Fear of Energy: Polish Prime Minister Calls Nord Stream 2 ‘Highly Dangerous’

Poland, one of the countries opposed to the creation of the international project known as Nord Stream 2 pipeline, to deliver gas and oil from Russia’s energy fields to Europe has proposed an alternative project which would create its own pipeline, dubbed Baltic Pipe. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has criticized the Nord Stream 2 project, Polish Radio reported on Friday (9 March).

“Poland achieved independence from Russia’s Gazprom long ago; we’ve created a terminal in the city of Swinoujscie and are now planning to increase its processing capabilities, Moreover, we are now in talks with Denmark and Norway,” Morawiecki said during a press conference after talks with his Lithuanian opposite number.

The official noted that Poland and other Baltic states considers Nord Stream 2 “highly dangerous for this part of Europe.” This is understandable as in the past Russia has tended to treat Poland as a semi – autonomour province. The Poles also have little reason to trust their southern neighbour Germany, which also has a track record for using Poland as a training ground for its combat troops.

The head of the German energy company Uniper took a different line, saying that the completion of Nord Stream 2 was necessary to provide security for gas deliveries to Europe.

Last month it was reported that Poland intended to launch its own gas pipeline project, Baltic Pipe, which, in contrast to Nord Stream 2, would lead from Denmark instead of Russia. It is hard to see any logic in this as North Sea gas fields are becoming depleted and rumours of massive, unexplored oil and gas fields off The Shetland Islands are unconfirmed as yet. Poland has already tried to block the construction of Nord Stream 2, with Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki asking US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to make sure that US sanctions cover Nord Stream 2 and those European companies that involved in the project be fined.

A press release by Nord Stream 2 suggests the first pipes for the Nord Stream 2 project are being fabricated at a plant of OMK, which is one of the three pipe suppliers selected by Nord Stream 2 AG, in Vyksa, Russia, in this undated photo provided to Reuters on March 23, 2017. Poland claimed that Nord Stream 2 would increase Europe’s dependence on imported Russian gas.

Nord Stream 2 is a joint venture of Russia’s Gazprom with France’s Engie, Austria’s OMV AG, UK-Dutch Royal Dutch Shell, and Germany’s Uniper and Wintershall. It aims to deliver 55 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas a year to the European Union across the Baltic Sea to Germany.

The pipeline project has been welcomed by some countries in Europe and opposed by some others, including Ukraine and Poland, while the United States has also expressed its opposition.

Electricity cuts and power crisis predicted for Britain’s New Year Holiday

20 December, 2016

Thanks to successive governments (Labour from 1997 to 2010 and Conservative Lib – Dem from 2010 to 2015) their gullibility in falling victim to every confidence trickster who backed up an energy subsidy scam by saying, “I’m a scientist.” and their committment to supposedly sustainable but in reality intermittent energy sources for electricity,   The National Grid is failing to meet demand and “emergency power deals have become the norm,” according to a new report by a cross-party parliamentary group chaired by Grant Shapps.

Coal power station closures and the building of renewable energy plants will leave the country struggling to generate the required power supplies to feed British infrastructure and homes.

The British Infrastructure Group (BIG) believes the government’s attempt to meet climate change targets set by the EU and United Nations led to a cut back in capacity margins and extravagant price increases. The “interventionist energy policy,” Shapps believes, has left electricity supplies “dangerously small.” Shapps carefully omits to mention that the government’s only contingency plan for providing the power needed to meet peaks of demand (a sudden cold snap for example) is to spark up the thousands of diesel generators the earth loving politicians have concealed in goods containers on compounds sited around the country. Yes you read that right, diesel generators, the billions of pounds spent on wind and solar generation schemes and the billions of pounds spent on subsidising the farmers and landowners whose land the ‘sustainable’ power generators stand on have left us dependent on the dirtiest and most inefficient method of generating power to meet peak winter demand.

The report found that in recent winters the nation’s spare electricity pool went from 17 percent in 2011-12 to just one percent this year. To restore the stock, household bills would have to increase by as much as £30 a year until 2020. Government estimates predict price increases of around half of that.

