Is it possible that the world is approaching end times?

I frequently write that the world economy is, in physics terms, a dissipative structure that is powered by energy. It can grow for a time, but eventually it reaches limits of many kinds. Ultimately, it can be expected to stop growing and collapse.

It seems to me that the world economy is showing signs that it has reached a turning point. Economic growth stopped in 2020 and is having trouble restarting in 2021. Fossil fuel energy of all types (oil, coal and natural gas) is in short supply, relative to the world’s huge population. Ultimately, this inadequate energy supply can be expected to pull the world economy toward collapse.

The world economy doesn’t behave the way most people would expect. Standard modeling approaches miss the point that economies require adequate supplies of energy products of the right kinds, provided at the right times of day and year, if they are to keep from collapsing. Shortages are not necessarily marked by high prices; prices that are too low for producers will bring down the energy supply quickly. A collapse may occur due to inadequate demand; in fact, such a scenario is described in Revelation 18.

As strange as it may seem, we may be approaching what some of us would think of as end times, if our economy collapses for lack of cheap-to-produce energy supplies. In this post, I will try to explain what is happening.

[1] In some ways, the self-organizing economy is like a child’s building toy that, with the use of human energy, can be built up to higher and higher levels.

Figure 1. Thought map by Gail Tverberg.

The economy is gradually built up by the addition of new customers, new businesses and new products. Governments play a role as well, adding new infrastructure, laws and taxes. Adequate wages for employees are important because, to a significant extent, employees are also consumers of goods and services made by the economy.

Adequate energy supplies of the right types are terribly important because every process used by the economy requires energy, even if the only energy used is electricity to light a light bulb or operate a computer. Heating and cooling require energy, as does transportation.

Human energy is an important part of the economy, as well. Humans eat food to provide them with energy. An individual human’s own energy output is relatively tiny; it is about equal to the output of a 100-watt light bulb. With the use of supplemental energy of various kinds, humans can do many tasks that would not be possible otherwise, such as cooking food, creating metals from ores, heating homes, and building cars and trucks.

The economy cannot “go backwards” because, if a product is no longer needed, it will no longer be produced. The economy represented by Figure 1 is in some sense hollow inside. For example, once people started using automobiles, buggy whips were no longer made. If cities went back to using horses as their main means of transport, we would need manure removal services. These, too, would be missing.

[2] Another way of thinking about the world economy is that it is somewhat like a rocket that needs fuel. It also has waste outputs. Both of these limit the growth of the world economy.

Figure 2. Chart by Gail Tverberg.

The economy uses a wide array of inputs. At the same time, it produces a whole host of undesirable outputs. Inputs need to be inexpensive to produce, or citizens will not be able to afford the goods and services made by the system. The waste outputs cannot become too significant, or they can lead the economy to fail. In fact, with the world’s growing population, we seem to be reaching many limits with respect to both inputs and undesirable outputs, simultaneously.

[3] Strangely enough, the major energy limit that the world economy is hitting seems to be “energy prices that do not rise high enough for producers.”

This energy limit is exactly the opposite of what most people are looking for. They assume that “demand” will always rise. In fact, the cost of production of energy products keeps rising because the easy to produce energy products are produced first. It is the market prices that energy products can be sold for that do not rise adequately.

When we trace the problem back, we discover that the problem with prices arises from the equivalence between producers of goods and services and consumers of goods and services indicated on Figure 1. In order to have enough “demand” to keep energy prices high enough for providers, it turns out that even the very low wage people in the world economy need to be able to afford necessities such as food, water, clothing, basic housing and transportation. In fact, if the cost of extracting fossil fuels rises too quickly because of depletion, or if the cost of getting renewable electricity into a form in which it is useful for society rises too much, there may be a situation when even a price based on full demand from all consumers is too low for energy producers.

Let’s define “return on human labor” as what a person without advanced training can earn by selling his physical labor as unskilled labor. Rather than dollar or euro terms, wages need to be thought of in terms of the physical goods and services that these wages can purchase. If supplemental energy per capita is rising rapidly, the return on human labor tends to rise. This happens because with higher energy consumption, humans can have more tools and technology requiring energy at their command. For example, the period between 1950 and 1970 was a time when energy consumption was rising rapidly. It was also a time of rising standards of living, even for workers without advanced training.

Figure 3. World per capita energy consumption, with the 1950-1980 period of rapid growth highlighted. World Energy Consumption by Source, based on Vaclav Smil’s estimates from Energy Transitions: History, Requirements and Prospects (Appendix) together with BP Statistical Data for 1965 and subsequent years, divided by population estimates by Angus Maddison.

The world economy can be expected to run into a major problem once supplemental energy consumption per capita starts falling because then human labor is necessarily less leveraged by fewer machines, such as trucks and airplanes. In total, fewer goods and services can be produced.

If energy supply is inadequate, businesses often find it advantageous to substitute computers or other machines for some work previously done by low paid workers. While these machines use a little energy in their operation, they do not need food, housing or transportation the way human workers do. With fewer actual workers, demand for finished goods and services tends to fall, pushing commodity prices, including those for fossil fuels, down. This further adds to the low-price problem.

It is the lack of jobs that pay well that tends to hold down commodity prices below the prices producers require. Ultimately, it is the lack of sufficient jobs that pay well that tends to bring the whole economy down. Most researchers have missed this important point.

[4] In the period leading up to collapse, wages fail to rise with the cost of required services. This leads to increasingly unhappy workers. Healthcare costs and college costs are especially problematic, because their costs have been rising faster than costs in general.

Figure 4. Illustrates the issue that seems to be occurring:

Figure 4. Chart from Washington Post based on a Cost-of-Thriving analysis by Oren Cass.

When energy consumption per capita is growing rapidly, the economy adds items that were not previously considered necessary. Instead of a basic education for all being sufficient, advanced education (often paid for by the student) becomes necessary for many jobs. Healthcare costs keep rising rapidly, making it more difficult to make wages cover all necessary expenses (Figure 4).

We can see additional evidence that workers have been tending to get poorer in recent years by looking at the trend in the number of light vehicles purchased. With rising population, a person would expect the number of automobiles sold to increase, year after year, if citizens found their incomes as adequate as in the past. Instead, we see a pattern of falling automobile sales, practically everywhere, starting well before 2020. For example, peak light vehicle sales in China occurred in 2017.

Figure 5. Auto sales by country based on data of

[5] An increase in debt can temporarily be used to hide both inadequate inexpensive-to-produce energy supply and inadequate wages of workers, but we seem to be reaching limits using this approach to hide energy problems.

The last time the world had relatively stable low oil prices was in the years prior to 1973. As noted previously, low energy prices tend to make finished goods, such as homes and cars, inexpensive to buy and operate. Thus, they tend to be affordable.

Figure 6. Inflation-adjusted oil prices based on data of BP’s 2021 Statistical Review of World Energy.

The big issue if oil and other prices rise very high is that the selling prices of goods and services tend to rise too high to be affordable to consumers. The workaround that was developed to fix this unaffordability problem was to change the economy to use more debt. To be affordable, interest rates had to fall lower and lower. Peak interest rates occurred in 1981; they have been trending downward since then.

Figure 7. 10-Year US Treasury and 3-Month Treasury yields, through November 2021. Chart by St. Louis Federal Reserve (FRED).

If debt at ever-lower interest rates is available, assets such as homes, farmland, factories and shares of stock become more affordable, allowing prices of these assets to rise. Owners of these assets feel wealthier. In fact, they may borrow more money against the inflated price of these assets and use this money to buy more goods and services made with commodities, thus helping to raise commodity prices. The lower interest rates make the purchase of automobiles more affordable as well, helping to raise the price of commodities used to make and operate automobiles.

There is a limit on how low these interest rates can go, however, especially if inflation is a problem. Current interest rates seem to be down near where they were during the Great Depression of the 1930s. This suggests that the economy is truly doing very poorly.

Today, Brent oil prices are about $69 per barrel. This price is not high enough for producers to want to prepare more fields for drilling. As far as I can see, the price needs to be up in the range of $120 per barrel, and stay there for many years, for oil producers to consider putting major effort into developing more fields. Natural gas and coal have similar low-price problems.

While governments cannot seem to be able to fix the low-price problem for fossil fuels, they can find ways to pay their citizens money for doing nothing, or next to nothing. These payments will add to a government’s debt, but they don’t really produce more goods and services. What these payments tend to produce is inflation in the prices of goods and services that are available.

Over time, we can expect the lack of growth in energy supply to lead to an increasing number of broken supply lines. Without long-term high-price guarantees, producers will not be willing to increase production. Without adequate fuel supply, an increasing number of products will disappear from the shelves of stores. A smaller number of people will have jobs, especially jobs that pay well. The economy can be expected to head in the direction of collapse.

We can think of debt as a promise of future goods and services, made with future energy production. If energy supplies are rising rapidly and can be expected to continue to rise rapidly in the future, this promise can be expected to hold. Of course, if energy supplies start falling, all bets are off. Supply lines are likely to break. We consider money and other securities issued by governments to be a “store of value,” but, if there is little to buy (for example, all international flights are cancelled and automobiles of the desired type are permanently out of stock), its ability to act as a store of value will start to disappear. If the economy collapses completely, neither stocks nor bonds will have value.

[6] Nothing happens for a single reason in a self-organizing economy. Lack of energy affects every part of the economy, from jobs to finished output, almost simultaneously.

In a self-organizing economy, everything is interconnected. Inadequate energy per capita leads to low selling prices for commodities of all kinds. Inadequate energy per capita also leads to low wages for workers, low benefits provided by governments, and uprisings to protest these low wages and benefits. These uprisings began in 2019 or even earlier.

The unhappiness of workers leads to the election of increasingly radical politicians, in the hope that something can be done to fix the problems. There are basically not enough goods and services to go around, but no one wants to admit that this could be a problem.

[7] Citizens cannot imagine a declining and eventually collapsing economy. Businesses, governments and individual citizens all demand “happily ever after futures.”

Figure 8. Chart by Gail Tverberg. Amounts through 2020 based on an analysis of historical energy consumption using the same sources as those used in Figure 3.

