Discussing Europe’s Energy Crisis This Winter

By Samantha Aschieris

Colder temperatures are just around the corner in Europe as many people there brace for an energy crisis this winter.

“Well, the latest is that temperatures are dropping in Europe, prices of electricity and other heating fuels have quadrupled, and it’s very difficult for people to afford these high prices,” says Diana Furchtgott-Roth, director of the Center for Energy, Climate, and Environment at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of Heritage.)

“We’ve had Benny Peiser, who’s head of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, come and speak at Heritage, and he told us that prices in Britain were four times what they had been in previous years,” Furchtgott-Roth says. “The government is putting a cap on these prices, so people are not feeling the full effect of the prices until April, but it’s very difficult for everybody.”

Furchtgott-Roth joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss more about the energy crisis in Europe, how the U.S. can avoid landing in a similar position, and how Europeans can conserve energy this winter.
