Dear Steven & Group:

The sad truth is that the energy will come to Germany in the form of Russian
natural gas controlled by Gasprom.  Three years ago, Gasprom turned-off the
gas to Europe on 1 January 2009 claiming that Ukraine was "stealing gas"
leaving it off for several weeks.  Since so much of Eastern Europe is very
dependent on Russia for energy, this single "statement" caused major
disruptions (and geopolitical changes) in Eastern and Central Europe
including Germany.  The price of gas spiked, and old company joint projects
were re-evaluated to include Russian companies.

This also happened in 2006 with Ukraine said to be stealing gas, and Belarus
in earlier "gas-stealing" events.  Gasprom always finds excuses to shut gas
off, and they appear to be a major arm of the Russian government's
heavy-handed foreign policy. 10% of Russian GDP comes from Gasprom.

	How will Germany replace the 22 percent of electricity it receives 
from reactors?
