European Union to Mandate a Reduction in Electricity Use

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The European Union plans to mandate the amount of electricity EU citizen members can use. Likely it is using Russia as an excuse to implement their Green mandates as much as they care about Ukraine. Biden is in lock-step and entered into an agreement with the EU this past June “in line with the Paris Accord and and our shared goal of net zero emissions no later than 2050.”

Many may be inclined to wring their hands over the positions various European leaders are taking especially energy. They have been neutered in all intents and purposes by the European Union. The EU is run by the the European Commission.

Former German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen was narrowly confirmed as the President of the European Commission, the powerful administrative arm of the European Union in July 2019. The woman who is running the show for the European Union.

You will see her in all meetings of any consequence and there is a reason. She is the woman at the helm.

Ursula von der Leyen

Again, notice not a single person will contemplate increasing supply…. because they are so ideologically wedded to their climate change religion. She states she wants to “flatten the curve.” We, in the U.S., know exactly what flattening the curve entails.

Energy isn’t the only item Europe is dependent upon Russia for.

Someone made a list of what EU won’t get anymore with the Russia boycott.: “nat-gas, rare earths, inert gases, potash, sulfur, uranium, palladium, vanadium, cobalt, coke, titanium, nickel, lithium, plastics, glass, ceramics, pharmaceuticals, ships, inks, airplanes, polymers, medical and industrial gases, sealing rings & membranes, power transmission, transformer and lube oils, neon gas for microchip etching, etc., etc.”


This should work in destroying Germany including Europe as a whole.  Biden is along for the ride. 

The European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen said the move is necessary to weaken Russia’s economy further as it continues its invasion of Ukraine.  Russian President Vladimir Putin had earlier warned that Moscow will stop supplying oil and gas if price caps are imposed. It is reported that Russia is selling Nat Gas to China who in turn sells it on the market.



So you’re the buyer where the seller is no longer doing business with you, then somehow you’re telling the seller, “Hey, we won’t pay you anymore than this amount” That’s some genius level stuff.

Putin stops pumping.

A refresher on Von der Leyen as we review what she has in mind and what Biden and she agreed to regarding energy.

European Union’s Ursula von der Leyen moves on property confiscation

The section on Climate Change:

Climate Change

Von der Leyen called for the European Union to be “carbon neutral” by 2050. She pledged to propose a “European Green Deal” during her first 100 days in office. The deal would include the first “European Climate Law” to enshrine the 2050 climate neutrality target into law: “Carbon emissions must have a price. Every person and every sector will have to contribute.”

She also pledged to introduce a “Carbon Border Tax” that would apply to non-European companies, to ensure that European companies “can compete on a level playing field.” In addition, a “European Climate Pact” would “commit to a set of pledges to bring about a change in behavior, from the individual to the largest multinational.”

Von der Leyen’s social reengineering scheme would be paid for by European taxpayers: A “Sustainable Europe Investment Plan” would “support €1 trillion of climate investment over the next decade in every corner of the EU.” She also vowed that the EU “will lead international negotiations to increase the level of ambition of other major emitters by 2021.”

President Biden issued a joint statement in June 2022 in a meeting with von der Leyen:


Joint Statement by President Biden and President von der Leyen on European Energy Security

The United States and the European Commission are also taking decisive action to reduce overall demand for fossil fuels in line with the Paris Agreement and our shared goal of net zero emissions no later than 2050. 
The Task Force has met regularly to discuss options to reduce Europe’s demand for natural gas and has also met with key stakeholders to promote the deployment of heat pumps, smart thermostats, and energy demand response solutions.  
We will encourage Member States and European and U.S. companies to reach an initial goal of deploying at least 1.5 million energy saving smart thermostats in European households this year.  In the coming days we will reconvene with Member States and stakeholders to discuss actionable policy recommendations to accelerate smart thermostat and heat pump deployment and production in an effort to ensure supply for key energy efficiency solutions are ramping to meet the growing demand. 

Mindful of the environmental impact of LNG production and consumption, the United States and the European Commission will step up their cooperation to reduce methane emissions, to ensure that EU-U.S. LNG trade is aligned with the scope of an internationally accepted measurement, reporting and verification standard for methane emissions while working to reduce venting and flaring in natural gas production, and methane leakage in the transmission and LNG supply chain.
We will also continue our cooperation on reduction of methane emissions globally. Most recently, the joint launch with 11 other countries of the Global Methane Pledge Energy Pathway will advance both climate progress and energy security internationally.
The Swiss are all in.

European Union elects to move toward a Communist Utopia

July 24, 2019 — bunkerville – Don’t say I didn’t warn.

  • An examination of von der Leyen’s main policy proposals reveals that she is calling for a massive expansion of top-down powers of the European Commission. Her proposals would substantially increase the role of Brussels in virtually all aspects of economic and social life in Europe — all at the expense of national sovereignty.
  • Von der Leyen warned that Brussels would overrule EU member states opposed to her tax overhaul… She called for a comprehensive “European Rule of Law Mechanism” to ensure the primacy of EU law over the national laws of EU member states. She warned that there would be financial consequences for member states that refuse to comply…. She called for a change in rules so that the EU could act even without the unanimous consent of EU member states
  • “What you’ve seen from Ursula von der Leyen today is an attempt by the EU to take control of every single aspect of our lives. She wants to build a centralized, undemocratic, updated form of Communism that will render [obsolete] nation state parliaments, where the state controls everything, where nation state parliaments will cease to have any relevance at all.”

“But it is in the aspect of defense that I think people’s minds should be focused. She’s a fanatic for building a European Army, but she’s not alone. When it’s completed, NATO will cease to exist or will not have any relevance in Europe at all.”— Nigel Farage, European Parliament, July 16, 2019.

Finally, a new “Common European Asylum System” would require all EU member states to offer asylum to migrants who request it: “We all need to help each other and contribute.”
