Despite the title of this article, it has absolutely ZERO to do with Henry 8th, King of England in the early part of the 16th Century, despite the fact it was a very interesting time period, just predating the real birth of Capitalism which didn't arrive until the 17th Century and the founding of the Bank of England by Master of the Mint at the time, Sir Isaac Newton.  Yes, that is the same Isaac Newton famous for Newtonian Mechanics, his Gravity Equation, the Apple falling on his Head and so forth.  His most significant achievement though was that along with the German mathematician Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, they simultaneously invented The Calculus.  You know, that Math class most of you never took, or if you did you only did so because it was required and you hated it and only did the first year of it on Differentiation and Integration.  Not so with me, I LOVED mathematics, and took many further courses […] Continue Reading…

Collapse is now certain. It has been certain for a long time. But even collapse aware people have a hard time admitting this hard truth. Tipping points are without question crossed. Arctic methane is being released. Atmospheric CO2 concentration is on a fast climb. Perhaps this is not news to you? Perhaps you are a rare individual who knows atmospheric CO2 is now 0.55% more than it was one year ago.

CO2 is rising fast. Half a percent a year now. A rather important thing to know. A fact that should be known by more than a few people. People who don't know what to do with the information once they have it it. Thinkers who do not act. Half a percent a year should be common knowledge and the subject of talk everywhere we go. In another culture it would be. Not in America. This culture prefers to die.

Half a percent a year and increasing with no decrease possible. Atmospheric CO2 concentration does not go down. […] Continue Reading…

OK!  I got  my Garrisons out working scarfing up Resources for my Clan, plus I took a very necessary NAP because I was up since about 4AM Alaska Time both playing my Game (Vikings: War of Clans) as well as cooking and producing the video at the head of this article.  Very BIZZY early morning for a retired cripple!  lol.

Black Saturday: 7th December 2009, Victoria Australia.

180 people died, 450,000 ha (1,100,000 acres) burnt,7,562 people displaced,Over 3,500 structures destroyed, including over 2,000 houses.

The statistics sound bad enough. They dont tell half the story.

The area:
I live in Wallan Victoria. This is the start of the “high country” 50km dirrectly North of the Melbourne CBD, with Pretty Sally Mountain (Tiny by any other continents standards), being the first major rise you come to. My 2 acre rural/ residential property is about half way up Pretty Sally.

To my North is the town of Kilmore, where one of the main fires started when some overheated power lines failed. East of Kimore is Whittlesea and Kinglake, where I regularly go to cut firewood eith in the local state forest or on a private property. From Kinglake to Marysville further East again is thinly populated mountainous bushland with samll towns and farms all along the outskirts of Melbourne. It had been a place where saw mills popped up in the late 19th […] Continue Reading…

On Thursday night, Trump ordered the assassination of Major General Qassim Suleimani, a top commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, without any notification nor authorization from Congress, . The drone strike also killed four others outside Baghdad’s international airport. To attempt to put this in context, imagine China or North Korea assassinating the US Joint Chief of Staff outside the airport in Mexico City. Trump is pushing us to the brink of unnecessary war. When Trump entered office in 2016, he inherited one of the best chances in decades the US has had for peaceful relations with Iran. Three years later, with a cabinet full of ideologues and warmongers, he’s torn up a treaty and is now […] Continue Reading…

What keeps you going?

« on: December 31, 2019, 06:50:22 AM

 

Learning about all this stuff has made me quite a bit less cheery and optimistic than I used to be. That is completely understandable, but I (and my parents) am worried about getting myself into some mental rut where I feel only sad, angry, scared, etc.

All of you have been thinking about and dealing with this stuff for a lot longer than I have, and you all still seem to be doing okay. My question is: When the going gets tough, what keeps you getting out of bed every morning? Do you have hope for humanity, even if it is a tiny sliver of the population? Do you carry hope for life itself? Or do you take some other perspective entirely? Looking forward to your responses.

Happy New Years

"Violence is as American as cherry pie."  –H. Rap Brown​  

2019 has been a year of notable accomplishments and disasters: China became the first country to gain access to the far side of the moon, thus announcing itself in the space race, the Ebola epidemic continued in the Congo, birds and insects continue to die at alarming rates, upsetting natural ecosystems everywhere, drought continued in southern Africa and, more recently, Australia, in combination with ruinous bush fires. California continue to burn during the autumn months.

