How Energy Transition Models Go Wrong

I have written many posts relating to the fact that we live in a finite world. At some point, our ability to extract resources becomes constrained. At the same time, population keeps increasing. The usual outcome when population is too high for resources is “overshoot and collapse.” But this is not a topic that the politicians or central bankers or oligarchs who attend the World Economic Forum dare to talk about.

Instead, world leaders find a different problem, namely climate change, to emphasize above other problems. Conveniently, climate change seems to have some of the same solutions as “running out of fossil fuels.” So, a person might think that an energy transition designed to try to fix climate change would work equally well to try to fix running out of fossil fuels. Unfortunately, this isn’t really the way it works.

In this post, I will lay out some of the issues involved.

[1] There are many different constraints that new energy sources need to conform to.

These are a few of the constraints I see:

  • Should be inexpensive to produce
  • Should work with the current portfolio of existing devices
  • Should be available in the quantities required, in the timeframe needed
  • Should not pollute the environment, either when created or at the end of their lifetimes
  • Should not add CO2 to the atmosphere
  • Should not distort ecosystems
  • Should be easily stored, or should be easily ramped up and down to precisely match energy timing needs
  • Cannot overuse fresh water or scarce minerals
  • Cannot require a new infrastructure of its own, unless the huge cost in terms of delayed timing and greater materials use is considered.

If an energy type is simply a small add-on to the existing system, perhaps a little deviation from the above list can be tolerated, but if there is any intent of scaling up the new energy type, all of these requirements must be met.

It is really the overall cost of the system that is important. Historically, the use of coal has helped keep the overall cost of the system down. Substitutes need to be developed considering the overall needs and cost of the system.

The reason why the overall cost of the system is important is because countries with high-cost energy systems will have a difficult time competing in a world market since energy costs are an important part of the cost of producing goods and services. For example, the cost of operating a cruise ship depends, to a significant extent, on the cost of the fuel it uses.

In theory, energy types that work with different devices (say, electric cars and trucks instead of those operated by internal combustion engines) can be used, but a long delay can be expected before a material shift in overall energy usage occurs. Furthermore, a huge ramp up in the total use of materials for production may be required. The system cannot work if the total cost is too high, or if the materials are not really available, or if the timing is too slow.

[2] The major thing that makes an economy grow is an ever increasing supply of inexpensive-to-produce energy products.

Food is an energy product. Let’s think of what happens when agriculture is mechanized, typically using devices that are made and operated using coal and oil. The cost of producing food drops substantially. Instead of spending, for example, 50% of a person’s wages on food, the percentage can gradually drop down to 20% of wages, and then to 10% of wages for food, and eventually even, say, to 2% of wages for food.

As spending on food falls, opportunity for other spending arises, even with wages remaining relatively level. With lower food expenditures, a person can spend more on books (made with energy products), or personal transportation (such as a vehicle), or entertainment (also made possible by energy products). Strangely enough, in order for an economy to grow, essential items need to become an ever decreasing share of everyone’s budget, so that citizens have sufficient left-over income available for more optional items.

It is the use of tools, made and operated with inexpensive energy products of the right types, that leverages human labor so that workers can produce more food in a given period of time. This same approach also makes many other goods and services available.

In general, the less expensive an energy product is, the more helpful it will be to an economy. A country operating with an inexpensive mix of energy products will tend to be more competitive in the world market than one with a high-cost mix of energy products. Oil tends to be expensive; coal tends to be inexpensive. This is a major reason why, in recent years, countries using a lot of coal in their energy mix (such as China and India) have been able to grow their economies much more rapidly than those countries relying heavily on oil in their energy mixes.

[3] If energy products are becoming more expensive to produce, or their production is not growing very rapidly, there are temporary workarounds that can hide this problem for quite a number of years.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s, world coal and oil consumption were growing rapidly. Natural gas, hydroelectric and (a little) nuclear were added, as well. Cost of production remained low. For example, the price of oil, converted to today’s dollar value, was less than $20 per barrel.

Once the idyllic 1950s and 1960s passed, it was necessary to hide the problems associated with the rising cost of production using several approaches:

  • Increasing use of debt – really a promise of future goods and services made with energy
  • Lower interest rates – permits increasing debt to be less of a financial burden
  • Increasing use of technology – to improve efficiency in energy usage
  • Growing use of globalization – to make use of other countries’ cheaper energy mix and lower cost of labor

After 50+ years, we seem to be reaching limits with respect to all of these techniques:

  • Debt levels are excessive
  • Interest rates are very low, even below zero
  • Increasing use of technology as well as globalization have led to greater and greater wage disparity; many low level jobs have been eliminated completely
  • Globalization has reached its limits; China has reached a situation in which its coal supply is no longer growing

[4] The issue that most people fail to grasp is the fact that with depletion, the cost of producing energy products tends to rise, but the selling prices of these energy products do not rise enough to keep up with the rising cost of depletion.

As a result, production of energy products tends to fall because production becomes unprofitable.

As we get further and further away from the ideal situation (oil less than $20 per barrel and rising in quantity each year), an increasing number of problems crop up:

  • Both oil/gas companies and coal companies become less profitable.
  • With lower energy company profits, governments can collect less taxes from these companies.
  • As old wells and mines deplete, the cost of reinvestment becomes more of a burden. Eventually, new investment is cut back to the point that production begins to fall.
  • With less growth in energy consumption, productivity growth tends to lag. This happens because energy is required to mechanize or computerize processes.
  • Wage disparity tends to grow; workers become increasingly unhappy with their governments.

[5] Authorities with an incorrect understanding of why and how energy supplies fall have assumed that far more fossil fuels would be available than is actually the case. They have also assumed that relatively high prices for alternatives would be acceptable.

In 2012, Jorgen Randers prepared a forecast for the next 40 years for The Club of Rome, in the form of a book, 2052, with associated data. Looking at the data, we see that Randers forecast that world coal consumption would grow by 28% between 2010 and 2020. In fact, world coal consumption grew by 0% in that period. (This latter forecast is based on BP coal consumption estimates for 2010 and 2019 from BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy 2020, adjusted for the 2019 to 2020 period change using IEA’s estimate from its Global Energy Review 2021.)

It is very easy to assume that high estimates of coal resources in the ground will lead to high quantities of actual coal extracted and burned. The world’s experience between 2010 and 2020 shows that it doesn’t necessarily work out that way in practice. In order for coal consumption to grow, the delivered price of coal needs to stay low enough for customers to be able to afford its use in the end products it provides. Much of the supposed coal that is available is far from population centers. Some of it is even under the North Sea. The extraction and delivery costs become far too high, but this is not taken into account in resource estimates.

Forecasts of future natural gas availability suffer from the same tendency towards over-estimation. Randers estimated that world gas consumption would grow by 40% between 2010 and 2020, when the actual increase was 22%. Other authorities make similar overestimates of future fuel use, assuming that “of course,” prices will stay high enough to enable extraction. Most energy consumption is well-buried in goods and services we buy, such as the cost of a vehicle or the cost of heating a home. If we cannot afford the vehicle, we don’t buy it; if the cost of heating a family’s home rises too high, thrifty families will turn down the thermostat.

