$3.89 Gas

Alabama

Driving through the Alabama Black Belt, I see that gas is now $3.89 a gallon for regular unleaded.

Smirking, I find my thoughts turning to an old book, a personal favorite:

“In a recurrent dream, I was sitting in a comfortable padded chair gliding swiftly over the landscape in a way that felt supernatural yet oddly familiar. I did not feel any wind in my face, despite the speed, which was much faster than anything I was accustomed to. I was deeply at ease in my wonderful traveling chair and thrilled by the motion. Familiar sights whizzed by: the Larmon farm on the Battenville Road, Holyrood’s cider mill, the old railroad overpass outside the village of Shushan, pastures and cornfields, hills, hollows, and houses I had known for years. In the dream, I came to realize that I was moving inside some kind of protective envelope, not just sitting in a wonderful chair. Then, a dashboard resolved before me with its round glowing gauges, and then the steering wheel. Of course, I am driving a car! It had been so many years since I had done that! It was a dream-memory of something that now seemed hardly different from the magic carpets of my childhood storybooks. I careened around curves in the road just missing gigantic trees. I couldn’t remember what to do with my feet. I had lost control …”

Note: Assuredly, we are getting there. Right on schedule too.

This whole area will be unrecognizable twenty years from now. The land is far too valuable to allow large concentrations of black people to squat here indefinitely. They will be pushed out by White settlers.

    There is no great mass migration to the Northwest – except illegal aliens, SWPLs, Asians and blacks, who are moving there to recreate the magic of California which is similarly divided between the coast and inland areas.

    The conservatives who are pouring out of California are going to Texas, Arizona, Idaho, Oklahoma, etc. Nothing but small numbers of WNs are moving to the Northwest and most of them seem to be headed to Montana.

    “You are 100% right about niggers being too stupid to fuck up very much energy infrastructure. They may be able to knock down a power pole or two, but that’s about it for their abilities. Besides, most of the power plants are way out in the country where negros are reluctant to travel.
    The most vulnerable components in the power grid is the transformer stations. Any Bozo with a length of chain could cause a world of trouble to those stations. It is my understanding that every city and town has a civil defense emergency plan for protecting those vulnerable points. Those plans won’t work in places like Detroit and Birmingham, but who is that going to hurt?”

  • Scipio Americanus

    I’ve long believed that Peak Oil will strangle the economy. H.W.

    Peak oil is a post-modern Malthusian myth that completely ignores Western technological advances both in oil discovery and processing capabilities that have actually increased known oil reserves along with the ability of refineries to process it in ways that were unheard of just a generation ago!

    The world is awash in oil despite the fact that American oil production is significantly lower today compared to what it was just twenty years ago courtesy of Uncle Sam(stein) and Company. This fact was confirmed by Shell Oil’s former CEO John Hofmeister just a couple months ago.

    This sharp domestic reduction is a result not of declining U.S. oil reserves but rather a deliberate policy to increase the cost of fuel while simultaneously lowering American standards of living.

    Oil is a natural by-product of the planet and is constantly being produced by it. That is why 50 year old oil fields, once depleted and closed down generations ago, are now being re-opened for business!

    Here are the primary reasons why oil prices have nearly tripled in recent years:

    1. The collapse of American domestic oil production from 10 million barrels a day just twenty years ago to a present figure of 7 million barrels while known American oil reserves have skyrocketed! This coupled with a decline in refinery capacity has led to upward pressures on domestic prices.

    2. The weak value of the United States dollar. Oil prices are denominated in U.S. dollars on the world market. Strong dollar = lower oil prices. Conversely, a weak dollar = higher oil prices. In 2008, the Federal Reserve pumped nearly 20 TRILLION dollars of “liquidity” into the banking system to stave off a banking collapse and re-inflate collapsing asset prices. This has had a ruinous effect on the strength of the U.S. dollar, thus reducing its purchasing power and increasing the cost of nearly every commodity that is denominated in it.

    3. The oil futures markets themselves have undergone a series of rule changes in recent years that have allowed large speculators, primarily Wall Street loan-sharking institutions like J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs, to drive up the price of oil in ways that are not available in other commodity markets. This coupled with the Jewish Chairman of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission’s blatant refusal to increase the margin requirements on oil futures contracts has led to a surge in speculative trading.

