Unthinkable


     In the drunken, drug-crazed twilight of its run as Leader of the Free World, America's collective imagination swerves from one breakdown lane to the other while the highway patrol throws a donuts-and-porn party down at headquarters and the news media searches the gutter on hands-and-knees looking for the spot where it dropped its brains. 
     The other day, Larry Kudlow, the king popinjay at CNBC, told viewers that the US has over a trillion barrels of oil waiting to be drill-drill-drilled on our way to "energy independence." This is the kind of malarkey that America thrives on these days, the way yeasts thrive on sugary mash. It's a complete falsehood, of course, but the working dead over at The New York Times said substantially the same thing in a front-page story the week before. The Timespersons have only one source for their stories: Daniel Yergin, chief public relations pimp for the oil industry, because he makes it so easy for them by providing all the information they will ever need. The oil and gas companies would like to direct the fire-hose of loose and easy money out there into their stock prices - building to the magic moment when, Mozillo-like, the executives can dump shares, cut, and run for the far hills where no SEC officer or DOJ attorney will ever think to look. This is just another racket in an all-rackets society.
     The fantasy of energy independence therefore takes shape as a "settled matter" as we lurch toward elections. The arch-moron Mitt Romney will inveigh against Obama for holding the oil dogs back while Obama pretends to spank the oil companies for gouging the public on that alleged Niagara flow of new oil. None of them understands the true situation, which is that the USA is enjoying one last gulp of a very expensive oil cocktail with the last few dollars it can prestidigitate out of the central bank's magic box, and then there is no more even notional surplus wealth to blow on more drinks. 
     And it isn't even much of a gulp. US production of "all liquids" - which includes methane gas drippings, ethanol, etc - went from 7.2 million barrels a day in 2004 to about 7.7 in 2011. We use about 19 million barrels a day, down about a million from peak US consumption before the financial crash of 2008. The reason it's down: Americans are going broke, one household and one small business at a time. Shale oil production is approaching half a million barrels a day. That's about 45 minutes of daily go-power. It might go up to an hour-and-a-half before production of shale oil permanently crashes on the combination of fast-depleting wells and a lack of capital to keep drilling new ones at $8 million per well.
    The story for shale gas is similar, except that initial production was so exorbitant that it drove the price down to nearly nothing (the $2 range), and the bust from that Ponzi will be even more spectacular than the shale oil. Everyone from Mr. Obama to the chiselers who run Citigroup maintain that there is a one hundred year supply of gas in the USA. They are going to be very disappointed. The public, on the other hand, will not even remember what they said as they burn down the cornfields in anguish.
     I met a guy at the pumps last week who was filling up a pickup truck at least twice the size of mine a few yards away. I asked him how things were going fuel-wise with that monster Ram-Charger he was feeding. At more than $100 a fill-up, it was killing him he said. His line-of-work required him to drive all over the county incessantly. His reality was a bit different from the oil company execs promising limitless horizons of oil to CNBC-watching retirees desperate for some "yield" on investment in the face of ZIRP bond rates. The price of oil (and gasoline) may well crash again, but when it does, there will be fewer business reasons for anyone to drive around the county all the live-long day, and that guy's Ram-Charger could fall into the hands of the re-po goon squad. He may never be able to get another one, either. No more money for truck loans. Capital shortage. Sorry.
     This oil and gas thing cuts so many ways that the public will feel like it is gargling Gillette blue blades. Just add up the total tonnage of steel necessary to keep this Ponzi going and you would reach a discouraging conclusion: this thing has nowhere to go but swift and implacable contraction. The ultimate destination of "energy independence" will be a nation with no cars and trucks to run. We'll get there, you'll see. But that is speaking the unthinkable.

Its good to see JHK back in form again. His point, though anecdotal, about the $100 fill-up shows he's an astute observer of the severe financial strains the 99% are going through. My take on it is there is really no where to go to get away from the coming Long Emergency.

A trillion barrels is laughable. The entire endowment 100 years ago was not much greater than that. Meanwhile one in four children go hungry and the employed remain unemployed at 1930's depression levels with no end in sight.

It looks like quObama has taken the last man standing position and is running with it.

Agree with the conclusions re where this particular C-F is going, but I doubt that the politico's are drinking their own kool-aid. The PTB know and understand the realities of Peak Everything very well.

They just don't have the guts/brains to publicly acknowledge this reality, because then they would be expected to come up with a plan to cope. Much tougher than trying to police the 'privates' of the nation, or fiddling 'hopey-changey' songs while the nation burns down.

Save yourself and your community, it doesn't matter which particular clown is running the circus, you will be on your own when push comes to, well, shoot.

That Ram-Charger guy might be needing some alt trans soon......and a cargo trailer.

"prestidigitate"

________ searches the gutter on hands-and-knees looking for the spot where he dropped his thesarus?

Make any other words up this week?


I imagine with the bull and deception at record levels Iran goes ahead full speed with plans for self defense. Fearing an entire nation of nuclear armed starving potato farmers in ten years is a reasonable assumption the way things are going. Malnutrition and protruding ribs can make one do embarrassing things.

A good friend was telling me about a retired uncle who was getting into this shale oil/gas thing as an investment adviser. I told him, based largely on what I had read here, that I thought it was a boondoggle; a way to milk people out of their money before the whole thing fell apart (which would happen not far in the future). Not long afterward, Jim posted a good overview of the situation here, and I forwarded it to this friend. No response from him. It probably scares him.

Not long ago, he traveled across the country to attend some conference on investing, etc. My wife told his wife that we'd gotten out of the stock market. She was asked "but then how are you going to make any money when things get better?" My wife responded, "PRD doesn't think things are going to get better."

That ended the conversation pretty quickly.

I see you're back to your usual self this morning and it's no April Fools. As for your targets, I agree with you about Kudlow, Yergin, and Romney. I think Kudlow is too much of an ideologue to be able to tell the truth about the stock market, let alone the broader economy. He's there to convince people to buy, buy, buy! You have Yergin's number. I've learned not to listen to what he says anymore. As for Romney, shouldn't he avoid talking about dogs?

I've been blogging a bit about the politicization of the price of oil over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News this past week, with a collection of links as well as my personal observations of how Michigan is reacting to the statewide price of gas rising over $4/gallon for the fourth time in four year, along with bonus observations about how four is an unlucky number in the cultures of East Asia. I've also been following the unseasonably warm weather; 50 cities in the U.S. had the warmest March ever. Despite the high price of gas, the economy here is doing its best to stage a business as usual recovery. Too bad these aren't business as usual times. Other subjects include Keith Olbermann being fired again, Earth Hour, and song lyrics. Yes, really.

Happy Motoring--for now--from Detroit!

Dat 'Ol Bible warns of a humungous tangle of nations to include Iran, Egypt, and Syria sometime around now. Oh, and Israel and maybe a few others. Institute for International & Strategic Studies concurs- just a coincidence.

Website spv.co.uk offers US Rail Map Atlas Volumes which might prove helpful to USA planners interested in supplementing existing rail lines with rebuilt abandoned rail corridor. It seems to boil down to transport as we enter Cordesman's twilight zone of war-inflicted energy emergency.

As much as one may fear the ignorance of the line-up seeking President Obama's job, the newbie deserves what he is going to get, even if the rest of us may not. The Presidential family now in residence shall, hopefully, be out of harm's way when the man with his heart in Utah steps up... Frank J. Cannon had it right way back in 1912.

I part with JHK by thinking that the downslope after Peak Oil's global emergence will be gentle.

Gentle, globally, that is. Here in the States, the "public will feel like it is gargling Gillette blue blades."

We do want to believe in miracles.

I cannot get my head around why so many Americans who SHOULD know that oil depletion is not a "hoax foisted upon the nation by the Left" (Gingrich's words) don't know better.

We are a nation of fools, in the sense that we have been fooled or are gifted, like Yergin, at fooling others. We are living in a fool's paradise.

Paradise lost, and soon.

When we moved from DELMARVA to NYC,
we kept our car.First,our insurance jumped from $50/mo. to $125.Tthe mis-named Traffic Enforcement people(they have NO dealings with traffic-they solely exist to write parking tix)
handed us on the average $100/mo in tix.One morning I went to my parked car and found the side mirror dangling from a hit and run.There was also a ticket for damaged safety equipment.
We sold the car.Best thing we ever did.
Using cabs,buses,the subway and rental cars,we save about $500/mo!
Of course ,NYC is the most walkable city in the US,so I don't know what's to be done in the 'burbs other than get out.

Oil Rigs way out in the ocean here, the last of the arctic ice bearing down on them rapidly.

All seems kind of fitting. In a prestidigital kind of way.

The comment on hungry children in the USA above reminded me of a BBC report I saw in February:

http://tinyurl.com/7be2stf

Near the end a shy and embarrassed young girl describes how her family is eating rats because they have nothing else. It breaks my heart and it makes me angry that the USA can hold itself out to be the light of the world while allowing this to happen.

Great column today. I agree as to the stock market looking for ways to prop itself up and get the last remaining dribble of savings from the idiots who think it's sustainable. I too have a giant p-u that costs $140 to fill, I do make some money with it, but reality is that it is always too little. I would be a bit uneasy trying to haul the load with a hybrid squatmobile tho. In the meantime the handpowered woodshop is doing well and expanding. Grocery prices are edging ever higher, wages ever lower, bullshit ever more unbelievable. Maybe there is really no reason to have an election as all the talking heads are morons with no clue other than to overfill their own coffers to escape like the robber barons in your blog. I'm sure they will all enjoy their own company until the masses uncover their hideaway. In the interim, the collection on wagon building is growing along with the skills. Just reread "Last Light", and realize once again how quickly it could all happen. And how long it would take many to believe it. Enjoy your column.

Regarding the slippery nature of human nature my understanding of the situation has reached new depth. K-DOG. I'm currently on page 221.

JHK,
In the wind-up, you say,

"Just add up the total tonnage of steel necessary to keep this Ponzi going and you would reach a discouraging conclusion: this thing has nowhere to go but swift and implacable contraction. The ultimate destination of "energy independence" will be a nation with no cars and trucks to run. We'll get there, you'll see. But that is speaking the unthinkable."

Keeeee-wrecked!
Another shortage awaiting its' turn upon the rack.
Yeah, sell off all that extra/useless scrap metal to our industrial competitors; we'll make more. Oh, what's that you say? Too expensive to mine and smelt the ore? No capital? Oops.

Yes, I'm sure TPTB are well aware of the energy predicament, but "business" now dictates that duping the herd is where the wallet-draining begins and ends. Which brings us full circle to why nobody seems to "get it".

To the desperate, debt-laden, distance-driving dupe in the Ram (gotta love that testosterone-laden label), Mr. Sinclair said it well:

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."
- Upton Sinclair

The New York Times also featured an article in Sunday's New York Times Magazine titled "The Real Oil Shock". The gist of the article was that most people really aren't affected by paying $4 a gallon for gas. The final paragraph? "As billions of people, throughout the world, enter the middle class in the coming decades, there will be an enormous increase in the demand for gas....But at that point, we will all probably be driving solar-powered hovercraft anyway". The N.Y. Times, boy, you gotta love 'em

Kudlow is engaging in sleight-of-hand, no doubt. He's counting all that kerogen in western U.S. shale deposits as "oil", and then adding it to the U.S. P+P reserve number for actual oil.

The current Time magazine article on U.S. fracked oil is at least somewhat more honest, as the author freely admits that fracked oil will always be very expensive to produce, and that no matter how much of it is pumped out of the ground, the overall trend cost of oil and gasoline is only going to go up.

Extension of the Keystone XL pipeline from Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast will further exacerbate the problem; as all that stranded Canadian tar sands oil reaches Gulf ports for shipment worldwide, the price differential between WTI and Brent crude will disappear, with the price level moving in the direction of the higher Brent price.

I doubt you could get to a trillion barrels even with that sleight of hand. Of course one can make all the pretty maps one wants to if one is dishonest as Kudlow has clearly identified himself to be.

No, No, NO. All wrong. We're only a few years away from flying cars that will burn kryptonite for fuel. Don't be so pessimistic !!!

Many of the politicians and media hacks are not stupid, but milk their role as PR flacks (liars) for the actual rulers. Many retire quite wealthy.

It is obvious that exponential growth cannot be sustained on a slow growing planet. What is less knowable is when it will stop. Perhaps the rulers know, but all data released by their corporate, political, .edu and .gov minions is likely tuned to support one racket or another.

Very good post Jim. Someone smarter than me once said how slow change seems to come; but once here, how fast it happens. That will be us.
Many will look back and wonder why they "did not see" much like the Tech wreck and housing bubble.
It all makes me kind of tired

Ouch! That kind of glittering, rose-colored, hubristic, pretend journalism ensures that bidnez as usual will blunder on unimpeded, I suppose.

I guess it's like "they" say: "If you can't blind 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit."

But the delusion is bipartisan, vast swaths of the proles in either camp want one thing "MORE."


Hey guys, that trillion barrels is real.

It will provide people around the world with all the gasoline they want, at $250 per gallon.

By the way:

Gingrich was right about 250 gas, he just got the decimal point off by a couple digits.

Our real problem is that gas is much too cheap.... corrected for inflation to, say 1960. Figuring a multiple of ten that makes it about $.40 /gal. That's why folks are flocking back to the big guzzlers again. Big pickups are flying off the dealer lots.
Strange that a little old 50s chevy pickup with a blue flame six
can do the same job of hauling old mattresses from Arkansas
to Kalyforny as a new Dodge Ram. Meanwhile, as JHK says, we
print the money to pay for our imports. -so far, so good.

Once the EROEI goes negative it does not matter how much there is out there or how much it costs. It would be like:

Water, water, every where, nor any drop to drink

But of course the idea that we have any such significant reserve is total fantasy.

Whats with the whole "quObama" thing anyway?

Jims story reminds me when I lived in Nor Cal during the Iraq invasion and gas was headed up to $4.00 a gallon, and some guy was bitching about how much it cost to fill up his jacked-up F250.

When I asked him "Why don't you get a smaller, more fuel efficient truck?" He looked at me like I had Tourettes or something.
I shrugged, and drove off, having filled the 10 gal tank of my Honda Civic that got 35+mpgs and not having to fill up again for two weeks.

It all comes down to choices, and some of us make smarter ones than others.

But hey, its all good, eh?

Down here in sunny south Florida, you wouldn't know that gas is now $5 a gallon at the marina. Looking at yesterday's boat traffic on the Intracoastal Waterway, one might think that gas was more like $2 a gallon. Exquisite 20 meter yachts, convertibles, sedans and 50ft sportfish plied the waters (on a gorgeous day) endlessly. Some of those babies easily take on 500 gallons or more. Smaller open fishing boats of 20-30 ft were everywhere with multiple, monster outboards of 225hp plus on the transom: you know even with those vessels (that mere mortals can afford,) it was a pricey fill up. How will the next oil price mania, caused by perhaps, a little rumble in Iran, for example, going to make the motor-boating public feel about a $500.00 fill up for a days fishing? I myself are getting ready for the "long Emergency" with a 30 year old sailboat on a trailer. With the 9.9 hp and a decent wind I could go all day and maybe use four gallons. Affordable even for a "wasteproduct of hypercapitalism" like myself. With the exception of government we will likely be going back to oar power after this whole "big slide" plays out. Thanks JHK, I need some straight rum now.

That's right; and it all goes along quite swimmingly until somebody says, "Heeeeeeey... wait just a gol-durn minute here." Soon we'll see who can be bought, and who might place some value in their sovereignty.

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article30955.htm

(Now, you'll notice that this is one of those commentaries that insists that gold is the one-and-only real store of value. I don't totally agree, but the stuff IS rare and portable; and the Chinese are collecting a large mountain of the stuff. He makes his point about the illusive value of fiat currencies and the muscle behind it, regardless.)

Ahhh, all the complaining on this site. The key to getting out of our predicament is productivity! Got to have more productivity. And where have we seen the greatest productivity? In the financial sector, of course. Behold all the financial "products" they've created over the past decade! I means SIVs and CDOs and all the other alphabet soups. Wow! Such prowess. Such leadership. So I don't want to read any more compaints from you yoyos who weren't smart enough to get into the financial sector. If you had done that, maybe you too could be enjoying the coming summer in your home out in the Hamptons rather than complaining about $100+ fillups.

Here in New York we are “blessed” with a Governor who can’t wait to sell out the people of the state to the Oil and Gas crowd and allow hydro-fracking so he can get his hands on all that “free” campaign money for his 2016 bid for the White House. The rural parts of the state are just cash cows to old Andy. (Dick Cheney isn’t the only politician than needs a new heart.)

One quarter of the world’s fresh water flows through New York State, and he’ll throw all that liquid gold away for the green kind that Big Oil and Gas will throw at him to get their fracking hands on our patrimony, just so they can make a killing selling it to the Chinese.

History might just repeat itself. Al Gore lost his home state in 2000. And this time I don’t think the Supremes will make Andy a winner.

"Whats with the whole "quObama" thing anyway?" -D

Dee,
I believe that would be K-dog's shorthand for "STATUS quObama", which is succinct and nicely accurate. ;o)

Peak Oil is nothing to fear. We’ve been living in it for a couple of years now. All the cheap, sweet, light crude is gone. That’s why our gas is now coming from crap oil — Canadian Tar Sands (which require expensive processing to use) and ocean bottom a/k/a deepwater drilling (horribly expensive to extract). This alone is helping gas prices skyrocket.

So start investigating alternate sources of clean, renewable energy you can install yourself. Demand more public transportation be available. Trains can be pulled across country by steam engines fueled with coal. There are many, many solutions out there. For many centuries, people lived without petroleum. We can learn to get along without it and the world will not perish either.

Meanwhile, black Americans are on the edge of rebellion over the Trayvon Martin case (and who cna blame them?) while the Supreme Court is prepared to strike down the only attmept at health care reform in the past century that ever got anywhere. Again - Obama is Luo for Hindenburg, and you all know who succeeded that German president.

So, Isjogren, the economists are right then. Oil will always be available at some price. :-)

ccm989, you sound like a follower of John Michael Greer (Green Wizard/alternative-energy-you-can-install-yourself guru).

Steve,
Respectfully, I really don't think it's necessary to point out that first issue at this juncture; we'll be getting a snoot-full of it from the gum'mint distractionary agent provocateurs shortly.
(Believe me, you'll see!)

Has anyone else noticed all the stories lately about how the USA is going to be energy independent thanks to our allegedly enormous supply of natural gas (trapped in shale rock, but obtainable now through frakking)?

Last week in the "Washington Post," Fareed Zakaria called this a global energy game changer. In today's "Washington Post," the execrable Robert J. Samuelson echoed the them that America is poised to become energy independent thanks to natural gas.

And I've was thinking at I read them, what would JHK say about all this? I appreciated today's column, but I hope Jim, if you're reading this letter, that you devout another column to this, because on the one hand it sounds too good to be true, and on the other hand, if true, it sounds too horrible, given the global warming implications.

I clicked and saw the Mexicans so I stopped watching the link.
Amazing where theres ebt/foodstamps/school lunch programs. [and now school breakfast and dinner programs].
Amazing that BHO has not been run out of office.
Weve 1 in 6/ on EBT. Most black men are unemployed
[I assume they want to work].
Michelle Obama just jetted to Vegas while BHO took his 93? golf day!

Someone reports the Mexican kids on the school lunch
program 'All have 400$[?] Iphones, Ipads, etc].
The 'new' poverty.
Only in white Christian countries.

The quObama thing is because the man who campaigned on change we can believe in turns out to have been placed in office by the most well orchestrated PR campaign in history. To a careful listener even his acceptance speech showed the beginnings of the betrayal to come. I was listening to an old podcast recently with several progressive speakers who were drunk with enthusiasm of the change to come. It was just after his election. One said that we finally have "A rocket Scientist in the White House". Turns out the man doesn't understand science at all and may be mathematically challenged.

A housing development can be named 'Pheasant Ridge' but the act of building the development displaces all the pheasants. The election of Obama has displaced any hope of change in the same way. In the face of evidence to the contrary people want so badly to believe in him that most still believe he is working for change but doing it behind the scenes. Such a belief is totally irrational but we want to believe in him so badly we choose stupidity. People wanted change so badly they believed him and gave him their votes without really looking at the man and who he really was.

Obama was placed in office by Wall Street and we the people bought his deception hook line and sinker. We were told what PR focus groups had determined would sell and it turned out to be 'change'.

So:

Status quo => quObama

Status quo means avoiding change at all cost. The powers that be like power and want to retain it. The powers that be (0.1%) don't want to share power or give it up and they will absolutely destroy society in order to keep it. We are not of their tribe so they care nothing of us. Those in power think they are special as we all do unless we become enlightened. That's human nature.

K-Dog for President I'm for change and I mean it.

Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky knew he was bullshit from the git go, as did I.


Theres a site devoted solely to the horrors of
the NY Times.'CRIMES OF THE TIMES' Blog.

....And so it begins.
See ya; have fun!

Ah, Jeebus. I apologize for all the errors in that letter.

Yes theres the 'Psychology of Previous Investment'
or Denial of 'diminishing returns'.
And some with lung cancer keep smoking.

Precisely PRD. It is simply unimaginable to the 99% that the American way of life as we know it merely looks alive, while in fact it is already DOA. I run into the 'end of the conversation' issue all...the...time. Unless you tow the company line that the recovery is under way and we are returning to 'growth', nobody wants to hear it. It just absolutely amazes and baffles me how and what is holding this CF 'recovery' up! Well..the bitter fact is....nothing. Nothing at all is holding it up but the faith of the stupid consumer dolts who continue to piss away money in the absurd belief that they will garner any 'return' of consequence: "Siddown pigeon...you put yer money in when we tell ya, ya take it out when we tell ya".
I am reminded of a coworker who spent his weekend mowing his five acres of America. I asked him why he just didn't let it grow up to meadow; it is a much more diverse habitat than a mowed sterile expanse. Eyes blinking, he responded that his wife liked everything neat and tidy. Uh huh. Then I asked what he was going to do when there was no more oil to run his mower? Eyes blinking. He had no answer. The next day he proudly reported that he read about a guy who was going to make oil from grass clippings! Problem solved, he thought. Well I couldn't leave it alone, so I pressed him further. So you are going to mow your lawn and use the clippings to make more oil so you can mow your lawn? Did that seem sustainable to him? He proudly said yes. Uh huh, So, I asked him if he was familiar with the 90/10 principle; that for every step in an energy or food chain only 10 per cent is passed on, the other 90 per cent is lost to heat, friction and waste. Eyes blinking. no response. That is what we are up against.

Yes, Fareed also pollutes Time /Newsweek.
Hes a creep and Muslim as well.
But one of those 2 mags had the cover
'IS USA ISLAMOPHOBIC'!!!!!!!!!! [DUH]

So, MDG, for the U.S. to become energy independent based on natural gas, that would mean, what? Most autos and trucks would have to run on CNG. I suspect that any serious attempt to do so would very quickly drawn down those fracked natural gas reserves, and the price of it would skyrocket. So, the U.S. would then have to pay high oil, gasoline, AND natural gas prices. Lovely.

Meanwhile, atmospheric CO2 would continue chugging along in an upward direction.

Hey Dog, I went to your site and see that you are discussing a book titled "To Smart for Our Own Good." Is that title correct or should it be "Too Smart...?" I realize a case could be made for "To" if the kind of "smart" being referred to is "endure pain" but if that is the case you need to explain it. I found several other typing errors in your commentary as well. As a presidential candidate you need to be more careful.

In LaLa land theres 'BlueBird Liquor'. Online was a
picture of 2 smiling blacks. I assumed they had won Lottery $ as they looked overjoyed.
NO! They were happy because after 3 hours in line they were able to get into the store to buy a ticket! 3 hours to get into BB liquor.
Ya see at the store someone had won 130 million dollars and there have been other winners.

THE NEW CARGO CULT. Wait 3 hours to buy a lotto ticket.

Ah, if the bullshit and hot air from the likes of Yergin, Kudlow, et al, could be collected and used for fuel, we'd have enough to power our fantasy machine for centuries.

Thanks I'll fix it. You're quite right.

Thanks I fixed it. You're quite right.

Your point is taken but is the bar really that high?

As Mike Whitney pointed out the major new credit is for subprime auto loans which were exempted due to pressure from the Auto Addiction Lobby from the new
financial regulations, weak as they are.

I suspect there will be a lot of these gas-guzzlers repossessed with no buyers in sight.

That's not made up. It's a fairly common word, or at least it was, until the 21st century of lost literary ability.

Jim,

Marvelous Monday metaphors. Wonderful writing. I am amazed and appreciative of your reliable Monday morning offerings.

I have lived in countries where electricity was rationed and it works out well. So, when you say:

Shale oil production is approaching half a million barrels a day. That's about 45 minutes of daily go-power. It might go up to an hour-and-a-half...
that seems doable.

An hour from shale. An hour from coal. An hour from natgas. An hour from petroleum. An hour from solar. An hour from wind. Seems we could easily do six hours a day (or night).

I got along fine on four hours a day in South America. Quality of life actually improves. You organize time better. You rediscover the pleasure of reading books, talking to people, etc.