Oil prices, even with the recent run-up in prices, are under $75 per barrel. I have estimated that for profitable oil production (including adequate funds for high-cost reinvestment and sufficient taxes for governments), oil prices need to be over $120 per barrel. It is the lack of profitability that has caused the recent drop in production. These profitability problems can be expected to lead to more production declines in the future.

With this low-price problem, fossil fuel estimates used in climate model scenarios are almost certainly overstated. This bias would be expected to lead to overstated estimates of future climate change.

The misbelief that energy prices will always rise to cover higher costs of production also leads to the belief that relatively high-cost alternatives to fossil fuels would be acceptable.

[6] Our need for additional energy supplies of the right kinds is extremely high right now. We cannot wait for a long transition. Even 30 years is too long.

We saw in section [3] that the workarounds for a lack of growing energy supply, such as higher debt and lower interest rates, are reaching limits. Furthermore, prices have been unacceptably low for oil producers for several years. Not too surprisingly, oil production has started to decline:

Figure 1 – World production of crude oil and condensate, based on data of the US Energy Information Administration

What is really needed is sufficient energy of the right types for the world’s growing population. Thus, it is important to look at energy consumption on a per capita basis. Figure 2 shows energy production per capita for three groupings:

  • Tier 1: Oil and Coal
  • Tier 2: Natural Gas, Nuclear, and Hydroelectric
  • Tier 3: Other Renewables, including Intermittent Wind and Solar
Figure 2 World per capita energy consumption by Tier. Amounts through 2019 based on BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2020. Changes for 2020 based on estimates provided by IEA Global Energy Review 2021.

Figure 2 shows that the biggest drop is in Tier 1: Coal and Oil. In many ways, coal and oil are foundational types of energy for the economy because they are relatively easy to transport and store. Oil is important because it is used in operating agricultural machinery, road repair machinery, and vehicles of all types, including ships and airplanes. Coal is important partly because of its low cost, helping paychecks to stretch further for finished goods and services. Coal is used in many ways, including electricity production and making steel and concrete. We use coal and oil to keep electricity transmission lines repaired.

Figure 2 shows that Tier 2 energy consumption per capita was growing rapidly in the 1965 to 1990 period, but its growth has slowed in recent years.

The Green Energy sources in Tier 3 have been growing rapidly from a low base, but their output is still tiny compared to the overall output that would be required if they were to substitute for energy from both Tier 1 and Tier 2 sources. They clearly cannot by themselves power today’s economy.

It is very difficult to imagine any of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 energy sources being able to grow without substantial assistance from coal and oil. All of today’s Tier 2 and Tier 3 energy sources depend on coal and oil at many points in the chain of their production, distribution, operation, and eventual recycling. If we ever get to Tier 4 energy sources (such as fusion or space solar), I would expect that they too will need oil and/or coal in their production, transport and distribution, unless there is an incredibly long transition, and a huge change in energy infrastructure.

[7] It is easy for energy researchers to set their sights too low.

[a] We need to be looking at the extremely low energy cost structure of the 1950s and 1960s as a model, not some far higher cost structure.

We have been hiding the world’s energy problems for years behind rising debt and falling interest rates. With very high debt levels and very low interest rates, it is becoming less feasible to stimulate the economy using these approaches. We really need very inexpensive energy products. These energy products need to provide a full range of services required by the economy, not simply intermittent electricity.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s, the ratio of Energy Earned to Energy Investment was likely in the 50:1 range for many energy products. Energy products were very profitable; they could be highly taxed. The alternative energy products we develop today need to have similar characteristics if they truly are to play an important role in the economy.

[b] A recent study says that greenhouse gas emissions related to the food system account for one-third of the anthropogenic global warming gas total. A way to grow sufficient food is clearly needed.

We clearly cannot grow food using intermittent electricity. Farming is not an easily electrified endeavor. If we do not have an alternative, the coal and oil that we are using now in agriculture really needs to continue, even if it requires subsidies.

[c] Hydroelectric electricity looks like a good energy source, but in practice it has many deficiencies.

Some of the hydroelectric dams now in place are over 100 years old. This is nearing the lifetime of the concrete in the dams. Considerable maintenance and repair (indirectly using coal and oil) are likely to be needed if these dams are to continue to be used.

The water available to provide hydroelectric power tends to vary greatly over time. Figure 3 shows California’s hydro electricity generation by month.

Figure 3. California hydroelectric energy production by month, based on data of the US Energy Information Administration.

Thus, as a practical matter, hydroelectric energy needs to be balanced with fossil fuels to provide energy which can be used to power a factory or heat a home in winter. Battery storage would never be sufficient. There are too many gaps, lasting months at a time.

If hydroelectric energy is used in a tropical area with dry and wet seasons, the result would be even more extreme. A poor country with a new hydroelectric power plant may find the output of the plant difficult to use. The electricity can only be used for very optional activities, such as bitcoin mining, or charging up small batteries for lights and phones.

Any new hydroelectric dam runs the risk of taking away the water someone else was depending upon for irrigation or for their own electricity generation. A war could result.

[d] Current approaches for preventing deforestation mostly seem to be shifting deforestation from high income countries to low income countries. In total, deforestation is getting worse rather than better.

Figure 4. Forest area percentage of land area, by income group, based on data of the World Bank.

Figure 4 shows that deforestation is getting rapidly worse in Low Income countries with today’s policies. There is also a less pronounced trend toward deforestation in Middle Income countries. It is only in High Income countries that land areas are becoming more forested. In total (not shown), the forested area for the world as a whole falls, year after year.

Also, even when replanting is done, the new forests do not have the same characteristics as those made by natural ecosystems. They cannot house as many different species as natural ecosystems. They are likely to be less resistant to problems like insect infestations and forest fires. They are not true substitutes for the forest ecosystems that nature creates.

[e] The way intermittent wind and solar have been added to the electric grid vastly overpays these providers, relative to the value they add to the system. Furthermore, the subsidies for intermittent renewables tend to drive out more stable producers, degrading the overall condition of the grid.

If wind and solar are to be used, payments for the electricity they provide need to be scaled back to reflect the true value that they add to the overall system. In general, this corresponds to the savings in fossil fuel purchases that electricity providers need to make. This will be a small amount, perhaps 2 cents per kilowatt hour. Even this small amount, in theory, might be reduced to reflect the greater electricity transmission costs associated with these intermittent sources.

We note that China is making a major step in the direction of reducing subsidies for wind and solar. It has already dramatically cut its subsidies for wind energy; new subsidy cuts for solar energy will become effective August 1, 2021.

A major concern is the distorting impact that current pricing approaches for wind and solar have on the overall electrical system. Often, these approaches produce very low, or negative, wholesale prices for other providers. Nuclear providers are especially harmed by such practices. Nuclear is, of course, a low CO2 electricity provider.

