Population Growth and Global Food Supplies

Population Growth and Global Food Supplies thumbnail

Article in the UK Independent, suggesting that corona could help accelerate the end of the oil age. For starters, corona crashed the airline industry, a large oil consumer. Additionally the global lock-down caused many to work from a home office, exit commuting. And then there is climate crisis. And the WTO, predicting that world trade could lose up to 32% volume over 2020, which is bad for shipping, another huge oil gobbler. The oil industry lost no less than 30 mbd demand, down from 100 mbd average in 2019, which is huge.

It will take months for the economy to somewhat recover, much longer for economic BAU to be restored, IF that happens in the first place, a big if. Even Globalist Center Goldman-Sachs doubts that will happen, let alone if it is wise to even aspire for the full restoration of BAU. Instead it predicts that renewable energy will step up to fill the vacuum left by abandoned oil wells, that are not that easy to recover. Major banks and funds have reduced their investment into the oil industry and wind becomes a more interesting investment, backed as it is by the Paris Accords, meaning the vast majority of the world community.

The cost and yield of renewable energy, unlike fossil fuel, is almost independent of economic circumstances and is very predictable, not on an hourly basis, but on a yearly basis very much so, providing pension funds with stable revenues.

[independent.co.uk] – Could coronavirus be the beginning of the end for the oil industry?

    The Post Corona World is going to be a lot different and not in a good way. If you don’t have a NECESSARY skill, you will be sidelined and on the dole for the rest of your life, at best.

    Use this time to learn new skills and hone old ones. Plant something edible, if only in a flower pot on the window sill. Plan for the new future…now.

    If you are over 40 in the United States, it is basically over for you, UNLESS you were one of the ones already living the hard life that is to come.

    The rest of the self-satisfied, all-important, American exceptionalist, ‘MURICA-minded morons are doomed.

    The world just can’t handle the American idiots anymore, everyone sees the results.

    Either adapt (live small), or die. I have ZERO sympathy for what is coming to the American trash in the United States.

    That goes double for that American garbage that is always promoting police violence and military invasions.

    I am not one to gloat, but it took long enough.

    Well stated noobtube! I agree with all of your post. As I am retired (75) and live in a less wealthy country (Philippines) and have downsized to a semi-comfortable level, I can watch the US implode with little regret. Long overdue, I think.

    JuanP. I AM old. LOL. I do not try to track the various “who’s who” on here. I respond to the comments I want to, not the name. However, Davy is still Davy under and pseudo. The village idiot.

  8. JuanP on Thu, 9th Apr 2020 6:24 pm 

    Mak, you can be old but aware. Try to remember who is who and you will look smarter.

  9. makati1 on Thu, 9th Apr 2020 6:45 pm 

    JuanP, I don’t bother to follow idiots. I have better things to do than try to impress imbeciles on here. I am smarter than most here, obviously. Especially smarter than the dumbass Missouri Jackass, hands down! LOL

    modern civilization cannot run on a energy source that’s intermittent like wind and solar without some type of storage for the “lean” times. Currently this is covered by Nat gas.

    the “greens” are a Marxist founded group ( look it up ) and have many human hating members, who are quite happy for you to die for their cause, which will result in poverty, starvation , war and death.

    will oil and coal last forever ? don’t be silly .

    As far as dogs are concerned, along with the progress of human civilization and the public concern and love for animal protection, dogs have been ‘specialized’ to become companion animals, and internationally are not considered to be livestock, and they will not be regulated as livestock in China,

    The reason people can’t get test. Is because the virus tour hasn’t come to their town yet. They test from town to town. And this gives the illusion that something is growing “exponentially”.

    Don’t believe me? Next stop is the midwest of America! See you there!

    Wow. What a bunch of freaks in here. I must have wandered into Chalmun’s Spaceport Cantina in the city of Mos Eisley on planet Tatooine.
