In the last couple of weeks, we see the proof that one of the “pushes” for renewable energy is DEAD. “Peak oil”, unless it meant when we reached the level of filling every container, ship, and oil tank out there and still had MORE and MORE coming out of the ground, is nothing but a lie, a scare tactic, a huge show of stupidity by the “educated” folks. The world is awash in oil. The price has dropped to a negative value in some markets. You literally cannot give the stuff away. THERE IS NO PEAK OIL AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL BE. This was a LIE, a political lie and a power lie, to cruelly deprive people of their lives and their livelihoods by the overlords.* It is being used to cause the extinction of species of animals, poison people in Third World countries and destroy the landscape all in the name of GREED. GREED=GREEN. Always did, always will. So in the name of a demonstrable lie, we will stupidly and apathetically allow the destruction of the environment and living standards of billions of people, energy from weather is installed far and wide to fatten the wallets of the already soulless rich. After watching fools sit in their homes in fear of a virus, I am sure your grandkids are going to live in hell, dark and hungry, because it’s just too tough to fight back. Well, except maybe in a few states where there are still real Americans fighting their tyrannical governors, but I can’t see that that will be enough.
We live in the Matrix, Wonderland (Yes, that was the White Rabbit you just saw, followed by the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts. You’re not hallucinating, you just bought the lie hook, line and sinker, kissed reality goodbye and now this is your reality.) We do so by choice and in complete denial of what it means. However, Covid 19 has showed us EXACTLY what this stupidity we display will mean and thus far, people sit in their house jails and watch a blank screen (they ran out of Netflix money a month ago). Domestic violence is up, etc, but the virus……No need for slight of hand. Just point to an imaginary threat and the people run and stick their heads in the sand. I’m living in the Soviet Union I was taught about in my youth—only someone moved it here….
So, get ready to exterminate those pesky eagles, owls and bats, be eaten by bugs and mosquitos, living without air conditioning, medical care, and apparently toilet paper. No problem with getting people to stop eating meat—livestock is being slaughtered and disposed of right now, milk poured out and vegetables plowed under. It’s UTOPIA!!! We have reached Nirvana. Or Hell. In this case, they look a lot a like.
Sadly, I see no way out of this. Apathy and stupidity is at such a level, human-created hell is inevitable, the extinction of animals and the death of millions is the only outcome seen. No miracles, no last minute save. Am I saying to “give up”? No, we already did. Those thousands of money trees slaughtering wildlife and killing Third Worlders are proof thereof. This is the world we leave to the children people didn’t love enough to protect or save.
Lights, heat, food and clean water. Sound environmental practices. No evidence of peak oil anytime in the near future. Comfortable, modern living.
Intermittant electricity, destruction of wildlife and open spaces, living at an 18th century level and destroying the environment in the third world countries you have manufacturing the parts for your “green” energy
Choose your future and your childrens.
