The unprecedented sanctions imposed on Russia have seriously backfired and plunged Germany into a severe economic crisis.

I think the world should be happy that Germany is trying to limit their CO2 emissions.

Of course, living in poverty is the best way to reduce emissions. But I dont think most Germans will be happy with that once they understand what it means.

Germany is a pretty rich country that has extracted enormous wealth out of the world throughout the decades, I think it should stop burning fossil fuels that they get for cheap from poorer countries like Russia.

And do you know why Germany is so rich? Its because of a large industrial base, which is very competetive globally thanks to cheap Russian energy (and low wages). Renewables are nice but they can never power a steel plant or a petrochemical plant. And now Germany is actually using more dirty energy sources than before, like coal or fracking gas. Basically the current government is destroying all the wealth that was generated over decades.

Wealth isn’t only in steel plants, you know?

I would still like it if we did some steel, but we currently don’t have Russian gas, since they were a unreliable trading partner. So we’ll have to figure something else out, I hope with less fossil fuels, like gas.
