🧵🚨 Gazprom 🇷🇺rejects Naftogaz 🇺🇦 demand for arbitration due to "unfriendly" arbitration environment in Switzerland 🇨🇭. This means we might be looking at ZERO #Russia gas to Europe this winter. 1/x
3 #NordStream pipes are severely damaged due to this week's explosions, technically 1 pipe of #NS2 could work, but not likely anytime soon. Hard to imagine #Germany 🇩🇪 will agree to use it. 2/x

We were already looking at no gas via #NordStream this winter, but adding a 2009 Russo-Ukraine gas dispute style event is cause for concern for some EU member states, like #Italy 🇮🇹 when they are in process of forming their next government. 3/x

1/ Your #energy is what they want.

How your #energy is fuelling their system of slavery.

🧶
2/ #Energy isn’t only about #infrastructure & facility engineering - weird statement coming from an engineer & @wef brainwashed MBA, right? Right.
3/ The human activity is all about #movement. The difference bt living & dead is the ability to #move. Movement = life. Don’t trust, verify - look at the remains of a 🐸 on the road next time & think for a moment. That’s how my dad explained this to me btw.

My take on #NordStream explosions 💥 3 total leaks, 2 on #NS1, 1 on #NS2. Neither CURRENTLY in use to ship gas due to breakdown in relations btwn #Russia & #Europe over #RussiaUkraineWar 1/8
#NordStream leaks are near #Bornholm, #Denmark. 12 nautical miles from international waters, 70 meters deep = dive-able 🤿 2/8
Very hard to imagine that this was an accident, deep sea pipeline leaks are pretty rare. It is likely sabotage. Could be divers, likely not a spy submarine for a variety of reasons #NordStream 3/8

JUST IN: Olaf Scholz (@OlafScholz), German Chancellor met Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President on Sunday, and signed an accord on energy cooperation and the country's hosting of next year's U.N. climate talks.
Scholz is on a two-day visit to the Gulf region focused mainly on securing new fossil fuel supplies and forging fresh alliances against Russia.
Germany is trying to wean itself off energy imports from Russia in response to the invasion of Ukraine, while avoiding an energy shortage in the coming months.

JUST IN: 100,000+ businesses in Italy are in danger of closing down due to soaring energy bills, as reported by Carlo Sangalli, head of the Italian business association Confcommercio.
Sangalli said, "Already many companies are reorganizing or reducing services… Between now and the first half of 2023, at least 120,000 small businesses in the service sector are at risk… This is a cautious estimate that does not take into account the largest companies".
Sangalli warned that, due to this situation, there could be a loss of over 370,000 jobs. Energy prices in Italy are much higher than in other countries, which puts a strain on small and medium-sized businesses.

(1/4) Ein Retweet (Tread-1&2) vom 05.09.22 zur Frage der eiskalt einkalkulierten #Kanibalisierung D's & der #EU durch die #USA in/d Folge des #Ukraine-Krieges: die Sache rechnet sich je länger der #Krieg dauert umso gewinnträchtiger f/d #Amerikaner, darüber besteht kein Zweifel:

#oilandgas is the reason for modern human flourishing.
We would not have been able to scale human society to support 7B+ without it
Fiat currencies also contributed to that, as did all modern commerce, trade and economics to this point.
Without those we would not exist as we do
That being said, there is a better alternative measured in human flourishing. Namely #Bitcoin. Decentralization of the money supply inherently requires decentralization of the energy supply, which means a decentralization of the food supply. This is proof of work enacted at scale
The malthusian mantra of eliminating Oil & Gas is not a solution. Pseudo-replacing it with "renewables" is a scam, these all require more input than they output over the lifetime of the tech. Decentralization of the energy supply means growth of #permaculture based bioenergy.

Looking forward to an insightful discussion on the impact of today's #MiniBudget on government's the #Environment, #NetZero and wider #ClimateChange policies #GAEvent
Beginning looking at the economic outlook, @SamAlvis2 warns that the £ has dropped in response to today's mini budget, and that we can expect a recession to be "looming" #GAEvent
On #Energy, Alvis says that a lack of OBR forecasts means we are not sure how much this will cost, but we we can be certain that there will be significant borrowing to help fund these support schemes #GAEvent

The #EthereumMerge made everyone an expert on the subject of the different consensus mechanisms.👑

But the discussion revolves more around proof of work (#PoS) and proof of stake (#PoW).🚀

Shining light on others like proof of burn (#PoB) and proof of activity (#PoA):⚡
A consensus mechanism is the set of rules under which the #blockchain operates.✨

These rules dictate who gets to mine new crypto and the conditions for it.💎

1. Proof of activity (#PoA):💸

Proof of activity is the hybrid of #PoW and #PoS.💰

This consensus mechanism is used by @EspersCoin and @decredproject.