    This has been exacerbated by the Fed’s “monetary easing” policies that have allowed these criminal institutions to borrow billions of dollars at near zero interest rates for speculative purposes, thus driving prices much higher than they otherwise would be.

    In addition, thanks to the deregulatory lobbying efforts of the FIRE sector [Finance, Insurance and Real Estate] and their crazed, mad-dog “free market” advocates, protections that had been in place since the Great Depression have been largely overturned, effectively decriminalizing financial crime.

    4. American swashbuckling militarism in the arm-pit of the world currently designated as the “Middle East” [Near East] has had a destabilizing effect on the region. Political instability coupled with the threat of “regime change” in these oil rich nations has led to further pricing pressures on the markets.

    5. Israeli threats to attack Iran have led to further pricing pressures and market uncertainty. I needn’t expatiate on the importance of the Strait of Hormuz and what would happen to oil prices if that strategic choke-point were to be shut down for any length of time. Needless to say, it would catastrophic!

    6. Supply and demand. The treasonous and deliberate exchange of Western technology to build up the economies of known racial enemies such as the Chinese and Indians have increased world-wide demand over the past several decades. This demand will likely continue to grow given our suicidal embrace of “globalism” coupled with our masochistic delight in growing poorer to achieve the squalor of universal equality.

    I could list others but it should be clear to most readers that the primary factor for the rapid increase in oil prices has nothing to do with “peak oil” or other Malthusian price theories but rather the insane domestic and foreign policy decisions that our own government has openly embraced and imposed on our enfeebled population.

    In the end, market stability and political stability are two sides of the same coin!

    “So is extracting shale oil as cheap and easy as sucking it out of Spindletop?” – Kievsky

    No, but that is not the point. At $100.00 a barrel, shale oil is quite profitable for oil companies to exploit. Indeed, there is a shale oil boom occurring in Canada as we speak. The United States has the world’s largest known shale oil reserves, currently estimated at 12 times the size of Saudi oil reserves! Yet American oil production is 30% lower compared to what it was just twenty years ago. It doesn’t take a mental giant to figure out what’s going on here. It’s a deliberate policy — something the ruling Establishment doesn’t even attempt to hide in their internal policy memos.

  • John

    Much of the oil was produced when the planet formed. The quanities involved could not be explained in any other way. We are on an oily planet. A greasey ball.

    Oil Reserves Are Increasing

    Eugene Island is an underwater mountain located about 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1973 oil was struck and off-shore platform Eugene 330 erected. The field began production at 15,000 barrels a day, then gradually fell off, as is normal, to 4,000 barrels a day in 1989, Then came the surprise; it reversed itself and increased production to 13,000 barrels a day. Probable reserves have been increased to 400 million barrels from 60 million. The field appears to be filling from below and the crude coming up today is from a geological age different from the original crude, which leads to the speculation that the world has limitless supplies of petroleum.

    This really interested some scientists. Thomas Gold, astronomer and professor emeritus of Cornell held for years that oil is actually renewable primordial syrup continually manufactured by the earth under ultra hot conditions and tremendous pressures. This substance migrates upward picking up bacteria that attack it making it appear to have an organic origin, i.e., come from dinosaurs and vegetation. As best I have found so far Russian scientists support his position, at least that petroleum is of primordial origin. There is now plenty of evidence around proving the presence of methane in our universe. It is easy to see it as a part of the formation of the earth. Under the right conditions of temperature and pressure, it converts to more complex hydrocarbons.

    Roger Andersen, an oceanographer and executive director of Columbia’s Energy Research Center proposed studying the behavior of this reservoir. The underwater landscape around Eugene Island is weird, cut with faults and fissures that belch gas and oil. The field is operated by PennzEnergy Co. Andersen proposed to study the action of the sea bottom around the mountain and the field at its top and persuaded the U S Dept of Energy to ante up ten million which was matched by a consortium of oil giants including Chevron, Exxon, and Tex Corp. This work began about the time 3-D seismic technology was introduced to oil exploration. Anderson was able to stack 3D images resulting in a 4D image that showed the reservoir in 3 spatial dimensions and enabled researchers to track the movement of oil. Their most stunning find was a deep fault at a bottom corner of the computer scan that showed oil literally gushing in. “We could see the stream,” says Andersen. “It wasn’t even debated that it was happening.”

