Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The figures just don't make the test Jerome. We will need every JULE of energy we can get our hands on in 2020, come from gas, oil, solar or other... and it's ALL gonna be more than welcome.

By arguing that the EU has bargaining power against Russia in the energy sphere requires that two conditions are met:

1. that the Russians can't sell their energy elsewhere - which is false because they're busy building pipelines going East to Asian markets;

2. that the EU can actually do without Russian energy supplies - which by my books isn't reality. Maybe you can contribute some data to the discussion? Cheers.