War continued in Yemen, with millions on the brink of famine and starvation. Protests swept the world, from Haiti to Hong Kong, also making appearances in Chile, Ecuador, and Bolivia. (It seems some folks don’t like neocolonialism as much as the west does.) Migrants continue to flee from the Middle East and Africa, and Central America, to places with more hospitable climate and arable soil; Nationalists shrieked in horror, rushed to build walls and whip up furor against potential newcomers. Brazil’s Boisonaro continued to burn the Amazon rainforest; people around the world wringing their hands. United States declared a trade […] Continue Reading…

The Winter Solstice has arrived again like the astronomical clock that it is.  With that comes the long dark nights and the bitter cold of deep Winter, particularly up here on the Last Great Frontier of Alaska.  Right now we only get around 6 hours of daylight where I live in the Matanuska-Susitna River Valley, and the outside temperature tonught here is 4F or -16C, whichever scale you prefer it is fucking COLD!

Not so down under in Oz, where they are setting record heat nearing 122F or 50C, and baically the entire province of New South Wales is on FIRE.  NSW is where most of the population of Oz lives, it's where the Sydney Opera House is located.  One of our Diners, John of Wallan lives in the neighboring province of Victoria where the other Oz Big Shity of Melbourne is located, and they are doing a bit better than NSW but the fire danger is still EXTREME.  He lives on a Doomstead […] Continue Reading…

I hope this finds you well and, at least for now, safe.

When I sat down a few weeks ago to start sketching what I would write about for this post, and after several false starts it dawned on me that there really is nothing much more to say! At least there is nothing really new to say. It seems that all of the kinds of global dangers I have been concerned about for all these years are now sufficiently advanced to be visible to all but the most stubborn willfully ignorant. And there are certainly many of those. Nevertheless, we now have growing movements such as behind Greta and Extinction Rebellion re: climate chaos. There have been a steadily growing number of economists who are starting to question the conventional wisdom regarding capitalism and free markets, if not the conventional theories behind the quasi-science. The public is still being hoodwinked by the oil and gas industries regarding the future of fossil fuel energy production; they have hyped the fracking […] Continue Reading…

On Greta Thunberg: A Letter to my Non-Western Friends

 

Dear non-Western friends,

first of all, let me tell you that I understand your perplexity about Greta Thunberg. I understand how you see this latest stunt of the Western Media of naming her "Person of the Year." From your viewpoint, it looks just like another trick of the West, one among many. And I understand that it makes you even more suspicious that the whole story of climate change is nothing but a hoax created by the Western Empire to maintain its grip on the whole planet.

Yes, I understand. But I would like to ask you to make an effort to understand us, the Westerners. You see, sometimes I have a feeling that one of the characteristics of Hell could be that the people who are in it don't realize that they are in Hell. It would be truly wicked, but it was a Western poet, Baudelaire, who said that the best trick of the devil is to convince you that […] Continue Reading…

In part 10 of this series I expressed the opinion that supplies of electrical power, diesel fuel and money will be at the heart of many of the troubles that lie ahead as collapse progresses. Especially for those of us living in small remote towns, as I recommend you do. Over the last few posts I've spent a lot of time considering the gradual breakdown of the power grid, the effects that will have, and how we might prepare for them. Today I'll move on to consider what happens when supplies of diesel fuel become problematical.

For a number of solid technical reasons, diesel engines are preferred to gasoline engines for ships, locomotives, heavy trucks, and agricultural equipment. If, like me, you're living in a small remote town, the latter two are of great importance. Essentially everything that gets here comes in a truck that burns diesel fuel. Much of that stuff falls in the "necessities of life" category. Agriculture is an important […] Continue Reading…

Working up the energy for a blog for Sunday Collapse Brunch this week has been tough for a few reasons.  Health wise, I am doing crappy again, but this isn't the only problem.  My main computer is also getting close to death, it was crashing on me about every hour for a few days.  Now it seems to be in a sort of remission.and hasn't crashed since late last night.  So I am risking writing an article and hoping I don't lose it before I have a chance to publish.