It seems to me that in each part of the world, some utility-type provider needs to be analyzing what the overall funding of the electrical system needs to be. Bills to individuals and businesses need to reflect these actual expected costs. This approach might avoid the artificially low rates that the current pricing system often generates. If adequate funding can be achieved, perhaps some of the corner cutting that leads to electrical outages, such as recently encountered in California and Texas, might be avoided.

[8] When I look at the requirements for a successful energy transition and the obstacles we are up against, it is hard for me to see that any of the current approaches can be successful.

Unfortunately, it is hard for me to see how intermittent electricity can save the world economy, or even make a dent in our problems. We have searched for a very long time, but haven’t yet found solutions truly worth ramping up. Perhaps a new “Tier 4 approach” might be helpful, but such solutions seem likely to come too late.

About Gail Tverberg

My name is Gail Tverberg. I am an actuary interested in finite world issues - oil depletion, natural gas depletion, water shortages, and climate change. Oil limits look very different from what most expect, with high prices leading to recession, and low prices leading to financial problems for oil producers and for oil exporting countries. We are really dealing with a physics problem that affects many parts of the economy at once, including wages and the financial system. I try to look at the overall problem.

    Is Gail ready for disinflation? I don’t think so!

    What could possibly cause or be a symptom of disinflation.

    1) No More Stimmies
    2) Federal Unemployment Insurance running out
    3) Expiration of Rent Moratorium
    4) Expiration of Mortgage Forbearance
    5) Student Loan payments restarting.
    6) Tons of Cash in banking system with no where to go except overnight repos.
    7) Mortgage applications declining.

    Just to name a few.

    And with the Fed purchasing 120 Billion in bond every month, where else can interest rates go. Besides, if rates rise the whole house of cards will come down.

    Alessio Rastani, in this eight-minute YouTube video:

    In the clip, Alessio claims that the Bawnd Vigilanties are piling into paper IOUs, which means that they are anticipating imminent economic collapse.

    The market that knows ALL sends a big warning (not what everyone thinks). Could we be heading towards a major economic recession or depression in the very near future? And if so, are there any indications or clues to this right now? We look at the market that “knows all” to give us some information. Also, it seems that everyone right now believes that we are heading towards inflation. Most economists and market commentators seem to think that “hyperinflation” is now the biggest threat facing us today. But could they be wrong? What if it is deflation that is a bigger threat?

    Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are gearing up to release their respective mRNA (messenger RNA) “vaccines” into the Australian market, though under different names.

    Pfizer-BioNTech is calling its Down Under jab “Comirnaty” while Moderna is going with “Spikevax,” which is fitting considering it turns the human body into a spike protein factory.

    The name changes are presumably intended to try to hide the dark underbelly of these shots, which are linked to disease and death.

    Looks to me like Biden/DeepState is using UAE to kill OPEC

    Trump used KSA and they figured it out but now UAE is being the fly in the ointment. They have a lot of US support and are the last holdout of US support in the region after KSA which clearly turned after Trump left.

    We are getting close to a big war in the Middle East I think.

    The current WTI at 75 isn’t just resistance, it seems to be a level that DS doesn’t want oil above as oil has been attacked every time it gets up here.

    Right now there isn’t overproduction and there isn’t the vaunted spare capacity people think. The demand side of the equation is running the show right now and people are sucking down the inventory even at these “high” prices.

    • D. Stevens says:

      Time for another lock down to cut oil demand or can it wait until the autumn season? I wonder if increasing interest rates would crush oil demand. Why would the DS want to keep the price low, a higher price would help the unconventional oil producers unless that needs to be kept in reserve for later use? I always thought it made sense to import oil with printed dollars then when that oil supply ran low reset the currency and use the domestic/friendly sources last.

      • StarvingLion says:

        Which puts OPEC in the spot to either let the price run and encourage EVs and frackers or open the spigot and kill the profit. They want to open up but UAE wants to pump more than KSA.

        U.S. shale firms hesitate to pump – or hedge – more, despite oil high prices
        Posted On : 7 Jul 2021 Published By : Tom Whipple
        OPEC’s sudden disarray would seem to be an opportunity for U.S. shale producers to lock in profits, with oil prices near multi-year-highs, but sources at those companies say they are not taking chances with the market’s volatility. Shale producers are famous for boosting output whenever oil prices surge. However, the shale industry has been notably restrained so far this year even as oil surged past $70 a barrel. They have maintained a lower level of production after vowing to investors that they would hold the line on spending to boost returns. Oil prices , are above $73 a barrel, near three-year-highs.

        • Fast Eddy says:

          It’s difficult to pump more … when you’ve done this to your plays:

          He said operators had carried out “massive fracks” that created “artificial, permanent porosity”, inadvertently reducing the pressure in reservoirs and therefore the available oil. The comments will cause alarm in the shale patch, given the crucial role of investors such as QEP in financing the onshore American oil business.

    Robinhood IPO Details

    Robinhood Markets Inc., is an online brokerage company with a stock trading and investing app aimed at younger retail investors. The company, an early adopter of zero-commission trades, filed for an initial public offering (IPO), submitting an S-1 registration form to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on July 1, 2021.1 Robinhood previously filed a confidential IPO on March 23, 2021.2

    A confidential IPO allows a company to submit an initial draft of its S-1 to the SEC, which only needs to be made public 15 days before any promotional roadshow or, if there’s no roadshow, 15 days before the IPO.3 The advantage of filing confidentially is that the company has more control over its IPO date and can make changes to its IPO filing without needing to manage public relations.

    Robinhood did not disclose the expected date, price range, share count, and total valuation of its IPO in its confidential IPO filing nor in its recent S-1 submission. The company’s class A common stock will be listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the ticker symbol “HOOD”

    The delta variant is sending the world a warning

    Don’t panic, but recent news makes it clear that the novel coronavirus isn’t done with us yet. It’s finding ways to become even more novel, and more deadly.

    New data from Israel suggest the effectiveness of Pfizer-BioNTech’s mRNA vaccine declines sharply when it’s pitted against the hyperinfectious delta variant. Last week, more than half of all covid-19 cases in Israel reportedly occurred in people who were vaccinated; the vaccine appears to prevent only about two-thirds of symptomatic cases, compared with preventing almost 100 percent among older variants.

    For many who are vaccine hesitant, the thought process goes something like: “The vaccines are new, and we haven’t had a chance to see all the side effects, and besides, covid-19 isn’t that bad unless you’re old, so I’m better off taking my chances on getting the disease than jabbing that stuff into my arm.”

    That’s perfectly understandable, particularly if you’ve already had covid-19. The problem is that with the delta variant, the odds of contracting covid-19 have gone up. Your odds of getting very sick if you do get covid may have gone up too. And those odds may be elevated even if you’ve already had covid.

    Delta is clearly much more infectious than the variants that powered earlier waves — about 50 percent more than the alpha variant that first appeared in Britain, which was itself up to 50 percent more transmissible than the virus that first spread worldwide in spring of 2020. So if there is an outbreak in your area, you are more likely to catch it. One transmission in Australia, seemingly caught on CCTV, may have occurred when two people passed each other in a shopping mall.

