The climate crisis is very real and it will cause increasing amount of suffering and disasters going forward. The problem is that there is no real solution to this crisis under capitalism.

The actual solution has to be to reorganize the economy away from consumption, and where people aren’t forced to work for the sake of work. Europe needs to drastically reduce energy consumption, but also ensure that people who are going to end up losing their jobs still have a way to live.

Meanwhile, a lot of large scale investment needs to happen into building out alternative energy production, and nuclear has to play a major role there, because it’s by far the most effective way to produce energy reliably outside of fossils.

Unfortunately, none of these things can happen under regimes that hold power in Europe currently. What I’ve described above is a much more likely scenario, and it will likely lead to the scenario you describe in turn.
