Snippet:

…For a while longer, a few lucky graduates in a few fields may still glom onto this ever spiraling downward system, but the percentages get smaller all the time. Globally, the energy economy has reached criticality, and its not the Supply end that controls what will be accessed, but the demand end. Demand is being destroyed as an ever greater percentage of the global population is impoverished and simply cannot afford to buy and burn the energy. Demand Destruction outpaces any Quantitative Easing, and all the monetary game does is shift around the pain from one country to another for a while, but everyone is on the downhill slide and nothing will change that. The world has contracted Economic Ebola, and this is a terminal disease for Industrial Civilization…

For the rest, LISTEN TO THE RANT!!!

    The worst schmoozers off this corrupt system after the banksters themselves are those bucket-shop vocational colleges one sees advertised ad nauseum on the Maury Povich Baby-Mama Drama Hour. Even before the industrial economy started getting Ebola, the odds of graduating from one of these places landing you an actual well-paying job with real benefits was…not good.

    Hi RE

    Very insightful rant. The oil economy has had a good run but it’s near over. Now it’s all about depopulation. I have been working on a H. Sapien reduction scenario but it’s been proving to be a difficult undertaking. If I ever get it done I sm going to offer it to you for posting first. I am trying to put some humor into it to take the edge off of 6.5 billion people dying in the next 15 years. Guy says extinction, but if we are all gone chronicling it serves no purpose. I intend to have you be the leader of the last tribe and yes, in Alask a where the weather will be more like Mexico where I live.

    I’m not gonna be leading anything, I’m on my way out the door on my inevitable trip to the Other Side.

    Just trying to get as much down on the Disc as I can here before I Check Out for Good.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
