The cold wave in Argentina has killed at least five people, forced the closure of highways and left most of industry short of gas given the soaring residential consumption. Read full article
The stupidity of the government is astounding. I am sure next they will start fining the bakeries for not having bread on the shelves even though they have no gas to bake! I also bet the Govt is requiring that the employees get paid even when the plants are shut down. Shadows of Hugo.
Did you know that Britain produces around 100 billion cubic metres of gas a year?
Wheesht Harrier, they'll be wanting to invade us next!!
Or maybe Annexe Rockall!!
Additionally, this huge demand for electricity could only be met by importing electricity from Brazil. Oh, the wonderful utilities of Argentina!
They could all get out and have a march. Good for the circulation.
Arg is having natural gas shortages in outlying provinces and cuts large cities like Mendoza and Cordoba. They have also restricted sales to everyone except private homes since so many taxis and private cars use nat gas they are seeing long lines at service stations. What a mess this place is.
Can you imaging not being able heat your homes when it is below zero? Idiots, the only outcome possible is raising the fuel prices to market level which will bring inflation and probably riots. Argentina buys nat gas for about $u8 and sells it for U$5 how long do you think they can keep this up? Not for very long is my guess.
Arg is heading for implosion. Do hope winter is only just starting.
