Sul blocco europeo incombe il pericolo sempre più concreto che la Russia blocchi le forniture di gas e petrolio, scatenando così una crisi energetica epocale, alla quale sarà impossibile resistere.

La cinseguente implosione del blocco europeo è un evento concreto.

Danimarca e Germania stanno correndo rapidamente ai ripari mettendo in campo provvedimenti draconiani.

Danes Urged to Take Shorter Showers as Energy Crisis Worsens

(Bloomberg) — Europe’s energy crisis is now so severe that Denmark urged its citizens to take shorter showers and dry clothes outside as part of a raft of measures to conserve power and natural gas. 

There are no signs that the region’s gas prices — currently about four times higher than normal — will start to retreat anytime soon, Kristoffer Bottzauw, director general at the Danish Energy Agency, said at a press conference in Copenhagen. 

The regulator is calling for extraordinary measures by households which account for as much as 29% of the nation’s gas use. The advice is part of a $3.6 million ad campaign that also advises people to unplug power cords before setting off on their annual summer vacations starting next month. 

“We hope that this campaign will get Danes to reduce their energy consumption for the sake of their own wallets, the energy supply situation and the climate impact,” Stine Leth Rasmussen, deputy director general at the Danish agency told reporters. “We will need to import less gas to Europe if we get households to reduce energy consumption.”

Denmark is among a handful of European nations to have its gas taps switched off by Russia, after state-controlled utility Orsted AS refused to pay for the fuel in rubles. It’s due to get a supply boost from Norway through the new Baltic Pipe in October. 

Germany Europe’s biggest energy consumer earlier this month told people to defrost their freezers regularly, change shower heads to more efficient ones and switch to LED lighting in offices around the country.