    The delta variant may also make people sicker when they do catch it, though it can be hard to distinguish the effects of a virus that is making people sicker from those of a virus that is just making more people sick. And then, of course, there’s the Israeli data suggesting that the delta variant is somewhat better at infecting people who’ve been vaccinated.

    Vaccination with the Pfizer mRNA vaccine seems to be at least as effective at preventing disease as the natural immunity acquired by surviving covid-19. It may even be better, particularly for people who had a mild case of covid-19. So if the virus is getting better at evading vaccine-acquired immunity, we also have to worry that it is getting better at reinfecting people who already had covid-19.

    So this isn’t a decision you’re making just for yourself. It’s a decision you’re making for other people too. Are you going to hope for the best while covid-19 spreads? Or are you going to do everything in your power to defeat our common enemy?

    And while the vaccinated may be nodding along at this plea to the hesitant, that’s not a question merely for them. It’s something we all need to demand of ourselves.

    Even if you and everyone you know are vaccinated, there are still billions of people in the world who aren’t. Have you investigated what charities are on the job, and given generously? Have you called your legislators and told them you want the United States to fund vaccine production and distribution for countries that can’t afford it themselves? We are all in this together, and none of us will be safe until everyone is, everywhere.

      Yes that newspaper says that, but official data shows that 60% of dead people from Covid-19 in UK had been vaccinated and official data shows also that number-one-vaccine (Pfizer) is 30% less powerful with Delta variant in Israel.
      Those phrases in the article look also a desperate attempt to convince additional persons to take the jab now that people are showing, almost everywhere, less interest to do it.

    My my, support for Welsh independence has hit 40%. This was almost unimaginable just a few years ago. England could end up entirely independent at this rate.

    Henry VIII passed a law to make Wales a part of England in 1536, after the crown ‘annexed’ Wales in 1284. Obviously there was no democratic mandate back in those days.

    > Highest ever support for Welsh independence, new poll shows

    Nearly 40% of people in Wales are in favour of independence, survey suggests

    Record-breaking numbers of people in Wales are in favour of independence, a new poll suggests.

    Conducted for ITV News Tonight by Savanta ComRes, the new survey found just under 40 per cent of Welsh citizens to be in favour of separating from the UK, representing the highest levels of support for Welsh independence ever recorded.

    With 39 per cent of participants favouring independence, with the exclusion of “don’t know” answers, the poll found that one in three residents would support a referendum on the issue in the next 10 years.

    With the Welsh having voted Leave, Brexit is unlikely to be a driving factor. A host of other push factors, however, have been named, including the rise of young voters who have grown up under devolution, a deepening sense of Welsh identity and the coronavirus pandemic.

    • Harry McGibbs says:

      The economic case for Welsh independence is so flimsy it actually makes Scotland’s look good by comparison.

      • Mirror on the wall says:

        That will be for the Welsh to decide.

        Presumably Welsh independence would not effect you personally in any way.

        • Harry McGibbs says:

          That is hard to say. There is certainly a chance any significant chunk of the UK devolving could wreak havoc on the £ + related financial markets and our national borrowing costs, which would be bad news for all involved.

          The financial system does not have much remaining elasticity for absorbing shocks.

          • Mirror on the wall says:

            Do you have a source for that? I cannot recall anyone ever arguing that.

            I would not worry about it too much. In 10 years, it will be the last thing on your mind?

            • Harry McGibbs says:

              The UK leaving the EU took a chunk out of sterling’s value. The situation would have been worse, of course, if there had been no-deal:

              “Since the Brexit vote in 2016, the exchange rate of the pound against other leading currencies has fallen significantly. This seems to reflect a generally negative outlook among international investors for the UK’s economic prospects outside the European Union.”


              I don’t think it is a stretch to suggest that the break-up of the UK itself, particularly if acrimonious and chaotic, could cause a run on the £.

              I agree that if these devolutions take a decade to occur other events will probably overtake us and we will have bigger haddie to fry. If they are more imminent then they themselves risk being dangerous catalysts.

            • Mirror on the wall says:

              EU exports were a much bigger part of England’s GDP. I doubt that the loss of Wales would have much effect on the pound. A devalued pound can be good for exports, any way, it is a two-edged sword.

              Britain will experience the big collapse when the rest of the world does, and I doubt that Welsh or Scottish independence is going to make much difference to the big picture. UK has 2.25% of global GDP, and that is falling rapidly – 2.51% in 2016.

            • Harry McGibbs says:

              Really? You don’t think that the actual break-up of the sovereign state to which a currency belongs would have much effect on the currency?

              Currency speculation is about perception and predatory opportunism (as when Soros took advantage of a geopolitical spat to “break” the £ in 1992), as much as it is about economic reality.

              And while a somewhat weaker £ might carry some benefits, sharp plunges or a significant erosion in value would not and especially not in a post covid world when we are close to debt-saturated.

              “…the proportion of UK government gilts owned by foreign investors had risen from 10% in the late 1980s to around 30% today. This puts the UK at greater risk of a change of mood among those investors…

              “The other factor the OBR highlights is the increased sensitivity of UK government borrowing to higher interest rates.”


            • Mirror on the wall says:

              Well, I asked you for a source in the first place and you fell back on analogy and now on assertion. One would think that there were many such papers during the 2014 referendum were it much of a concern.

              All such matters can be collectively disputed with better data once the campaigns begin.

              I think that you worry too much about things.

          • Harry McGibbs says:

            “…analysts reckon the chance of Scotland breaking away, while still small, is rising, and the pound will react if and when a referendum looks like a certainty.

            “If a country accounting for 7.5% of the UK’s GDP decides to go its own way, it matters for the market,” Nomura foreign exchange analyst Jordan Rochester said.”


            • Harry McGibbs says:

              “‘Worse Than Brexit’: Scottish Independence Weighs on U.K. Assets…

              “As Scots enter a May 6 vote pitched on whether there should be a second independence referendum, fund managers and sell-side strategists see potential for massive chaos across the U.K.’s economic landscape in the years to come. Yet in an echo of the early days of the Brexit poll, few are hedging for this disruptive prospect.”


            • Mirror on the wall says:

              As I say, I think that you worry about things too much. There is bound to be different opinions on matters. Fearmongering never stopped Brexit, which did not turn out to be as totally catastrophic as many were making out – and I doubt that it will stop anyone else. Support for Scottish independence surged during the 2014 campaign, as did support for Brexit in 2016, regardless of such warnings – and they made no difference in May. You will be fine, do not worry.

            • Harry McGibbs says:

      Nearly 40% of people in Wales are in favour of independence, survey suggests.

      On the other hand, over 60% of people in Wales are not in favour of independence, the same survey indicates.

      If Wales were to leave the UK, would it become a republic or would it opt for crown colony status like the Isle of Man? And more importantly, would it field its own Olympic team? Inquiring minds want to know.

      • Mirror on the wall says:

        Those are good questions.

        Recent polls show support for republicanism surging across the UK, and especially outside of England. The younger generations already support it. The real question will be what happens when Charles dons his mum’s tiara. He is far less popular.

        Long-standing primates can be popular, but support for the institution can fall drastically once they pass, as happened with John Paul II in RCC. The next pope was forced to retire, and this new one still has falling popularity.