    Work continued for five years until funds ran out and they were unable to continue. With the world having 40 years of proven reserves in hand it is difficult to interest the major oil producers in much exploration, let alone something done merely for research, and so far from the current accepted theory of a fossil origin for oil.

    Similar occurrences have been seen at other Gulf Of Mexico fields, at the Cook Inlet oil field, at oil fields in Uzbekistan, and it is possible this accounts for the longevity of the Saudi Arabian fields where few new finds have been made, yet reserves have doubled while the fields have been exploited mercilessly for 50 years.

    Not only can the doom and gloomers not show us running out of the natural resources we recycle, but now there appears to be good odds of a limitless supply of petroleum working its way up to where we can capture it.

    A caveat: Gold’s theory is not yet accepted by all scientists, probably all the more reason to trust it.

  • YT

    Uhh…resource companies call “reserves” the things they have a) good reason to believe exist b) know they can extract profitably.

    The increasing reserves doesn’t mean that oil wells closed down 20 years ago suddenly have more oil in them. It means that with today’s technology and prices, the remaining oil in them can be extracted. They never run dry….they just get harder to extract from until it’s not profitable.

    That’s what peak oil is about. We aren’t going to just run out of juice one day like in the road warrior. It just means it will be more and more difficult to extract oil and the impact of it on world GDP will decrease.

    What did “peak whale blubber” mean? That all the whales are gone? No. It means 200 years afterward nobody can even quote the going price of whale oil because nobody gives a shit economically. Same could be said for coal most likely.

  • Scipio Americanus

    The increasing reserves doesn’t mean that oil wells closed down 20 years ago suddenly have more oil in them. YT

    This is incorrect. From the article I posted above entitled “Oil Reserves Are Increasing”:

    “In 1973 oil was struck and off-shore platform Eugene 330 erected. The field began production at 15,000 barrels a day, then gradually fell off, as is normal, to 4,000 barrels a day in 1989, Then came the surprise; it reversed itself and increased production to 13,000 barrels a day. Probable reserves have been increased to 400 million barrels from 60 million. The field appears to be filling from below and the crude coming up today is from a geological age different from the original crude, which leads to the speculation that the world has limitless supplies of petroleum.”

    “They [oil wells] never run dry….they just get harder to extract from until it’s not profitable. . . it just means it will be more and more difficult to extract oil and the impact of it on world GDP will decrease.” YT

    This presupposes the false notion that increases in productivity as a result of technological innovation, which ultimately drives down the cost of extracting and refining oil, remains fixed. Clearly this is not the case.

    [Sigh] It pains me to see so many good people fall for such nonsense hook, line and sinker! All you have to do to see through the falsehood is simply to take a good, hard look at the presupposition on which ‘peak oil’ rests: the notion that technological innovation and improvements in productivity remains constant/fixed. If this were true, then peak oil would be valid. But obviously it is not and falsehoods are never our friends in this struggle against intellectual fraud and deception.

    As I stated, peak oil is just a post-modern Malthusian wet dream concocted by Establishment-funded environmental lunatics and other Civilization-hating Leftists to convince the general public that ever higher oil prices along with a lower standards of living are inevitable.

    Oil Fields Are Refilling . . . Naturally – Sometimes Rapidly

    By Robert Cooke

    Staff Writer – Newsday.com
    4-10-5

    Deep underwater, and deeper underground, scientists see surprising hints that gas and oil deposits can be replenished, filling up again, sometimes rapidly.

    Although it sounds too good to be true, increasing evidence from the Gulf of Mexico suggests that some old oil fields are being refilled by petroleum surging up from deep below, scientists report. That may mean that current estimates of oil and gas abundance are far too low.

    Kennicutt, a faculty member at Texas A&M University, said it is now clear that gas and oil are coming into the known reservoirs very rapidly in terms of geologic time. The inflow of new gas, and some oil, has been detectable in as little as three to 10 years. In the past, it was not suspected that oil fields can refill because it was assumed the oil formed in place, or nearby, rather than far below.

    What the scientists suspect is that very old petroleum — formed tens of millions of years ago — has continued migrating up into reservoirs that oil companies have been exploiting for years. But no one had expected that depleted oil fields might refill themselves.

