Energy market disruption is underway

Alternative Energy

An unprecedented wave of disruptions is facing energy and mining commodity markets. We have already seen environmental policy, socioeconomic changes and technological innovation kick off a major transition to low- or zero-carbon technologies.

With the Paris Agreement targets set, governments are reinforcing their focus on meeting their greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals. This comes at a time when structural changes have lead to slower demand growth for hydrocarbons and several base metals compared with recent growth in supply. Many questions surround expectations for recovery from the resultant supply glut.

Renewable technology costs are falling, and as battery storage capabilities and economics improve, renewable energy will become more reliable and competitive — potentially further displacing demand for oil, coal and natural gas in the power sector. This raises major questions about the imminence of peak oil demand, the role of gas as a bridging fuel, and prospects for coal demand growth beyond the 2013 peak. But the pace, nature and implications of the transition are not easy to predict.

We have identified four major themes to consider as we look at commodity markets that are experiencing major transformations:

-The strong growth in hydrocarbon and base metal supply is not being matched on the demand side due to major transitions and structural changes
-As major commodity producers and consumers navigate the resultant supply glut, their strategic considerations will have wider implications on industry players
-Transitions to alternative technology in power and transport raise questions about the imminence of peak oil demand as well as demand growth for other fossil fuels
-Adapting to transitions in energy, the investment landscape presents new challenges and opportunities, requiring innovative strategies to access new markets or strengthen positions in traditional markets.

In our latest report, we discuss the key questions shaping commodity markets, to be addressed through our research over the remainder of 2017 and into 2018, and explore these four themes in greater depth.

    “Spanking the Monkey or The US has become a Reality-Optional Society”

    “The metamorphosis of the news business from a dignified and necessary component of the public interest to a gong and geek show is now complete. Some of you may remember that it used to be the task of news organizations to actually gather the news from far and wide. When Walter Cronkite came over the airways on CBS news, he “anchored” the revolving team of reporters in the field: we go to Marvin Kalb in Moscow… Fred Graham in Atlanta… Peter Kalischer in Paris… Lesley Stahl in New York…. Do you know what those people were doing? They were reporting the news on site, because it was important to actually be in the places where events were happening and talking to the people involved in them.” (I remember.)

    Perhaps the most important story of the decade is the developing meltdown of governance and authority in Saudi Arabia and a Defcon Red level of potential for major war breaking out between them and Iran. How many reporters do the cable networks have in Riyadh today? What’s on CNN’s home page this morning? Boy dies after eating grilled cheese; Why men use masturbation to harass women; and the lead under their “Top Stories” banner: ‘Magnum, P.I.’ actor John Hillerman dies. Maybe you can find a clue in here why the USA has become a reality-optional society. Maybe it’s the American news media that actually has its dick in its hand.”

    Reality is too difficult for American Snowflakes of all ages to handle so they ignore/deny it even when someone tries to point it out to them. Being spoiled all their lives, they cannot fathom that the party is over and now the bill is coming due. One they are too in debt to pay. Their insane president is taking them to a war they will surely regret and all they can do is point to some fat little guy in a 3rd world country as the most dangerous person on earth. Never their own murdering, plundering country. The 4×4 of reality is gonna real hurt when it knocks them to their knees soon. So be it.

    “People Are Crazy and Times Are Strange”

    “Just recently, The American Psychological Association conducted a survey and found that 2/3 of Americans feel stress about the future of our country.”

    America has gone from “Mary Poppins” to “Alice in Wonderland” and is soon going to visit “Dante’s Inferno” or, maybe, “On the Beach”? We shall see.

    “as battery storage capabilities and economics improve, renewable energy will become more reliable and competitive — potentially further displacing demand for oil, coal and natural gas in the power sector.”
    The total FF use by humans year over year has only been rising on good old planet earth.
    I dare anyone to show different or otherwise.
    The more green energy from wind and solar w/battery backup installed, the more FF is burned.