        The day may soon come when both independence and republicanism have clear majorities, and then they are liable to feed off each other. That does seem to be the trajectory that we are on.

        The queen has likely propped up unionism to some extent but she is time dated. Charles, Harry, Megs, uncle Eddie – none of them bode well for the institution. And some dozen territories still have the monarch without any union, so they do not necessarily go together.

        • Tim Groves says:

          Uncle Andy doesn’t exactly shine either. If he wasn’t part of the institution, he’d probably be institionalized by now. I’m not surprised the Royal Family is waning in popularity.

      Wales came solely under the English crown in response to a formal plea from the people of Wales who wished to be relieved of the tyranny of the petty feudal lords, who ran corrupt courts established in the earlier Middle Ages.

      In essence, they wanted Royal justice, just like England, which seemed superior to them.

      So, it wasn’t done by force.

      The letter they wrote to Henry 8th reminded him that he had Welsh blood, had helped put his father on the throne, and that they were an ancient and brave race, deserving of his help.

      I feel sorry or the Welsh, capitalist industrialism later raped them for their resources, like just as it does across the world today, and then they were dropped.

    Urgent Announcement: COVID-19 is caused by Graphene Oxide introduced by several ways into the body

    Today, La Quinta Columna has made an urgent announcement that they hope will reach as many people as possible, especially those involved in health and legal services, as biostatistician Ricardo Delgado, Dr. José Luis Sevillano and the team of researchers and professors with whom they have been conducting their research have confirmed the presence of graphene oxide nanoparticles in vaccination vials.


    The masks being used and currently marketed contain graphene oxide. Not only the ones that were withdrawn at the time, as indicated by the media, the swabs used in both PCR and antigen tests also contain graphene oxide nanoparticles.

    The COVID vaccines in all their variants, AstraZeca, Pfizer, Moderna, Sinovac, Janssen, Johnson & Johnson, etc., also contain a considerable dose of graphene oxide nanoparticles. This has been the result of their analysis by electron microscopy and spectroscopy, among other techniques used by various public universities in our country.

    The anti-flu vaccine contained nanoparticles of graphene oxide and the new anti-flu vaccines and the new and supposedly intranasal anti-COVID vaccines they are preparing also contain enormous doses of graphene oxide nanoparticles. Graphene oxide is a toxic that generates thrombi in the organism, graphene oxide is a toxic that generates blood coagulation. Graphene oxide causes alteration of the immune system. By decompensating the oxidative balance in relation to the gulation reserves. If the dose of graphene oxide is increased by any route of administration, it causes the collapse of the immune system and subsequent cytokine storm.

    Graphene oxide accumulated in the lungs generates bilateral pneumonias by uniform dissemination in the pulmonary alveolar tract. Graphene oxide causes a metallic taste. Perhaps this is starting to make sense to you now. Inhaled graphene oxide causes inflammation of the mucous membranes and thus loss of taste and partial or total loss of smell.

    Graphene oxide acquires powerful magnetic properties inside the organism. This is the explanation for the magnetic phenomenon that billions of people around the world have already experienced after various routes of administration of graphene oxide. Among them the vaccine.

    In short, graphene oxide is the supposed SARS-CoV-2, the supposed new coronvirus provoked before the disease called COVID-19. Therefore, we never had real isolation and purification of a new coronvirus, as recognized by most health institutions at the highest level and in different countries when they were questioned about it. COVID-19 disease is the result of introducing graphene oxide by various routes of administration.

          What you said about micro-particle (?) in masks will keep me from supporting them so heartily. I hope that some fairly benign fabrics could be alternatives. I’m trying to see how we strategically don’t alienate anti-vaxxers who wear masks..and also to weaken the argument that we need to be controlled for the public good; we can demonstrate that we can control ourselves. There should be people in every community who know how to make “show” masks that are non polluting (if that is possible). But then we’re stuck with so many things needing to be done, that are able to be done, and that no one will lift a finger to do.

          • Artleads says:

            So many going maskless plays into the narrative that the crisis is over (or nearly over). Everybody here knows that’s not true. So people are going maskless, and “free.” And then what?

      • Mike Roberts says:

        I don’t know about insane but it is, for me, clearly rubbish as the virus was spreading before mask use, before vaccines and among people who hadn’t had the flu vaccine, in a season not normally associated with flu vaccination. I think Norman suggested not looking for stories in which to believe. That’s good advice.

    • Tim Groves says:

      The translator mispelled AstraZeneca, and Janssen and Johnson & Johnson are the same jab.

      The article goes on to talk about how graphene oxide has been building up in the bodies of people who wear masks and take the jabs, that it is “a chemical toxicant” that can produce the symptoms of Covid-19 with no need for a virus or a spike protein, that it will kill large numbers of people when G5 is switched on, but that it can be countered by the action of the green kryptonite of glutathione, a natural antioxidant present in large concentrations in children and younger people, but falling off as we age. Glutathione is a molecule synthesised in the liver from the three amino acids L-cysteine, glycine, and L-glutamate. It can also be ingested as a supplement, and it can be produced in the body given the presence of the essential amino acid N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is a popular supplement taken as an antioxidant

      It would be interesting if supplement junkies who take NAC are protected to any extent from getting seriously attacked by Covid-19, but I haven’t come across any research into that.

      Another question: Is Covid-19 a giant scam being cooked up in a collaboration between big pharma and the supplement industry to enhance the sales of both?

  28. Fast Eddy says:

    When this article written ~ 900 deaths associated with the covid vaccines. Last week used VAERS and excel to plot number of deaths vs onset of death after injection.

    For the covid vaccines we are looking at almost 7000 associated deaths in VAERS over a 6 month period with about 180 million injections (1&2). Roughly a third of the deaths occurred within 2 days. I then compared the same for all the influenza vaccines (about 12).

    That’s less than 2000 deaths over a 30 year period and over 2 Billion doses. Based on the vaccinated populations that’s about 3300 deaths/million for the covid vaccines and about 67 deaths/million for the influenza vaccine. How is that OK when there’s strong evidence now (finally published without being hammered down) that therapeutics are effective defense?

    Trying real hard to find the CDC’s risk-benefit analysis that takes ALL these factors into account and that leads to the conclusion we are still better off getting injected with an experimental vaccine with unknown long term effects. Flabbergasted.

      • Herbie R Ficklestein says:

        When Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann first threatened to sue two conservative bloggers and their publishers for defamation in 2012, they seemed to welcome the opportunity for a face-off in court.

        The Competitive Enterprise Institute, an anti-regulation think tank, and National Review magazine defended their online commentaries in which they attacked Mann’s science and compared him to Jerry Sandusky, the disgraced Penn State assistant football coach convicted of child sexual abuse. “All’s fair in love, war and political campaigns,” Rand Simberg, the CEI blogger, wrote about Mann’s threat, on his personal website. In an editorial, National Review editor Rich Lowry mused about gaining access to Mann’s files if he sued and hiring a “dedicated reporter to comb through” the material and expose Mann’s “methods and maneuverings to the world.”