In #PoA, the first step is mining the blockchain in a traditional PoW way.👇

My most unwavering professional commitment is to never let McKinsey touch anything I have the capacity to influence in Africa 😂

It breaks my heart how much damage & delayed progress McKinsey's work has caused for Africa's #Energy sector 💔
In South Africa, after overcharging Eskom for 'useless expertise' that left SA's power sector in a mess, they said "sorry"

theafricareport.com/193472/south-a…
In the Zuma years, McKinsey, Bain etc facilitated state capture and misuse of public funds affecting state institutions like South African Revenue Service (SARS), South African Airways (SAA), Transnet, Eskom, Denel etc

US consumer prices in August climbed 0.1% compared to the month before, despite falling #energy costs.
From a year earlier, US prices rose 8.3% -- that's not much of a slowdown as had been anticipated by economists. marketwatch.com/story/coming-u…

With #European energy prices at extreme levels, there are huge risks that could destabilise the whole social, economic, and political fabric of #Europe. 6 Things we need do:
1. Help Customers Save Energy
We need to help change customer behaviour and run pan #European marketing campaigns to explain the #energy challenge. I call this a “Save Energy to Save Europe,” campaign.
#Financial incentives should be introduced to encourage energy efficiency noting that small incremental changes in demand could quickly bring prices down for everyone.

Well... that requires a clarification. Lest people think the #German government hadn't spent two decades working on the country's demise.(/) @Halsrethink @ektrit @jeuasommenulle @nglinsman @Ed___________0 @petunianelsole @LorenaLuVi @andrepaltry @AlessandroPonz4 @eshow1969
"Competitive advantage" comes from "Competition", i.e. trying to be on average better or at least adequate in a game where may players are involved and where everyone sees everyone else. Think "bicycle race". (/)
But it is not enough to be adequate on a STATIC framework: there are ups and downs, hills and turns. So there is an element of foresight and tradeoffs needed. Time lags are also EXTREMELY important. Look up #OODA Loop for reference. (/)

Gestern Abend bei Markus #Lanz hat die taz Redakteurin Ulrike Hermann sehr selbstsicher Falschaussagen zum aktuellen Thema #Inflation verbreitet. Das ist ein sehr gefährliches Spiel. Hier “feiern” einige diese Aussagen schon (Freibier für Alle). Daher hier (leider) die Wahrheit😉

Some thoughts on the proposed #energy bill freeze... 🧵

Based on media reports, the idea is to cap the unit cost of energy by subsidising suppliers so that they do not have to pass on higher wholesale prices in full, either to households or to businesses… (1/10)

#energycrisis
On the plus side, this would lift the huge cloud of uncertainty which is now hanging over the whole economy. The peak in #inflation would also be much lower.

With this plan in place, the new government can score a big 'win' and quickly move on to other priorities... (2/10)
But this is another huge intervention which will distort markets even further, mainly help higher users of energy, and could be very expensive.

Consumers will still have some incentive to reduce bills by using less energy, but much less than if prices were free to adjust. (3/10)

Disturbing trend becomes 'staggeringly common' in Putin's wartime #Russia: @npwcnn reports on the death of #Lukoil Chair Ravil #Maganov—at least the 6th high-profile Russian #energy/#oil executives who Russia says died by suicide cnn.com/videos/world/2…
@npwcnn Lukoil head Ravil Maganov, seen being honored by Putin, died on Thursday after falling from his Moscow hospital window. Suicide, #Russia reported. The energy giant said he died after a severe illness. Lukoil under his leadership came out against the war in Ukraine early in March.
@npwcnn Lukoil's Maganov's death makes him the 6th prominent Russian #oil/gas executive to die from "suicide" in almost as many months.

4 dead execs from Russian state #gas giant Gazprom, currently at the forefront of #Russia's #energy battles with the West since invading #Ukraine.

I did a tour of the small business units on my estate this pm, & held a TRA

10 of 27 are closing next month as their bills have all increased by 400% to 700%

50 jobs lost

11 have contracts to next April, & the other 6 for 18 months

corner shop cafe closing too, 11 staff going
#EnoughlsEnough #energy #EnergyCrisis

is anyone else in my circle able to check with mixed use housing estates in their area, on how their small business units are doing please?

I *honestly* do feel as though I'm the only account here highlighting these issues

Today’s #JobsReport revealed an #economy that is producing #jobs at a slower pace than it has over the prior several months.
That said, a historic number of jobs have been created in this recovery since the fall of 2020, so a slowing in the pace of #growth isn’t unexpected.
Even with today’s somewhat slower rate of #hiring at 315,000 jobs for the month of August, the 3-month and 6-month average of #payroll gains has been 378,000 and 381,000 jobs, respectively, which is clearly indicative of slowing today from a point of strength.

Good chart to study: cost per MWh of #energy. Grey and orange balls are wind and solar; dark grey is gas; black is coal. Economic advantage of #renewables in most countries is stunning. Image

"figure 1.7 [shows] how large the benefit is by looking at the weighted average country #LCOE for #solar #PV and #windpower deployed in 2021 compared to what we thought the marginal generation cost would be for fossil fuels in 2022.
Put simply, renewables received their biggest yearly improvement in competitiveness in history in 2022.... the bulk of the boost coming from the eye-wateringly high fossil fuel prices we're dealing with in 2022.
