Peak Oil = Peak Death

Lonewolf sent me this article link, Peak Oil and Famine: Four Billion Deaths.

Read this first, because both Lonewolf and I have some commentary to make regarding the several assumptions made by the author.

Goodchild errs on several points. The Earth’s population is most definitely NOT “automatically adjusted” to the Earth’s carrying capacity. Not even close. We have been in population overshoot for several decades now. All of the generations alive today are part of the population overshoot, which is in excess of 4 – 5 billion people.

Here’s A Good Reason To Store Food

I can only imagine what Mountain House food cost 37 years ago. But rocketing food prices are cause for real concern. Mountain House had a September price increase and another one is coming in January.

I’m more concerned about the growing global food shortages (if you need a password, try username: bushsucks, password: bushsucks) because there will come a point where the supermarkets simply won’t have what you want. This happens in every disaster, the stores shelves are stripped bare in a matter of hours. What will happen in a national disaster or manufactured “crisis” situation?

Exposure

I received this article in the email, Aerosol and Electromagnetic Weapons In The Nuclear Age which is a pretty interesting read. I’ve noted the strange “trails” in the sky myself, many times. But of particular interest is the health issues that are caused by this type of activity.

Lately, I’ve been suffering from some ongoing dizzy spells that appeared suddenly. And my cognitive abilities have been impaired, as has my eyesight. A visit to the doctor didn’t turn up anything, nor did the chiropractor I tried help either. I can’t put my finger on it, not yet, but I’m a bit suspicious of the sudden onset nature of this whole thing.

A Tidal Wave of Dumb

This article should shock the hell out of you: American Kids, Dumber Then Dirt

I have long wanted to write about the experiences I have had with the “public”. It mirrors what is covered in the article above. I swear, a huge percentage of Americans cannot read. If they can read, they cannot comprehend what they’ve read. Nor can they form a coherent question or understand the answer their given. Projections? Forget about it, forward thinking is unheard of.

Foreclosure Results In Suicide

This article is very important for the reasons I’ll state below: Lengthy SWAT standoff ends with suicide by chemist.

A lot of people have argued that in a severe economic collapse, the banks won’t force foreclosure on the tens of thousands, probably millions of bankrupt “owners”. This case proves exactly the opposite and supports the position I have always taken. They WILL come after you and your home and they will forcibly remove you from it. If you die in the process, well, hey, you were squatting, right?
Whether or not you choose to end your life as a result of something like this is up to you. I’d have tried a different tactic myself, but hey, that’s me. Like some others have said here, I’d take a few of the bastards with me. Oops, that’s a thought crime…

House Passes Thought Crime Bill

This was expected: House Passes Thought Crime Bill.

The government is getting very desperate to stay in control as everything falls apart.

Oh, and you should read this too, as you ponder the implications of this insanity: White House edited CDC climate testimony.

Warning — the following is a “thought crime” —

This bill is completely insane. It literally allows the government to define any and all crimes including thought crime as violent radicalization and homegrown terrorism. Obviously, this legislation is unconstitutional on a number of levels and it is clear that all 404 representatives who voted in favor of this bill are traitors and should be removed from office immediately. The treason spans both political parties and it shows us all that there is no difference between them. The bill will go on to the Senate and will likely be passed and signed into the law by George W. Bush. Considering that draconian legislation like the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act have already been passed, there seems little question that this one will get passed as well. This is more proof that our country has been completely sold out by a group of traitors at all levels of government.

It Will be Bad, Very Bad

The problem is that most have no concept as to how soon the transformation will start and how much their lives are going to change. The President, his government, the Congress, the oil companies, and indeed the media have left us with the impression that we have the transformation to an alternative fuel future well in hand. Bills mandating and increasing the supply of ethanol have been passed or are in the hopper. The President makes periodic references to hydrogen-powered cars. The oil companies allege there is no problem and the media takes it all in and remains mute.

Food Set To Become The Next Big Global News Story

[This article states what I’ve attempted to cover on this blog for some time now. Food is going to be in critical short supply. – Admin]

AT the beginning of the summer, the National Farmers’ Union of Canada put out a press release that included the headline Global food crisis emerging.

The release is scary reading. Based on early predictions by the United States Department of Agriculture on world grain supply and demand for the 2007-08 crop year, the NFU’s director of research, Darrin Qualman, broadcasts a dire warning that “we are in the opening phase of an intensifying food shortage.”

New Zealand Bans Coal and Gas Power Plants

This is an interesting development.  If I read this correctly, it’s a 10 year ban.  This might not really mean that much, if it just applies to new construction.

They are however, planning to produce a whopping 90% of their power from renewable resources by 2025.  Not bad, but bear in mind, they’re only talking about 4 million people.  And 2025 is going to be far too late (sorry, it just “is”).

Pic Of The Day

That’s the Arctic. The loss of ice can be clearly seen. This is where the new wars will be fought as the disappearing ice permits research and warships to engage.

It’s also clear proof to the climate change deniers, but I doubt it if will matter, they’ll explain it all away. Meanwhile, their local water sources will dry up, food costs will jump another 300%, nations around the world will slowly starve, and George W. Bush will still be promising to “get serious” about climate change.

More Resource Doom – World Demand Will Exceed Available Fresh Water Supplies By 50%

In less than 20 years, it is estimated that demand for fresh water will exceed the world’s supply by over 50 percent. Vanishing Water Supply

The news just keeps getting better and better. Read this article first, and then ask yourself, what happens when we reach 100% of the fresh water consumption? That will occur at some point long before 20 years. Then what? Then the water wars will be fought in earnest (not that they aren’t now).

Scientist Were Wrong About Global Warming

World climate experts have got some egg on the faces. As it turns out, they were wrong about global warming. It is not occurring as they predicted.

Even the IPSCC report is wrong. Their predictions on global warming are also quite mistaken.

Satellite imagery and on-site investigation has now revealed the truth: Global warming is far worse then anyone imagined or predicted.

Bye Bye New York

It is hard to shock journalists and at the same time leave them in awe of the power of nature. A group returning from a helicopter trip flying over, then landing on, the Greenland ice cap at the time of maximum ice melt last month were shaken. One shrugged and said:”It is too late already.”

What they were all talking about was the moulins, not one moulin but hundreds, possibly thousands. “Moulin” is a word I had only just become familiar with. It is the name for a giant hole in a glacier through which millions of gallons of melt water cascade through to the rock below. The water has the effect of lubricating the glaciers so they move at three times the rate that they did previously.

Clueless and Out of Touch

I can’t help myself —

“If they were poor and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they would be arrested for loitering, but because they have ‘Impeach Bush’ across their chest, it’s the First Amendment.”

“We have to make responsible decisions in the Congress that are not driven by the dissatisfaction of anybody who wants the war to end tomorrow,” Pelosi told the gathering at the Sofitel, arranged by the Christian Science Monitor. Though crediting activists for their “passion,” Pelosi called it “a waste of time” for them to target Democrats. “They are advocates,” she said. “We are leaders.”
