Between Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Norway there is a huge industrial base for offshore work. Major oil fields in the North Sea, off Norway, and huge numbers of offshore windmills. I’d bet a lot of money that as soon as news broke of the damage to the pipelines companies started planning for repairs. It takes time to get material and equipment together, but when moneys no object (which in the face of the coming winter it shouldn’t be) it can be done. A far more crippling blow would be to destroy control and pumping systems. Pipe is comparatively east to roll, lay, and weld.

Michael Yon predicts catastrophe for Europe stemming from the sabatoge. Any truth to that idea will be found in how long it takes Germany to get the lines operational again. If the ball is rolling, there is hope. If they drag their feet or submit to US/NATO pressure to not repair the pipelines then it’s over.

If you have a small plot of land with some trees... are you still allowed to cut them down and fire up the old wood stove? (I know in Australia you're not allowed)

If you can then just buy your own forest.

Australia has become incredibly oppressive, to ban the use of firewood in a country where trees grow like weeds, the land is huge (even accounting for the deserts) and population small is plain nuts.

Firewood is fine and plentiful in the countryside, esp, in countries with large forest area and relatively small populations like Romania, Finland, Sweden etc, but the people in big cities like Paris, London Hamburg etc don't have wood stoves in their flats.

New houses in Europe that are outside of cities often feature efficient fireplaces that store and distribute heat in their stone, brick or metal encasements (whereas traditional chimneys don't work well and only heat the room they-re in, because the rising hot air draws in cold outside air that gets through the tiny gaps all around the house.)

Well, the US navy is corpse-camping in the area, so if the pipeline is repaired it will just be blown up again.

Germany has few natural resources, so most goods + energy need to be imported and turned into products sold with a profit.
So Germany is heavily relying on international supply chains.

Plan to destroy the German industry and prevent the country from regaining sovereignty and disable EU as a competitor.
1) Lay havoc in the middle east
2) Instruct NGOs for refugees to invade Europe (especially Germany), increased labor cost through social welfare system
3) (COVID) disrupt international supply chains for manufactured goods
4) Use Russian-Ukrainin war to seperate energy supply / colloboration between west and east europe
5) Enforce disruption

The RAND Plan
US strategy paper: Germany must not buy Russian gas

According to a leaked report, the state-affiliated U.S. think tank "RAND Corporation" is said to have planned as early as January to pressure Russia into attacking Ukraine via an aggressive EU foreign policy. It also anticipated the energy crisis.

The document, reported by the Swedish newspaper Nya Dagbladet, has it all. The RAND Corporation, which was already involved in U.S. propaganda during the Korean War as well as the Cold War, sees an emerging Europe as a competitor to the U.S. - on an economic and political level. The only way to prevent that, it said, was to plunge Europe into chaos by adopting a sanctions package that would plunge the European - and especially the German - economy into a systemic crisis. The Green parties were thought to play a central role because their strongly dogmatic orientation made them easily ignore economic arguments.

Literally, the U.S. strategy paper states:

Stopping Russian deliveries could create a systematic crisis that would be devastating for the German economy and indirectly for the European Union as a whole”, it states, and believes that the key is to draw the European countries into war.

The only possible way to ensure that Germany rejects Russian energy supplies is to draw both sides into the military conflict in Ukraine. Our continued actions in this country will inevitably lead to a military response from Russia. Russia is clearly not going to leave to the massive Ukrainian army’s pressure on the Donetsk People’s Republic without a military response. This would make it possible to portray Russia as the aggressive party and then implement the entire package of sanctions, which has already been drawn up”.


USA as the main beneficiary

The damage to German-Russian relations is said to be so great that the two countries cannot return to a reasonable level of talks. The RAND plan explains in minute detail how failing energy supplies will lead to total collapse in the EU. The U.S. could benefit by as much as $9 trillion by having U.S. companies face less competition in the world market. The RAND Corporation moved out the day after the revelation, denying being the author of the document & calling it "bizarre" without elaborating on its content.

Edit - Posted before I read Bird's excellent post just above. At some point, Europe will have to deal with the fact that the US is at an undeclared war against it.

