Oh Oil, Where is Thy Peak?

ACS Editor Comment:
For several years I myself was a “peakist”, after reading Michael Ruppert’s book Crossing the Rubicon. Fortunately I decided to revisit the topic and discovered that Ruppert and many others were victims of a very extensive and successful propaganda campaign – science for hire, so to speak. See The Peak Oil Theory Story. Unfortunately, the CO2 climate change theory is another example of science for hire that is being funded and promoted by those who want to install a one world government. Both falsehoods are exposed in John Truman Wolf’s wonderful short but concise exposé The Anatomy of a Con Job.


oil drillingThere are two great myths used in recent years to convince the world of imminent catastrophe unless we drastically change our living style in the direction of austerity. Both myths are based on scientific fraud and uncritical propagation by sympathetic mainstream and even some alternative media. One is the idea that world climate is warming, or at least “changing,” owing almost solely to us, to our man-made emissions. The second great myth, launched first in 1956 in Houston Texas by an employee of one of the world’s largest oil companies, was dusted off some 15 years ago at the start of the Dick Cheney-George W. Bush Administration. It’s called the theory of Peak Oil.

The good news is our coastal cities are not about to be washed away by melting icebergs or rising oceans, nor is our supply of conventional oil and gas–hydrocarbons–likely to run out for centuries or more. It has nothing to do with the highly damaging and very costly extraction of tight oil from shale rocks, but with the abundance of conventional oil around the world, the vast part of which has yet to be discovered or even mapped.

The most dramatic discoveries of new oil and gas reserves in recent years has come from the Mediterranean in areas off Cyprus, Israel, Lebanon and believed to be offshore Greece as well. In 2010 Israel and the Houston, Texas company, Noble Energy, discovered the largest offshore gas field, Leviathan. It was the world’s largest gas discovery in a decade, with enough gas to serve Israel for at least a century. The geophysics of the offshore areas around Greece suggest that that hapless country could also have more than enough undiscovered oil and gas to repay all foreign debt and more. Not surprisingly the Washington-led IMF demands that Greece privatize her state oil and gas companies, a near certainty that major Western oil firms would sit on their development as was done in past decades until leases expired in 2004 and reverted back to the Greek Government.

We Were Wrong on Peak Oil

Editor’s Note: And George is wrong about CO2 global warming as well! So, why has so much money been thrown at promoting TWO false theories? To create the ‘need’ for a replacement of the petrodollar – the carbon credit electronic currency!

The facts have changed, now we must change too. For the past 10 years an unlikely coalition of geologists, oil drillers, bankers, military strategists and environmentalists has been warning that peak oil – the decline of global supplies – is just around the corner. We had some strong reasons for doing so: production had slowed, the price had risen sharply, depletion was widespread and appeared to be escalating. The first of the great resource crunches seemed about to strike.

Among environmentalists it was never clear, even to ourselves, whether or not we wanted it to happen. It had the potential both to shock the world into economic transformation, averting future catastrophes, and to generate catastrophes of its own, including a shift into even more damaging technologies, such as biofuels and petrol made from coal. Even so, peak oil was a powerful lever. Governments, businesses and voters who seemed impervious to the moral case for cutting the use of fossil fuels might, we hoped, respond to the economic case.

Some of us made vague predictions, others were more specific. In all cases we were wrong. In 1975 MK Hubbert [originator of the “technocracy” theory], a geoscientist working for Shell who had correctly [foretold] predicted the [orchestrated] decline in US oil production, suggested that global supplies could peak in 1995. In 1997 the petroleum geologist Colin Campbell estimated that it would happen before 2010. In 2003 the geophysicist Kenneth Deffeyes said he was “99% confident” that peak oil would occur in 2004. In 2004, the Texas tycoon T Boone Pickens predicted that “never again will we pump more than 82m barrels” per day of liquid fuels. (Average daily supply in May 2012 was 91m.) In 2005 the investment banker Matthew Simmons maintained that “Saudi Arabia … cannot materially grow its oil production”. (Since then its output has risen from 9m barrels a day to 10m, and it has another 1.5m in spare capacity.)

Peak oil hasn’t happened, and it’s unlikely to happen for a very long time.

Anatomy of a Massive Con Job!

[Editor comments: Mr Wolf does an excellent job explaining how this ‘environmental crisis machine’ was constructed. For those who think it wouldn’t be possible to buy off all so many players, follow the money!]

Con #1: LIMITS TO GROWTH

“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.” —George Orwell

If you look with your understanding, the crimes against humanity are written across the rotting visages of Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski. Like a couple of aging prostitutes, these leading architects of twentieth-century evil still sell their wares to those with an insatiable lust for the power of the crown.

who controls the energy can control whole continents;
who controls money can control the world.”