...if one is dishonest as Kudlow has clearly identified himself to be.
===========

I don't know if dishonest is the right word but leave it to Jim to come up with the perfect descriptor, "popinjay." I would have bet serious money that Larry was gay but I googled his bio and found he is/was a thrice married coke head. See below:

Kudlow converted to Catholicism and entered a twelve-step program to deal with his addictions to cocaine and alcohol in the mid-1990s. Kudlow was persuaded to convert to Catholicism by Father C. John McCloskey III.[18]

Kudlow has been married three times, most recently in 1986 to Judith Pond. Kudlow lives in Redding in Fairfield County in southwestern Connecticut. His hobbies include tennis and golf[citation needed]. He had hip replacement surgery in mid July 2005.[citation needed]

"Meanwhile, black Americans are on the edge of rebellion over the Trayvon Martin case (and who cna blame them?)"
Who can blame them? How about anyone that believes we are better off living in a society that operates under the rule of law instead of mob rule?
From what I have read there is enough evidence to suggest that Trayvon initiated the physical confrontation. If that turns out to be true then Zimmerman could have been justified in using deadly force.
This is far from a clear case of racism as the media wants to portray it. Instead of fanning the flames we should be encouraging those that wish to incite violence to take a look at the facts.

What the hell does Fareed Zakaria's religion have to do with this, Antisoak?

And we keep growing, and growing, and growing our population with outrageous immigration and refugee ceilings. Worse, most come with cultural edicts of fertilizing every egg to come down a woman's fllopian tube. Oh, I forgot; techno-triuphalism will take care of all such issues!

Kaiho,

Thanks. Aside from the frakking environmental problems themselves, I'm even more concerned about natural gas' contribution to Global Warming. I hope that you and others more knowledgeable on the topic can write more about it.

prestidigitate -To perform magic with the hands or using sleight of hand.


Had recently heard that the Exxon Valdez was sold for scrap. Apparently steel is getting more expensive to process. All those shiny new V8's will do fine until theres no fuel to recycle them with. Ah such bittersweet endings!

People rationalize the continual purchase of gasoline for gas guzzlers (or not) in some of the following ways:

*Avoid the five dollar cup of Starbucks and settle for a 7/11 special instead.
*Avoid the 7/11 special and bring their own from home.
*Begin cutting back of the amount of coffee they drink and bring from home.
*Begin cutting back on the amount of coffee they buy.

Eventually, a dog-chasing-its-own-tail dynamic is in effect; peripheral multipliers begin to divide themselves into economic black holes as gas prices rise. Although consumer demand for gasoline remains somewhat unaffected in the initial stages - people have to get to work after all - demand for other products begins to wane. Pretty soon the Starbucks and grocery store employee have lost their jobs and they no longer have a need to drive to work, or to their favorite place to spend disposable income.

It’s an economic death spiral.

Bought a 2012 Honda Civic that runs on compressed nat gas only, and I love it, probably wouldn't have bought it if not for reading jhk for years. fueling stations are not a problem for Utah for the most part, You do have to plan fuel stops and detours could be a problem on long trips. went from slc to st. george (300 miles) for $12.00 and only one stop in between. could go to Los Angeles, but forget about Pheonix or Denver. Would like more talk of nat gas on this site, One thing that suprised me that I learned lately is that our local bus company (UTA) doesn't have any buses that run on nat gas, diesel only, but I'm thankfull that the garbage companies have the foresight to be adding nat gas trucks to their fleets, could get stinky during a diesel fuel shortage.

you really are a clown if you don't even bother
to check if the word exists b4 disparaging jhk.

jeezis, ever tried google?

All we have to worry about is filling up the cars with some kind of Go Juice. Forget climate change, pollution, nuclear proliferation and contamination, desertification, overpopulation, food shortages, political revolutions, the gigantic island of plastic in the Pacific, rising oceans, melting glaciers, the financial Ponzi scheme that is the world economy, austerity, and all that irrelevant business. As long as 'Mericans can fill up the tank and drive to the Quick E Mart, ALL IS WELL!

anti soak, you seem particularly vociferous today, even for you. Something bad happen over the weekend?

How come all your rationalizations involve coffee? I'm not criticizing, just wondering. :)

You can always count on soaky making irrelevant, fearmongering comments about other people's race and religion. Anyone who isn't like him is a bugaboo. He's a lil scaredy cat, poor thing. It is a real wonder he even gets out of bed in the morning.

Kudlow is a complete mutant greedhead idiot. Why anyone listens to that balding money grubbing fruitcake just tells us how many idiots occupy this country.

"Hes a creep and Muslim as well."

Oh, but to your pea-sized brain, isn't that completely redundant?

MDG,

As far as global warming goes, 500 ppm CO2 by 2100 is already baked in the cake. After the failure of Copenhagen 2009, world leaders committed themselves to a carbon-intensive strategy for powering the world economy. The only way to bring global warming under a measure of control would be a firm commitment to leave all this expensive-to-produce oil and nat gas in the ground, but the world-wide trend is in exactly the opposite direction.

How long will they " Keep on Truckin' ? "

Actually as Jim Kunstler has pointed out for years there is another option to get around without burning 4-5-6- $7 gasoline in autos. Use Green Transit!


For myself with Bush Jr's income tax rebate I bought myself a folding bike which is allowed on all NYC area trains. (and buses in theory although where would you put it without a bike rack???)
My community fought the 40% train cuts to our town initiated by neo-liberal Gov Corzine in 2008 and restored enough of our trains that I can walk to my train station. Total monthly cost for my commute to work? Only $100 per month after the pretax transit benefit! Which I can also use to ride the train 24x7 which I do whenever possible.


When are Americans going to insist we need to just RUN THE TRAINS we already have??!!


As I have pointed out before, the US has a lot more potential for Green transit than the Auto Addiction pushers ever let us know - a Brookings study May, 2011 found that 70% of working age Americans in 100 US Metro areas ALREADY live only 3/4ths mile from a Transit stop. However due to the lack of service only 30% can get to a job in less than 90 minutes and that is during peak service hours.


See http://www.brookings.edu/reports/2011/0512_jobs_and_transit.aspx


for details...

I suppose I have been cut off too many times by aggressive drivers juiced up on java. But it could be anything. Instead of driving to the gym, people might buy their own piece of exercise equipment to work out on at home, saving both gas and gym dues.

As an aside, have you seen the price of automobile tires as a result of oil prices - ouch!

Unthinkable: Should the desperation provoke monopolizing Iran, the air and seacraft alone could bring this baby to its knees faster than any natural devolution would.

For those able to invest in an alternative you have a narrow window of opportunity to equip yourself with a very different transportation mode. A relatively small number of electric cars are now available for lease or purchase. A few more will become available before the overall energy/capital collapse precludes further progress.

The Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi MIEV are almost totally independent of the oil and gas industry (but only on the user end). Check out the myleaf forum for many happy stories from people paying less than 4 cents per mile instead of 20+ and rising rapidly. Oh, and no oil (again) changes, mufflers, timing belts, valve adjustments, etc. Some of these people have also invested in PV for their homes and are now running both house and car for next to nothing. Their return on investment can be calculated as around 14% and rising as gas and electric rates continue to increase. Quite an improvement over the Bank or the Stock market and the risk factor is like night/day.

One hundred mile range is pretty good and will look even better as gas goes to $5, then $8, then unavailable. Electricity will be available longer than gas and can be produced from a whole range of domestic resources. Want to go further? Take the train and bring along an Ebike, now also available for a limited time only.

but is the bar really that high?
==============

No, but it desperately needs raising.

I'm even more concerned about natural gas' contribution to Global Warming

stop phreaking wurrying about grobar warming, as they say in china, plant a damn tree or something, they love to soak up the co2 you get all flustered about.

ok the world's getting hotter, so it's gotten hotter and colder and colder and not-so-hot etc.
ad nauseum in the past...and then a meteor took out
90% of all life forms on the planet 65 million years ago (when did humans eradicate 90% of life on the planet?)...and yet here we are with lots of forest, animals etc, everything coming back nicely (yes it has gotten better since the pollution halcyon of the 1960s/70s).

man i am so tyred of troglodyte anti-progress types. yes we are using up oil, and yes there are lots and lots of land usage problems, etc.

and yes there are solutions to them. both sides of the equation - problem/solution - are developing in tandem. it's not a zerosum paradigm, e.g. we have 100 barrels of oil and that's being used up and when it is, bam! game over.

just grow plants and buy local shyte and treat your family and neighbors right and carpool and make a compost heap. nature's a lot stronger than you're feeble mental gyrations on how the world's going to hell in a handbasket.

bet you haven't planted anything in years now have you?

get with it.

And just as bad, neoliberal Gov Cuomo refused to even ask for a Millionaire's Tax and is bragging about how for the 2nd year in a row, by colluding with Teabag Republicans, he has passed a budget on time keeping the MTA on life support instead of expansion.


Meanwhile, despite a local uprising for SOME form of Green public transit on the proposed $5 Billion new Tappan Zee bridge instead of just 2 new highway lanes, Cuomo is also ramming through a highway Auto -addiction only new Tappan Zee bridge with support from the Obama administration.

Hi Welles! How's things down in Brazil?

Brazil is going to be the honored country/invited country at this year's International Book Fair in Bogota, Colombia, later this month.

Last year I was watching the USA National Book Fair on C-Span and the announcer proudly announced that the Book Fair had expanded to two days.

The annual International Book Fair in Bogota is two weeks long and this year there are 400 cultural events planned during those two weeks. There will be 400 authors from all over the world and dozens of forums and "conversations," i.e. interdisciplinary meetings with the public.

At these events the public interacts with authors of high literary quality of different nationalities, as well as engaging in conversations with historians, philosophers, journalists, etc. at public forums.

Thousands of people line up at the gates of the convention center and pay to get in and have an opportunity to exchange ideas with leading international authors they have read.

The USA is a cultural wasteland compared to South America. Bogota is not called the "Athens of South America" for nothing.

Both Colombia and the USA have their problems with drugs, crime, poverty, etc., but Colombia has the advantage when it comes to cultural and intellectual life. Ni hablar de rumbear!

As I said to MDG, the world's leaders have committed themselves to a carbon-intensive strategy for powering the world's economy to 2100. It's baked in the cake.

Welles,

You make some good points but you come off pretty cavalier at the same time and I'll tell you why I think so.

You don't acknowledge the potential for catastrophe in the lag time between conceiving an idea/solution and actualizing it.

And let's face it, those bright enough to actually realize a solution to the oil issue are probably bright enough to realize there was a problem coming down the road long ago. Now I recall Jimmy Carter mentioning this issue way back in the late 70s and still no real viable solution is available despite, as you assert, the incredible profits to be made.

Can you point to something more concrete than Okie optimism?

prestidigitate to perform a bit of MAGIC

Bogota is not called the "Athens of South America" for nothing.
===========

Whoever (whomever?) said Bogota is the "Athens of South America" must have been thinking of an Athens of long long ago because Athens today is an effed-up shithole.

The Nissan Leaf and Mitsubishi MIEV are almost totally independent of the oil and gas industry (but only on the user end). Check out the myleaf forum for many happy stories from people paying less than 4 cents per mile instead of 20+ and rising rapidly.

That 4 cents per mile for the Nissan Leaf is, of course, based on current electricity prices. As oil and gas goes up, that price will go up as well. Still, a Nissan Leaf can be a good option for some people.

For simple commuting, though, it's hard to beat a Vespa scooter or Honda 250cc motorcycle (70-90 mpg).

Always wear your helmet.

Appreciate your curmudgeonly optimism, welles. Though I take issue with the idea that there are man-made "solutions" to all of the man-made "problems" which are out there. To put it bluntly, there is no way that you could know this with any confidence. Only time will tell, and berating people to compost and carpool ain't going to cut it. Whether or not there are workable solutions that can be implemented is highly sensitive to the particular parameters of any given problem. Read "The Ingenuity Gap" on this matter (fascinating book).

And if you take the somewhat long view, say a couple hundred years, I don't see how you look at the mess we've already made of the planet in
the rather historically short period of industrialization and determine that we'll muddle through just fine going forward, especially considering that current population levels are not
sustainable (not even close really). From what I see, especially regarding the so-called "externalities" like pollution and global
warming, we're going in exactly the opposite (and wrong) direction.

Does all that mean that the world will end? No, probably not. I imagine humans will be around for some time. However, if it went that way, Nature doesn't care. Planets abundant in water with a breathable atmosphere that can support life are not a statistically favored configuration. Most of the universe is a
barren, lifeless wasteland, and if that's what the earth gets turned into via our civilization, that would be fine and dandy as far as
Nature is concerned.

It's always been that way, Jim.

I live in Montana as you know. Montana has always been a place of geologically-based scams.

You know about "salting" a mine to convince investors of a really hot property right? But it is just a sham, the real money to be made isn't the gold at all, it's bilking investors and then absconding with the cashbox.

So these oil guys are really just verbally "salting" the oil fields, convincing investors to keep pumping in money.

In geological ventures (mining, energy, etc.) the bonanza strike is the first wave. Then improvements in technology and surges in market prices keep things going. But at the end, it's all salting the mine.

Welles,

Regarding your comments on global warming: thank you for providing today's comic relief.

NBC admits that they doctored the George Zimmerman tape. The dipatcher asked him the race -he didn't just say a Black up to no good. They are "shocked" and promise "an internal investigation". Now you see Turk, normal people are concerned when the Media starts making shit up. Pea Brains like you don't even understand what all the fuss is about.

Stay strong Welles. Thank you for standing up against the Global Terror of the Man Made Global Warming Cult. They admit now they want to lock up "deniers" and that all people should be forced to live in cities - except for the Elite no doubt.

Right, Vlad. The glaciers aren't melting and neither is the permafrost. The ocean levels will not rise. Global average temperatures are not going up. All 99% of climate scientists who agree on this issue are part of a global conspiracy that wants to make you live in an urban slum. That's because it is so easy to get scientists to agree on an issue with 90%+ consensus. You must know this, being such a well-connected insider.

What I understand is that you're defending some trigger-happy, self-appointed vigilante shlub who decided that a kid in a hoodie going home with a bag of Skittles needed to be gunned down for no good reason, other than that he "looked suspicious." Do I have that right? Fill me in on the details, because I assume you've got all of them, like usual, unlike the rest of us blind, uninformed loony liberals.

Or have you stumbled upon yet another one of your vast Left Wing conspiracies?

And, BTW, what does this topic have to do with anything we've been talking about here, anyways?

"NBC admits that they doctored the George Zimmerman tape."

*shrugs*

Vlad doctors posts on kunstler.com every week.

"normal people are concerned when the Media starts making s*** up"

I think that's quite a stretch to identify yourself with "normal people", Vladski.

Good to see that Vlad has showed up again for his weekly whupping. Too bad he never admits defeat, like the Black Knight from Monty Python.

"Come back here. I'll bite your knees off!"

JHK: Thanks to all readers for sending many kind and thoughtful letters about cholesterol, diet, statins, doctors, and the medical racket in response to my two previous blogs on those subjects.

South Beach Diet, JHK. It really works. And without organ meats of any kind. :-)

Controlled carb. Not low carb.

True, but the present 5-1 cost ratio will continue and probably improve as gas prices go up faster than electrons. Plus I can make my own electricity but I can't make my own gas, at least not easily.

Scooters are great - my Chinese Honda clone is coming out of winter storage today. Big savings on parking, too. In town I can park for free on the sidewalk, as long as it is behind the property line (entry and window alcoves of large buildings). Helmets, flags and rugged clothing are musts.

Vlad, you're nuts. You're off your rocker.

Now, please be so kind as to eat every single one of those little cubes of tofu in your thrice-daily portions of miso soup.

Japanese people are counting on you to stick with the program.

Global warming is happening. There is no doubt about it, though because some areas getting warmer causes others to get colder, at least temporarily, the effects are rather a bit more complicated than most laymen can understand.

But to say that some consensus has been reached on what should be done about it is laughable. Science is generally descriptive and not prescriptive. The solutions fall under the realm of politics.

Me, I make no prescriptions, because I believe it is futile to do so. Even if some countries adhere to agreements to control global warming, many others won't, including the important ones like China and India, which basically can't throttle their carbon emissions without torpedoing their developing economies. How many new coal-powered power stations is China bringing online every WEEK? It is a basic "tragedy of the commons" situation, where one more sheep is equivalent to X amount of additional carbon emissions. And since the commons is actually the earth's atmosphere, there's no good way to control who does what to it.

So I'm not going to go tell anyone to go live in an urban area because of Global Warming. Nor would I say that the "deniers" should be locked up. I haven't actually heard many people arguing for either of those positions (actually never heard ANYONE who believed in GW saying either of these things), so I'm not sure where anyone would get the idea that those who know Global Warming is happening have much of any overlap with those two ideas.

So Do What Thou Wilt, Vlad. I ain't gonna stop you.

Not to worry; A talking head on CNBC just this morning stated that we (the USA) are in the strongest economy in the past 50 years.

The future is bright, the outlook is positive! Forget about all the stuff that has happened since 2008! All problems have been solved, all fears have been allayed!

Oh, gee, ya think?!

Interesting article by Bill McKibben:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2012/feb/07/why-energy-industry-so-invested-climate-denail

The most striking part is the photo of the Western Hemisphere in January 2012. A lot of change since 1972...

Vlad Krantz is the "black sheep" of CFN, though somehow, given his views on race, I think he would take offense to that analogy.

"Again - Obama is Luo for Hindenburg, and you all know who succeeded that German president."

Ummmm......Lakehurst?

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." - Upton Sinclair

McKibben's article makes abundantly clear that, for the fossil fuel companies themselves, their denial is a classic example of the above quote in action.

Bill Clintons talking about the case'. I assume in hopes the spin will favor BHO.
Odd since theres talk [obama files.com] That Obamas
people engaged in voter fraud against Hillary!

I saw a Blog recently that happily declared:
DOW WAY UP SINCE OBAMA ELECTED!!! WOW O WOW.

For simple commuting, though, it's hard to beat a Vespa scooter or Honda 250cc motorcycle (70-90 mpg).
===========

Yeah, weather permitting.

It's also important to remember that, now that both China and India are beginning to get real control on their sulfur dioxide/trioxide emissions, global warming is likely to quickly get much worse. As the cooling effect of sulfur is removed, global temperature should jump sharply.

Something similar happened when North America and Western Europe successfully scrubbed sulfur from power plant and auto emissions in the 1970's-1980's.

Beliefs [religion] make all the difference, in some cases.
Does that answer yr question?
And do you believe in hell? You used the word?

Years ago, we stopped voting for anyone associated with the two major parties, learned how to take care of ourselves with herbs and supplements and other natural methods, then moved out of suburbia onto very rural property(four years ago), stocked food and fuel, learned to garden (poorly so far), invested in solar, wind and wells on our property, acquired the means to defend above, got out of the banks, got some of the yellow stuff, use cash when possible, support smaller growers, got a gas efficient car to use when we don't have to use the gas guzzling truck.

We are older, and we have worked our arses off. Still we worry that when the shtf we have serious vulnerabilities e.g. inadequate skills to handle possible power equipment breakdowns, and insufficient personnel for effective defense. What is very satisfying to us is that when the storm hits, we won't be sitting there, having done nothing. And we had big miracles along the way- once we started to take very committed action, a benign power seemed to help us along.

Do what you can every day. Take action of some kind in the right direction. That's all anyone can do and it adds up.

To all the guys with gas guzzling trucks with big engines...do you know that you have the ideal vehicle to convert to scrap wood as your fuel source?

Wood Gas, a friend lent me his Mother Earth News. In it an article with details about converting your truck to wood gas.

Here's a link someone sent me:

http://www.motherearthnews.com/energy-matters/84-mph-wood-gas-truck-zb0z11zroc.aspx

Yes, here in West LA area Yoga is BIG! I wonder why these folks keep going to classes, year after year.
One told me ' I get a better workout'!
Well if s/he walked that hour they drove to class that would be quite a workout.

Did you mention something about the Grateful Dead?
friends of mine had worked for them long ago.

So I know this might come as a shock to you soaky, but some people like to go out and interact socially with others, including in their yoga and exercise classes. Not everyone is content to sit in their apartment day after day, trolling the internet with grammatically questionable postings to CFN.

I guess some of the yoga types probably get all preachy about being "green" and so forth, even though they drive to class, but that's just Americans for you. We're generally a bunch of navel-gazing hypocrites.

You da man!

Er...lady.

to describe current day Athens as an "an effed-up shit hole" is not accurate.
==========

Unfortunately, it is very accurate. It was one of the places I had hoped to see before I die but no longer.

My son Thom, who finds it difficult to say anything disparaging about any person, place or thing (bless his liberal heart), took a vacation to Greece with his girlfriend about 1.5 years ago. After a simple parsing of Thom's good natured descriptions one sees clearly that Athens is filthy, the people are lazy and everything operates innefficiently. There is a great excess of socialistic free-lunchism.

As to my use of "shithole" as a single word, I choose, in this instance, to think of the word as one single noun as opposed to "shit" as an adjective modifying the noun "hole." Similarly, I would consider "shithole" as a single adjective if I were to say, for example, Athens is a shithole city. I would agree with you, however, that the opening in the ground under an outhouse is a "shit hole."

Meanwhile the police can now strip search you for any offence however slight, even jaywalking or a burnt out taillight bulb:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/03/us/justices-approve-strip-searches-for-any-offense.html

They are already widely and aggressively tracking cellphones for which they do not need a warrant:

And a corporation is a person. H--y F--k!

She doesn't say much about community, though, or even simple teamwork. Gen. Patton had a point when he said

Now, an army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality stuff is a bunch of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that stuff about individuality for the Saturday Evening Post [or the Mother Earth News, I might add], don't know anything more about real battle than they do about fornicating.

Isolated, individualist survivalist compounds can easily be surrounded and starved out, if TSHTF.

C'mon people.

This whole peak oil situation and coming changes as a result is putting everyone into introversion and paralysis. We're not going back to the 19th century agrarian age.

We'll stop driving so much; we'll move closer to work; we'll live in areas where everything we need is in walkable distance; we'll utilize bikes and scooters; we'll utilize public transportation; there will be more innovation and solutions for transportation than you can imagine; etc.

Despite all of man's folly and errors there has been so much positive progress. Man has done and achieved miraculous things... and will continue to do so. Man will always have setbacks but usually comes through with amazing solutions.

Rise up out of this paralysis. Be productive and get on with your lives and make a better world.

An Inquiring Mind, so you disagree with JHK's contention that everything in the U.S. is now nothing more than "A Matrix of Rackets"

Hmmm.

I choose, in this instance, to think of the word as one single noun as opposed to "shit" as an adjective modifying the noun "hole." Similarly, I would consider "shithole" as a single adjective...

Choose? You choose? This is what is wrong with our society. People take nouns and adjectives and interchange them and treat them as they please.

There is no respect for linguistic authority. You, Q, have said Dictionary.com is your authority and the word shithole does not appear there.

shithole
- no dictionary results

You are willfully abusing the English language. You are ignoring your own chosen source of authority. You are shamefully violating the care for the language that William Safire (may the peace of Allah be upon him) tried to teach you.

People used to have values. People used to have respect. Your behavior is wanton. Disgusting.

AFAIK...

He called his girlfriend and said (basically), "Someone is following me, and I'm scared. What should I do?"

Yeah, that really sounds like someone out looking for trouble...

In a totally related incident, both Skittles and bottled ice tea have been flying off American store shelves these past few weeks.

Ah, your bestest internet friend OEO is back with a new account, after his 30 other ones were blacklisted.

Anyone like to place some bets on how long that will take?

I recently was in the capital of energy illusions - Odessa, TX, deep in the Permian Basin territory - where the predominate talk is rampant about "new" finds in "old" fields. Contrast that with the talk @ the pumps, which was similar to JHK's experience, where there was widespread outrage with surrendering a C-note in exchange for a full tank. I didn't dare tout the frugal consumption patterns of my rental car, a Chevy Cruze which never topped $30 for a fill-up. I know they'd rather not hear it, nor the reality that manifests itself when the "new" finds come up empty, too.

Did you send money for his re-election campaign? They don't listen, otherwise.

Probably not, but starvation will.

If you're willing to broaden your definition of "solution", then I suppose all problems can be solved.

What's this "news" of which you speak? The guy has some marks on the top of his head, which if caused by the scuffle, would have sent him to the hospital. Where's all the blood? Why didn't he go to the hospital and receive 50 stitches for his supposedly severe wounds?

Zimmerman's brother was the only person that claimed he was severely injured that evening, and he's lying. All other witnesses have claimed he was uninjured.

Your attempts to incriminate some poor innocent murdered kid, simply because of the color of his skin, are simply reprehensible, and a new low, which is pretty impressive coming from you.

Steel is up to almost $300. Even our railroads, all both of them, are picking up the old spikes and clips that work loose from the tracks. I wish we had some trains around here. If you're from NYC or LA, it's easy to say "Take the train" or "Take the subway". We don't have any, and neither does most of fly-over country. Also, a large pick-up is necessary for farming. You know, farms where food is produced? It doesn't come from the grocery store, you know. You can't haul fertilizer or hay in a Volt.

We have our newer, very pretty house up for sale, (as in good luck with that) and have made an offer for a 1930s bungalow with natural air circulation and lots of shade. If it can be sufficiently insulated, it should be much cheaper to heat and cool. Even hot, dry Kansas and Oklahoma were bearable if you could get the cooler air of morning and evening inside and block out the hot afternoon temps. The County will hate it because we won't be paying the outrageous taxes on the newer house, but I'll love it. (We kept the seven acres with the pond, gardens, orchard and woods.)

Good luck, Jim, on your health "problems". My great aunt Grace died at 104 with a cholesterol reading of over 300, and most of my aunts and uncles are going strong at 80 and 90+ with very high readings. (Dairy farmers and teachers) Those ages are acceptable to me. Attaboy for standing up to the medical mafia.

You want more talk on NG? I only have one question. Can I get you to pay the increased cost delta for heating my house and cooking my food in the future when you and your fellow NG happy motorists contribute to NG pricing increases?

