What is anyone doing on this site? It has almost no active posters (and you haven't been one of them lately). Whatever charter this site once had has ceased to have any relevance as it became the ghost town it now is.

Pound for pound, most of the posts here are not about peak oil at all. They may be coming from people who were once concerned about it, and maybe people who are waiting endlessly for it to become an issue again, but they're not talking about peak oil per se. They're about other dooms or just your usual tit for tat ad homs and petty partisan politics. If you took away Short and PStarr's futile attempts to connect anything and everything to peak-oil I doubt you'd have more more than a handful of actual peak oil posts in an entire week, as that's about all the subject deserves based on where we are on the continuum. The discussion has cratered.

So, are you a mod all the sudden?

Are only doomers sporting lots of opinions and few facts allowed now?

Are you unable to deal with any opinions or facts but those you like?

You seem SERIOUSLY delusional.
Given the track record of the perma-doomer blogs, I wouldn't bet a fast crash doomer's money on their predictions.

Learn to write. Learn to proof read. Learn to use credible citations for your opinions.

THEN tell us who can't see.

Oh, and as far as needing to get outside, being a depressed doomer insisting that the end is nigh would imply YOU need to look in the mirror, re your "sage" advice. Again, the delusion seems to be strong in you.

From your link. The author of this doomer piece:

Charles Tonderai Mudede, The Stranger’s film editor, is a Zimbabwean-born cultural critic, urbanist, filmmaker, college lecturer, and writer.

Apparently any knowledge of economics, either by experience or education, is not required to write doomer porn.

The global slowdown appears real. It may only be coincidental to the tariff wrangle between the US and China. Several weeks ago I saw an article somewhere concerning how the Chinese were actively trying to curtail the amount of leverage within their economy. They have been doing the equivalent of what happens in the US, when the Fed raises rates. Could it simply be that the world has gotten to a point where another economy has grown large enough to require consideration? When China slows down there are all kinds of markets outside of it that suffer. We have known for some time about their model of supply chains to factories. We've grown to think that those factories are all about shipping goods to Europe and the United States. We are less comfortable with acknowledging the role of Chinese domestic consumption within their economy. The people in China who make economic policy are not ignorant of that, however.

For some strange reason the US has not countered Chinese efforts to ingratiate itself with the rest of the world. China has, in fact, taken advantage of the US war making around the world to come in afterward and set up enterprises. While the US has been busy making war, the Chinese have been doing business. This may have something to do with how in the US professional positions have been systematically eliminated and replaced by non-professional adjunct workers, to the point where no one can rely upon a life long career anymore. There just aren't experts in positions within the American idea of what it is to be in business who could spot what is going on and make a case to management, or the government, concerning what the Chinese are doing and counter it.

It's the product of Monetarism. Tha't the prevailing form of economic theory, and it has failed to keep wage growth up, in comparison to every other segment that can be measured within the economy. The US isn't full of experts anymore, who deserve high pay. Instead, it is full of people who can do piecemeal work at the behest of some app. As such, it has lost an entire center around which it used to pivot when it encountered close economic competition, it's working core. You can't make an appeal to something that doesn't have a philosophical basis for its own self-understanding. You can't ask a whole bunch of people who are only after the scraps to make a sacrifice for the good of the country. You can't expect to hear from the soul of a country that doesn't have humanity at the center of its practices, but least cost instead. The only people in America who can do that these days are those with high and mighty ideas and all kinds of venture capital backing.

Strangely enough Republican Trump supporters are quite well represented here. The cognitive dissonance runs strong.

age70-

Yes, I have noticed. The resistance is also represented, just not so vocal. It's like displaying the flag. I don't need to show everyone I'm a good American. When I was told to serve my country, that's exactly what I did.

Trump and I attended the same high school-New York Military Academy, Cornwall on Hudson, New York. Fellow classmates never shirked their military service requirements in Vietnam with one notable exception. Trump used daddy’s money and power to avoid military service by obtaining multiple fake medical deferments. Narcissistic Trump determined his time was better spent in NYC “grabbing pussy”. Is it any wonder why the military is opposed to Trump’s $100 million military parade? As a Pentagon official commented, “The US is not a banana republic and Trump is not a dictator. Military parades are reserved for special occasions.”

I forgot to mention, isn't it strange how so many Republican neo-con warmongers like Cheney and Trump avoided military service, yet they love the idea of committing the country to war?

15. Mississippi flood

Affected area: Mississippi River region
Date of event: 1927
Fatalities: 246
Cost: $41.7 billion
People living along the Mississippi River know it floods often -- and they have learned to live with it. But no one was ready for what historians called one of the greatest peacetime disasters in U.S. history in April 1927. The Great Mississippi River Flood engulfed 16 million acres and displaced about 640,000 people from Illinois to Louisiana. In Vicksburg, Mississippi, the river swelled to 80 miles wide.

Same deal with Obama. And he was even a D!!!

You'd think hanging out with all the other honest, virtuous, and peace loving Ds would've made obama peace loving and virtuous too, but no.....Even though Obama campaigned on ending Bush's wars as soon as obama took office he went 180° back on his promises and we were off to war again with a massive troop surge into Afghanistan, and then a little war in Libya, and then Obama sent US troops back into Iraq, and then Obama started a whole new war in Syria.

Well...lets not make that mistake again. But its hard to know which D candidate is the most honest, virtuous and peace loving this time around........maybe Pete?

Cheers!
