Trudeau Wants To Ship Germany “Green” Energy But Not Oil And Gas

Written By Wyatt Claypool, Posted on August 17, 2022

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently returned from a trip to Europe where he met with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz where the two discussed having Canada export more energy to Germany. 

Does this mean that Trudeau finally wants to build pipelines from Alberta to Eastern Canada to ship our ethical oil and gas products across the Atlantic….of course not.

Trudeau and Scholz are signing an agreement to ship supposedly “Green” energy to Germany using very new hydrogen energy cells, which are not currently a widely used form of energy containment. 

This would require Canada to set up wind farms in windy coastal Newfoundland, and then convert that energy into power stations that then use the energy to create hydrogen and ammonia to be used as energy.

Of course, this process would require a lot of energy and materials to be wasted just to contain amounts of energy far less superior to liquified natural gas and oil which can be much more easily used and transported. 

It would be an understatement to say that this new Green-Hydrogen energy is barely out of the experimental phase, and despite Europe needing new sources of energy to move away from dependence on Russia, for some reason Trudeau and Scholz are pursuing extremely long-term and costly energy ventures.

The proposal between Canada and Germany reads:

The development of large-scale green hydrogen production facilities is just starting, providing (Newfoundland and Labrador) and Canada with the opportunity and advantages of being a first mover in the green energy sector.

(Newfoundland and Labrador’s unique geography, strong wind resource and proximity to large centres of demand, will make it a globally competitive green hydrogen-producing region.

The biggest lie in this proposal is that the green energy industry is somehow “competitive” in any way. 

Everywhere green energy is a significant portion of all energy used, it is either heavily subsidized or partly mandated, like in Ontario where energy prices remain high in large part due to the forced use of wind energy in the grid. 

No doubt this new “green” energy initiative will become yet another boondoggle propped up with heavy government funding and yet will still be viewed by the Liberals and legacy media as some sort of “win” for Canada and the environment.
