Why No Politician Is Willing to Tell Us the Real Energy Story

No politician wants to tell us the real story of fossil fuel depletion. The real story is that we are already running short of oil, coal and natural gas because the direct and indirect costs of extraction are reaching a point where the selling price of food and other basic necessities needs to be unacceptably high to make the overall economic system work. At the same time, wind and solar and other “clean energy” sources are nowhere nearly able to substitute for the quantity of fossil fuels being lost.

This unfortunate energy story is essentially a physics problem. Energy per capita and, in fact, resources per capita, must stay high enough for an economy’s growing population. When this does not happen, history shows that civilizations tend to collapse.

Figure 1. World fossil fuel energy consumption per capita, based on data of BP’s 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy.

Politicians cannot possibly admit that today’s world economy is headed for collapse, in a way similar to that of prior civilizations. Instead, they need to provide the illusion that they are in charge. The self-organizing system somehow leads politicians to put forward reasons why the changes ahead might be desirable (to avert climate change), or at least temporary (because of sanctions against Russia).

In this post, I will try to try to explain at least a few of the issues involved.

[1] Citizens around the world can sense that something is very wrong. It looks like the economy may be headed for a serious recession in the near term.

Figure 2. Index of consumer sentiment and news heard of company changes as reported by the University of Michigan Survey of Consumers, based on preliminary indications for August 2022.

Consumer sentiment is at an extraordinarily low level, worse than during the 2008-2009 great recession according to a chart (Figure 2) shown on the University of Michigan Survey of Consumers website. According to the same website, nearly 48% of consumers blame inflation for eroding their standard of living. Food prices have risen significantly. Over the past year, the cost of car ownership has escalated, as has the cost of buying or renting a home.

The situation in Europe is at least as bad, or worse. Citizens are worried about possibly “freezing in the dark” this winter if electricity generation cannot be maintained at an adequate level. Natural gas supplies, mostly purchased from Russia by pipeline, are less available and high-priced. Coal is also high-priced. Because of the fall of the Euro relative to the US dollar, the price of oil in euros is as high as it was in 2008 and 2012.

Figure 3. Inflation-adjusted Brent crude oil price in US dollars and euros, in chart by the US Energy Information Administration, as published in EIA’s August 2022 Short Term Energy Outlook.

Many other countries, besides those in the Eurozone, are experiencing low currencies relative to the dollar. Some examples include Argentina, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Turkey, Japan, and South Korea.

China has problems with developers of condominium homes for its citizen. Many of these homes cannot be delivered to purchasers as promised. As a protest, buyers are withholding payments on their unfinished homes. To make matters worse, the prices of condominium homes have started to fall, leading to a loss of value of these would-be investments. All of this could lead to serious problems for the Chinese banking industry.

Even with these major problems, central banks in the US, the UK and the Eurozone are raising target interest rates. The US is also implementing Quantitative Tightening, which also tends to raise interest rates. Thus, central banks are intentionally raising the cost of borrowing. It doesn’t take much insight to see that the combination of price inflation and higher borrowing costs is likely to force consumers to cut back on spending, leading to recession.

[2] Politicians will avoid talking about possible future economic problems related to inadequate energy supply.

Politicians want to get re-elected. They want citizens to think that everything is OK. If there are energy supply problems, they need to be framed as being temporary, perhaps related to the war in Ukraine. Alternatively, any issue that arises will be discussed as if it can easily be fixed with new legislation and perhaps a little more debt.

Businesses also want to minimize problems. They want citizens to place orders for their goods and services, without the fear of being laid off. They would like the news media to publish stories saying that any economic dip is likely to be very mild and temporary.

Universities don’t mind problems, but they want the problems to be framed as solvable ones that will offer their students opportunities for jobs that will pay well. A near-term, unsolvable predicament is not helpful at all.

[3] What is wrong is a physics problem. The operation of our economy requires energy of the correct type and the right quantity.

The economy is something that grows through the “dissipation” of energy. Examples of dissipation of energy include the digestion of food to give energy to humans, the burning of fossil fuels, and the use of electricity to power a light bulb. A rise in world energy consumption is highly correlated with growth in the world economy. Falling energy consumption is associated with economic contraction.

Figure 4. Correlation between world GDP measured in “Purchasing Power Parity” (PPP) 2017 International $ and world energy consumption, including both fossil fuels and renewables. GDP is as reported by the World Bank for 1990 through 2021 as of July 26, 2022; total energy consumption is as reported by BP in its 2022 Statistical Review of World Energy.

In physics terms, the world economy is a dissipative structure, just as all plants, animals and ecosystems are. All dissipative structures have finite lifespans, including the world economy.

This finding is not well known because academic researchers seem to operate in ivory towers. Researchers in economic departments aren’t expected to understand physics and how it applies to the economy. In fairness to academia, the discovery that the economy is a dissipative structure did not occur until 1996. It takes a long time for findings to filter through from one department to another. Even now, I am one of a very small number of people in the world writing about this issue.

Also, economic researchers are not expected to study the history of the many smaller, more-localized civilizations that have collapsed in the past. Typically, the population of these smaller civilizations increased at the same time as the resources used by the population started to degrade. The use of technology, such as dams to redirect water flows, may have helped for a while, but eventually this was not enough. The combination of declining availability of high quality resources and increasing population tended to leave these civilizations with little margin for dealing with the bad times that can be expected to occur by chance. In many cases, such civilizations collapsed after disease epidemics, a military invasion, or a climate fluctuation that led to a series of crop failures.

[4] Many people have been confused by common misunderstandings regarding how an economy really works.

[a] Standard economics models foster the belief that the economy can continue to grow without a corresponding increase in energy supply.

When economic models are designed with labor and capital being the important inputs, energy supply doesn’t seem to be needed, at all.

[b] People seem to understand that legislation capping apartment rents will stop the building of new apartments, but they do not make the same connection with steps taken to hold down fossil fuel prices.

