Czech PM blows top and slams EU for orchestrating energy crisis as cracks in bloc deepen

Earlier this month, officials from Hungary warned the system would cause “serious damage” to the bloc, fearing it would increase the cost of energy for consumers.

The concern was echoed by France’s Minister of Ecological Transition Barbara Pompili who told the EU’s environmental ministers: “There is risk that energy prices will rise without any clear impact on carbon emissions.”

The EU has so far refused to accept responsibility for the energy crunch, claiming the ETS has only contributed to the crisis in a very minor way.

The energy crunch was at the heart of the EU’s summit last night, with MEPs passionately debating the issue into the late-night hours.
