Natural Energy Cycles, Human Arrogance and Economic Consequences / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Brian_Bloom

Below is a quote from an article on “tight oil” production that appeared at http://www.econbrowser.com/archives/2012/12/future_producti.html . It captures the overall thrust of the article itself and also of the comments that flowed from readers.

“The 2005 to 2011 rate of decline in the GNE [Gross Net Exports of oil]/CNI [China and India consumption of oil] ratio, if extrapolated, suggests that China and India would be consuming 100% of Global Net Exports of oil in the year 2030, which is 18 years from now. Of course, I don’t think that will actually happen, and there is already some suggestion of a slowing demand from the Chindia region or at least a decline in the rate of increase in consumption, but the trend through 2011 is pretty clear, and the rate of decline in the GNE/CNI ratio accelerated from 2008 to 2011, versus 2005 to 2008.”

LIBOR This - HooHa: Finally, A Few Bankers Face Criminal Prosecutions For Conspiracies / Politics / Banksters

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: When most mainstream media outlets discuss conspiracy theories, it is usually to debunk the views of dissenting and critical thinkers who are routinely denounced as simplistic, paranoid or worse. 

You have frequently seen the mantra questioning their motives and conclusions as if the idea of people or officials acting together covertly to advance their interests in illegal ways is something new in history.

UK Dash for Shale Natural Gas - A Faustian Bargain / Politics / Natural Gas

By: Raul_I_Meijer

The UK is set to embark on its second dash for gas. The first, beginning in the early 1990s, occurred when gas was first permitted to be used for power generation. Prior to that it had been considered a premium fuel too valuable to be used in this way. The regulatory change initiated a substantial building programme for combined cycle gas plants, fuelled by North Sea gas. Very quickly gas generation became a major component of baseload in the UK, despite warnings that North Sea gas was a temporary bonus and its depletion would leave a structural dependency on Russian gas.

Mayan Apocalypse Myth And New Age Degeneracy / Politics / Religion

By: Andrew_McKillop

FAST BURNOUT
Wikipedia tells us that the Spanish conquest of Yucatán and then other Mayan regions in today's Guatemala and Belize was above all rapid - it took at most 20 years - but was much slower than the two-year total wipeout of the Aztec, further south in central America, through 1519-1521.

Eurozone 2013 Breakup Now Even More Likely / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

Martin Hutchinson writes: To the complete shock of several analysts, the Eurozone managed to make it through 2012 without breaking up. However, 2013 is another story.

Now that Italy's Prime Minister Mario Monti has resigned, there's a good chance that Italy will be in the forefront of a new Eurozone crisis.

Doha Hoha - Global Warming Hits A Scientific Iceberg / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

World media has already forgotten the Doha COP18 climate jamboree earlier this month, during which the Qatari conference director, oil minister Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiya joked that soon Qatar, and the world will no longer need any fossil fuels at all, eliminating any problem of burning them and causing planetary warming. The debate soon lost itself on the strange, almost theological subject of climate treaties and loss or damage payments and awards to small island states and low income countries.

Obama's Last Chance To Become A Great President / Politics / US Politics

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Barack Obama has one last, fleeting chance of becoming known to posterity as a Great President.

His first four years were nothing to write home about, but with the burden of seeking re-election gone, you could argue that he can now throw off the shackles that held him back - and down - since January 20, 2009, and at last show his true face and intentions.

NRA BE DAMNED! / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Several days after the tragic shootings of December 14 in Newtown, Connecticut, I spoke to another writer and asked him to share his thoughts and feelings about this horrible event. He, an avowed enemy-of-the-people in the eyes of American Conservatives because he is committed to "Peace"; he, who never owned a gun and wrote occasional pleas advocating controlling the most dangerous of these firearms that George Bush and like-minded Republicans unleashed from restrictions; he, who has given every inch in justifying the Constitutional "rights" of everyone, including gun owners, replied: "The next time I hear someone yell '2nd Amen!' and recite specious propaganda or endlessly repeat conspiracy theories produced for gain by the NRA, I'm going to put down my pen, go out, buy a gun, and I'm going to shoot him! NRA? 2nd Amen? Be damned!"

Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition, Slaughter of the Innocents / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: The late December holidays in America used to be known as “the season to be jolly,” with our streets festooned with bright lights, groups caroling, shopping galore, gift-giving and cheer.

This year, there’s a pall over all the light heartedness because of the horrific violence that claimed the lives of 20 young school children and their teachers in a still unexplained shooting incident in Connecticut, the latest of a string of similar events involving widely available deadly weapons often in the hands of mentally ill people.

The Geopolitics of Shale Oil and Gas / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

Robert D. Kaplan writes: According to the elite newspapers and journals of opinion, the future of foreign affairs mainly rests on ideas: the moral impetus for humanitarian intervention, the various theories governing exchange rates and debt rebalancing necessary to fix Europe, the rise of cosmopolitanism alongside the stubborn vibrancy of nationalism in East Asia and so on. In other words, the world of the future can be engineered and defined based on doctoral theses. And to a certain extent this may be true. As the 20th century showed us, ideologies -- whether communism, fascism or humanism -- matter and matter greatly.

Al Capone And The Bible, Newtown-Type Terror And Economic Terror / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

According to Dr. John R. Lott, described as one of the USA's leading gun experts,  banning gun-free schools, or gun-free zones inside schools, and allowing teachers to carry concealed weapons at all times "could help eliminate mass shootings at schools". For Lott, gun-free schools or zones inside them are like smaller and weaker nations. They become “a magnet” for deranged killers and World Tyrants who hope to burn their names into history books by running up the highest-possible body count.

Why the Federal Reserve Is So Dangerous / Politics / Central Banks

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: The Federal Reserve System is a government-sanctioned private enterprise that functions as a socialist tool.

It was conceived in 1910 and constructed for the benefit of the private bankers who control it. Congress blessed the scheme in 1913 with passage of the Federal Reserve Act.

American Gun Culture of 2012 / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Jan. 8, 2011, Tuscon, Ariz.: A man had gone to a political town meeting at a supermarket, with the intent to murder Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. He killed six and wounded 14, including Giffords, who was shot in the head. On Jan. 25, 2012, Giffords, still in recovery from the shooting, walked onto the House floor to a standing ovation. Congress and the President have no plans to restore the assault weapons ban that expired under the Bush–Cheney Administration or to tighten gun laws.

Mass Murders in American State Schools / Politics / US Politics

By: Jack_D_Douglas

In my early life [born 1937] I lived all over the U.S. I saw lots of guns. I was present at various gun incidents in arguments and fights. Few ever ended in shootings. My mother's employer threatened my stepfather with a pistol to stop his beating my mother. He stopped. I did know people who were shot or shot other people. A younger brother shot the husband of one of my mother's sisters near the heart to stop him from beating our aunt. [It was a 22. He lived with the bullet in place. My brother was sent to a minimum security camp for months and eventually walked away and came to live with us.] The employer of that aunt caught a robber in the act where she worked and shot him to death with a shot gun.

Fiscal Cliff Is a Diversion From Dollar Bubble Trouble / Politics / US Debt

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The “fiscal cliff” is another hoax designed to shift the attention of policymakers, the media, and the attentive public, if any, from huge problems to small ones.

The fiscal cliff is automatic spending cuts and tax increases in order to reduce the deficit by an insignificant amount over ten years if Congress takes no action itself to cut spending and to raise taxes. In other words, the “fiscal cliff” is going to happen either way.

America's Conditioning, Children Randomly Slaughtered in Schoolrooms and by Predator Drones / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World

The world makes less sense every day. Little children are randomly slaughtered in their schoolrooms. Predator drones roam the skies over foreign countries exterminating bad guys, along with innocent women and children (collateral damage when it occurs in a foreign country). Drugged up mentally ill kids with no hope and no future live lives of secluded quiet desperation until they snap. Ignorant, government educated, welfare dependent drones with no self respect or respect for others, assault, kill and rob within their government created urban jungles.

Western Nations Saying Goodbye to Liberaty / Politics / Social Issues

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The human race, in its advanced economic form, is committing euthanasia. The US, UK, Europe and Japan are all implementing economic policies that must ultimately result in the complete destruction of their currencies; and if you destroy the means of exchange of goods and services, your people will starve. The political class and government establishments have drifted in incremental steps into this tragedy. Far from being the guiding hand for society, they are its destroyers.