Ah... that is so much better.

I'm too lazy to look up the actual numbers, but they're easily gotten. The last time I paid attention to the actual number of Americans killed by handguns annually was several years ago, and that number was, I believe, 12,000.

Assuming for the sake of argument that that number is more or less accurate, I'd have to say that included in that number was a certain amount of white-on-black murder, and a certain amount of black-on-white murder. Yet, very,very rarely does such an individual case become a national sensation. As an example, remember the black guy from NYC who was celebrating his imminent marriage and got shot 50 times by the police? That rightly became a sensational news story.

If you look at the Trayvon killing rationally, it was mundane and not spectacular. That is not to say it isn't tragic that a young man lost his life and his family is suffering, or that a situation in which anybody shot and killed is truly mundane, but compared to the spectacular cases, it truly is mundane; it is similar to many of the annual 12,000 murders, almost all of them reported briefly in the local news.

So, the question which ought to be asked is why did this specific killing become such a sensation? Surely other white-on-black shootings occur pretty regularly and they are not a sensation. Off the top of my head, I can think of 2 reasons:

1. Yellow journalism (to bring up color, here) produces beaucoup revenue; and

2. Someone or some group that has media influence wants to foment racial divisiveness. Why? Who knows? Maybe some CFNers can enlighten me, I'd be interested in theories.

And once again we see the court break down along ideological lines in a 5-4 decision. And once again it was the conservative wing of the court -appointed by Republicans - who voted for this abomination.

And why did you forget to mention THAT?

Here in Western Pennsylvania, our corrupt Governor Tom Corrupt-bett has been sucking the milkshake straw of cash brought to him and his Congressional whores by the Marcellus Shale industry. He has allowed them special privileges by forcing all municipalities to adhere to a single set of rules set up by the State Legislature that favors the MS industry. No more local ordinances to regulate and control this drilling and fracking industry in each municipality.

Once the natural gas is dried up and the soil is poisoned by the toxic runoff by the industry, they will go home leaving us to clean up the mess, which will never be cleaned up.

Unthinkable

The “Titanic” was thought unsinkable
(The story’s online, and it’s linkable),
So you just might be sane
If your logical brain
Concludes that extinction is thinkable.

http://benjaminthedonkey-limericksofdoom.blogspot.com/2012/01/unthinkable.html

haha joke's on you pal, as you get taxed to death
to 'save' the planet and have to get 13 authorisations to get a car, then have a 'carbon tax' autodeducted from your salary. and if you
exceed your allotted 'carbon' allowance (haha) you'll get fined.

so you can cancel that trip to see your family, too many miles and co2 emitted (your aged mother can just lump it, the planet's more important than her, and if she dies b4 you see her oh well at least your carbon 'footprint' [hahahahah] wasn't overstepped so you can feel good about that).

oh and you emit co2 when you breathe out so we'll have to tax that or you might have to live fewer years.

...because that's where this is all going. get everyone real sceerd about 'the planet's getting hotter' then bam! they'll do (and pay) anything the appointed gurus (pollys) say.

so enjoy it, while millions of others simply take moderate steps to improve/maintain the environment...easy enough to do.

btw did you get rid of your car yet and give up travel and eating meat (cows belch methane) and using plastics and stop going *anywhere* cuz it's really not necessary and uses fossil fuels and my my heats up kansas' atmosphere.


go back and read The End of Prosperity about how we'd be out of many minerals and metals by the 1980s or 90s.

except the opposite happened

Next, read The Great Depression of 1990 (haha)

...where is that one btw? must've missed it

Next, read the famous comment from IBM's president that there was only a worldwide market for 5 computers (hahahah)

and then that people would never fly.

the road only goes forward.

Ozone,
Thank you for posting LBennet's comment to me. Really appreciate it.

Bustin J, thank you also for your response.

It isn't just CO2 you maroon. It is the entire cornucopia of carbon-based molecules we spew into the atmosphere that causes these problems. And planting a few trees doesn't even come close to being enough to offset this.

Now I'll kindly ignore everything else you have to say on this topic, because obviously, you don't know the first thing about it.

"the road only goes forward."

Says the Roman citizen circa 450 AD.

Or a Mayan just before the Spanish conquest.

You get the idea...

Yep we'll take your word for it then. since you're smarter.

peace peaceniks

So, a couple of books were overly pessimistic and made inaccurate predictions about the future.

Therefore, you conclude that everything is going to be fine, ad infinitum.

I fail to see how that makes any logical sense, whatsoever.

no, if you read my commentz carefully i many tymes say yes oil is being depleted et al.

i am saying we are countering this with changing habits and improved technology.

and the president of IBM and scientists predicting ice ages in the 70's and other learned people saying we're on the eve of destruction are the ones that were/are listened to.

they were flat out wrong.

you very much sound like you listen to these people.

"And why did you forget to mention THAT?"

Well I didn't want to (um) poke a stick in any wasps nests. I can't run very fast. Now I see the British are heading the same way. They are planning to eavesdrop on anybody in the country, anytime, internet, cellphone, whatever.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/03/world/europe/british-government-eavesdropping-plans-draw-protest.html

Pretty soon Big Brother will be watching your every move.

Yeah, I do know more about this than you, apparently, but that's not difficult. Because you don't know even the basic, established scientific facts about this topic, and then you flaunt your ignorance like a badge of honor. (Just plant a couple trees!) Is it hard for you to admit that someone knows more than you on a given topic?

But don't take my word for it that I'm right and you're wrong. Simply google up the latest Climate Change models on the internet. They speak for themselves.

Are they overly pessimistic? Perhaps. But if the scientists are even half right in their predictions for the next 50 to 100 years, there are "interesting" times ahead of us, for sure.

Welles, I never knew you were so technologically progressive. What's going on? I remember how you chortled about being in Brazil while we were stuck here, and you told us to get out of the USA before TSHTF.

You bringing this side of you out has my approval, not that it's important to you. Still, I like to read about something else other than doom and gloom.

I think we'll all go through some hard times and come out the other side fine and dandy - at the worst.

Turk, we ARE going to go through interesting times, but it won't all be bad.

I admit, people tend to get the time scale wrong. They seem to always want to push things forward into their own life span, possibly in order to provoke a sense of urgency. I like to think of +100 or +200 years. What will the planet be like then? What will be the scale of human activity? How much of the nonrenewable resource base will remain? What will be the scale of human civilization? How many people will live on the planet?

Though that may seem like a long time, it is a mere blink of the eye on the geological time scale.

"i am saying we are countering this with changing habits and improved technology."

That is a supremely doubtful conclusion. Even if we are countering "this" (where "this" seems to be a stand in for everything wrong under the sun), there is nothing to me that indicates that the scale of the countermeasures are anywhere close to being sufficient to counteract the environmental effects we've sent into motion.

Here in America, "green" is basically a marketing buzzword. Does it actually make people change their basic behaviors? Nope, not really. Do you think a bit of recycling and planting trees is going to counteract a human-caused global average temperature rise of 2-3 degrees? Really?

But what makes you think otherwise? What makes you so optimistic? What do you see as far as real honest-to-God change in the way humans operate that will avert major catastrophes somewhere down the line? I'm curious, really. This is not the world in which I live.

large-scale tree planting has very positive effects on atmospheric levels of co2.

who said we should only plant a 'few' trees? i'm talking about changes in societal habits. large scale.

and re googling the latest climate change models...whose models? the ones which show no/no appreciable warming?

of course you don't recognize any of them, since you're certain of your knowledge.

we're still waiting for your scientific facts btw, we're about 4-5 posts in and you keep touting your superiority.

ante up with a point backed up with something besides calumny and putting down trees.


the road goes forward.

You guys are such ostriches. Much of the world is already well into the shadow of Peak Oil. Food prices have been rising drastically over the last few years. Fuel prices are going up, with no real end in sight. Revolutions are occurring all across the planet, and do you think these are purely political? If the United States didn't subsidize Egypt, half the country would starve to death. Large parts of Sub-Sarahan Africa are in continual famine and drought, which is only set to get worse as much formly arrable land desertifies in the coming years.

OPEN YOUR EYES.

Overpopulation, Peak Oil, Climate Change, and all the systemic, human-created problems bearing down upon us are already in effect, and here you say, "Oh, yeah, everything is going to be fine." If you step outside the air-conditioned limo of whatever technological utopia that cocoons you, then you would clearly see that things are not fine and haven't been for quite some time.

In time you might come to appreciate Vlad. I mean who else is willing to step back in time and declare that women in lifeboats didn't turn back and save the men freezing to death as a result of their chivalry.

And yet after reading Katha Pollit's brilliant essay " Women and Children First" maybe Vlad is on to something:

" So call Titanic a a woman's fantasy brought to you by a devoted selfless, charming, funny, incredibly handsome lover" and "He had to die" said one friend of mine, "because otherwise he would have disappointed her down the road." LOL!

cars are some 90-95% cleaner than in 1970
yes there are more cars...i get it

the air is demonstrably cleaner than in the late 60s and 70s
yes we still have air pollution...

point is, we keep reacting in positive ways.

Here in America, "green" is basically a marketing buzzword. Does it actually make people change their basic behaviors? Nope, not really. Do you think a bit of recycling and planting trees is going to counteract a human-caused global average temperature rise of 2-3 degrees?


in Germany - a huge country - they recycle some 80% of waste. so YES pelple do change basic behaviours. is that your 'bit of recycling'?

are you going to tell me americanz haven't changed their behaviour at all? so you've never seen recycling trucks/programs/ads, recycling centers employing people, carpooling, bus/bike/train/subway systems hauling millions of people every hour.

and stop it with the 'plant a FEW trees'. that's bogus. EVERY tree/plant planted captures co2, reduces heat gain, purifies the atmosphere.

multiply that by millions of trees, or a billion.

these 'problems' are much more easily solved than you realize. putting up barrels to collect rainwater at 20% of US houses would decrease water usage massively.

retooling houses to make much better usage of gray water would improve that even more.

yes there's costs associated with it. that's the doomer-side brain kicking in, always a problem.

problems get solved.

peace peaceniks


Just got around to reading the new post by Jim. It's amazing in a way but apparently we are really all that stupid. Between our fondness for lightly insulated above grade housing, over-large motor vehicles, and grotesqueries such as incandescant light bulbs, we don't stand a chance. I know people who have actually begun hoarding the old fashioned light bulbs so that they can continue wasting as much electricity as possible for as long as possible, just to prove how retrograde they are. And if you tell them "gasoline is expensive because we're running out" they reply "I don't believe in that shit." What I'd like to know is whose idea was it to make sure that everyone who goes or went to public school should be as much of a dumb-fuck as humanly possible? It would appear to me that a great deal of effort was expended to make people in this country as stupid as possible for some sinister political reason. And so long as natural gas is rafted out to run shit like power plants and truck fleets it's not going to last all that long at least on a historical scale at any rate.

Don't be obtuse, welles. You could stand to research this topic on your own.

Simply google "climate change models" and read up.

Which of them predict no change in average global temperature? I can't find ONE. Did you just make that up? The onus is on you to back up that rather absurd statement with a link or two.

Ah, okay, there is usually a "steady state" line on most of these models, but that is not to be taken as a prediction. It is comparative. I would be hard-pressed to identify even one serious climate scientist who believes that this will actually occur.

I'm sorry. That's facetious. I just had to throw it in there. ;)

Why should you be the only one who gets to flout the Law of Contadiction; to be broad and contain multitudes?

So some things have changed in Germany and the United States over the last couple decades. Fine. I conceed the point. Actually, Germany has been green for some time. They probably invented it.

What about the rest of the world? What about people who don't have the luxury of being "green" in how they live their lives? What about China and its coal plants? Can you plant enough trees to offset the deforestation of the Amazon? What about those living at a subsistence level who cut down your freshly planted tree in order to cook their dinner? Hows does one go about planting trees when one lives in the desert? etc.

You seem to have a lot of simple answers, based on hope and optimism. I have questions, but I don't like the answers. Am I too pessimistic? Perhaps, but I think you go too far the other way. Simply because there are problems doesn't mean that there are easy solutions that can be implemented or at least implemented to the degree that will solve the problem.

And, like I said before, 90% of humanity dying off would be one of Nature's solutions. We just tend not to like that one very much.

"famine....jeez so what's new in africa? move to where the damn food is."

Just this statement alone tells me that you're just making this up as you go along. What country on the planet is going to accept millions of starving African refugees with open arms?

Man predicts consequences and comes up with solutions before the problem manifests. Sometimes Man misses the boat and a crisis arises. This raises his "necessity level" and he is then forced to solve the problem in short order, or create a stop gap measure until the problem can be more effectively handled at a later date. Solutions continue to become more sophisticated.

We've been through ice ages, droughts, famines, pestilences, plagues, world wars, etc. etc.

Have faith.

hahaha, i counter all your poopsy dire forecasts and you simple say 'ok fine, maybe people are recycling 80% of waste' and 'ok maybe a billion-strong population center is shrinking', and 'ok so maybe some things have changed' and then wish for 90% of the population to die off.

and then berate me for being positive, while you'd really be pleased if everyone would just perish! so some bloody ball of rock spinning in empty space could be 'clean'. no truer altruist ever trolled this blog.

The "doomer" label is what people use when confronted with uncomfortable future scenarios, even when these are grounded in science. To wit, Peak Oil is a scientific fact, and the question is only one of timing. Climate Change is well-established and most models predict at least a 2 degree average temperature rise within 100 years, and those are the conservative estimates. So it isn't being a doomer. It is simply confronting the reality of our situation.

I agree with you that thinking about all of this too much tends to paralyze, and that there are actions which can be taken to alleviate the effects. But, as far as I can tell, in the long term, the Ying will not balance out the Yang.

You talk about global overpopulation, as if housing 7-8 billion people on this planet is going to be indefinitely sustainable. I have news for you. The planet is finite, and all nonrenewable resources are, by definition, running out, and rather quickly. This includes all the tasty ones that make modern, interconnected, globalized, industrialized society possible, including oil, natural gas, precious metals, rare earth metals, even water and arable land. How exactly are billions of people supposed to sustain themselves when these things are (more or less) GONE, with hope, optimism, and good intentions?

I should also add: empire collapses, depressions, recessions, currency collapses, deflations, hyper-inflations, fiat money systems, alien invasions, meteror hits, sun spots, epidemics, slavery, religious suppression, ethnic cleansing, etc. etc. etc.

We're pretty resilient, pretty resourceful, pretty strong in the urge to survive department.

I'm not worried. Tough times? Sure. Difficulties? Sure. But we're not going back to the dark ages like all of these gloomer and doomers are salivating over.

Oh global warming is a total fraud (evil vested interests are behind that one). Real science has dispelled this idea over and over.

Over population? Another fraud. This planet will support 50 trillion people. Technology and social evolution will triumph. By then we'll be populating other planets and pulling resources from them.

Have faith.

Now get to work and produce something useful or help someone.

"This planet will support 50 trillion people."

This is a moronic assertion without the slightest support of any scientific field. Thanks for playing.

"By then we'll be populating other planets and pulling resources from them."

"Speak what you think now in hard words and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict everything you said today" - RWE

An inquiring mind is a healthy mind, a survival oriented mind. What is wrong with that. Look up the definition of "faith". I'm not talking from a religious airy-fairy viewpoint. Real faith. Knowledge of yourself and your power.

Vlad, are you jealous? Nothing is stopping others from joining me ... but so far, crickets.

I notice that you say absolutely nothing about the depletion of fossil fuel resources, which is quite telling. Most of the nice things we enjoy about modern life stem from them, in one way or another. Is petroleum somehow replenishable or reusable? If so, I'd like to know.

I never stated that nothing at all would be done. I'm just saying it won't be enough.

And, BTW, thanks for the discussion. This reminds me of old school CFN. :)

Wrong, faith is belief without evidence. Look it up.

Turk,
That would be the oldspider up to his deranged prescriptions again! Notice the "trillions"; soon to reference skyscrapers and other such shit-brained notions, spouted from his SHITHOLE (tm Q) of a cell within ol' Greystone Asylum. He never should have been watching when they ran the Star Trek series; it tied in far to well with his psychotic delusions. And what's with all the Chinese shit?? Can't get enough of seeing himself "in print"? Fu-ucked up! (Maybe he thinks he can really speak Chinese; as Greystone's Premier, that would be a requirement.)

Turkle, you are correct that many resources are finite. Others are renewable. What we will definitely need to do is reduce our level of consumption. Conservation will buy us time to develop safe, renewable, and sustainable energy, so we can get out of dangerous sources like nukes (see Fukushima).

For example, since 20% of SoCal's energy supposedly comes from nukes that produce dangerous nuclear wastes, the time is right for a conservation campaign to reduce electric usage by 20%. There are relatively painless ways to conserve: LA is possibly the most over-illumined city in the USA.

Why the Troops must come Home and be placed on our Southern Border. And then we must begin to deport the Enemy within.

Also shows Asoka's claims that La Raza is not a Racist Organization are nonsense.

http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=10983


It is exactly this kind of techno-optimist fawning that leads me to believe our civilization is not long for this earth. We have lost all sense of tragedy and limits. We think everything is possible and that all problems are reversible, e.g. have solutions. We think that because we can sustain some activity for a few decades or even a hundred years that we will be able to do it indefinitely. There is a real human tragedy in the making here, the ultimate one, in fact. Civilizations rise and fall, and it will be the same with ours. The fall is going to be harder than in the past because of how high we've gotten (legend of Icarus) and how interconnected the world has become. This isn't some doomer fantasy. It is how history has always progressed.

Will humanity die out completely? That's unlikely. We are a hardly little ape and likely to surive in some form or another for thousands if not millions of years, even if we have to live underground or under the ocean.

But will the current way of doing things and the current population levels be sustained far into the future? I very seriously doubt it, based upon what I know of ecology and other scientific fields.

But, then again, you could be right. Maybe we'll solve all these problems and wrap it all up with a pretty bow. Predicting the future is usually a fool's game. Maybe we'll be riding around in solar-powered, electric hovercrafts and harvesting minerals from the center of the moon. But I'm not counting on it.

Turkle:

The def of faith I'm using is...

Faith as in knowledge of yourself and your capabilities. Not the blind acceptance that religions claim. It is a powerful vibration of energy, the most powerful in the physical universe.

When you have faith (not confidence or hope) that something will happen to you, then you are in the process of manifesting it. Faith is success in another dimension... another arc.

It is and has always been the common denominator of successful people or groups.

Learn it and use it. It's Mind Power.

Read John Kehoe's book "Mind Power".

Hey Welles. Maybe we should hightail it from here, eh?

This non-solution oriented blog is full of major negativity, doom and gloom, despair, etc. It's as if these people are mentally programmed to hope for and expect the demise of humanity. Maybe even relish it?

What a total disappointment this week's blog entry was! The last two or three weeks gave the impression that you were on a new path, re-evaluating previous paths, and that maybe some new insights would be in the works, but no, just the same old, same old. Today you returned to preaching to the same old choir. You pontificated, making your claims as if they were obvious, beyond question, clear and distinct, in no need of evidence or reasoning.

OK, we all sense that the climate is changing, but there is no consensus that "going back" (CO2 reduction) is the path to take. Maybe instead of going back, we adapt, we change, incrementally, as conditions dictate. Why must we all accept your catastrophist perspective and expect doom and destruction in the "near" future? Why can't it be evolutionary? Gas is $4+ today, yesterday it was 2 or 3, and tomorrow maybe 5 or 6, and next year 7 or 8 (it's already that in Europe and people aren't jumping out of windows).

And what should we do anyway? Just stop the entire economy and start anew on some other paradigm? Do you think Rome was built in a day, or that America can be destroyed and re-created in a day? Get real! We're going to continue with the system we have until we can't. This could be a day or a thousand years. Some guy on one of the so-called conservative websites has been predicting $5000 gold for the last 20 years; sooner or later he'll probably be right. Same for you. You've been predicting death and destruction for years, and if we wait long enough you'll probably be right. But, so what?

Anyway, as I said, a big disappointment. May you live long and prosper, but if you're going to peddle the same old crap, why bother?

It is almost like you're programmed to be a thick-headed git.

thats an attempt to answer the question ya posed.

Wrong, Turkle. Faith and belief and very different, epistemologically speaking.

Faith and belief are two closely related concepts that are often understood to be synonymous, though they are distinct.

According to Wilfred Cantwell Smith, in his book Faith and Belief, "belief" involves either lack of certainty about something or neutrality about its correctness.

Thus "John knows Paris is the capital of France" is a statement of certainty; "John believes Paris is the capital of France" indicates uncertainty about the truth of the statement; "John believes Marseilles is the capital of France" indicates either that John is uncertain or that the speaker knows that John is wrong (Faith and Belief, 35).

Faith, on the other hand presupposes a level of certainty, not a level of uncertainty. While some uncertainty may remain, and some level of "belief" may exist, faith presupposes the correctness and truthfulness of some proposition or experience.

An integral part of faith, Smith asserts, is a personal response to that proposition or experience. Faith implies engagement, interaction, while belief involves only an intellectual assertion that something may be true and correct (Ibid., 4-5, 50).

TURKLE:

Man has been on a long evolutionary path towards conquering the physical universe. He's done wonders already. The real game is on a spiritual level... the spiritual being reaching into and withdrawing from the physical universe (life/death cycle) and coming back each time with more understanding and higher evolved.

A Renaissance is occuring spiritually, mentally and emotionally on this planet. There will be great changes. Man will go through heavy and trying periods.

You will become what you think about. You are what you think you are.

Stop focusing and thinking about what you don't want and start focusing on what you do want.

Fossil fuels will be considered a primitive form of energy in the future. We'll have safe forms of nuclear energy and all sorts of other energy forms as we expand our knowledge..

It is like a law of physics, soaky. People from the poor and overpopulated countries will go to the relatively rich and less populated ones, whether or not you formally allow it or not, to wit, the immigration of millions of Mexicans into the states from their overpopulated, impoverished country into the relatively less populated and far more prosperous US and A. That's life. It has been happening for thousands of years and will continue indefinitely. That's why the barbarians invaded Roman. They were rich and had, uh, vast tracts of land. The only thing that is ultimately going to stop this shift is when the relatively rich countries get poor and overpopulated enough that people don't want to go there anymore. Or the borders could be fully militarized and locked down, but that's rather difficult to do in a free, democratic country. If you don't like it, go join the Border Patrol or something, where you can "make a difference."

And can you blame them? If I was born in Haiti, the first thing I would do as an able bodied adult would be to GTF out of there.

Bill Gates has said:
1..Tech will solve the Environmental crisis [at least he admits biosphere is in triage].

2..Nuke Energy is the safest! [a recent statement I saw in Yahoo? news very recently].

Well I just got back from walking the little rat eaters, Jasper and Murray. I can say that Venus, the Goddess of love and Earths sister planet, sits right in the bosom of the Seven Sisters. She outshines them by many orders of magnitude. Still it is quite a fetching site with Jupiter, Mars, Sirius, and the great hunter all doing the sky dance together!

You know what I think about religion, so I won't repeat myself (too much). Suffice to say, "You're wrong." Your stated definitions are not the commonly understood ones. Faith is used to justify belief in God. There is no evidence that supports this belief, hence people's parrot-like refrain that they believe in this fictious entity because they "have faith." Belief justifies faith, and faith justifies belief. It is a nice little tautology. And if that isn't belief without evidence, my stated definition, I'm not sure what is.

TURKLE:

I've made it clear what definition I'm using for "faith". No reason to argue semantics. You understand what I'm saying.

Not sure what to make of this. Do you believe him?

He's a software expert. Why should I believe what he has to say about the climate and energy, especially these kind of flippant assertions? Software is a completely different game than the meat world. There all problems (in the domain at least) really are solvable. You just need to put in the right codes, and, whalla, Facebook.

If he truly believes these things, I'm happy to pidgeonhole him as just another blind, techno-optimist.

I mean, nuclear? Really? After what happened in Japan?! Any moronic monkey can see that wind and solar are far more safe than nuclear, even if they have their own problems of scale and intermitancy. You're never going to make hundreds (if not thousands) of square miles uninhabitable to humans with a wind or solar farm. I mean...duh.

Environmental problems will be "solved" with technology, just like writing some computer code to "solve" the problems of the back office. Presto, chango! As easy as one-two-three. We'll just install a few of those atmospheric processors like in that movie Aliens, minus the, uh, flesh eating xenomorphs with acid for blood. Then we can dump whatever we want into the atmosphere and clean it up later. The future is bright, I tell you what!

Mother Earth Heh? ya gotta love her or she will put you done like the lavae which we are!

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html

sorry should be larva

Is the movie Aliens really a metaphor for the unintended consequences of technology? You terraform a planet and make the atmosphere breathable but didn't think you'd get a spaceship full of facehuggers in the deal, didja!?

Yes, nuclear will prevail. So what about Chernobyl and Fukushima. This happens in the course of progress. Man fails his way to success. (How many airplanes crashed and how many people died as a result as man was perfecting heavier than air flight technology? And look where air travel is today.)

They'll build nuclear plants in the proper locations, they'll be safety factor upon safety factor implemented, they'll use thorium (safer and cheaper) and they'll progress and evolve and evolve. Nuclear waste will be solved too.

Solar and wind will be useful but will never reach a high level of power and will only be a small part of our future energy. New solar will arrive. But these need fossil fuels and rare earth minerals to be manufactured and maintained, so this isn't workable.

It will be a nuclear world. Man will perfect it. Dirty, smelly fossil fuels will be considered prehistoric (no pun intended).

You seem pretty confident. Are you some kind of time traveler from the future? Steven Hawking says that isn't possible, BTW, so my guess is you're just blowing smoke.

