    These Are The ‘Good Old Days’

    At tipping points like now, the steps we take in the present determine our future

    We happen to be alive at a time of peak abundance and technological miracles.  It’s never been easier or more comfortable to be a human.

    On nearly every dimension — longevity, dependable access to food, quality of shelter, personal safety, leisure time, intellectual pursuits, technological advancements — no previous generation of humans have enjoyed the excesses and luxuries that we currently do.

    What are you going to do with that good fortune while it lasts? Because it won’t for much longer.

    Huge News: The Ghawar Is In Decline!

    The world's most productive oil field just shocked analysts

    Really big news hit this morning. And today is April 2nd, so we can't dismiss this as an April-fools prank.

    I explain it all with context below. But the summary is this: we're well on track for the oil supply shortage(s) and price spike(s) that I’ve been writing about for the past few years. It will all hit sometime between now and 2022 is my latest projected timeframe.

    This will be a before-and-after story. Before the coming price spikes, so much seemed possible. After they hit, so much less will be. The transition from Easy to Hard is now fully underwaym and you need to be eyes wide open about the data.

    Executive Summary

    • Why the wealthy are plotting to leave us behind
    • The "madness of crowds" virtually ensures a period of social chaos when the system breaks

    The Wealthy Are Plotting To Leave Us Behind

    In the absence of an official plan, you'd better have your own — something the extremely wealthy are already working on for themselves.

    As the co-founders of Peak Prosperity, Adam and I happen to know and/or interact with quite a few wealthy people who are deeply concerned about the future and taking steps to assure their survival in it.  These people have access to the very best information; they know the system better than your average citizen.  They know what the weak points are and what could go wrong.

    From our observations, it’s safe to say that the more insider-experience an individual has, the greater their concern.

    The least-concerned people are those without much knowledge of the system (i.e., most "regular" folks). Or a weak sense of curiosity. Or, most damagingly, a propensity to get their news from the mainstream media.  Let’s just say that the information available to the “retail crowd” is either incomplete or misleading (and quite often intentionally so).

    What I mean to say more directly is: if you're not already a billionaire and getting access to the very best and most accurate information, you’d do well to….

    The Importance Of Knowing

    Without insight, action is useless
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, November 28, 2017, 4:20 AM

    At Peak Prosperity, we strive to help people advance in three key areas: KnowingDoing and Being.

    Doing and Being are the resilience-building steps we recommend. Helping folks develop their own personal action plans in these areas is the main focus of the seminars we run.

    But Knowing? That's the essential first part to master. Without sufficient understanding and insight to guide you, any action you take is merely groping in the dark.

    Fight Cage

    It's time we stop being the victims in this experiment
    by Chris Martenson

    To my eye, society is fraying apart. People are confused, angry, isolated, and increasingly willing to fight each other. Formerly peaceful resistance is turning into violence. Our baser emotions like fear, anger — rage, even– are now bubbling at the surface.

    It's entirely reasonable for people to be experiencing such emotions right now. But in most cases, their anger is misdirected.

    Gail Tverberg: Why There’s No Economically Sustainable Price For Oil Anymore

    Producers need higher prices that the public can't afford

    Actuary Gail Tverberg returns to provide an update on where we are in the global energy story. Her outlook is not rosy: she doesn't not see a path for society to transition to an affordable, plentiful substitute to petroleum as a transportation fuel. The physics as well as the funding do not pencil out, at least with today's known technologies.

    The Environment: Depleting Resources – Crash Course Chapter 23

    Why scarcity will define the future
    by Adam Taggart

    The bottom line is this: we, as a species, all over the globe, have already mined the richest ores, found the easiest energy sources, and farmed the richest soils that our Environment has to offer.

    We have taken several hundreds of millions of years of natural ore body, fossil energy deposition, aquifer accumulation, soil creation, and animal population growth — and largely burned through them in the few years since oil was discovered. It is safe to say that in human terms, once these are gone, man, they’re gone.

    Shale Oil – Crash Course Chapter 21

    Expensive. Over-hyped. And short-lived.

    If you've watch the previous video chapter on Peak Cheap Oil, you may be wondering how any of that could be still be true given all the positive recent stories about shale oil and shale gas , many of which have proclaimed that “Peak Oil is dead”.

    The only problem with this story is that it is misleading in some very important ways. And entirely false in others.
