Chris Nelder interviews Colin Campbell: A Return to Regionalism

Is “peak oil” still something to be concerned about, and if so, what does depletion of conventional oil supply suggest about our future? Our guest in this episode certainly thinks peak oil will be a key factor in the decades ahead, and he foresees a future in which humanity must downsize significantly, both in total population and in the energy intensity of our lifestyles. He believes we’ll have no choice but to return to a more regionally focused way of life, depending on local resources, and doing a lot less travel and shipping. As one of the co-founders of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil, Colin Campbell’s view on the importance of oil to the global economy, and his vision of geological limits leading to declining oil production, has never wavered. And as a petroleum geologist with four decades of experience in finding and producing oil, including performing some of the first experiments with fracking, his knowledge of oil geology is unparalleled. His cautionary perspective serves to highlight the urgency of energy transition, because there are more reasons we need it to succeed in addition to eliminating carbon emissions, otherwise, oil scarcity may yet become a key factor in determining what our futures hold.

Guest:Dr. Colin Campbell is a retired petroleum geologist whose four-decade career began as a field geologist in 1957. Colin explored for oil and ultimately became an oil company executive. He was a co-founder of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO), and is the author of six books on oil depletion.

    Listened to the podcast. Campbell expects a “peak oil” induced depression.

    Claims that the 2008 financial collapse was determined by “peak oil” (it wasn’t, subprime loans had been given to parties for pc, affirmative action reasons).

    Not a peep about the potential of renewable energy.
    No apologies for being so majestically wrong about the date of peak oil.
    No reference to giant coal reserves under the North Sea (UCG).

    There is no energy supply problem. There is too much fossil fuel rather than too little. The real limiting factor is the environment, not energy supply.

    Campbell made the remark that WW1 came about because “Germany wanted to compete with the British Empire”. How true.

    One of the advantages of Brexit is that continental Europe can begin to distance itself from excessive Anglo-friendly interpretations regarding WW1 and WW2.

    BoJo prepared to break the law:

    “Delay be damned: Boris Johnson says he will refuse to postpone Brexit even if he’s LEGALLY required – forcing him to resign or MPs to kick him out – as Jeremy Corbyn prepares to block election on Monday”

    Get him arrested then.

    The EU should enforce a decision: binding referendum
    with only two choices: no-deal/May-deal. If you refuse, we pull the plug on you. Elections are no solutions. This farce has lasted too long already. We want to get rid of you and bring in the Russians.

    Get.Lost.

    This would be a good forum again if Davy, MOB and Cloggie got jobs and went away.

    Guys, quantities of bullshit is only good when spread on fields, not forum pages. No one reads your spew.

    And their sock puppets…

    “This would be a good forum again if Davy, MOB and Cloggie got jobs and went away.”

    makato, you are the most abusive one on this forum considering how long you have been here and the amount of daily hate and resentment you shower on all of us. Your best friends are cyber bullies who are obsessive stalkers that contribute nothing to the topic and you have the bold face to point fingers at others. juanPaultard is a raving lunatic and you support and enable his bad behavior. No wonder you are in a shit hole 3rd world country. I imagine nobody you knew in the US could stand being around you.

    Western globalist media: lying about Africa.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/robert-mugabe-death-obituary-zimbabwe-president-independence-zanu-pf-a9093991.html

    “Robert Mugabe: Zimbabwean independence leader who lost touch with his people”

    Oh that’s it, Mugabe “lost touch”.

    The truth is, under Ian Smith, Rhodesia was a good country to live in, for both whites and blacks. Then came western libtard egalitarians, like The Independent, or our empire dave, telling that “whites were suppressing blacks”, shouting “racism” at every opportunity, rather than focussing on what whites (or Europeans rather), really did: bringing order, competence and productivity.

    Then came Mugabe, the typical black entropy producer, f* up everything.

    European decolonization was like putting toddlers in a factory while saying: “now run it yourself, anything else would be oppressive”. And American anti-Europeans were at the forefront of this development.

    Yesterday I read in this book:

    https://www.amazon.de/Amerikas-Griff-nach-Weltmacht-Roosevelt/dp/3806112657/ref=sr_1_2

    “Amerikas Griff nach der Weltmacht: Roosevelt, Hitler und der Weg in den Zweiten Weltkrieg”

    (Americas grab for world power)

    On p562 we read: “America’s minister of the interior Harold Ickes, like Roosevelt a hardcore liberal-democratic internationalist, wrote with an undertone of satisfaction: ‘the dismemberment of the British and French empires is in plain sight’”

    Ickes wrote these words by the end of August 1939, when it was clear that America would succeed in its 1933-born objective, namely setting up Europe for war, so America could take its place.

    Now in 2019, 80 years later, the US empire, built on the intentional ruin of the European world, is facing ruin itself, as a consequence of its racial-egalitarian values.

    For continental Europeans that is *** extremely good news ***, the Anglo-Zionist globalist pestillence is almost over and the repair of the European world can begin, after empire and after Brexit.

    I am BIG GOAT;

    I am SUPER-TARD;

    I am EXCEPTIONAL-TURD;

    I love SOCKS and COCKS;

    I am DAVY-TURD;

    HEAR ME ROAR.

    Just keepin’ things real, DUMBASSES.

  16. Davy on Sat, 7th Sep 2019 6:17 am 

    “or our empire dave, telling that “whites were suppressing blacks”, shouting “racism” at every opportunity, rather than focussing on what whites (or Europeans rather), really did: bringing order, competence and productivity.”
    Bullshit cloggo, I am saying blacks are human and not subhuman like you make them out to be.

    Your beloved Europe has caused most all the problems in Africa because you gutted and looted the place for centuries.

  17. Cloggie on Sat, 7th Sep 2019 2:46 pm 

    “Your beloved Europe has caused most all the problems in Africa because you gutted and looted the place for centuries.”

    There was nothing to loot from stone age cannibals.

    Europe lifted the level of the place until these Americans and Soviets showed up. Now Africans are desperate to follow their former masters. They can’t survive without us.

    And let’s face it: Americans like you are unable to sustain first world civilization, you pissed it all away because you have bitten into the kosher-baked “racism” poison cookie.

    Never mind, we are going to take over. America was a mistake.

  18. Davy on Sat, 7th Sep 2019 3:42 pm 

    “Never mind, we are going to take over. America was a mistake.”

    If you show up here in the Ozark’s expect a fight. I am not too worried, Eurotardland bred fighting out of their soldiers. They are now wine drinking cheese eating weenies.