    Americans, this is YOU…

    “In real terms GDP has not gone up at all; it has in fact gone down. The claim of “no inflation” is also a lie committed by refusing to count things that go up in price — houses, stocks, health care costs, etc. …

    I’ve written on the horsecrap in this report dozens of times and in fact it’s covered well in Leverage at a depth I don’t really care to repeat here; after all, nobody seems to care in the ‘real world’ we live in. ..

    What stops you from thinking about this stuff? You. You get on “social media” and allow it to prod you into becoming a drone. That you’re being strangled almost-literally from an economic and personal perspective doesn’t matter….

    You, as a “commoner”, get ****ed — repeatedly — and yet all you do is mewl forth “please sir, just the tip this time.”…

    There is no real difference between what these people are doing and opiate addiction. Zuckerpig, Hastings, Bezos and more are the pushers and pimps, profiting mightily from destroying you! …

    The problem with ignoring math is that it always wins in the end; you can stick your head in the sand and go into debt up to your eyeballs but you can’t escape arithmetic and the laws of exponents, and the more selfies you post instead of roasting these jackasses the worse the blowup will be.

    Enjoy the decline.”

    Well said. Enjoy the decline Americans. You are on the slide…

    Americans are mice trapped in a lab cage and fed bullshit…

    “…These measures are to keep the subjects (taxpaying American citizen-slaves) in.

    Why else would they be requiring the use of a passport starting next year on domestic flights? This is the internal passport system of the former Soviet Union, materializing before our eyes. They will not need the “Mark of the Beast” implanted or bar-coded…they have the cellular telephones.

    The taxpayer slave-serfs carry these around…willingly, of their own free will…to transmit their every activity and location every four seconds…events that are all recorded for future use in whatever capacity the rulers see fit. …

    The increasing surveillance is tightening of the noose around the necks of the American citizens. The surveillance state is growing more powerful and thanks to legislation, is becoming more invulnerable to challenges to its supremacy. Soon its inexorable march will be irreversible. Totalitarian control will be in place, and most of the citizens are either unaware of such, or they do not care that it is so.”

    I’m glad I live where there is no money for such surveillance.

    Madkat spreading more FAKE NEWS…SHTFPLAN and BURNING PLATFORM are not credible sources of information…The collapse wont come until the oil shortage ahead around 2020. then we have one year until economic collapse at worst or ten years at best…Why are you so freaking bitter is insane? And you claim we Americans believe propaganda LOL Get real you lunatic. your president is a cold blooded murder…

  8. makati1 on Fri, 10th Nov 2017 10:28 pm 

    MM, I guess the bullshit coming out of your circle-jerk ‘peer review’ committees is truth? The alt-sites are more real than anything you will read in the USMSM. I don’t need a bunch of ‘never-worked-a-day-in-their-life’ people to tell me how to think. I guess you do. LMAO

  9. MASTERMIND on Fri, 10th Nov 2017 10:32 pm 

    Madkat- I know more about collapse and peak oil then anyone you will ever talk to..Just look at the link on my usernames. Have you ever seen such a list of scholarly sources? I am sorry if you dont trust science and its peer reviewed process. But its the best we have for now..And the reason you are duped by alt sights is because you are uneducated so you never learned what real news think your ignorance is as good as my peer reviewed scholarly knowledge. I dont know if you are deluded or just naive..take your pick…

  10. makati1 on Fri, 10th Nov 2017 10:32 pm 

    BTW: The “collapse” is already in progress, or haven’t your peers told you that “fact” yet MM? Nothing like a few degreed idiots who think they know it all. They are proof that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. LMAO.

    Madkat I bet you never even graduated did you? I also worked on a farm as my first job and was a state chess champion in high school…I am not some pushover SJW snowflake..I am the real deal a true mastermind…And you are a old tired blowhard….WE ARE GOING TO CRUSH YOU! I promise we the USA will not go quietly into the night.. We will fight!

    Denial and brainwashing…

    “There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia.

    The first myth is the myth of the US military superiority.
    The second myth is the myth about the US invulnerability.

    I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they end up costing us millions of lives and untold suffering.”

    Waste of time Saker. The Brainwashed will call it a conspiracy theory or just deny it. Others won’t bother to read it as it is ‘not important’. Only the few who already know will just say: “YEP!”.

