The continent of Europe is in a “world of pain” with its unprecedented energy crunch, according to Sky News host Alan Jones.

“I wonder if anyone in Canberra has cared to read anything on this, but this is what happens when you bow down to the green religion and become obsessed with renewable energy,” he said.

“When you go down that road, you can kiss goodbye to energy security and state sovereignty.

“You are totally dependent on others to provide you with energy.”
