Emmanuel Macron's France is now dangerously close to suffering prolonged blackouts unless something is done, and quickly, to ensure that there is enough energy to go around to power at least the basic elements of society.
Back in November, we reported that half of France's nuclear power plants were already offline due to "routine maintenance." Now, even more of them are offline, which does not bode well for the coming months.
Since France is among the European Union countries that are no longer receiving cheap and abundant energy from Russia – France also went "green" just like Germany did – the nation faces the very real prospect of energy losses once the worst of winter strikes.
Right now, weather conditions in France are said to be warmer than usual, which is a good thing based on the circumstances. Should a cold snap hit, though, energy rationing could very quickly become a necessity in order to avoid a full-scale blackout across the country.
"Until January 15, we know that we will have no difficulty," announced Emmanuelle Wargon, who serves as President of France's Energy Regulation Commission. "Afterwards, if there is a cold snap, the situation will inevitably be more tense."
In recent weeks, energy production across France has dwindled to worryingly low levels. "Cracks" were discovered at numerous power stations throughout the country – this in addition to half of the country's nuclear generators being offline.
All the problems France is now seeing with energy production spell disaster at the first sign of colder weather. Once the warm spell passes, serious measures may have to be introduced to prevent the entire power grid from collapsing.
For the time being, France is having to massively scale back the amount of energy it supplies to neighboring countries that import it. One such country is the United Kingdom, which relies on French energy to keep its lights on.
Nearby Germany is also facing similar extreme energy-cutting measures as gas supplies dwindle downward due to the loss of Russian energy and the loss of its own domestic energy production due to having gone "green."
It turns out that wind turbines and solar panels are not enough to keep a country and its economy running, which Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and other globalist-controlled nations are now having to learn the hard way.
In Germany, gas consumption this winter will need to be reduced by at least 20 percent throughout the winter in order to keep the lights on and the economy afloat. Anything less than that could lead to a total collapse of the former economic powerhouse of Europe.
Germany relies, in some part, on French energy as well, which could complicate the matter even further. If France stops exporting energy to Germany like it is doing to the UK, then Germany's consumption levels will need to drop even further to compensate.
"Imagine if these countries didn't have all of the new 'citizens' that were forced upon them by the New World Order," one commenter wrote about how globalism has destroyed France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. "Subtract those millions and they wouldn't need so much power."
"They have adopted climate change as their new religion and freezing is just their way of doing penitence," responded another. "It will bring them closer to their heaven of a world without themselves. Saint Greta and Lord Schwab will be pleased."
