However, for Germany, Nord Stream 2 is extremely important and it cannot refuse it in principle. And the Anglo-Saxons themselves are to blame. After all, they convinced continental Europe, including Berlin, to abandon cheap nuclear energy. But it is not realistic to replace all decommissioned atomic capacities with wind energy. Even if you “poke” the entire North Sea with “windmills”, this will not solve the problem, but only exacerbate the situation.
All this “ecological” energy is living off the money, which is primitively taken away from nuclear scientists. But even now, “clean” electricity is very expensive, and when there is no nuclear power plant, there will be no one to sponsor this orgy. Consequently, the cost of goods in the European Union will increase.
In this way, Great Britain and the USA decided to “move” the main competitor. But here the first “Nord Stream” “drew” first, and then “Nord Stream - 2”. Then London and Washington reared up and began to bark "dogs." But the Germans were already thinking about whether to build them, for reliability, also the Nord Stream-3.
That is why, everything is rightly said by the Minister of Energy of Russia Alexander Novak. He is confident that Nord Stream-2 will be built and commissioned before the end of 2019, even if the United States imposes sanctions on its participants. Although he hopes that Washington will not do such stupidity. And even the opposition of Denmark, about which сообщалось earlier, cannot become an obstacle to the project.
