Fox News - Tucker Carlson opening statement Aug 29, 22

Europe is descending into poverty, moving backward at high speed. Getting much poorer, much quickly.

A year ago most modern Europeans heated their homes with natural gas.
Last year in Germany, the richest, most modernized country in Europe, only 6% of households (mainly rural) heated their homes with wood.
This year, the demand for firewood in Germany has risen so fast and so dramatically that there is non left to buy. You can't get it...so desperate Germans are resorting to cutting their own wood, scouring the forests like their ancestors for sources of heat.

In Poland, Families are standing in line for days to buy coal. Cars lined up outside coal mines for fuel. People are having to sleep in their cars for days, waiting in line to get coal to heat their homes.

The French have announced energy rationing this winter. Up until very recently France had so much energy that it was a net exporter of energy. Now there won't be enough heat in France for everybody to stay warm this winter.

In the UK, 70% of restaurants are preparing to close...preparing to go out of business because when winter comes they won't be able to afford
to keep the heat and lights on.

This is happening across Europe, in every Country! Things are falling apart very quickly!

This is worth a watch...

If you haven't already folks, you need to start planning and prepping for what's to come this winter.

It won't be just fuel shortages but also food. If you have the means get yourself a chest freezer and stock it with meat. Don't be buying pre cooked foods like pizzas etc... learn to cook your own. Buy Flour, Rice and beans, sustainable foods with a long shelf life and store them in places away from heat and cold and where critters and insects can't get at them. Get a bread maker it's easy to make your own bread with simple ingredients Flour and yeast.

Get yourselves a pressure cooker, mason jars and learn how to can, for your fruits and vegetables. Go to your local farms / farmers markets and get those items to can, now. Stock up on items for your immune systems...vitamins C, D, zinc etc... and powdered drinks. If you are a coffee and tea drinker stock up on those now because there's going to be shortages with prices escalating for what is left.

If you have an opportunity, look for cheap heating sources. A wood burning stove, camp stoves, butane, propane, kerosene heaters and stock up on fuel to heat them...
Get yourselves torches/flashlights and plenty of batteries, tealights are cheap and can give you a light source and there are tricks you can use them for a heating source...check out YT videos on them.

Be prepared make sure your nearest and dearest are safe and have them prepare. It's going to get real BAD!

Something interesting I overlooked in Tuckers' video above:

This is from the UK Government taken from The Guardian newspaper

"Under the Government's latest reasonable worst case scenario, officials believe the UK could experience blackouts for several days in January if cold weather combines with gas shortages to leave the country short of power."

Invariably when they tell you a worst case scenario, months in advance, it is likely to change and get much worse than first advised.

Think how COVID came around and what world leaders initially were telling their people? and then what happened and is STILL happening!

BUCKLE UP FOLKS!