  14. makati1 on Fri, 10th Nov 2017 11:41 pm 

    MM, you have no idea who or what I am or did. You obviously have no memory of all the facts about myself IO have published here over the last few years. You are not worth the trouble to repeat them.

    Lets just say that I had a very good education in the US before the teacher’s union and over paid professors took American education into the gutter. I attended Dickinson College when all it cost was $1,250.00 per year tuition, plus books and fees and J.F.Kennedy was president.

  15. MASTERMIND on Fri, 10th Nov 2017 11:57 pm 

    Madkat what was your major at college? Liberal arts or communication? I doubt anything hard and colleges are way better now you dimwit just think about how much more information is available now…stop living in the past… I doubt you even went and if you did you most likely quit…and your sources would be laughed out of class now of days…I can tell you inhaled lead for over 30 really shows with your lower IQ.

  16. fmr-paultard on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 12:17 am 

    I was a tard and I was lucky to graduate college, barely. But I figured out UNO and cattle mutilation. It’s a product of folksy brain.

    I will figure out Aswang and destroy it. Right now he’s not condemning a professed murderer. He’s a harbinger of ZH fake news and condoning duterte murder. But it’s easy for him to blame the jews for all his ills. He stands for murder you become his Cambridge five and you become his accomplice.

    My jew friend is a pure Dostoevsky idiot. I fail to see how he’s responsible for anything

  17. Shortend on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 1:24 am 

    Funny article…to meet GW targets…give me a break, like that is a real concern to anyone that matters in public policy decision making!. You would think by this time folks would wake up and realize that its all a farce.

    MM, biology with a minor in chemistry. Why? Do you want to make another smart-ass assumption and call it fact?

    Psychology, calculus, and some history and English courses. I don’t remember which ones. Oh, and a year of German and a semester of Spanish. (I had two years of Latin in HS as I expected it would be handy in my bio studies, along with chemistry, physics and biology.) One and a half years of college and I decided it was a waste of money and time so I left.

    I went to work in the chem lab of a local manganese steel foundry and eventually moved into construction, from which I retired 45 years later. I have been enjoying my life ever since and hope to have a few more decades to watch the world change.

    Quitting college was the best thing I could have done. I thoroughly enjoyed my construction years, even though many times I had to educate decreed engineers on how to do their job. lol

  19. Davy on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 4:02 am 

    Your a friggin liar mad kat or what can we believe out of you. I watch all your post for lies so in the past you said you dropped out 1st semester. You may have been enrolled in the above classes but you never completed them. Besides you are a drop out of everything you do like marriage, college, Mormon Church.

    The CIA, your local pusher…

    “First published in 2005, updated in January 2015 and April 2017. The opioid crisis bears a relationship to the export of heroin out of Afghanistan. There were 189,000 heroin users in the US in 2001, before the US-NATO invasion of Afghanistan. By 2016 that number went up to 4,500,000 (2.5 million heroin addicts and 2 million casual users).”

    “Which Country has Highest Drug Use in the World” America is #2 after Iceland.

    “Drug map reveals the substances YOUR country is addicted to: Scotland is hooked on cocaine, Iceland smokes the most cannabis and opiates are rife in the US” (Them Afghan poppies…lol)

    And some claim that the Us is not already collapsing. LOL

  23. Davy on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 5:08 am 

    mad kat, do you care at all about others? Are you that selfish to constantly drag this board into the gutter? It is getting worse as all your gang desert you. I could understand American critical comments that are on topic but you pollute every discussion with your random anti-American posts.

  24. Davy on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 5:13 am 

    “And some claim that the Us is not already collapsing. LOL”

    We are doing OK mad kat. How would you know anyway you live in an isolated westernized part of Manila pretending your hand is on the heartbeat of Asia. You are out of touch with what is going on in the US. All you do is read extremist news constantly daybreak to sunset. You are losing it. Things are bad and getting worse but no different than everywhere. We have significant strengths in many diverse communities. I see it around here where I live. You are projecting your anger and loneliness onto something that is unrelated to your own personal condition.

