    “…when the world’s supply of oil reaches its peak again,…’ a wide comment meaning nothing. We peaked out oily energy years ago. Now we are consuming anything we can pump that will burn. Not to mention growing food corn and using it for fuel. Desperation.

    For profit capitalism is killing us. A world war will finish off BAU. Are YOU prepared? Cloggie and Outcast aren’t. They are on techie drugs. What’s your excuse?

    “…scientists and engineers who are pioneering the alternative fuels that can keep us running if (or when) the new energy crisis arrives.”

    1) Sounds like a neat package of alternative infrastructure for producing and delivering a substitute fuel to market at a price that will continue to grow the economy, i.e. be a price the seller can make a decent profit but also a price in which the buyer will benefit from to generate his own financial advantage.

    Or 2), just a crock to make believe the idea of peak oil should not concern us.

    I’ll take what’s behind curtain #2.

    The title should read: “after conventional oil”.

    I’m confident that fossil fuel (oil, gas, oal, convential, unconventional, methane-ice, UCG) will peak before 2030 and then gradually be phased out by renewables.

    Energy is not the problem as we are living in a universe of burning stars and at the location of earth, 1400 Watt flows through every m2, tilted towards the sun.

    The problem (probably) is climate.

    Russian Econ Minister Warns, Prepare For Economic Downturn By 2021
    With the Russian stock market fading from all-time highs, the Russian economic minister has warned about a severe economic downturn that could start by 2021 amid current declines in personal lending, reported The Moscow Times. Consumer debt loads have exploded due to plunging real disposable incomes, an issue that President Vladimir Putin said could produce economic bubbles. The Russian economy is expected to cycle down through 2H19, partly due to a plunge in retail spending. Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin told the Ekho Moskvy radio station Sunday that GDP is expected to drop by 3% in the next year and a half. Demand for consumer loans is also expected to decline, ushering in a default cycle that will de-lever heavily indebted consumers that can’t get new financing. According to Oreshkin, many Russians are trapped in insurmountable debts. In the next crisis, he said, massive defaults on these loans will shock the economy. Oreshkin noted that it would be difficult to get out of the next recession painlessly. The economic minister said the government is developing mechanisms to cushion citizens if the economy crashes. Natalia Orlova, a chief economist at Moscow-based Alfa Bank, told the Vedomosti business daily, that Oreshkin’s comments were a sign by consumers to take out new loans. Moscow-based United Credit Bureau (OKB) reported that personal loans jumped by 46% compared to 2017, totaling $130 billion. The Russia economy stalled in the last 4.5 years. From 2014 to 2018, GDP grew by an annual rate of 1.50%. During the same period, real disposable incomes fell by 10.7%, leaving 13% of all citizens living in poverty. In 2018, 600,000 Russian companies closed their doors. Western countries could’ve sparked Russia’s demise through economic sanctions after Putin annexed Crimea in 2014. The sanctions contributed to capital flight, in excess of $317 billion from 2014 to 2018. Foreign direct investments also plunged. In the first three quarters of 2018, the volume of foreign direct investment was 11 times lower than during the same period in 2017. The Russian ruble has fallen 45.5% against the US dollar since 2014, a trend that should have strengthened Russia’s export market, but it didn’t. Residential construction, wholesale and retail trade, banking and insurance, personal services, lodging and restaurants, mobile telecoms, and web-based services are likely to come under pressure as an economic crisis in Russia is expected by 2021.

    Republicans and conservatives believe “racist” is a term the left employs to stigmatize, smear and silence adversaries. As one wag put it, a racist is a conservative who is winning an argument with a liberal.

    What FuckFace does not realize is JuanP is a collection of readers and posters who have been conditioned by FuckFace to hate his guts due to his ugly, abusive, and bullying behavior.

    That long word salad, supposedly by JuanP, has “DAVY” stamped all over it. The site Russophobe is still trying to make everyone else look worse than the Corrupt States of Amerika.

    I do agree that 2021 could be the year of the collapse, IF we get that far. But the worse effects and most pain will be in the Western oriented countries of debt: Amerika, the EU, Japan, and maybe, Australia. The pain will be less in the rest of the world.

    The US National Debt as of today: $22,529,611,000,000.00 The last numbers represented by zeros were spinning too fast to copy.

    Read it and weep, Amerikans! LMAO

    Well, 95% if not more of ‘JuanP’ posts these days originate with the expcetionaltard. Or he tries to shift the blame to one of his sock-puppets, hows that for irony?

    He is a poster-creature for what mental illness does to amerikans. Good thing he does not appear to have access to firearms, or he would have dropped off the site years ago. Death by cop, or pistol packing random amerikan stranger Davyturd looked at the wrong way.

    The world is post peak oil more than decade ago. now that what is highly expensive, hard to get, black glue, more mining than extraction causing bau, global economy collapse. As the engine of world economy, oil gets more expensive, depletes, consumed, fades into memory, oil age nears end. Saudi hardly able to maintain it’s output with millions water pressure, no giant oil fields left to discover, the ones already past their life cycle. Prepare……

    “After Oil” comes the graveyards, before oil was the Good Earth.