If there is a history of growth, nearly everyone is happier if forecasts pretend that economic growth can continue forever. Newspapers want such stories, because this is what their advertisers, such as automakers, want. Automobiles need to be usable for a long period in the future. Universities want favorable forecasts because they want their students to believe that their degrees will have great future value. Politicians want a story of growth forever, because this is what voters want and expect. They have come to believe that governments can save them from all problems; there is no longer any need for religion.

As energy supplies get scarce, the rich tend to become richer and the poor tend to become poorer. François Roddier explains that this is because of the physics of the situation. Wealthy individuals and corporations discover that they have a rapidly growing ability to influence the narrative provided by Mainstream Media. If influential citizens and groups want citizens to hear a “happily ever after ending” to our current problems, they can make certain that this is the predominant narrative of Mainstream Media. It is only people who are willing to hear sources outside of the mainstream who can learn what is really happening.

The fact that the world economy would run into energy limits about now has been known for a very long time. For example, US Navy Rear Admiral Hyman Rickover talks about the close connection between energy and the economy in this 1957 speech. He points out that the world is likely to run short of fossil fuel by 2050. Later modeling documented in the 1972 book The Limits to Growth indicated that the world economy was likely to collapse in a similar timeframe. The modeling done in that analysis considered rising population relative to total resources, without looking at energy resources separately.

[8] It is easy to create models that predict growth will continue forever, even if the physics of the situation says this is not possible.

Economists provide their work to politicians. They certainly cannot provide forecasts of a coming calamity such as economic collapse. They also are unaware of the physics of the situation, even though many researchers have been writing about the issue from a physics point of view since at least the mid-1980s.

Economists have chosen instead to make models that assume no limits are ahead. They seem to assume that all problems will be fixed by innovation, substitution and the pricing mechanism. They produce forecasts suggesting that the economy can grow endlessly in the future. Based on these forecasts, they provide input to models that reach the conclusion that amazingly large amounts of fossil fuels will be extracted in the future. Based on these nonsensical models, our problem is not the near-term limits that we are reaching; instead, our chief problem is climate change. Its impacts occur mostly in the future.

A corollary to this belief system is that it is we humans who are in charge and not the laws of physics. We can expect governments to protect us. We don’t need any outside help from a literal Higher Power who created the laws of physics. We need to listen to what the authorities on earth tell us. In fact, in troubled times, governments need more authority over their citizens. The many concerns regarding COVID-19 make it easy for governments to increase their control over citizens. We are told that it is only by following the mandates of governments that we will get through this strange time.

With nearly everyone on board with the idea that somehow the story of near-term collapse must be avoided at all costs, every part of the economy bases its actions on the narrative that the world economy is voluntarily moving away from fossil fuels. In this narrative, renewables will save us; electric vehicles are the way of the future; the world economy can continue to grow, but in a new way.

In fact, we are colliding with resource limits, right now. This seems to be what produced the bizarre situation experienced in 2020.

[9] As 2020 began, many sectors of the world economy were squeezed simultaneously. With limited energy resources, large parts of the economy needed to be cut back. The self-organizing economy acted in a very strange way. Shutdowns supposedly aimed at stopping COVID-19 from spreading acted very much like energy rationing, without mentioning the world’s energy problem.

Figure 9. World per capita energy supply by type of fuel, based on BP 2021 Statistical Review of World Energy data.

Several years before 2020, it should have been clear that the world economy was doing very poorly based on the continued need for very low interest rates (Figure 7) and Quantitative Easing. China, in particular, was doing poorly, as indicated by its low sales of automobiles (Figure 5). Of course, China doesn’t broadcast its problems to the rest of the world, so few people were aware of this issue.

China had been able to boost the world’s per capita supply of inexpensive-to-produce energy by ramping up its coal production after it joined the World Trade Organization in 2001. (Note the world ramp-up in coal, starting after 2001, on Figure 9.) Unfortunately, because of depletion, China’s coal production since 2013 has been close to flat. Furthermore, China had had a big recycling business, but discontinued it effective January 1, 2018. Discontinuation of this program was necessary because oil prices had fallen in 2014 and had never recovered to their former level. With low oil prices, most recycling in China made no sense economically. The loss of jobs from recycling and cutbacks in coal operations no doubt contributed to the declining sale of vehicles in China.

In the years before 2020, another big issue was that the wages of many workers were not keeping up with the rising cost of living. Figure 4 illustrates this issue for the US. The problem was especially acute for lower wage workers. During this period, the prices of many commodities were too low for producers. This led to layoffs and low wages for workers.

In early 2020, the world became aware of a new coronavirus that had been identified in China. The response to this new illness was very strange, compared to how previous pandemics had been handled. The response looked a great deal like intentionally scaring people (especially older people) into staying at home. If this were done, much less oil could be used. Natural gas and coal consumption could be reduced, as well.

This story is perhaps not so strange if we look at it in context. On January 8, 2020, I wrote that we should be expecting recession and low oil prices in 2020. I included this oil price chart.

Figure 10. Inflation adjusted weekly average Brent oil price, based on EIA oil spot prices and US CPI-urban inflation.

On January 29, I wrote, It is easy to overreact to a coronavirus. In this article, I pointed out that the economy already seemed to be headed in the direction of recession. Shutdowns would only make the problem worse.

Politicians choosing to shut down their economies in early 2020 were likely not aware that the real underlying problem within their economy was inadequate availability of inexpensive-to-produce energy. They were aware that China had decided to shut down part of its economy, so perhaps there might be some usefulness to such an action. Local leaders outside of China knew that their own factories were underutilized. If their own factories could be shut down temporarily, perhaps they could operate at closer to capacity, once they reopened.

Furthermore, a shutdown would give an excuse to keep workers protesting low wages inside. After the shutdown, there would be an excuse to raise the debt level, perhaps keeping the financial part of the economy going for a while longer. So, a shutdown would have many benefits, apart from any potential benefit from (sort of) containing the virus.

It became apparent as time went on that the vaccine story for COVID-19 was playing multiple roles, as well. The healthcare industry was becoming very large in the US. In fact, the size of the healthcare industry was beginning to interfere with the economy as a whole (Figure 4). Furthermore, manufacturers of medicines and vaccines were having problems with diminishing returns because the big, important drug finds had been discovered years ago. It was becoming difficult to profitably fund all of the research needed for new drugs.

Behind the scenes, the vaccine industry had been working for years on creating new viruses and preparing vaccines for these same viruses. The theory was that the same approaches that delivered vaccines might be helpful in treating diseases of various kinds. Vaccines might also be helpful in responding to bioweapon attacks. If drug manufacturers could market a blockbuster vaccine, the manufacturers, as well as the individuals holding the vaccine patents, could become rich.

The US was not alone in the research with respect to viruses and vaccines for these viruses. Many major countries, including Canada, France, Italy, Australia and China had funded this research, partly through their budgets for health research and partly through military budgets. There was virtually no chance that anyone would figure out the source of any problematic virus because so many major countries had had a part in funding this research. If citizens could be convinced that the virus was extremely dangerous and mandate the use of vaccines, the vaccine industry could greatly profit from vaccine sales. The vaccine could be created and marketed quickly because all of the research (but not enough testing) had been performed earlier.

A great deal of planning had been done before the pandemic appeared, based to a significant extent upon what outcome vaccine makers would prefer. Johns Hopkins University completed a SPARS Pandemic Scenario in October 2017, rehearsing responses to a pandemic. A training exercise called Event 201 was held on October 18, 2019, for the purpose of training high level government officials and news writers what their responses should be.

The sponsors of Event 201 were “The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.” The latter two organizations are representatives of the very wealthy individuals and very large corporations. The primary interest of these organizations is enriching those who are already wealthy. The World Economic Forum is known for proclaiming, “You’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”

As time went on, it became very clear that the true nature of the COVID-19 epidemic was being hidden from citizens. It was, and is, not a terribly dangerous illness if it is treated properly with any number of inexpensive medications including aspirin, ivermectin, antihistamine and steroids. In fact, the severity of the disease could also be lessened by taking vitamin D in advance. There really was not a great deal of point to the vaccines, except to enrich the vaccine manufacturers and those who would benefit from the sale of the vaccines, including Anthony Fauci and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It also became clear that the vaccines don’t really do what a person might expect a vaccine to do. They do tend to stop severe illness, but taking vitamin D in advance would provide pretty much the same benefit. They don’t stop COVID-19 from circulating because vaccinated people can still catch COVID-19. The vaccines seem to have any number of side effects, including raising the risk of heart attacks.

The historical period most similar to the current period, in terms of shortage of energy supply, is that between World War I and World War II. At that time, the Jews were persecuted. Now, there is an attempt to divide the world into Vaccinated and Unvaccinated, with the Unvaccinated persecuted. When the economy cannot produce enough goods and services for all members of the economy, the economy seems to divide into almost warring parts.

We are basically trying to deal with an energy scenario that looks a lot like Figure 8, and the self-organizing economy comes up with very strange solutions. If people can convince themselves that it is OK to ostracize the unvaccinated, then maybe the move down the collapse will go more smoothly. For example, the military can be cut back in size by dismissing the unvaccinated, without admitting that with current resources, there is a need to reduce the size of the military.

Europe is the part of the world where the push for vaccinations is now highest. It is also in terrible shape with respect to energy supply. By ostracizing the unvaccinated, European countries can attempt to cut back their economies to the size that their energy supply will support, without admitting the real problem.

[10] The world economy is increasingly acting like economies that have collapsed in the past. In fact, there seems to be a connection with some of the strange statements from the book of Revelation.

We are living in a world now in which even if there are temporary price spikes, there is little chance that fossil fuel providers will ramp up their production. In order to ramp up supplies, they would need to start several years in advance, preparing new fields. Oil, coal and gas prices have stayed so low, for so long, that there is no belief that prices can rise to a high enough level and stay there, as the fuels are extracted. Thus, the fossil fuel will stay in the ground.

