Aisha North – A Short Update On The Energies – 24 May 2014

AishaNorthLet us begin this missive by saying that these alternating currents you are currently being exposed to may cause many of you to falter at the moment. That is only natural, for in this phase of the proceedings, you are not only being reconnected to much of the underlying structures that constitutes your real base, you are also being disconnected from earlier, more temporary measures. And so, you will in many instances be left feeling as if untethered from it all, hanging in a void, or suspended in such a way you will have a hard time finding your bearings.

Germany now consumes 40 billion cubic meters of Russian gas annually, and China will start buying even more if the western route is agreed on, Putin said.

“The next step [in Russia-China gas cooperation] is a possibility to make a similar deal on a so-called western route,” President said commenting on a Russia-China megadeal signed Wednesday in Shanghai.
