Claims by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland that the global energy crisis is a reason to move to so-called “green” energy faster, are out of touch with reality.no they're literally unsustainable, or non-newable, but good effort i guess.
In fact, the “great reset” going on all over the world right now is heading in the opposite direction — back to fossil fuels.
Lawyer and energy blogger Andrew Roman has accurately described it as “The Great U-Turn”.

Much of Europe — led by Germany — abandoned domestic energy security in the mad rush to go green, leaving the continent vulnerable to the whims of dictators like Russian President Vladimir Putin.
European nations are now in the conflicted position of arming Ukraine to fight Putin’s invasion, while simultaneously financing Putin’s invasion because they are so desperate for Russia’s natural gas and oil.
Because their leaders foolishly ignored domestic energy security, Europeans are now vulnerable to the twin dangers of skyrocketing energy prices and severe energy shortages this winter, if Putin decides to turn the screws on Europe’s energy supply.
When it comes to Canada’s energy supply, things are not that desperate, yet.
But it’s alarming that Trudeau and Freeland are doubling down on green propaganda and the foolish argument that renewable energy sources, given their current level of technology, are anywhere near ready to replace fossil fuels, especially in a big, cold, northern, sparsely-populated country like Canada.
Canada could be a global leader in sensible energy policies because we have huge domestic reserves of natural gas and safe nuclear technology.
Because nuclear power produces no greenhouse gases and natural gas burns at half the carbon intensity of coal, using them to replace coal-fired electricity globally is the single most effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
But first, our energy policy would have to make sense. Under Trudeau and Freeland, it doesn’t.
