U.S. Dismisses Mediterranean Gas Pipeline Proposal
An eastern Mediterranean pipeline that would deliver Israeli gas to Europe was considered “not viable,” according to United States Under Secretary of State, Victoria Nuland. The hope is to wean Europe off of Russian energy, but Nuland says, “in 10 years we want to be far, far more green and far more diverse.”
Green technology is great and I’m excited for it, but we have a long, long way to go before it’s the only source of energy. Israel has resources to supply Europe with natural gas, but Nuland says “no” because it’s “not green.” Nuland is setting up a world that continues to make Europe dependent on Russia when they could be dependent on both Israel and the United States.
