Are you being serious just now? As in, are you actually being serious? because if you are, then I'll just stop talking to you. If you won't discuss things based on the core and on the major issues but just nibble round the edges like a hamster, well... I don't have time or patience to deal with hamsters.
Honestly, I nearly had a brain melt when I read your comment. It took me 5min to formulate a response because I just couldn't believe what I was reading... what a stupid talking point.
Energy imports from Russia drop during the summer and spring and increase during the winter period. Since most consumption of energy is in transportation and house consumption, since you don't need to heat up so much and people walk more during the warm seasons, there is always a drop in energy imports. And a hike in cold seasons. this is not rocket science.
What you are doing is making a talking point out of nothing. There is nothing to be discussed there. I said 30-35, the article said 35, you said 36. By your logic, you're trying to overestimate the impact. I'm not accusing you of that however because I know how statistics work and I like to spend my time discussing something worthwhile. But as it stands, I just wrote 3 paragraphs trying to explain to you why your line of discussion is not just boring, but irrelevant.
The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
