About this Episode

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation with Roger Helmer, former member of the European Parliament (1999-2017), United Kingdom, and one of the influential Brexit leaders who campaigned to leave the European Union. We focus on the challenges America faces in the energy arena, the potential impact on the nation's economy, security threats and principled solutions.

The winter storms in America's South, blackouts and the rising death toll have brought to the forefront a greater focus on America's energy policy, and the Biden Administration's push to implement the 'Green New Deal' - a commitment to 100% dependency on renewables (solar and wind) and eliminating coal, oil and natural gas as electricity sources by 2035.

Americans should take a closer look at Germany's failed renewable energy experiment with160 billion euros spent thus far (US$193 billion) on wind turbine failures. By the year 2050, the costs would add up to 2 to 3.4 trillion euros (US$ 2.4 to 4.1 trillion).

Read — Der Spiegel: " German Failure on the Road to a Renewable Future" | May 13, 2019:
"In 2011, German Chancellor Angela Merkel announced the country was turning away from nuclear energy in favor of a renewable future. Since then, however, progress has been limited. Berlin has wasted billions of euros and resistance is mounting."