If efforts are made to bring down the prices of fossil fuels (such as raising interest rates and adding oil from the US petroleum reserves to increase total oil supply), we need to expect that extraction will be adversely affected. One article reports that Saudi Arabia does not seem to be using recent record profits to quickly raise reinvestment to the level that seemed to be required a few years ago. This suggests that Saudi Arabia needs prices that are quite a bit higher than $100 per barrel in order to take significant steps toward extracting the country’s remaining resources. This would seem to contradict published reserves that, in theory, take current prices into consideration.

Reuters reports that Venezuela has reneged on its promise to send more oil to Europe, under an oil for debt deal. It wants oil product swaps instead, since it is lacking in its ability to make finished products from its oil itself. It would take a long run of prices much higher than today’s level for Venezuela to be able to sufficiently invest in infrastructure to do such refining. Venezuela reports the highest oil reserves in the world (303.8 thousand million barrels), even higher than Saudi Arabia’s reported 297.5 thousand million barrels, but neither country can be counted on to take major steps to raise supply.

Similarly, there have been reports that US shale drillers are not investing to keep production growing, despite what seem to be sufficiently high prices. There are simply too many issues. The cost of new investment is very high, outside of the already drilled sweet spots. Also, there is no guarantee the price will stay high. There are also supply line issues, such as whether appropriate steel drilling pipes and fracking sand will be available, when needed.

[c] Published information suggests that there is a huge amount of fossil fuels remaining to be extracted, given today’s level of technology. If we assume that technology will get better and better, it is easy to believe that any fossil fuel limit is hundreds of years in the future.

The way the economy works, the extraction limit is really an affordability issue. If the cost of extraction rises too high, relative to what people around the world have for spendable income, production will stop because demand (in terms of what people can afford) will drop too low. People will tend to cut back on discretionary spending, such as vacation travel and meals in restaurants, cutting back on demand for fossil fuels.

[d] How “demand” works is poorly understood. Very often, researchers and the general public assume that demand for energy products will automatically remain high.

A surprisingly large share of demand is tied to the need for food, water, and basic services such as schools, roads, and bus service. Poor people require these basics just as much as rich people do. There are literally billions of poor people in the world. If the wages of poor people fall too low relative to the wages of rich people, the system cannot work. Poor people find that they must spend nearly all their income on food, water and housing. As a result, they have little left to pay taxes to support basic governmental services. Without adequate demand from poor people, the prices of commodities tend to fall too low to encourage reinvestment.

The majority of fossil fuel use is by commercial and industrial users. For example, natural gas is often used in making nitrogen fertilizer. If the price of natural gas is high, the price of fertilizer will rise higher than farmers are willing to pay for the fertilizer. Farmers will cut back on fertilizer use, reducing yields for their crops. The farmers’ own costs will be lower, but there will be less of the desired crops grown, perhaps indirectly raising overall food prices. This is not a connection that economic modelers build into their models.

The lockdowns of 2020 show that governments can indeed ramp up demand (and thus prices) for energy products by sending out checks to citizens. We are now seeing that the approach seems to produce inflation rather than more energy production. Also, countries without energy resources of their own may see their currencies fall with respect to the US dollar.

[e] It is not true that energy types can easily be substituted for one another.

In energy modeling, such as in calculating “Energy Return on Energy Invested,” a popular assumption is that all energy is substitutable for other energy. This isn’t true, unless a person accounts for all of the details of the transition, and the energy needed to make such a transition possible.

For example, intermittent electricity, such as that generated by wind turbines or solar panels, is not substitutable for load-following electricity. Such intermittent electricity is not always available when people need it. Some of this intermittency is very long-term. For example, wind-generated electricity may be low for more than a month at a time. In the case of solar energy, the problem tends to be storing up enough electricity during summer months for use in winter. A naive person might assume that adding a few hours of battery backup would fix intermittency problems, but such a fix turns out to be very inadequate.

If people are not to freeze in the dark in winter, longer-term solutions are needed. One standard approach is to use a fossil fuel system to fill in the gaps when wind and solar are not available. The catch, then, is that the fossil fuel system really needs to be a year-around system, with trained staffing, pipelines and adequate fuel storage. A modeler needs to consider the need to build a whole double system instead of a single system.

Because of intermittency issues, electricity from wind and solar only substitute for fuels (coal, natural gas, uranium) that operate our current system. Publications often talk about the cost of intermittent electricity being at “grid parity” when its temporary cost seems to match the cost of grid electricity, but this is matching “apples and oranges.” The cost comparison needs to be in comparison to the average cost of fuel for plants producing electricity, rather than to electricity prices.

Another popular assumption is that electricity can be substituted for liquid fuels. For example, in theory, every piece of farm equipment could be redesigned and rebuilt to be based on electricity, rather than diesel, which is typically used today. The catch is that there would need to be an enormous number of batteries built and eventually disposed of for this transition to work. There would need also need to be factories to build all this new equipment. We would need an international trade system operating extraordinarily well, to find all the raw materials. Likely, there would still not be enough raw materials to make the system work.

[f] There is a great deal of confusion about expected oil and other energy prices, as an economy reaches energy limits.

This issue is closely related to [4][d], with respect to the confusion about how energy demand works. A common assumption among analysts is that “of course” oil prices will rise, as limits are approached. This assumption is based on the standard supply and demand curve used by economists.

Figure 5. Standard economic supply and demand curve from Wikipedia. Description of how this curve works: The price P of a product is determined by a balance between production at each price (supply S) and the desires of those with purchasing power at each price (demand D). The diagram shows a positive shift in demand from D1 to D2, resulting in an increase in price (P) and quantity sold (Q) of the product.