Europe’s Energy Armageddon from Berlin and Brussels, Not Moscow

F. William Engdahl, September 1, 2022

On August 22 the exchange-traded market price for natural gas in the German THE (Trading Hub Europe) gas hub was trading more than 1000% higher than a year ago. Most citizens are told by the Scholz regime that the reason is Putin and Russia’s war in Ukraine. The truth is quite otherwise. EU politicians and major financial interests are using Russia to cover what is a Made in Germany and Brussels energy crisis. The consequences are not accidental.

It is not because politicians like Scholz or German Green Economy Minister Robert Habeck, nor EU Commission Green Energy Vice President Frans Timmermans are stupid or clueless. Corrupt and dishonest, maybe yes. They know exactly what they are doing. They are reading a script. It is all part of the EU plan to deindustrialize one of the most energy-efficient industrial concentrations on the planet. This is the UN Green Agenda 2030 otherwise known as Klaus Schwab’s Great Reset.

EU Gas Market Deregulated

What the EU Commission and government ministers in Germany and across the EU are carefully hiding is the transformation they have created in how the natural gas price is determined today. For almost two decades the EU Commission, backed by the mega banks such as JP MorganChase or large speculative hedge funds, began to lay the basis for what is today a complete deregulation of the market for natural gas. It was promoted as the “liberalization” of the European Union’s natural gas market. What it now allows is for unregulated real-time free market trading to fix prices rather than long-term contracts.

Beginning around 2010 the EU began to push a radical change in rules for pricing natural gas. Prior to that point most gas prices were set in fixed long-term contracts for pipeline delivery. The largest supplier, Russia’s Gazprom, provided gas to the EU, most especially to Germany, in long-term contracts pegged to the price of oil. Until the last several years almost no gas was imported by LNG ships. With a change in US laws to allow export of LNG from the huge shale gas production in 2016 US gas producers began a major expansion of LNG export terminal construction. The terminals take an average of 3 to 5 years to build. At the same time Poland, Holland and other EU countries began to build LNG import terminals to receive the LNG from abroad.

Emerging from World War II as the world leading oil supplier, the Anglo-American oil giants, then called the Seven Sisters, created a global oil price monopoly. As Henry Kissinger noted during the oil shocks of the 1970s, “Control the oil and you control entire nations.” Since the 1980s Wall Street banks, led by Goldman Sachs, created a new market in “paper oil,” or futures and derivative trading of future oil barrels. It created a huge casino of speculative profits that was controlled by a handful of giant banks in New York and the City of London.

Those same powerful financial interests have been working for years to create a similar globalized “paper gas” market in futures they could control. The EU Commission and their Green Deal agenda to “decarbonize” the economy by 2050, eliminating oil, gas and coal fuels, provided the ideal trap that has led to the explosive spike in EU gas prices since 2021. To create that “single” market control, the EU was lobbied by the globalist interests to impose draconian and de facto illegal rule changes on Gazprom to force the Russian owner of various gas distribution pipeline networks in the EU to open them to competitor gas.

The big banks and energy interests that control EU policy in Brussels had created a new independent price system parallel to the long-term, stable prices of Russian pipeline gas which they did not control.

By 2019 the series of bureaucratic energy directives of the Brussels EU Commission allowed fully deregulated gas market trading to de facto set the prices for natural gas in the EU, despite the fact that Russia was still by far the largest gas import source. A series of virtual trading “hubs” had been established to trade gas futures contracts in several EU countries. By 2020 the Dutch TTF (Title Transfer Facility) was the dominant trading center for EU gas, the so-called EU gas benchmark. Notably, TTF is a virtual platform of trades in futures gas contracts between in trades between banks and other financial investors, “Over-The-Counter.” That means it is de facto unregulated, outside any regulated exchange. This is critical to understand the game being run in the EU today.