At the same time, it is becoming increasingly clear that renewables cannot be depended upon. In fact, low generation of electricity by wind turbines is part of the reason Europe is having to import the large quantity of natural gas and coal supplies it now requires. There is concern that rolling blackouts may be necessary during the winter in Europe, if not this year, sometime in the next few years.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the future energy scenario will look something like Figure 8, causing world population to fall dramatically within the next thirty years. This is the kind of situation most of us would associate with collapse. I think of it as being equivalent to end times, since our modern civilization will be disappearing. It is possible that there will be a remnant of people left, but they will be living a much simpler life, without fossil fuels or modern renewables.

There are several parts to what is happening that remind me of Old Testament writings in general, and of the book of Revelation (from the New Testament), in particular.

First, the willingness of the ultra-rich to look out for themselves and keep what look like perfectly good, cheap cures for COVID-19 from the world population seems to be precisely the kind of despicable behavior that Old Testament prophets despised. For example, in Amos 5:21-24, Amos tells the Jews that God despises their prior behavior. In verse 24 (NIV), he says, “But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!”

As I noted in the introduction, Revelation 18 talks about lack of demand being an issue in the collapse of Babylon, and presumably in any future collapse that occurs. Revelation 18:11-13 reads:

11 The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one buys their cargoes anymore— 12 cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron and marble;13 cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.

The need for vaccine passports in some countries reminds a person of Revelation 13:17, “they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.” In fact, people in Sweden are getting microchip implants after its latest COVID passport mandate.

Some people believe that Revelation 12 describes the Antichrist; that is, the polar opposite of Christ. Before the world comes to an end, Revelation 12 seems to predict a great fight against this Antichrist, which Christ wins. I could imagine Anthony Fauci being the Antichrist.

We are not used to living in a world where very little that is published by the Mainstream Media makes sense. But when we live in a time where no one wants to hear what is true, the system changes in a bizarre way, so that a great deal that is published is false.

It is disturbing to think that we may be living near the end of the world economy, but there is an upside to this situation. We have had the opportunity to live at a time with more conveniences than any other civilization. We can appreciate the many conveniences we have.

We also have the opportunity to decide how we want to live the rest of our lives. We have been led for many years down the path of believing that economic growth will last forever; all we need to do is have faith in the government and our educational institutions. If we figure out that this really isn’t the path to follow, we can change course now. If we want to choose a more spiritual approach, this is a choice we can still make.

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.

    Thanks for the new article Gail. Appreciate it sister.

    Here is the Dr Jessica Rose Gal Shalev interview. Gal just got kicked off twitter for discussing the first batch of data the judge said the FDA (got your back) had to release on the way to final release in 2076. Its rather long and rambling. I didnt mind because i was struck by true geek love with dr. rose. Heart gif heart gif heart gif.

    None the less it represent a good bit of knowledge in spite of the geek meandering. heart gif. One aspect is her discussion of how the peer reviewed paper process is now just POOF down the memory hole for certain subjects. All those decades of belief in the process how it represented the process of finding truth called scientific discovery POOF. Hard for Dr Rose a very unconspiracy minded individual to cope with.

    The meat and potatoes of course is just how overwhelming the data is that the injections are completely and horrendously unsafe. Its simply not debatable. The long term effects IMO will be even more horrendous. Yet the emperor is fully clothed at least for now.

    What happened to a person grounded in the reality that energy runs the world (as it does), to jump off a cliff into covert conspiracy theories? As person who studied under H.t. Odum and received an advanced degree under his supervision, I am blown away how you have now digressed from physical reality (almost a million people have now died from Covid in the U.S.) grounded in energy theory and ascribed to craziness.

    The first half of this paper is grounded in reality and it demonstrates that we are entering a no-groth future. The second half soars into nonsense.

        Hi Gail,

        I normally remain on the sidelines, but TB, the self-proclaimed inferenced genius acolyte of H.T Odum seems to have slept through or been willfully absent on matters related to the convergence of the plandemic/energy situation. He conveniently or ignorantly omits the other side of the equation that tallies the massive amounts of death and adverse reactions caused by injections that have proved to be, and proclaimed by many authorities, to not work. Hence, we’re approaching 3 jabs, endless variants with more to come. How convenient to ignore or be ignorant about that small point. I take no pleasure in rebutting his assertion or willful ignorance but his claims of you purporting nonsense is specious and uncalled for.

        To suggest that the terminal decline in energy production followed by the repo crisis in September of 2019 followed by the shutting down of the economy in early 2020 under the cover of a plandemic is unrelated beggars belief. I suggest TB reread all of your posts, post lockdowns to get a better more informed understanding as to how you have arrived to the conclusions contained in your latest post. Your conclusions are sound, measured, considerate, informed and over the course of time IMHO, will prove to be correct.

        It’s no wonder we have arrived at a point where almost every government and institution of influence is occuppied by pathetic, ignorant and corrupt officials. They say you get the kind of goverance you deserve. Case in point: we have a so-called President of the United States who not only spews bald faced lies, but cannot string a series of coherent words in a basic sentence. I am sure that’s likely lost on TB as well.

              at posh dinner event somewhere in the Alps, Mrs. deSteelMills turns over to Mr. Notsmalbanque, “..Oh, George, .. no I can’t calm down, eh just must take it personally, when these .. theezzee .. people out there talk about [ the thing ] so jovially in the plain open, as if they had the scoop of the plan completely, damn, this is atrocious failure by Mr. Revolwdor, he just sits there in Wash DC doing what exactly.., he must do something.. ! ..”

              Next morning, Mr. Nostmalbanque on the request of several friends from yesterdays dinner party starts the composition of an important email.

              Next day, Mr. Revolwdor in Wash. DC reading the email immediately calls his contact in peculiar agency, which summons its division under secretary Mr. Traiterionk, which then calls program manager Mr. Deceitspuk, who then calls buro head Mrs. LazyDaisy, and she finally dials out that free-lancer personality “Shastajoke” to mount intelligent rebuttal on the OFW..

        Bonhoeffer’s Theory of Stupidity

        “Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than evil,” wrote Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian. Penning this sentence ten years after the accession of Adolf Hitler to supreme power, these words reflected tough lessons soaked in blood. Bonhoeffer formed part of a small circle of resistance to the dictator in Germany, risking his life for an ideal.

        It was a dark time in his homeland. Total war had engulfed the world, and a totalitarian regime was controlling the country. Bonhoeffer pondered how this came to be. He thought about the nature of evil, but came to the conclusion it was not evil itself that was the most dangerous enemy of the good. Rather, it was stupidity.

        For you can fight against evil. Evil gives people a queasy feeling in the stomach. As Bonhoeffer continued, “evil carries with itself the seeds of its own destruction.” To prevent willful malice, you can always erect barriers to stop its spread. Against stupidity you are defenseless.

        “Against stupidity we have no defense. Neither protests nor force can touch it. Reasoning is of no use. Facts that contradict personal prejudices can simply be disbelieved — indeed, the fool can counter by criticizing them, and if they are undeniable, they can just be pushed aside as trivial exceptions. So the fool, as distinct from the scoundrel, is completely self-satisfied. In fact, they can easily become dangerous, as it does not take much to make them aggressive. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

        Understanding the nature of stupidity

        After writing down those words, Bonhoeffer was soon arrested. He died two years later, executed in a concentration camp by Nazi henchmen. The man lived in what now seems like a completely different era. Yet, the ideas he left us with have an application in any century. For stupidity hasn’t disappeared. It is eternal.

        “If we want to know how to get the better of stupidity, we must seek to understand its nature.” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer


        Which begs the question — if a stupid MOREON speaks… is it the same as a dog barking?

        • oh–I don’t know.

          Stupidity can be countered with intelligent humour

          the kind that doesn’t require lines of h’s and a’s to remind people that they are expected to laugh at what they are reading.

          • Fast Eddy says:

            Did you see a lot of yourself in that essay norm?

            When Tim first posted it and I read it… I thought he was writing about you specifically .. has the author interviewed you for this piece?

      • Azure Kingfisher says:

        Gail, I’m finding this sudden influx of critics to your blog hilarious. Their comments merely demonstrate their own limitations in thinking beyond aging, sclerotic paradigms.

        The world is changing and we can either change with it or cling to dying systems of thought. There is opportunity for growth of consciousness if we’re are willing to accept that it’s going to require exploring the unexplored. Successful adaptation to our changing world will require no less than this, and common knowledge – what “everyone knows” and takes for granted – will change and, consequently, so will the definition of meaning in our lives.
        How many of your latest critics are prepared to do this hard work of self-reflection and introspection? Judging by their complaints it seems as though they’d rather the messenger change her message instead of attempting to work through the implications of her message.

        As many have said before, your longtime readers have grown accustomed to understanding and accepting some of the harsh truths that readers of the mainstream media are not ready to accept. Well, I think lately you’ve been taking your blog to the next level, where the implications of your research has begun to challenge some self-proclaimed longtime readers on their own hallowed ground. Growth can be painful and perhaps this is why they’re now crying foul and attempting to psychologically move you into the “heretic” and “conspiracy theorist” category in their minds.

        Your observations of parallels between our present circumstances and Revelation are entirely valid observations – it’s your critics who are uncomfortable with the implications forming in their own minds.
        For the helplessly secularized among us, why not simply pass over these observations as mere coincidences between modern times and the narrative of an old text? Gail is simply pointing out similarities, not proselytizing loudly on a street corner as you walk by, so why the discomfort and defensiveness?

        Perhaps these people would prefer Our Finite World to simply be a dry chronicle of a global economy in decline; the equivalent of a cold stock ticker that sticks to informing readers of the latest global energy price movements but doesn’t challenge them to examine their own beliefs.

        I think you’re on a great track, Gail. Everyone here knows the gist of the global predicament we face. Where we attempt to go from there as a species is the truly interesting subject matter. Thank you for your continued exploration into new frontiers.

    • Mike Roberts says:

      Yes, we’re entering the end times though it’s not clear how Gail sees those unfolding. I think it’ll be stretched out over maybe a decade or more (I don’t subscribe to John Michael Greer’s notion of collapse over a century or more).

