Under the multiple pressures of the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis, pioneering countries such as Germany that advocate global environmental protection plan to restart abandoned coal power projects. What impact might this have on efforts to curb climate change? In June 2022, the German government announced that it would significantly restart the increase in the use of highly polluting coal before winter to protect energy supplies, as cuts in Russian gas exports could cause severe energy shortages in Germany. Germany, Europe's largest economy, is not the only major Western European country to restart coal power: Italy, Austria, the Netherlands, and Denmark have all announced similar plans to restart coal power projects. They are also pioneer countries that once called for the abandonment of coal energy and advocated environmental protection. Why is such Banner Design a huge shift happening? What impact will this have on curbing global climate change? The Russian-Ukrainian War and the Coronavirus Since the second half of 2021, as the world begins to gradually recover from the COVID-19 (serious special infectious pneumonia, new crown pneumonia, Wuhan pneumonia) virus epidemic, countries have successively unblocked, all walks of life have resumed work and production, and energy demand has risen again. But the global energy supply is at a trough, which has led to sharp rises in energy prices across the board. As oil and natural gas prices skyrocketed, coal prices also rebounded from their troughs. Coal is the cheapest and most accessible resource in comparison. After the Russian-Ukrainian war began in February 2022, the West, led by the United States, began to impose sanctions on Russia's energy exports, and Russia took countermeasures. Russia is the world's third-largest oil producer, after the United States and Saudi Arabia. Before the sanctions were announced, Russia was exporting about 5 million barrels a day of crude, more than half of which went to Europe.
