny?

        I am not saying you are wrong about the politics of the deal. I just do not think it is important.
        Right now the Middle East is producing 27% of the world's oil and Russia is suppling 11%. That is all I need to know. I have RAV4 hybrid and it is an awesome car. 33 miles to the gallon for a full size SUV. I will never buy all gas again.

        I am. But be patient. With demand growing this fast I am confident that the markets will respond with newer and better technology for supply. The great minds of this country have not failed us yet when demand is there.

          "The great minds of this country have not failed us yet when demand is there."

          One doesn't legislate or run a business based on the hypothetical. (Or I guess you do: it's called a Ponzi scheme.) Unless there is a product on the market, there is no real alternative to evaluate.

            Why all the hate? There is a real market for EVs. Tesla and now the rest of the industry is answering the demand. Any competition breeds innovation. The fact that cars affect on climate change is a farce really has nothing to do with it. Let the market have it's way.

              Answering demand?
              Then why do they need government handouts to sell the vehicles? Duh, because there is not much demand.
              I think people who want them should be able to buy them IF they are profitable enough for the manufacturer - WITHOUT stealing from taxpayers to lower the price.

              Not hate. Reality. The EV industry wouldn't exist except at a fraction of what they do if it weren't for government subsidies (~$20K per vehicle) and government laws mandating fuel efficiency standards (California). They are terrible for the environment (mining processes for rare-earth elements, not to mention the coal emissions and let's not forget battery disposal which still hasn't been figured out.) And they aren't sustainable either due to the electric grid demands or the requirements for rare-earth elements.

              You mention competition, but on a level playing field EV's natural price point relegates them to the niche product market rather than the mainstream. Even modern ICE vehicles are >$20K more than they have to be due to government mandates for expensive engine monitors and all the fancy gadgets - not to mention the taxes on vehicle manufacturers. Take away both those and the EV subsidies and one immediately sees a $40K gap. Ouch! And then there are the range and size issues.

              I totally agree that we should allow the market to have its way. That means taking the government thumb off the scales. All of them.

              (PS. I didn't downvote you.)

      then you are delusional to allow politicians to run your life

      there will be tech to free us from burring oil, oil has many uses, burring it is not a good use

      Fusion
      Fission (other fuel sources are possible)
      solar in orbit
      geothermal (Yellowstone has lots)

      all are possible options

      for clueless politicians to say "do it now" shows they are clueless and out of touch

      EV charging stations on avg get 85% of their energy from diesel & other fossil fuels. Lugging around 1000 - 2000+ lbs of batteries (plus heavier suspension, tires & bodies to support them) is not the ultimate tech. The break even point for an EV's carbon footprint is 60K+ miles, not including the hazardous job of recycling. Tech will improve but EV's need to get 3X - 4X more efficient. Long way to go. Plus the problems of wind & solar are becoming more apparent.

      We don't need electric cars to stop buying oil from the Middle East. The US has the capability to produce more oil than the entire Middle East and way more natural gas but we are hamstrung by our politicians - especially the Democrats.

      As to the technology, one has to argue that it is better than the existing and sustainable. EV's fail on both accounts. They aren't cheaper to buy, operate or maintain (try spending >$20K to replace a battery after five years). Their demand for rare-earth minerals such as cobalt can't be sustained for a population of EV's the size of the fleet of ICE vehicles. And the power demands on the electric grid are being strained with just the EV's in service now. That's not to mention that without the generous subsidies to EV manufacturers, EV's wouldn't be selling except as novelties.
