Some Snapshots of the Global Energy Situation

Consumption

“Global primary energy grew by 2.9% in 2018 – the fastest growth seen since 2010. This occurred despite a backdrop of modest GDP growth and strengthening energy prices. At the same time, carbon emissions from energy use grew by 2.0%, again the fastest expansion for many years, with emissions increasing by around 0.6 gigatonnes. That’s roughly equivalent to the carbon emissions associated with increasing the number of passenger cars on the planet by a third.” Spencer Dale offers these and other insights in his introduction to the the 2019 BP Statistical Review of World Energy. It’s one of those books of charts and tables I try to check each year just to keep my personal perceptions of economic patterns connected to actual statistics.  Here are a few figures that jumped out at me.

One main drive of the rise in world energy use is economic growth in emerging market countries. The horizontal axis of this figure shows average energy use per person. The vertical axis shows the cumulative share of total world population. The yellow line shows the pattern for 1978, while the green line shows four decades later in 2018.
From the caption under the figure: “In 2018, 81% of the global population lived in countries where average energy demand per capita was less than 100 GJ/head, two percentage points more than 20 years ago. However, the share of the global population consuming less than 75 GJ/head declined from 76% in 1998 to 57% last year. Average energy demand per capita in China increased from 17 GJ/head in 1978 to 97 GJ/head in 2018.” The figure constructed from national-level data on average energy consumption. Thus, the big jump the blue line at right about 100 GJ/head is the population of China. Overall, the shift from the yellow to the blue line shows how energy consumption is rising in emerging market economies.
The sources of global energy consumption are also shifting. Oil consumption as shown by the green line is falling as a share of global energy consumption. (Just to be clear, total consumption of oil-produced energy rose in 2018, but it’s rising more slowly than overall energy consumption, so the share of the total declined.) Coal remains pretty much the same share of global energy consumption as it has been for the last 30 years. Natural gas has risen. Hydro power is about the same. Nuclear energy is about the same as the last 20 years. Renewables like wind and solar are up, but still only about 5% of total energy consumption.
High oil prices, reducing the quantity demanded, are part of the economic picture as to why the share of energy produced by oil has declined. The figure shows oil prices back to the Pennsylvania oil boom of the 1860s, with the light-green line showing prices adjusted for inflation. Oil prices have been volatile since the 1970s, but they seem at present to be rising to the middle of their range over the last 4-5 decades.
What about renewable energy and carbon emissions? From Spencer Dale’s overview:

Renewable energy appears to be coming of age, but to repeat a point I made last year, despite the increasing penetration of renewable power, the fuel mix in the global power system remains depressingly flat, with the shares of both non-fossil fuels (36%) and coal (38%) in 2018 unchanged from their levels 20 years ago. This persistence in the fuel mix highlights a point that the International Energy Agency (IEA) and others have stressed recently; namely that a shift towards greater electrification helps as a pathway to a lower carbon energy system only if it goes hand-in-hand with a decarbonization of the power sector. Electrification without decarbonizing power is of little use. … On the supply side, the growth in power generation was led by renewable energy, which grew by 14.5%, contributing around a third of the growth; followed by coal (3.0%) and natural gas (3.9%). China continued to lead the way in renewables growth, accounting for 45% of the global growth in renewable power generation, more than the entire OECD combined.

Here’s is a figure showing how electricity is generated around the world. Coal still leads the way, by far. Natural gas is on the rise, while oil is dropping. “Renewables,” which is led by wind, but also includes solar and smaller categories like geothermal and biomass, is on the rise, but still under 10%.

Finally, here’s a table showing carbon emissions in 2018. This is a trimmed-down version of a bigger table in the text. It mainly shows carbon emissions by region. (CIS is “Commonwealth of Independent States,” which refers to the remnants of what was once the Soviet Union.) Notice that the Asia-Pacific region accounts for half of all global carbon emissions, with China alone accounting for more than one-quarter of global carbon emissions. Also, the average annual growth rate of carbon emissions was negative for North America and for Europe from 2007-2017, but rising during that time frame in Asia Pacific, as well as Africa, the Middle East, and South/Central America. As I’ve written before, a meaningful approach to limiting or reducing global carbon emissions will need to include North American and Europe, but our participation won’t be nearly enough.