      The COVID part is pure speculation and highly so. Countries seem desperate to get back to growth (without understanding the resource limitations) and many of them are trying to minimise restrictions. The disease has a resolved case fatality rate of 2.15%, from the Worldometer data, so is quite lethal. Restrictions are, for the most part, not designed to stop the spread, as Gail contends, but to slow the spread. “Cures” are currently speculative (though I’d like to see more robust trials that actually do try to determine the efficacy of treatments rather than being designed to show they don’t work). The notion of dividing vaccinated and unvaccinated has some validity (the attitude of some vaccinated people is ridiculous) but the division in many developed nations is not equal, with over 80% of adults vaccinated.

      As for references to religious texts. I’ve got no idea of how that helps the story of end-times that Gail is trying to put forward. It seems to be an irrelevant add-on.

      • Fast Eddy says:

        mike… I was hoping that you’d use the few days of no OFW to rethink the length of your posts… if you go beyond 3 lines nobody reads them… because have limited time and don’t want to waste it on you

        If you stay with 3 there is a chance some will read it without immediately deleting

        The one where you say you want to keep injecting so you can keep ‘getting around’ and enjoying your freedom — that’s the perfect length… can we have more of those?

      • Adonis says:

        The religious texts offer a glimpse into previous end times collapses or maybe they are predicting future events such as our current predicament the revelations are a fascinating book explaining the downfall of man and how it will all unfold from my memory because i read the revelations quite a lot in my younger years onlly 144000 humans will survive the tribulations to come .Maybe Gail can do an article on the book of revelations.It may be quite revealing to some of the finite worlders

    Thanks for another great article Gail just thought id let anyone know of another way of getting out of the mrna jab by getting a traditional vaccine for covid 19 if you wish to keep your job thats what i will be doing as my employers are forcing us to get jabbed just tell your employer your waiting for the covax 19 jab to be approved and you will have that the employer was okay with that as having no jab whatsoever meant you could no longer do your job so future employment was uncertain even the government who had mandated the jab had no answer for the time being i will be put on forced unpaid leave from December 20 of this year until i get any jab. So ill be waiting for the approval of the traditional vaccine jab.

    • Unpaid leave doesn’t sound good at all! Waiting for approval of the vaccine may take a long time.

      • Adonis says:

        The employer said to use your annual leave and long service leave during the unpaid leave duration if you have any from over 100 employees there are only six left who are against the jab how can you win with those sort of odds and this pattern is probably playing out all over the world If it is the death jab I can see how rapid depopulation agenda can be achieved. .

      “This will be a virus version of the UN IPCC & Paris climate style pacts. The pandemic ‘crisis’ will become permanent just like the ‘climate crisis.’ Attempts to impose lockdowns for future COVID variants or new viruses may be internationally imposed instead of national, state or local. If you don’t like your governor, mayor or school board, you can vote them out, but if a ‘radical’ WHO ‘pandemic treaty’ that is ‘legally binding’ becomes reality, global mandates may be coming your way and local elections will cease to matter as unelected bureaucrats will be yielding the real power over your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. This must be stopped now. Even the Washington Post is calling a ‘pandemic treaty’ a ‘radical’ idea.

        a) a big insurrection in very importan Countries, such as: US, Germany, France, UK, Australia etc.
        b) the autonomous demolition of the social systems outrun their ‘controlled demolition’ and so they lose control over people.

    Dr. Byram Bridle talks off the cuff about a variety of vacx issues (Nov. 15, ~30 min.). Interesting the health reporting structure filters in Canada. Some details of observed vacx action, reminds us of how science is actually done, points out how “their” Narrative is inconstant. He desires a public debate with those on the other side of the narrative, but all those who might do so refuse. Has colleagues who’ve signed letters against him who haven’t even read his position. Says we don’t even need to be able to debate the scientific details, since proponents of the Narrative have been emitting conflicting and questionable statements, undermining their credibility.

      These letters signed by colleagues against Dr. Bridle remind me of this:

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s book on Fauci is out of stock at all the normal outlets, it seems. Most places don’t indicate when they’ll have more, but Barnes and Noble said it would be in stock on Dec. 24th., just in time for you to *not* be able to buy one for a friend or relative for Christmas. This seems intentional.

    Yes, there is a very inexpensive Kindle version, but on top of paying Bezos, that requires initialization energy.. a person has to actively acquire it., which is different from someone pressing a physical book into your hand.

    The publisher’s site just links to a few online outlets (all of which are out of stock).

    • Azure Kingfisher says:

      It will be interesting to see if Fauci attempts to go after Kennedy for libel. If he doesn’t then that would seem a good indication that the allegations in the book are true.

      • Doubtful as that would open him up to discovery and depositions under oath

      • He doesn’t care (doomy black cat is out of the box at this point), simple as that. And more importantly why stirring up the publicity – awareness needlessly. As long as the regime lasts he is well protected, and or family / descendants continue to receive various “pharma patent” fees into the future..

        While Kennedies’s had been hated primarily as [ class / regime traitors ] by their oligarch buddies for spilling the beans or offering undue hopium for the unwashed masses, that’s in their family tree curse apparently.

        Kennedy is a trial lawyer, so I think he understands the boundaries of the path he can tread.

          Fauci won’t do this even if he thought he’d win because it would only invite more publicity.

        Originally this strategy was allegedly to help the “great unbanked” formerly known as people living in poverty.

        (“Chips” are extremely dated tech by now).

        This new so called SMART vaccine, is to be optimised to retain data of vaccine Mrs I.D. tied to biometrics plus digital banking (via for example MasterCards TRUST-STAMP & blockchain).

    Gail, thanks for this magnificent piece. This piece shows clearly that you are different and have a very broad view of things and events. No silo view or thinking. You have a very great view high up on the perch. A macro view of things to say the least. You are a “data scientist” yet have no problems with religion or believing in “Higher Power”.

    There will be always people who have not commented before suddenly coming in to comment, be it positive or negative, it is expected but why is it that people cannot accept a real science-based and not Fauci-science talking about religion or trying to infer to the existence of “Higher Power”? Are they that arrogant?

    Those who are seriously aware of what is happening (since early years of peak oil) have one thing in common. We don’t cling on to views when events/things forces a change. I have changed my viewpoints on many things, most of them 180° since a long time ago. This is something that most people, especially professionals will never do. That is their downfall.

    Since mid of last year, one of my views changed partly due to personal experiences and events that defies explanation. A long sequence of statistically impossible events happened to me. I subscribe to the fact that we are in a simulation and things are just unfolding out as it is. It fits what Eastern philosophy like Buddhism is stating all along. Buddhism asks one to seek the truth.

    Which “religion” asks its followers to seek the truth although Buddhism itself is not a religion?

    An interesting book, “Blip, Humanity’s 300 years self-terminating experiment with industrialism” by Chris Clugston expresses the belief that Homo sapiens will, after the industrial age, blast through the next level, the agricultural period, and back to hunter/gathers, becoming extinct by 2050.

    • Yes, we had this discussion over the years several times already.
      Nature is evidently additive in the sense of ever enlarging the biomass, hence the existence and origins of deep black soil regions or vast corral reefs, forests etc..

      Then came waves of humanoids and worked their “predestined” mole like role to upset that all, an terra-forming agent of global change if you will, so now the role likely ends for that “mutant chimpanzee” and nature can start some another large phase cycle anew.

      I doubt it. There is too much stuff lying around that will be repurposed humans are far too resourceful. It’s a common trope amongst the bourgeoisie of the west to assume near term human extinction, because we are so bloody hopeless. Go and mingle with the third world and marvel at the resourcefulness and adaptation, as well as the serene disregard for our opinions on the future. Billions may die yes, but plenty will carry on in some way or another. You really think people like the Pashtuns or Mongols are going to go extinct as industrial society winds down? They will merely shrug and make do, which is the attitude we all need. Granted it’s going to be much tougher in the most developed countries, and Western Europe in particular looks headed for disaster. But perhaps we are not destined to be around much longer, and the meek will inherent the earth.

    • Azure Kingfisher says:

      Everyone has their breaking point. This applies to all cultists, including Branch Covidians.
      I’ve heard “vaccine” recipients tell me “I’m definitely not getting any boosters,” and “I’m not going to let them vaccinate my children.” A variety of personal lines are being drawn each day.

      The narrative is shifting in the US.

      Next week, the US senate is set to hold a vote on the Biden “vaccine” mandate. Politicians aren’t risk takers – they’re moving forward because it’s politically safe for them to do so. Republicans are set to score political points for this, and Democrats are set to excuse themselves to their pro-mandate base with, “We really tried but those damned Republican senators thwarted our attempts to force everyone around you into injecting themselves.” Additionally, now that there will be a vote on this “vaccine” madness, the public will get to see just how their representatives vote on the issue and can thus determine who will be on their shit lists going into the New Year and the midterm elections.

      Personal disclaimer: No, I’m not advocating for holding unreasonable faith in the US political system as a means of solving our problems, but rather, I’m pointing out that the “official” scamdemic narrative is shifting at the federal level and that the rest of the nation, including private employers, will soon follow. Branch Covidians, whose loyalty has always been fundamentally rooted in fear, will scatter in the face of any successful legislation against their cult as they’re not willing to face legal penalties for their continuing to force their misguided beliefs on others.

      Ultimately, the question is: how long can Branch Covidians maintain their faith? How long can they remain faithful members of a death cult? I think it has been exciting for them, for a while, and has given their lives a sense of urgency and perhaps a kind of meaning but, like all cultists, they’re being ground down. There’s too much personal sacrifice of liberties involved in maintaining Branch Covidian membership. It doesn’t help the dark cause, either, to see our “leaders” flouting the tenets of the new religion on a regular basis (e.g. 79-year-old President Biden spotted last weekend in Nantucket in a store with his face uncovered, despite the store having a large “Face Covering Required” sign on the door).

      Like all things, this too shall pass away. It’s just a matter of time. Hold the line and wait out the mass hysteria.

    To me, the fact that you have the guts to attack the covid narrative in former posts, and now even mentioning the mark of the beast without adoring it, makes you a very remarkable woman Gail. Never have met someone with a broad view like you before. Not online, not in person.

    Canadian gov’t pouring millions more into ‘voluntary’ COVID isolation sites

    Canadian gov’t pouring millions more into ‘voluntary’ COVID isolation sites

    Poland reported 29K new COVID cases, the highest in almost eight months, and 570 fatalities, on Wednesday. More alarming: the Health Ministry said 25% of the deaths were among vaccinated patients, mostly elderly people with comorbidities.

