Doom twenty years from now isn't near as exciting as impending doom or doom that the infamous "they" don't want you to know about.

Algeria with a population of 40 million and post peak oil seems to be next nation to collapse.

The protests in Algeria starts after the Friday prayers, which indicates that the Islamists will take power in Algeria when the current regime falls.

Syria and Yemen have collapsed. Venezuela is on the brink of collapse. The world will perhaps not collapse together at the same time...but nation after nation.

War in Libya. The eastern government backed by Russia, Egypt, UAE and France has launched an attack against the capitol Tripoli and the western government backed by the U.S, Turkey and Italy.

The aim seems to to control the entire Libyan nation and its oil.

Chris Clugston’s book “Scarcity”? Here is a summary/review:

https://www.ecologise.in/wp-content/upl ... ugston.pdf

“Clugston argues that our modern industrialized civilization and improving standards of
living are made possible by an indispensable use of fossil fuels, metals, and non-metallic
minerals that are never replenished in any relevant time span. There are 89 of these nonrenewable minerals and Clugston meticulously analyses each. Those that are viable
economically are becoming scarcer and more costly. When their extraction/ production
ceases to rise, as is now happening, it is inevitable that a sharp decline in global societal
wellbeing must follow. Indeed, he shows that the Great Recession of 2008 was
precipitated by the rising costs of non-renewable natural resources NNRs.”

"Peak Rare Earths" was kicked around and ultimately discredited about three years back. All such substances can be recovered fron the oceans, if only you have the available energy....

He looks about how I expected him to look. He joins a growing number of other doomers who are, ahem, dying off before the fabled die-off occurs. All doom is ultimately personal and usually mundane.

Also rather strange that he chose to bugout in Hawaii of all places. Hardly a sustainable location despite a growing amount of solar being used.

We'll see how long his site stays up. It's been an anachronistic museum-piece for some time now.
