Why would Europe "freeze" in the winter if Iran stops the exports of oil?
Seems that many people don't realize that Europe have #LOADS of coal.Yes, its more expensive, and yes, it is more poluted.We have almost all our coal
mines closed BUT they can be opened in days.
The only thing that might happended is a small increase of oil price, maybe 5%.
I know that if Romania decides to reopen the coal mines it will have almost overnight 200,000 people reemployed.
I know that if Poland decides the same, they have over 400,000 people reemployed in mining sector.
Talk about creating jobs? Ty Iran , pls stop the oil exports to EU.
Also, Romania have, what most don't know, enough OIL in our soil that can easily replace iranian quota.And our oil is waaaaay much better in
quality.We have 600 million barrels that can be exploited with current tech, UK have 3.1 billion and Denmark 1.1 billion.
I think EU can handle this small issue.
