Apocalypse – Shale Oil Kool-Aid

There’s been a lot of talk about how amazing and abundant Shale Oil is. Would you believe that almost all of that is complete spin? Media hype? You’ve heard the saying, don’t drink the Kool-Aid? Right. They are lying to you. First of all, Shale Oil is VERY expensive to extract from the ground. We’ve known about the Shale Oil fields in the US for a long, long time – decades, in fact. Did you notice when they started drilling in the Bakken Oil Reserve? Right. When Oil was above $100/barrel. And, with all that Shale Oil hitting the market, … Click here to read the rest…

Apocalypse – Crash Course

You’ve been lied to. You’ve been led by the nose. You’ve been taken for a ride. They. Lied. To. You. You hate that, right? Yeah. Me too. Well, the thing to do, when you find out that you’ve been lied to, is get yourself a big dose of truth and let it sink in real good. In fact, you need to let it soak. You need to let it get down deep. In short, you need to have someone show you the math, and I know just the person for the job: Chris Martenson. Christ Martenson spent his savings and … Click here to read the rest…

Apocalypse – Five Personal Implications

So, we’ve reached the limit. From this day on, we will produce less oil, less coal, less natural gas, less… everything energy related. What does that mean to you, personally? First – Economy Your standard of living is going to fall dramatically. The company where you work will start losing money and will very quickly need to lay off workers. If the company can’t reduce costs fast enough, they will go out of business. More and more of your income is going to be consumed by fuel and food. The cost of heating your home in the winter is going … Click here to read the rest…

Apocalypse – Oil Crash

Crude oil production peaked in 2005. They knew about it in 2006. They said nothing. They did nothing. But, there was a documentary that came out describing the problem and the implications. It won awards. We watched it and STILL did nothing. No, we did worse than nothing. We lied to each other and pressed harder on the gas pedal. Do not follow everyone else over the cliff. You must wake up and start planning for an apocalyptic future. The following movie was made in 2006, at a time when they weren’t quite sure that they’d reached Peak Oil. Seven … Click here to read the rest…

Apocalypse – Fossil Fools

Would you believe that they’re lying to you? We knew, since 2006, that oil production had reached its maximum output in 2005. They knew it, and lied about it. That’s right. They lied to you. For the past seven years. They are still lying to you. Are you going to wake up and do something about this?

Apocalypse

Two years ago, I stumbled across something that knocked me down and shook me up. In other words, it was a revelation. When ancient Greeks suffered such a revelation, they referred to it as ἀποκάλυψις, or apocálypsis (normally, with the involvement of some diety). Of course, we don’t say ‘apocalypsis’. We say ‘apocalypse’. How do we use ‘apocalypse’ today? When we say ‘apocalypse’, we mean disaster. That is because the Book of Revelation, which is chock full of disaster, was written in Greek. And, the title of the book? Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου, or ‘Apocalypsis Ioannou’ Of course, we Anglicized it to: … Click here to read the rest…

20 Years of Death

We are going to spend the next 20 years killing each other. And, that’s a conservative estimate. Because we’re efficient, we’ll probably do it in half that time. Why are we going to do this? You mean, other than the fact that we’ve become evil? Resources. Specifically, Oil. If you have oil, America is going to come and take it from you. If you resist, they will kill you. Other countries will be unhappy with this and will try to stop America. They will call this World War III. The casualties from this war will dwarf all the wars we … Click here to read the rest…

The End of Cheap Oil

Remember what I said about the resource shock that’s rolling down on us? I said it here I said it here And now, I’m saying it again. Let’s say a miracle happens. We avoid global financial collapse. We take out Iran’s nuclear weapons program. We discover that the EMP weapon that North Korea is developing was just hot air. Russia crawls back into her hole and gives up the idea of empire. What are we going to do when oil starts costing $200 and $300 a barrel? And yes, oil at that price is coming. Soon. Here’s a sobering video … Click here to read the rest…

Fed Energy Estimate Wrong

Remember when I said that we are on the way to experiencing a crash in vital resources? Well, it appears that the situation is a lot worse than expected. We actually have FEWER resources than we thought. Specifically energy resources. According to Bloomberg: The U.S. will slash its estimate of undiscovered Marcellus Shale natural gas by as much as 80 percent after a updated assessment by government geologists. The formation, which stretches from New York to Tennessee, contains about 84 trillion cubic feet of gas, the U.S. Geological Survey said today in its first update in nine years. That supersedes … Click here to read the rest…
