German Municipalities Preparing for Dark Winter of Blackouts, Simulate 400 Deaths in First 96 hours

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


This article was originally published by Lance D. Johnson at Natural News. 

The German Association of Towns and Municipalities (DStGB) are now warning about a catastrophe that doomsday preppers have long prepared for: blackouts and civil unrest. Thanks to European leaders’ knee-jerk sanctions against Russia and Europe’s hasty implementation of green energy policies, the European people will have to pay insane energy costs and live under the constant threat of blackouts, especially during the upcoming winter months.

Municipalities in Germany are gearing up for a dark winter of blackouts. The Hessian Rheingau-Taunus district hired a company to simulate and analyze the most pertinent threats in the event of a blackout this winter. The simulation predicts that 400 deaths are inevitable inside the district in just the first 96 hours. If temperatures drop, the deaths will be much more catastrophic, especially for the elderly.

The Federal Association of Private Providers of Social Services (BPA) warn that “this crisis will cost some providers their existence because the burdens from rising energy costs, general inflation, and the omnipresent shortage of skilled workers can no longer be borne.” Retirement homes and nursing homes will be “threatened to an unprecedented extent.”

German municipalities preparing for blackouts this winter

DStGB chief executive Germ Landsberg said that hacker attacks have always been a threat to the grid, but this year “there is a risk of a blackout” based on “an overload of the power grid.” He pointed out that 650,000 fan heaters were sold this year. If the gas supply fails and all these heaters are connected to the electric grid at once, a blackout could likely occur. The district is making preparations to consolidate energy for civil protection services and to ensure that electricity is available for servers and satellite-supported communication systems.

In the first twenty-four hours of German blackout, substations would fail and water tanks would run dry, causing an entirely new set of problems. Livestock would quickly die. Looting and arson would contribute to hundreds of millions of dollars in damages within the first day. In just two days, most cell phones would be inoperable. People would panic quickly. Violence would overtake the streets. District fire inspector Christian Rossel is warning Germans to prepare by getting a 14-day supply of food and drinking water.

The German government’s €65 billion financial aid package will attempt to offset some of the high energy costs, but at the end of the day, the government cannot print energy. If the energy is not there and the grid is overwhelmed, no amount of money will bring the lights and the heat back on. German economist Jörg Krämer said that the government’s plan only “create[s] the illusion that large parts of the population can be protected from the consequences of rising energy prices.”

Germany is not the only country facing a potential dark winter. France’s Reseau de Transport d’Electricite warned citizens that they will be asked several times this winter to cut back on their electricity usage. Finland is also warning citizens about upcoming outages and telling everyone to prepare.

The European Commission is taking action now, with new regulations that call on all European governments to cut electricity usage by 10 percent. The regulations include a mandatory 5 percent reduction during peak hours. Germany’s businesses are now paying electricity prices that are 1,000% higher than normal, and many businesses are currently collapsing due to the high energy costs.

      :twisted: SHOCKING document: How the US PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :idea:

      Markus Andersson ……Around :?: 15th September 2022 :idea:

      https://nyadagbladet.se/utrikes/shocking-document-how-the-us-planned-the-war-and-energy-crisis-in-europe/amp/

      ***

      As the first outlet in Europe, Nya Dagbladet can publish what appears to be CLA$$IFIED US PLAN$…to CRUSH the EUROPEAN
      ECONOMY….BY means of a WAR in UKRAINE…and….an INDUCED…….ENERGY CRISIS :!: :evil: :idea:

      RAND Corporation’s THINK TANK, which has a huge work force of 1,850 employees and a budget of $350 MILLION, has the official aim of “IMPROVING policies and decision-making through research and ANALy$I$”

      It is primarily connected to the UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT of DEFENCE and is infamous for having been INFLUENTIAL IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF military and other STRATEGIE$ DURING the COLD WAR. :idea:

      A DOCUMENT…SIGNED….RAND :!: :!: under the opening HEADING of…….“WEAKENING GERMANY STRENGTHENING the U.S.”

      suggests that there is AN “URGENT NEED” FOR an influx of RE$OURCES FROM OUTSIDE…TO…MAINTAIN THE overall AMERICAN

      ECONOMY…….but “E$PECIALLY the BANKING system” :!: :!: :oops: :idea:

      Annonser:

      “ONLY EUROPEAN COUNTRIES….bound by EU and NATO commitments CAN PROVIDE US WITH THESE without significant military and political costs for us.”