I'll take the weekly burial starting early as a complement. I have noticed they like to post after me but to be absolutely sure a proper statistical analysis would be needed. I don't imagine sales of clothes or handbags do very well here. I wonder why they bother?

Turkle, yes I know your stand.

A belief is a superficial mental construct not necessarily based upon experience. I do not hold a belief in my mind that there will be a sunrise tomorrow, but I do have faith (based on previous experience) that we will have a sunrise.

Seems like an important distinction to me, but we will continue to disagree about this, and that is fine.

"So ZaDeekah, why do you pull up this page?" Some of us just like to shoot the shit and bust balls, and also share a little common knowledge.! "Bite me asswipe!" Also, by the way where the fuck did you show up from?"

He wants to license the solution to you and being as he is a believer in technology and a citizen of the world he naturally believes that technology will solve all the problems that technology creates. He can't see that he is a dog chasing his own tail because as Kaiho Iwasaki earlier quoted:

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it."
- Upton Sinclair

Gates does not know he no longer needs a salary and never will though he would strongly disagree. Never has he struck me as one to comprehend introspection and the bigger picture. He knows how to make money win and exploit. To know if there is any more to him I'd have to meet him personally. So far I haven't seen it.

soka, I don't like arguing about definitions of words and concepts when they aren't the commonly understood ones but some arbitrary redefinition based upon personal feelings or some such.

In no way is it an expression of 'faith' to believe that the sun will rise tomorrow, because this assumption is based upon previous experience, which constitutes solid evidence.

If you said that you have 'faith' in Jesus's return to Earth, well, now we're talking.

Not a time traveler. I agree that isn't feasible. I study the human mind and spirit and have performed many experiments in this area (not going to discuss this as my experiences and results wouldn't be accepted) and I've studied a lot of history.

I'm not blowing smoke any more than you are. Just expressing my opinions, just as you are. There is no guarantee that I'm right any more than you are right.

Yet, I think I am right. Otherwise I'd be espousing the opinions that you do.

My difference from you is that I agree with and recognize the situations that you are concerned with, yet I envision solutions for them.

If you actually experienced something like this first hand it would indeed be a game changer, a paradigm shift for you in the realm of spiritual and mental power.

Then you'd have more respect for yourself and faith in you life. You'd understand the ultimate power of thought and see that it is indeed senior to the mechanics of the physical universe.

Hey Turk, I don't know about mataphors but Ripley is hot in her gauchies!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swM6pLxxgWE

I'm too old to be watchin' this shit

It's almost like this Inquiring Mind guy is playing the over-the-top caricature of the opposing point of view game...

But, sadly, I think he is serious.

It's just like you say...we have lost our sense of tragedy and our awareness of limits. Im 27 years old and I see it plainly in my parents' generation. Hubris, plain and simple.

I like to think back to one of my favorite movies: Back to the Future II. Came out around 1989, I think, and featured scenes set in the then-distant future of 2015.

What did the year 2015 look like in this film? We had fusion-powered flying cars, hoverboards (my favorite), capsulized expanding food, and we seemed to have conquered that pesky problem of dust and pollution in general. Incidentally, the communications gadgetry was forecasted quite realistically, but this is about all the filmakers got right.

My point? At the time - just 23 years ago!- everyone thought this conception of 2015 would be proven at least somewhat realistic. Well, hows that looking now?

Just look at the 1930s world's fairs, sci-fi from the 50's, etc.

Many of us are stuck in fantasies of techno-utopianism. We need to take stock of just what technology is and what it isnt.

All arguments, or opinions as you call them, are not equivalent. Some are better than others. I can argue that the moon is made of green cheese, but it is a very poor (and wrong) argument. Someone who said it is made of moon rocks has a much better (and correct) argument. Some opinions are right, and some are wrong. I'm so sorry if that hurts your feelings, but that's life.

Your visions of a George Jetson nuclear future where man is perfected do not even constitute arguments. They are merely delusional ravings based upon wishful thinking and blind optimism. Ditto for your fantasies about limitless nuclear energy and billions of skyscrapers and trillions of humans to go up and down the (presumably nuclear powered) elevators.

What I've been saying in my posts is (primarily) grounded in science, e.g. that there is a predicted rise in global average temperature from GW, extrapolating from current climate conditions and carbon emissions, using scientific modeling. From these models, I can predict that there are likely to be catastrophic changes in climate that will have a huge effect upon humanity.

In this case, my so-called opinions are based upon scientific findings, whereas yours seem to be based on nothing more than a personal desire to see Star Trek come true.

If you can't see the difference between one and the other, it isn't even worth arguing with you.

You said:

We're going to continue with the system we have until we can't.

And then there will be nothing to replace it with and everybody dies. People here want humanity to survive but we have to educate and enlighten people so bullies like you don't decide death for all. We have to do everything we can to soften the coming blow because that is the morally correct human thing to do.

Our claims are not obvious and beyond question. Serious dogs think and question claims all the time. I would like the evidence not to be out there but unfortunately it is. That you do not know of any 'evidence' shows you question nothing.

That was just a stupid movie from idiotic Hollywood. Totally insignificant. Ridiculous concepts. Yet you draw conclusions from it?

As if Science is the end all and be all. The spirit and the mind are senior I'm afraid. They are already discovering that in Quantum Physics.

The ideas that passed for science back in the 1400's and were accepted and presented by the "great minds" of the day now turn out to be fairy tales and BS. Don't you think that can still happen?

I'm not as advanced as you.

You said: The ultimate power of thought and see that it is indeed senior to the mechanics of the physical universe.

I'm not advanced enough to go without food shelter and clothing and use thoughts to nourish and sustain me as you can. I find I need real food or I won't be thinking about anything.

I also wish my knowledge of science technology and man was as developed as yours because my thoughts get blocked by the physical laws of the universe when I think of fanciful cornucopian technical delights that could turn the vicious circle one more time.

It is completely insane to think that only the mind limits the possiblities of what can be done. That's the philosophical territory of religious nuts, insane dictators, and the mentally ill. The universe is governed by laws that you and I cannot change with our minds, bodies, actions, or technology. If my mind decides that I can fly, and then I jump out a 10 story window, no matter how hard I try, I will end up splattered on the ground below. That's the universe at work: laws and limits. You cannot overcome them. You work within and with them.

Take your example of air travel, which is, I agree, an amazing technical accomplishment. But it is all based upon physics, materials engineering, and other hard sciences. We don't fly because we will ourselves above nature with our minds. Or, at least I don't. Too tiring, for one. My arms start to cramp up after about 5 minutes of hovering like a hummingbird.

Similarly, flying birds have nothing special in their minds that allows them to fly and break any basic laws of physics. Their bodies were just engineered that way by good old Evolution.

Am I getting through here? Probably not...

If that were the case, I would have already reached across time and space using my mental fusion with the internet to slap you in the face, in order to knock some sense into you.

Or maybe I'm just not thinking hard enough...

Then can you use the amazing powers of your advanced, superior mind to conjure me up a ham sandwich right now? I'm getting rather hungry.

I use the film to illustrate the absurdity of the attitudes and beliefs underlying your techno-utopian fantasies. The attitudes and beliefs that made it seem like a realistic forecast of the future.

Is that so hard to understand?

"The spirit and the mind are senior I'm afraid. They are already discovering that in Quantum Physics."

Christ...

Thorium is happening only in Elon Musk's mind, An Inquiring Mind. In terms of nuclear in the real world, passively cooled LWR is where the technology is headed.

http://www.nuscalepower.com/ot-How-NuScale-Technology-Works.php

But, by-and-large, fossil fuels is what the world's leaders have put their chips on to power the world economy out to 2100. 500 ppm CO2 is baked-in-the-cake.

Weird things start happening up around 500 ppm CO2.

Japanese girls go for the Black Look - big use of tanning salons. Just heard today that their advent in the 70's coincided with huge increase in melanoma. In Japan too I wonder? Whites are more vulnerable of course, but they said that when dark skinned people get it, they don't respond to treatment as well.

http://amren.com/news/2012/04/black-lifestyle-in-japan/

Turkle:

Here is key data regarding the whole concept of "global warming"... which proves that it is a fraud and based on the hidden agenda of certain individuals.

If you have fixed ideas and a strong intention "to be right" and an agenda to support, then don't bother listening as you have a barrier to learning. If you have an open mind by all means listen to the interview.

http://www.financialsense.com/financial-sense-newshour/in-depth/2009/10/24/ian-plimer/heaven-and-earth

I never said that. You misunderstand me. Of course there are the laws of the physical universe. Man uses them to conquer the physical universe.

There are other universes.

Do you want mustard on that ham sandwich?

Kaiho,

Look at my full sentence...

they'll use thorium (safer and cheaper) and they'll progress and evolve and evolve.

If thorium doesn't work they'll find something that does. Man will go through the same process as he did with steam, electricty, air flight, space travel, etc. etc.

He'll "fail" his way to success.

It took Edison 3,000 attempts to get the light bulb to work.

In no way is it an expression of 'faith' to believe that the sun will rise tomorrow, because this assumption is based upon previous experience, which constitutes solid evidence.

==============

I cannot know with 100% certainty that the sun will rise tomorrow.

There is no belief system that can provide me 100% certainty. Believing is shallow and ineffectual anyway.

I am part of a vast, vast cosmos. I am in control of only a tiny set of variables. I do not in fact know what is going to happen next.

However, based upon previous experience, I have faith that the sun will rise tomorrow ...

I could be wrong.

But do we really have enough to get the PPM even that high? I know if all the coal were burned along with all oil and gas we might get that high but a much coal is actually going to turn out to be unrecoverable, too hard to get.

I find it interesting how discussions of resource depletion pretty much get turned around to banter over climate change. The solution to both problems have much in common but the issues and implications are not exactly the same.

It seems climate change is much easier to talk about, less scary.

Of course overpopulation hardly ever gets mentioned at all.

What do you think?

But the point is that there should be much more R&D funding for thorium reactors. You are correct where nuclear technology is currently heading, but that doesn't make it a smart move. Unfortunately, TPTB have a stake in the current path and don't want to head off in different directions.

Fusion technology hasn't yet been perfected, but it doesn't mean that it can't, even if it takes another 50-75 years (I doubt it will take that long, as computers become more powerful, much experimentation will be done via modeling to overcome the plasma bottle problem). So why can't thorium reactors be developed in less time? The physics is known, it's just the engineering that needs developing - I think. It seems less intractable than fusion issues.

Well, Asoka, FYI,I just removed the sun. Forecast for tomorrow: Very dark and cold.

No matter which direction nuclear goes, there's still those Three Degrees of Warming to consider:

http://www.global-greenhouse-warming.com/3-degrees.html

Lovelock has the most likely global warming scenario out to 2100 nailed down pretty well, I think.

Your expert is a paid shill. Are you?

From the article:

"Both of us pressed him to answer the question. So Plimer said that neither of us had read his book. We both replied that we had and pressed him again."

Oh, yes we do have enough carbon to get the ppm that high.

In addition to world leaders' firm commitment to fully process all the Canadian tar sands oil and everything that remains in the Middle East, all that carbon in the warming Siberian and Alaskan permafrost is in the process of being unlocked as we speak.

And, of course, don't forget all those methane hydrates in the ocean, just waiting to melt and outgas into the atmosphere.

By 2100, we'll be back in the Eocene.

LOL!

But there are people who believe three days of darkness will happen this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBJEm1BFPaw

Belief can be completely detached from empirical evidence, just a mental construct. Faith cannot be detached from experience.

Hey why don't you just give up now and save yourself the trouble. Shoot yourself in the head.

It's been fun. This is a site filled with people stuck in doom and gloom who have no faith in themselves or humanity. Completely bogged down by "science" and "limitations" with no acceptance of the fact that humanity is always changing and evolving and solving.

Your leader, JHK is a hyper-critical and negative individual. Look what that state of mind has done to his health. If someone can't take care of and have a healthy personal environment (body), I surely wouldn't be listening to their thoughts, ideas and projections about the outlying environment.

I only read him because he is a true wordsmith and I enjoy and laugh at his prose, imagery and extended vocabulary. Yet, I don't agree with his fatalism.

I've learned a long time ago that I get a lot further and do a lot better in life if I put my attention on what I want and not on what I don't want. The power of thought and intention is something that many people have no awareness of. They will as time goes by and it becomes agreed upon "science".

I'm willing to experience what is coming. I will take responsibility for it. I know we'll overcome our obstacles, no matter the setbacks or difficulties.

I'm not planning on pushing a plow around in a field, raising my own chickens, reading by candle or lamp light, making my way only because I have gold and silver coins, or driving a Fred Flintstone car. If that's what you want then keep thinking about it.

Adios amigos!

Our educational system has failed to pass on some basic truths, such as the Laws of Thermodynamics and the concept of Entropy. If you burn your kitchen chair you will not only never sit in it again you will never be able to recreate it from the ashes. We will never be able to stuff all the radioactive particles back into the Fukushima reactors. Once the easily obtained oil has been pumped and burned it is gone forever and the harder stuff will soon bump up against the EROI barrier where it might as well not exist at all.

The tradition of American exceptionalism has lead to the era of the naive techno-optimists who keep repeating "they'll think of something" but have no idea what that might be. We have squandered much of our fossil fuel inheritance racing 500hp race cars in circles and making plastic pumpkins and disposable diapers. The problem with new sources of energy is that they all require massive support from cheap oil to build or manufacture. The nuclear industry is highly dependent on oil to mine, refine, transport and fabricate fuel rods, not to mention building the reactors and dealing with the tons of poison left over.

Time is not unlimited, choices must be made. If we don't possess the basic understanding or political will to make the right choices then we will make the wrong ones. As we are doing right now with our failure to reduce CO2 emissions - we are actually increasing them. But denial comes easiest (esp if your salary rides on it) - maybe you'd like to invest in this cold fusion black box I have in the basement?

Yes, that pesky permafrost. Thanks

i really love the conversations today. Technology: Triumph or doom?

My $.02: The stock market is analogous to technology. The stock market has been going up since 2009 and will continue to do so until it doesn't; technology will continue to advance until it doesn't. Go with the trend.

Man is a problem-solver and a tool-maker. It's hard-wired into the species since it developed a large pre-frontal cortex and opposable thumbs. We may not act wisely or timely, but we've solved most of our problems in the past. Go with the trend - there's no reason to believe we won't solve our current problems.

To those who think our problems are unsolvable, I say name me a real problem facing mankind, and I can give you a solution. It's not the science and technology that limits us, but the will and the proper direction. No, I'm not into New-Age stuff, but people can do more than they thought possible if they don't give up.

If I'm wrong, then we'll all die, but at least I won't be waking up every day with a cloud of dread over me. And talking about the stock market,I will hedge my survival bets.

Turk is very experienced in twisting others words.
Hes a genius in some ways.

Cute, yeah Gates is a jerk.

not give the jobs to Us citizens.
And his 'charity' is to Africa.

"Our educational system has failed to pass on some basic truths, such as the Laws of Thermodynamics and the concept of Entropy."

I could not agree more and am delighted someone finally said entropy. Knowledge of entropy is essential to really understand the solutions. The book I'm reading "Too Smart For Our Own Good" begins talking about it in chapter one - Scientific Ground Rules.

Oops! I missed this post. Just read the article. Interesting. I'll have to watch the video interview.

I'm not a shill.

There have been global warmings before. There weren't cars, dry cleaners or factories around then. Explain that.

The pollutants that man is sending into the atmosphere are not a positive thing, and they will be reduced as we go forward, and progress is already being made in this area.

The seas are not going to cover the continents and the whole planet isn't going into a century cycle of drought and we are not going to perish. I know that is unfortunate for the doomers and gloomers.

Consider this: The FEC, a private railroad, is about to drop $1 billion a passenger route between Miami and Orlando.

Someone clearly understands where fuel prices are headed and what it will do to driving. Orlando is the #1 most visited city in the US and Miami is #5; there are about 50 million trips every year between the 2 cities. The FEC was originally started by Henry Flagler who made his first fortune in oil, then built a railroad all the way down to the Florida Keys.

" You will become what you think about. You are what you think you are."

This is not exactly new territory Inquiring Mind. In fact it's that same old regurgitated optimism from the various New Age seminar scrap bins that have been going on for the last few decades, give or take. A sales pitch designed to delude the individual that they can transform themselves into autonomous magicians unaffected by greater societal envelopment. "

And you too will be able to walk barefoot...blah,blah,blah.

It's also a social hierarchy propaganda tool designed to divert mass consciousness from the stratifying structures of society and lay all blame on the lone individual for success or failure. Because, as you assert, "you are what you think you are". And if things go sour in life, well look no further than oneself.

In my opinion,what you're pumping is a rather perverse and deluded form of solipsism.

Solipsism:
1.Philosophy . the theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist.
2.
extreme preoccupation with and indulgence of one's feelings, desires, etc.; egoistic self-absorption.

Dear 3rd,

I'm glad you've finally acknowledged my genius and sorry if I've "twisted your words". Perhaps if you provide an example of such I can untwist them for you.

I like the way you roll, brother.

Man I can't get off this site...

Black Stud:
I'm not a new age jerk. And none of what you say describes me.

Just put it all in perspective and don't try to twist my words or make me look like an idiot, which seems to be the game on this site.

All I'm saying is mind power, positive thinking, persistence and faith in myself and abilities have proven to be much more workable than with having the opposite mindset. I find that the more responsibility I take the better things go for me.

I'm not saying that I walk through walls, have X-ray vision or have the power to run my internal combustion engine on happy thoughts. Geeesh!

Your post seems to me to echo the longtime disrespect between scientists and engineers. All great ideas have begun with a thought. Einstein used thought experiments to develop general relativity. Even practical reactors must begin their existence with a paper and pencil. The truth is that engineers wouldn't have anything to build without someone putting a concept on paper, and scientists wouldn't see their ideas put to use without engineers.

Hyman Rickover was a brilliant man. His disdain wasn't heaped on scientists, but rather politicians. He was a harsh, impatient man who didn't suffer fools at all.

"There have been global warmings before. There weren't cars, dry cleaners or factories around then. Explain that."

Is your brain not wired correctly or what? I'm beginning to lose count of all the logical fallacies you've committed on here, just in one day.

Just because A causes B in one instance doesn't mean that A is the one and only possible cause when B occurs at some other time and place.

To wit, say that Inquiring Mind goes sailing off of a building because someone pushed him (I won't name names), and his mental powers aren't sufficient to levitate himself so he splatters all over the sidewalk.

This doesn't indicate that someone pushing you is the only way to go flying off a building. You could have jumped or perhaps been buffeted by a strong wind. Or maybe you slipped and fell.

Get it?

No one is denying that GW has occurred in the past. The question is what causes it now? And mainstream science argues that mans' activities are doing it. The science is basic and easily understand, at least by reasonable people. It is the greenhouse model (assume you've heard of it).

If you want to argue that sun spot cycles, volcanic activity, climate cycles, or the end of the Mayan calendar are causing the current round of GW, the onus is on YOU to prove it. Why would you assume that climatologists do not take this all into account?

Oh, and I (briefly) looked at the Wikipedia page for the author of the book you cited. According to it, he has changed his mind since writing the book and acknowledged that man-made GW is occurring. Smart guy. He isn't a climatologist, BTW, but a geologist.

Isn't it funny how we're gone from all truth being relative or just "opinions" to me supposedly being a mentally defective imbecile because I don't agree with your non-mainstream pet theory about how the world works. Funny that.

"make me look like an idiot"

If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, ...

As has been stated before, who knows who's right? It's a matter of opinion, really, because the future doesn't exist yet.

I can't believe that you pushed me off a building.

That was merely an example. Of course, I'd never do such a thing. Perhaps it popped into my head because you're always talking about covering the earth in skyscrapers.

same old regurgitated optimism from the various New Age seminar scrap bins that have been going on for the last few decades

Decades? Centuries. This country was founded on such optimism. And before the New Age stuff of the 70s, there was plenty of popular culture stuff like Napoleon Hill's THINK AND GROW RICH which was published in 1937. Clap trap all of it, including the new versions like "The Secret" and "Law of Attraction"

I'll take Old Age over New Age any day.

Advaita Vedanta, for example, based on Rig Veda, 7000 years old (5000 BC or earlier), which is older than Judaism with its miraculous parting of the Red Sea, burning bushes, etc. What crap.

I can't go for that Judaic-inspired New Age miracle religion called Christianity either, water into wine, loaves and fishes, virgin births, etc. What crap!

RE: John Michael Greer

I dunno about this silly "archdruid" business but this is one humdinger of a blog post...

http://thearchdruidreport.blogspot.com/2012/01/waking-up-walking-away.html

Quite apropos to our discussion above on technology and civilization.

TURKEY:

Don't worry. I'm really leaving now.

You are immersed in "logic" and "the sciences" and "the laws of the physical universe" and these are your boundaries. Supposedly fixed and never changing.

I don't ignore or discount these factors. I just know there are higher forces at work. Things change. Man evolves.

There isn't much truth in our civilization. It tends to dive out of sight in this universe. Today everything is upside down and backwards. Many ill-intentioned individuals and groups have made this so in economics, medicine, mental health, education, etc.

What is white is now black and what is fiction is now fact.

We'll see how things turn out.

Damn another post to respond to. Boy, I'm popular. Everybody likes me.

What is this skyscraper stuff you keep talking about? I never said anything about skyscrapers, all I said was that man will manage to have way more than 6 trillion people on this planet. I think you've got me confused with someone else.

I don't think anyone here is arguing that mental outlook has no effect on how you interact with the world, just that thinking by itself is not able to nullify or bypass the basic laws of the universe, which is pretty much an obvious, a priori truth.

Otherwise, we'd all be walking through walls and teleporting. I myself would go with X-ray vision or the ability to stop time. That would be entertaining.

Yeah, there was this one guy awhile back. Maybe you're not him. My mistake, if so.

"all I said was that man will manage to have way more than 6 trillion people on this planet"

Wow. Have you run the numbers on that, just in terms of the indoor plumbing? It is not possible.

Exactly, that is all I'm saying TURKEY. Except that I put a bit more emphasis on the power of thought.

How many times in history has a person said "that is not possible" and then whadda ya know, it turned out to be possible.

This is a big planet. There are a lot of creative geniuses, thinkers, innovators and engineers, scientists, inventors, artists and organizers here. And there will be many more.

I can't predict the future. Man will solve the "problem" of plumbing. Either ahead of time or he will be forced to as a result of crisis.

As many of you know - there's little point in making a post. Too many details clutter each idea, each theory.

For instance - if I say something about the current necessity of harvesting oil from below the ocean - Asok will confirm that this proves that additional ways of harvesting oil will increase in the future.

If you make a point for any mathematical limitations of resource consumption correcting the current comfort and status of the human race - it is assumed to be a natural phenomena - with no need for preparation of cooperation of management.

You see, even in a Clusterfuck - there are optimists that heed higher values than the ideas that common people deserve and even chance in their future.

There is one huge overlay that is my main gripe with the present "trend". Can you guess what it might be? (I knew you could. ;o)

We're either going to play, "Suicide for Dollars", or "Housekeeping for Survival". I think we understand that the flim-flams, scams, schemes, Ponzi-s, rackets, deceptions and cons are reflections of the former, and they are the stock-in-trade of those who hold the power and run the world. THAT, my friends, is the current TREND, and they also control energy production and how it's used. Until this "trend" is eradicated, those who cry DOOM are the more correct and informed about the true nature of mankind's direction.

Nice post, Ozone.

Good point about the loss of talent and knowledge in the wrenchin' department. I happen to think of it as involving much more intuition than most would acknowledge.

John Michael Greer is probably the most profound writer on the Post-Peak Oil scene, and the particular posting you link to is positively sublime. He makes a powerful case for why most people should just begin to walk away from the industrial, consumer society and head in the direction of "reducing your needs to zero". That's easier said than done, of course, but he has a ton of practical advice for how to do just that.

And he's absolutely right when he says that one of the first thing a great many people need to do is get rid of the car, and use other forms of transportation to get around (and rent a Zip Car when you absolutely need to use a car). A lot of younger Americans are doing just that.

As has been stated before, who knows who's right? It's a matter of opinion, really, because the future doesn't exist yet.

Yes, but some opinions about the future are MUCH better informed than others. John Michael Greer's, for example. His simple recognition of the fact that the decline of fossil fuel resources is gradual, not sudden, is an important piece of evidence for his claim that the descent from industrial civilization will be considerably more gradual than many Peak Oilers (Post-Peak Oilers now) are willing to admit.

It's much more likely to be a long, slow downward grind than one sudden fall out of an airplane from 40,000 feet (with no parachute).

Do make it a point to read his blog, the Archdruid Report, whenever you can.

Hey Kaiho Iwasaki, Greer has some pretty good insights, but what's up with the white robes, strange headgear, and curious interests in UFOs. Has he appeared in Noury's radio program C2C?

--WSP7

'Napoleon Hill's book'...Did you know he lived in Poverty? [hahahaha, what a huckster Hill was].
Maybe if he'd 'Worked and saved to riches'...
No, too logical.

But the point is that there should be much more R&D funding for thorium reactors. You are correct where nuclear technology is currently heading, but that doesn't make it a smart move. Unfortunately, TPTB have a stake in the current path and don't want to head off in different directions.

Passively cooled LWR, a la NuScale, is a very smart move, Beantownbill, for no other reason than that the entire world has an enormous amount of experience with LWR that can be taken advantage of. The chief drawback of LWR to date has been their need to be actively cooled. Passive cooling solves that problem. That's why there's so much interest in moving forward with this approach.

Passively cooled LWR really is the safest way to do nuclear.