    Now, if it is found that gas and oil are coming up in significant amounts, and if the same is occurring in oil fields around the globe, then a lot more fuel than anyone expected could become available eventually. It hints that the world may not, in fact, be running out of petroleum. [NO SHIT!]

    “No one has been more astonished by the potential implications of our work than myself,” said analytic chemist Jean Whelan, at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, in Massachusetts. “There already appears to be a large body of evidence consistent with … oil and gas generation and migration on very short time scales in many areas globally,” she wrote in the journal Sea Technology.

    “Almost equally surprising,” she added, is that “there seem to be no compelling arguments refuting the existence of these rapid, dynamic migration processes.”

    This upwelling phenomenon, Whelan noted, fits into a classic analysis of the world’s oil and gas done years ago by geochemist-geologist John Hunt. He suggested that less than 1 percent of the oil that is generated at depth ever makes it into exploitable reservoirs. About 40 percent of the oil and gas remains hidden, spread out in the tiny pores and fissures of deep sedimentary rock formations.

    And “the remaining 60 percent,” Whelan said, “leaks upward and out of the sediment” via the numerous seeps that occur globally.

    Also, the idea that dynamic migration of oil and gas is occurring implies that new supplies “are not only charging some reservoirs at the present time, but that a huge fraction of total oil and gas must be episodically or continuously bypassing reservoirs completely and seeping from surface sediments on a relatively large scale,” Whelan explained.

    So far, measurements involving biological and geological analysis, plus satellite images, “show widespread and pervasive leakage over the entire northern slope of the Gulf of Mexico,” she added.

    “How long does it take for US oil consumption to consume 1 billion barrels of oil?”

    World consumption is a 1000 barrels a second. (There’s a Peak Oil book titled A Thousand Barrels a Second) U.S. is 25% of world consumption (and falling) so, 250 barrels a second X 3600 = 900 k per hour X 24 = about 20 million barrels a day X about 50 days = a billion barrels.

    “Peak oil is a post-modern Malthusian myth that completely ignores Western technological advances both in oil discovery and processing capabilities that have actually increased known oil reserves along with the ability of refineries to process it in ways that were unheard of just a generation ago!”

    Malthusian Myth? No. The magic of technology? Not so much as we wish:

    Yeah, sure, fracking and horizontal drilling in shale, these are new methods — which cost so much they’re only even barely viable at oil $100+, and creates wells that produce 100 barrels a day for 1-10 years; as opposed to the Saudi fields like Ghawar, where, stick a pipe in the ground, get tens of thousands of barrels a day from wells that produce for 50 years.

    There ARE no more giant fields like Ghawar, veritable oceans of black gold, where easy-to-get oil comes bubbling to the surface without much effort at all.

    EROEI: (energy return on energy invested)
    Ghawar: 1 barrel of oil spent drilling the wells returned hundreds or thousands of barrels of light, sweet crude; easy to produce, easy to refine.
    Bakken (Hannity’s supposed “trillion barrels”) requires fracking, horizontal drilling and wells that produce 5 years: 1 barrel of oil spent obtaining the oil returns maybe 10 barrels.
    The era of cheap, easy oil IS OVER.

    rest of post, blah, blah, blah, then this gem:

    “Supply and demand. The treasonous and deliberate exchange of Western technology to build up the economies of known racial enemies such as the Chinese and Indians have increased world-wide demand over the past several decades. This demand will likely continue to grow given our suicidal embrace of “globalism” coupled with our masochistic delight in growing poorer to achieve the squalor of universal equality.”

    Supply and demand means PEAK OIL. Supply and demand is all that matters. Those billions of new consumers WILL bring on the Malthusian trap. It is BECAUSE of those billions that Peak Oil is upon us.

    Primer on Saudis’ lack of the reserves they claim they have: Matt Simmons’ book Twilight in the Desert.

    Yes, it was treasonous of our leaders, but the genie cannot be stuffed back into the bottle. Now that the Chinese have discovered how great cars are, they will NOT gladly give it all up so us Americans can have cheap gas. They will buy reserves when they can — and war if they cannot. And don’t forget, Clinton allowed the sale of Cray supercomputers to go through to Red China, in contravention of U.S. law, the final piece the Chinese needed in order to build and then aim intercontinental ballistic (nuclear warhead tipped) missiles. For THAT he deserved impeachment.

