Green energy scandal brings down Portugal's Socialist government, new election called | Eastern North Carolina Now

populist right anti-immigration Chega Party likely to benefit


A major scandal involving corruption in Portugal's green energy program has led its Socialist  Prime Minister Costa to resign and his government to fall, with new elections called for March of next year.   Observers say this is likely to see a significant rise of the oppostion populist right anti-immigration sovereigntist Chega Party as well as the traditional right.

The last parliamentary election in Portugal was only in 2022, and the center-left Socialists came in first, followed by the center-right Social Democrats, second, the populist / nationalist anti-immigration Chega Party third, and rightist Liberal Initiative fourth. The outgoing govenrment only had a one seat majority.

"Green energy" is a scandal in itself. THe only thing "green" about it is the green money that flows into the pockets of the grifters who promote it.Green energy is much more expensive and much less reliable than conventional power. Both wind and solar are land intensive and have led to vast deforestation, which only in an Orwellian sense could be passed off as "green". That deforestation not only includes the sites where the wind and solar "farms" are built, but also vast swaths of the Amazon, known as the "lungs of the planet" which are being clear cut for balsa wood for wind turbine blades.

Here in North Carolina, the scoundrels behind pushing our own green new deal include Phil Berger and Jim Perry in the state senate and Tim Moore in the state house.