I believe he has appeared on Noury's program, widespreadpanic7. In any event, his take on UFOs is quite compelling; not an X-Files perspective at all.

The robes and headgear are part of the religious garb he wears in his religious role. His insight on magic as a psychological, rather than a physical, force is a powerful one, as is his claim that the advanced industrialized nations can be thought of as examples of modern, thaumaturgical states.

I take issue with your slow downward grind assertion.

We participate in the economy to fill needs and there is a difference between vital needs and needs which are not essential for survival. Modern man however often has great difficulty determining what needs are vital and which are not.

Those on top of the social pyramid continue reaping the surplus of those lower on the social pyramid as production of goods and services declines. The needs of the poor are disproportionately affected because it cuts into their ability to meet vital needs. Food, shelter, clothing, home heat, medical care, stuff like that. Fulfilling vital needs takes the lions share of the poor's budget.

The affluent may have to buy smaller boats but these are not vital needs. They can bitch and moan and do but as their vital needs are not affected they deserve zero sympathy.

In times of growth the poor get by somewhat OK. In times when the economy is flat life for the poor gets rather miserable. If the economy is in actual decline life of for the poor becomes horrible.

It comes down to being able to meet vital needs. The affluent continue to take what is theirs (the surplus of the poor) leaving the poor nothing to meet vital needs with when times get tight. This leads to a rapid collapse of society through revolutionary processes as the bottom of the social pyramid becomes unable to meet vital needs.

A 'let them eat cake' dynamic evolves and then the pyramid goes down hard.

Often in the past bush meat filled the gap. I have a squirrel named Silvester living in my backyard redwood tree and a raccoon named Rocky prowls my yard at night. Together they would give only one or two days sustenance and raccoons tend to have parasites and should be avoided. Besides they are unofficial pets and I want to leave them alone.

Now we get a bit more into the details.

The decline of a civilization is rarely anything like so sudden for those who live through it. It's a much slower and more complex transformation than the sudden catastrophes imagined by many soical critics today. -- John Michael Greer

Think of world-wide industrial civilization's "Long Descent" as analogous to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire never actually "collapsed", in the sense of a sudden TEOTWAWKI. Its decline followed a pattern of a sharp crisis (of some kind) followed by a period of relative stability (at the new, lower standard of living), followed by another crisis, period of relative stability, etc..

The most-likely scenario is that industrial civilization is going to follow a similar path.

On the topic of climate change, China's uncanny ability to successfully deploy SO2 scrubbers at their new and existing coal-fired power plants sets the stage for global temperatures to breakout from the relatively flat trend of the last decade, to new, record-breaking levels.

The ingredients for a Roman cesare salad did not come from 1000 miles away. Now days if trucks don't move people starve. We have an order of magnitude difference in complexity from the Romans. Circumstances are different. Our house of cards is more fragile than theirs ever was.

The jury is very much still out on this and I'm betting it'll all end the same way as the "cold fusion" wet dream did a couple of decades ago. See below.

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory/head-faster-light-neutrinos-team-resigns-16038220

The process of decline will indeed go faster than it did for the Romans. In their case, it took about 1200 years for the entire thing (West and East) to end. For industrial civilization, 200 years is a generous allowance, as it passes through various phases (abundance industrialism, scarcity industrialism, salvage industrialism...).

The schtick is tired and worn-out as a 2 dollar whore on a Sunday morning with the Fleet in town.
=============

^That's a funny line.

Cold fusion has not yet "ended."

Jean-Paul Biberian surveyed 15 years of cold fusion research and concluded that nuclear reactions that are not predicted by current theories were occurring in cold fusion reactors.

Positive results with excess heat and neutron emission are enough to prove that the cold fusion phenomena is real. Those few experiments with negative results don't count because they could be caused by flaws in the setup, and you can't prove an idea false by simply having a negative replication.

Recent accelerator experiments on fusion of various elements have clearly demonstrated that the effective cross-sections of these reactions depend on what material the target particle is placed in. In these experiments, there was a significant increase in the probability of interaction when target nuclei are imbedded in a conducting crystal or are a part of it. These experiments open a new perspective on cold nuclear fusion.

There are trends within trends, but I didn't want to get complicated. I'm talking about an historical mega-trend here.

The one flaw I see in TPTB conspiring to get ever richer and powerful and not caring what happens to the rest of the world, is that it makes no sense to want to rule a destroyed world. Ruling from underground refuges or walking around with gas masks and SPF-zillion lathered-on sunscreen is not how I would want to live my privileged life. I have to conclude that TPTB know that solutions will be implemented. As you may already know, I'm not big on conspiracy theories.

I don't begrudge you the fact that passively cooled LWR seems to be a big improvement. And maybe it will take too long to get thorium reactors on-line. But to me, fission reactors of any sort are at best a stopgap until solar power satellites with Earth-based rectenna farms, and nuclear fusion reactors are made practical. Yes, it will take a lot to get there, but ultimately, as long as we do have stopgap alternatives, we'll succeed.

Yeah, I know this seems childishly optimistic pie-in-the-sky science fiction. I am a rational adult, not a fool. But I am an optimist, as well. What good is life if one cannot dream big dreams and act on a large stage? I like to keep my feet firmly planted on the ground, while my head is in the clouds.

This whole FTL neutrino episode is like an instruction manual on how science works. We have a brilliant team of physicists employed at the world's foremost particle physics sites carefully designing and building equipment for a complex experiment. Anomalous results are obtained that contradict current theory. The design and equipment are triple-checked and nothing wrong can be found. The results of the experiment are stunning, and as extraordinary claims require extraordinary proofs, the elite team asks for help from other experts in the field in determining whether or not mistakes have been made.

The original scientists made no absolute claims; they just stated they got an unexpected result, triple-checked it and the results stood. They requested verification from other scientists. The team didn't call the Enquirer to say they had just overthrown Einstein's theories of relativity.

4,000 years?

Hmmm... I thought it was around 930 BCE when the southern Kingdom of Judah and a northern Kingdom of Israel were created. That would put Israel's age at under 4,000 years.

Still, the Rigveda is at least 1,000 years older. Philological and linguistic evidence indicate that the Rigveda was composed in the north-western region of the Indian subcontinent, roughly between 1700–1100 BCE (the early Vedic period). The Rigveda is far more archaic than any other Indo-Aryan text.

The Rigveda derives from the Proto-Indo-Iranian times, often associated with the early Andronovo culture of ca. 2000 BCE (20 centuries BCE).

The Hebrew language doesn't go back that far. Hebrew flourished as a spoken language in the kingdoms of Israel and Judah (7 to 10 centuries BCE).

Standard Biblical Hebrew appears around the 8th to 6th centuries BCE, much later than the Rigveda, which was composed between 1700–1100 BCE.

There is so much that we have yet to discover, to confirm, to utilize, that it boggles the mind. We are but infants when it comes to science, and a glorious childhood awaits.

asoka, you should read John Horgan's book about this topic sometime. It's very thought-provoking.

http://www.amazon.com/The-End-Science-Knowledge-Scientific/dp/0553061747

I don't agree with the premise that we are reaching the limits of knowledge. Knowledge is like a circle illuminated by a beam of light. The more knowledge, the larger the circle.

Note that as the circle of knowledge enlarges, the perimeter where light touches darkness also grows.

The more we know, the more we realize we don't know. The more questions we answer, the more new questions arise.

I rely upon this circumference of ignorance to provide a never-ending fodder for the growth of knowledge.

The metaphor I have presented defeats the idea of a "limit" to knowledge.

I'll give you a chance to read the book first, asoka, so you can draw your own conclusions. As you'll see, contemplating the possibility of the End of Science (by which Horgan means the End of Scientific Revolutions) is quite thought-provoking.

I thought it was around 930 BCE when the southern Kingdom of Judah and a northern Kingdom of Israel were created.

Yes, the David's kingdom is about 3,000 old. But we had 400 years of Judges prior to David. Prior to that we had another 400 years of Egyptian slavery. And prior to that we about 100 years of Abraham and his descendants living in Hebron and Be'er Sheva. That adds up to about 4,000 years.

They also found proto-Hebrew inscriptions in the Sinai on the walls of copper mines that are about 4,000 years old (1900 BCE). These inscriptions make a direct reference to Elohim (the god of Israel). So all the cultural/national identifiers were already there 4,000 years ago.

Note that as the circle of knowledge enlarges, the perimeter where light touches darkness also grows.

The Negatives associated with Throw away Diapers


1 extremely important choice which mother and father need to help to make is actually whether they uses fabric or even throw away diapers. With regard to first-time mother and father, this is often a struggle, because you will find benefits and drawbacks associated with utilizing each kinds. Throw away diapers weren't usually a choice with regard to mother and father, obviously, because fabric diapers had been standard up to the actual past due 50's, once the very first throw away diapers had been created as well as production on their behalf had been exercised. Since there is a selection, mother and father associated with babies needed to think about both benefits and also the negatives associated with throw away diapers.



There are lots of factors which mother and father choose throw away diapers instead of fabric diapers -- that's, lots of "pros. inch Probably the most well-liked factors may be the ease of the actual throw away diaper. You won't ever need to be worried about getting all of them acquired with regard to cleansing, given that they proceed directly into the actual rubbish. An additional cause is actually the truth that you will find phases from the diapers, for the reason that kids may changeover in one dimension to a different because they develop and also the diapers tend to be installed for every phase associated with development how the kids undergo.



However...

There are specific "cons" in order to utilizing throw away diapers, as well, having a couple of which often guide mother and father to make use of fabric diapers more than throw away types. Very first, the price of throw away diapers can be quite higher so when bought regularly may accumulate considerably. Fabric diapers tend to be more cost-efficient simply because they may be cleaned again and again, getting rid of the requirement to buy all of them often. The price with regard to throw away diapers doesn't appear to alter along with grow older possibly. It would appear that the actual old the kid will get,trx trainer outlet online, the actual much less diapers they require, however the less diapers you receive inside a container -- therefore the price continues to be virtually just like a person complement, utilizing less however larger diapers.



Presently there are also issues previously concerning the environment harm which throw away diapers may cause. Throw away diapers, particularly the very first couple of decades of these, really are a great deal tougher about the atmosphere simply because they consider lengthier in order to break up. Being that they are made up primarily associated with materials, once they find themselves in landfills their own elements (along using the waste materials inside them) might, actually, ruin the floor drinking water. It will take a long time for any throw away diaper in order to decay, while fabric diapers could be cleaned again and again, that removes the requirement to toss all of them within the garbage whatsoever.



Benefits associated with fabric diapers

Another "cons" associated with disposables turn out to be obvious when it comes to the actual "pros" from the fabric options. Even though throw away diapers tend to be practical as well as practical, when it comes to having the ability only to rely on them as well as throw all of them, their own performance doesn't proceed a lot past which. Along with fabric diapers you should use all of them for a lot of additional reasons, because washcloths,trx training door anchor outlet online, burp towels, cleansing towels as well as cloths. There are many additional utilizes with regard to fabric diapers, particularly following your son or daughter develops from all of them.



Whenever a mother or father chooses to start toilet instruction the youngster, they may think it is harder when utilizing the throw away diaper. The reason being kids that put on fabric diapers have the dampness greater than a kid which would wear throw away diapers. Sensation much more dampness can make a young child wish to make use of the bathroom faster whenever dealing with toilet instruction, because the much more unpleasant the kid may be the faster she or he may wish to help to make great upon using the bathroom ..



Much better coping with much less chemistry

An additional "con" associated with utilizing throw away diapers is actually the truth that chemical substances tend to be found in all of them. Based on current research, the actual chemical substances within throw away infant diapers can occasionally damage kids in the event that utilized negligently. A few of the health issues consist of poisonous surprise affliction in certain kids, allergy symptoms such as rashes as well as pores and skin pain within other people, as well as the chance associated with harm to the actual main anxious program. Research display how the salt polyacrylate within diapers, the material which allows with regard to much more absorbency, additionally leads to a particular quantity of allergy symptoms. Even though portion of those incidences is actually reduced, these people perform occur.



The easiest method to choose whether to make use of throw away diapers would be to perform the study as well as discover whenever possible regarding each choices. Even though there are lots of points to consider, you are able to thin lower the actual determining elements through thinking about what's going to end up being least expensive, handy as well as workable for you personally like a mother or father, about the 1 hands, as well as exactly what will be greatest for the kid, about the additional. In the event that fabric diapers appear the greater option for you personally, after that do it now.

All right, JHK! You're back in the saddle, again.

AIM, you will have to forgive some of us when we say that you sound just like the recently departed 8M/Olde soixante-neuf/Tegmark.

If you're not him, then disregard some of this, but TRILLIONS, dude. Large numbers trip a lot of people up. One trillion is one THOUSAND billion.

And the planet is gasping under the weight of 7 billion human souls.

One trillion people would be 993,000,000,000 more people than we have now.
50,000,000,000,000 people - ok, then.

That might tax, even, the ability of our Resident Lover of All Things Human - trying to love all of those people without limit.

I understand that you didn't want to pile on too many factors in your original assessment, but I still posit that the trend of massive fraud holds equal weight with your altruistic technological pursuit trend.

"The one flaw I see in TPTB conspiring to get ever richer and powerful and not caring what happens to the rest of the world, is that it makes no sense to want to rule a destroyed world. Ruling from underground refuges or walking around with gas masks and SPF-zillion lathered-on sunscreen is not how I would want to live my privileged life. I have to conclude that TPTB know that solutions will be implemented. As you may already know, I'm not big on conspiracy theories." -BTB

Beans,
I'm not so certain they know any such thing, and I'm a little surprised that you don't consider arrogance and hubris to be the ultimate set of blinders. Mind-set will do the trick as surely as any hardened conspiracy, IMHO.
Sorta like carelessly knocking over the punchbowl at the party, then expecting someone else to not only clean up the mess, but to refill the bowl with more sweet swillage as well. Our "leading lights" are become the world's most dangerous three and four-year-olds.

Be advised that I didn't mean to drag you away from your original posting of a positive mega-trend, it's just that I see one equally as large in a negative direction that's been happily cranking along for nearly a century! (Speaks more to my outlook than most anything else. ;o)

Very profound. He's right: I want it over now so I don't have to keep worrying about money. I want the fun to start. I'm hoping the Maya were right. 12/22/12 is our last best hope. If it just all continues without catastrophe, we are sure to lose all our rights as the Elite become more tyranical. And then there are the Camps built for Conservatives. But they could "serve" the poor just as well.

The tyrannical elite and "Camp Conservative". I can see it now, a rabid band of militant feminists lowering a roped Rush Limbaugh into the crocodile pond. Snap, crackle, pop... goes the hot air balloon.

Isn't it ironic, that so many readers from this site worry about money as they indulge in their proclivity for misanthropy. And yet, Doom Kunstler has a rather impressive column of potential income streams on the right and bottom placements of his webpage. I noticed that An Inquiring Mind failed to note this irony amidst his condescending declarations, but I wonder if you have also failed to notice? You have previously stated that you have bought JHK's books so you're obviously aware of his hard work and hopefully well-rewarded efforts.

But what's a by-the-bootstrap conservative like you doing lamenting finances on a communicative medium that is the equivalent of the Wild,Wild West? You're a smart guy and an idiosyncratic writer. Why not holster up those six shooters and take aim. And who knows, if you aim patiently and precisely, you too might wake up in the morning to see how much money you earned while sleeping.

But if I was King you wouldn't have to concern yourself with such worldly affairs; people such as yourself shouldn't have to. I would take a page out of Spider's book and have you spend your days doing something truly worthy, like explicating and analyzing the works of your beloved Kierkegaard. But that's the liberal in me speaking.

I was beginning to think stupefying grind, with you hurling what appeared to be an unending salvo of optimistic ordnance, and I was almost prematurely critical. But then my mind phrased the inquiry, "who am I, at this Easter time, to crack the shell of this optimistic egg and make it a tasteless, overdone omelette?"

This gave me pause, which gave me reflection, which reminded me of David Deutsch's book, "The Beginning of Infinity".

In it he states, ..."every putative physical transformation, to be performed in a given time with given resources or under any other conditions, is either:

- impossible because it is forbidden by the laws of nature; or
-achievable, given the right knowledge".

So, fill your Easter basket with optimism, but remember that not only chocolate bunnies are eaten.

If you found a book titled "Optimism and the Grave", would its author be I. Dide Laffing?

Hi BB, your cup of common sense seems to be running over. Might need a bowl.

The Jews were just a small part of the Semetic Sub Race. Toynbee didn't believe they warranted being called their own Civilization, but rather just one nation in the Syrian Civilizatin.

AIM is not who he appears to be.

AIM said "Man predicts consequences Planetary Deathand comes up with solutions Conservation of Energybefore the problem Rising Carbon Dioxide levels manifests.

Sometimes Man The First World misses the boat Doesn't Mitigate Carbon Dioxide Rise and a crisis arises Global Warming.

This raises his "necessity level" Panic Button and he is then forced to solveForced to solve the problem in short order."

Some fates can't be solved, only avoided. Because if fate turns to reality, we have by definition not avoided it; rather we are already in it. We are limited at that point to other fates the current reality doesn't preclude.

By the time we are moved to necessity we are by definition, too late.

People don't seem to understand that the billions upon billions of BTUs of solar heat the Arctic sea is absorbing isn't real damage to the Earth's equilibrium.

The most naive among them simply can't believe it will affect them in their lifetime.

This is a new species of Global Warming Denier.

By extension, people who deny action on Global Warming are the part of the problem.

Look in the Mirror, dude.

You are the cause of Global Warming. You are the person driving the drought, bringing the pestilence, the misery, and the horror. Otherwise there would be political will to change course, and even try to implement the "solutions" you suggest are even possible.

"...or create a stop gap measure Injecting the atmosphere with Silicon Dioxideuntil the problem Rising Temperatures can be more effectively handled Less Chaos at a later dateWhich is unimaginable."

Solutions continue to become more sophisticatedComplex and dangerous because of the closeness of the Event Horizon.

Every year that goes by, the problem becomes harder to solve.

"We've been through ice ages, droughts, famines, pestilences, plagues, world wars, etc. etc.

Have faith."

Did... faith "Solve" any of the problems mentioned above?

Faith that solar panels will appear on my roof is like faith that Health Care will be available when I'm dying? No, people have to "fight" for their rights. How about today? Can you fight for your rightS?

So, to sum up, most people are global warming deniers. Either as primary causes or by inaction.

The real percentage would probably be well over 90%, and in the US that would not include bums.

Homeless people, people without capital, are the true heroes as they walk lightly on the Earth.

Golf pro Phil Mickelson says he has NOT been sinking his putts where it doesn’t belong … and now he’s sicking his lawyers on the people who’ve plastered the Internet with accusations he fathered an illegitimate child.

Mickelson was pissed when he learned some jerkwad or jerkwads using the screen names “Fogroller” and “Longitude” had been posting scurrilous claims about him and his wife on a message board … which implied the Mickelsons are BOTH screwing around on each other Tiger Woods-style.

Phil claims he was able to track the I.P. address to an Internet service provider in Quebec. And now, he wants a Canadian judge to force the ISP to hand over any information which could identify the mystery poster – so Phil can tee up a defamation suit against the offender.  

In the docs, the San Diego golf champ claims the allegations are vicious and absolutely untrue -- and worries the claims could damage his “impeccable reputation.”

I don't know who Toynbee is and why I should care, but your Toynbee character is sounds like nothing more than a political hack. If what you say is true, his/her nonsense would parallel me saying that the American civilization didn't warrant being called its own civilization because it is just another nation in the larger Latin civilization. If one can't discern the uniqueness of culture, philosophy and outlook on life and way of life, and everything that's derived from that, then really there's no point to even bother with such obvious political hacks.

I was having lunch at my favorite little Japanese joint in south Georgia yesterday while Mr. O's address was entertaining the national status quo on CNN. As little TV as I watch these days, I found it curious that by the end of the address I was actually believing that there was some sort of substantial difference between the left and right in this country. (Even more curiously, I found myself wanting to cast my vote for the right's austerity plan.) And that was really the difference that was being outlined by the Prez: the left wants to take care of you all, no matter how much it costs a broke nation to do so; the right, with their evil social Darwinism, wants to destroy you. Knowing that we can no longer afford all the social and corporate support programs that made us what we are (thank god), it's hard to throw my lot in with the left on this one. Having used unemployment money and food stamps to bridge the gap between the old existence and a brand new one, I also find myself hoping that that option remains viable for the few people who will use it wisely.

But the real problem is the official story. If people keep thinking that recovery is underway, they will keep clinging to a dying way of life. Knowing what's really going down, one can take the pittance he's scraped together, and the other pittance of government support, and make a go of it in a far smaller, more localized economy. But only if he knows that's where we are headed. That's the real mis-deed being perpetrated by TPTB today. Energy descent probably isn't that awful; the details will work themselves out quite nicely I think. But it's a big problem for people who think that the fossil fuel bonanza will continue after this short time out.

JHK and several others do a marvelous job of keeping their readership tethered to reality, and the comments section here always has plenty to offer people who are taking the future seriously, whether it's guidance in homescale food and energy production, general social changes due to economic contraction, or mental food for thought about the end of the age of abundance and the death throes of agricultural society.

Thank you, Mr. Kunstler!

JulettaofOhio - presuming you are from Ohio - there are still plenty of tracks all over Ohio. Of course your Teabag Gov John Kasich cancelled the Rail project to finally restore passenger service from Cincinnati to Dayton to Columbus to Cleveland on existing tracks and right of way. Although this project was listed as part of Obama's "High Speed Rail" initiative in fact it would have just restored ordinary 90-100 MPH passenger service in only 2-3 years and would have been due for completion next year or so. Except Teabagger Kasich nixed it. It should be no surprise that Kasich'sTransportation Head is a former head of the Paving lobby in Ohio. ;-)
Like the rest of the US Ohio actually has tracks and Rail rights of way all over the State. You should check out the Rail Maps Atlas for details.
To wit I know there are intact Rails from both Northeastern and Northwestern Cincinnati to the downtown paralleling I71 and I75 some of which used to serve and still run through Proctor and Gamble's huge complex there.
As usual it is simply a matter of getting rid of Paving contractor Transportation heads or Koch Bros funded teabaggers like Gov Kasich to get them going again.
Cincinnati is building a very limited trolley system downtown. At least it is a start but it would make a lot more sense to simply begin running frequent passenger service either commuter rail or lightrail along already existing tracks. As mentioned like the Rails which parallel I-10 from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, these Rails already parallel major Interstates because they were there first and the Interstates were built to take away their transit traffic.
Tell your Representatives to get the Rails running again!

They have more yottobytes on me then they do on you. La de dah ha ha ha.

A couple of years ago I went to Oakland to learn horticultural skills at a most excellent school of 'higher' learning. On Monday this school was raided by the IRS, DEA and the U.S. Marshals. Records were seized.

Some of those yottobytes now be storin info on this dogs valedictorian status earned upon completion of a two day class there a couple of years ago. They can see my mug in the class graduation picture too.

And so the drug war rolls on. I read somewhere that there are now more black men in prison due to the drug war than existed in the entire country in 1850. If true that sure qualifies as a fun fact. I wonder if quObama takes drugs to make himself look darker than he really is. Didn't somebody did that to write a book once?

Richard Lee runs a reputable and profitable school. He makes sure to operate within state and local law. This raid can be understood by understanding that Richard was the driving force behind Proposition 19 a California measure that would have legalized adult use of marijuana in 2010.

I told Eric Holder last week to look into that business down in Florida last week and now dammmit I have to fire him. When the IRS, DEA and the U.S. Marshal coordinate somebody high up has to have something to do with it. The buck stops somewhere does it not?

Well I'll have to wait until I'm elected to do that. You have to fire quObama before I do that. Vote for the dog!!! In the meantime you can help in a small way to fight the injustice and blatant harassment of a political opponent (Richard Lee).

K-DOG for PREZ!!!!

Orbit7er, what happened in Ohio is a perfect example of why JHK so firmly believes the U.S. is truly a CFN. The sheer size of the country--and most of the states--is such that passenger railroads and trolleys should be a no-brainer.

Perhaps if the current trend among younger Americans to avoid buying a car continues, some of these projects may happen, eventually. And for those younger Americans who really do need some form of regular, personal motorized transport, this could be a golden opportunity to permanently convert them to Vespa scooters (75-90 mpg).

Looks like the gullible goyim subsidizes cheap labor in Israel:

Since the end of 2000, Arab states have transferred to the Palestinian Authority monthly financial aid of $45 million (since April 2002 this sum was increased to $55 million).
The European Union (EU) transfers to the PA approximately $9 million monthly. By the end of 2001, the Palestinians had received $4 billion (the figure is now closer to $5.5 billion) since the 1993 Oslo agreements.
Since the signing of the Oslo Accord in 1993, the U.S. government has committed more than $1.3 billion in economic assistance to the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
This is the equivalent of $1,330 per Palestinian. By comparison, the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe after World War II provided $272 per European (in today's dollars)." [emphasis added]

Mind you, those are just the figures for between 1993 and 2006.
The amounts have only increased since then despite Gaza knowingly electing an openly declared terrorist government (Hamas).

Toynbee, no doubt a goy.

I just finished the Oil Article in the April 9th issue of 'Times' magazine.

I have to say it really fracked me up.

At a pace that ever increases we overpopulate and burn through all the energy on the planet. By so doing we undermine the preconditions of our own existence. This is not opinion it is fact, and the time has come to stand up and admit it or admit instead that you are an idiot.

This agenda behind this article stinks. Intelligent dogs should read it anyway because the party line shows between the lines.

