“The German government decided last week to temporarily halt the phasing-out of two nuclear power plants. This is an attempt to secure Germany’s energy supplies after Russia effectively turned off its gas exports to Germany. But there is much more the German government could do if it was serious about shoring up its energy security. It could, for example, overturn its 2017 ban on fracking. As a 2016 government report shows, Germany sits on shale-gas deposits of more than two trillion cubic metres — 20 times its annual gas consumption. … Yet Germany’s political leaders seem to be putting their commitment to green orthodoxy above all else — including the need to tackle the multiple crises Germany now faces.” (09/14/22)