  25. MASTERMIND on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 10:38 am 

    Davy: ” You are projecting your anger and loneliness onto something that is unrelated to your own personal condition.”

    Bingo! He keeps posting fake news constantly. His own president just admitted yesterday to stabbing an innocent man to death…Just think when the oil starts to run out and the mass hysteria rips worldwide. What his president will do to his own people? He is going to put his big government boot right up the crack of his ass..

  26. makati1 on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 11:17 am 

    MM, You like to post bullshit, with no refs. Can’t you find some with “peer review”? Your president has tried to start a few wars and he hasn’t even been prez foe a year. He is fast destroying what little credibility the US had left. I guess that isn’t important? It is just YOUR ass hat will be the target.

    BTW: You might check out the killing record of US presidents starting with Washington, Grant, Roosevelt, etc.

    Yes, I think Duterte is handling his “war on drugs” the correct way. He is getting results. How many died of drug over dose in the US recently?

    “Across the country, 44,000 people died from drug overdoses in 2013, more than double the number in 1999, the study by the non-profit group, Trust for America’s Health found. Nearly 52 percent of the deaths were related to prescription drugs.”

    “The United States is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic.

    Opioids (including prescription opioids, heroin, and fentanyl) killed more than 33,000 people in 2015, more than any year on record. Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription opioid.”

    2016 Provisional US Drug Overdose Data via Centers for Disease Control

    Total provisional count of drug overdose deaths in the US for the 12-month period ending in December 2016: 71,135.
    Attributed to synthetic opioids (excluding methadone): 19,547
    Attributed to heroin: 15,564
    Attributed to natural and semi-synthetic opioids: 14,550
    Attributed to cocaine: 10,479
    Attributed to psychostimulants with abuse potential: 7,602
    Attributed to methadone: 3,393

    When the Ps drug war reaches a death toll equal to this, THEN I might agree with you.

  27. MASTERMIND on Sat, 11th Nov 2017 11:41 am 

    Madkat I have more peer reviewed papers under my icon then you have ever read in your life..That is why you have to spread fake news because you are grasping at straws…And drug use is a victimless crime. Your leader is just using it as a form of oppression..

    The internet was supposed to be a blessing to society, and in many ways it is. But it has also turned out to be a curse in many ways. One of the major dark sides of the internet is that liars, morons, fanatics and grotesque individuals with all kinds of agendas are able to spew and broadcast their lies and bullshit unimpeded in public forums. On this forum, which should be a place where logical and well-intended people can come to learn about and rationally discuss the issues associated with oil/energy depletion, we end up instead with America-haters, holocaust deniers, self-professed “experts” and bullshit artists who dominate the public forum with their asinine assertions and ridiculous points of view. There is NO benefit to the mudslinging level of discussion which this forum is continuously dragged into by those few individuals who seem to have nothing better to do with their time than just hang out on this forum and spew non-stop bullshit. I personally despise the operator(s) of this forum for allowing what could be highly valuable and constructive place of discussion to devolve daily/hourly into a mudslinging, nitpicking, bickering mass of sewage. There are some very good and intelligent individuals who post on this forum, and if only the liars and fanatics and bullshit artists would just find some other place to spew their shit, this forum could actually be worth posting on. But it isn’t, not for me. This is the only thing worth posting on this forum: Makati1, fuck you and your idiocy and moronic pontifications. That’s what I think every day when I stop by this forum and come across your asinine shit. I thought I would take a moment to let you know how I feel. You’re a very sick dude.

    This whole pro American and anti American bifurcation should cease so that the quality of discourse here can improve. I am on record sternly criticizing the American Empire.
    However we are collectively facing worldwide predicaments so we should attempt to engage these issues with that mind and even hopefully showing some empathy in light of the difficult times we will ALL face and especially the children

    MM, you are again putting words in my mouth that I did NOT say. I never said I got a degree. And,I am STILL an inactive Mormon.

    You prove everyday that you have no PHD or any degree, You may still be trying to pass the 8th grade. A truly educated person does not need immature putdowns to rebut . They use facts and references to prove their point.

