The future in Germany is lockdown after lockdown.
After the COVID lockdown, Germany now moving to impose a climate lockdown, says German Editor in Chief.
Germany’s Bild TV YouTube site here looks at the latest Socialist-Green government’s initiatives to combat the country’s deepening energy crisis.
The latest initiatives have been drawn up by Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Green Party). Among the new rules, according to BILD TV: Shops are no longer allowed to keep the entrances continuously open (in order to prevent energy from being wasted by excess heating or air conditioning).
In the video, BILD TV asks its Editor in Chief, Claus Strunz, what’s behind the new regulation, commenting that essentially what we have is a government that is increasingly encroaching ever deeper into our private lives. “Something that nutty could only be conjured up by some crazy bureaucrats,” Strunz comments. “That’s precisely what we don’t want: the government ruling the area of retail.”
According to Strunz, “In a nutshell, Robert Habeck – this guy with a bushy hairdo, who sits around like a nice guy during the press conferences – is planning nothing other than the climate lockdown.”
Strunz sees a government that is going too far: “I see as the next step two officers walking through residential areas at 10 o’clock in the evening and saying, ‘Look up there! Two windows are partially open. Our list of fines says that’ll be a fine of 25 euros.’ Write them a ticket, just like illegal parking.”
Strunz continues: “I envision Christmas police who come around and say, ‘What? Christmas trees with electric lights? This year, and they are turning them on already at 5 pm and don’t turn them off until 9 pm? That’s a 50-euro fine!'”
Though the notion of an energy policy running loose harassing citizens may seem far-fetched, Strunz reminds us how just 2 years ago in Germany no one could imagine COVID lockdowns and 10 pm curfews.
Strunz sums up: “I believe that what we saw with Corona, we will see with climate.”
Back to 19th century: washcloths instead of showers!
Last Friday, the prime Minister of Baden Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann (Green Party) said in an interview that citizens should use a a washcloth instead of taking showers “all the time”:
“You don’t always have to shower. After all, there are washcloths and face cloths. A useful invention.” he said.

Europe may see a large number of climate refugees in the near future.
Parts of California have nice weather and good benefits for refugees.
Electricity may be in short supply, and water too.
However, the State does have many wineries.
Start now, thinking or where to go. Hope is not a plan.
There is NO GOOD part in California… IT’s just an absolute failed experiment.
What with all of the problems with high gas and electricity cost one can not say that there were not warned.
Hope this link works.
Coal is a good fuel for power plants but not useful for methane based chemical plants: eg plastics/fertilizers/hydrogen/urea which will be essentially shut down as methane supplies are diverted to more pressing needs. Metals processing in so far as heating is needed (casting/forging/bending/forming) is frequently dependent on methane as fuel source but also could be electrical but in that case huge amounts are needed. So metal processing industries will also be curtailed. The German economy will take a significant hit from the loss of methane over the next five years or more.
Better start fracking, but no, that would be the common sense thing to do. I scratch my head in amazement at the stupidity of politicians or is it that they are to afraid to admit that they made a mistake? T think the latter as opposed to the former.
Germany imports 32 percent of its natural gas supplies from Russia, who is now reducing those flows due to sanctions that Europe has imposed on the country since its invasion of Ukraine.
And should Russia reduce its exports to zero, Germany would have less than 3 months of natural gas supplies on hand if its storage areas are 95 percent full by November.
Germany is trying to eliminate energy imports from Russia and has already reduced natural gas imports from Russia by over 50%. The forecast for reaching 100% is mid-2924.
The bottom line is the German government does not want any companies paying rubles for energy products. In Russia, Putin is interfering with Gazprom, who wants to sell as much gas as possible to the EU, paid for in Rubles, because banking sanctions make Euro’s worthless to them. Putin recognizes that Germany plans to stop buying Russian gas eventually, so he appears to be interfering in Gazprom’s business for political reasons.
This political war is interfering with the Russia – EU energy trade: The lowest price natural gas for Germany would be via pipeline from Russia, not by ship via the US. Both nations are suffering from the sanctions and political interference with free trade. Meanwhile, the Ukraine war continues.
Every energy decision made in Germany seems like it is being made by an enemy nation that wants the German economy to fail.
Natural gas is not the only German energy import from Russia (the imports may now be lower today than they were a few months ago):
“So, besides running its coal plants, Germany is considering operating its 3 remaining nuclear reactors that are scheduled to be shuttered by the end of the year through this winter.
Germany, however, also gets most of its uranium fuel from Russia, which supplies more than a third of the global demand for enriched uranium.
Germany’s three remaining nuclear reactors run mainly on uranium from Russia and Kazakhstan.
Germany’s also gets 34 percent of its oil from Russia and 53 percent of its hard coal supplies. Germany’s coal mines supply the country with lower-BTU lignite coal since hard coal production was phased out in the country in 2018. In 2021, Germany accounted for 46 percent of the total lignite produced in the European Union.”

Funny as hell… I remember that during OPERATION COVIDIUS doors and windows should be ALWAYS OPEN, now the opposite!
Clearly the FEAR of mythical RNA “SARS-CoV-2” is now smaller!