    But regardless the fact remains, the inscrutable oriental smiles and nods and bows and scrapes — until he’s got the upper hand. Then he plunges the sword in to the hilt.

    Abiogenic oil: Even if so, it doesn’t trickle up as fast as we are producing, or there would be no such thing as production decline.
    And reopening old fields? I’m here in WY and I know for a fact that the tertiary recovery in Teapot Dome is a direct result of Anadarko using CO2 to sweep the “orphaned” trapped oils, left over from the heady days of production, into the old wells, causing them to produce a bit again. But those fields are NOT refilling themselves. If they were, if they were producing again like the 1920s, housing would be scarce anywhere in central WY, as is happening in North Dakota due to Bakken, and that just is not so.

    Sad fact is, the heady days of easy-to-get-at, cheap to produce, plentiful oil, are over. Peak Oil is real.
    Are there are alternatives? Scientifically, sure, but the healthy White societies needed to build the infrastructure to exploit them are not so readily available anymore, and getting scarcer by the minute.

    CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT RECENT PREDICTIONS OF IMPENDING SHORTAGES OF PETROLEUM EVALUATED FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF
    MODERN PETROLEUM SCIENCE.

    J. F. Kenney, Joint Institute of the Physics of the Earth; Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow; Gas Resources Corporation, Houston.

    ABSTRACT: For almost a century, various predictions have been made that the human race was imminently going to run out of available petroleum. The passing of time has proven all those predictions to have been utterly wrong. It is pointed out here how all such predictions have depended fundamentally upon an archaic hypothesis from the 18th century that petroleum somehow (miraculously) evolved from biological detritus, and was accordingly limited in abundance. That hypothesis has been replaced during the past forty years by the modern Russian-Ukrainian theory of abyssal, abiotic petroleum origins which has established that petroleum is a primordial material erupted from great depth. Therefore, petroleum abundances are limited by little more than the quantities of its constituents as were incorporated into the Earth at the time of its formation; and its availability depends upon technological development and exploration competence.

    “The era of cheap, easy oil IS OVER.”

    I forgot to add: The PROOF is BP’s Deepwater Horizon project, that blew out and killed the Gulf here last summer.
    Deepwater Horizon, to get to the oil, in the hurricane-plagued Gulf, has to anchor itself over 5000 feet of water, then send literally miles of pipe down to the ocean floor then CONTINUE for another 30,000 down into the deep, deep earth’s crust. The pressures from all that overlying rock and water are unimaginable. When that pipe broke through and gave that oil an escape route, the blowout was one for the ages. The blowout preventer was utterly inadequate.

    If abiogenic oil were *actually* bringing up to us, with no effort, trillions of barrels of oil for us to pump the easy way, would BP be so foolish as to even attempt Deepwater Horizon?
    No. The fact that BP even *tried* this stunt is testament to their desperation to replace their reserves as the easy-t0-produce onshore and shallow-water wells go into decline.

  • barb

    “ABSTRACT: For almost a century, various predictions have been made that the human race was imminently going to run out of available petroleum.”

    “Run out” is a strawman. No, we’re not going to suddenly have no oil at all. After all, Peak Oil means the peak of production. There are still reserves, but as the pressures fall as oil is produced, the 2nd half of a life of a well is a story of continually declining production.
    U.S. reached Peak Oil in 1970, as Hubbert predicted. Even despite the bump up from Prudhoe Bay find in Alaska, U.S. production has NEVER exceeded 1970, despite all those huge technological advances.
    Hubbert called for world peak in 2000. Now the IEA admits, worldwide peak production happened in 2006 and we’ve been on the undulating plateau since. The economy shows it: Booming economy = oil spike, which brings recession and decreased demand — for a while. When economy recovers, oil spikes again, and the cycle repeats.
    As the years pass, the economic recoveries will bring the spike faster and faster and the resulting depressions will last longer and longer.
    Meanwhile, we get the fun of rioting blacks when the oil-spike-induced depressions make the EBTs stop working.

    Technology will save us? Nope. There will be no money, nor adequately functioning society, for doing the kinds of vast infrastructure -building for LFTRs to make gasoline through the Fischer-Tropsch process, or offshore turbines to make ammonia for “the hydrogen economy.”

