Maybe if they knew what was going to be said they wouldn’t have allowed the speech you are about to see…
The former Minister of Energy, Yiannis Maniatis, speaking at the conference of the Circle of Ideas: “Greece after VII: Asymmetries and national agenda”, revealed a lot about the country and the green policy being promoted, while other countries are opening new coal plants !!!
As he emphasizes: “In the midst of the energy crisis from the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East, an important geopolitical opportunity is emerging for the country, on the one hand, to correct the EU’s energy policy mistakes. and on the other hand, to emerge as an important hub for the production of natural gas from the Greek fields and its transit”!
However, the government according to past statements is “green” and “We do not want and will not conduct oil and natural gas research in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean” (HERE).
Mr. Maniatis stated, among other things, in a speech, which they might not have hosted if they had known in advance what was going to be said:
- Globally, until 2050 the consumption of natural gas will increase, according to the International Energy Agency!
- We can’t have a magic button and make everything green! But we can’t say that to China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa who are BUILDING NEW COAL FACTORIES!!! We have 5,500 coal plants on the planet today! Germany has reopened its own!
- Norway, the greenest country on the planet, today produces 3.8 million barrels of oil equivalent every day! In 2030 he plans to make 4 million!
- Greece makes sense to wonder, while it has rich deposits and can exercise its sovereign rights through it???
See what else he said about the State that does not license environmentally important sites for exploitation of deposits in Greece!!!