    Israel’s coronavirus czar Salman Zarka said the country should look at mandatory vaccination now that the omicron variant has emerged. “Mandatory vaccination needs to be considered, whether through legislation or otherwise, especially given the fact that not only is the pandemic here, but I fear it will get worse,” Zarka said on 103FM radio. He said he changed his mind following the appearance of omicron, which has been identified in several Israelis.

    As European countries from Germany, to Austria to the Netherlands tighten lockdown measures amid a surge in COVID cases (while deaths remain slightly elevated but more subdued), the continent’s unelected bureaucrat in chief, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, asked during a speech on Wednesday that EU members consider adopting a vaccine mandate. All members should “think about” imposing mandates of their own in a coordinated fashion that’s in keeping with the Continent’s new approach.

    Early rumours, that unvaccinated Austrians would face substantial fines or incarceration, have been confirmed by draft legislation leaked to the Austrian press.

    The plan is for local authorities to summon the recalcitrant to vaccination appointments. Those who don’t accept these binding invitations will receive a second summons, and further refusal will result in a fine of 3,600 Euros, or four weeks of incarceration. Repeated refusals could result in a doubling of the fine, to 7,200 Euros. Higher fines can also be imposed if the refusal to accept vaccination is deemed to cause “a serious danger to someone’s life or health.” The law is envisioned to remain in force for at least three years.

    We now go to our corresponded wise mike for a comment – mike?

    ‘But there is no harm in getting vaccinated in order to fit in with the governmental views and be able to get around more easily than the unvaccinated’

    Thank you for this valuable insight wise mike… next up … wise mike has a titillating half our special called ‘The Pleasure of Lambing’ with his little Mary.

    Lambing is like Menudo… once they are no longer lambs you trade them in

    • Student says:

      Yes FE I’ve seen the same.
      Salman Zarka said that.
      The complete phrase is also about the tiny number of not-vaccinated in Israel which is described as a problem, but the point is that the Omicron variant has been only found in vaccinated people so far either in Israel or in Europe…
      This is what happened for instance in Oslo. A party with 100 people, all vaccinated and tested, who then have been found infected with Omicron due to the party.

      Anyway Zarka full phrase (if useful) is: ‘Mandatory vaccination needs to be considered, whether through legislation or otherwise, especially given the fact that not only is the pandemic here, but I fear it will get worse, coronavirus czar Salman Zarka said on 103FM radio. He said he changed his mind following the appearance of the new variant, which has been identified in several Israelis. About 680,000 of Israel’s 9.3 million people haven’t been inoculated at all, Zarka said.’

      The tiny number is a problem, while the problem are the vaccinated found positive in Israel (including a Doctor who attended a congress with all vaccinated).
      People have been succesfully led to believe nonsense.

  20. Fast Eddy says:

    There weren’t a lot of 15-year-olds who were vaccinated before the EUA rolled out. Two of them died of cardiac issues within days of their shot. Should we be concerned? Absolutely! Here’s why…

    Very few 15-year-olds were vaccinated prior to the EUA. The fact that there are two death reports made in VAERS that were made for kids who were illegally vaccinated suggests that these vaccines are extremely deadly for kids. VAERS is typically 41 times under-reported, so there could be more than 80 deaths among the illegally vaccinated group. But even if you don’t believe that, just two deaths in a relatively small number of vaccinations should be extremely troubling, especially when you look at the historical death rates in VAERS for this age group and these symptoms (and considering the VAERS stats are based on a normal 50% vaccination rate). This isn’t bad luck. It’s consistent with all the other data for all age ranges.

  21. Fast Eddy says:

    Dear (scientist!!!) and Practice Manager 🙂 – further to our discussion regarding the risks of Myocarditis and your request for ‘context’ on the VAERS report I have gone back and found the following data out of the US. Over a 10-year period ending 2016, 3.15 billion doses of vaccines were administered in the USA. Let’s use an average of 325 million per year for more recent years due to population increases.

    Just over 400M doses of the covid vaccines have been administered in the past year so call it 725M total vaccine doses have been deployed.

    The data on the chart below is not up to date – VAERS is currently showing 14,428 reports of myocarditis/pericarditis In previous years myocarditis barely registers. In fact you could add up all cases of myocarditis from the previous years and still you’d have nowhere near the number from 2021

    I would also note that the last time a government attempted to rush a vaccine into production, 25% of Americans received the shot, 25 died and hundreds developed severe side effects and the vaccine deployment was terminated

    VAERS is reporting just under 20,000 deaths from the Covid Vaccines and 97,000+ hospitalizations related to Covid vaccines with over 900,000 adverse events associated with Covid.

    FYI – roughly 50,000 Americans died in the Vietnam War and that lasted over a decade. This is a Blood Bath of epic proportions

    You indicated to me that you are a scientist and that you require context – I trust this provides good context?

    I suggest that you make your patients aware that the covid vaccines are killing and maiming people on a level beyond anything we have ever experienced in the history of vaccinology.

    BTW – yet another of my mates who is a very fit 32 year old athlete in Queenstown was forced into taking the vaccine yesterday or lose his job – so he went ahead. I saw him just before our appointment and he was fine – he pinged me last night saying he was experiencing shooting pains in his chest. As mentioned my mate in Hong Kong has severe myocarditis and may require heart surgery – he went from running 20k to barely being able to walk up some stairs. His life is ruined. I know 3 others with less serious heart damage – I also know a person in Canada who had blood clotting in her lungs – spent 4 days in hospital (June) and she is still unable to work or get around because she cannot breathe properly.

    These are all previously healthy people who would have likely experienced covid as a flu. As we can see – young healthy people are at minimal risk from covid – I was rather surprised that you were unaware the average age of a Covid death is 82. Surely as a scientist this is something you would be aware of?

    mike are you a scientist?

    But HE is a humble entity. Titles are for the feeble minded types… calling HIMSELF a scientist would be below him… an embarrassment.

    Oh and btw she needs to fill FE’s f789ing Hydrochoroquine request… she initially could not find it on the computer so was unsure if it was available in NZ… now she’s messaging FE saying the govt does not recommend it as there are better anti-malarials… FE has responded reiterating the others bother his stomach and give him headaches so he wants the Hydro … no response as of yet

    Being a scientist she may have concluded that FE is anti-vax and wants the Hydro for other purposes. Scientists are so clever!!! Perhaps Pfizer will bring in back in to head office to revive her career.

    Dear Gail, I have been an avid reader of your work for many years and sincerely appreciate your contribution to our understanding of how the world functions. I quit commenting a few years ago (2015) because I realized that I was focused on attacking other commenters that I adjudged to be simpletons and, therefore, was disruptive. I knew when I saw your reference to Rev. 18, that ridicule was certain from some commenters.
    I have been an intense student of the Bible for about 72 years; I am now 88 years old. I have devoted little or no time to the consideration of Spiritual End Times because I consider such to be excessively ambiguous. However, I believe, as you have so well presented, that we are in Physical End Times. For the first time in human existence, we have reached the limits of growth. Cessation of growth will lead to the inevitable and irrevocable end of life as we know it, with accompanying horrors beyond our imagination. Additionally, we now have multiple instruments that are capable of exterminating humanity.
    I have striven and continue to strive to prepare my family and close associates to be capable and worthy of being a part of the remnant if extermination proves not to be the end. Thank you again for your brilliant insight!

  23. Mirror on the wall says:

    That is a lush article, Gail. I will give it a full reading tonight.

    Btw. did you intend ‘transpiration’ (plants) or ‘transportation’?

    Some observations on collapse as foreseen in Rev. 18:

    – The goods are present, but ‘no one buys their cargoes anymore’, which implies a lack of demand, presumably due to affordability, which would imply an increased cost of production and transport, of delivery of the final items.

    – The cargoes are globalised, and ‘every sort’ of thing is available, ‘your merchants were the world’s important people’, ‘all the nations were led astray’, ‘all the nations have drunk’, ‘the kings of the earth’.

    – The collapse is final, and the lush material economy is ‘vanished, never to be recovered’, ‘with such violence… never to be found again’.

    – The collapse is sudden, ‘in one day her plagues will overtake her, death, mourning and famine’, ‘in one hour she has been brought to ruin’. (‘Plagues’ is resonant these days.)

    – It is total, ‘no worker of any trade will ever be found in you again, the sound of a millstone’. (At least in this civilisation? Back to hunter-gathering and primitive agriculture?)

    – The best thing to do is to get out and give the commercial hubs some distance, ‘so that you will not receive any of her plagues’. (Good luck eating &c.)

    Other possible readings:

    – Humans are left ill-disposed, ‘a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal’, and serious disorder is coming, ‘pay her back double for what she has done’; the whole thing is going to burn, ‘she will be consumed by fire’. (The layer of ash from the cities from the ‘Late Bronze Age Collapse’ can still be seen from space.)

    – The elites are going to be out of there, ‘they will stand far off and cry’, ‘will stand far off’.

    – The fertility rate is left collapsed, ‘the voice of bridegroom and bride’.

    • Mirror on the wall says:

      There has been ‘much weeping’ among the Irish commentariat this week over plummeting total fertility rates (TRF). The TRF has fallen to 1.4 kid per woman in Q2 2021, which is 2/3 of the replacement level of 2.1. So the number of births would fall by 55.5% over two generations, and by 80.2% over four, without fresh input.

      Ireland is heavily reliant on a constant flow of fresh incomers to maintain even its present birth rate. The general consensus seems to be that the current fall in many countries is congruent with trends in recent years, and that the TRF will not recover after covid.

      The story is similar in UK, with the TRF for UK-born women down to 1.50 in 2020 (and lower in 2021), and 34.8% of UK births are to women born outside the UK; ethnic Brits are down to 61% of UK births; Scottish TRF is lower yet, and it has fewer incoming women.

      It remains to be see whether the TRF will revert to pre-current levels after collapse, or whether it will continue on its downward trajectory. The TRF pattern ‘on the way down’ of industrial civilisation may be different to that ‘on the way up’.

