So, Russia has had ironclad control over natural gas in Europe for a while. They've been particularly brutal about it too-- you may remember this winter when Russia shut off the heat supply to nearly half of Europe over gas debt disputes with the Ukraine.
About 80 percent of Russian gas to Europe is shipped through pipelines crossing Ukraine. ...
As of Wednesday, nations including Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Turkey all reported a halt in Russian gas shipments. Others — including Austria, France, Germany, Hungary and Poland — reported substantial drops in supplies.
Well, naturally behavior like this had Europeans searching for latent natural gas reserves. Well, they found them in Poland.
This shit is huge-- the breaking of a gigantic, megatrillion energy monopoly. This is a dramatic shift in global economics. Think Beverly Hillbillies on the global stage. One day they was sick of Russia's lack of diplomatic art, and up through the shale came a-bubblin' farts. Transparent gold. Polish toots.

So what happens next? Well, the whole Polish cabinet makes a visit to Russia, and all happen to simultaneously die in a fiery plane crash under mysterious circumstances. I have heard two explanations presented. Trees and pilot error. These explanations are non-explanations. At least when the United States decides to engineer a disaster, we came up with some absurdly entertaining story about some Saudi royal living in a cave leading a bunch of Saudis to defeating multiple layers of US airway security on the one day ever we have happened to spontaneously send all our scramble-ready jets to Canada all so we can invade a couple countries that are not Saudi Arabia. "Trees did it" is clearly a gigantic load of bullshit, and I can safely call this one now:

Russians did 4/10. Never forget Poland.