Beyond the health issues and technical problems there are other deeper ones ongoing here.  As I peruse the headlines on the Google Search Engine each day there is a new riot occurring in a new city.  The entire continent of South America appears to be on fire now.  Colombia, Chile, Venezuela, Brazil…you can bring up Videos now on YouTube that are IRL versions of Children of Men every day.  Then there's Hong Kong, Paris, Barcelona and of course Istanbul […] Continue Reading…

Thanksgiving 2019 has ARRIVED, and it's time to itemize what we have to be Thankful for this year.  We can be Thankful for the fact many of us are still alive, although according to Statistics, we are dieing faster every day.  We can be Thankful for the fact that FOOD is still available here in the FSoA at mostly affordable prices even on a SNAP Card budget. We can be Thankful that as of this morning, Planet Earth has not collided with a Planet Killer asteroid.

Beyond that though, we have a good deal MORE not to be Thankful for here on the last Thursday of November 2019.  It's not a great day for Happy Motoring to your relatives for your Turkey Dinner, since a Bomb Cyclone has dumped mega tons of snow in many spots acrss the country.  It's not too good for Albanians who lost everything in their latest Earthquake.  Californicators who have been burned out of their McMansions or just […] Continue Reading…

I recently listened to a podcast from the "Counterpunch" website on oil and the global economy which I found disappointing. https://store.counterpunch.org/jp-sottile-episode-140/ JP Sottile certainly appeared knowledgeable about the geopolitics of oil in the Middle East but exhibited zero understanding of Peak Oil which he therefore declared to be “garbage”. He asserted that the idea of Peak Oil was a ploy to create “artificial scarcity” to prop up oil prices. He subscribed to the common delusion that current low oil prices disprove Peak Oil and indicate that oil must be abundant and will remain so for the foreseeable future, a completely wrong-headed view. http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/blog/2017/07/13/the-economics-of-unconventional-oils-externalities-be-damned/

He repeated the mainstream mantra that there is now a “chronic oil glut”, a completely erroneous way of looking at things. Gross liquid hydrocarbon output may have risen since 2006 but net production of true oil has actually been flat or fallen. http://www.doomsteaddiner.net/blog/2019/01/02/how-business-as-usual-has-been-pursued-since-2006-by-escalating-fraud-and-environmental-vandalism/#comment-10693

I'm doing something new this time, which is to publish a post that is almost entirely the work on one of my regular readers and commenters, Joe Clarkson, who lives off-grid on the Big Island of Hawaii. My knowledge of solar electric systems is entirely theoretical and I have always found that in the process of actually building something like this, one learns a great deal that isn't covered in the books. So I am pleased to present this material from someone who can speak with a much greater degree of practical experience than me.

I do have a few comments to make, but I'll save those for the end of the post.

“If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell”  ― Carl Sandburg

Last night, Trump tweeted "…." An ellipsis. Later a message that "Something very big has just happened!" Today, Trump says that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the founder and leader of the Islamic State, has been killed after a U.S. special operations mission targeted him in northwestern Syria. Trump claimed credit, declaring that U.S. forces have brought "the world's No. 1 terrorist leader to justice." 

This latest announcement is part of a diversion to hijack the narrative of the past week, and change the subject from a devastating confirmation of his misdeeds, corruptions and felonies while in office. After several weeks of having both the facts and the law go against #TeamTreason, Trump and his gaggle of dead-enders are reduced to hijacking the narrative, pounding the table and stealing the valor of American servicemen. Because the facts are in, and Trump's impeachment is a certainty.

Across the Collapse Blogosphere, you'll repeatedly run into the acronym "SHTF".  There's even at least two blogs titled with the acronym,  SHTF Plan  &  SHTF Blog .  I'm sure there are others, but those two make it into the Top 15 of "Survivalist" Blogs.  Here on the Diner on an economic level we often discuss "SHTF Day".  It's the day the ATMs go down or the liquidity dries up in the ovenright interbank lending market or the stock market drops 5000 points in a day, that sort of thing.  Total MAYHEM ensues after such an event of course, which would be a watershed and marker as we move inexorably down the Collapse Highway.  The Stock Market crash of 1929 was such an event, and for those of you interested in comparison of what occured 90 years ago to the week to today, this is a good documentary recently produced (there are of course many of them).