    “Carbon-neutral fuels move a step closer”
    https://tinyurl.com/yxtv844t physics dot org

    “Chemists at EPFL have developed an efficient process for converting carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide, a key ingredient of synthetic fuels and materials.”

    “Replacing gold with iron “The new process is just as efficient as previous technologies, but with one major benefit. “To date, most catalysts have used atoms of precious metals such as gold,” explains Professor Hu. “But we’ve used iron atoms instead. At extremely low currents, our process achieves conversion rates of around 90 percent, meaning it performs on a par with precious-metal catalysts. Our catalyst converts such a high percentage of CO2 into CO because we successfully stabilized iron atoms to achieve efficient CO2 activation,” adds Jun Gu, a Ph.D. student and lead author of the paper. To help them understand why their catalyst was so highly active, the researchers called on a team led by Professor Hao Ming Chen at National Taiwan University, who conducted a key measurement of the catalyst under operating conditions using synchrotron X-rays. Closing the carbon cycle Although the team’s work is still very much experimental, the research paves the way for new applications. At present, most of the carbon monoxide needed to make synthetic materials is obtained from petroleum. Recycling the carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuels would help preserve precious resources, as well as limit the amount of CO2—a major greenhouse gas—released into the atmosphere. The process could also be combined with storage batteries and hydrogen-production technologies to convert surplus renewable power into products that could fill the gap when demand outstrips supply.”

    ” Our catalyst converts such a high percentage of CO2 into CO because we successfully stabilized iron atoms to achieve efficient CO2 activation”

    They have probably super-cooled the iron to make this process happen. And guess what : Cooling down the iron takes just as much energy as the creation of CO2 from CO gives you. And that leaves you with plus/minus zero.

    From davy’s comment:
    “At extremely low currents, our process achieves conversion rates of around 90 percent,”

    Every thing points toward an experiment conducted at near zero Kelvin degrees.
    “Extremely low currents” also give us a hint about using “super conductivity”, which again shows that we are in the very low kelvin degrees.
    I don’t believe the EROIE is positive in this case

  5. claes on Fri, 14th Jun 2019 5:33 pm 

    Professor Xile Hu should be denied all access to western media, because of his neglicence of informing how his experiments were conducted.
    He pretended that the processes were made at normal enviromental temperatures, while they were actually made at very low, close to zero Kelvin temperatures.
    Do we have here another example of chinese scientifical fraud ?

    Renewables share in overall energy consumption has increased from 3.6% to 4.0%.
    Renewables share in power generation has increased from 8.4% to 9.3% while that of oil dipped from 3.4% to 3.0%

    Frankly; quite a long way to go for renewable to hit even 10%.

    Share or Oil decreased from 34.2% to 33.6%
    Share or Natgas increased from 23.3% to 23.9%
    Share or Coal decreased from 27.6% to 27.2%
    Actually coal increased if you look from production perspective, but a part of it that was used to produce gaseous and liquid fuels is excluded in consumption.
    Share of Nuclear & Hydro remains the same at 4.4% & 6.8% respectively.

    All these excludes the wood and other bio-mass that is used for cooking/heating in developing countries since they were not traded.

  7. Famlin on Fri, 14th Jun 2019 7:25 pm 

    Oil production increased 2.2% while the consumption increased 1.2%. This does not need to match since the consumption includes Coal & Natgas converted to motor fuels, Biofuels and also a part of it would have gone to inventory.

    Natgas enjoyed and increase of 5.2% and 5.3% in production and consumption respectively.

    Coal had 4.3% increase in production and 1.4% increase in consumption.
    Biofuels had 9.7% growth.

  8. Famlin on Fri, 14th Jun 2019 7:27 pm 

    This time, the crude condenstate / NGL split is included.
    Of the 15.311 million b/d of oil produced in USA; 10,962 (2/3) is C+C. The remaining 4.349 million b/d is NGL.
    Worldwide NGL production hit 11.557 million b/d for a 6.4% growth while Crude+Condensate growth hit only 1.9%. NGL components like Ethane, Propane, Butane are good as fuel and for making plastics, but not for gasoline unless some extra processing is done.

    EU for Boris!

