Because leftist policy sounds neato but is disastrous in practice.
Green policies create suffering for the masses. No way around it. The question is how much it will even help.
I call BS on Saagar’s negative right-wing take! Come on Crystal, please provide some counterbalance!
For godsake kids, making changes are always hard! What you want? Keep killing the planet?!?
I’m glad to see that Europe is learning important lessons from Brexit.
Eat more broccoli 🥦
These takes are so fucking stupid to the point of feeling very uhhhhh influenced. Saagar is such a putz.
the leftists lost the crown jewels, , all the leftists always wanted the united states to follow the example of Sweden, as socialist Sweden was super too cool, looks that the socialist paradise wasn't one , and now Italy is following Sweden,
Saagar will look down his nose at Europe then give give a (supposed) in depth analysis of it lol
I live in Spain my electric bill is 4 times then it was this time last year. Green energy is good but you need a good backup. Not rely on another country for your power source.
HOW DARE YOU!!!!!!!!
Gotta keep fossil fuel and corporations fat with cash while the planet dies (which means we die horribly).
CIA funded show
You guys really used a thumbnail with a map of Ukraine still imcluded the old borders? Wow thats so much shameless propaganda
I still feel you two are failing to talk about Hydrogen and Fuel Cells. Government, big oil and big gas are investing heavily into this burgeoning trillion dollar industry. Not only is it a potential for energy independence but it’s an opportunity for conventional fueling that produces zero emissions
all that push for wind, solar and anti nuclear power was a slow game by the russians or chinese.
I'm European, lived in France, Iceland and now Ireland, have a wife who's Germans and English. The European Union is the best thing that happened to Europe, we have no wars between member countries, you can go love anywhere and get the same social rights allowed to citizens in this countries. There is no revolt happening against the system other than the Brits having left a few years ago now but they were never commited in the first place so it's no surprise. Energy wise the issue isn't about renewable the issue is that countries have individually decided to be dependant on the US and Russia. But electricity wise in Ireland we have more and more of our energy from sustainable means, France has 80 percent from nuclear, Iceland (not EU but Schengen) 100 percent from renewable etc… UK and fracking is because the people don't want fracking because their not crazy!! You guys have a country that doesn't care about its own ppl and that doesn't know anything outside your own culture… Americans view of the world is just that an American centered view of the world…. Proven by your statement on Italy, she is pro Europe they all are, just not pro European immigration (from outside EU) policy, but that's just one policy
As an European its no so much fiscal policy emanating from Brussels, its the complete and utter denial of any sovereignty and individual identity. The leadership of V D Lynn is atrocious .Policy is all over the place, our Taxes are used to fund close/open power plants. We don't know one week from other where our energy is coming from. Price inflation has gone thru roof. It seems as a Tax payer, I'm funding mass immigration and told its great for me, hospitals waiting lists, schools full, housing crisis for EU citizens, our passports handed out like candy. I'm told to keep quiet or Il be labeled a racist (which I'm not).Winter is coming in more ways than one..
Hope Krystal realises Biden and his crazy policies have been the key catalyst to all these bad outcomes affecting us globally
Please stick to domestic issues. You really should not report on global issues when you dont even know the names of leaders and institutions. Its a bad look and not informative.
Funny that these western nations don't hesitate to pontificate to poorer nations in Asia/Africa to reduce carbon emission, even at the cost of economic development, but when they're feeling the heat, they change their policy in minutes.
Few choices with the illusion of choice creates big profits as the customer thinks they are choosing.
I enjoy watching you two cover US politics, but your (especially Saagar’s) coverage of European news tends to be lackluster at best and rather embarrassing at worst. I would expect this type of shallow analysis and lack of nuance from a tabloid, but not a channel that claims to be revolutionizing news media as we know it. Either bother to do better research on the European topics you choose to present or leave it to those that do.
Duh… Why no people wanna starve and freeze to death? Duhhh.
Abandon nuclear abandon hope
This is way off base. The revolt is against the accepting of migrants, not on green energy.
People are waking up.
You are just crazy, nobody here is revolting against green energy. Europe is just too difficult to understand for Americans, so you should just quit talking about it.
A new mainstream 😂
Italy still has the Libyan pipeline connection. I'd say that puts them in a good spot. Stay with domestic policy saager
Prices going up is the result of poor leadership and policies. In a socialist society, like the US where politicians have hijacked economy, prices only benefit the rich and the ruling class. The AOC's, Pelosi's, and more are imposters to freedom, liberalism, and the human race. These people make the MAGA movement look liberal.
Carbon is life. Green is a lie.
thank you for tuning in to this segment of msnwannabe… these two just watch mainstream media and give you their opinion on it & then try to call themselves "independent journalists".
Michigan's entire wind infrastructure consists of about 1500 turbines.
If these 1500 turbines were all running at once and running at 100% capacity, Michigan's wind turbines output 1/5th the energy the clean coal fired power plant in Monroe Michigan puts out. This is the plant the feds want to close down.
Mathematics has come to a consensus, wind energy is not ready to power much of anything yet.
Saagar and Krystal are clueless when it comes to European politics. This is getting ridiculous!
I could’ve told you this March 2020. east and west are going to completely separate and as such the green agenda is dead, because you can’t go to war on back of green energy
Well that headline was kind of misleading both regarding the content in the video and what's happening in Europe. I don't see a revolt against green energy here, but there is a desperation to get any kind of energy.
Why don't they go after the corporations??
Chicken Little is well and alive through these environmental nuts
Let them eat cake …..
Let them use solar ….
If you guys consider yourselves true Leftists, then you should be against the Green Policies too. They will destroy the poor and working class. If you want to save the environment, invest and not hurt the poor, promote NUCLEAR.
Love the show, hate the hyperbolic click bait titles
Noticed a lot of Europeans watch a American news media outlets. Europeans don’t have their own news media outlets?
HOW DARE YOU!!!😡😡
F*ck the ruling class, oligarchs and elites.
Time for some heads to start coming off !!!!!
