"Clean natural gas", chuckled the archeologist in 3022.
Just joking.
There won't be any archeologists, or people.

SpectroBoy: Russia wants the revenue from selling the gas.
I kinda doubt they did it. At least not on purpose.


They weren't selling any gas and they desperately need an excuse for their actions in the mobilization.

They did it themselves, and they're going to use it to say that all of NATO is attacking Russia.

Because I can absolutely trust a company from Panama that swearsies that it's totes not monitoring you!

/ it's really a choice of who is monitoring you at this point.

// it's really a...choice of evils....

Don't Lag Me Bro: The only country I wouldn't suspect is Germany.


I dunno.

The German intelligence agencies are possibly a bit concerned at how effective the Russian propaganda is on the right wing idiots in Germany, who had been calling for an of supplying weapons to Ukraine and for both nordstream pipelines to be operated at full supply.

With the nord stream pipelines asploded, the gas lines through Ukraine will need to carry more....which means bringing the war to an end sooner, by supplying more weapons to Ukraine and putting more pressure on Russia is a better strategy than leaving the Russian invasion to grind on for years.

It'd probably be a good idea (though maybe a bit late) to set fire to that. CO2 is less green-house-gassy than methane is.

Plus it would look cool.

If the pipelines had holes drilled in to them underwater somehow... I don't think that'd be the Russians. The Russians control the pipeline! They can just shut it off, and have done that at least once already.

Nord Stream 2 was never put to use, and Nord Stream 1 has been closed "for maintenance" since August. The gas escaping now was just there to maintain pressure.

Yeah, just saying the Russians control their end of the pipeline - they don't need to drill holes in it to fark it up. They can just unplug it. So for them to make the effort of sabotaging a pipeline they control anyway doesn't make a lot of sense to me.


yeah but Russians and sense are not really hanging out these days much.
so yes it was almost certainly them
