Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Watching from USAmerica, I don't see any explicit public campaign in the EU for energy efficiency and energy conservation in the face of either the carbon war in Ukraine nor the resulting energy price increases.  Recently, I've come to understand that the public, on its own, has responded this way but supply chain and installation backlogs has made it difficult.

If anybody can point me in the right direction to dig deeper into this reasonable response to energy shortfalls and expenses, I'd appreciate it.

PS:  I do know about the seeming success of the Italian subsidies for solar and heat pumps before the invasion of Ukraine and also would like to know more about that.

PPS:  Of course, in USAmerica there has been almost complete silence about this way to respond to Russia's carbon war and climate change.  The only person I know who makes the connection is Timothy Snyder, the Yale historian of Eastern Europe, but he doesn't really talk about the energy tactics available.

A carbon war is a war to continue using fossil fuels, one of Russia's main exports.  A carbon war is also, by definition, a climate war because it is a war to continue releasing carbon into the atmosphere and thus worsening climate change leading to climate chaos.

Who are the combatants, or adversaries?
Who has been injured and killed?
Is this war "lawful"? Which violations of whose domestic or international laws and sovereignty provoked this war?