      According to RAND, the MAIN OBSTACLE to this AMBITION……

      • beLIEve

        WHY….blame Americans :?:

        Maybe, the TITLE above…..should read………ZIONIST$ :?:

        Aka……How the….(US based) ZIONISTS……PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :?: :?:

    • beLIEve

      ……Continued…….How the US PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :idea:

      According to RAND, the MAIN OBSTACLE to this AMBITION…IS the GROWING INDEPENDENCE of GERMANY. :idea:
      Among other things, it points out that BREXIT :idea: has GIVEN GERMANY GREATER INDEPENDENCE and made it MORE DIFFICULT
      FOR the UNITED STATES TO INFLUENCE the decisions of EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS.

      A key OBJECTIVE that permeates this CYNICAL STRATEGY IS, in particular, TO DESTROY COOPERATION…BETWEEN…GERMANY
      and RUSSIA :twisted: …as well as…..FRANCE……which is SEEN AS……the GREATEST ECONOMIC and POLITICAL THREAT…TO…
      the UNITED STATES :!: :evil: :idea:

      ”If implemented, this scenario will eventually turn Europe into not only an economic, but also a political competitor to the United States.”, it declares.
      :mad: The only way: “DRAW BOTH SIDES INTO….WAR with UKRAINE” :idea:

      In order to crush this political threat, a STRATEGIC PLAN…. primarily focused on DESTROYING the GERMAN ECONOMY, is presented.

      “STOPPING RUSSIAN DELIVERIES….could CREATE…..a SYSTEMATIC CRISIS that would be DEVASTATING for the GERMAN ECONOMY…and…indirectly for the EUROPEAN UNION as a whole”, it states, and believes that…the KEY….I$….to DRAW the
      EUROPEAN COUNTRIES into WAR :!: :oops: :twisted: :idea: :idea:

      “The ONLY possible WAY to ENSURE….GERMANY REJECTS RUSSIAN ENERGY SUPPLIES…I$….to DRAW
      BOTH SIDES…into the MILITARY CONFLICT…..

      ……Continued…….How the US PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :idea:

      “The ONLY possible WAY to ENSURE….GERMANY REJECTS RUSSIAN ENERGY SUPPLIES…I$….to DRAW BOTH
      SIDES INTO…the MILITARY CONFLICT….in UKRAINE. :idea: :evil:

      OUR continued ACTIONS in this country WILL inevitably LEAD TO a MILITARY RESPONSE FROM RUSSIA. :idea:

      RUSSIA IS clearly NOT GOING to LEAVE to the massive UKRAINIAN ARMY’S PRESSURE ON the DONETSK Peoples REPUBLIC…WITHOUT
      a MILITARY RESPONSE. :idea:

      THIS WOULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE to PORTRAY…RUSSIA….AS the AGRESSIVE PARTY….and THEN….INPLEMENT the ENTIRE PACKAGE of SANCTIONS………WITCH :oops: HA$ ALREADY BEEN DRAWN UP :!: :!: :idea:

      GREEN PARTIES……WILL FORCE GERMANY to……”FALL into the TRAP.” :evil: :oops: :idea:

      The GREEN PARTIES in EUROPE are described as being particularly easy to manipulate into RUNNING the ERRAND$ of……AMERICAN IMPERIALI$M :!:

      “The PREREQUISITE for GERMANY to FALL INTO this TRAP…….IS….the dominant role of GREEN PARTIES and European IDEOLOGIES.
      The GERMAN ENVIROMENTAL MOVEMENTIS a highly dogmatic, if not FANATICAL, movement, which makes it quite EASY TO GET
      THEM to IGNORE….ECONOMIC ARGUMENTS”…..it writes….CITING…..the current FOREIGN MINISTER of GERMANY, Annalena
      BAERBOCK…..and…..CLIMATE MINISTER Robert HABECK…..as EXAMPLES of this type of POLITICIAN.