Flashback:

1963 - A filling station on the outskirts of the Twin Cities. K-DOG looks at a sign with a red horse with wings on it below which reads, GAS 34 cents/gallon. K_DOGS dad is filling the gas tank in his green 57 Chevy. The noisy pump rattles and clangs while a short pink stream of gasoline surges from the nozzle into the tank. K-dog looks at the busy road and ponders that all these cars get filled up just like daddy's car and thinks that a big huge gas pump ghost a mile high with gas coming out of it like water from a sewer is keeping all these cars going.

Daddy, where does all the gas come from?
K-Dogs dad says: Oh it comes out of the ground and gets pumped up like water. You know about water pumps don't you son, there's one at grandmas house. I showed you.

K-DOG remembers the pump. Daddy had showed it to him just last week but wouldn't let him touch it.

Daddy is there gas in ground where we are standing right now?

K-Dogs dad somewhat distracted says: Oh no, not here. Then with a flash of interest he says: Trucks bring it here, big trucks. The wells are out west. The pumps are there. It comes out of the ground as Oil and it gets made into gasoline and then trucks bring it here.

Daddy will we ever run out?

Oh no son there are huge lakes of oil underground with enough to last hundreds of years.

K-DOG looks over the field of melting snow across the road and then looks down sad. He knew that this could not be true. Lakes of oil would get filled up because the ground would crash through the lake and if the oil did not come all the way to the top of the ground it could only be between the cracks in the ground. In the tiny spaces between the sand and rocks.

K-DOG knew that there could not be enough sand filled lakes to keep all these cars moving forever unless the sand filled lakes were everywhere. K_DOG was sad because now he knew his dad did not know everything.

So here is how it is going to go. The lie will go like this:

Yes conventional oil supplies are running out but the doomers are wrong. The world is full of oil its just hard to get and it is going to be expensive. Everything is fine, the rich are going to get richer and if you work hard and play by the rules you will too.

It is all bullshit.

The article ends quoting quOBama:

"We've got to develop every source of American energy, not just oil and gas but wind power and solar power, nuclear power and biofuels.

That's the only solution to this challenge."

Seems to me his solution is to talk, do nothing, and let corporations do whatever they want. represent the status-quo.

The man knows nothing of the pioneering principle, the vicious circle, the limits of growth, population overshoot or die-off not to mention science and math. The man who runs the country is a party on dude don't worry kind of guy and he is going to kill us.

America please don't let it happen again. I don't want my family to starve. Put someone who has a brain in charge and not another slick smilin bullshit popinjay.

In other words, I'm wrong. This is what's called reductio ad Hilterum. If Hitler and the Nazis said something, it's automatically wrong since they're the Devil.

So if Hitler was against the gold standard, the gold standard must be good. If Hitler was for the Nation State, it must be a bad idea. If Hitler believed in the survival of the White Race, we must therefore work for the elimination of the White Race. If Hilter said 2+2=4, we must change mathematics, etc.

Obama is talking about how Courts can overstep their place - this from a Liberal/Socialist! The Supremes must have voted down the individual mandate in Obamacare and someone leaked it. Good news, at least in the preliminary vote.

Don't bother the Great Jew. Toynbee was just a goy at best, and perhaps even a Vatican Asset or what he calls me "a Vatican Sith".

I read that Steve Jobs was ripping off his stockholders at Apple. The Employees got the lion's share of the profits somehow. At least he shared his ill gotten gains with his comrades.

K-dog quotes Time quoting Obama:

We've got to develop every source of American energy, not just oil and gas but...

Like I said, the world's leaders are firmly committed to developing every ounce and cubic foot of fossil fuels that can be developed. IPCC emission scenario A1F1 (Fossil Intensive).

Eocene by 2100. Guaranteed.

Toynbee
Manic Bloom

I saw the future, it was dirty
But I told you it's clean
I had a vision we could change it
With a twist to the human machine

With blood and water, wood and fire
I perfect the scene
Joy electric, live forever
Now this completes the measure of my scheme

(Take it back forward)

I see utopia where skeptics see
A tick of the clock
Your chains will keep you far from freedom
Unless you rise above the streets that you walk

Get past the lies that paint the skies
Until you're left with just rock
Begin the change already done
Convection won't wait for the current to stop

Let's take back what we've fought so hard to create
We won't be remembered for waiting
There's no turning back when your fist hits the air
Cause tomorrow begins starting now

Good article on the Treyvon Martin case. We have passed the point of Peak White Guilt. Even NBC has apologized for lying.

http://www.counter-currents.com/2012/04/trayvon-and-the-end-of-white-guilt/#more-25301

Damn KAIHO don't make be agree with you.

Can't they understand if we don't take care of the pups it's all worth nothing?

Eocene? In what sense? Technologically? Or in tems of the lack of surface oil?

What about using the methane escaping from the Artic? If the Earth farts, who are we to hold our noses?

Damn KAIHO don't make me agree with you.

So many typos so little time.

Actually most appropriately a lack of human beings.

Thanks, IWASAKI. Basically, a nazi/vatican British imperialist agent. I should have guessed, this coming from Vlad.

Climate, atmospheric CO2 and methane. And the return of those cute, little Eocene horses.

Trapping the methane escaping from the Arctic is technologically a bridge too far for the 21st century. We're going to let it outgas into the atmosphere--there's nothing else we can do. しょうがないね。

Oh, there will still be a lot of human beings in 2100. Just not as many as there are now.

The world's leaders sincerely believe (not everything they do is utterly corrupt) that following a fossil intensive path is the only way to take care of the pups. They can't really envision any other way.

Sir Arthur Eddington, one of the 20th century's greatest physicists, said it best I think:

"If your theory is found to be against the second law of thermodynamics there is nothing for it but to collapse in deepest humiliation."

So, qualitatively at least, we know where the end of the fossil fuel age is. When it requires as much energy to extract and refine an energy source as the source provides, it stops being an energy source. To me that hard reality is very reassuring. Watching extraction shift from near-surface, pressurized light sweet crude to low-grade crap like fracked NG and oil shale is like watching the end of the Super Bowl in slow motion when you already know the final score...

I read that Steve Jobs was ripping off his stockholders at Apple. The Employees got the lion's share of the profits somehow. At least he shared his ill gotten gains with his comrades.
============

How so? In what way did he rip off?

How were his gains ill-gotten?

Take a look at Apple's long term stock chart. The avg Apple stock holder is vastly ahead. The stock has doubled in the last year alone.

That's why 500 ppm CO2 by 2100 is baked in the cake, but 1,000 ppm may not be.

[as Kdog has said, so many typos, so little time].

"man i am so tyred of troglodyte anti-progress types."

You and your ilk are the anti-progress types. You want everything to continue on exactly as it is now, unchanged. You expect majikal "tech" solutions to be delivered to you, *just-in-time*, by someone else. *YOU* do not want to put forth any effort whatsoever, in order to progress toward any sort of sustainable/renewable future. You just reap the rewards, and dump the problems on future generations.

"large-scale tree planting has very positive effects on atmospheric levels of co2."

Oh, please - open your eyes. This wouldn't even come close to offsetting a *fraction* of the annual Amazon Basin clearcutting that is going on, in your neck-of-the-woods.

"who said we should only plant a 'few' trees?"

I believe these were *your* exact words, "plant a damn tree."

"and re googling the latest climate change models...whose models? the ones which show no/no appreciable warming?"

I suggest you look directly at real/actual/measured data, which involves 3 main trend charts. The first is the annual global temperature trend (going back a good 150 years, maybe look at massive polar region differentials). The second is the global CO2 atmospheric trend (even the ones that goes back 400,000 or 800,000 years from ice cores). The third is the global solar irradiance trend (which shows we have just come out of the ~6 year long solar minimum). If you need to go further, look into radiative absorption coefficients of nitrogen and carbon dioxide, and develop your own simple model using science/physics (maybe throw in snow reflectance).

"multiply that by millions of trees, or a billion."

Assume: ~20,000 square kilometers are clearcut in the Brazilian Amazon each year, ~400 trees per acre in the Amazon. That comes out to *2 billion trees* clearcut EVERY YEAR, just in the Brazilian Amazon...

And the "no-caps" thang ain't really helpin' your argument much, either (but perhaps it helps you mentally, to remember which *sock-puppet* you're logged into)...

And, as turkle suggests, I'm not sure any of these nay-sayers even bother going outside, and looking around (or going online, and doing a real investigation, without relying on being MSM spoon-fed)...

How can the robust male NOT adore the feminine? But yes, the female, the she-cat with claws that can scar, poses a seductive danger. How many have ecstatically writhed with her, limbs entwined, only to have their emotional jugulars severed?

You and your ilk are the anti-progress types.

Thats very good, The truth is as you know, those who advocate 'technical solutions' are actually behind the technological curve and are mired in the past. Ironically they have not actually kept up with intellectual technology.

They are no better than politicians. Building a sustainable/renewable future would be the greatest technical achievement of all time. Participating in making it happen the best thing one can do. Saving the pack is a satisfying thing to do.

A similar thing happened at the end of the Mousterian. I'd explain but I have a job interview in a few minutes.

Wow, what a total douche-bag.
=============

Douche-bag? Perhaps. But total? That's going a bit too far.

Well, Dennis Meadows, the head of the Limits to Growth team for the past 40 years, has now thrown in the towel. He says that sustainable development is no longer possible; world leaders waited too long.

His recent powerpoint presentation "It is too late for sustainable development": is here:

http://si.edu/consortia/limitstogrowth2012

"apparently the earth is facing a huge freezing threat and stopped warming in 1997"

Really? You're also going to claim that the global temperature hasn't changed in the past 15 years? Have you ever done any investigation into the plethora of free data out there yourself, without simply biting, hook-line-sinker, the MSM story-du-jour?

So if the global temperature has "stopped warming"/gone down since 1997, why is 2010 the highest annual global temperature on record? Why is 2005 the second highest? Why is 1998 the forth highest, behind 2007 in third?

www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2011/12/global-temperature-news/

climateforce.net/2012/01/21/nasa-2011-global-temperatures-9th-warmest-year-since-1880/

Might be worth taking all that "stopped warming" data since 1997, and doing a simple linear curve fit. If you'd like, throw in 1996, 1995, or whatever else you think you can include to make the slope zero/negative (*HINT* - you can't make it non-positive, even by DELETING 1997).

PS, anyone notice which prediction of mine was just verified as *false* above?!... Hehehe! Solar irradiance isn't ramping as fast as I thought it would, from the 6 year solar minimum flux. You gotta admit, the recent variability in annual global temps has really tightened up, resulting in the last 6 years' worth of data butting right up against the max...

Griffin, John Howard. 1961. Black like me. Boston: Houghton Mifflin.

The Deep South of the late 1950's was another country: a land of lynchings, segregated lunch counters, whites-only restrooms, and a color line etched in blood across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. White journalist John Howard Griffin, working for the black-owned magazine Sepia, decided to cross that line. Using medication that darkened his skin to deep brown, he exchanged his privileged life as a southern white man for the disenfranchised world of an unemployed black man. What happened to John Howard Griffin--from the outside and within himself--as he made his way through the segregated Deep South is recorded in this searing work of nonfiction. Educated and soft-spoken, John Howard Griffin changed only the color of his skin. It was enough to make him hated...enough to nearly get him killed. His audacious, still chillingly relevant eyewitness history is a work about race and humanity every American should read.

"But do we really have enough to get the PPM even that high?"

At this point, it's really a huge problem of sequestration of CO2. The ocean has absorbed a huge amount of CO2 over the past few decades, becoming quite saturated (and acidic). As the ocean warms, it is forced to release excess CO2 above saturation (think *warm soda pop*). Also, the trees that used to capture air-born CO2 have been clearcut to near extinction (happened in Europe 6-9k years ago, North Africa[Saharan Desert] back 5-8k years ago, same with Turkey/Saudi Arabia/Iraq/Iran/South Asia).

But you may be correct - once we saturate the atmosphere with a high enough concentration of CO2, it will expand from greenhouse effect, pushing quite a bit of "air" out into deep space, sucking a lot of it all off the planet due to solar wind (out the ozone holes?)...

Mother liquor. That's got to be one of my favorite terms, and I get to use it all the time in my budding business. How cool. I just tinned up number 500 of our best selling market product, and had a half gallon of finished product to save in a big jar until the next round. But it all started the day as mother liquor. Just want to say it one more time...mother liquor.

Mother liquor. That's me. Though she wasn't a mother when I met her.

"If someone can't take care of and have a healthy personal environment (body), I surely wouldn't be listening to their thoughts, ideas and projections about the outlying environment."

You do realize fully that all drinking water contains *GHAD*-only-knows-what traces of organic GMO/chemical compounds that recycle and concentrate, as a result of all the poison/prescriptions (we) _YOU_ *flush* into our drinking water?!?

And _YOUR_ GMO crops, requiring ever more pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizer, are contributing even more to the runoff/x-pollination problem? Such a *HOLIER THAN THOU* posture, indeed. Take your faith, and cram it. I need no belief in some superpredator that requires my prayers in order to be 'saved'.

OK, soker, we'll let you kill *this* sock puppet off - for now.

He's right, Kaiho, with a degree of certainty that approaches 100%. Just too many damn humans, and new young billions in India and China that want consumptive lifestyles and have zero interest in "sustainability," however that word, and that concept, translates in Mandarin or Hindi.

I'm enjoying your posts, BTW, and I hope you stick around and keep posting. And that YouTube on the Kamikazes was really something. And it lead me to other videos on Japan in WWII. I didn't know so much movie footage had survived the war. I appreciate the reverence in which Japan holds her war dead. We could all gain something from trying to understand that.

Those who do not learn from the past.....

Hey, I've gotten a real good kick out of reading Gaia's Garden (over 1/2 way through). I especially love the descriptions of the monoculture lawns, extrapolated to the monoculture crops, and the total insanity of them all. And how they eventually foul the soil so badly, that it's a neverending spiral downwards, requiring ever more fertilizer, pesticide, herbicide, water, and weeding/aeration. FWIW, my neighbor in the back just mowed his "weed and feed" lawn for the 4th time in the past couple months (mine could use it's first cutting)...

I found I had discovered a lot of the points made early on in the book about in-place renewal, but it gave me a great idea for something in my backyard (Hugelkultur a 30 year old deciduous mammoth, with large 'edge').

One thing I found interesting, is about how you can boost the microbes/soil quality, by grabbing a few quarts of soil from the local forest. I'm lucky, I've got a nice stand of 'fairly' old growth (at least 100 years) only 2 miles away. I feel for the idjits in the midwest, that might get lucky finding a 30 year old hedgerow within 20 miles (GMO Corn/Soybean land)...

“Our crisis is a birth. We are one living system and we have come to the limit of one phase of natural growth on a finite planet… We must learn ethical evolution quickly… As we seek to facilitate a gentle birth, a graceful and nonviolent transition to the next stage of our evolution, we will discover a natural pattern, a design of our birth transition, and develop a plan to cooperate with this design.”

- Barbara Marx Hubbard

The way I perceive the threat of atmospheric CO2 to work is that it acts as an insulator surrounding a great big engine we call the atmosphere. In this well-insulated engine energy is free to move and collect in pockets and cause extreme weather events. Air also exchanges heat a lot faster than water so, again according to the law of entropy (the second law of thermodynamics), the energy differential between air mass and ocean can be substantial, creating a capacity for the system to do work, which we perceive as weather. The more wildly the temperature differential swings between ocean and atmosphere, and the better that engine is insulated, via greenhouse gases, the more severe the weather events tend to be. "Global weirding," not global warming. Everything is just more extreme until the trend reverses, gently or catastrophically, who knows. That's my take anyway. So why add to the problem?

"And so the drug war rolls on. I read somewhere that there are now more black men in prison due to the drug war than existed in the entire country in 1850." -K, the canine-

Yeah, K, that sounds about right. Truly bizarre, that's US drug policy. And US drug policy drives World drug policy - and World criminal syndicates.

If I were a native born US black, two things would make me really paranoid and pissed off. One is National drug policy and enforcement decisions. The other is US immigration policy - which has displaced much of the rest of the native born black population that was not displaced by economic decline and drug policy.
Damn.

On a related note - you mentioned Status QuoBama, as regards unchanging marijuana policy and stepped up enforcement.

I've been putting a new deck cap rail on the south side of my house today. (One of the rarely mentioned drawbacks of a passive solar house is the effect of all that damn Sunshine, on south facing exterior features.)

But, for some reason, while I've been working, I've been picturing Michelle and Barak lighting up a big doobie, after the day's political machinations were done. Maybe Michelle has Secret Service, CIA, and Vatican (Hi Mika) laborers slaving away in that White House garden of hers. And maybe they are growing prime hemp on the downlow.

It's just a thought, that kept me amused as I slaved away in the (unnaturally hot) Southern Spring sunshine.

"And his 'charity' is to Africa."

You know, that's funny, and something I can actually agree with. I remember my mom telling me about how Oprah (she's been an Oprah addict for 30 years) was giving all these donations to Africa. Mom was pissed that she wasn't doing it for all the impoverished/starving/malnourished children right here at home in the USofA (13% US children living in poverty? 17%? More?!?). TAKE THAT OPRAH!!!

================
On an unrelated note - here's an update on my food storage program.

As I detailed about a month ago, now - the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is what you should seek out if you want to store food for hard times. Those folks KNOW what they are doing. And the offer it to the public - CHEAP.

Hard red winter wheat - sprouts like crazy. The sprouts taste very good, with a sweet tender edge, for the first few days. After that, the sprouts become as tasty as grass out of the mower bag - but not as tender.

Pinto beans sprout well, but taste bitter and "beany." That probably means they have lots of vitamins and are very good for you. For some reason, most of the things that are very good for you - always taste pretty bad to me.

Black bean sprouts taste a little better than pinto bean sprouts - not a lot, but if TS impacted TF, to the point that I was eating my $1.00/day LDS food storage program for real - I'd be WISHING I had more stored black beans in cans.

I've got all three of the above mentioned types of seeds now sprouting - for real, in real time - out in my garden. Everything looks pretty good right now. Barring a late frost, I'll be expecting wheat, pinto beans, and black beans by mid-summer. I'll try to remember to make a report in a couple of more months.

"The way I perceive the threat of atmospheric CO2 to work is that it acts as an insulator surrounding a great big engine we call the atmosphere."

Actually, CO2 is more-or-less "uniformly" distributed throughout the atmospheric medium. But that would prolly not make much of a difference WRT a *model*.

"In this well-insulated engine energy is free to move and collect in pockets and cause extreme weather events."

I'm actually thinking it allows a hell of a lot more solar irradiance to be absorbed into the atmosphere (due to the positive absorption coefficient of CO2 over N2), thus resulting in your, "extreme weather events."

"Air also exchanges heat a lot faster than water"

Not exactly true. Air-cooled computers run much hotter than water-cooled ones. But I think you might be 'reefer'ing to the exchange of heat from vapor to liquid as being highly insulative - thus the solar irradiation/flux heat absorbed by the atmosphere is not readily attenuated by the oceans.

"so, again according to the law of entropy (the second law of thermodynamics), the energy differential between air mass and ocean can be substantial, creating a capacity for the system to do work, which we perceive as weather. The more wildly the temperature differential swings between ocean and atmosphere, and the better that engine is insulated,"

more likely, the more solar irradiance absorbed by the atmosphere with elevated CO2 content

"via greenhouse gases, the more severe the weather events tend to be."

BINGO!

""Global weirding," not global warming."

Nah, it's global warming, and the proof is in the annual global temperature measurements. Pretty cut and dry - 2010 was the highest on record, 2005 was second, 2007 was third, 1998 was forth, and the next 6 were all in the past 15 years.

"Everything is just more extreme until the trend reverses, gently or catastrophically, who knows. That's my take anyway. So why add to the problem?"

Another BINGO! Bah, we're arguing with disinformant agents!!!!

"And maybe they are growing prime hemp on the downlow."

Either you are supremely enlightened, or extremely paranoid - and I'm not sure yet which to think!

Oh, yeah, dug that CotLDS foodbank bit a week or so back (Ayup, I did read it)...

". I feel for the idjits in the midwest, that might get lucky finding a 30 year old hedgerow within 20 miles (GMO Corn/Soybean land)..."

Yeah, but there will still be pockets of deep dark soil here and there, and probably not a lot of people to fight for them! I feel for the loneliness of people in dying midwestern towns. I've only had one hit at my blog from the entire state of North Dakota; one hit. How many people live there? 16? 17? I've had that many people tune it from Jordan.

Anyway, if you're really good at being alone the midwest might end up being a lovely place to be! Although, on a side note, St. Louis has never been a very good place to be, regardless of energy access...


RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina will be home to the nation's largest private fuel cell energy project, a nonpolluting, silent power plant that will generate electricity from hydrogen.

Apple Inc. filed its plans with the N.C. Utilities Commission last week to build the 4.8-megawatt project in Maiden, about 40 miles northwest of Charlotte, N.C. That's where Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple has built a data center to support the company's iCloud online data storage system and its Siri voice-recognition software.

The fuel cell project, the nation's largest such project not built by an electric utility company, will be developed this year. It will be located on the same data complex that will host a planned 20-megawatt solar farm -- the biggest ever proposed in this state.

But it's the fuel cell project that's generating buzz, eclipsing anything ever dreamed of in California, the nation's epicenter for fuel cell projects.

"That's a huge vote of confidence in fuel cells," said James Warner, policy director of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association.

Fuel cells generate electricity through an electro-chemical process and are compared to batteries that give out power as long as they have a source of hydrogen.

They are exorbitantly expensive and in the past have been used only in experimental realms, such as NASA moon launches. The federal government offers a 30 percent tax credit, but no state incentive is available for fuel cells in North Carolina, making Apple's project all the more intriguing. Apple is also developing miniature fuel cells to power laptop computers.

On considering the term "flounder," as a sexual compliment to certain nubile young human females -

CF - my wife is out of town on one of our many, and sadly unfortunate, recent adventures related to aging family members. She was in no mood for me to take up the sexual nuance of the term "flounder," on the phone - as a complement or otherwise. Rest assured that I will broach the topic with her ASAP, in person.

And I find the idea of a female bed partner as a "flounder," to be unique - and, at least somewhat, erotic. If you have ever hungrily pursued a flounder over the seafloor, as I have, you will have vivid memories of the undulating motion, the energetic gyrations - always parallel to the planar soft smoothness of the bed - - err, I mean the seabed.

By way of extricating myself from this orgiastic dilemma - I present to CFN the orgasmic and ovulatory machinations - of the Panda Bear.

Calling Upton Sinclair....

The bum is in touch with his own needs. He manages to survive, and can take pride in that considering how much other people "spend" to "survive"... many orders of magnitude less energy intense.

In many cases, he takes what would otherwise be refuse and uses it. His idea of air conditioning is all-natural. His heat is borrowed from what would otherwise be wasted. And money? He'd blow it all on drugs, to shorten his own life.

In the final analysis you have a judge a man by his choices. If he knows better, he fails by inaction. If he doesn't, he is free, but his fate is out of his hands.

Everyone is dependent on everyone else. Your personal fate is more or less determined, or at least circumscribed, at this point, by other people, if your own biological limits aren't already established.

That is, you are all going to have "unnatural deaths" because Global Warming is a kind of genocide- a murder.

Nobody, almost nobody anywhere on the net, has enough respect for what healthy ecologies can do to restore fertility and busted mineral cycles, especially what mushrooms can do. It's a fascinating field to be an ad hoc part of, and I am already convinced, after only 4 years, that just about anything can be repaired quickly with proper stewardship. It's just hard to find that sort of thing in the U.S.

So yes, pesticide ridden soil, temporarily. But as soil quality improves so does brain function, so you end up with a nice positive feedback loop fairly quickly.

One of those cholesterol lowering drugs nearly killed me. That was about 15 years ago. Luckily, I quit taking it after a couple of days of muscle pain.

Hell, too much acetaminophen will kill you.

Wasn't there some big houpla here this week, about how the two different parties (Dem/Rep) were sooo different/same?!?

Oh, yeah - stupid me - Dylan Ratigan had a good line on this *SEPARATION OF PEEPZ*. Apparently, 40% are registered independent voters, and ~30% are DEMOTARDS, and the other ~30% are REPUGNICANS.

"especially what mushrooms can do"

On your advice? (perhaps) I have been gathering local mushrooms for the past 3 years and tossing them in my garden. And I've actually had success - you know when you see mushroom growing in a barren field, things are going to eventually come to *fruition*.

I almost stepped on the 3rd emerald green tree frog I've seen on my property (1 every year, past 3). And I'm sure they're here because of the Amanita Muscaria I gathered, from within a 6 block radius of my house. I know, frogs and shrooms - never woulda believed it tho...

"So yes, pesticide ridden soil, temporarily"

Really? That shit takes DECADES/YEARS to break down. And some lasts forever. They literally brought in the toxic chemical bath, and covered the topsoil...

This is yet another example of insider dealing and thievery at the highest levels, in cahoots with the government mafia, its "regulatory" and propaganda organs.

The subject of stocks, options, dividends, etc is too vast for a forum like CFN. There's no question that the big boys are holding all the cards and can play them pretty much as they please but, as I suggested before, look at a long term chart of Apple. It has gone from under $2 to over $600 since sometime in the 1980s. Its upward advance is exponential. An investor in AAPL who bought in Nov 2010 would be up more than 100%.

The biggest beef people have about AAPL is that they didn't (until very recently) pay any dividends. But the avg person doesn't realize that when a div is paid the company's stock price declines by a like amount. Take, for example, just today, VZ paid out 50 cents per share and T paid out 44 cents. Now, go to a High/Low/Close chart of these two stocks and you will see a gap down comensurate with the div payout.