In 2021 only 20% of all natural gas imports to the EU were LNG gas, whose prices were largely determined by futures trades in the TTF hub, the EU de facto gas benchmark, owned by the Dutch Government, the same government destroying its farms for a fraudulent nitrogen pollution claim. The largest import share of European gas came from Russia’s Gazprom supplying more than 40% of EU imports in 2021. That gas was via long term pipeline contracts whose price was vastly lower than today’s TTF speculation price. In 2021 EU states paid an estimated penalty cost around $30 billion more for natural gas in 2021 than if they had stuck with Gazprom oil-indexation pricing. The banks loved it. US industry and consumers not. Only by destroying the Russian gas market in the EU could financial interests and the Green Deal advocates create their LNG market control.

Closing EU Pipeline Gas

With full EU backing for the new gas wholesale market, Brussels, Germany and NATO began systematically to close stable, long-term pipeline gas to the EU.

After she broke diplomatic ties with Morocco in August, 2021 over disputed territories, Algeria announced the Maghreb-Europe (MGE) gas pipeline, which was launched in 1996, would cease operation on October 31, 2021, when the relevant agreement expired.

In September 2021 Gazprom completed its multibillion dollar undersea Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia across the Baltic Sea to northern Germany. It would double the capacity of Nord Stream 1 to 110 billion cubic meters annually, allowing Gazprom to be independent of interference with gas deliveries via its Soyuz pipeline going through Ukraine. The EU Commission, backed by the Biden Administration, blocked opening of the pipeline with bureaucratic sabotage, and finally German Chancellor Scholz imposed sanction on the pipeline on February 22 over Russian recognition of Donetsk People’s Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. With the growing gas crisis since, the German government has refused to open Nord Stream 2 despite the fact it is finished.

Then on May 12, 2022 although Gazprom deliveries to the Soyuz gas pipeline through Ukraine were uninterrupted for almost three months of conflict, despite Russia’s military operations in Ukraine, the NATO-controlled Zelenskyy regime in Kiev closed a major Russian pipeline through Lugansk, that was binging Russian gas both to his Ukraine as well as EU states, declaring it would remain closed until Kiev gets full control of its pipeline system that runs through the two Donbass republics. That section of the Ukraine Soyuz line cut one-third of gas via Soyuz to the EU. It certainly did not help the EU economy at a time Kiev was begging for more weapons from those same NATO countries. Soyuz opened in 1980 under the Soviet Union bringing gas from the Orenburg gas field.

Next came the Jamal Russian gas pipeline through Belarus and through Poland to Germany. In December 2021, two months before the Ukraine conflict, the Polish government closed the Polish part of the pipeline cutting Gazprom gas delivery at low prices to Germany as well as Poland. Instead Polish gas companies bought Russian gas in the storage of German gas companies, via the Polish-German section of the Jamal pipeline at a higher price in a reverse flow. The German gas companies got their Russian gas via long-term contract for a very low contract price and resold to Poland at a huge profit. This insanity was deliberately downplayed by the Green Economics Minister Habeck and Chancellor Scholz and German media, even though it forced German gas prices even higher and worsened the German gas crisis. The Polish government refused to renew its gas contract with Russia, and instead buys gas on the free market for vastly higher prices. As a result no more Russian gas to Germany via Jamal is flowing.

Finally gas delivery via Nord Stream 1 undersea pipeline has been interrupted because of needed repair of a Siemens-made gas turbine. The turbine was sent to a special facility of Siemens in Canada where the anti-Russian Trudeau regime held it for months before finally releasing it on request of German government. Yet they deliberately refused to grant the delivery to its Russian owner, but instead to Siemens Germany, where it sits, as the German and Canadian governments refuse to grant a legally binding sanctions exemption for the transfer to Russia. By this means Gazprom gas through Nord Stream 1 is also dramatically reduced to 20% of normal.

In January, 2020 Gazprom began sending gas from its TurkStream pipeline through Turkey and on to Bulgaria and Hungary. In March 2022 Bulgaria unilaterally, with NATO backing, cut its gas supplies from TurkStream. Hungary’s Viktor Orban, by contrast, secured continuation with Russia of TurkStream gas. As a result today Hungary has no energy crisis and imports Russian pipeline gas at contract very low fixed prices.