        That investigative project has never materialized, even though Mann’s side has produced more than 1 million documents in the defamation suit he filed, now entering its ninth year. The material includes emails, correspondence, notes, drafts and discussions with co-authors—including all the background material for his seminal 1998 and 1999 papers charting this century’s dramatic temperature rise, the so-called “Hockey Stick” graph.

      deaths associated with the covid vaccines

      All this means is deaths that were reported and supposedly occurred within a certain period of receiving the vaccine. “Associated with” is a loaded phrase, and intentionally so.

    • There are plenty of hints this is likely no longer the case.
      Notably voiced by Asians and Gulfies, the EUR faction recalls the early 2000s how they were derailed out of larger %share in petrodollar and now decades later with way smaller resource base are bowing in front of the East as well.

      If you take China, speaking parity, they already (over) matched anybody in mil hardware, also pondering the extra bullet train networks, orbital space station, .. And yet somehow all these advances and perhaps vanity projects were supposedly ALSO NOT accompanied by preparing a robust alternative in trade-financial settlement tech infrastructure (and trade pre-negotiated deals)? That’s very hard to believe or logically estimate..

      I’ll grant you we might get temporarily (extra decade or shorter) of some transitional period of further global triage, internal balkanization, where spheres of influence are more sharply lined out, including the int finance & banking corralled into respective regional dominions. And also more countries thrown by the way side as no longer deemed useful on the surplus energy threadmill..

      By each day it seems more plausible that it’s in fact all about ~undeclared surrender at this point. The western standards of opulent living will drop 30-60% in key metrics before 2035, regional oligarchs allowed to take hold and perhaps to keep some “junior” shareholder position at the global table as well IF they behave..

      Obviously, the great paradox remains, despite the above, that it’s probably way better to stay put in some truly rural NA site than pursuing other seemingly better options (Euroasia, Oceania)..

      • qwerty324 says:

        and here , in a truly rural site in an EU country, where our ancestors have been here for thousands of years, we are very seriously contemplating picking up and leaving for a rural site in the US because the EU in general but especially our country they’re ramming the whole Reset package double time. maybe in the third world if you can fit in with the local society, but europe is worse than the states. fewer options, everyone’s disarmed… everything if much further along in being rolled into a grand electronic prison. even a village on the backside of a mountain 100 miles from the mainland.

          pick your location in the US carefully. Texas yes northeast no.

        • I tried to analyse the EU several years ago

          It has been a group of disparate nations brought together by the common delusion of (infinite) prosperity. I said then that the EU was propped up by infinite debt. it still is..

          50 years ago, it seemed a possibility, everything was predicated on a future where infinite resources could be converted into ever-rising wages. Our most revered economic thinkers said it would be so.
          The smallest, poorest nations of Europe hitched their destinies to the richest ones, on the promise that everyone would float upward on the lake of common currency and phone idealisms. Suddenly everyone would love one another.

          It suited politicians to foster this belief. It brought them votes and high office. Proof was all around us.

          I thought it was a good idea. Anything that might halt our European tradition of a war every generation had to be a good idea. 50 years ago I didn’t know enough to figure it out in any other dimension. There are still huge gaps in my knowledge. (confession time!).

          All the old disparities of Europe didn’t go away. They just got subverted by shiny toys. People don’t like the idea of losing their toys, and will blame ‘someone else’ for their loss.

          Extreme ideologies foster such ideas.


          And the same applies to the USA. The United States is an amalgam of old European animosities, hidden under the cloak of the ‘American Dream’ and the same certainty of infinite prosperity.

          It is being taken away, and people know that. And so react in disparate ways. This ‘virus’ is the latest ‘plot’ to destroy us, or at least the lower echelons of us. Everything that does not ‘fit’ must be a conspiracy by ‘them’. (whoever ‘they’ are.)

          The fact that civilisation is an edifice supported by rich and poor alike occurs to very few. Always there must be ‘dark plots’ involved.
          It is dead end. At the end of a road we have all chosen to follow.

        • In above “NA” stands for North America.. so that’s in sync with your post.

          At least upto recently there had been great deals on acreage in the rural / abandoned corners of the ClubMed (EU) but that’s highly unreasonable option with the realistic prospect of future incoming migration waves (African/ME vectors) and (weak) non existent push back against it both in terms of the state elites and public opinion. Not mentioning the peculiar climate challenges.

          The reset in Europe will be ugly because it’s determined in the ratio of pop per land, and also many int people keep on hold bolt holes there, i.e. in the end too many future feudal landlords per pop / space trying to squeeze blood from the stone..

          My angle is that “property rights” in general sense were less disturbed within the NA context over the larger span of time (generations) in comparison to other continents.

          Otherwise for very young people (say bellow 30yrs – few frequenting this site anyway) with acceptance of trade off in more hierarchic state structure yet enough breathing space available, the East / Byzantium v2.0 is probably also a good bet.

          • qwerty324 says:

            yeah, property rights in europe have been a joke in recent years. even if you theoretically own something your ability to use it or sell it is so restricted you really just own the privilege of paying taxes forever. in greece theyre obsessed with rolling everything into ‘online platforms’ and in the false name of efficiency trying to turn even the functioning of civil society into some kind of ‘app’ controlled of course by opaque big tech overlords. in the states property still seems to be a much simpler matter at a county level. i still have some dream that i’ll return to my native land after we get through this collapse (no illusions about things, after the collapse best case we’re technologically back to the 18th century plus whatever random bits are scavengable from the wreckage) becuase the prospects of making it through in europe are bleak- right when we need to be going local, building up permaculture , planting gardens and trees, rebuilding local community and economy with barter or physical exchange, right when we need to relocalize and drop the high tech insanity, even more high tech insanity and extreme centralization is being forced on everyone at gunpoint.

  35. Hubbs says:

    And now we have a Lamda variant, or, as in the words of Rahm Emanuel who said “never let a good crisis go to waste, ” we now have “never let a good COVID variant go to waste.”

    This whole COVID thing is so off the wall I have now “simplified” my working “hypothesis” that the spike protein in of itself was engineered to be the weapon payload to be delivered via “vaccinations,” and not just some gain of function modification to increase the entry of the rest of the viral particle into the cell. The virus itself is just the vehicle or Trojan Horse to deliver the spike protein which may have prion like properties to sterilize, cause abortions, or cause central nervous system derangements.

    The reason they haven’t “isolated” the virus is that they don’t want you to realize that it, and all these “variants” themselves are harmless- kjnd of like the Wizard behind the curtain. Hence fudging all the data and the PCR testing. In fact, I would not be surprised if the original “strain” was selected because of its ability to readily mutate to make it “necessary” to get follow-up injections, medical passports, and lockdowns for control of the populace. HIV too was also hard to get a vaccine because it mutated so readily. The real objective by the government is to inject as many people as possible with this spike protein, and big pharma is all to happy to oblige if the strain keeps “mutating,” as that means more vaccines and more $.

      Regarding possible steril5sation/interference with reproduction, I highly recommend a video on the ZOE channel on YT, run by (pro-vax) Prof Tim Spector.