"If I were a native born US black, two things would make me really paranoid and pissed off. One is National drug policy and enforcement decisions. The other is US immigration policy - which has displaced much of the rest of the native born black population that was not displaced by economic decline and drug policy."

Prog, I too have pondered exactly these points but realized that from a black American perspective they know their voices don't matter. A man who pisses in the wind gets wet. TPTB have now become so strong that progressive affluent dissent is easily ignored and those at the bottom of the social pile are not seen at all.

The media control is so strong that nothing gets into conventional media to challenge the party line. The 'War on Terror' has been invented and used for mass censorship, no other reason. Even here intelligent discussion has to compete with fake sales of shirts, and purses and whatnot. Nobody really comes here to sell anything, besides being inappropriate it's not worth the time.

Obama and Co spanked by the Court and asked to write a public apology (in both senses of the word) and to confirm he knows how the American System is supposed to work.

She was recently in Egypt where she told the Egyptians not to adopt anything like the American Constitution since it was so outdated and unjust. This from a Supreme Court Justice. She should be sacked.

Dennis Meadow's publicly-throwing-in-the-towel on the possibility of sustainable development is important news, as his predictions of resource limit trends have been consistently and uncannily accurate since 1972. Compare those trends against the ten scenarios presented in the original Limits to Growth book, and they fit scenario 1 (business-as-usual standard run) to a T. At this point, only collapse scenarios are possible. Meadows wants sustainability advocates to recognize this, and re-focus all their efforts on "resilience"--making their respective societies better able to cope with collapse, rather than futilely trying to avoid it.

How does the 10th Amendment relate to the ones after it (11th, 12th, etc.)?

Does anybody know how the Detroit Tigers could afford to award a single player, 1st baseman Prince Fielder, $127 million contract? Last season they signed a journeyman catcher for $150 million. And that's just 2 among many. Isn't Detroit a distressed city, losing population and unable to pay for vital services? What gives? Jim says we're running out of capital, but there seems to be plenty of capital to pay professional athletes. Just this season in MLB the big contracts (Braun, Pujols, Reyes) total over a billion dollars.

From Political Cesspool.com:
Staggering statistics: Black males between 16 and 36, though only 2 to 3 percent of the population, are responsible for a third of all our crimes.

In some cities, 40 percent of all black males are in jail or prison, on probation or parole, or have criminal records. This is not a product of white racism but of prosecutions and convictions of criminal acts.

As Pat Buchanan further elaborates, from January to June 2008 in New York City, 83 percent of all identified gun assailants were black and 15 percent were Hispanics.

Together, blacks and Hispanics accounted for 98 percent of gun assaults.

Translated: If a cabdriver is going to be mugged or murdered in New York City by a fare, 49 times out of 50 his assailant or killer will be black or Hispanic.

Yet, we’re told that so-called “racial profiling” is beyond the pale

We are a broken culture who has lost its way. My new book will be "The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger". I ordered it as the end of "Too Smart For Our Own Good" looms ahead. No doubt this book will send me even further beyond the pale as the last one certainly has.

The ideal that one could even think that a hundred million plus salary does not cause suffering somewhere is childish. The ball players entropy being far higher than needed causes a low entropy situation of need and want somewhere in the human experience.

To bow before the the false god of growth and excess and forget reality and common sense is considered good in our broken culture. That which drives people apart is considered good. Moving towards equality and sustainability, bringing people together, blasphemy.

Things will change, how it happens is a good question but the pioneering principle leads to crash and overshoot invariably unless mitigating circumstances intervene. We don't have any of those.

As a young man I walked away from driving a taxi because it degrades people(the drivers) and I calculated my odds of being murdered in a given year was about one in 500 which I considered to be too high.

Brutalization turns a man into a brute. Driving a taxi does this, as can military service.

So are you saying that if anybody "initiates" a "confrontation" with me I can just shoot them dead? Boy, am I glad I don't live in the US of A.

from January to June 2008 in New York City, 83 percent of all identified gun assailants were black and 15 percent were Hispanics.
==========

These stats will make Vlad very happy but you could put a cherry on top by saying "the other 2% were Jews."
;-)

Further to what I just wrote, you seem to be saying you prefer a country that operates under the rule of law and yet you also think killing somebody if they "initiate a confrontation" with you is just fine. A bit of a contradiction there I'd say. Oh, I get it, you live in a country where the "rule of law" says that's okay. To me it's not all that much better than mob violence.

The economic and social circumstances of blacks and Hispanics has an effect on the statistics. I'm not saying how much but honestly ask yourself this question did you try and ask yourself how such a statistic could come about? Does the author have an agenda? Did you ask yourself why?

Or did you instead accept or reject the statistic based on your emotions.

Just sayin.

This proves that you are a total ignoramus. If you read any of the writings of the Founding Fathers, you'd know that AVOIDANCE OF FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS was one of the major principles behind the founding of the USA.

Instead, you just throw out a bunch of adjectives like "imperialist" and we're supposed to bow down and kiss your Hebe ass. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on, you FUCKING NITWIT.

E.

My reply to you was more a general question for the audience. Please excuse the bad punctuation.

"making their respective societies better able to cope with collapse, rather than futilely trying to avoid it."

Yes as things tighten up a lot of strange carrots will be hung from sticks to divert and confuse understanding. The answer is fundamental change in lifestyles but that is too unpopular and abstract for almost everyone.

I imagine somebody will come up with 'Green Growth' and try and peddle that soon.

The problem is that mendacious futile attempts to deny the truth are not benign but actually injurious and will cause pain and suffering.

Why not ask the Southerners who tried to secede from the US empire who's the nitwit? And while you're at it, you might want to ask them about social graces, because you, professor, have repeatedly shown us you have none. :)

Most of the later ammendments whittle away the first 10.

The Constitution of the United Nations (or whatever its called) guarantees everyone the sun and the moon and then in one sentence takes it all away: all the above rights are subject to the good of the Society. Thus they are they are no rights but merely privledges granted by Masters. This is what Ginsburg, Kagan, Breyer and their ilk would have for Americans.

When Liza Minelli got married, people say the wedding reception was full of weird ugly little people. Kagan should have been there.

The answer is fundamental change in lifestyles...

I think this is why both JHK and JMG argue so forcefully for dramatic reductions in car dependence, despite the unpopularity of such a position.

No I'm just guessing. They're hard to predict. Does this goverment takeover make you happy?

Why are Jews so woefully underrepresented? You racist fuckers wont even allow Jews their rightful share killings.

As usual, you show an extraordinary lack of commonsense. If a man doesn't have the right to defend himself, why should he pay taxes, go to work, ect? Or defend you? It is the first right. The rest come later.

Remember, when danger is seconds away, the police are minutes away at best. Sensible people understand this and thus the 2nd Ammendment. Unarmed men are little more than slaves.

At least you understand the basic fraud. The moron professor can't even understand the basics.

That's not True. American Indians are the poorest of all yet not as violent as Blacks. Their societies in Africa are the same. It's genetic first, then cultural.

And naturally being what they are, the cultures they create will be more violent.

Vlad, it is my view that, now that the world has irrevocably transitioned from abundance industrialism to scarcity industrialism, the U.S. government takeover of health insurance was inevitable. There were better ways of doing it than Obamacare (or Romneycare), though.

Actually, our scientists are not really perfecting female robots for sex, or taking care of the sick and elderly, or any of the other "reasons" the Western media spouts off about.

Truth be told, our engineers are only trying to create realistic versions of the robots they saw in the anime and manga of their youth (Astro Boy, etc). The robots are toys, nothing more.

Thus we remain...inscrutable to the Western mind. :-)

And since time is money, or at least they don't pass out time wasted rebates at the pearly gates, why does anyone waste valuable time watching pro athletics for any reason whatsoever?

Let's face it: does a player making 127 million really care one way or another about the outcome of a game or season. In fact, the fans care more than the actual players who wins or loses.

The NFL,NBA,NHL,MLB would have been broke years ago if the majority of sports fans were of my inclination. And I write this as one who used to love sports, particularly that watershed moment when the militancy of the old AFL was bearing down hard on Johnny Crewcut and the black high-top league he represented.

Incidentally, pro sports also went south when the sports broadcasting media flushed the memory of true journalists such as Howard Cosell,Curt Gowdy, Lindsay Nelson down the toilet in favor of locker room schtick and bombastic jock antics. It was a divorce of the true athletic connoisseur and the subsequent marriage of Jerry Springer Nation to Corporate Athletic Whoredom that sealed pro-sports ultimate cultural value as nothing more than a professional wrestling match or roller derby rink fiasco.

Whew. Aren't you the nasty one. Maybe you should take your meds.

you Vatican sith!

Buck, WSP, KQ, et al:

Regarding pro sports -
Without corporate advertising, corporate ownership, corporate sponsorship, and those verdamned sky boxes leased by - you guessed it - corporations -

without all of that, pro sports as presently constituted in the United States, would not last for half of a regular season.

Are there, really, any real fans left? The guys who buy 4 season tickets for their wife and their two kids - and then drop 100 bucks+ per game on top of that on parking, food, and soda pop?

I've rarely met such a sports fan in the past 30 years - during which time I've been going to lots of games, more or less for free, on those corporate tickets, corporate sponsorships, and sometimes while even sitting in those verdamned corporate sky boxes.

Which, often have a nice verdamned corporate view
and, sometimes, corporate free drinks.

"Prog, I too have pondered exactly these points but realized that from a black American perspective they know their voices don't matter. A man who pisses in the wind gets wet. TPTB have now become so strong....." K, the canine-

Yeah, regretfully concur, K.

One thing we could do is ask just who IN THE HELL provides the bulk of funding for the NAACP and the SPLC these days. Management at those organizations is bizarrely pro-immigrant, and pro-illegal immigrant. That this circumvents the interests of these organization's REAL "supposed" constituency - that being native born American blacks, simply gets lost in the PR these days.

My logical and non-conspiratorial guess is that mega-bucks corporate fundraising trumps REAL mission - for most organizations, especially for those like the SPLC, that have a meager and impoverished base of natural donors.

In this regard, this is probably like what happened to the Sierra Club - which whored itself out to a single big donor over immigration - many years ago. "F*CK the US Environment!" -SC-

Well I guess Canadians show an extreme lack of common sense, because nearly all of us think it is preferable not to go around with guns in our pockets. And for some odd reason our crime rates are a lot lower than they are in countries where people walk around armed.

The other day he was lecturing us about "polite society". How quickly the veil comes off..

Ah, Bustin, that's a nice reply to me. But you ere in elevating any generic homeless guy to the level of "noble savage."

"In many cases, he takes what would otherwise be refuse and uses it. His idea of air conditioning is all-natural. His heat is borrowed from what would otherwise be wasted. And money? He'd blow it all on drugs, to shorten his own life." -bj-

Sorry, bustinJ, this won't stand the test of logic. How many homeless guys have burned down their hovels, trying to keep warm?

And that's only a symbol of a larger set of lifestyle choices. I posited giving a homeless man $100K. You suggest his greatest contribution to Humanity will be spending it on drugs for his own happy, homeless suicide.

But if I had given him a million, or a 100 million - our homeless guy would turn into the worst possible profligate waster of natural resources - before his drug fueled suicide.
==========
And we're actually, you and I, very close to one of the essential questions of the human condition here, BJ.

Is is better to act without knowing?
Or to know without acting?

And is the ultimate sin -
to act while knowing?

Look at who is committing le Crimes, eh.

I can see how the NAACP and the SPLC could support pro-immigrant positions from the point of view of protecting rights. An assault on the rights of anyone is an assault on the rights of all, in that I agree.

Having said that they are both misguided because in so doing they neglect our own citizens and their missions. MS-DOG has always told me that you take care of family first, friends next and if you have anything left to give then you take care of everyone else. I don't see it quite so simply but my ears go up and my nose sniffs trouble whenever I see the natural order of this turned on it's head.

I'm at a loss to explain it. The emphasis on trying to make our society more equitable seems to be missing by taking this approach. Immigrants compete against our own citizens. They bring down wages and contribute to unemployment. Anybody who disagrees with that would probably think that everybody should get a pony and a free barn to put it in.

The truth is our society has been committed to inequality and promoting an every man for himself mentality for quite a while now. Immigration serves the plutocracy by giving the country cheap labor and keeps wages for everyone else down.

As top dog I would demand a system of registration for all illegals. By registering illegal immigrants would earn the right to stay and work for a couple of years. Some would be also be allowed to pursue citizenship depending on if their entire family is here. How long they have been here and it would matter if they have 'American' children. After 4 months any who have not registered would be automatically deported as would any newcomers.

Legal immigration would end but strict one for one reciprocity agreements could be made on a nation by nation basis. We all know by now that k-dog knows how to count and net immigration must become zero.

Overpopulation is a serious problem and as a nation we cannot address it without stopping immigration. We need to take care of our own people first and foremost.

Back in the 1770's, during the American Revolution, it became necessary for a government to form in case the colonists won separation from Britain. The original idea was to have a loose confederation among the separate sovereign states, and a central government with the authority to wage war and enter into agreements with other countries. The document that did all this was called, in short, the Articles of Confederation, and that was the 1st form of the government of the colonies. When the last of the 13 states ratified the Articles in 1781, it was put into operation, and that was how the 13 colonies worked for several years.

But there were groups of nationalists who wanted a strong central government. They used the example that in going to war, the government had no ways to pay for it since under the Articles, Congress had no power to tax. Congress would have to go to the states and request money to run a war, and the nationalists were concerned some of the states might not pay. The nationalists (federalists?) also used other examples to make their claim that a weak central government wasn't a good idea.

The federalists lobbied continually for a new form of government. Eventually they won out and the Articles were scrapped and replaced by the Constitution.

I guess you could say that the institution of a new government in 1789 was really the result of a second revolution in which nationalists and confederationalists internally battled for the future course of America.

It is very interesting to speculate what would have happened to America if the Articles of Confederation weren't dropped.

Why not levy heavy fines, jail time, and revoke the corporate offender's corporate charter/licence? These are the real criminals. Why play games with these fucks?

Although statistics are available that show Blacks and Hispanics commit the majority of reported crimes in America, I'm not sure I agree with your 98% figure because many Hispanics are Black as well. Does this mean when a Black Hispanic commits a crime, it is counted as both an Hispanic crime AND a Black crime? Just wondering, because if it is so, the percentages are skewed higher when one crime is counted twice.

an?
===========

No, your first inclination was right, it's "a." The fact that "once" begins with a vowel and follows "a" is not the relevant factor. The relevant factor is the beginning sound of the following word. "Once," (pronounced "wunce") does not begin with a vowel sound but a consonant sound.

That is actually the key but I hadn't mentioned it. Why spend huge amounts of cash on a border patrol keeping people out when once they get in they can easily find work.

Corporations who hire illegally would have charters suspended and assets auctioned off to new owners who would respect the law. For every CEO that would go to jail for violating immigration law millions of dollars would be saved by having a smaller border patrol. The feedback loop would be broken.

Bill, I understand that this is the official common view of history, but the official common view of history is, in almost all cases, a lie and a propaganda fabrication. I would encourage you to seek alternative views to it, to seek the truth. Never believe official propaganda, and especially American official propaganda. It is for unthinking dupes.

Can you explain the cultural and/or hisorical meaning of two tiny singing girls guarded by Mothra? What are the singing?

Don't know, Bill. But White crime statistics are inflated because Hispanic crime is thrown in with our's. But they get their own category when their a victim of a hate crime. So they literally can't commit a hate crime due to legalistic ledgermain.

Hispanic is a culture not a race. Nontheless, the vast majority of Hispanic immigrants are Mestizos - meaning an White/Indian mix. There is such a thing as a White or Black Hispanic. Zimmerman is not however - he is a classic Mestizo.

To complicate further, every country in Central America has it's own definition of what Black and White are. So it's meaningless? Not at all: scientific definitions are one thing and cultural definition another. Some Hispanic Negroes don't consider themselves Negro, but they are nontheless.

The most dangerous mixture of all is the Zambo - the Black/Indian. Luckily there are few of these so far.

I'm not sure I agree with your 98% figure because many Hispanics are Black as well.
============

Yes Bean, I too was skeptical of these stats for the same reason - the double counting of black Hispanics - but I didn't want to muddy the water. I wanted to keep that nice tidy 98% figure so I could make my little joke about the remaining 2% being Jews (for Vlad's pleasure).

I wonder how Zimmerman (shooter of Trayvon) would be counted, white?, Hispanic?, Jewish? In a lengthy article a few days ago the NY Times referred to him as Hispanic. If he had been receiving a Nobel Prize would they have said he was Jewish?

Who's the NY Times? Why should we care what they have to say about anything?

I found this definition in the on-line Encyclopedia Brittanica:

mestizo, plural mestizos, feminine mestiza, any person of mixed blood. In Central and South America it denotes a person of combined Indian and European extraction. In some countries—e.g., Ecuador—it has acquired social and cultural connotations; a pure-blooded Indian who has adopted European dress and customs is called a mestizo (or cholo). In Mexico the description has been found so variable in meaning that it has been abandoned in census reports. In the Philippines “mestizo” denotes a person of mixed foreign (e.g., Chinese) and native ancestry.

Isn't that interesting? Technically, the word is for anybody with mixed blood. So, technically, again, most American Blacks, who as a group have some white blood, are Mestizo. In our country, I think most people would say there must be Native American blood in there somewhere, but according to the way I read the definition, it can be any type.

Taking this definition to its logical conclusion, we all ultimately are descendants of various other primitive peoples that pre-date Whites. So we are all mestizos. I'm not trying to be mocking, cute, or sarcastic, Vlad, I really think this is so, if my interpretation of the definition is correct.

For every CEO that would go to jail for violating immigration law...

They should be sent to regular maximum security prisons, like Trenton, and not electronically monitored in their own mansions, not sent to a rehabilitation facility, not sent to a country club federal prison (like the Federal Correctional Institution Danbury), not to a Federal Prison camp (which have been referred to as "Club Fed"), not by renting cells at pay-to-stay facilities, not let off for "time-served" (which might be a few days in a county lock up).

The CEOs should be given the opportunity to do hard time and pay their debt to society for hiring illegal immigrants. It will never happen, not even in a K-Dog administration.

I would encourage you to seek alternative views to it, to seek the truth. Never believe official propaganda, and especially American official propaganda. - Mika's advice to Bean
==============

Yes Bean, never ever believe anything you learn from history books and myriad other historical novels and sources. They are all lies and a giant propaganda conspiracy. What you must do is change your views to "the truth" as espoused by an annonymous blog commenter who goes by the name Mika (or Methusela depending on the whim of the moment).

See my post above to Vlad, Q. I think every liberal wants to disown Zimmerman from their own race, so the Blacks would say he's Hispanic, the Jews will say he's Hispanic and the Whites will say he's Black AND Hispanic. Vlad is right, though - he's a Hispanic with Indian blood.

And if Zimmerman won the Nobel Prize, I'd say he's a White Jew.

You are probably right, but I'd like to think it's not impossible. Be the positive Asoka.

The CEOs should be given the opportunity to do hard time and pay their debt to society for hiring illegal immigrants.
============

I assume you forgot to use the Sarcasm ON and OFF signs when you wrote the sentence above since you believe in immigration, both legal and illegal on a more-the-merrier basis. Actually, those CEOs should be rewarded in some way shouldn't they?

Bill, I would recommend to you the material made available by the Mises Institute. The podcasts are available via iTunes University. Or you can download the podcasts and books directly from the Mises web site.

Who's the NY Times? Why should we care what they have to say about anything?
===============

You make a good point. When a black youth is shot in some obscure town in central Florida who better to take your account of the shooting from than the Haifa Gazzett?

Did you find yourself agreeing with me and get a little scared?

Haifa Gazzett
Yr a 1000 laughs!

What account would that be? There was no account given. There were only simple questions asked. Simple questions that any person who's not an unthinking propaganda parrot would ask. Questions that you obviously failed to ask.

I like your thoughts Bill. Time and time again throughout history, the laws of physical attraction seemingly defy exterior imposition of sexual allegiance or loyalty to one's own ethnic group. An acquaintance from the state of Michoacan, Mexico once told me that, despite the utterly barbarous acts the Spanish Conquistadors inflicted upon the natives of what is now Mexico, native women were still unable to resist the tall, bearded Spanish men from Europe donned in warrior regalia. In other words, rape eventually yielded to consent as did fear to passion.

Of course it cuts both ways - yes it does. (As I typed that I was thinking of Clint Eastwood chasing his gorgeous Indian female trainer up the side of a cliff after she offered him a glimpse of her magnificent burnt sienna areola's in a scene from "The Eiger Sanction".)

The Guardian's Kevin Powell called the USA Supreme Court debate "surreal" in his Monday column.

"Wasn't the point to make sure the richest and most powerful nation on the planet could protect its own people, as other nations do?" he wrote.

"If Americans are promised not just liberty but life and happiness, is there not a constitutional right to affordable healthcare?"

I'm still waiting for you to answer my question. Why should we care about what the NYTimes CIA propoganda outlet has to say about anything?

Time and time again throughout history, the laws of physical attraction seemingly defy exterior imposition of sexual allegiance or loyalty to one's own ethnic group.

Buck, if the above were as all-pervasively true as you are implying the human race would have taken on a consistantly mocha latte hue umpteen thousand years ago. The truth of the matter, however, is that by and large birds of a feather stick together and that is why we have various racial groupings and characteristics easily distinguisable to the naked eye right up to the present day.

OY VEY!

So back in your single days, and after a night of twirling around the dance floor, Lena Horne would not have been welcome in in your bed?

Somehow I find that hard to believe. Beyond that, I wonder if we're talking preference or socially imposed choices. Probably a bit of both and that's why I should have qualified my assertion with "brave people" defying social conventions. Bottom line: the desire/physical attraction remains despite social stigma. But not all have the courage to act upon these desires.

And I cannot discount the brutality of patriarchal factor - century after unremitting century. Put another way, men have and will kill women who mingle outside the defined parameters imposed upon them by their spouses, fathers, brothers etc. And if not kill them, control them with economic measures. Peer beyond the burqa long enough and there resides a frightened, brutalized female manipulated by the puppet strings of her male master. But it's not just certain strains of Islamic culture but nearly all cultures who have engaged in the oppression of women, and by extension, free choice of sexual partners.

A "women's choice" scares the shit out of fearful, shivering men and they react from the opposite side of the fear/anger coin, brutalizing beauty into submission as a result.

Interesting but overly simplistic.

Proto-humans were not walking around the plains of Africa swapping mates between groups singing we are all one big happy family for four million years. When one group met another group one group would generally kill and have the other for lunch. The idea of 'a mate' assumes monogamy which did not come into vogue until the horticultural revolution occurred ten thousand years ago.

The t-shirt sniffing women give the impression that women have been free to choose mates for thousands and millions of years when in fact women had no say in the matter until very recent times.

Most of the diseases our immune system fights off are diseases we caught from animals as a result of their domestication all which happened within the last ten thousand years. The common cold it turns out comes from horses. I would not take the 'immune system gene' thing at face value. Some serious explanation is needed here. Bands of proto-humans roaming Africa were small and isolated. Violent death, not disease was far more of a concern to them.

But hey I'm a dog, what do I know. I'm sorry about the Hydatid cysts and tapeworms you guys caught from us.


You're absolutely right. And to take this even further, our local Jihadi in Vatican robes, aka Vlad, fits this psychological archetype perfectly. It also explains the birth of Islam by the Vatican. Because Islam is just Eastern Roman Catholic Imperialism masquerading as another "religion".

Technically, mestizo just means mixed. But it has come to mean a specific type of mixture. Language evolves after all - becoming more particular and adapted to the needs of the users - almost like evolution. There are some, believe it or not, who envision evolution as going BACKWARDS - towards some kind of undifferentiated type - as if protoplasm was not the origin but the goal.

Whites were well on their way to becoming a new Species. This is our Destiny - not to mix with every Tom, Dick, and Harry type of primitive tropical humanity. These people either now evolved higher features or mixed went backwards by mixing with the tag ends of Homo Erectus.

If you want to be true to your vision, you must open the borders of Israel to ALL. And Israel must begin to recognize mixed Jew/Gentile marriages. Surely no decent Jew wants to be a hypocite like Jared Diamond?

Sometimes there are good reasons not to always do what part of you wants to do, Buck. Have you ever resisted a desire? Of course - it's part of being a human being. Why is this any different?

Apropos of nothing, except your themes, Jim...

I work in a large urban public school district in the south. Apparently, there is now some state law that requires school districts to save energy. My building is fairly new, and built, of course with not one single window that opens.
In fit of genius, the A/C is cut off on the weekends and at 3:15pm in the afternoons when kids are dismissed.

Last weekend it was 90*, so returning to work on Monday morning, we entered a hotbox. It was stiffling, every adult and child was quickly dripping sweat without any relief from an open window. It took until Tuesday to cool down the building.

The custodians who work until 11:30pm at night are to work in a hot, closed up building as we march on toward summer temperatures. By 6pm, it's getting miserable in the building.

Jim has written repeatedly that any building over 6 stories will not be usable in a post-peak future. Look around, any new building in the past 20 or so years has big windows that don't open. For entreprenuers out there, window replacement will be a growth area. I predict demand to outpace supply. Windows will have to be able to be opened for a building to be usable.

And, lastly, from time to time, I read the "zesty" hate mail Jim receives. Why do people feel so strongly? Is it the message or is it really racism? So perplexed here...