The issue is that the availability of inexpensive energy products very much affects demand as well as supply. Jobs that pay well are only available if inexpensive energy products can leverage human labor. For example, surgeons today perform robotic surgery, requiring, at a minimum, a stable source of electricity for each operation. Furthermore, the equipment used in the surgery is created using fossil fuels. Surgeons also use anesthetic products that require fossil fuels. Without today’s fancy equipment, surgeons would not be able to charge nearly as much they do for their services.

Thus, it is not immediately obvious whether demand or supply would tend to fall faster, if energy supply should hit limits. We know that Revelation 18:11-13 in the Bible provides a list of a number of commodities, including humans sold as slaves, for which prices dropped very low at the time of the collapse of ancient Babylon. This suggests that at least sometimes during prior collapses, the problem was too low demand (and too low prices), rather than too low supply of energy products.

[5] The International Energy Agency and politicians around the world have recommended a transition to the use of wind and solar to try to prevent climate change for quite a few years. This approach seemed to have the approval of both those concerned about too much burning of fossil fuels causing climate change and those concerned about too little fossil fuel energy causing economic collapse.

A rough estimate of what the decline in energy supply might look like under the rapid shift to renewables proposed by politicians is shown in Figure 6.

Figure 6. Estimate by Gail Tverberg of World Energy Consumption from 1820 to 2050. Amounts for earliest years based on estimates in Vaclav Smil’s book Energy Transitions: History, Requirements and Prospectsand BP’s 2020 Statistical Review of World Energy for the years 1965 to 2019. Energy consumption for 2020 is estimated to be 5% below that for 2019. Energy for years after 2020 is assumed to fall by 6.6% per year, so that the amount reaches a level similar to renewables only by 2050. Amounts shown include more use of local energy products (wood and animal dung) than BP includes.

If a person understands the connection between energy consumption and the economy, such a rapid drop in energy supply looks like something that would likely be associated with economic collapse. The goal of politicians seems to be to keep citizens from understanding how awful the situation really is by reframing the story of the decline in energy supply as something politicians and economists have chosen to do, to try to prevent climate change for the sake of future generations.

The rich and powerful can see this change as a good thing if they themselves can profit from it. When there is not enough energy, the physics of the situation tends to lead to increasing wage and wealth disparities. Wealthy individuals see this outcome as a good thing: They can perhaps personally profit. For example, Bill Gates has amassed about 270,000 acres of farmland in the United States, including newly purchased farmland in North Dakota.

Furthermore, politicians see that they can have more control over populations if they can direct citizens in a way that will use less energy. For example, bank accounts can be linked to some type of social credit score. Politicians will explain that this is for people’s own good–to prevent the spread of disease or to prevent undesirables from using too much of the available resources.

One way of dramatically reducing energy consumption is by mandating shutdowns in an area, purportedly to prevent the spread of Covid-19, as China has been doing recently. Such shutdowns can be explained as being needed to stop the spread of disease. These shutdowns can also help hide other problems, such as not having enough fuels to prevent rolling blackouts of electricity.

[6] We are living in a truly unusual time, with a major energy problem being hidden from view.

Politicians cannot tell the world how bad the energy situation really is. The problem with near-term energy limits has been known since at least 1956 (M. King Hubbert) and 1957 (Hyman Rickover). The problem was confirmed in the modeling performed for the 1972 book, The Limits to Growth by Donella Meadows and others.

Most high-level politicians are aware of the energy supply issue, but they cannot possibly talk about it. Instead, they choose to talk about what would happen if the economy were allowed to speed ahead without limits, and how bad the consequences of that might be.

Militaries around the world are no doubt well aware of the fact that there will not be enough energy supplies to go around. This means that the world will be in a contest for who gets how much. In a war-like setting, we should not be surprised if communications are carefully controlled. The views we can expect to hear loudly and repeatedly are the ones governments and influential individuals want ordinary citizens to hear.

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.

    • Yes, bikes are a good idea, especially as long as roads can be maintained. Electric bikes require batteries and other parts. Even non-electric bikes are dependent on business as usual for replacement parts, such as tires. Walking is the only truly long-term method of transport. Riding on a raft or dug-out boat downstream is a fairly close second.

    A planetary budget to survive and thrive

    We must define science-based targets to ensure that we stay within the limits of what our planet can support, argue eight sustainability and policy researchers. Next year, a global task force of natural and social scientists (including many of the authors) will issue its first report outlining these ‘Earth system boundaries’. Here, they outline how researchers can help cities and companies to understand complex, interlinked systems — water, nutrients, carbon emissions and more — to avoid cascading effects and stave off tipping points in Earth’s systems.

      “More than a decade ago, scientists defined a set of biophysical global limits, known as planetary boundaries, within which humanity can operate ‘safely’.

      “It will be a long haul, but humanity needs to stay within the planet’s finite budgets. Developing scientifically robust and socially just ways to allocate resources and responsibilities is essential if Earth’s boundaries are to be respected.”

      their glorious intentions will be smashed by the relentless irreversible decline in net (surplus) energy.

    CTG and Bobby. No we are not a failed species, rather there is non-emergent je-ne-sais-quoi about reasoning. That is, the effects of U.N.P.R.E.D.C.T.A.B.L.E- R.E.E.N.F.O.R.C.E.M.E.N.T. reach all the way into plain computation and observer bias can be manufactured and automated.

    Sometime ago I became convinced that AI was a “fake it until you make it” situation. I began to suspect that the propaganda that powerful computing platforms (or synthetic neo-cortices) were needed was in actuality a hazing ritual to keep inquiring minds from foundational discovery. So my research became to articulate exactly what was missing in intellectual life that would extend the reach of any trained mind. Because if something was missing after all these centuries, then it ought to be teachable to humans and then presented why this je-ne-sais-quoi has been missed and therefore preferable to be automated. Otherwise so-called AI is always going to be the Wizard of Oz: a trick masquerading as “emergent”. And therefore for foundational discovery, someone has to take the tack that “emergence is vanity”.

