Europe Braces For First Cold Winter Blast With Gas Prices Set To Spike Again

After months of rollercoaster moves in European nat gas prices as energy producers and traders jockeyed for position ahead of what could be a brutal winter, all bets are now off as Europe is set to get its first cold blast of the winter season, putting the continent’s already scant energy supplies under pressure.

According to Bloomberg, temperatures are set to slide starting next week, with parts of Italy forecast to experience weather as much as 2 degrees Celsius below normal. Southern France, Spain and Germany are also forecast to be colder-than-usual, according to The Weather Company. Centrica, the U.K.’s top energy supplier, warned its 9 million customers to prepare for an icy blast that could last as long as six weeks.

Europe, whose nat gas inventories in storage are near record lows for this time of the year, due to

1) Brussel's catastrophic fossil fuel policies (REFUSING TO SIGNING LONG-TERM SUPPLY CONTACTS, BECAUSE THAT WOULD SEND THE “WRONG SIGNAL” REGARDING GLOBAL WARMING ), and

2) Brussel’s promoting "green" energy at all costs, even though it is nowhere near ready to take the reins from fossil energy, will be particularly sensitive to cold snaps in the coming months, with gas prices up for a second week after surging to records in October. Extra supplies promised by Russia have so far been negligible and Norwegian flows have been reduced because of heavy maintenance, and gas storage is at record lows

Hello Willem, thank you for your comment and thank you for your prolific contribution to the website. The" bratty children" will pay for their ignorance of the past . While our world, yours and mine, may seem Dickensian to them, it will become so real once on a dark windless freezing night the turbines stop turning their sorry metallic blades ....the word UNRELIABLE will somehow just start to mean something for them.  They too will be cold in their bed , a kind of cold you never forget. They will be shivering in their European and North American tenements while their globalist masters will enjoy a cruise in the Bahamas.

Hi Monique,

I grew up outside Rotterdam.

My story is the same.

One coal stove to heat the living room and kitchen 

The rest was not heated 

Gas came in the 50s, and we installed an instant hot water heater, which provided hot water for bathing.

In Brussels ,in the fifties, I grew up in a house with no central heat. We had three coal stoves, one in the kitchen, one in the living room, one in the basement. My bedroom was unheated and my mother often heated a brick which she wrapped in a towel to warm my bed . The winters in Brussels can be cold and damp .We heated the bath water (  a bath we took once a week including my brother and my parents successively in the same water, other days we washed in the kitchen sink ) in several large pots on the top of the basement coal stove which my mother unloaded in the tub with constant refills to allow the four of us to bathe. ( the bathtub was in the basement adjacent to the coal reserve ).Oh that feeling when the water was cooling off and quickly I started shivering and the pots were not warm enough to warm the bath water a little bit longer.

Then when I was 13 my father purchased a propane gas heater, life became sweet. We had warm water in the basement bathroom.  

Since those miserable " no gas" days, life for the working class in Belgium has enormously improved ,I fear it is about to be lost for some, sadly unaffordable for many.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