Hey Buck, don't get me wrong, I have partaken of dark fruit but never with an eye toward anything permanent. When I did it was more an act of hormonal desperation, a crying need for a place warm, snug and slippery. I always wore galoshes and paid the fare. Truth is, we used each other. [The generic] she was no more interested in me as a mate than I was her. It was a business transaction without even a facade of genuine personal interest from which I suffered post-coital depression before the door was closed behind me. I did not inquire about her family nor her "major." This is not to say that for some it couldn't or doesn't happen but for me the cultural divide would be too vast. I hope this doesn't come across as me thinking my shit don't stink.

I imagine the HVAC is programmable. From experience you now know it takes a while to get the rooms cooled down. Ask the school administration to have maintenance program the A/C to come back on at 3:15 p.m. Sunday.

There's a lot you could do. First, exchange your car for a Vespa scooter. When you absolutely need to use a car for a few hours, rent a Zip car. There's much more you can do, but we'll start there.

"First, exchange your car for a Vespa scooter."

Let me tell you about the '81 honda passport (70cc 3-speed). I used that thing from 83-85 for at least 1600 miles, and it consistently got 125MPG. However, it barely managed 47MPH...

I only have the 400cc '81 Honda now, that I bought in '83. It used to get 65MPG, but now, at 24k total miles, barely hits 50MPG. I spent '93-'02 using nothing but my feet, rollerblades (3k miles), bicycle (5k miles) and public transport. However, after 9 years without a *guzzlah*, I got the CM400 out of storage, and (have) put ~800 miles a year on it, ever since...

That's *HARDLY* a start. More, liek, a show-stoppah...

No, goddammit, Vlad does not win again.

Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ??????

A wild guess by the dog. As soccer is almost completely unknown in the U.S. except for the:

Soccer Mom Who is:

One of the most despicable species of woman known anywhere. Aged 30 to 50 years she resides in an overrated suburban neighborhood where she drives a SUV, to cart around 2.3 kids. In addition to soccer, her spawn participates in karate, ballet, basketball, and hockey. Activities which are believed to cultivate competitive selfish skills ideal for corporate management.

Never disciplined as they are perfect in all ways these kids grow up to be perfect consuming assholes without regard for anyone but themselves.

I'm thinking the CCP would do this since they would not know that despite widespread use of the 'soccer mom' label soccer has very little interest to most Americans.

Does anybody else have a better guess on who would marginalize the dangerous progressive thoughts that coexist with the vile racial filth which also competes to hide the progressive and dangerous reality based views represented here?

Its just a wild guess but who else would bother?

Well concerning this comment:

"Unqualified writer spews hatred"

Google this guy. He is a contributor to Rolling Stone. He doesn't have the credentials to even interview the kind of professionals that are qualified to even write this technical material. He's no engineer. I submit that he simply visits websites and "cuts and pastes".

Well one of his most loyal fans is a engineer who finds no fault with any of the technical material presented. Me.

Further an accomplished published author with multiple book titles has no need to cut and paste.

We should be gratified that there is so much fear to reality based thinking. Perhaps a tipping point in public consciousness is coming.

Ix,
The feedback is just for buying, not selling.

But no one is going the to waste a 100% rating for a few dollars, so if you don't buy the book by Sat morning, I will :-)

I may have hit the nail on the head. That last chunk of nonsense turned out to be Chinese translated to Japanese which I in turn translated to English. That's something new and suspicious.

Im just sayin, As always I still have an open mind. I could be wrong.

However I don't think an individual would plug our pipes quite this way so I suspect an organized effort. An individual would not be so anonymous and in some way would present a dissenting view here and there. An organized effort to make the comment blog hard to read would do exactly this.

"Im just sayin, As always I still have an open mind. I could be wrong.
However I don't think an individual would plug our pipes quite this way so I suspect an organized effort. An individual would not be so anonymous and in some way would present a dissenting view here and there." -K, the 9-

Nice theory, K, but I'll present a dissenting view. I think it is an individual, probably Spidey/Tegmark/8m/Olde soixante-neuf.

Spidey has rarely been interactive on CFN, despite many polite and well-intentioned efforts to engage him. And 8M has a habit of presenting tiny bits of useful information, such as this little gem:

"Personally he’s skilled a thrilling time period of time...." -8M/Spidey-

But Spidey/8M is skilled at hiding his little "gems" of "truth" inside such amazing rubbish "heaps" of superfluous "words" - that no sane person will bother to search for the "gems" for "long."

Go to "I love philosophy" and you can see as much of this as you "desire" to see.

Additionally, Spidey, with His Trillions of Skyscrapers - is totally averse to the overriding theme of this CFN webspace. So he's doing his own mini-spam attack, or whatever.

One more piece of evidence, K9, is based on the idea that the old posts on CFN are not locked. In other words, any poster or Chinese SpamBot could post trillions of messages that no one would read - onto last week's or last year's comment threads.

A bot would be doing this.
A "real" person would not.
"He" would only post to the current week,
to annoy "and" obfuscate.

My $0.02, for what "it's" "worth."

One more thing -
Concerning this Voyage of the Bamned -
On which we are presently embarked.

My advice has always been to create a new screename, like Progress4Conserve, and jump right back into the fray.

But I heard from Lbend the other day by email, and that method will not work for her. Apparently she is getting a "403 ban" or something similar - every time she tries to log onto CFN., even with a newly created screenname. She says she may be back in a few weeks - maybe.

====================
My other advice to LBend, whom I have not yet emailed back, is to restart your router, when you are having trouble with CFN, and the rest of the internet is working OK for you.

Kunstler's banning works by identifying and blocking a specific IP address. Many ISP's
assign a new IP, of sorts, every time your router breaks the connection with the ISP.

Of course, if you are on a college or business network and don't have control of your router, this won't work.

There is IP "spoofing" software that will work in cases like this to get you back onto a site like CFN - but that's beyond my level of experience.


That's *HARDLY* a start. More, liek, a show-stoppah...

Absolutely. Very impressive.

The next step is to not use air conditioning in your residence during the summer. Just keep the windows open and use electric fans. And drink plenty of water and lemonade (hold the ice tea. it dehydrates you and leads to kidney stones).

My guess is it is someone who is bitter, maybe racist, misogynist, and a misanthrope.

Probably someone with computer knowledge. Maybe someone who has taught computer science, maybe even taught computer science at a community college.

Probably someone like a retired computer science teacher who, being retired, has lots of time on his hands to fill CFN with spamming nuisance posts.

Maybe someone who recently left CFN after carefully setting up the spamming nuisance posts and then used them as an excuse to leave. Eh? E?

THAT FUCKING CHINESE SPAM is way over the top (soixant neuf?! LOL 6969). K-Dog, quoting me with stuff I didn't even write - *RIGHT*!!! Air conditioning - the past 2 years I only ran my air conditioner for 8 hours over 3 days - just to make sure it still worked (it's only 3 years old)...

MESSAGES FROM THE MOON [STRUCK?]

So whos behind the clothing ads?

Any Owsers left out there? If so, I direct you to WSJ article today about Robert Wolf, Wall Street Power Broker and President of Investing Banking at UBS. Wolf is described as Obama's 'best friend', chief fundraiser, main golf partner, frequent visitor to the White House, and the guy who arranges the $38,500 per plate campaign fundraisers in lower Manhattan. They were introduced by, get this, billionaire George Soros. Didn't UBS receive a sizable bailout in 2009? ($45 billion) Turns out in 2008 securities and investment firms contributes over $10 million to Obama in 2008 and may match that this year. So what about it Owsers, are you all being played for suckers?

In the same edition, concerning the flying lawsuits between Current TV and Keith Oberman, another champion of Owsers everywhere, there's this, "Current shot back in its suit, saying it spent heavily on Mr. Oberman. In one instance the network described paying $50,000 to 8 different limousine companies in 8 months because 'none of the previous 7 were able to meet his patrician standards for how to drive him around NYC'".

Now that's what a call a true 'Limousine Liberal".

You f----g Libs, 'specially the Big Libs, never cease to amaze me.

Air conditioning - the past 2 years I only ran my air conditioner for 8 hours over 3 days - just to make sure it still worked (it's only 3 years old)...

Excellent. Step three is to caulk around all doors, windows, and baseboards to seal all cracks, weatherstrip the windows and doors, and install insulated window coverings inside your residence. And insulate your hot water pipes and heating ducts.

"Step three is to caulk around all doors, windows, and baseboards"

Nah! I prefer fresh air to *CREEP INTO* my living space. My grandma on my dad's side did that total insulation scheme, and it was almost unbreathable going in their house...

"And insulate your hot water pipes and heating ducts"

No - just turn your water heater on for 30 minutes, just prior to when you take your *WEEKLY* shower. I use cold water for everything else (face scrub, armpits scrub, *privates* scrub).

Who said anything about total insulation? Unless the walls are hyper-insulated, you should get plenty of fresh air through them.

No - just turn your water heater on for 30 minutes, just prior to when you take your *WEEKLY* shower. I use cold water for everything else (face scrub, armpits scrub, *privates* scrub).

You can do that too. Most people can't get to that stage in one step though.

Happy Easter CFNers!

UNTHINKABLE ?

Take the number of atoms in a centimeter of Matter, so maybe 10 ^ 9. How many combinations of matter can be perfromed by that number of atoms ? 10 different atoms gives you 10 ^ ( 10 ^ 9 ), a very high number and such. So Matter can combine in so many ways, it can express a combination of possibilities, so in that centimeter you may have many combinations that express a Mind, an Observer, a Lifeform, an Item undergoing some kind of Experience, a combination of a brain interacting and such. And the mindform may be diffused, may be under many interacting levels, there may be many will power effects reciprocally between entities within the Matter, many different universes and therefore laws of physics. All of those atoms combining to create a new universe as perceived and observed by a subset of the group of atoms acting as an observer, etc. So this is the real parallel universe effect, this is where the real parallel universes live, within the possible combinations of matter creating new brain designs therefore new laws of physics and new universes, new rules of engagements of a subset of matter with its surrounding matter or containing matter environment or with the environment contained within itself and such (or vice versa, it doesn't matter, inside or outside, larger or smaller, any rules of engagments are possible) and each new combination of matter creates a new universe with new laws of physics and new kinds of Observers in the form of new Brain designs, new Interactor designs and such.

And in fact, there are many more possible laws of physics than particles of matter, the number of universes greatly exceeds the quantity of matter used to express the combinations corresponding to a new universe, and as such there are many more Information Relationships than quantity of Matter and Mass Energy itself, as if Matter is just a substrate, an excuse to express relationships that become alive and become Matter undergoing Experiences, etc.

But of course all of this is using our logic and view of the universe as if it were the absolute, the total containing view, as if our view is an absolute: but it is not, it is just one universe amongst many trillions of others, all equally true or false, all equally valid views, all views that have their own synchronized and internal coherence but only because they do not enter in contact with other views, other formats (worlds formatted according to another system of symbols and rules) that would render the view confused and no longer coherent. But these intermediate states exist also and such.

But it is difficult for us to accept that our laws of physics are essentially false, or just a make believe, arbitrary and valid just for our very distinct and specific and quirk design: but it is so, even though this discussion itself is using logic itself to justify and discover all of this, and logic itself is a quirk, but so then this brings us close to the edge, the edge of reality as discovered by logic.

So all of the possible Minds and Brainforms and Observers and Experiencing Machines within a Block of Matter, a Box of Matter cycling through all possible combinations of different atom types and interactions and forces, each creating a new universe with new laws of physics, and yet even this large scale abstract view of the Box of Matter is just a puny view of something much larger, as the new Minds inside that block of Matter have many more deeper and more powerful abstractions and formats and rules of engagements and such.

But Absolutes then do exist: our view of all is the absolute, even though we would like to have a more relative and detached view, we format all in our logic and worldview no matter what, the absolute to be true would have to be independent of any material configuration, would have to be enternal, would express itself and remain alive no matter what happens to the underlying physical machine expressing the mind: as if our mind would have to remain alive forever no matter what happens to its physical support, even if it explodes, our mind would remain intact and be independent of matter, that would be a real Absolute.

So absolutes don't exist or do they ? As if you ask "Does God Exist ?" and you answer (the only true and correct answer) "I don't Know", that is the end of all debates, there is nothing else to say, it is forever an unknown: the same with modified Brains and Minds: that is the end of all debates and discussions it is forever an unknown...

"So whos behind the clothing ads?"

*PIMP-SLAP*

Whomever it is they are no friend of the pack that's for sure.

One thing to consider is timing. I'm on the west coast and the time span of my posts may seem a bit odd to someone on the east coast sometimes. When it is Midnight here it is three AM where you are. Last night I was up late having had a 'nap' due to personal circumstances yesterday that I won't get into and are irrelevant.

So last night the country is asleep and it is very late even for me. My last post, the 他媽的混蛋 with which I replied to our chickenshit masked man or men was made after I had added the short Craig Dilworth interview I found to the Video Adventures page on my site.

Following this there are several posts by our asian nemesis before you reply to me. Timing is relevant here as well. Since you are on the east coast its natural that you would make the first 'daytime' post.

So who makes posts in the middle of the night when all dogs are sleeping. I'm thinking it is someone who has gone home for the day and is sleeping right now.

Every shipping container we get makes us weaker and china stronger. They have the incentive and the (racist, misogynist, and a misanthrope) theory while possible does not fit well here. There is too much organization and control behind the effort for the average nutjob.

We are a motley crew here and have many different opinions yet no serious CFN commenter advocates the joys of over consumption and excess should continue. We are all outside the box here and the shipping container box is what it is all about. Big steel boxes roll out of our port east on I-90 behind semi-trucks to all the big boxes in the lower 48 every day.

Everyone posting on CFN wants those boxes to stop. Everyone here advocates self sufficiency in one form or another. It is in the best interest of someone who wants that flow to continue to marginalize us and dilute our efforts.

[sarcasm on] Who could that be? [sarcasm off]

Could it be an existing organization with a long history of intellectual suppression from a country with an atrocious history of human rights abuses that is systematically destroying the cultures of the Wieger Chinese and the Tibetan People?

Have you guys ever considered borrowing TLE from your local library? I checked my town library and found 5 books there by JHK including TLE.

"My last post, the 他媽的混蛋"

You keep pulling that sh!t, and you'll be scroll-by material. Just sayin'! Heh.

And while we "scroll by", let's have a gander [Q] at the AMAZON BASIN on google satellite maps. Find me a square mile that doesn't have *LOGGING* roads laid out.

So who makes posts in the middle of the night when all dogs are sleeping.

=============

If you go back to last year's posts, and look at who was posting at 2 a.m. PST or 3 a.m. PST, it was consistently one poster, who has considerable computer knowledge because he taught computer science at a community college before he recently retired.

d00d! That's when I poast! And I never whuz a *teacher* - hehehe.

no serious CFN commenter advocates the joys of over consumption and excess should continue.

=================

Amen to that ... or should I say woof woof!

I have used considerable bandwidth promoting permaculture, adobe housing, alternative energy sources, simple living, global population control (as opposed to being anti-immigration), etc.

I know P2C is going to say it is for naught because I make all my proposals within a context of us all getting along together, welcoming as many who want to come here to live with us as one big multicultural family, in the spirit of America and in honor of our immigrant ancestors.

Dood! Ixnei did not exist two or three years ago. The teacher man did.

I'll be returning to my real life for a while after this post but I have a question.

You advocate immigration without restriction yet how many immigrants come here to practice permaculture, to build adobe housing, or to use alternative energy?

They come here to get a 'better life' which invariably means buying stuff, keeping up with the Joneses consuming like mad and kissing the ass of 'the man'.

I remember an Indian man being interviewed in a local newspaper a few years ago (when we still had one) who was returning to India with his family because he wanted to raise his children in India because America was not 'spiritual' enough for him, he did not like our 'values'.

The article mentioned that all the possessions the family had acquired while here were being sent to India would go inside a shipping container filled to the top.

I'm sure the family was feeling very 'spiritual' the day their shipping container arrived in Mumbai.

Maybe they felt so spiritual they gave everything to the poor.

Population control begins at home and that requires stopping immigration or you shit on the rights of every American living here no matter what color they are.

So how many on CFN are married and/or have children?

"If you go back to last year's posts"

Say *WUT*?!?

"which invariably means buying stuff, keeping up with the Joneses consuming like mad and kissing the ass of 'the man'."

w00f!

Just one more comment.

I'm two thirds through the book I have been ranting and raving about this week and I've noticed that near the end of the book that immigration is discussed. I don't know what I will find there yet but it's possible I may be changing my mind.

Or not, we shall see.

Just one son Kaiho. I foolishly belived in the 70's and 80's that having only one child would be the responsible thing to do.

Stupid me.

Meaning you should have had more, or less?

Open you heart to your brothers if you would rise from the dead with Christ. Remember, the body itself will be as a sown seed.

Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone. But if it should fall and die it will bring forth much fruit.

Oh, time to *add*, I s'pose. Hah, it does get tiresome... 4 strait years of political REPUG mongering - just *imagine* if 90% of the US were registered Independent... LOL!!!

Do you have any idea how stupid you sound by suggesting that Eleuthero posts this crap? You don't like his moderate racial realism. Fine. Why slander him though? Just speak to the issue itself.

I hope for your sake that you don't really believe this. Cuz it's about on the level of Mika's "the Vatican wrote the Talmud" stuff.

The problem, as I see it, is that you are looking at this is as some sort of solution. It is not.

I was flipping through an actual Book Of Mormon the other day and could only conclude these people are regular wingnuts of a typical variety.

I stored food in 2007- guess what. That food is worthless today. That is a complete waste, an negative investment of capital. Even the transient and false sense of security having a bunch of canned food is a debit.

As someone who studies and participates in agricultural society, Time and Energy is much better invested in stopping this global train-wreck than preparing for the aftermath of its collapse.

If the LDS people weren't wingnut idiots, they'd use their considerable wealth and influence to stop the global trainwreck. But they are not- they are wingnuts. Part of the problem their preps are intended to mitigate. That is like wearing a hockey mask because you have a habit of kicking yourself in the face and because of this you brag about how sensible you are.

And you dropped telling me that I was better off heating my house with coal-produced electricity than with my 90% efficient wood heater fired with deadfall timber.

You sure have been wrong a lot lately, Bustin.

Look, BJ, I'm mainly storing red winter wheat, black beans, and pinto beans in #10 cans. The stuff will last for 30 years - maybe a lot longer, in my cool dry basement. And if you will look at one of my earlier posts, you will see that I have successfully experimented with sprouting those three seeds AND that I have them in my garden, growing now.

If you don't think some sproutable, plantable seeds - and a few weeks worth of boring stored food - would be a welcome addition to many of the potential energy/weather/economic/political/choose/your/own/poison disruptions that might occur in an uncertain future.

so tell us, what's the data from 1813? and then 1823? and then 1901? when did this series of data begin, what's the start date?

is it longer than 10,000 years so we can have some sort of fairly long timeline?

You expect majikal "tech" solutions to be delivered to you, *just-in-time*, by someone else. *YOU* do not want to put forth any effort whatsoever, in order to progress toward any sort of sustainable/renewable future. You just reap the rewards, and dump the problems on future generations.

Fred Reed writes:

"We see this in America with the Chinese, who are studious, industrious, abide by the laws, and do not set themselves in opposition to the ambient European ethos."

The Chinese may be surpassing most Westerners when it comes to appreciating and performing many forms of Western/European art and culture. Most everyone knows about the great Chinese classical musicians. Likewise there is a school of absolutely fantastic Chinese realist/impressionistic/narrative/historical painters who were heavily influenced by the old Soviet school of social realism. Take a look at the link of the brilliant Mian Situ below and see for yourself.

But what does that say about Chinese culture and isn't it more evidence that American/European culture is, in fact, the dominant world culture? The mullahs and ayatollahs don't fear American weapons nearly as much as the fear American culture.

But back to the Chinese painters emulating European painting. Is it just tracing the stylistic periphery of the original purveyors of a style who formed and arrived at their own authentic,idiosyncratic contours from the inside out, where internal passion pulsates to the edge of individual capability and proclivity?

Or are styles and by extension, various cultures, more or less universal expressions after the initial period of discovery? Certainly Mian Situ seems to have found himself in a Western style of painting.

Yes, population control begins at home, which is why I chose to get a vasectomy before having any kids.

How many immigrants do you know, K-dog? And how many immigrant votes do you expect to get with misconceptions like this:

They come here to get a 'better life' which invariably means buying stuff, keeping up with the Joneses consuming like mad...

Here is the truth of the matter: Money sent home by migrants constitutes the second largest financial inflow to many developing countries, exceeding international aid. Estimates of remittances to developing countries vary from International Fund for Agricultural Development's US$301 billion to the World Bank's US$250 billion. You can't send such sums back to the home country if you are "consuming like mad" ... your stereotypes of immigrants have just lost you my vote.

============

Vlad, I hope everyone here will read the FRED essay you linked in your comment. It is simple yet brilliant. Any honest reader will recognize the truth in it...the willful disdain of blacks for written and spoken English. Their very names erected like in insuperable wall.

There is no key sentence. Every word, from first to last is key. He used a word I had to look up: immiscibility - the inability to be mixed. He is speaking of blacks and whites, of course, prompted by the Trayvon case. I, myself, have harped on the unassimilability of blacks, wondering in frustration if it is because they are unable or unwilling. Perhaps from his unique position on this blog, Asoka will tell us his thoughts on the FRED essay.

an insuperable wall.

Perhaps from his unique position on this blog, Asoka will tell us his thoughts on the FRED essay.

================

The whole premise of immiscibility is bogus.

Fred says: "we have millions of illiterates, or close enough that it doesn’t make any difference."

In 1976, black students made up 9.4 percent of all degree-giving institutions. By 2007, the African American population on college campuses has increased to 13.1 percent.

In comparison, white students made up 82.6 percent of secondary education in 1976 and 64.4 percent in 2007.

SOURCE: National Center for Education Statistics

About 6.8 percent of newly married couples reported marrying outside their race or ethnicity in 1980. That figure jumped to about 14.6 percent of newlyweds in 2008.

Especially noteworthy is the fact that interracial marriage rates have gone up sharply for blacks, as well as other groups:

The African-American population also saw increases in interracial marriage, with the number of blacks participating in such marriages roughly tripling since 1980. About 16 percent of African-Americans overall are in an interracial marriage.

SOURCE: Pew Research Center

African-American illiteracy? No. African-American college graduation rates are up.

Immiscibility? No. More interracial marriages than ever.

I am confident that the Supreme Court will not strike down the Affordable Care Act, because to do so would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.

The conservative Supreme Court justices are not judicial activists and do not believe in legislating from the bench. Republicans have consistently criticized activist Courts who overturn the will of the people.

Lester Brown is the founder and former president of the Worldwatch Institute, named as one of the top ten sustainable development research organizations by Globescan Survey of Sustainability Experts.

The Washington Post has called Brown, “one of the world's most influential thinkers." More recently Brown founded and is the current president of the Earth Policy Institute (EPI).

The EPI has estimated that it will cost roughly 200 billion dollars a year to restore the Earth’s environment and meet global social goals.

This figure was published in Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization (EPI, 2009). For a detailed breakdown of the Earth Policy Institute’s proposed budget, see Chapter 10, Section “Plan B Budget: Additional Annual Expenditures Needed to Meet Social Goals and to Restore the Earth.”

Our Cultural Story from Science
-- Elisabet Sahtouris

in less than one minute!

It's very telling that the same fuck that criticized me as a "disgrace to my race", is the same fuck that talks about the unassimilability of blacks. As if, anybody, let alone blacks, needs to accommodate themselves to your fucked up degenerate imperialist society. How about YOU first assimilate into normal human beings? How's that for a challenge, you degenerate Roman beasts.

They actually have a weird process of coming up with some of these names. I'll link to it if I can remember where. Of course once created then these names becomes a tradition of their own.

Perhaps Malcolm X started it by calling Christian names "slave names".

So my last post has drawn two opinions which, if I may paraphrase, are:

Asoka: "FRED is full of shit when he says blacks and whites are immiscible. In fact they are mixing quite nicely, thank you."

(If so, asks Q, what's all this hubbub about race relations in the US I keep reading about? A figment of my imagination? A stirring of the pot by the MSM to sell papers and air time? Does a rising rate of inter-marriage constitute a smooth transition to one harmonious culture? Hardly.)

Mika has a different slant: "You're damn right they're unwilling to assimilate. Where do you get the audacity...etc, etc, etc." (Q agrees, it's unwillingness. If a first generation Chinese American speaks English indistinguishable from the majority culture and a tenth generation African American does not [I think FRED referred to "unfathomable mutterings"] it must be an act of the will.)

Boy I'm glad I don't give a shit about race, believe it is largely a cultural artefact, and don't spend any time or energy letting such biases distort my perception, namely, that miscegenation is the rule and trend, and this establishment doesn't really change anything about the narrative of multicultural America.

As for the entertaining legends, national mythologies, cultural tastes and kitsch, religions, morays, taboos and so forth- they are all foreign to modern sensibility. Every time anyone brings race into a conversation- even if it is about race- it is a red flag and an invitation to go do something constructive.

Wake me up when the race war starts.

Who the fuck are you that everybody must remake themselves in your image?

It's no good Asoka, the truth about Race is online on Youtube. The younger generation doesn't need a lot of silly ideology and Black Racists - it can see the truth about Black Hate for its own.

Let me correct myself:

FRED said: "Heaven help us. These inarticulate mutterings devoid of punctuation or any grasp of the structure of the language illustrate what we know but ignore: We are screwed. In 2012, in a technological society that sends space craft to Mars, we have millions of illiterates, or close enough that it doesn’t make any difference."

Unfortunately, Asoka's upbeat recitation of black's college attendance stats, for whatever reason, does not jive with the results we see and hear on the street.