“While nobody questions the noble intentions behind these ‘green power’ policies, it is clear that the unshakeable confidence of the community who swore ‘the science is settled’ was sadly misplaced and policies  designed to reduce Britain’s carbon dioxide emissions were not only wrong headed in a world that has stubbornly refused to get any warmer for almost twenty years (accoring to the ‘settled science’ we should have been frying eggs on the concrete in mid December here in northern England by now, not wondering how we are going to kep warm through the winter) but have had the unintended effect of hollowing out the reliability of the electricity generating sector,” the former co-chair of the Conservative Party said.

So to avoid major power cuts over Christmas 2017, Shapps added, the government should “work to make it profitable for private companies to invest and innovate in our electricity markets once again.”

Last year, National Grid paid nearly £40 million ($49.7 million) for emergency power. This winter, the group was given the go-ahead by the government to shell out an estimated £122.4 million. These costs are later spread out across the network and picked up by consumers in the form of growing bills.

Oh What A Tragedy For Globalists: Here’s what we will miss by being outside the EU

Under the treaty of Lisbon, a massive transfer of soverignty from member states to the unelected Bureaucrats of Brussels which was sneaked through by the EU commission after plebiscites in France and Netherlands voted down a European constritution, here’s what would have been coming our way in 2017 had we not voted to leave.

Massive Transfer of Powers to the European Union

From 1 April 2017 the rule of ‘Qualified Majority Voting’ and the double majority rule is obligatory; henceforward a blocking minority can be made up of at least four Member States representing at least 35% of the EU population. In other words, Germany, France and two debtor nations that are in thrall to the EU and so will do as they are told or face punitive ‘sanctions’ from Brussels, Greece and Portugal will be able to exercise control over EU policy.
What this means is that a British Government no longer has control over forty-four areas of policy that affect every area of life for the British people.

Transfer of Powers under the Lisbon Treaty.

Merkel Furious After Trump Refusal To Toe The Party Line Causes G-7 Failure To Agree To Agree On Climate Change
So things dod not go according to the New World Order plan at Donald Trump’s first G-7 summit, where the US president refused to be pushed around by leaders of second division powers including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and new French President Macron. The G7 was downgrated from the G8 because of Vladimir Putin’s obstinacy in resisting Obama’s efforts to depose the Assad regime in Syria, now appearsd to be heading towards further diminuition as the G6.

EU Refuses to Block Eurozone Integration to Reach Agreement With UK
Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said at the E?U summit on British membership terms that the European Union wants to reach an agreement with the United Kingdom, but it is not prepared to compromise the banking union (financial integration) or the further integration of monetary union (UK being forced to abandon the pound join the Euro?) to achieve this goal.

Afghan troops defect to Taliban in Helmand

According to news sources in Pakistan, up to sixty five Afghan soldiers, trained and armed by US and European military advisers, have defected to the resurgent Taliban, taking their weapons and equipment with them. Another 88 are reported to have been killed in heavy fighting between Taliban irregulars and government forces in the southern province of Helmand.

Ah Vienna

As rumors of new E U sanctions against Russia’s major energy firms are leaked to the news feeds with thw whisper that the measures will be announced tomorrow, it appears there is a rift in the union. Peter Spiegel of The Financial Times reports that one country holding out on sanctions has led to an emergency meeting of EU diplomats being called this very evening.

Nobody has mentioned which country it might be but the Boggart Blog bookie is not taking bets on anywhere that has a name beginning with an ‘A’ and ending in ‘ustria’…

Yeah, That’ll Put The Wind Up Putin

Yesterday mainstream media reported Russia is engaged in a military build up along the Ukrainian border while Moldova’s breakaway province of Transnistria, makes noises about wishing to join The Russian Federation. We think David Cameron should be talking to Transnistria about the advantages of their joining the British Empire, check our our post on Transnistria from yesterday’s Noggart Blog and you will understand why.

Into the fray steps Barack Hussein Obama who is drawing red lines on the map again. The last one he drew went from Kuala Lumpur to Diego Garcia.

To counter that Russia’s show of military muscle, Obama and the US – of sector-wide sanctions on the Russian economy. According to administration officials, financial services, energy, metals and mining, defence and engineering are all in the crosshairs.

Once again Obama is all huff and puff and no substance, promising yesterday that “if Russia escalates the situation”, by which we assume he means they invade and annex the Russian – speaking east of Ukraine, then the US and the EU will impose “a greater cost”.

Based on Obama’s track record for wimping out when people challenged his authority as President Of The Entire Universe And Everything Else besides, we should be under no illusions as to what the US President might mean by full-on sanctioning of the Russia economy.

