Mary Robinson is a valiant fighter for Our Planet
Then the war in Ukraine erupted, not suddenly, but with a long history leading towards war!
Mary Robinson: Ukraine fallout should serve as catalyst for move to clean energy | May 4, 2022 |
A fallacy as she should know ☮️

Former President of Ireland and Chair of the Elders Mary Robinson has warned that the fallout from the Ukraine war should not catapult Ireland in the direction of increased fossil fuel usage but should instead serve as a catalyst for a move to clean energy.
She is concerned that the war on our doorstep in Europe could cause the climate change issue to slip down the agenda and potentially put pressure on people to accelerate their use of fossil fuels.
"... it does put pressure to get out of Russian oil and gas."
"Frankly Europe should do that now but it should then pivot to getting gas in the very short-term from, as is happening, from Qatar, from the US, from Azerbaijan, possibly from parts of Africa even. And pivot in the short-term so people don't have complete no energy."
The leaders in power in Europe do think on the same lines as you mention ...
However, Mrs Robinson said the plan should not then be to open new North Sea oil fields or get involved in fracking "or any solution like that."
But Mrs. Robinson, the 2014 Coup d'état was about a push for fracking .... not only in Ukraine, but across other European nations.
The LNG transported by vessels from Texas, Louisiana and Newfoundland comes from fracking. That is no secret as president Joe Biden was well aware before the war started and he promised NATO leaders in Europe they can count on the United States of America by shunning any future supply of oil and gas from pariah state Russia. #stopnordstream
A decision with American self-interest in mind. MAGA MAGA ...Biden and Trump in unison.

PPC's lignite plants are to continue to operate beyond 2023, in a reversal of the government's decarbonization policy.
The government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis promised in 2019 a quick decarbonization of the country's power sector through the decommissioning of almost all lignite-fired plants by 2023.