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7143569/Britain-NOT-leave-EU-year-No-Deal-Brussels-warns.html

    EU has now fully accepted BoJo as next PM and that no-deal is going to happen and they are even mildly positive about him because the EU thinks that BoJo can deliver what May couldn’t: an exit, all sides want now.

    They are now opting for a “controlled no deal” to prevent the worst, like Britain running out of medicines etc.

    Excellent, anything to get them removed from the white world they hate so much.

    1940 — Poland: A German Nazi extermination camp opens at Auschwitz — 3,000,000 die here.

    Really? Not even your (((owners))) claim that ridiculous number any more, they opt for 1 million, still a lie. They only believable number was produced by the International Red Cross, evaluating German data:

    https://furtherglory.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/arolsen21.jpg

    53,000 deaths at Auschwitz, most died from typhus, none from being “exterminated”, let alone the gas-chamber hoax.

    But Anglos like Duncan love the holotale as it serves the purpose of American self-aggrandizement as “indispensable nation”.

    The holo-tale was invented after the war in a Stalinist kangaroo court by the victors to create the excuse in hindsight of their murderous Anglo-Soviet campaign of military conquest that was WW2, planned as of 1933.

    Little guys like Duncan, with a giant inferiority complex vis-a-vis Europe, and who hasn’t a clue about the terrible geo-strategic situation he and his fellow white Anglos are in, gloat about the victory of a former European colony over the mother civlization, on behest of his kiken-oligarch owners, who send the “greatest generation” into war to fetch the European loot for them.

    Duncan fully adheres to the “peckerwood”-bio, mobster-kike loves to mock about and whose demise he and his crew are planning.

    Duncan is Greater-Baltimore material when the great cleanup of the Heartland will happen, after the upcoming WW3, when millions of European, Russian and Chinese troops will roam North-America, to terminate CW2 and break the “country” (enterprise, really) up.

    An important point is the “concentration” perspective and its transformative qualities. Some places have a large renewable penetration and others don’t. Another important point is renewables are increasing while energy growth is also increasing. It is true that renewables are far from being a transition paradigm like techno optimist cheerlead but they are taking up the slack so to speak and offering another energy option.

  13. Davy on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 6:16 am 

    My personal experience with renewables is they are not saving me money. They have made me more resilient and sustainable. They are part of my REAL Green effort. I gather solar energy with PV’s and also solar water heating with evacuated tubes. I also access the grid as needed. In my home I have a switch box I can switch circuits to grid or solar. I also have a diesel generator. I have a wood boiler for wintertime space heating and water heating. I am not interested in being off the grid completely. I am interested in maximizing gathering of solar energy. Being on and off the grid allows significant flexibility over a totally on or off the grid application. It is my hope my local grid improves its renewable content. It is currently low but rising because Missouri is embracing wind energy from the Great Plains. I also harvest biomass in the form of wood energy and grass for animal feed. I raise animals and have a garden, orchard, and grapes making food calories. I am not self-sufficient but I am much more sustainable and reliant than most people.

    My REAL Green point is as a people we should be doing more harvesting and gathering of lower density energy at the individual level. We should also being doing large scale renewable energy collection. It is my feeling fossil fuels are not going away if we intend to stay modern but we can reduce their usage as civilization degrades from depletion and planetary degradation. Society has no intention of retrogressing and will only be forced into it by planetary realities. My years of study on the subject have shown me the physics and the economics do not add up for a full fossil fuel clean transition. Yet, I have also been pleasantly surprised at the new renewable technologies created in the last few years. I am much more optimistic with renewables and hydrogen then previous years as a bridge sources. This still means eventually we will not have what it takes to maintain the high consumption civilization we have currently nor the population levels. If behavior changed in this regards then we would seek less techno advancement with more sustainability efforts. The degree of behavioral change at this point will dictate how much time we buy. We have the tech what we do not have is the behavior.