      It discusses the awful menstrual problems vaccinated women have been experiencing, but basically telling them it’s all ‘just a coincidence’ that they are merely ‘symptoms of stress’, and nothing at all to do with the injections! The usual dismissive propaganda.

          It’s psychologically interesting, as the women commenting have all been vaxxed, probably clicked to get some reassurance about the problem, but have instead mostly been angered by the patronising attitude of the female doctor.

          Only a few seem to be saying ‘But I’m still happy and grateful I got the jab’.

          They might not be so happy were they to know that the vax spike proteins have been found in ovaries, etc…..

          What is interesting is that even those who were not made obviously and immediately sick by the actual injections – and that seems to be about 80% – have been affected in this way, and it can’t be disguised from them.

          It seems that most have not reported this as a vax injury, either. They just didn’t make the connection.

The point being, when the WEF previously had an exercise for an ‘inevitable’ global pandemic, a global pandemic occurred shortly after. Neil is convinced if WEF are saying it is inevitable, they are effectively warning us it will occur soon. Looks like Klaus Schwab himself is warning the consequences of such an attack will be much worse than those of the fake pandemic. And almost instant.

          If complete chaos was the plan, why bother to forge a pandemic scare? Why not implement plan A right away? It doesn’t make much sense, i think.
          But I take WEF’s schwab threats seriously, and if he says Cybercovid is “unavoidable”, it’s because that hypothesis is on their list, perhaps as a last resort? sort of A bomb in their arsenal?
          My guess is that these WEF projections are a sort of internal warning to political minions: Keep up the covid project, or we’ll turn off the light.

            I am thinking that the only way to breed deadly variants and get them to penetrate through the entire population … is to do what they are doing … deploy a leaky vaccine globally during a pandemic…

            I will assume that it is not possible to achieve this result in a lab as it is necessary to have big numbers of CovIDIOTS involved…

            If you simply take a very deadly virus such as Ebola or West Nile… it won’t kill 8B people…. and one might assume it will weaken as it mutates as it does not want to kill 8B people…

            If the goal is to extinct prior to collapse then you need to Think Big…. you need Hit Hard and Fast and make sure whatever is coming rolls through the global population in a very short period.

            Randomly killing people here and there might trigger the collapse … and billions still suffer and die.

            I still hold that starvation is also part of the CEP. Fear (valid fear…) of the Devil Covid variants also serves to ensure the Goy do not leave their homes seeking plump children (to eat) and vivacious maidens (to rape)…. so they hunker down…

            The PR Team continues to deliver messages of Hope — telling them the food trucks will arrive tomorrow —- do as you are told and Stay Home — eventually they weaken and cannot be bothered to chase the plump children (who are no longer plump anyway)… and vivacious maidens (who now resemble David Beckham’s wife)…. and they lay down and die.

    The great federal-debt Ponzi scheme
    It’s like the pump part of a pump-and-dump scheme in the stock market – without the benefit of an exit strategy

    The discrepancy between raging inflation and soggy Treasury bond yields remains a cognitive dissonance in financial markets. There’s a simple explanation (and “Inflation is transitory” is NOT a full credit answer): The Federal Reserve and the commercial banks that depend on the Fed are virtually the only buyers of US government debt. As long as the Fed is willing (and the market allows it) to buy arbitrarily large amounts of government debt, the price of US government debt is whatever the Fed says it is. It’s like the pump part of a pump-and-dump scheme in the stock market, except without the benefit of an exit strategy. Charles Ponzi in 1920.

    In other news spain revealed that Vernon Coleman is right and you are SCREWED:

    Spain is just putting it all out there. There is new legislation that effectively allows the total end of democracy and All freedom in Spain and this is just the beginning. Any person of legal age will be obliged to carry out the “personal benefits” required by the government, following the guidelines of the National Security Council, whenever the government declares a state of crisis for any reason whatsoever including health. Spain is declaring that all citizens are really slaves of the state without human rights. There is to be no exception and everyone MUST comply with the orders and instructions issued by the government. This new National Security Law stated:

    In the event that a state of crisis is declared in Spain (‘situation of interest to National Security’ is the name given by law), the authorities may also proceed to the temporary requisition of all types of property, at the intervention or provisional occupation of those that are necessary or the suspension of all kinds of activities.

    In the event that a state of crisis is declared in Spain (“situation of interest to National Security” is the name given by law), the authorities may also proceed to the temporary seizure of all types of property, at the intervention or provisional occupation of those that are necessary or the suspension of all kinds of activities. That is so vague it will allow the government to seize all your bank accounts and even your home – PERIOD! Those who suffer financial damages due to the seizure of their property or the interruption of their activity will have the right to be compensated. In its first drafts, the law excludes the payment of compensation to those who are obliged to make a personal benefit. Therefore, any crisis they declare which can be health, environmental, economic, or financial nature, will be covered as well as an invasion from Mars.

    However, this new duty to surrender all property does not stop with individuals. This ALSO applies to companies and legal entities to collaborate with the authorities to overcome whatever crisis they in their sole discretion determine. This introduces yet another new risk to owning any Spanish stocks. The politicians have cleverly found justification for eliminating human rights is contained in article 30 of the Constitution, according to which “Spaniards have the duty and right to defend Spain.”

    On top of that, the government can also create mandatory military service which had been suspended in Spain back in 2001. They are referring to the 4th section, according to which, “by law, the duties of citizens may be regulated in cases of serious risk, catastrophe or public calamity .” This constitutional provision has remained until now inactive. The drafting of this legislation was deliberate toexclude it from any “organic law” which is the only one that can affect fundamental rights. The crisis is to be declared by the head of state – not the courts.

    “The New Narrative”

    Bojo yesterday :

    “Johnson said he would set out how the country would “learn to live with this virus” — a major shift in tone from a leader who has previously painted COVID-19 as an enemy to be vanquished.”

    “Obviously, if we do find another variant that doesn’t respond to the vaccines … then clearly, we will have to take whatever steps we need to do to protect the public.”

    Hmm “**another** variant that doesn’t respond to the vaccines”. A slip of the tongue, did he know that but wasn’t supposed to say it? I thought that the line was that the vaccines are completely effective, that’s why everyone must be vaxxed.

    But soon there will be the Zeta variant … just in time for the winter? The media offers almost no information about Lambda (P.1) and is keeping VERY quiet about Zeta (aka P.2), while pushing more people to get vaxxed. Zeta is a variant of Lambda (P.1). The word seems to be that the vaccines do not work at all for Zeta.

    It took a lot of digging, but I ended up here (Via Google Scholar) reading medical research published just over a week ago, with two interesting tables :

    Look at Table 3 (the variants) and especially Table 4 (vaccine efficacy)

    The figures in the table of vaccine efficacy are shocking. It’s not what The Guardian article posted by Fast Eddy is suggesting. If Pfizer is just 6.7% effective against P.1 (Lambda) then there seems little chance that the vaccines can work at all against P.2 (Zeta variant).

