    The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be

    Looks like we're in for a much rockier ride than many expect
    by Chris Martenson

    Saturday, March 31, 2018, 12:36 AM


    This marks our our 10th year of doing this.  And by “this”, we mean using data, logic and reason to support the very basic conclusion that infinite growth on a finite planet is impossible. 

    The only remaining question concerns how fast the adjustment happens. Will the future be defined by a "slow burn", one that steadily degrades our living standards over generations? Or will we experience a sudden series of sharp shocks that plunge the world into chaos and conflict?

    by David Collum

    Friday, December 23, 2016, 1:03 AM


    Every year, friend-of-the-site David Collum writes a detailed "Year in Review" synopsis full of keen perspective and plenty of wit. This year's is no exception. As with past years, he has graciously selected as the site where it will be published in full. It's quite longer than our usual posts, but worth the time to read in full.

    We Risk Being Collateral Damage In The Neocon Lust For War

    So much so that I've upped my personal preparations
    by Chris Martenson

    Saturday, October 29, 2016, 1:40 AM


    Among the many conflicts that are boiling over, the one that concerns me the most — by far — is the West's very intentional efforts to demonize Putin specifically, and Russia generally.

    Blatantly obvious propaganda is being used, most heavily by the very same (and unrepentant) main stream media outlets that were used the last time around — when we ended up commencing a 'pre-emptive' war based on ginned-up intelligence that turned out to be wholly false. We owe it to ourselves not be so easily led this time around.

    Russian Jet Shot Down By NATO Member

    A very dangerous provocation by NATO
    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, November 24, 2015, 6:35 PM


    This morning two Turkish F-16 fighters shot down a Russian jet, claiming that it was in Turkey’s airspace after it had ignored repeated warnings.

    There are two problems with this story. The first is that Russia claims to have evidence that the Russian jet never left Syrian airspace.  The second is that even if the Russian jet had strayed into Turkish airspace, Turkey knew there was zero threat to its security from a single Russian jet. Everybody and their uncle knows what Russian jets are doing in the area.

    This means that NATO, of which Turkey is a member, had given a greenlight to the idea of shooting down Russian planes.

    Is It Time To Prepare For War?

    A serious question, given the escalating geopolitical risk
    by Chris Martenson

    Tuesday, March 10, 2015, 4:48 AM


    I am seriously entertaining preparing for war, and as I’ve written before, the nature of this next war could involve everything from trade battles, to cyber attacks, to financial system assaults,  a downing of the US electrical grid, to an actual shooting war  — perhaps one that escalates to a nuclear exchange.

    When things are this obviously crazy, anything is possible.

    The Road To War With Russia

    We're not only on it; we've already arrived
    by Chris Martenson

    Thursday, January 8, 2015, 5:09 PM


    For several weeks now the anti-Russian stance in the US press has quieted down. Presumably because the political leadership has moved its attention on to other things, and the media flock has followed suit. 

    Have you read much about Ukraine and Russia recently?

    I thought not, despite the fact that there's plenty of serious action — both there as well as related activity in the US — going on that deserves our careful attention.
