Oh this is just the beginning. The prices will continue to increase to stop people from traveling because they can't afford to anymore. That's the plan - to make sure we reduce our wealth so the elite can line their pockets and assert more control over our daily lives. They'll be fine - we won't be.

“In China, this declaration by the government last week to buy all types of energy sources at whatever price, that sent the global markets into a tizzy as well,” Eppel explained.

“And now there’s even talk that natural gas is getting so expensive in China that they’re thinking about shifting some of their production back to oil and coal … the market right now is a mess.”
That can't be good for the environment and Net Zero.

It is most certainly good for the environment of all the coal miners and their dependants. And all the businesses that supply the industry.

Chinese coal mines have been shuttered due to flooding.

They are in for rolling blackouts and a shitty cold winter.

Currently I am more concerned with the cost of natural gas to heat our homes, specifically with respect to the carbon tax on top of the cost of natural gas…

And on that interesting note, apparently Greta Thunberg is open to the idea of meeting with US President Biden at this next glorified climate conference thing in Ireland…. but she doesn’t expect much? Wow….just wow.

I think she should start with China’s leader as they are larger polluters have some accommodations freed up for her now that the two Micheals are back on Canadian soil.

Now, before environmentalists start rejoicing that this price squeeze actually is the rabbit hole you want to follow these activist groups down, be aware that one of the main accomplishments of all these machinations has been to put OPEC+ back in control of the world’s oil market….