    There is talk here of a “Vaccine boosting regimen”. The idea is, “increase the breadth and potency of antibodies targeting specific RBD regions of the spike glycoprotein”. I see use in the same paragraph of the word “potential”, which gives away that – it seems – currently they do not have anything working yet or know if or when and how it will work. Meanwhile, the virus further mutates. It seems like running after a bus that is accelerating away.

    On June 23rd, yet another new variant called P5 was discovered. This article has a great photo :

    One should also read this :

    If one also takes into account what Geert has to say in the above article and in his previous articles, the future is not looking too promising.

    Why would anyone get vaxxed if there is no protection against new variants? And he is suggesting in his previous article (written in somewhat inpenetrable English) that the variants are *caused* by the vaccines – as they first appeared in all the countries where vaccines were tested.


  43. Harry McGibbs says:

    “…Richard Hughes, the Office for Budget Responsibility’s chairman, said Britain’s debt mountain was more exposed to inflation and interest rate shocks than before the COVID-19 pandemic, largely because of shorter maturities and more inflation-linked bonds.

    “The OBR said the impact on government debt-servicing costs of a one-percentage-point rise in rates was now six times greater than before the 2007-09 financial crisis, and almost twice from before the pandemic.

    ““It used to be the case that governments could inflate their debt away. It is less and less the case as we go into the future,” Hughes said.”

  44. Mirror on the wall says:

    The high court has ruled that the NI Protocol does conflict with the Act of Union and that that is too bad. Sections of the Act of Union are thus repealed. Governments have the power to do that. AOU is just another act that can be overridden by further acts. That is how law works, laws get made up and then they get changed. AOU is just another act like any other, there is nothing special about it.

    DUP (the governing party of NI!) misunderstood how law works, and they seemed to think that AOU is ‘written in stone’ or in some sense ‘sacred’ or unalterable. Reality does not work like that. Moreover, NIP is not contrary to the GFA provisions that there can be no constitutional change without NI consent, as that only touches the question of Irish unity.

    Anyway, now they know. All of that should have been obvious anyway, but they are not the types to let the obvious get in the way of the desired. Thankfully we have courts to settle these matters. Maybe one day NI will get a government that actually understands the very basics of politics, government and law – sad. What a clown show the DUP is.

    > Belfast court dismisses legal challenge to Brexit Northern Ireland protocol

    …. Mr Justice Colton refused a judicial review, rejecting the argument of the DUP and others that the protocol breached the 1800 Acts of Union, declaring that “much constitutional water has passed under the bridge” since then.

    Delivering the judgment, Colton agreed with the applicants that the Brexit Withdrawal Act conflicted with the 1800 Acts of Union, but he ruled that the latter legislation including the protocol overrode the provisions of the 200-year old law, as they in effect repealed part of the Acts of Union.

    He said while the protocol conflicts with the Acts of Union, subsequent treaties – such as the withdrawal agreement with the EU – was a prerogative power over which the courts had little oversight.

    In a lengthy judgment he went on to dismiss four other grounds for a judicial review. Colton rejected the contention that the post-Brexit trade arrangements breached key provisions of the 1998 Northern Ireland Act that legislated for the peace agreement, concluding that the “focus of all the relevant sections in the agreement and the 1998 act is the choice between remaining part of the UK or become part of a united Ireland” and the peace deal.

    Significantly, Colton determined that the 1800 Acts of Union and the Brexit withdrawal legislation were both laws of a constitutional character but said his role was to rule on which one should prevail in law.

    The judge said a starting point, based on fundamental legal principles, was that the most recent legislation should take precedence.

    He said there was no legal precedent whereby the Acts of Union had operated to “nullify a subsequent act of parliament” but there was capacity for “implied repeal” of statute with the passing of latter laws.

    Concluding on that issue, he said: “The acts (2018 and 2020 Withdrawal Agreement Acts) have been approved and implemented pursuant to the express will of parliament and any tension with article six of the Acts of Union should be resolved in favour of the agreement acts of 2018 and 2020.”

    The judicial review proceedings were brought by the former DUP leader Arlene Foster; the former UUP leader Steve Aiken; the Traditional Unionist Voice political leader, Jim Allister; Lord Trimble, the former head of the Ulster Unionist party and co-architect of the 1998 Belfast Good Friday agreement peace deal; the former Brexit party MEP Ben Habib; and the leave campaigner and former Labour MP Kate Hoey.

      > DUP leader rocked by resignation on first day in charge

      Northern Ireland party lacks ‘respect, discipline or decency’, says departing MLA

      New Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) leader Jeffrey Donaldson has been rocked by the resignation of one of his party’s representatives at Stormont on his first full day in charge.

      Alex Easton, the North Down MLA, has announced his decision to quit the DUP – citing a lack of “respect, discipline or decency” in the party.

      “I have had to stand back and watch as colleagues tear themselves apart, brief against other colleagues and run to the media in order to hurt each other on a daily basis,” said Mr Easton.

      “There is no respect, discipline or decency, I have just had enough,” added the MLA, who will now sit in the Northern Ireland Assembly as an independent.

      The move comes after two months of unprecedented turmoil for the party. Successive revolts deposed former leader Arlene Foster and then her successor Edwin Poots, who quit after just 21 days in the job.

    Covid 19 coronavirus: Ultra-contagious Lambda variant detected in Australia

    The world’s most transmissible Covid-19 strain has found its way into Australia – with worrying research revealing it may be even more infectious than the Delta variant.

    The Lambda strain has puzzled World Health Organisation scientists after it spread to nearly 30 countries in the last four weeks. The mutation was originally discovered in Peru and is related to 81 per cent of the country’s cases since April.

    Peru currently has the highest Covid mortality rate in the world.

    In Australia, the variant was detected in an overseas traveller who had been in hotel quarantine in New South Wales in April, according to national genomics database AusTrakka.

    Lambda has just started to make its way into the community in the UK, with six cases reported on Monday.

    It is a worrying sign for the UK, which has recently relaxed Covid-19 restrictions after 37 million people received at least one dose of a vaccine.

    The country had returned to normality in recent weeks, with pubs flooded by revellers enjoying their country’s recent success at Euro 2020.

    However, these civil liberties could change if the highly transmissible Lambda strain spreads across the community.

    Professor Pablo Tsukayama of Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru, said the strain has exploded in Peru, suggesting “its rate of transmission is higher than any other variant”.

    Coronavirus live: Germany should lift all Covid curbs by September, says minister; German minister says Covid restrictions no longer justified once everyone is offered a vaccine.

    Yes… of course!

  47. Fast Eddy says:

    How do variants develop?

    Once a person is infected, the virus that causes Covid-19 replicates tens of thousands of times within our cells. That process is imperfect, so occasionally mutations crop up – some of those changes are completely inert, but others could be more dangerous.

    For a variant to take hold the environment needs to be favourable. The environment is dictated by a host of factors – including interventions such as masks, social distancing, ventilation, vaccines, and the number of immuno-compromised people in whom the vaccines don’t work as well. “That unbalance either favours or disfavours how a variant will spread,” says Dr Stephen Griffin, a virologist and associate professor at the University of Leeds school of medicine.
