    Clog whenever ya see a cop beatin’ a guy,
    Wherever a hungry new born baby cries,
    Whereever there’s a fight against the blood and hatred in the air.

    Look for me Clog’

    I’ll be there

    Wherever somebodies stuglin’ for a place to stand, For a decent job or a helpin’ hand
    Wherever somebody is strugglin’ to be free

    Look in their eyes Clog,

    You’ll see me! You’ll see me!

    “there is an uncomfortable scientific truth that has to be faced: Economic growth is environmentally unsustainable.”
    “Increase in GDP leads to increase in material and energy use, and therefore to environmental unsustainability.”
    https://metamag.org/2018/02/21/opinion-economic-growth-is-not-compatible-with-environmental-sustainability/

    “Worldwide, we’re subsidising an illusory present by cannibalising an already-uncertain future. We’re doing this by creating debt that we can’t repay, and by making ourselves pension promises that we can’t honour. So acute is this problem that our chances of getting to 2030 without some kind of financial crash are becoming almost vanishingly small.”
    “if we continue with the myth of perpetual growth, we’re not only making things worse, but we may be throwing away our capability to adapt.”
    “We seem incapable of thinking or planning in any terms that aren’t predicated on perpetual growth. We resort to self-delusion instead.”
    “We seem oblivious of the obvious, which is that money, having no intrinsic worth, commands value only as a claim on the output of a real economy driven by energy.”

    “Economics is practiced in the United States as a social science. When I first looked into economics I was astonished that it’s not consistent with the law of conservation of energy nor the second law of thermodynamics nor the laws of conservation of mass. All of those things do not enter into the basic economic models. In fact, the basic economic models, as far as I’m concerned, just make no sense if you have a background in the natural sciences(…)”

    “We’re rapidly depleting resources, degrading ecosystems, altering the atmosphere, etc. What earth scientists are saying is generally not covered by the mainstream media, or is sugar coated, because the mainstream media is an outlet for the corporate perspective on the world.”

    Without growth the economy goes into a deflationary downward spiral and collapses. We have no choice unless we just want to collapse the system on our own. And if the system is going to collapse on its own anyways might as well keep the party going as long as possible.

    SLAVEMIND “Since you have no articles or arguments to prove your intelligence.”
    You would have to be incredibly stupid to believe that copying and pasting some old links that everyone here read years ago and writing a couple of incoherent, illiterate sentences proves you are intelligent. But that is normal; usually, the less intelligent a person is the more intelligent they think they are. And, the more ignorant a person is the better educated they think they are. Nanomind is a perfect example of this! LOL! He is simply to stupid to understand how stupid he is!

    ” Just do a google search for Solar power bankrupt!”

    Just did the Google search. There aren’t many solar panel manufacturers left in the western world that aren’t bankrupt. Most of the recent price declines result from Chinese state owned companies dumping these things on western markets beneath cost, as China itself pushes the biggest nuclear expansion in history. The writing is on the wall.

    What a disgusting propaganda piece of the worst kind.

    The “price” of commodities does not represent anything but market prices – this does not represent the environmental destruction or the depletion levels accurately, because the efficiencies of resource extraction have vastly improved, while leaving behind a virtual wasteland. Go examine the ocean floor or a palm oil plantation or open pit mine for your evidence.

    Championing the GDP or even the income does no good either – because both metrics fail to account for actual resource depletion and destruction. Celebrating these is akin to “winner take all” attitude despite there being no reward at the end of this race to the bottom.

    Communities all over the world are experiencing natural resource destruction and impoverishment and mega-corporations destroy what little still remains. Sure, their profits and production and income has increased – but at what terrible costs to everyone else, including the future children of this planet?

    “Time is humanity’s most precious resource”. “comparing prices and income is what really counts” – What the fuck? Pure unadulterated bullshit. A habitable PLANET is humanity’s “most precious resource”. How much time we have here is DIRECTLY related to how we treat this place.

    I’d like to strangle the f’n idiot that wrote this propaganda piece. Pure written crap.

    And the unadulterated garbage mentions about gold and silver are more carrots designed to reel in the gullible into buying something they will never, ever need while hoping they’re get rich from the ‘investment’.

    Someone tell me – why does Peakoil.com even publish such complete garbage? Propaganda like this needs to be circular filed where it belongs.

    Harquebus – good to see your still at it. It does feel like we’re beating at the wind, but only because we aren’t allowed into the offices of these planet raping bastards where we can choke the life out of them on their plush carpeted floors.

    SA, I believe that the proprietors of this site post such drivel to get the natives restless. Tell me it didn’t work on you.

  20. Anonymouse1 on Thu, 22nd Mar 2018 9:57 pm 

    Look at the source, the CaTO institute. There is no reason anyone should be suprised by either its tone, or content.

  21. JuanP on Thu, 22nd Mar 2018 9:59 pm 

    SLAVEMIND, I think your last working neuron just short circuited. Thanks for the laughs! I look forward to interacting with you again tomorrow! LOL!

    “What do you call a building full of Hispanics like Juanp?”

    What do you call a building full of financial swindlers?

    Right, a synagogue.

  23. Anonymouse1 on Thu, 22nd Mar 2018 10:36 pm 

    Well, if anyone would know all about synagogues full of swindlers, it would be you cloggraham.

    “The Hydrogen-Powered Car’s Big Setback”
    https://tinyurl.com/yaufpn2e

    “But the dirty little secret about clean cars is that a decade after Tesla Inc. left hydrogen technology in the dust by putting its first all-electric sedan on the road, automobile executives still think cars that emit only water are the way of the future.”

    “Of the almost 1,000 officials polled by the Dutch advisory, some 78 percent said hydrogen cars will prevail because their tanks can be filled in minutes, making recharging times of 25-45 minutes for battery options “seem unreasonable.” Elon Musk famously dismissed fuel cells as “mind-bogglingly stupid” You wouldn’t guess it by looking on the roads or in auto showrooms today. Just compare BMW’s one fuel-cell car to its plans for 10 battery-powered models by 2022 and you can get a sense of how far behind hydrogen has fallen.”

    “If you want to have a million electric vehicles on the road, fuel cells are going to have to be a part of it,” said Andreas Broecker, head of innovation at Linde. “The public still doesn’t really know that fuel-cell technology is part of electromobility. That should be made clearer.”

    @ MM, “Paul Ehrilich has been screaming Apocalypse for forty years. The Population bomb even has like form letters in it to send to your congressman (as I recall).”

    Call me obtuse, but what’s your point? You have been screaming apocalypse by oil since joining this forum. The difference is Ehrlich’s collapse analysis incorporates a wide spectrum of environmental doomsday bombs in the making.

    I have said the same thing over and over again. I think the collapse will happen within the next decade based on the limits to growth study. Nice straw man though!