    Do you think all of the readers here don’t see your immaturity and denials? Are they as stupid as you, Davy and Boat? I think not.

    You just cannot face the truth that your supposed chemist education was a waste and will be useless in the future. Buy some goats. At least Davy is that far ahead in planning for the collapse.

    BTW: Any article that begins with: “Study” is even more likely to be spun in the way the paycheck dictates. NO ‘news’ is ever 100% accurate or even true. None. But if you piece together1900s of sources, you get a more clear picture of reality. That is what I do.

    And collapse is definitely in the future. The US will hurt the most as it is high on he ladder and has a long way to fall. Actually, it is already falling. It is the bottom splat that will be the most painful. Never to rise again. A 3rd world, or worse, country.

    MM, I really believe you are either a 12 year old or insane, or both. You rant and act like it. Are you really Davy in disguise? You like to put your problems in someone else’ life because they are smarter than you. Frustrated? Too bad!

    As I told Davy numerous times, You can try but you will never succeed to make me angry or upset. Tactical officers tried that in Officer Candidate School long ago and failed. They had the power to kick me out. YOU have zero chance of doing better. You are a nobody who means nothing to me. A speck of flyshit on the wall has more importance.

    Play your immature games if it soothes your troubled mind. I can just ignore you like I do Davy. Two mentally deranged, frustrated, scared people trapped in a disintegrating world. I know it is happening and am looking forward to the new experience I have prepared as much as possible to ease the pain. You obvious have not. My construction and biology experience will have a lot more worth than your chemist career after the crash. LOL

    Doctors do NOT impress me. They lose a lot of patients from incompetence. The most dangerous place to be, if you are sick, is in a hospital.

    They can be easily bought, as the tobacco age proved. They will lie on TV for money and prestige. The US prescription opiate problem comes form doctors who want bennies from drug companies. Or incompetence. Or both.

    How many times do I have to say that degrees do NOT impress me. I have too many self made, successful friends who never went to college. Some are even millionaires.

    MM, no they cannot. THAT’s the problem. No one even gets the chance if they are not per-approved by the elite. No one. There is no ‘election’ in the US. It is one big dog-and-pony show for the serfs. Money says who will run. That goes for the bought and paid for Congress also.

    There is only the sham of democracy left in the US. It is a budding police state with a future dictatorship in the wings. All it will take is one fake ’emergency;’ and it will step on stage in full regalia. Wait and see. I will never come back to the US after that happens. It will be safer and more free here than it even is now.

    “There is only the sham of democracy left in the US. ”

    Democracy worked for once in the US in 2016, because a guy who brought his own money, didn’t need the usual “elite” backing:

    They are fighting him now around the clock, but when they return they will find out that:

    – the western “alliance” (empire really) will be losened
    – the deplorables know the system is NOT invinceble
    – the US will be 4-8 years closer to third world impotence
    – the EU will have an army
    – China/Russia can’t be beaten anymore
    – independent internet media will have further eroded MSM power, THE cornerstone of the NWO power elite

    After Trump, the last president trying to represent European-American interest, largely in vain, the darkies will take over for ever. Prez Suckerboig will implement universal healthcare and universal basic income, to be paid for by white XXL suckers like davy, siss and boat. Expect a lot of former exceptionalist whiteys to grab for their guns. For non-Americans it is going to be a fascinating spectacle.

    Exit USA.

    As per usual the yank mob can’t handle the truth and attack the messengers in the form of Makati and Clog.

    Please stop your bat shit crazy generals and CIA zionists (largest oil consumer on Earth by the way ) running your country into the ground!!!

    And I’m sorry Davy but that is not ”ëxtremist”‘ or “‘denialist” or somethingidontagreewithist”‘.

    Going on about the Phillipines dealing with drug pushing scum is irrelevant.

    I apologise Simon. Back on subject, here in South Australia we are 50% renewables and Port Augusta is leading the way:

    The writing has been on the wall for a while here in South Australia as our smaller population 1.8 million has made it much easier for us to make the transition compared to NSW with their soon to be 10 million. In Sydney they are increasingly (like most major cities) packed into condos and apartments with no community solar plans in sight.
