Rockman makes the same assumptions about future oil/NG prices almost all other companies make: they'll stay at current levels
The colossal German Energiewende disaster obviously was timed on the basis of a much higher oil prediction that was absolutely fundamentally correct. So was all the oil companies planning. They can't all be wrong.
The Oil Fiat King Currency decided to destroy all the worlds fiat currencies instead of allowing Peak Oil to manifest itself through higher oil prices. Any discussion of anything ERoEI related will be banned because it would reveal all the fiat currencies to be totally worthless.
The monetary system is now completely random and bogus. In Rockmans Bizarro World, this makes perfect sense. No matter what happens, everything makes perfect sense. Lets all go down to the asylum for wisdom. Hey, the oil companies are hiring people with severe dementia because it makes perfect sense.
REALITY: collapsing ERoEI is destroying the world and therefore the oil industry wants nothing to do with discussing ERoEI.
EV's are fuel-less automobiles and Thorium Reactors are fuel-less reactors. Perfect.
