America's Roundtable

Roger Helmer | U.S. - Europe Energy Security Crisis | Germany to Reactivate Coal-Fired Power Plants | Iran Nuclear Threat

July 19th, 2022

Join America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Roger Helmer, former member of the European parliament representing the United Kingdom (1999-2017) and serving in the Conservative and the UKIP parties, respectively.

The conversation focuses on the importance of energy security and how Washington's ill-advised policies have led to record fuel prices adversely affecting working families and businesses. The conversation also highlights Europe's energy crisis and how countries such as Germany face even greater uncertainty with the forthcoming winter season. Germany's center-left government has now decided to ramp-up its coal-fired power production.

Europe's climate obsessions, its emphasis on renewables and the Russian factor have led to a major crisis that will impact citizens and the continent's manufacturers.

Mr. Helmer will present his message on how renewables undermine our energy security and how consumers, voters, and elected officials should apply principled market solutions to securing energy independence.

Amid the energy crisis, the discussion will bring to the forefront U.S. President Joe Biden's visit to Israel and Saudi Arabia, the concerns regarding a nuclear-armed Iran, and the instability it will create in the Middle East and beyond.

Mr. Helmer was a member of the following European Parliament committees — Industry, External Trade, Research and Energy and Employment and Social Affairs. He served as member of the ASEAN delegation. Mr. Helmer has worked with several multinational companies including Procter & Gamble, National Semiconductor, Reader's Digest, Tootal Group/ Coats Viyella, and Guinness PLC.

He is one of the founding leadership members of the Jerusalem Leaders Summit.

Mr. Helmer has published two books on European issues, "Straight Talking on Europe" in 2000, and "A Declaration of Independence" in 2002. |
