Apparently the council members, who voted for the natural gas ban, don't have the guts to admit they have ever made a mistake?

Or from Cher in Moonstruck, “Snap out of it!”
The more we limit our resources the more we are able to be manipulated by China.
Vote Larry Elder.

Don't you just love how everyone jumps on the "save the planet" bandwagon without doing the research. I often tell my adult children my grandparents did not own a car in SF for years. They grew their own vegetables in their yard and hung their own clothes outside to dry. My grandma would walk around the corner to the neighborhood market. They lived a more "sustainable" and simple life than any of us ever will!
So let's get "real" here.

The "news" is apparently burying the actual news that OPEC told Biden to, um, forget it. They like the higher prices and if he wants to increase supply for this country, he has plenty of options available.........

From today's WSJ:

Soaring natural-gas prices in Britain have prompted U.S. fertilizer maker CF Industries Holdings Inc. to close two U.K. plants, in a sign that Europe’s energy crunch is affecting industry as the economy struggles with several other disruptions amid the recovery from the pandemic.

Businesses across Britain are complaining about high energy costs, with some steelmakers forced to halt production for periods during the day as the price of electricity rises almost seven times higher than at the same point last year. Power markets have also jumped in France, the Netherlands and Germany, ahead of anticipated higher demand in the winter.

Natural-gas prices in Europe have been boosted by a range of factors including the pandemic recovery, a lack of fuel in storage, strong demand in Asia and recent still weather conditions sapping wind power in the North Sea. European nations have turned away from thermal coal and nuclear power, leaving them with fewer alternatives to back up power sources. Almost 40% of European coal generation capacity has been retired since 2016, according to S&P Global Platts.