THE CLUB OF ROME

Birth Mother of the Environmental Movement

The moldy twosome have something else in common. Both have been active members of an international think tank from the dark side of the force called the Club of Rome. Founded at the Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy, in 1968, some of the other fraternity brothers and sisters include Al Gore, David Rockefeller, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and Mikhail Gorbachev.

And there is no one better to give you the short version of the Club’s agenda than Gorby himself:

“The threat of environmental crisis will be the ‘internal disaster key’ that will unlock the New World Order.”

Who let this guy out of Lubyanka?

Their more precisely stated goal is population control. The solution? Create an environmental catastrophe like, oh, say, “global warming” and blame it on the planet’s most heinous villain—man himself.

But I should let them tell it:

“In searching for the new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. . . . But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for cause. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changing attitudes and behaviors that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”

Sounds like a good plan . . . if you’re Darth Vader.

In 1972, the Club took the world stage with the publication of a book they had commissioned to be written by a group of MIT scientists. It was called The Limits to Growth. Examining the planet’s population growth in relation to available resources, the report concluded that the planet would run out of resources sometime in the next 100 years, resulting in a catastrophic decline in population and industrial production.

As one reviewer put it, the authors examine

“. . . the impact of humanity on the world ecology and of steps taken toward remediating the accelerating approach to a train wreck that is mankind’s ill-managed and uncontrolled ‘footprint’ on this planet’s environment.”

Still, these trends and their consequences could be altered, it argued; we had to be less, do less and have less. The brand for this Orwellian path to planetary salvation was sustainable development.

Heavily promoted, the book reached opinion leaders in political, scientific and economic circles as it exploded around the planet like the Harry Potter of environmentalism. It sold 12 million copies in thirty languages despite the fact that the research had all the scientific rigor of a plagiarized term paper for a freshman biology class.

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.” —Mohandas Gandhi

Assailed by top scientists, the research was shoddy in the extreme. Population expert and author Professor Julian Simon said, “The Limits to Growth has been blasted as foolishness or fraud by almost every economist who has read it closely or reviewed it in print.

Yale economist Henry Wallich reviewed the book saying, “. . . the quantitative content of the model comes from the authors’ imagination, although they never reveal the equations that they used.”

The Energy Myths: Peak Oil and Global Warming

BY A FORMER PROMOTER OF BOTH THEORIES

As a culture we are literally drowning in ‘bogus’ bought-and-paid-for corporate ‘science’. This has been ongoing for a long time. Professors, researchers, physicians, dentists and many other professionals have literally been drummed out of their professions for violating unwritten codes of scientific censorship.

Both “oil is a fossil fuel” and “man-made global warming” fall into the category of protected bogus (“tobacco”) science.

However, it cannot be said that the extraction, processing and burning of coal and petroleum products does not pollute the environment. They are both unquestionably responsible for producing serious pollution. But, both peak oil (carbon tax) and global warming (cap and trade) are about energy and control of populations and resources.

The globalist Henry Kissinger, a member of the Club of Rome (that Rockefeller money started), stated the following: “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.”

Peak oil and global warming: Plan A and Plan B

” . . . ENERGY IS THE GOVERNOR THROUGH WHICH THEY ESSENTIALLY CONTROL THE WORLD ECONOMY.”

Below are important excerpts from an interview with author/researcher Wm Engdahl. [1] Mr. Engdahl has looked much closer at the source of oil, the oil cartel and Wall Street shenanigans than most. The price of oil is anything but simple. It is influenced by many factors that have nothing to do with supply and demand. And the folks who wish to control global energy supplies (the globalists) are a lot more devious than most think they are. These ‘folks’ of course have acquired lots and lots of wealth to help them achieve their goals. They are not investing heavily in wind and solar – so we could end our oil dependency and mitigate ‘global warming’ – but are pursuing carbon taxes and cap and trade instead. Once you pay for your solar panels, the solar energy you produce can’t be taxed at all! You would actually get ‘free energy’ from the sun. JP Morgan turned down the ‘free energy’ idea when he withdrew support for Tesla. Nothing has changed since then. To control the world economy and insure their own hegemony, the globalists understand they must control energy as well.

A History of Rigged and Fraudulent Oil Prices

Excerpts from Lars Schall interview with William Engdahl [1]

F. William Engdahl

Mr. Engdahl, one critical topic of our time is the subject of Peak Oil. You are saying that Peak Oil is a myth. How did you come to that conclusion?

FWE:
I went through an evolution in my thinking. During the Iraq War in 2003, I simply couldn’t comprehend why a U.S. Administration would risk relations with its closest European allies or allies all around the world, violating all pretexts of international law and UN rules and procedures to unilaterally declare war on Iraq (well, there was Tony Blair, but I think he was there because BP told him they had to have a chunk of the Iraqi oil after the invasion). And at that time I came across various arguments about the peaking of oil. I’ve said: “Aha, if this is the case, then that might be the answer, that the U.S. wants to make sure that they preemptively control that oil for the future.”
