Austrian defense minister, Klaudia Tanner, has warned that Europeans could face blackouts that go on for days, leaving one–third of citizens unable to “supply themselves” with electricity. “The question is not whether it (the blackout) will come, but when it will come,” said Tanner, unsurprisingly blaming the war in Ukraine.
The ruling class member made the comments during an interview with the German news outlet Die Welt, according to a report by Summit News. “For Putin, hacking attacks on Western power supplies are a tool of hybrid warfare. We must not pretend that this is just a theory. We must be prepared for blackouts in Austria and Europe,” she added.
While Vladimir Putin remains the convenient scapegoat, others have pointed to Europe’s over-dependence on “green energy” and its shutting down of traditional coal-fired and nuclear plants as one of the primary reasons for increasing the risk of blackouts, according to Summit News.
The ruling class of Germany has warned its slaves to prepare for “nuclear emergencies” citing the Russia/Ukraine conflict as well.
Before winter began, cities across Germany announced they were planning to use sports arenas and exhibition halls as “warm-up spaces” to help freezing citizens who are unable to afford skyrocketing energy costs. Those costs were also partially due to sanctions put on Russia and the geopolitical atmosphere on the planet right now. But the European countries do need to shoulder much of the blame when it comes to their subjects experiencing blackouts.
Top Green Party official Winfried Kretschmann caused controversy earlier this year by suggesting Germans use washcloths instead of taking showers, as well as buying expensive eco-heating systems that are unaffordable for the average person. -Summit News
The warnings for Europe continue to come in from its rulers. Do they know something we don’t, or are they simply trying to create a horrific outcome so they can swoop in and “save” everyone with their solution?