      “Personal characteristics and LACK of….PROFESSIONALISM……

    • beLIEve

      ……Continued…….How the US PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :idea:

      “Personal characteristics and LACK of PROFESSIONALISM :idea: ..MAKE IT….possible to assume that it is IMPOSSIBLE for THEM to
      RECOGNISE THEIR OWN…MISTAKES in time. :idea:

      It will therefore BE SUFFICIENT TO….rapidly…FORM a MEDIA IMAGE of PUTIN’S AGGRESSIVE WAR – and MAKE the GREENS INTO ardent and tough SUPPORTERS OF SANCTIONS – a ‘WAR PARTY’.

      THIS WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE…TO…IMPOSE SANCTIONS…WITHOUT any OBSTACLES.” :twisted:

      BAERBOCK is, i.a., well known for declaring that she WILL CONTINUE the SUSPENSION OF….RUSSIAN GAS even DURING the WINTER
      – REGARDLESS OF what her constituents think about the matter and the CONSEQUENCES FOR the GERMAN POPULATION. :mad:

      – WE WILL STAND WITH UKRAINE…and this means that THE SANCTIONS WILL STAY….ALSO IN WINTER time – EVEN IF IT GETS
      REALLY TOUGH…FOR….POLITICIAN$ :!: :!: :roll: SHE SAID at a conference in Prague RECENTLY. :mad:

      “IDEALLY – – – A COMPLETE HALT of SUPPLIES” :twisted:

      The AUTHOR$ EXPRESS a HOPE :evil: …..THAT the DAMAGE between GERMANY and RUSSIA……WILL BE so GREAT that……….
      IT WILL MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE for the COUNTRIES to RE-ESTABLISH…NORMAL RELATIONS later on. :twisted:

      “A reduction in RUSSIAN ENERGY SUPPLIES – :!: IDEALLY, a COMPLETE HALT of such supplies – WOULD LEAD TO
      DISASTROUS OUTCOMES for GERMAN INDUSTRY. :twisted:

    • beLIEve

      ……Continued…….How the US PLANNED the WAR and ENERGY CRISI$ in EUROPE :idea:

      The NEED to divert significant amounts of Russian gas FOR WINTER HEATING…WILL further EXACERBATE….the
      SHORTAGES. LOCKDOWNS in industrial enterprises would cause SHORTAGES of COMPONENTS and spare parts for
      manufacturing, a BREAKDOWN of LOGISTICS CHAINS….and, eventually…..a DOMINO EFFECT.”

      :mad: ULTIMATELY….a TOTAL COLLAPSE OF the ECONOMY in EUROPE…IS SEEN AS…. both probable and
      DESIRABLE :!: :evil:

      “Not only will it DELIVER a DEVASTATING BLOW to the GERMAN ECONOMY……..the entire economy of….
      The ENTIRE EU ECONOMY WILL inevitably COLLAPSE.” :evil: :twisted: :mad:

      It FURTHER POINTS out that….the BENEFITS of US – BASED COMPANIES…..HAVING LESS COMPETITION ON
      the WORLD MARKET…LOGISTICAL ADVANTAGES…and the OUTFLOW OF CAPITAL from EUROPE…. would
      mean that THEY WOULD be able to CONTRIBUTE TO the ECONOMY OF the UNITED STATES BY an
      estimated 7 – 9 TRILLION DOLLARS :!: :twisted:

      In addition, IT also EMPHASIS the IMPORTANT EFFECT OF many WELL-EDUCATED and young EUROPEANS…
      ….BEING FORCED…..TO IMMIGRATE TO the USA :!: :!: :twisted:

      :evil: :idea: RAND denies originating the report :mad: :idea:

      RAND Corporation issued a PRESS RELEASE on Wednesday DENYING that the REPORT originates from them.
      No comments are made regarding what parts of the report are false or what is accurate, apart from SIMPLY
      WRITING that……. the content is “BIZARRE” and that the document is “FAKE”” :cool:
