After bowing its knee to the radical left-wing environmental movement for years, Germany has finally come to its senses and is turning on its coal-powered electrical plants.
Breitbart provides the details:
Despite the country’s obsession with climate-crazy policy decisions, Germany has announced that it will be forced to rely more heavily on coal for its electricity supply after Russia reduced the amount of gas it will supply to the country.
This has left the central European state in a very precarious situation regarding energy security, a predicament that was predicted by former U.S. President Donald Trump back in 2018 over the fact that the country was overly reliant on energy exports provided by Moscow.
While Trump was laughed at for his warning at the time, it appears that the former American head of state has been vindicated, with an article published by Deutsche Welle on Sunday reporting that the seismic reduction in the amount of gas being supplied by Russia has left Germany facing a potential energy crisis

It is not about CO2 emissions
Here is the thing, technology had been available for years that can scrub, the life-giving CO2 from coal emissions.
So if the opposition to coal plants is solely about CO2, why are the left-wing environmental extremists still opposed to them, if these emissions can be removed?

ANSWER: It quit being about the environment decades ago. It’s all left-wing politics now.
NOT SURPRISINGLY: You don’t hear a single complaint from the environmental extremists about all the new coal-powered plants that Communist China is constructing.

You can be sure of one thing, the Chinese Communist Party won’t be wasting any money installing CO2 scrubbers.
