German energy minister invents new unit of measurement
In a German mainstream newspaper, on December 26, Economics Minister Robert Habeck was allowed to use a curious term without being contradicted.
Published: December 29, 2022, 7:13 am
In the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Habeck coined the term “climate watt hour” without correction. What that means is completely unclear.
Have the Greens invented a new unit of measurement for energy? Habeck was allowed to elaborate quite unchallenged on “climate watt hours” on Boxing Day.
In a kind of advertising article for the country’s Renewable Energy Plan [Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz, abbreviated to EEG], the FAZ invited the energy minister to rant on about utopian wind turbine targets. He expressed the desire to add an additional 10 gigawatts of wind power per year. That means about 2000 more windmills per year. However, this is technically impossible because eight new wind turbines would then have to be constructed every working day.
In addition, municipalities should benefit from the profits of the wind farm operators. In this context, Habeck used the term “climate watt hour”. He admitted that “ten gigawatts of new construction per year is of course a really high number – we’ve never done that in Germany, we’ve never been there – and that’s permanent”.
In addition, of course, the article did not inquire as to where the electricity should come from when there is no wind.
The FAZ reported verbatim:
The municipalities have now been given the right to share in the profits of the wind farm operators. “The municipalities can then use this financial participation of the municipalities in the amount of 0,2 cents per climate watt hour for other things, for example to renovate the swimming pool or outdoor pool. We are strengthening regional value creation through renewable energies.” Habeck also referred to a location advantage: “Companies will seek out and prefer regions that have a high density of renewable energies.”
The article in the FAZ is still online without correction.
Almost half of the electricity in Germany in 2022 came from renewable sources, he said. The goal of the government is to increase the share of electricity generated from renewable energies in electricity consumption to at least 80 percent by 2030.
People are dying because of the cold
With their ideological lie about the “energy transition”, the Greens have driven the country into the coldest Germany in its democratic history, according to former Bild editor Julien Reichelt.
“Because of high energy prices, because of low heating, people are dying,” he said.
“Cold is life-threatening. Much more dangerous than heat. Around 4,5 million people die every year as a result of the cold. Nine times more than the 500 000 people who die as a result of heat. You can tell that cold is far more dangerous than heat by the fact that our language knows the word ‘freeze’ but no word for dying from heat.
“Cold is dangerous, among other things, because our blood pressure rises when it is cold. Blood pressure is an absolute killer.
“The less heating, and that is exactly what the Green Party is asking us to do, the more people die as a direct result. There are countless ways to die from the cold, you don’t have to freeze to death straight away.”
Reichelt demonstrated how the “cold horror curve in Europe” showed the direct impact of energy prices being pushed up by green ideology.
“High energy prices will claim lives. Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of lives. The curves were calculated by the data analysts of the Economist, the best business magazine in the world.”
Meanwhile there has been an excess mortality of 60 573 deaths in England and Wales, which can be attributed to the cold. This compares to 791 deaths that can be attributed to heat: A ratio of one heat death to 76,8 cold deaths. This is the stuff with which climate hysterics want to construct a health catastrophe from heat, an undertaking that can no longer be surpassed in terms of cynicism.
In the course of their decarbonization fervor, the traffic-light coalition has also been touting green hydrogen. But because hydrogen changes the composition of the atmosphere, the climate impact could be much more serious than that of carbon dioxide. This is never questioned, and the traffic-light continues to subsidize the hydrogen industry with billions of taxpayers’ money.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.