    For example, Laplace, Haldane and “Monty Hall” grasped onto a vexatious consequence of probability theory. Namely, what is to be done when one has more hypotheses than data points? All three were positivists because they formulated their experiments to generate data and conclusions that could be easily rejected or accepted. But the foundational problem is what is to be done when one has three or more hypotheses and a pathological constraint on acceptable data?

    I will skip the orthodox probability proof and leap to the easiest example. The magic trick of “Balls and Cups”. The audience, in the presence of skilled slight of hand, is unable to associate which cups do not have balls underneath them. This is a pathological constraint on acceptable data. And because of this, the “true hypothesis” becomes the cup which has the ball underneath wherever the sleight-of-hand wants it to be. And if one is performing inference under this kind of scenario, where there is no underlying model of reality that the audience/observer can rely upon (or agree upon), the “true hypothesis” is easily packaged as non-objective, socially-determined and so-on. But when “Balls and Cups” transitions into the gambling game called “Three Card Monty” the mark, the person drawn in, has a skin in the game, he can no longer dispassionately see “Balls and Cups” and instead will swear he got the observations and the inferences right. Aka. He becomes a prisoner of U.N.P.R.E.D.C.T.A.B.L.E- R.E.E.N.F.O.R.C.E.M.E.N.T.

    This problem of reaching inferences with too many hypotheses under pathological constraints on acceptable data, I believe, has unlimited applicability, regardless of phenomena, across the ability to observe and to infer. The probability theoretical disputes created by Laplace, Haldane and Monty Hall keep that conversation from getting too expansive too quickly.

    Now FE claims his UEP “PR Team has done a magnificent job convincing energy is not a problem and never will be”. If he is correct, which I begrudge, the public keeps being shown the “Balls and Cups” magic trick. I got electricity, he filled up with gas, it’s just inflation, TRYHARDER, etc. No one is keeping track that the hypothesis or cup count is way past two. And no one is noticing that there is one data point, a single “ball” being sleight-of-handed under each of those cups, called BAU.

      “No we are not a failed species…”

      “failed” is not the right word here.

      humans are merely a species like any other.

      survival of the fit enough:

      species co-evolve with their environment, and as long as a species is “fit enough” to survive, it lives on.

      until extinction, like all species.

      extinction isn’t failure, it’s a natural part of co-evolution.

      it is what it is.

      it’s all good.

    • Right! The public seems to be fooled by “scientific models,” no matter how absurd the underlying assumptions. The more complex the model, the easier it is to hide the fact that the underlying assumption make no sense, whatsoever.

    • Da Vinci worked on the principle of powered flight—despite his intellect, he didn’t figure out that what was missing was a ‘modern’ engine.

      In his ‘intellectual life’ the concept didn’t arise because the means did not exist, for him , or the people of his era.

      When the ‘engine’ came on the scene, it wasn’t a ‘sudden’ eureka moment, it was a progression of ideas over 2 centuries, 1700s to 1900s, that resulted in an engine light enough for powered flight.

      So it isn’t something that humans ‘need to learn’ that is somehow ‘teachable’ that will enable us to resolve all our current problems. There isn’t something ‘unknown’ sitting out there.

      The progression of our species doesnt work like that.

      We should perhaps accept that we have lost a great deal. We could not survive in the living situation of 100k years ago.

    Poor Edwin…going to have to pay up for his pile of coal..that’s too bad

    Coal is re-emerging as a key source of energy for European countries racing to replace increasingly scarce natural gas as Moscow shuts off key pipeline flows.

    Europe is caught in a worsening energy crisis as Russia uses its energy exports to retaliate against sanctions. So countries like Germany are turning to coal to secure energy supplies before winter hits.

    Power generation using coal has shot up over 20% in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK together since last year, Rystad Energy data shows. European countries have increased coal consumption this year.

    “Coal is definitely making a comeback, with skyrocketing natural gas prices and drought,” Ole Hvalbye, an analyst at Swedish bank SEB, told Insider. “Now it is all about surviving the winter.”
    Coal is making a comeback as Europe races to find alternatives to Russian natural gas.
    The price of coal is 5 times higher than normal as countries try to secure energy supply for winter.
    Surging natural gas prices and a hydropower crunch are other factors, 2 top energy analysts explain.

    A World on Fire

    Every day, news reporters, traders, and workers of all sorts the world over wake to do their work as they always have. Part of that requires that everyone pretend that life is normal, fixable, and more or less stable. All of this is temporary. It will come and go and really not be that bad.

    Strange, isn’t it? Human beings have a hard time adjusting to disaster, in their decision-making and even in their mindset. Reporters have to do their jobs as they are trained. Traders too. Everyone does. They please their bosses. They don’t sound alarms. They don’t scream and yell as they probably should.

    But there is a moment in the day when the work is done and perhaps a cocktail comes out or the dishes are washed and the kids are in bed and the room falls silent. At this moment, millions and billions of people the world over know it. Disaster is all around us. We are just pretending otherwise, simply because this is what we have to do.

    It was this way during lockdowns. They must know what they are doing otherwise why would we be forced to do this. If we all do our part, maybe this will end sooner rather than later. The experts surely know better than we do what is what. What can we do but trust?

    • I received a book in the mail a couple of days ago that a reader told me about: Every Life Is On Fire: How Thermodynamics Explains the Origins of Living Things. The book is by Jeremy England and was published in 2020.

      The book blurb says:

      A preeminent physicist unveils a field-defining theory of the origins and purpose of life.

      Why are we alive? Most things in the universe aren’t. And everything that is alive traces back to things that, puzzlingly, weren’t.

      For centuries, the scientific question of life’s origins has confounded us. But in Every Life Is on Fire, physicist Jeremy England argues that the answer has been under our noses the whole time, deep within the laws of thermodynamics. England explains how, counterintuitively, the very same forces that tend to tear things apart assembled the first living systems.

