Russian Domination of Germany: Consequences of Peak Oil30 Oct

Germany is highly dependent upon Russia for crude oil imports, namely 40 percent. Germany also imported 14.1% of its oil from Norway and 10.7% from Great Britain. All together, Germany imports 93 percent of its oil from all sources.

Here is a graph of impressive Russian oil production:










In contrast, the graph below depicts Norwegian oil production approaching its sunset:










There is a similar plot for the UK.

Conclusion: Germany imports nearly 25 percent of its oil from two declining sources, namely the UK and Norway, in contrast to 40 percent from Russia, which shows increasing oil production and large volume. It is an irony of history that Germany imports 65 percent of its oil from three of its former WWII adversaries. Unless Germany can develop renewable energies on a huge, commercial, affordable scale, it will become subservient to Russia, a result that would have pleased Joseph Stalin.

Die Weltgeschichte ist auch die Summe dessen, was vermeidbar gewesen wäre. (The history of the world is also the sum of what might have been avoided). – Konrad Adenauer (1876-1967), West Germany’s first chancellor
