    PEAK OIL A HOAX

it has  occurred to me that the rothschilds have been behind just about every possible move to establish a new world order.

they financed rockefeller in the 1800’s to start standard oil. they financed the first electric grids in this country.

mr. hubbert was an employee of a major oil company not some research scientist at some university that was not getting money from some major oil co.

so i raise the issue. is it possible that peak oil is a hoax? at least for the near term?

they have been at it for centuries they think very long term and have the money to wait……."all things come to he who waits "

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

It’s hard to say. All information on this could have been easily compromised. Even data that Chris collected and uses in his presentations. It’s hard to know what the truth is when we get so many conflicting reports about everything.

A story always has 2 sides, and 1 is a lie. Do your own research as well, and make your own decisions. It’s all you really can do. The truth is getting harder to find by the minute.

For instance, hopefully we can pay attention to global warming before we are underwater

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

Mayor oil companies like TOTAL have publicly stated that they have supplied less oil in 2007 than in 2006! Peak oil is about supply, not about demand or price. At this state of affairs nobody can predict how demand will go, and hence nobody can predict how the price will evolve and how many years of supply we have left. But supply has peaked: it is not a theory, it is not hoax, it is a fact!

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

I would say the possibility of this is virtually nil.  There are many retired oil geologists who worked in the industry for 40-50 years who have looked at the data and agree that peak oil is real and is here now.  These folks have nothing to gain by continuing to mislead the public, as they are retired and no longer drawing paychecks from the oil companies.

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

Do your own observing. How many oil fields have been abandon in California? In Texas, In Oklahoma? How much oil comes from the fields in Pennsylvania? If those fields were still producing, why would we have drilled offshore for much more expensive oil? I live in New Mexico and when I go up towards Farmington from Albuquerque, I see many pumps standing idle while others nearby are pumping. I see small storage tanks here and there that have no pump anywhere near them. It is apparent that the big oil field up there is shutting down gradually. Ordinary common sense tells you that no oil field can last forever and therefore must have a half life.

 

Why is Mexico exporting less and less oil to us when they are in financial straits? Could it be because they are running out of oil? Chris’s stats are easy enough to verify on the web. Why is Canada developing its tar sands if it still has lots of oil to pump in its ordinary oil fields? No business develops more expensive ways to do business unless it has no alternative. Even if there is some oil left in the many fields around, just the fact that more expensive alternatives are being and have been developed tells you that extraction has become so costly that other alternatives offer a better return. If you think that peak oil is a hoax, then go buy yourself a couple of Hummers and celebrate. As for me, I am convinced just on the evidence of my own observations, and I was even before I took the Crash Course.

    PEAK OIL IS A HOAX

The oil is naturally occuring from methane trapped deep below. The only catch is that it requires deep drilling. making it more expensive.

There are many retired oil geologists who worked in the industry for
40-50 years who have looked at the data and agree that peak oil is real
and is here now.  These folks have nothing to gain by continuing to
mislead the public, as they are retired and no longer drawing paychecks
from the oil companies.

I wouldn’t accuse them of dishonesty or challenge their data. Their problem is that they weren’t looking for abiotic oil which has a different geology and is much deeper.

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

 I really hope it is true, in fact totally true. I have posted on here many times how I detest our total dependence on oil. But considering that Brazil just found a pretty large offshore oil field, and we don’t have the technology for ultra deep oil drilling at sea, as well as the fact of undiscovered land based oil, or ultra deep land drilling, Peak Oil may have some arguments.

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

Oh, and one more thing. There are thousands of sites on the web that disagree with CO2 being the cause of global warming and that even question if global warming is taking place. I agree with a series of articles I have found that say that the world has been warming about 1/2 degree per century for the past 1200 years and that it is caused by the sun increasing the amount of radiation it is producing and not by CO2. For a disagreement example:

I happen to think that Al Gore’s inconvenient truth was a ploy to try and get the world working on alternative fuel sources without creating the kind of panic that declaring that the world from here on was going to have to do with less energy. The hope was that by the time the truth was known, the alternatives would be in place. Trouble is they started at least 10 years too late.

Peak Oil IS a hoax – just like the CO2 scare.

There is oil enough for the whole world and for hundreds of years. For a fuller explanation and in order to start your surfing, go to

    Re: PEAK OIL A HOAX

I would read Chris’s own book suggestion ‘The Party’s Over’ for some in depth talk about Peak Oil. We’re very near it, if not already there. It may take some time, perhaps a few years before we actually realize it. Bottom line: it’s going to get ugly and fast once everyone realizes it.