    Kievsky’s got it right: Economies will relocalize by necessity; there will be little sympathy on the part of semi-starved Whites for black whining; and AFTER the blacks burn the cities and then starve en masse, THEN Whites can have a country — and build the LFTR-powered post-Peak happy future.
    It will be hard, but Peak Oil is the Deux ex Machina to save the White race.

    Second, watch that movie about Nikola Tesla on Netflix if you get a chance. The guy had a remote control boat before radios had been officially invented, and his transmitter provided both control and power to the boat.

    He claimed that it was possible to use the static electricity in the ionosphere to power the whole planet. You used to be able to mail order little plastic radios that operated on Tesla’s principle.

    Deepwater had to go that far out due to environmental law. BP wanted to hit the same oil field in much shallower water but was told no by the govt.

    Yes, oil prices are up due to increased demand. That’s no secret. But America has no shortage of coal, and with scrubbers it is almost as clean as natural gas. The only catch is Obama’s EPA is now regulating CO2, which is increasing the cost of coal fueled electricity generation. There is a concerted effort to choke the middle class with high energy cost. The high cost of energy actually breaks down to be about one part demand, four parts design.

    I am not sure about abiogenic oil, but it may be irrelevant anyway. There IS something going on. I have enough “irons in the fire” already and simply cannot study every subject under the sun that is relevant, so my research into abiogenic oil and alternatives has necessarily been cursory. However, I did see that after telling us there is nothing to these alternative theories about oil there are megabucks being invested in drilling for oil far below where “establishment” theories assert. I am speaking of what they call an “oil window.” This “window” is between 7,500 feet to 15,000 feet. But they are now drilling far below that.

    I keep on on science and technology as much, or actually, these days, far more than I do politics and ideology. I can tell you that science, far from being the objective “wherever the facts lead and we build our hypothesis and theories from there, and objectively modify existing beliefs and theories accordingly” is in fact in worse shape than politics and ideology. “Establishment science is even more dogmatic than liberalism. Yes, you read that right and yes, I asserted it. There are several areas of science that “everybody knows” that are as off the mark and disingenuous as DWL’s.

    You have to dig deep and carefully examine the manner about which many prevailing theories and “thousands of experiments that confirm daily” are devised, supported and carried out. They are nowhere near as ironclad as many believe. And many of them are all but 100 percent for certain wrong. I therefore have little doubt that the prevailing theories concerning oil and its origin are wrong. I think, though, that the abiotic theory is not quite right, based upon what I researched. But like I said above, I am not so convinced that oil is not being replenished.

    And to take Barb to task, and others, too, I will also state that Malthusian views need to be laid to rest by you. It is simply not so. Resources are NOT declining. Don’t come back on here arguing with me. Research it. And I do not mean on forums and bullshit gas bag sites. Yes, I know that your “common sense” is telling you otherwise. But it is a fact that in some areas that good commodity will steer you false. Not because common sense is wrong, but because your common sense may probably does not include at the moment every experience you need, so to speak. I can show you several “common sense” analytical geometry problems and solutions that are “common sense” and “intuitive” to me but you would not see it. They are “intuitive,” in the same kind of way we say, “why didn’t I think of that and see it! Of course!” after being showed the solution.

  • Brutus

    Before anyone types out a response to me asking if I am stupid or something by asserting that Malthusian views are wrong and that resources are NOT decreasing, ask yourself the following question:

    Have you investigated this subject in the same way and with the same thoroughness and magnitude as, say, Hunter Wallace here has investigated the history of the South?

    If not, then do not be surprised if there are facts and alternative viewpoints that run counter to what “everyone knows” and what “common sense” dictates.

    Roots, don’t hurt yourself there with Lizard worship. I’m guessing you interpreted my words as pro welfare. Yes I’m sure the reforms did cut back in some formats yet 15+ years later will still have welfare entitlements out the wazoo. We still have angel adams types. We still have a gov system that destroys families all to boost gov taxes and control. We still have DWL (and many GOPs) who cry all about the “deadbeat dads” that are often a gov creation. A lot of that reform was nothing but smoke and mirrors or has been slowly reversed through other programs.

