DECRYPTION – France and Europe are suffering from a surge in electricity prices due to an explosion in gas prices and a strong economic recovery.

40 years ago we had everything with nuclear power, the bills were very low for individuals and companies, today we are paying a fortune for renewables and the gas that is included in the nuclear bill area. we had 20% energy reserve in the 1980s, they sold everything to other countries, and we are threatened with black out and we are forced to export. Is it normal for those elected? who have been doing anything since the 2000s in the field of energy, ah if they know how to create taxes on taxes on taxes.