      But how life began isn’t just a scientific question. We ask it because we want to know what it really means to be alive. So England, an ordained rabbi, uses his theory to examine how, if at all, science helps us find purpose in a vast and mysterious universe.

      In the tradition of Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search for Meaning, Every Life Is on Fire is a profound testament to how something can come from nothing.

      The front cover blurb says (among other things),

      “England explains how, counterintuitively, the very same forces that tend to tear things apart could have assembled the first living systems. His theory, known as dissipative adaptation has captured the attention of physicists and biologists all over the world, and is presented here in full for lay readers.”

      I expect that the same forces are behind The World on Fire, described in your comment.

    Over 400 doctors, scientists and professionals from more than 34 countries this morning declared an international medical crisis due to “diseases and death associated with the ‘COVID-19 vaccines’”.

    Launched at a press conference on Saturday, September 10th, the declaration states: “We are currently witnessing an excess in mortality in those countries where the majority of the population has received the so-called ‘COVID-19 vaccines’. To date, this excess mortality has neither been sufficiently investigated nor studied by national and international health institutions.”

    It continues:

    The large number of sudden deaths in previously healthy young people who were inoculated with these ‘vaccines’ is particularly worrying, as is the high incidence of miscarriages and perinatal deaths which have not been investigated.

    A large number of adverse side effects, including hospitalisations, permanent disabilities and deaths related to the so-called ‘COVID-19 vaccines’, have been reported officially.

    It discusses how effective was the Pfizer Covid vaccine among children. It is a large study that included 273,157 vaccinated children. What is extremely interesting is that they tracked, separately, four groups of children:

    Unvaccinated children who did not have Covid (no immunity — naive comparison group for VE)

    Unvaccinated children who had Covid (natural immunity)

    Children who had Covid prior to vaccination (unset natural immunity)

    Vaccinated children who never had Covid

    The NEJM piece shows that children who had Covid and were subsequently vaccinated, were much more likely to get reinfected than their peers who also had Covid, and were NOT vaccinated.

    In other words, for kids who had Covid, getting them vaccinated made them much more susceptible to reinfections. They should have stayed unvaccinated!

    Look at the figure from the article, annotated by me:

Finally, we have an article with plenty of data provided, that confirmed that our concerns were valid.

    Re: RUS vs. UKR/ NATO

    Maybe it is just dissipative structures competing to order their environment to themselves, and that includes humans, who may be ordered to or against the structure, and either assimilated, destroyed or abandoned.

    No one is really ‘in control’ of anything or ‘responsible’ for anything, and ‘morality’ is just narratives that the structures use to control and to order. It is very easy to get lost in the labyrinth of such functional narratives.

  30. CTG says:

    Just had coffee with some friends here in my country but it can be anywhere in the world. The takeaway

    1. The trust in government is very high. Their logic – it is just not possible for government to harm people as it is against their “duty of care”. Furthermore, it is not possible for them to harm so many of us and even the politicians themselves are taking it.

    2. We talked about China not allowing their citizens to leave. I said “I know there are many people fed up with the situation and want to leave China for good and thus, it is highly unlikely that China will allow them to leave in large numbers and possibly the borders may not open at all”. Imagine the money and people flowing out. I told my friend I am skeptical that they will open up. Energetically, it is very expensive for China to open up in winter when they may not have enough energy. My friend’s response was – it will be bad for the economy, so they will open. It is unthinkable for my friend to contemplate otherwise.

    There is a built-in blinders that prevent them from thinking otherwise.

    We saw that in Titanic.

    1. It is unsinkable and the Cunard Lines is so big that they do not lie about this. The technology for Titanic is really cutting edge and great. Even the the top management strongly believe that it is “safe, fast and unsinkable”. They believe they have conquered nature.

    2. Word spread to the common people on the unsinkable Titanic. The top people of UK/USA and perhaps the government officials themselves believe in the unsinkable Titanic. The commoners felt good because even the top people say it is unsinkable.

    3. So, if anyone questioned the Titanic, they are all heretic.

    4. Even after the Titanic crashed and water flooded into the compartments, people still think it is heretic to question the unsinkable Titanic (sounds familiar with the adverse events of vaccines?)

    5. Even when it was sinking, people were still partying thinking that it was still “ok” and the captain did not even bother to evacuate.

    until it sank.

    If you were to rephrase that into what is happening today… the story line did not change, only the characters, the theme and the backdrop changed.

      The thing is…

      They are experiencing two mass psychoses… they cannot fathom why all governments are involved in exterminating their citizens…

      That is because they are unaware of the energy situation …

      It is pretty much impossible to even get to first base because the PR Team has done a magnificent job convincing energy is not a problem and never will be.

      If they are unwilling to accept the energy problem then there is no way they are going to understand that exterminating is the better of the two options – ROF vs UEP.

      Even people who understand the energy problem steer clear of the only two possible outcomes. Cuz they both offer no hope — they both result in extinction.

      • Xabier says:

        Even when told about the unsuspected energy predicament, and introduced to the concept of overshoot of resources in an ecosystem – plus all the ecosystem-destroying industrial waste and pollution – they evade the horrible truth by flat denial, or saying they are mistaken concepts, or even lies promoted by the banksters and eugenicists.

    • Jan says:

      I doubt that this is still the case in Europe. I think acception rates for the fourth jab are about 4%?

    Here’s easy access to Lawrence Broxmeyer’s papers, articles and books. Seems there’s a lot more than “covid” at issue here.


    • I notice this paper among Broxmeyer’s work:


      Dr. Lawrence Broxmeyer, a long-time disease investigator and skeptic of modern assumptions regarding the origins of infectious disease, postulates that a small and prevalent mycobacterium that causes 1.7 million deaths a year, is the origin of the infection, hospitalizations and deaths attributed to a newly mutated coronavirus, now identified as COVID-19.