      > Ireland’s birth rate falls off the cliff

      …. The Irish birth rate in quarter 2 of 2021 was the lowest ever recorded: 9.2 per thousand population, equivalent to a total fertility rate (average number of children a woman would have in her life) of 1.4…. In 2019, it was 1.7.

      It is worth noting that In April-June last year, 77.5pc of babies were born to women with an Irish nationality. Non-Irish nationals represent 12.9pc of the total population, but accounted for 22.5pc of births. They are having more children per head than the Irish. [A younger population anyway.]

      • Falling birth rates usually have to do with the cost of having children being too high for families. Or the jobs situation being too unstable, so future income is in doubt. Or taxes make it too expensive to get married; I know that in the US, the taxes are generally higher on a married couple (both working) than they are if the two simply live together.

        • Mirror on the wall says:

          Marriages in Ireland have also ‘gone over the cliff’.

          Another issue is housing. The population is rapidly growing, and house building is not keeping pace. Rents are way up, particularly in Dublin, with older houses being converted into smaller apartments.

          None of that encourages youngsters to commit to a family life. They like to feel that they can afford a place of their own, with space for a family, and have plenty of money left over to raise it.

          The capitalist Irish State is happy to just get more workers in from abroad. It is cheaper than paying for kids to be raised, with the health and education costs and all the rest. Fresh workers from abroad are basically ‘ready to go.’

          The fewer the kids, the lower that state spending needs to be, on kids and house building. Fresh workers can spend rent on apartments, have few kids, and new workers can come in. It ‘makes sense’ from the ‘fiscal’ perspective of the state. Families are ‘pricey’ for the state.

          It is certainly not seen as an urgent ‘problem’. SF is making a fuss about housing but FF/ FG are not interested. (It is always a shame to see countryside lost to urban development, not that FF/G cares about that.)

          Ibid. > ‘Some 2,558 weddings took place in the second quarter of 2021 in Ireland. About half (50.8pc) compared to 2019.’

    Apologies if this is double-posted. Not sure if I just posted this or deleted it.

    Yesterday’s China-in-focus had an item on coal rationing by means of coal coupons, in Shanxi, China’s largest coal-producing region.

    Tight Coal Supplies Lead to Rationing in China

    • Using ration coupons for coal in China’s largest coal producing region sounds bizarre. This must mean that, in this region, homeowners are using coal directly for heating (and perhaps cooking) on a regular basis. Rationing would prevent people from storing up extra coal, in advance of winter. I know that there has been concern that citizens would set aside extra, to be certain to have enough, but that this practice would leave others without enough.

      I know that in some parts of China, “combined heat and power” is used. If this is done, coal is burned for electricity and waste heat is piped to nearby homes and businesses. This is an extremely efficient way of doing things, but I am fairly sure that its use is being reduced, partly because having a coal fired plant in the middle of a city adds a lot of pollution. If most of the power and heat came from these plants, the ration coupons wouldn’t seem to make sense.

      I am not certain how ration coupons would work for businesses. Are some businesses favored over others?

      I think peak coal is a real problem in China. China uses so much coal that it is impossible to import enough coal from outside. Also, coal transported overland for long distances is very expensive coal. It cannot be very affordable.

    We see continued improvement in infection rates in the vaccinated 80+ cohort, extending to the those in their 70s as well. This is very likely down to the booster campaign, and it’s more or less what we’d have expected: The vaccines provide protection that after some months appears to decay to the point of negative efficacy. The boosters then bring you back into positive territory, for a time.

    Of course the offending numbers are still greyed out.

    After the war, the top surviving German leaders were tried for Nazi Germany’s crimes. Their trial was held before an International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, Germany. Judges from the Allied powers—Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union, and the United States—presided over the hearing of 22 major Nazi criminals.

    Subsequently, the United States held 12 additional trials in Nuremberg of high-level officials of the German government, military, and SS as well as medical professionals and leading industrialists. The crimes charged before the Nuremberg courts were crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and conspiracy to commit any of the foregoing crimes.

    In all, 199 defendants were tried at Nuremberg, 161 were convicted and 37 were sentenced to death, including 12 of those tried by the IMT. The defendants generally acknowledged that the crimes they were accused of occurred but denied that they were responsible, as they were following orders from a higher authority.

    After almost 140 days of proceedings, including the testimony of 85 witnesses and the submission of almost 1,500 documents, the American judges pronounced their verdict on August 20, 1947. Sixteen of the doctors were found guilty. Seven were sentenced to death. They were executed on June 2, 1948.

  31. I see that Ugo Bardi has a new guest post up on the Seneca Effect. “The Twilight of the Narrative.”

    It, too, is talking about the sad state of the Mainstream Media. Among other things it says:

    “If you increase the supply of narratives, you get narrative inflation. The price to create a dominant narrative has gone up for a number of reasons but one is that the internet opened the floodgates on the flow of information and allowed multiple alternative narratives to be created. . .It may turn out that one of the consequences of allowing free and instant information is to destroy centralised narratives.”

    “The system itself is the thing people believe in. The public discourse which existed prior to the internet was facilitated through a system in which the media was known as the “fourth estate”. Its job was to hold government to account. Of course, this was not a perfect system but, as the saying goes, it seems it was better than all the others. It was certainly better than the system we have now where the media does not hold the government to account at all and is little more than a public relations branch of the government.”

    ” The dominant narrative is held in place by power, not by truth. By definition, the only thing that can “crack” it is another source of power.”

    “When politicians no longer feel like they need to accommodate the interests and opinions of a substantial proportion of the population you know the narrative is already fractured.”

    “Going forward I expect we’ll still have an “official narrative” but nobody will really believe it. That’s what is implied by the falling revenue numbers of the mainstream media channels. Will that lead to the disintegration of the state? Plato would have said yes. We may be about to test that theory.”

    • drb says:

      Yes, when you consider that the dominant power has been forced to turn the alternative press (or what used to be) into a basket of limited hangouts, you get a lot of people who could be agents for changed trapped into some dead end ideologically driven narrative. It could be the folks hanging out at the saker or at zerohedge. But, in the process you do get the narrative inflation Bardi alludes to. Limited hangouts are but a patch to a hole in a sinking boat.

    Love the title of this post!

    First things first… the visit to the doctor

    It started out very pleasantly as I asked for Hydrochloroquine for my trip to Irian Jaya… apparently that is not available in NZ (nor is Ivermectin)…. then she asked if I had other jabs and I said no I don’t need those I lived in the third world for 8 years and travelled extensively to some of the worst hell holes on the planet (which is true – Haiti after the quake… Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge’s dying days etc…) and I’ve never been sick.

    Had the covid vaccine?

    Nope. But I have some questions about that…

    First she takes Fast’s weight — then BP … 170 over 80 she says … very good … Yes I know Fast says — I have been training for the CEP Marathon and I can’t miss the finish line….. oh she says where’s that marathon … oh that’s in Irian Jaya … ahhhhh…..she says

    I ask what side effects they are seeing – she says loads of people are coming in and blaming everything on covid… so they don’t know if they are caused by the vax or not.

    She said they do have some concern about myocarditis in men – 1 in 1000 is what they are saying. Wow I say that’s a lot.

    I am thinking she’s maybe antivax telling me that.

    So I say the government says it’s rare – that doesn’t sound rare to me.

    No she says but the risks of myocarditis if you get covid are much higher — I did not mention I’ve seen data that disagrees with that as I didn’t want to have a head on collision … yet.

    So I just said I have over a dozen contacts in the UK and Indonesia who have had covid – it was experienced as a mild flu … with one it was a sort throat… don’t know anyone who’s had covid who has myocarditis. But I know 4 people who have been vaxxed who have it…

    Then… I inform her that I have done some research — put this paper in front of her and ask what she makes of it

    Initially she was a bit flustered… then she said oh well how many millions of covid vaxxes have been given out? I said 300m give or take.

    Well then given the volume it doesn’t look so bad 12,000….

    Yes but if you look at every other year for all vaxxes it’s a tiny number.

    And surely hundreds of millions of vaccines are given out every year.

    If you add up every year on that chart surely we are talking many billions … yet if you aggregate all the myocarditis reports they’d be nowhere near 12,000.

    More flustered … you need to put it in perspective she says.

    I say it looks in perspective to me – 14,000 vs a fraction of that even if you add up every other vaccine over the past 30 years.

    Then she says ‘I’m a scientist and this is just raw data it’s meaningless to me’

    I then show her the deaths and inform her that with swine flu 150M doses were given – 50 deaths reported – they shut it down…. Now you are a smart person I say (she’s a scientist!!! — working as a GP in a clinic in buttf789 nowhere Queenstown)… so if we do the numbers we are on 14,000 deaths … on 300M doses vs 50 deaths on 150M doses…

    Why don’t we shut this down?

    Now very flustered and tells me that I don’t have to get it …

    To which I respond that I came her for clarification and you are telling me my data from the CDC is bullshit … you are dismissing legitimate concerns about the safety of this vaccine…

    It all got a bit heated at this point and she stood up to signal this was over (or perhaps she was about to call security — but then realized she’s not working in the Pfizer lab anymore and is stationed in some shitty clinic just north of nowhere and there ain’t no security… I do wonder if she was scared… she was a skinny old little thing… and I betcha she ain’t never had no patient like Fast.. more used to worshippers)… and off I went… extremely pleased with my performance…

    I did record the entire session and listened to it on the drive home … I am giving myself a gold medal for that performance… I replayed the ‘But I’m a scientist’ part a few times…

    Hey mike norm dunc….

      UPDATE: My buddy who resisted till the very last day the poison but gave in to keep his job … and ended up with chest pain after his injection … was pushing some carts around at work this morning and was experiencing shortness of breathe… he has gone off sick.

      This is a guy who plays semi pro hockey in Europe — he is young and very fit. And now he is gassed pushing around some carts…

    • Tim Groves says:

      At least she said you don’t have to get it. Donkey Face has not commanded that yet.

      On the front lines, the Greeks, the Germans, the Austrians, and by some accounts the Australian Aborigines are getting backed up against the wall over this. We are going to have an exciting 2022. I predict that not all of us will see the year out and of those of us who do, I’m not sure we will be having turkey for Christmas.