    We need to retrogress to a life that is a hybrid of the old ways complimented by the best of the current technology and knowledge. We should try to save the best knowledge and produce more of the best tech to aid this retrogression. This means embracing the best energy gathering and harvesting of lower grade sources that can be economically managed. A garden, animals, and PV’s are not going to save you money. They will represent a cost that can only be managed through a lower standard of living. This hybrid way of life would seek to eliminate the bad consumptive behavior found in consumerism to offset this sacrifice. It would seek to integrate lifestyles into the planetary cycles. These cycles include the hydrologic, carbon, nitrogen, and ecological web of life. Like renewables this activity would be in addition to industrial efforts the modern society cannot dispense with without failing. It comes with the understanding all this modernism will fail eventually in regards its extreme techno nature and also the high population levels. This is very important because it represent acknowledgement first that industrial efforts are needed to be REAL Green and Modern man is at a cross roads of failure. No amount of REAL Green or anything else will save us. Modern man is on death row. Yet, this effort will provide a new growth opportunity that will buy time and offset some of the nasty human foot print on the planetary system and web of life.

    This means permaculture and this means less affluence. This will not be without pain but those who begin the retrogression into a life closer to the planetary cycles by gathering and harvesting lower density energy will be ahead of the curve. What REAL Green is calling for is not a phony transition fake greens advocate as they drive to their getaways, shop the brick or digital malls and eat their cheeseburgers in EV’s and PV houses. Fake green is deceptive and delusional. REAL Green is not saying don’t fake green necessarily. REAL Green is saying acknowledge this state of affairs and begin your work to change. REAL Green is saying be less dirty and combine efforts with offsetting lower density energy. Much of the offsetting efforts are accomplished with efficiency, conservation, and demand management. This requires education and a larger degree of control that reflect the need for a transformative human narrative.

    The failure today is we are talking fantasy green as we accelerate destructive efforts. We are embracing the science that there is a problem with flawed science that says there is an easy solution to something that is a predicament. There are no solutions for the predicament of techno modern man. There are no solutions for bad behavior and lifestyles. Fake greens act like they can have their cake and eat it. REAL Green says acknowledge fake green flaw by living with it while you work on ways to leave it. Stop worrying about fixing something that is broken and utilize the power the status quo offers to leave it. This means you will utilize dirty energy that is not green to be REAL Green but the net result is greener. Dirty energy is there being wasted on a way of life with no future. Bad behavior is everywhere take some of this and make it REAL Green creating a life with more of a future. This is only for some because many are too poor to do it or not smart enough. This may or may not be any fault to them it is just reality. A very small percentage can go REAL Green but those who can will make an oversized difference.

  14. Davy on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 7:03 am 

    Come to think of it. The Kogi are REAL Green but there real poor too, and having lots of money like I do to afford all this stuff isn’t REAL Green at all. Quite the opposite really.

  15. Davy on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 7:21 am 

    “Come to think of it. The Kogi are REAL Green”
    JuanP, Kogi represent REAL Green. They are the blessed ones who are truly awakened. For those who are stuck in the status qup there is REAL Green. You are not real you are a fake. You problem is behavior.

    “but there real poor too”
    Kogi are not at all poor. Explain yourself??

    “having lots of money like I do to afford all this stuff isn’t REAL Green at all. Quite the opposite really.”
    How much money do I have juanpee? I am curious.

  16. JuanP on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 7:32 am 

    Juanpee what are your solutions? Selfishness and lying are all you are offering. You are an illegal alien in the US stealing from Americans. How do you do this? You do this by hating the place and the people yet enjoying its benefits. Sure you are a resident alien but that is just a formality. You take great interest in US politics but don’t become a citizen. You act like a citizen though. Your philosophy is “party hearty” because you are a selfish narcissistic pig. You only care about yourself and hate humanity. Your make no efforts to reduce your footprint or you would be out of Miami Beach. Instead you joy ride by surfing and sailing bragging about how you have no money worries. You offer no meaning to those with interest. All you do is stalk and attack others with hypocritical nonsense not even debating. One issue is you are an unmediated mentally ill person and suffer multiple personality disorders. All this is documented here on this site for anyone to read. BTW, I am very happy you attack and steal my identity. It means I have kicked your lying and stinking ass with intelligence. I welcome your stalking. You have wasted a year of your life over me and for me that is a great victory over your lies and bad behavior. Thanks pee.