By systematically sanctioning or closing gas deliveries from long-term, low cost pipelines to the EU, gas speculators via the Dutch TTP have been able to use every hiccup or energy shock in the world, whether a record drought in China or the conflict in Ukraine, to export restrictions in the USA, to bid the EU wholesale gas prices through all bounds. As of mid-August the futures price at TTP was 1,000% higher than a year ago and rising daily.

German Highest Price Madness

The deliberate energy and electricity price sabotage gets even more absurd. On August 28, German Finance Minister Christian Lindner, the sole cabinet member from the Liberal Party (FDP), revealed that under the opaque terms of the complex EU Electricity Market Reform measures, the producers of electricity from solar or wind automatically receive the same price for their “renewable” electricity they sell to the power companies for the grid as the highest cost, i.e. natural gas!

Lindner called for an “urgent” change to the German energy law to decouple different markets. The fanatical Green Economics Minister Robert Habeck immediately replied that, “We are working hard to find a new market model,” but cautioning that the government must be mindful not to intervene too much: “We need functioning markets and, at the same time, we need to set the right rules so that positions in the market are not abused.”

Habeck in fact is doing all possible to build the Green Agenda and eliminate gas and oil and nuclear, the only reliable energy sources at present. He refuses to consider re-opening three nuclear plants closed a year ago or to reconsider closing the remaining three in December. While declaring in a Bloomberg interview that, ”I will not approach this question ideologically,” in the next breath he declared, “Nuclear power is not the solution, it is the problem.” Habeck as well as the EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen have repeatedly declared more investment in unreliable wind and solar is the answer to a gas price crisis that their policies have deliberately created. In every respect the suicidal energy crisis ongoing in Europe has been “Made in Germany,” not in Russia.

The pipeline storage was even bigger than I thought. Now official estimates hold it will take until Sunday (3 more days away) before all the gas is finally released from the pipeline. The pipeline was holding millions of pounds of cubic gas. Not sure how Germany is going to survive this.
It's not quite winter, so it's feasible for repairs to be completed by end of the October.

USA destroyed supply lines in the Baltic Sea

A point of view

Denmark reports two large explosions in the sea. A pressure drop is reported from Lubmin. At sea, gigantic eddies form on the water surface. Raw materials worth two billion euros pour en masse into the Baltic Sea near Bornholm. The supply lines on the seabed have sprung a leak, they say. Then it turns out: it's an attack: on Monday, the USA destroyed the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 supply pipelines with explosive devices.

Already on February 22, 2022, US President Joseph Biden, who was inaugurated under dubious circumstances, had announced it: Washington's "Deep State" will sabotage the supply pipelines in the Baltic Sea. (1) For September 2, 2022, Russian news agencies had already reported a maneuver with US military helicopters over the Baltic Sea, in which underwater drones with explosive devices also played a role.

Now on September 26, 2022, the time had come. U.S. special torpedoes destroyed the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 supply pipelines in the Baltic Sea near the Danish vacation island of Bornholm in the afternoon and night of Monday to Tuesday. Masses of natural gas have been flowing into the sea from the leaks ever since, forming very large eddies on the water surface.

The cost of the escaping raw materials is already estimated at two billion euros the day after. The environmental damage is completely incalculable. (3a) At the moment, the unprocessed natural gas continues to flow into the sea not far from the Danish Baltic coast. It is unclear how the leakage of natural gas into the sea will be stopped. Natural gas cannot be shut off like electricity.

Act of war against Europe

The U.S. attack on the supply pipelines must be evaluated as an openly belligerent act against Europe. There is no other possibility, even if the pipelines were last turned off in the German coast due to pressure from Washington. The Nord Stream 1 supply pipeline ran from the Russian city of Vyborg through the Baltic Sea to Lubmin near Greifswald in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Nord Stream 2 also ran from Ust-Luga to Lubmin.

For the time being, the pipelines must be considered completely destroyed. It is currently unlikely that the pipelines can be repaired or rerouted before the coming winter under water. Thus, freezing at home in Europe and destroying German indsustry is clearly identifiable as a Washington program. Fittingly, by the way, a new natural gas project was announced shortly before the attack in the Ostee on Monday. The pipelines of the "Baltic Pipe" are to be laid on circuitous routes from Norway to Poland. The date of commissioning is completely unclear.

