By the end of the next decade, the strain caused by massive inflows from interuptible energy sources such as wind and solar combined with the willful forced demise of stable sources will have transformed countries like Germany into brownout and blackout countries. And the Greens will still blame it on fossil fuels. Either the people will grow sick of them and kick those hucksters where it hurts allowing stable forms of energy their sway, or they will be very, very miserable. South Africans or Pakistanis are used to poor electricity, I wonder how comfy Germans will cope with that.
The natural gas industry is eager to see a jump in demand now that Germany has come up with a plan to end electricity generation by burning coal. That might never happen, according to a report by one of the nation’s largest energy companies.
