Kontrordine Kompagni!

Per decenni la corrente liberal socialista presente nel parlamento europeo ha posto come priorità massima l’abbandono del carbone fossile e del petrolio e gas naturale, mettendo come imperativo il passaggio alle energie alternative.

Sono financo volate parole grevi, nonché epiteti da angiporto. Quanti avessero cercato di difendere il povero carbone oppure il misero petrolio sarebbero stati immediatamente tacciati di essere nazionalsocialisti ed. ovviamente, omofobi.

Poi venne la recessione sia nell’eurozona sia nei tre grandi paesi dell’Unione: Germania, Francia ed Italia.

The European commission announced on Thursday it backs 55 new fossil fuel projects, as part of a list of priority energy projects. These include new gas pipelines and LNG terminals, to import fracked gas from the United States. Friends of the Earth Europe reacted in a statement that these projects could shackle Europe to decades more of fossil fuel use and asked MEPs to reject all upcoming fossil fuel projects.

Reuters. 2019-11-02. EU unveils list of priority energy projects, including oil and gas

The European Commission published its list of energy projects on Thursday eligible to receive EU funding of up to 30 billion euros ($34 billion), including new oil and gas projects which are likely to draw criticism from Green EU lawmakers.

The question of whether projects related to fossil fuels such as natural gas should be able to receive EU funds has been hotly debated as the European Investment Bank, the union’s lending arm, has signaled its ambition to ban all fossil fuel-funding by the end of 2020.

But the European Commission, under its current head, Jean-Claude Juncker, has viewed natural gas as a transition fuel on the way for the bloc to become fully fossil fuel free by 2050.

The list published on Thursday comprises 151 projects which will be entitled to accelerated planning permission as well as the EU funding. It includes oil and gas projects as well as those related to electricity and smart grids, which will improve power supplies and integrate renewable energy sources.

The number of gas projects on the list is 32, down from 53 two years ago, the Commission said. These include pipeline and liquefied natural gas terminal projects to make the bloc less reliant on Russian gas.

The projects are deemed to be of importance to the EU’s shared energy infrastructure and are eligible for funding from a 30 billion euro fund that supports energy, transport and digital infrastructure.

Also on the list are power interconnectors between Britain and France, Germany and Norway and Britain and Norway as well as hydro pumped electricity storage and interconnectors between Baltic states.

The European Parliament and European Council have two months to either accept or reject the list of projects in full.

Incoming Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen, has made it one of her top priorities to make the EU completely carbon neutral by 2050, cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.

Juncker’s stance on natural gas has drawn ire from Green EU lawmakers and civil society organizations, which say natural gas is not sustainable enough and investing in new projects at this stage in the transition to a carbon neutral EU.

In a statement on their website, the Commission said the amount of gas projects on the list “is in line with the role of gas when meeting the EU’s decarbonization objectives.”