For years, American oligarchs of the "Deep State" have been bothered by the natural gas pipelines. Already under U.S. President Donald Trump, mainland Europe's trade relationship with Russia has been the subject of massive criticism. The U.S. is considered de facto bankrupt. For decades, the American economy, state and consumers had been in debt, especially to China, and had piled up gigantic trade deficits, so that there was already talk of a "Chimerica," a merging of the U.S. with China's economy through the former's uncatchable debt to the latter.

Trump most recently tried to regain the U.S.'s completely lost competitiveness through trade restrictions and bringing back the industries that had migrated. An almost impossible undertaking that finally ended with the proclamation of the Corona regime in the wake of the collapse of the repo markets, the de facto bursting of the largest U.S. financial bubble in world history, and a very likely election fraud by the "Deep State" and the inauguration of Joseph Biden on January 6, 2021. The Washington regime wants and needs to sell its dirty fracked gas at very high prices to delay bankruptcy. The lever for this, as in all colonial and plunder wars, is the military.

The declaration of war on the world community by Washington's mafia-like to neo-fascist "Deep State" of oligarchs, propaganda agencies and intelligence services with irregular combatants has now revealed itself a second time in comparatively short succession. Already from March 2020, the reign of terror showed itself in all its cruelty with the deployment of the Corona Lie as a new means of oppression and colonial plunder against the countries of the world occupied by the U.S. de jure or de facto. Among them the completely humiliated Germany and almost all other NATO countries as formerly belittlingly called "Allies" as well as the individuals living in them - formerly called: Peoples.

The crash of the unbacked U.S. currency plus the biggest realization crisis since 1929 was overlaid with the biggest lie in world history. With the Corona regime, societies were virtually levelled and new totalitarian methods of oppression and surveillance were established. At no time was environmental protection or even health protection in the true sense of the word the issue. From the beginning, the slogan "Stay healthy" was the murmur of an aged but no less unscrupulous mafia godfather.

Capitalism's insolvency trickery

With the biggest financial trick in world history, the U.S. debt and other imbalances piled up by Washington and its depandances in London and NATO headquarters Brussels are to be absorbed with the introduction of a digital currency and the de facto "chipping" of the world's population - disguised as "vaccination." Some of the substances are highly toxic, as DW editor, educational professional and graduate biologist Markus Fiedler will explain with new facts in the upcoming 106th issue of the weekly newspaper Democratic Resistance (DW).

Back to the Baltic Sea: Monday's blast of the supply lines followed, with the time gap of a few hours, the naturalization of the globally recognized US whistleblower Edward Snowden. Snowden, a U.S. citizen, had already exposed totalitarian U.S. surveillance methods as well as war crimes and war plans nine years ago. The CIA employee found asylum only in Russia on his flight from the US and NATO repressive apparatus. In the U.S., he would face the death penalty. In 2016, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Under Russian law, Snowden's naturalization prevents his extradition to the US. Following Edward Snowden's naturalization to Russia on Monday, a U.S. State Department spokesman immediately stated that he still considers the world-renowned whistleblower, who is recognized outside the U.S. ruling apparatus, to be a U.S. citizen. Long before, U.S. entities had declared Snowden's U.S. citizenship revoked, which, however, contradicts human rights and other valid international legal norms. Accordingly, people may not be rendered stateless.

"Our position has not changed: Mr. Snowden must return to the United States to stand trial, just like any other U.S. citizen," said State Department spokesman Ned Price.

Furthermore, referendums in the Kiev breakaway regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia ended on Monday, September 26, 2022. With reported turnouts of around 90 percent and election results of around 80 percent to 98 percent, the regions' accession to the Russian Federation has thus been decided. The Duma, the Russian parliament, could decide on the formal annexation of the regions to Russia as early as today, Wednesday.

