Everyone Wants to Sell the Last Barrel of Oil thumbnail

A final victory last week over the Keystone XL pipeline is a reminder that fighting particular fossil-fuel projects is a necessary strategy if the climate is to be saved. The defeat of Keystone XL doesn’t mean that Canada’s vast tar-sands project, which is generally regarded as the largest industrial project in the world, is over, […]

An Inconvenient Truth: EVs May Offer A “Negligible” CO2 Difference From ICE Vehicles

An Inconvenient Truth: EVs May Offer A “Negligible” CO2 Difference From ICE Vehicles thumbnail

Are the carbon footprints of EVs really as drastically lower than that of internal combustion engine vehicles? When considering the amount of carbon and CO2 created from assembling lithium ion batteries, one firm thinks the difference could be “negligible”. Such was the topic of a new blog post by natural resource investors Goehring & Rozencwajg (G&R), a “fundamental […]

Humans Are Quietly Going Extinct

Humans Are Quietly Going Extinct thumbnail

It’s not the hostage situation of climate change, racial equality, or police reform. It isn’t merely a new coronavirus or nuclear war. This overlooked research makes all of those issues meaningless. The end of human procreation is right around the bend with a target date of 2045 if human fertility continues its race to the […]


The 5 mass extinction events that shaped the history of Earth — and the 6th that’s happening now

The 5 mass extinction events that shaped the history of Earth — and the 6th that’s happening now thumbnail

For the last 10,000 years, Earth has been in the midst of yet another extinction event that is rapidly removing animals from our planet. Scientists define a mass extinction as around three-quarters of all species dying out over a short geological time, which is anything less than 2.8 million years, according to The Conversation. Right […]

What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters thumbnail

On January 8, 2014, at New York University in Brooklyn, there occurred a unique event in the annals of global warming: nearly eight hours of structured debate between three climate scientists supporting the consensus on manmade global warming and three climate scientists who dispute it, moderated by a team of six leading physicists from the […]


We must stop flushing our trees down the toilet

We must stop flushing our trees down the toilet thumbnail

Our destructive habit of wiping instead of washing our derrieres is having a devastating impact on what remains of our precious biodiversity-rich old-growth boreal forests and tropical rainforests. It’s estimated that only 30 per cent of the world’s population uses bathroom tissue to clean their bottoms. The rest of the world uses water or soft […]


China is out-polluting the world

Enviroment

They say climate change is a global issue, something that the entire world is responsible for. But for more that two centuries, western countries went on a pollution spree. The west was a powerhouse of emmissions with its trains, factories, oil refineries and much more. Most of the pollution we see today is from that […]


Peak Water: Are we Running out of a Critical Resource?

Peak Water: Are we Running out of a Critical Resource? thumbnail

  “Peak Water” is an idea that has been going in parallel with that of “Peak Oil.” Both assume that the production of limited resources, fossil fuels and fossil water, will follow a “bell shaped” curve. The production peak of liquid fuels may have been passed during the past few years. About “peak water” the […]


The Great Reset: Davos Playbook

Enviroment

The World Economic Forum (WEF), a non-profit based in Geneva, states its mission as being “committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic, and other leaders of society to shape global, regional, and industry agendas.” Over the years, the annual WEF meeting held at Davos-Klosters, a Swiss mountain resort, has […]

Japan Decides To Dump One Million Tons Of Radioactive Fukushima Water Into The Pacific; IAEA Approves

Enviroment

We live in a bizarre world: one where the the Keystone XL pipeline must be shut in case of a hypothetical (and extremely unlikely) leak, but where Japan is allowed to dump over one million tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. Actually, it’s either bizarre or simply exposing just how profoundly hypocritical, self-serving […]

The Amazon is Likely Emitting More Greenhouse Gases Than It Absorbs, New Study Says

Enviroment

Scientists have predicted for years that at some point the Amazon rainforest, known as “the lungs of the planet,” would be overcome in its ability to scrub carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and could even emit more greenhouse gases than it absorbs. Now, a new study says, it’s probably already happened. The research, published Thursday […]

The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. thumbnail

Peter Kalmus, out of his mind, stumbled back toward the car. It was all happening. All the stuff he’d been trying to get others to see, and failing to get others to see — it was all here. The day before, when his family started their Labor Day backpacking trip along the oak-lined dry creek […]


Global population hit by extreme drought set to double

Enviroment

PARIS: Available freshwater is on track to decline sharply across two-thirds of Earth’s land surface toward the end of the century mostly due to climate change, with the number of people exposed to extreme drought doubling, researchers have reported. Even under a scenario of moderate decline in greenhouse gas emissions, land area scorched by extreme […]


Carmageddon: Hidden War Between Motor Cars and People

Enviroment

There is a silent, ongoing, global war between motor cars and people. It is silence because, though it kills many times more people than armed conflicts and terrorist acts combined. It seldom hits the headlines in the way they do. It is ongoing because it rages and will continue to rage around us day and […]


At current rates of deforestation, civilization will collapse in 20-40 years

Enviroment

Preface.  At current rates of deforestation, forests will be gone in 100-200 years. Long before that, in 20-40 years, the effects will be felt, with a 90% chance of civilization collapse likely. Since it looks like world conventional oil peaked in 2018, I’m putting my money on energy decline as the civilization crasher, but the […]


Why The World Can’t Quit Fossil Fuels

Enviroment

Have the recent pronouncements of the death of oil and reigning renewables been more rhetoric than reality? Yes and no. It’s true that peak oil is now closer than ever, and globally we’re seeing a more earnest effort to decarbonize than ever before, in large part thanks to green stimulus packages for post-COVID economic recovery. […]


The End of the World as We Know It?

The End of the World as We Know It? thumbnail

How is the world going to end? Polls consistently show that most believe the cause will be environmental. “Climate anxiety” has reached such a fevered pitch among young people across the globe that the Lancet recently issued a special “call to action” to help with the problem. Clinicians have even created “climate anxiety scales” to measure […]

Humans Left Sustainability Behind as Hunter-Gatherers

Enviroment

Many people believe that humans can have a sustainable future by using solar panels and wind turbines. Unfortunately, the only truly sustainable course, in terms of moving in cycles with nature, is interacting with the environment in a manner similar to the approach used by chimpanzees and baboons. Even this approach will eventually lead to […]

#kickstarter #peakoilprofiteer #peakoil #2TomatoesGames https://t.co/9UmEO69Mm8

@luquion 1: Human Caused Climate Change is REAL! 2: I think Greta's quote is taken out of context. She's QUOTING this particular leader, who is denying climate change. 3: Anthropogenic Climate Change it's going to look like a sunny day in Disneyland compared to #PeakOil!

@claudia_stauber Whether or not you believe in Human Caused Climate Change, or #PeakOil, .... you certainly are doing the correct thing with your homesteading skills! 🙏❤️🙇

@claudia_stauber @YouTube NetZero carbon is absolutely necessary to save the habitability of the planet. Anthropogenic Climate Change is absolutely real! But we don't have to work for NetZero. Again #PeakOil gives us the answer. When all the oil is gone (basically, now), we get to NetZero effortlessly.
