Climate extremists threaten to cut vital gas pipelines

Climate crazies in Germany have threatened to start cutting oil and gas pipelines until the government acquiesces to the group’s green demands.

As many people across Europe struggle to cope with soaring energy costs following years of bad government policy and recently intensified by the Ukraine crisis, climate crazies in Britain Britain and Germany staged widespread protests, with British activists disrupting supplies. of petrol and diesel to the point of causing shortages in the south of the country.

Die-hard green activists in Germany now appear set to follow suit, threatening to start closing oil and gas pipelines in the central European country unless the government agrees to their demand not to invest in new ones. fossil fuel projects.

According to a report by Die Weltthe group issued the ultimatum after a long campaign to block roads in Berlin and Frankfurt, which had previously led to climate crazies being branded a “fanatic doomsday cult”.