      According to Dr. Broxmeyer, COVID-19 may be nothing more than a passenger virus while the mycobacterium commonly known as tuberculosis, is wreaking all the damage in the lungs in the current epidemic that is holding the world in a news media-created grip of terror. Cause and effect have not been proven.

      • Jan says:

        Viral pneumonia is one of the symptoms to diagnose Covid. So most doctors will test for bacterias. Does the tbc pathogen slip through these tests? With some variants this seems possible.

        • hillcountry says:

          This one speaks to the need and difficulty of serological surveillance of mycobacterial involvement in Creutzfeldt-Jakob and Alzheimer’s and the likelihood of food-borne tuberculosis.


          (from the summary)

          Bovine tuberculosis, which includes Mycobacterium bovis and M. avium intracellulare or paratuberculosis, is and has always been the most prevalent threat to the cattle industry, and the USDA reports that between 20% and 40% of US dairy herds are infected with paratuberculosis alone. The health risk for milk tainted with M. bovis has been known for decades and there was a time not so long ago when ‘‘tuberculin-tested’’ was printed on every milk container. Schliesser stated that meat from tuberculous animals may also constitute a significant risk of infection. At the turn of
          the 20th century 25% of the many US deaths from TB in adults were caused by M. bovis.

    • Tim Groves says:

      Without reading these links, due to lack of time, the thought occurs that IF the mycobacterium commonly known as tuberculosis is at work, THEN masking may make a big difference to controlling the spread of infection after all. ALSO, certain combinations of antibiotics might be a good strategy for clearing up infections, although tuberculosis is known to be a persistent little bugger.

      • hillcountry says:

        Tim, yes, that’s the kind of ‘noodling’ I’m trying to do, fitting pieces together. Masks yes, but lockdowns no, is one puzzle. Anti-tubercular Azithromycin on the FLCCC protocol? Side note: it’s hard to imagine Pierre Kory not recognizing the ‘ground-glass’ signature in the lungs; or calling it “organizing pneumonia” if it wasn’t, but stranger things. I’m still plowing through 3 of Broxmeyer’s books linking mycobacteria to HIV/AIDS, Autism, and Alzheimer’s. Fortunately, via Lida Mattman’s textbook Stealth Pathogens, I had exposure to the pleomorphism side of this, so the difficulties regarding testing and confirmation are clear. Playing Muddy Waters as background for Pubmed sleuthing is advisable. The Venn-diagram thing is all over this mess.

    If your can choose between your optimistic atheist close relative (brother, mother etc.) and a sceptic believer, whom would you choose as your close person?

    I bet you are ready to abandon your close relative and join the sceptic believer. No matter how close is somebody to you, but if he or she prefers lies, you detest him or her.

    That is why family values fail and the values of some higher brotherhood with those on the social periphery prevail.

    No matter how good the family values are, they are a part of the growth which finally fails.

    • Perhaps a person needs to have multiple friends/relatives to have connections with. Beliefs are likely to vary. So are life expectancies, with or without these problems. If a person relies solely on one person to have close connections with, they are likely to be a very distraught person when that one person is somehow taken away.

      • MG says:

        During the communist era and also now, “the good connections” are considered to be of value. But do these good connections, often even corruption, provide a man any value for the scarcity times?

        The Bible with its “make the friends of the poor and the ill” provides a better help for the times of scarcity, because the poor and the ill, who are on the edge of the rich society, live what is to be finally experienced by all.

        Judo is one of those arts where a opponents force can be used to create undesirable outcomes for them. It can also be used to place ones body so a minimum of force applied creates undesirable outcomes for the opponent. It is rather pragmatic in that it doesn’t value one more than the other. I consider Judo a very nice compromise between pragmatism and art. Its a bit uncontrolled in that if you turn someone upside down and add velocity to their body in multiple vectors the degree of injury they will suffer is unknown. Putin obviously didnt want any where near the risk of the applying force that he has. He tried to be artful but that just wasnt his destiny. Its a brawl now and things like civilian infrastructure may suffer. Outcome becomes uncertain for all participants in a brawl. The guy that does better with no brawl of course doesn’t want one. The guy that does better with a brawl makes sure it happens. The ironic fact is that its always easier to turn it into a brawl than keep it from becoming one. This favors the guy who does better when its a brawl. Until everyone is maimed. Individuals do in fact exist that can do both. They are extremly rare. The metaphor unfortunately loses relationship at this point. No one “handles” strategic nuclear weapon exchange.

    What Goes Up: China’s Employment Crisis

    The implosion of the real estate sector has stalled the Chinese growth machine. As a consequence, unemployment is rising. Western consumer goods companies with a significant presence in the country will feel the knock-on effects.

    When government leaders feared crashing international demand in the global financial crisis, they responded by pouring resources into real estate. Where the investment of the previous decades had largely gone into road, rail, telecom, and computerization that improved productivity, after 2008, the government force-fed the economy on capital to keep the economic machine going, and productivity sputtered.

    Domestic Labor Market Slumps

    It was going to take just a gentle push to make it all end, and that came with the property crash in summer 2021. Now, the news is all about unemployment. The government reports that about one-fifth of young people under 25 who are seeking work cannot find any. Although statistics on employment among older people are opaque, occasional independent surveys in the countryside indicate high levels of unemployment. Civil servants in the wealthiest regions are taking massive pay cuts.

    . . .
    Smartphone sales are falling sharply. Nike is gloomy. Starbucks saw a 40% drop in sales in the most recent quarter. No more will China be the capital of luxury spending. And demand for commodities like coal and copper and iron ore is already tumbling.

    The rest of the world has depended on China’s growth. Over half of the demand for commodities like coal, copper and iron ore has come from China from recent years. If China stops buying, commodity prices will fall. In fact, they already have started falling.

    Also, if China is in difficulty, China may become more warlike. For example, attack Taiwan, I suppose.

