Bloomberg: EU victory in gas war with Russia will result in environmental disasters

The assertion that winter, and with it the crisis, is over may seem frivolous - after all, it has just gotten colder in Europe, it is still only the middle of January, and February and March are ahead. Nevertheless, the season is over for the European natural gas market. Gas reserves are sufficient, even if the cold returns. bad news is that it means that climate change is still happening. Bloomberg opinion columnist Javier Blas writes about this.

In other words, Europe won the gas war with Russia by pure chance, completely undeserved, and there is nothing to be proud of, the expert explains. After all, luck cannot be written as an asset of effort. And given the impending environmental disasters, even a satisfied smirk should be replaced with concern.

Consumption has decreased by 20%, the EU industry is fading, but this does not affect the environmental situation and global climate change, in which the hydrocarbon industry has been “investing” for many years. economy all over the world.

Instead of singing odes and rejoicing in "victory", the EU now needs to reflect on the uncontrollable factor that is the result of the larger scourge of climate change. The spring temperature for the New Year is a reason for joy for everyone who is only worried about gas prices. But such temperature indicators should worry everyone who thinks about the environment, the expert concluded.

    Bloomberg is crying, the Alps and the Danube are crying.
    It will be dirty and smelly new May. (As a result of climate change and coal power)
    After May there will be summer, and then,
    Again cold and frost, soup with a cat.

      Judging by the buildup of temperature swings in Eurasia, there will still be roofing felts. Yes, and in America, a snowstorm at the same time is worth something!

    Be that as it may, Europe will survive this winter, which we did not count on. And we will see what will happen next, but we will not guess any more. No matter how our president signed the decrees, Europe still stocked up on gas, and it is up to the FSB to decide who to say "thank you" to for this.

      A little longer, Urengoy-Pomary-Uzhgorod started working in 1984.
      Prior to that, they were developing deposits in the North Sea.
      Well, they stoked with coal with might and main.

      About the crisis in the West, agitprop has been crucifying for 100 years, and still nothing.
      It seems to me that it is not rational to believe the forecaster that from year to year he gives the same forecast, which from time to time does not come true.
