$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.

@ PRB “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… Read more »

You got that wrong. White Californians have been steadily moving to the PNW for the last couple of decades.

The mass migration happening is niggers going back home to Georgia! May it continue and grow in number. The fetid and pestilential climate there is no place for a white man anyway.

Great blog post and discussion. Very interesting reading.

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… Read more »

Scipio,

So is extracting shale oil as cheap and easy as sucking it out of Spindletop?

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

rjp
Guest

Scipio Americanus says: 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!

It’s the abiogenic petroleum theory. This is something that should be taught in schools. If you think about it, it is quite ridiculous to think that dinosaur carcasses and decaying vegetation are responsible for producing the 85 million barrels of oil the world uses daily.

“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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

“How long does it take for US oil consumption to consume 1 billion barrels of oil?” World consumption is a 1000 barrels a second.

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

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… Read more »

“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… Read more »

Third, listen to the beginning of this nigger song from 1970. I heard this when I was coming across LA a few days ago on a shitty station that I settled for after my satellite antennae broke. I don’t think today’s niggers would appreciate this kind of honesty from their fellow Negros.

The last time I was in africa I rode shotgun for nerds looking for oil. They didn’t drill any wells, but they told me there is no shortage of the stuff

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.

Jim

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… Read more »

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.
