BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union’s top official exhorts the 27 member nations to wean themselves off natural gas not only to speed the transition to clean energy but also to make the bloc a more independent player in the world. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Wednesday on the eve of an EU summit centering on the energy crisis that the bloc imports 90% of its gas. Much of it comes from strategic rival Russia. Von der Leyen said that “this makes us vulnerable.”