      • The Austrian case is interesting, if they can get low hundred thousands crowd apparently now (that means equivalent of millions in Germany or other comparatively larger country). Moreover there is some delayed momentum going on, most Austrians are absolutely in state of incapacitated shock from the recent coup deleting their fine PM.. so chances are they could regroup in reasonable short time and mount even bigger protests or non compliance action of sorts. Obviously the default goal was to crush the will and spirit – keep the rudderless people sitting home, so lets see how this turns out eventually..

      • Fast Eddy says:

        What if… they force you … and you say to the injector… if this goes bad for me… I have already got your address and the names of your kids… and when I get unhinged… I GET really unhinged… and I may come looking for payback…

        You might have trouble finding someone to put the needle in if you are convincing enough.

        I’ve pretty much been thrown out of one doctor’s office for a lot less.

        hahahaha… norm… do you think Fast Eddy is being… rude… unreasonable???

        • nope

        • Tim Groves says:

          I was looking for that Solzhenitsyn quote that wonders if things might have been different if instead of cowering in their rooms waiting for a knock at the door they had organized ambushes in the passageway ….. when I came across this from Vladimir Putin in 2008.

          Putin said of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: “Through his works and his entire life he inoculated our society against tyranny in all its forms.”

          Makes me wonder, which Covid Jab would Solzhenitsyn have recommended?

          • Given the grandioze people-grinder past century+ experience for most Russians (..wasn’t Vlad’s babushka devote orthodox during the darkest days..) he can’t completely dismiss Solzhenitsyn, but at the same time .ru govs and academia (not mentioning public at large) are slowly cleaning Stalin’s reputation and legacy from some of the cheap dirt placed on later by traitors and dimwits such as Khrushchev and Gorbi..

        • They game played the scenarios thoroughly enough.
          Hence the need for repeated and newly re-issued passports.

          Surely, apart from the key goal of gene-mal-therapy stuff at each step knocking down the immunity system that above consideration of weeding out “corruption – non compliance” was on the top list during planning evidently as well.

          Certainly, it’s a very risky proposition in say +70% type of compliant country already, they will report you to police immediately.

          And obviously there are also offers which can’t be easily turned down, mafia dons and people willing to pay under the table say ~5-25x amount of yearly salary to said doctor? Well these are very few in every society, so let them have it.. so what..

  34. Hanz says:

    Hi Gail, would it be possible to explain quickly how you got the figure 8 graph? Is it based on some data like the one from rystad here p.16 (

    • I checked back to see exactly how I calculated the amounts in this chart. I was aiming for more or less the downslope that some people concerned about climate change seem to want. I calculated it by first picking an end point in 2050 that might represent what renewables might represent at that time. (Actually, without fossil fuels, I expect renewables other than firewood would go to zero pretty quickly.)

      I then picked an annual percentage decline between 2020 and 2050 that would get me to that point. It turned out that I needed to assume that energy production was reduced by 6.6% each year (actually, I multiplied the previous year by 0.934).

      I don’t think we really know how quickly energy production will fall. I doubt the decline will be as smooth as shown. Things like water limits play a role. Failing governments do as well. I know that Dennis Meadows has said that the Limits to Growth model can’t be counted on to predict the shape of the slope after the downturn starts. My estimate is similarly uncertain; it is basically a guess.

      BP data says that in 2020, EU energy consumption dropped by 8.5%. It dropped by 7.7% in the US. China’s energy consumption actually increased by 2.1% in 2020. Worldwide, energy consumption dropped by 4.5% in 2020. I am sure that there will be unevenness by part of the world going forward in the decline in energy consumption.

  35. Jacob Edward Larkin says:

    Great post, Gail. I wonder how things will look post-collapse? I agree that we are presently in a frightening situation, but we hear almost nothing about our dire predicament from our media and political sources, for reasons you’ve described. My fear is that it will come upon the great majority of us with little warning.

  36. Pintada says:


    Ive watched this site morph from one of reasonable analysis of the already past limits to growth to the poor nonsense that you are spouting now. You have simply lost it in the last couple years. Anyway, I’m sorry that your mind has left you. You used to be one of my go-to bloggers, now … Revelation?!?!?

    Too bad.

    • Pintada, The usage of a religious text here was topical and made the point much clearer. I believe that if you were to put your views on religion aside and address the purpose for the religious passages, you would change your view.

      • Tim Groves says:

        I find it ironic that Pintada would criticize Gail for alluding to “religious” themes and questioning her mental faculties while him/her/itself unironically employing the religious initialism OMG! (Oh my God!)

        I also find it telling that Pintada and Hubbs among others are not simply in disagreement with what Gail has written but are upset to the point where they can’t contain their contempt. This behavior is the mark of the zealot, the fanatic, the Chauvinist, the tiny-minded and habitually-offended believer down the ages. If these two possess enough intellectual fortitude to perform self analysis, they would do well to think long and hard on why they think they have the right to talk to anybody that way.

            Ah yes, God-botherers.

            I hope you are having a very nice weekend and that your Sunday morning will not be bothered by any of them ringing your doorbell or coming up to you in the park.

            • you misunderstand me Tim

              i quite enjoy (and miss) their sunday morning visits, except when they interrupt my horizontal jogging.

              not down on believers at all–in fact, before lockdown i had a particularly scrumptious believer at my door—our eyes met, and i just said, ‘I’ve been saving myself for you to save me’ —-she just burst out laughing, and we parted nicely with a mutual chuckle.

  41. drb says:

    I am glad that our little subthread on spirituality in the last post became a post by our invaluable host. Yes, you need the spirituality angle, but you also have to think about being positioned to become a useful member of the societies that will form. In those, money does not count but help you provided to individuals and whole community alike does. It is too early for me to tell what I am trying to do, but I am probably a few months ahead of the main spirituality wave and I will eventually post about it.

    A minor point about how the economy collapses. Gail’s picture is valid only for capitalistic societies. In command economies, the dynamics are a bit different as the state can allocate more resources ahead of time. Effectively, Russia’s development of the Arctic now is their own Manhattan project, and it is done 30 years before getting to the point where the West is at now. Even after energy will start to become scarce locally there are ways to slow the collapse.

    • Mike Roberts says:

      I don’t think there was much in the way of spirituality in the post, just attempts to turn texts from centuries or millennia ago into some kind of prophecy but without showing any relevance to what we’re actually facing. If someone wrote something about demand collapse, a long time ago, how does that inform our situation now? Should we be worshipping some entity or performing rituals to get through that collapse?

      • Fast Eddy says:

        I take that back

      • Tim Groves says:

        You also think that “there is no harm in getting vaccinated in order to fit in with the governmental views and be able to get around more easily than the unvaccinated.”

        What’s your view on agreeing to conditions akin to accepting the Mark of the Beast in order to buy and sell stuff and also to be allowed to labor?

        And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

      • drb says:

        It is complex. The new spirituality will be intertwined with the new society. With this post Gail put it on the map. It is too early to flesh out the details. I am going to say that, of the existing Western religions, Shia Islam and Christian Orthodox look best positioned to survive, as they emphasize collective needs and actions. East Asian societies do that as well, but I am too ignorant of their philosophy to comment.

      drb, yes, Russia makes a wise move developing arctic resources. I wonder what other last ditch resource grabs are going to be made? Antarctic coal, oil, natural gas?

      As to spirituality they mass of hard hard labor will be impossible for most Americans to adjust to. There is a group near me
      that works. They grow much of their own food. They have wood fire heated green houses as the growing season is short here. They make their own buildings but they do buy their materials from “the system”. They make some of their clothes but do not have textile mills. They will fall more gracefully than most.

      They also know how to work the system. They pay no property tax, no income tax yet retire on social security and medicare. They are best friends with the local police and politicians.

  42. Sam says:

    Oil prices have been too low for some time. But I keep reading about production going up; why aren’t we seeing oil shortages yet?

    They seem to paint a rosy picture for oil production

    • The US was the close to the only producer that was increasing oil production, at least up until 2019. When I look at EIA data, 2021 US oil and gas production are still down quite a bit from 2019 levels.

      With respect to international data, EIA shows total crude oil and lease condensate production amounted to 83.6 million barrels per day in November 2019. As of the latest month shown (August 2021), crude oil and lease condensate amounted to 77.3 million barrels per day. That is a decrease of 6.3 million barrels per day.

      There is a tendency of news outlets to hype every bit of good news. They don’t say much about how it fits into the world picture, except when they are trying to hype the level to which they think oil prices will rise. Low oil supplies are reflected in strange ways, such as governments banning international travel in certain categories.

    Kudos, Gail! I liked your relirious comments. Thanks!

  44. Student says:

    Thank you Gail.
    It is a fantastic article which resumes many of your general considerations about economics, society, civilization and so on.
    It is an article I will surely read minimum a couple of times in order to be sure to understand it well, thank you.
    I’m only worried that this part: ‘if people can convince themselves that it is OK to ostracize the unvaccinated, then maybe the move down the collapse will go more smoothly’ that will be taken as a positive feedback by the rulers of the ‘current narrative’ in order to insist going on towards the probably coming slaugher of the not-vaccinated.
    Or better towards a slaugher of the ‘not-enough-vaccinated’, because if one needs 3 jabs, like now, and one has only 2 jabs done, one becomes a not-vaccinated as well.
    That is something that people still don’t understand.
    So the category of the not-vaccinated is very labile and it is like the game of the ‘missing chair’ (please see link below for those who don’t know the game).
    A chair is missing to every set of the game and people get out progressively.
    I hope that people will realize who are their real enemies.

    • Yorchichan says:

      According to this article in the daily mail, uptake of the booster is not great amongst frontline NHS staff:

      The data is out of date, because it relates to the start of November.

      It is unclear why so many frontline staff have not got their Covid boosters, with vaccine hesitancy unlikely to blame considering the vast majority have already had their first two Covid vaccines.

      I suspect the fact frontline staff are most exposed to the vaccine injured has rather a lot to do with the low uptake.

    • Azure Kingfisher says:

      Under these terms and conditions, no one can ever be “fully vaccinated.”

