Many European governments have, like ours, been pursuing a policy of renewable energy in recent decades. The landscape has changed in rural areas where large windmills are a worrying element. Russia invades Ukraine, and now we all fear for our gas supplies, which are absolutely essential to half of Europe. The old promise that renewable energy would eliminate our dependence on fossil fuels seems hollow. The truth is that 80% of world's energy comes from fossil fuels.
Transgenics is another example of a fallacy. Since 2000, environmental groups and green parties have warned us about alleged dangers that never occurred because they are false. Despite their warnings, transgenic crops were becoming more popular every year. New applications were also being developed in medicine and industry. The Spanish Government approved in full confinement a law that would allow transgenic plants to be researched and developed vaccines against covid. It's still funny that this law was approved while the party to which Juantxo Lopez De Uralde, the historical leader of Greenpeace, was a part of the government. Enrique IV said Paris is worth a mass and Lopez de Uralde must say that the seat of deputy in Paris is worth a transgenic.
It is clear that environmental groups and green parties have stopped discussing this issue in recent decades and have taken it off their agenda. It is a paradox that former Soviet bloc countries led by Russia were anti-GMO so Ukraine was our main source of non-GMO wheat and corn. Europe is considering lifting restrictions to allow more transgenic grain to enter to compensate for Ukraine's shortage. We see that the harsh reality has forced the environmental message, which was supported by many politicians, to come face-to-face with its harsh reality. Green messages are not the answer to hunger and cold.