    If oil was still gushing, we wouldn’t be doing fracking and tar sands. End of story.

  • Stonelifter

    sure we would still do fracing and sands; that’s about the environmental movement and leftist political control and not a matter of there being no oil

  • Kievsky

    Fracking and tar sands prove that sufficient oil is not gushing like the Spindletop, like the opening sequence of the Beverly Hillbillies.

    No cheap gas is going to be the least of our worries when the spent fuel pool at Fukushima collapses.

    Don’t tell me not to post. I’m countering your assertions for the information of the lurkers.
    Lurkers: Here are *my* sources of information so you can research my claims:

    I got my information from gas bag sites? No.
    From these books:
    “Twilight in the Desert” by Matt Simmons, energy investment broker for oil companies, founder and chairman emeritus of Simmons & Company International.

    The Oil Factor by Stephen Leeb, chairman Leeb Capital Management (I know, he’s a jew, but his book written in 2004 called for the purchase of gold coins when they were still $350 / an ounce. Hey, the guy’s calls have made, and are still making, me money.) Explained Peak Oil and noted: When oil doubles in price in less than a year, expect recession/depression. When oil prices increase 20% or less y-o-y, expect inflation.

    “A Thousand Barrels of Oil a Second.”

    Gasbags? Here’s a gasbag for you. Lindsay Williams: The gasbag claims to have lived and worked with “elites” (whom he never names) in Alaska, and those anonymous, ostensibly insider, “elites,” he claims, broke their confidentiality agreements to feed him industry secrets, he says.
    Why him? I don’t know. Just to be nice, I guess.
    “Pastor,” he claims these unnamed insiders said, “we will tell you, and only you, a secret. There’s plenty of oil. Price will crash below $50 a barrel.” And it did. Wow, right?

    Well, that gasbag that knows there’s plenty of oil, that Peak Oil is a hoax, because unnamed “elites” told him so? Yeah. He now recently claimed his “elites” just told him oil is going to $150 a barrel or higher.

    Williams is a blowhard who made a good call, asserting he had some kind of insider information from anonymous “elites.” But the good call he made is entirely possible to do if you understand cycles. As Leeb shows: When oil doubles y-o-y due to high demand from economic growth (Mostly in China), then the economy crashes (and margin calls get made on oil futures contracts, and the price crashes — TEMPORARILY.) When the economy eventually recovers, the price climbs until demand bumps up against constrained supply and spikes, bringing another crash. Expect multiples of these cycles, with each iteration the economy recovering to a lower level and the price spike coming sooner in the recovery.

    Sort of like relapsing / remitting multiple sclerosis.

    Look, I get it that resource scarcity is pooh-poohed. After all the doomsayers were calling for TEOTWAWKI in the 1970s. Paul Ehrlich lost his bet.

    But, don’t yell at me. Just look for yourself at the price at the pump. Is it staying stable? Going down? Nope. It’s on its way back up.

    Econ 101:
    When supplies are high, price crashes. Ex. #1: nat gas.
    When demand bumps up against constrained supply, price spikes.
    If it’s oil supplies that are constrained, because oil is the lifeblood of technological civilization, price spikes cause an economic crash, which temporarily reduces demand, and the oil price comes down — until economic recovery causes demand to again bump up against a now even lower supply.

    Look, I’m not saying abiogenesis is impossible. What I’m saying is, so what?
    It doesn’t MATTER even IF there IS a creamy center of oil 40000 feet below the surface if we can’t get at it.

    And Whites can only do hard stuff like going to the moon and drilling 8 miles into the crust IF we have immense, functioning, healthy White societies already in place to make the necessary innovations and fund the exploration and infrastructure construction to make that energy available. And non-Whites can’t do it at all.

    But the Black Undertow + jewish Banksters’ theft took Mars from us and will take and are taking our future energy sources away from us.

    But….looking even farther ahead, on the other side after the Peak Oil collapse causes the inner city “youfs” to first riot when the welfare ends, then steal, then start eating each OTHER, when things are bad enough that the jews leave, THEN we will have our White ethnostate.
    THEN we can rebuild, regroup, figure out our abundant energy supplies, and eventually go to Mars.
    It’s going to be hard, but on the other side, our Golden Dawn awaits.

    I am now exceedingly bullish on European Man of Christian Heritage.