    “HOW MUCH WILL THE US WAY OF LIFE HAVE TO CHANGE?”
    “On the future of farming, socialist science, and utopia”
    https://tinyurl.com/y4mpzyr8 climate and capitalism

    “Ecologically-minded socialists and degrowthers tend to point out that cheap energy and excess material use are built into the socio-technical structures of capitalism. Getting rid of capitalism requires replacing capitalist technology. We must build, literally, a new world, which may require more labor and much lighter consumption patterns in the core, especially among the wealthy. Ecosocialists also tend to be more attentive to agriculture’s role in development in the periphery and core. Eco-modernists tend, instead, to focus on eliminating exploitation while maintaining as much as possible of the physical infrastructure and patterns of consumption of capitalism. They imagine machines that will take the place of the current ecologically destructive physical plant, including in the countryside — prototype AI bots to supplant fruit pickers, or non-existent carbon-dioxide-sucking machines in place of restorative agriculture, a proven method of sequestering atmospheric carbon. Very frequently, they imagine a totally post-work world, creating the conditions for a new utopia: Fully Automated Luxury Communism.”

    “Agro-ecology is carbon-dioxide-absorbing, bio-diversity defending, and resilient in the face of climate change. And there is no question of whether smallholders can feed the world, as they outproduce export-oriented heavily capitalized farms on a per-land-area basis. Furthermore, productivity per-person and per-hectare can increase (or yearly labor-inputs decrease) through sustained agro-ecological research and practice, a point at odds with those who insists that smallholder farming is a sentence of perpetual drudgery. What the viable alternative could be is always the question left with no good answer. In the entire peripheral world, smallholder agriculture is the basis for resistance to capitalism: by de-commodifying access to food, by closing off market opportunities for corporate sellers of agro-industrial inputs, by reclaiming land from export-oriented commodity crop production and giving it to poor people for accumulation from below, by increasing the embeddedness of national agricultural systems, and by creating larger internal markets that can form the basis of a sovereign industrialization. Such an industrialization would necessarily rely more on nationally-sourced inputs, preferably renewable ones where possible — for example, there is simply no good socio-ecological reason to rely so heavily on metal and plastic furniture when wood does the job just as well, with far lower CO2 costs and without ripping into the earth.”

    “There is no reason — pragmatic, social, or ecological — to suggest that smallholder farming does not offer the scaffolding for a permanently sustainable and relatively equal world in the periphery. For that reason, we ought to defend agricultural models for the Third World wherein national lands are devoted to sustainably feeding the domestic population. Does that mean that 6-10 percent of the population in the periphery will be involved in agriculture on a permanent basis? Or will such work be rotated? That is for the people, the ones who will build the future, to decide. What is clear is that getting more lands in the hands of smallholders in peripheral states is currently an extremely live anti-systemic struggle.”

    Davy, Real Green to me is 500,000 hunter gatherers spread delicately over the globe, smallish tribes that waste no resources, pollute no rivers, and limit their births to replacement levels. We are not leading to a Real Green future, we are sinking towards a catastrophic dystopia. The heat engine that is Ind Civ cannot be altered enough to function as a Real Green reality. I applaud your efforts but I cannot relate to them. I see doom in humanitys efforts if they’re not going to deal with growth of their numbers or economic growth as their imperative. The 6th Mass Extinction is well underway now and the necessary action needed to make even a token effort to forestall it goes wanting. It seems as though our fate is sealed and I, in reaching the 5th stage now accept it.

  20. Davy on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 9:11 am 

    “Davy, Real Green to me is 500,000 hunter gatherers spread delicately over the globe, smallish tribes that waste no resources, pollute no rivers, and limit their births to replacement levels.”
    Sis, real green is individual and local. Your comment concerns consequences. I agree with you on hunter gatherers but I would call them semi-nomadic also. When this occurs is a big question none of us have answers for. The fact that is coming is likely known based on science but even that statement may reflect doomer bias.

    “I applaud your efforts but I cannot relate to them.”
    I am not sure what efforts you refer to because my REAL Green is a way of life with a hybrid lifestyle as well as being narrative based involving the pursuit of the necessary wisdom of what modernity to leave behind. It involves multiple efforts plus multiple ways of thinking.