The events at the beginning of the week have given the situation a further boost. Further escalations are on the horizon. All people capable of thinking and acting from politics, churches, journalism, state apparatus and civil society can only be called upon to do everything in their power to force the central conflict parties Washington and Moscow to a ceasefire and negotiations. The beautiful calm Baltic Sea, which is sung about in many languages, in the alternation of low and high tide so pleasantly mild, is now unfortunately also in the focus of the world conflagration with the attack on the supply lines at the bottom of the sea. September 26, 2022, with the events reported, is a date that will go down in history. Unfortunately not in good.

No, it isn't.
A submarine pipeline is not a submarine cable and I'm afraid it won't be repairable this year, which was the intent of this attack.

I was under the impression that it had to be repaired fast, otherwise the seawater will corrode the tubes/components so they're beyond rescue? So then you would need to lay need pipes all together. I'm willing to bet it will never be fixed as the situation stands now! It might be BS about the corrosion, but if they destroyed it on purpose they're not gonna let anyone repair it anytime soon.

I don't know if the demand from Germany after losing about 58 percent of their gas supply can be met by north sea gas. Probably their looking at gas rationing this winter. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/orde...-gas-crisis-will-cause-jitters-across-europe/

Our problem is called USA

It is true that it is not yet 100 percent certain that the USA is behind the sabotage of the two Baltic Sea pipelines. But the circumstantial evidence and the interests at stake speak for it. Jens Berger has already explained this conclusively two days ago: The attacks on Nord Stream and the elephant in the room. Now this appeared in the US: Tucker Carlson: Biden admin 'may have blown up' gas pipelines in Baltic Sea. Do we actually realize what that would mean? Our main ally, whom most Germans and the official Germany in politics and media consider a friend, destroys the transport route for our most important energy supply and thus also an important basis of industrial activity in our country. And this out of transparent self-interest!

To sustainably weaken an industrial competitor in Europe. To pull industrial companies out of Germany and into the USA! To document that the USA claims to be the only world power.

We should realize what this means. It is the brutal termination of a friendship. In any case, the indication of it. And only ignoramuses or those who are in the service of the USA can ignore this signal.

German media act as if the USA had nothing to do with it. They insinuate that Russia was the perpetrator. Typical for this is what could be read this morning in the Handelsblatt Morning Briefing:

"The perpetrators of the gas leaks are still unknown, but much points to Moscow. Russian government work now looks like gang crime. Nils Schmid, foreign policy spokesman for the SPD parliamentary group, tells us:

Russia is now moving to hybrid warfare, which is a new dimension."


In order to imply that Russia was the perpetrator, a delightful trick was already used on Tuesday. It was reported by several media outlets that the CIA had warned of such attacks some time ago. If the American intelligence warns about such an attack, then it can't have been the USA, so the message goes. A great and primitive trick of manipulation.

We are deluded about our independence. The vast majority of politicians and media refuse to perceive that we are still a vassal of the USA. And when this is openly stated, many do not want to believe it.

When it became known that the German chancellor's cell phone had been tapped by U.S. intelligence services, there was a general shaking of heads. There was nothing to be heard about the German media or the German chancellor complaining about it in any clear way.

If you have any doubts about the U.S. obedience of the responsible politicians, you might want to note that our chancellor is silent about all this. He is silent on the infiltration of political and scientific institutions. He is silent on the grotesque event that the U.S. Secretary of Defense/War Minister invites to a conference on German soil, as if Ramstein were U.S. territory. Seen in the light of day, an unbelievable event. But not a peep from the Chancellor and the German government.

We are not free and our problem is the USA. They have also made sure that the communication with Russia is torpedoed. Millions of Germans will suffer as a result.

This article is published by Financial Times and I stopped reading here:

But Habeck is in a hurry, and has a strong pragmatic streak. (this is MSM blah blah)

He has no "pragmatic streak", he is just a corrupt idiot who should be hung from the nearest tree.
Recently he declared that he earns "super much money", because he only does what his whisperers tell him.

The article didn't refer to the pipeline repair part, that was German authorities. (I.e. "experts) I don't trust any MSM outlet, but the part about Nord stream providing about 58 percent of German gas up until now is probably correct. I feel quite confident in the prediction that there will be no interest in fixing Nord stream though!
