Russia started supplying natural gas to Germany again after weeks of “maintenance” on its Nord Stream 1 pipeline, which made Berlin leaders relieved. War and energy woes push the climate crisis

To minimise its dependency on Russian energy, Europe imports vast amounts of liquefied natural gas from the US and other partners.

As a heat wave spreads, 100 million Americans are on alert. The heat forces them to stay home or go somewhere with air conditioning.

The Netherlands and Germany use more coal. Greece’s public energy provider said last week it will delay phasing out coal for one to two years.