    “I see doom in humanitys efforts if they’re not going to deal with growth of their numbers or economic growth as their imperative.”
    I guess you skimmed over my description of REAL Green. I also agree doom is ahead but unlike you I am saying humanity is unable to deal with its numbers and economic growth even if it wanted to and many do. REAL Green is for those who want to but accept honestly these efforts ultimately will not change much. There are no meaningful efforts that can make the required difference in regards to human salvation from dire consequences. There are efforts that can make the situation less dire and give us more life in a terminal state of affairs. This is the part of REAL Green that is the “Deep Adaptation”. Life boats and hospices in the form of monasteries of the awakened are called for and again this is individual and local. Life boats are the prep part and hospices the doom part. The monastery is the local and the community the REAL Green Deep Adaptation is built around.

  21. Davy on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 11:11 am 

    BTW Sis, when I say ‘the awakened’ I’m talking about myself. I’ve been awakened for 18 years now and nothings really happened. That’s what being awakened is all about. People say I’m crazy, but I’m not. I’m just all awakened to the REAL Green Adaptation.

  22. JuanP on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 11:32 am 

    “BTW Sis, when I say ‘the awakened’ I’m talking about myself.”
    Juanpee, anyone who is honest about the science of collapse and the dire consequences for which there are no solutions I consider awakened so yes I am one of the awakened. This then becomes a situation of ascending levels of understanding and call to action so again on that level I am awakened. JuanPee you are unable to be awakened because you are a classic psychopath and sociopath. You are narcassitic and unable to experience empathy. IOW you are a mentally incapable individual to be awakened.

    Here is the proof:
    JuanP on Thu, 30th Jun 2016 4:56 pm
    I think I could use my antisocial, psychopathic, sociopathic skills to convince people to vote for Trump. I can be very convincing when I want and I am excellent at manipulating people.

    Excuse me everyone, I have an announcement to make, further to my excellent essay above that I am sure all of you printed off and are busy sharing with all your friends, neighbors and colleagues even as I write this. Thank you.

    I wish to announce a new aspect to my internationally recognized REAL GREEN paradigm. In order to save the planet, and reduce my carbon foot-print, going forward, I intend to only spend 23.5 hours a day on the internet, monitoring PO.com un-moderated comments section to insure it adheres to highest standards of quantity and content. And by highest quality, I mean only opinions and comments I find agreeable to me personally. But you all know that.

    My own calculations indicate, the 30 mins or so, give or take, that I intend to shut down the internet at my place, will offset the carbon emitted by 10 cows farting methane into the atmosphere. I have not done the calculations for how many goats farts equivalent my 30 mins off-line will offset, because none of those pointy headed liberal asshole scientists have measured goats carbon impact. Only cows. Because liberals hate cows. They are not REAL GREEN, as I am.

    My contribution and sacrifice, will stand in marked contrast to filthy JuanPeee, who just flys around South America, picking up every single latino playboy he can find, and flying them to Miami Beach, where they sit around the beach sipping tequila and partying all day long.

    Just be aware, I may not take my 30 mins off all in one continuous time-frame. I could break them down into 3 separate REAL GREEN 10 minute time-outs. Or one 20 min. REAL GREEN break, and a 10 min. one. I might even take 6, 5-minute internet power-downs. Have not decided yet.

    I will keep you all up to date on this exciting new paradigm, from me. Stay tuned friends.

    Except you Juanpee. You can rot in Miami Beach for all I care.

    “ It seems as though our fate is sealed and I, in reaching the 5th stage now accept it.” I’m still stuck somewhere between anger and denial Sis.”
    Juanpee, I agree you are stuck but your issues are mental illness and self-medication with hard drugs.

    “Excuse me everyone, I have an announcement to make, further to my excellent essay above that I am sure all of you printed off and are busy sharing with all your friends, neighbors and colleagues even as I write this. Thank you.”
    Ah, juanpee, why are you such a dork and play these games? LOL.

    “I wish to announce a new aspect to my internationally recognized REAL GREEN paradigm. In order to save the planet, and reduce my carbon foot-print, going forward, I intend to only spend 23.5 hours a day on the internet, monitoring PO.com un-moderated comments section to insure it adheres to highest standards of quantity and content. And by highest quality, I mean only opinions and comments I find agreeable to me personally. But you all know that.”
    Juanpee, you are exaggerating a bit don’t ya think? BTW, juanpee, where did I say in my REAL Green about saving the planet? My carbon foot print is much lower than your Miami Beach playboy one. I guess this makes you angry or something.