So as Russia lines up the tanks, planes, helicopter gunships, EMP weapons possibly and thousands of well equipped troops, in response Obama has threatened to cancel the bus passes of retired Russian oligarchs living in Florida.

Yeah, that’ll put the wind up Putin.

Petrodollar Alert: Putin Prepares To Announce ‘Holy Grail’ Gas Deal With China

If the West has been trying to force Russia and China to recreate a twenty first century version of the old communist bloc, the alliance of a natural resource superpower and the other a fixed capital, low labour cost high output economic powerhouse and to give these two every possible incentive to create a new global reserve currency to marginalize the dollar and encourage Rouble and Renminbi bilateral trade, then this weeks events show the plan is going beautifully

While there have been no major developments or stock / currency trading crises as a result of the shift in the geopolitical axis that has shifted power away from the USA and the G7 (most insolvent nations) as a result of the bungled regime change attempts in Syria and Ukraine the chess board is looking very different. The west is focused on day to day developments in Ukraine, and how to halt Russian expansion through appeasement and limp wristedness (hardly a winning tactic as events in the 1930s demonstrated), Russia is once again thinking 3 moves ahead.

While Europe is furiously scrambling to find alternative sources of energy should Gazprom turn off the tap until Ukraine gives back the pipelines and the territory through which they run, to a government owned by The Kremlin,(the surge in Ukraine gas prices by 40% is probably the best predictor of that), Russia is preparing the announcement of the “Holy Grail” energy deal with none other than China, a move which would send geopolitical shockwaves around the world and bind the two nations in a commodity-backed axis.

Meanwhile The EU, with head somewhat in the sand (as the democratic Euopean nations were in the summers of 1914 and 1939, is preparing for a trade war with Russia over Crimea (they are going to impose a fifteen point penalty on Roman Abramovitch’s Chelsea in the Premier League).

Europe began preparations for a trade war with Russia on Friday 21st March, with the EU executive in Brussels ordered to draft plans for cancelling all marks and Spencers gift voucher bought with Roubles. Much more substantive sanctions will be imposed against Moscow if Vladimir Putin presses ahead with Russian territorial expansion.

Unfortunately the bigger and more economically stable EU countries; Germany, Netherlands, France (stable? have to query our source about that,) and Britain, have major but very different interests at stake in Russia. This has led to disagreements over the tactics for a campaign of economic measures. Fears that a trade war would be highly risky and potentially ruinous are leading many political figures to advise caution.

A two-day summit of EU leaders from countrie that could afford Ryanair tickets to send delegates to Brussels was dominated by the Crimea crisis and ended with a further 12 Russian politicians and military figures being added to a list of 21 so far subjected crossed off the EU Christmas Card list.

Without American leadership, democracy is in peril? Not really.

The west is currently not winning THEY SAY because of the failure of American leadership. This is untrue, most of the problems exist because America is leading the world towards war.

Search For Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight Descends To Farce

As a follow up to yesterday’ Boggart Blog article highlighting the farcical elements of the search for Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 flight MH370 in which we highlighted the things that ought to have made impossible the mysterious disappearance of a modern, technologically advanced passenger aircraft over any ocean impossible, it was already looking as if due to official obfuscation, cover ups and blame shifting this one was being left to the conspiracy theorists.

Today Tania Branigan in The Guardian is following our lead with this article:

The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight was descending into confusion and acrimony on Wednesday as Vietnam called off part of its search pending further information from Malaysia.

As families spent a fifth day waiting for news of flight MH370, which vanished with 239 people on board, disagreements within the international search operation were surfacing and Malaysian officials failed to clarify the aircraft’s last known movements.

Vietnam said it had halted its air search and scaled back a sea search while it waited for Malaysia to offer more detail.

“We’ve decided to temporarily suspend some search and rescue activities, pending information from Malaysia,” Vietnam’s deputy minister of transport, Pham Quy Tieu, told AFP.

Meanwhile reports circulating yesterday that the Malaysian military had tracked the Boeing 777 as it mad a westbound turn and flew several hundred kilometres before disappearing over the Malacca Strait between the Malay Peninsula and the Island of Java have now been denied.

Do you get the feeling there is a desperate cover up going on. Could it perhaps be anything to do with this?