    ALL Vaccines Are Unsafe & Ineffective: Things You Should Know about Traditional Vaccines

    You should know these things about vaccination:

    No one else will tell you this, but some traditional vaccinations kill and maim more people than the diseases they are supposed to prevent. Historically, the evidence is clear (as I have shown in my books). American statistics also prove this. In some cases, illnesses were conquered by other means (e.g., better living conditions) before vaccines became available.

    Essential research into vaccine safety is not done. No tests are done to see how different vaccines inter-react – or may inter-react with prescription medicines or medicines bought from the pharmacy. No one knows just how much damage is done by vaccination programmes.

    Billions of dollars have been paid out to patients who have been injured by vaccines. And yet doctors and politicians claim that vaccines are perfectly safe.

    Many vaccines are woefully ineffective – in addition to producing side effects. When I was a GP I never met a doctor who had the annual flu jab.

    Every doctor I know of who has spoken out against vaccination has been struck off the medical register – usually for doubtful reasons. (I have not been struck off but I am retired.) There is nothing more likely to result in a doctor’s professional ruin than speaking out against vaccination. The profession will forgive doctors who sleep with their patients, who abuse alcohol or drugs or who prescribe in a dangerous way. But those who question vaccination (particularly childhood vaccination programmes) are never forgiven.

    The media (including the internet) has been instructed not to allow any debate or discussion of vaccination side effects, dangers or shortcomings. No one will debate vaccination with me anymore. The BBC refuses to allow any discussion of vaccination and will not allow anyone questioning vaccination onto its programmes ‘whether they are right or wrong’. On the internet, articles questioning the effectiveness or safety of vaccination are suppressed. I’m a Sunday Times bestselling author with over two million books sold in the UK and books translated into 25 languages. But when over 600 copies of my book on vaccination (Anyone who tells you vaccines are safe and effective is lying) were sent out to newspapers and magazines, not one review was ever published. Some publications were so terrified by the book that instead of selling it (as is customary with review copies) they sent it back to me.


    norm being a pro vaxxer… completely disagrees…

    • This is Dr. Vernon Coleman’s view of the subject.

        And https://drkevinstillwagon.substack.com/

        And increasingly Fast Eddy’s …

        I strongly recommend everyone else take all the injections… there is no question that there are risks involved with all of them… so let the others take those risks…. if any of them are effective then great — if most others are injected then you are not gonna get the disease!

        F789 everyone else… make it all about you.

        Logic and Selfishness and Survival … all in one tidy package.

        • Rodster says:

          Norm has taken your advice to heart and is getting injected with all the latest and greatest untested booster shots from AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and J&J. Let’s all thank Norm for taking one and many more for the team. 🤓

          • Fast Eddy says:

            Good on norm … sacrificing his carcass for the Anti Vaxxers!

            I urge everyone to ignore prominent anti -vax doctors and please – please – please keep on injecting all 754 vaccine options into yourselves and your children.

  36. Fast Eddy says:

    BA.4.6 sub-variant clade, see Walgreens tracker; pay attention to it, it may displace BA.5 that could become outdated; this means the new bi-valent shot with Wuhan & BA.5 spike will be outdated

    This means we will end up in the same place we are in now, where a sub-optimal non-neutralizing injection drives infectious variants and the vaccinated will become infected and transmit…


    • The questions I have are:

      What variant will be predominant in January, when a person would expect a peak in cases, especially in the North?

      Will the variant be so mild that vaccination makes no difference?

      What is the cumulative impact of all of these vaccinations?

      • Fast Eddy says:

        If those questions are meant for norm… fawgetabowtit

      • Jan says:

        The variant should get more infectious and create less intense causes. So more like the flu. Virusses like that are getting endemic.

        According to British data the jabs are stopping the injected to develop not only antibodies after a booster but also in case of infection. IgG4 is developed, which causes some kind of desensibility. Probably more factors are involved.

        That might lead to severe causes of the vaxxed which might be mistaken for a more harmful virus.

        The cumulation of multiple injections is monitored at least in British data. Antibody levels sink the more injections one has. Two jabs still provide good level, with the third they decline, after the fourth there seem so be none.

        If you feel that you get more often ill than before the jab you might want to ask for a large blood panel with details of interferon gamma and IgG4 and perhaps some factors more. It is possible to do some repairs.

    My discussion with Lara Logan
    The problem we face is getting any visibility in the mainstream press. I just got off the phone with former 60 Minutes journalist Lara Logan. She cannot get any of her former friends to cover the Israeli safety story because it is counter-narrative. I asked, “What reason do they give?” She said it is a variety of “excuses” like “too busy,” “not in my area,” etc. The issue is the reporters actually believe the vaccines are safe and effective so they don’t want to do anything that would create “vaccine hesitancy.”

    I asked her, “So how do we crack this?”

    She said it is very very difficult. If it were easy, it would have been done long ago.

    For example, Andrew Wakefield had very damaging insider information from the CDC where the leaker was caught on tape, and it went nowhere.


    They do not understand who they are fighting against…

    keep in mind – there is high definition video that proves multiple shooters of JFK… has there been any investigation?

    “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ― Woodrow Wilson

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays – Propaganda

  38. Fast Eddy says:

    My email to nearly 300 CDC employees paid off. One of them responded on a secure channel and I can now ask questions and get answers.

    Here are two things I learned:

    He believes that everyone at the CDC is drinking the Kool-Aid. In other words, as far as he knows, they all truly believe the vaccines are safe and effective, just like my blue-pilled friends. Even the top people. If there are any dissenters, they aren’t speaking up internally. How does this happen? It’s group-think. What happens to critical thinkers? They leave. I thought for sure people like Tom Shimabukuro and John Su knew what they were doing, but they are clueless. They are just like my academic doctor friends: they truly believe that vaccines are safe and I’m nuts. Wow. Just wow. I still don’t know (yet) how they can just brush off my point that they never point out the VAERS under-reporting factor during their presentations. However, it’s true they really believe there is no corruption and no need to protect whistleblowers. Check out this comment.