    “My own calculations indicate, the 30 mins or so, give or take, that I intend to shut down the internet at my place, will offset the carbon emitted by 10 cows farting methane into the atmosphere. I have not done the calculations for how many goats farts equivalent my 30 mins off-line will offset, because none of those pointy headed liberal asshole scientists have measured goats carbon impact. Only cows. Because liberals hate cows. They are not REAL GREEN, as I am.”
    LOL, juanpee, if you think you are stupid you are if you think you are funny you are not.

    “My contribution and sacrifice, will stand in marked contrast to filthy JuanPeee, who just flys around South America, picking up every single latino playboy he can find, and flying them to Miami Beach, where they sit around the beach sipping tequila and partying all day long.”
    You said it I didn’t. I was pretty sure you were Bi but now we know. You like dick.

    “Just be aware, I may not take my 30 mins off all in one continuous time-frame. I could break them down into 3 separate REAL GREEN 10 minute time-outs. Or one 20 min. REAL GREEN break, and a 10 min. one. I might even take 6, 5-minute internet power-downs. Have not decided yet.”
    Dumb and dumber

    “I will keep you all up to date on this exciting new paradigm, from me. Stay tuned friends. Except you Juanpee. You can rot in Miami Beach for all I care.”
    Well, I hope your chorionic depression worsens because assholes like you deserve pain!

    Sure siss… 6 million, 19 Arabs with boxcutters, cannibalism… I know the routine by now of how your gang operates. Just throw dirt, something will always stick, right?

    Now why don’t you just sit still and be the speechless benevolent greatest generation exceptionalist.

    JuanPee how bad was it? Can you describe the mental trauma for us. Tell us how Davy changed your whole life and now you live in a state of obsessive compulsive stalking. There is help and a place to start would be here:

    Douglas Gardens Community Mental Health Center of Miami Beach

    Adults of all ages and backgrounds come to the Center for help managing their symptoms and living comfortably within the community. Our broad array of behavioral health care programs and services help these individuals achieve a more functional life and support resiliency and recovery for individuals who are living with mental illness. The Center treats chronic mental illness, acute emotional disorders, substance abuse, and special population needs. The center’s bilingual professionals (English and Spanish) also provide help for individuals with substance abuse problem, experiencing domestic violence, living homeless, and needing help with a loved one that has Alzheimer’s disease.

    They speak Spanish too, juanpee.

    Real Douche-bag. What do you think of that?

    Opps. Sorry, you’ve been running that one for years. Sorry for stating the obvious.

    I’ll let you get back to being the Real Douche-bag we all know and despise.

    Juan, get help, I did. I am stalking Davy and Cloggie much less lately. Take it day by day in baby steps.

  37. JuanP on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 6:24 pm 

    Anon, are there any support groups in your area for compulsive stalking?

  38. Anonymouse on Sat, 15th Jun 2019 6:30 pm 

    Don’t know if this’ll help, but I recently proposed an answer for a very similar question yesterday: What do I do if I am a stalker? How do I stop stalking? In essence, you need to take stock of what the stalking habit is doing both to you and your target, acknowledge that it is at base a selfish act that is doing no one any good and at least one person some significant mental anguish, and probably seek some help in therapy. It’ll be a hard habit to give up, you’ll probably relapse, and it’s better if you go through this with the aid of a professional if possible. If not, you need to find outlets to spend your time and radically give up things that contribute to the habit.

    The fact that you know what you’re doing and want to stop is an encouraging first step. Some stalkers never slow down long enough to realize what they’re really doing, or learn to justify it too well. Perhaps even fewer understand exactly why they’re doing it. Don’t try to make amends with your target, don’t try to contact anyone near them and make amends. If you have a mutual friend that you trust, you could talk about the issue and express your regret over everything. But don’t try to induce them to talk to your stalking target about your feelings over the issue. Do it for yourself; this is a habit that relies upon secrecy for most. Unless you’re already far gone, there are almost definitely things and people you don’t want to give up. If you’re beyond that point, definitely seek help immediately. Therapy will be your best bet to recovery.