      • Student says:

        Yes, Martin, it is not anymore a status (being vaccinated or not-vaccinated), but it will be a process (therefore: enter the process of constant vaccination, becoming automatically not-vaccinated if one misses the latest vaccination).
        People who enter thIs process should understand that, without the latest vaccination, they will become automatically ‘not-vaccinated’, while at the moment people consider the existence of two different and separated groups.
        This false belief allow people to feel free to hate the other group, expecially vaccinated towards not-vaccinated.
        While the difference between a group and the other is very labile.
        If people would understand this aspect, it would create more solidarity between the two groups.

    “Some people believe that Revelation 12 describes the Antichrist; that is, the polar opposite of Christ. Before the world comes to an end, Revelation 12 seems to predict a great fight against this Antichrist, which Christ wins. I could imagine Anthony Fauci being the Antichrist.”

    Edit: “I could imagine Donald Trump being the Antichrist.”
    There, I fixed it for you!

    • There are presently quite a few candidates for the Antichrist, but the Antichrist is an energy – those candidates embody the Antichrist energy, it’s not a single person.

          • Kowalainen are you Fast Eddy’s other handle? You be miseralable, fine. Don’t project it on the globe. Who exported Globalisation and entrapped everyone (the globe) in it? The developing world will get on quite well by themselves without your “First World” impositions. How many people do you see here commenting on affairs/ issues? How relevant are imperial hand-wringing within imperial nations to them? The “global collape” is happening because globalisation (which has imposed upon the world) is collapsing, my guess is the developing world can’t wait to go tback to their own business on their own terms, post-First World collapse.

              Plummeting birth rates is a sure sign of “thanks, but no thanks”. Don’t wanna deal with the ordeals of being an useful idiot in a rapidly disintegrating machine.

              Why not jack up the uncontrolled mass 3’rd world immigration instead? I got no attachments to speak of and the world needs MOAR debt and consumerism to keep the ‘asset’ air castle inflated.

              Living within the means is always a possibility you know. Having zero debt and carving out a decent existence without the stress of ‘competing’ with the joneses or jockeying with the schmucks in the crony club. No?

              But it surely provides ‘meaning’ if none else is to be found within the generic mental processes of the cloner herd. The default stance is Will to ‘best’ You.

              But don’t you worry; evolution will surely take care of the “predicament” in the worst possible way. Just check out the fossil records and ruins of the past for evidence of that.

              Within temptation is the truth of a species. I salute our silly “gods” for pointing out that with lucid clarity.

              I am all for temptations and smiles.

              Wow now that is quite the compliment .. The Kow-Man has got to be pleased with this development

            • Kowalainen says:

              FE, I wasn’t sure if it was intended as a compliment or not so I tried to interpret the rest of the unstructured word salad the best I could and ignored the insinuation.

              Now that I think of it…

              Compliment… It must have been a compliment.

        Looking back years ago and comparing to what we have today, the quality of trolls is getting from bac to worse… it can be easily spotted on the first post. Perhaps AI is not improving or the salary paid to trolls is too low ? (Like low oil prices Huttons producers)?

    I think this was your best post. I think you have finally come around to realizing that covid-19 is a scam as I proclaimed back in March of 2020.

    Really enjoyed this one, great job.

    • shastatodd says:

      A scam? Do you believe in chemtrails too? (sigh)

    • Mike Roberts says:

      I don’t think Gail thinks COVID-19 is a scam but she does think it’s been used by governments to control people and to give a pretext for lowering resource use.

      • Tim Groves says:

        Where as you think “there is no harm in getting vaccinated in order to fit in with the governmental views and be able to get around more easily than the unvaccinated.”

        Perhaps you’d like to expand on your views on apartheid, or should l I say segregation? For instance, do you think the unvaccinated should be banned from all public transportation, or should they be allowed the privilege of sitting at the back of the bus or riding in the third class train carriage along with smokers, livestock, and bicycles?

        And what about concentration camps for the unvaccinated? Do you think they should be allowed to have soft toilet paper, or should they get by on the cheap shiny stuff that slides off your …. ?

        In any case, you seem to be in favor of a two-tier society in which basic human rights are no longer basic but depend on compliance with the government’s current ordre du jour. Would that be a fair assessment of you views?

        Much better mike — two in a row below 3 lines … keep up the good work

  48. Yes, it is very possible, Gail. Metaphysically we are almost certainly in THE End Times as far as major energy cycles are concerned (the 26,000 year cycle especially) and that means it’s very likely that we are also in the Biblical End Times (by my estimations). Have recently published something on that:

    • Thanks for your interesting post. You seem to have put several time lines together and all of them seem to lead to the conclusion that the current time is a time of transition. This is one paragraph you wrote about the current transition time:

      During this in-between, low consciousness phase, it’s up to individuals to not only maintain and grow their personal consciousness but to engage in laying the foundations of the New World, either in thought or in practice. Maintaining internal structure through consciousness is, therefore, essential for maintaining external order in the midst of the chaos and for preserving the boundaries that would normally provide safety and security, because many of those boundaries are in the process of collapsing due to wide-scale corruption and animosity, resulting in turmoil and upheaval.

      We are indeed in a time when things seem to be falling apart. The sources we used to depend upon are becoming less reliable. We seem to be getting to a time of turmoil and upheaval.

      • Thanks for the article.

        The general mood in the world is changing quickly, I noticed in recent days, non sensationalist quality content yt channels like the Duran (geopolitics) or Heresy Fin (markets) are starting to talk about civ collapse in terms of the energy angle as well..

        • Z says:

          All of the signs of collapse are there…..even if you never considered the energy angle.

          All of the institutions have become corrupted and hallowed out shells.

          The pervasive myth of equality has run rampant and is found to be “wanting”….equality is a myth.

          The same goes for “progress”….no one ever asks what are we progress towards?….progress is a myth.

          All of these ruses and myths are being put to the test and they are being exposed for what they are.

          Much of this civilization since 1776 for the USA where it states all men are created equal will be shown to be a failure. All of this civilization will be swept away since it was built on a philosophical and moral foundation of sand.

            Good point.

            Seems we aspire to go where no man has gone before … when we can’t even get past the Van Allan Belts… hahahahaaha

            Or maybe we aspire to spend our days on Social Media and watching Tee Vee… we have arrived … there is nothing nore…

            • Z says:

              Yes, the moon landings were a massive hoax.

              I remember a delegation from I think the Netherlands or someplace coming to the US asking for moon rocks….the US gave them “moon rocks” and the delegation gave it to researchers and they tested them and they turned out to be petrified wood.


            • you are trying to out-eddy eddy in the BS department

      • Christopher says:

        Looks like a phase transition of society is coming quite close now. The question is if the new phase will be very different or totally different from the old phase. That is, will the next phase be worldofhanumans neofeudalism or more along the line of FEs ripping of faces/CEP.

        • Fast Eddy says:

          If the CEP fails you will have 8B people without food electricity petrol medicine etc…

          I will leave it to you to draw conclusions

          • Michael Le Merchant says:

            That’s why we should put all our faith in Saint Fauci to carry out the CEP.

              ‘But there is no harm in getting vaccinated in order to fit in with the governmental views and be able to get around more easily than the unvaccinated.’

          • machival66 says:

            Eddy enough with your BS already. You keep talking about 8 B having no food in case CEP fails. But you ignore that 30% of all food is wasted AND you ignore that 60% of the 8 B are obese and a lack of food would actually be beneficial. Instead of illogical scare nonsense try to use the brain for once. Peak oil will not come until 2050 at least. Opec and IEA say so and they would not be able to hide the truth. There are trillions of barrels of oil waiting to be converted into food. The world has never had do much food in the history of mankind. Reading your nonsense about lack of food is dumb. Food is also the cheapest it has ever been.

            • it’s not the availability of food that’s the problem so much as getting it to where hungry people happen to be.

              If hungry people can’t get food, they try to get to where the food is–hence mass migration

              cheap food is a direct product of cheap energy (it IS cheap energy basically). Energy isn’t cheap anymore, only debt is cheap (for a while longer)

              I think global reserves are at something over 1 trn barrels of oil, not ‘trillions’–converting it into food requires even more energy input to do it.

              The world has never had so much food, true, but neither has there been so many people wanting to eat it.

              Food production and people production are constantly in a game of leapfrog. There are now very few nations actively exporting major quantities of basic foodstuffs

              Oh wow.. I was just about to make a coffee to get into gear….

              I actually re-read it thinking to myself… did I miss the sarcasm? And I am still thinking — no way … this has to be a leg pull… nobody can be this stoooopid… well actually billions are but how would someone who ‘thinks’ like this make it onto OFW?

              Perhaps you are a friend of norm dunc and mike and they brought you along?

              This is possibly the stoooopidest comment ever made on OFW… Pure stooopidity genius… It is unassailable stooopidity …. comprehensive idi-ocy… the pinnnacle of stooopidity… the Everest of MOREONISM….

              Only a very special person could come up with this .. by special I mean someone with special needs (previously classified as profoundly ment ally re tard ed… but rebranded to be more palatable)…

              Let’s just leave it at that … and hoist your comment and your username to the rafters of OFW … and retire you…

              We salute you! What an achievement!!!

      To summarize… bang a tambourine … sing Imagine … and conceptualize transitioning to utopia… really wish hard…

      And it will happen!!!

      Do NOT look at this

      • The “Build Back Better” crowd are the ones conceptualizing transitioning to utopia. BTW, how’s freedom looking in “anti-apartheid” Kiwi-land? Remember all the anti-Apartheid campaigns by yourselves and Australia in the 80’s and 90’s? Where’s Bono and Bob Geldoff when you need them, hey? They could always organize a fundraiser or two and some global concerts to get you out of your shackels … Oh, wait it seems the Irish just love their servittude – all vaxxed-up too. I guess you’ll just have to wait it out then, much worse than S.A. apartheid, but with some sanctions placed upon you for a few decades, who knows … oh, wait, that’s not gonna happen either, is it? Do you think it’s some kind of karma, perhaps?

      Good articles and data EnergyShifts. Agree that everything moves in cycles. Your analysis seems sound and accounts for the madness we’re seeing everywhere.

      Agree also that personal spiritual evolution is the main game right now.