    Desmet attacked https://2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com/p/mass-formation-hypnosis-disorder

    BTW – Hopkins and Desmet are kindred spirits… neither is pushing for revolution …

    • Tim Groves says:

      And both have books to sell.

      I don’t have enough to say to write a book about this. Perhaps I could could write one on gardening or aging gracefully. 🙂

      But it looks to me like both Hopkins and Desmet are right in part.

      Hopkins is right that the pandemic, the rules, the restrictions, the abuse of dissidents, did not come about because most people spontaneously turned into cult members or “good Germans”, but because people at the top of the hierarchy planned, organized and executed this as a program, and the majority of people got with it.

      Desmet is right that most people formed a mass, whether enthusiastically or hesitantly, and went along with the program. This is how people commonly behave and always have done. I haven’t read Desmet’s book, but I wonder whether there is anything new in there that wasn’t mentioned by Hannah Arendt in The Origins of Totalitarianism, Erich Fromm in Escape From Freedom, or Eric Hoffer in The True Believer.

      Anyone interested in how the majority people have complied so completely with the narrative would do well to go back to those works of over half a century ago, because they are not aimed at analyzing the present specific context and are therefore are better at identifying the universal aspects of totalitarianism.

      I’m certain the people at the top who ordered this and those in the upper echelons who planned and PRed it were well aware of the tendency of people to form masses under certain conditions. Getting them to do this is a bit like getting those hydrogen atoms to undergo fusion. You just have to get all your ducks in a row and turn up the temperature and pressure until it goes bang!

    The Habsburg King Carlos II of Spain was sadly degenerated with an enormous misshapen head. His Habsburg jaw stood so much out that his two rows of teeth could not meet; he was unable to chew. His tongue was so large that he was barely able to speak. His intellect was similarly disabled. His brief life consisted chiefly of a passage from prolonged infancy to premature senility.

    Carlos’ family was anxious only to prolong his days and thought little about his education, so that he could barely read or write. He had been fed by wet nurses until the age of 5 or 6 and was not allowed to walk until almost fully grown. Even then, he was unable to walk properly, because his legs would not support him and he fell several times.

    His body remained that of an invalid child. The nature of his upbringing, the inadequacy of his education, the stiff etiquette of his court, his dependence upon his mother and his superstition helped to create a mentally retarded and hypersensitive monarch.


    hahahahaahaha… humans are really f789ing stooopid – no?

    Anyone want to debate this topic?

    • CTG says:

      The Habsburg King Carlos II of Spain

      just a few generations of in-breeding and you have this type of outcome. So, anyone here think it is possible for humans to in-breed a few hundred or thousand generations without any issues? If you think this is possible then I have a safe and effective vaccine for you

      • davidinamonthorayearoradecade says:

        while you may or may not be able to make a better case than this example…

        “this type of outcome” NEVER breeds, while the better/best outcomes of inbreeding go on to breed a lot.

        survival of the fittest, and large scale breeding of the fittest.

      • Fast Eddy says:

        Maybe what happened is the original humans were actually smart – they knew driving cars and watching TeeVee and farming would extinct them… so they initially rejected all that…

        But then .. for some reason … inbreeding became a thing… brother on sister … son on mother – father on daughter…. who knows why that happened (I can’t answer all the questions – norm any idea?)

        Anyhow… over the generations as the inbreeding continued a genetic trait emerged — we refer to it as intelligence… (it’s actually stooopidity)… and one thing lead to another — the inbred farmers who produced more food so there was never a die back… overwhelmed the hunter gatherers who resisted the inbreeding …but were few….

        And so on and so on and so on … and here we are – 8 Billion F789ing Inbred MOREONS… on the verge of being exterminated.

        Cuz we are so smart!

      • Fast Eddy says:

        Oh and I took a run into town – hate doing that– it’s filled with MOREONS – almost all of them wearing masks … makes me feel like bashing them in … anyhow I go to the butcher … and they are Closed … sign on the door says due to critical staff shortages we’re f789ed so we aren’t open today…


        It’s ok … I’m sharing some of Hoolios wet food … tastes not bad on crackers… like pate

        The handsome Polish prince, dont ask me his name, got married to the Habsburgian princess. Two large armies met half the way when messengers reported the princess has exactly that problem. The prince needed 3 days to think. Perhaps he was convinced by the enormous sum the princess’ father has granted her.

        The princess turned out to be a wonderful and highly intelligent wife, partner and mother, giving birth to generations of Polish nobility. Loved by the people she was considered the “mother of Poland”.

      • Oddys says:

        You have a very interesting argument here. I have seen you make it before but not commented. This require a much deeper investigation of in-breeding and genetic variations.

        There are many stories of widespread infanticide as routine practice among hunter/gatherers and “primitive” tribes when kids come out with even small defects or deviations from ideals. There are also many stories about tribe wars culling adult males very effectively and only left “perfect” individuals for breeding.

        • CTG says:

          There is not much need for infanticide as most of them die very young…. if you are interested to discuss, use email. chngtg (a) gmail

      • Jonathan Madden says:


        But there is the strange outlier, North Sentinel island in the Andamans.
        I am not convinced that inbreeding invariably leads to bad genetic outcomes.

  41. Fast Eddy says:

    Inbreeding and the Downfall of the Spanish Hapsburgs


    To finish making sense of that history, we just need to add one other element to the story: as it turns out, the “British” royal family isn’t very British at all. The House of “Windsor” only became the House of “Windsor” in 1917, after all. Before that, it was Saxe Coburg-Gotha. But the British public were a bit fired up about the Huns because of that whole, you know, WWI thing, so “Windsor” it became.

    Noting the true origins of the House of “Windsor” is not just some cheap anti-Germanic slur, of course. It points to something even more fundamental. These royals—connected, as we remember, through inbreeding—had much more in common with their European brothers and sisters, cousins and uncles, than they did with the populations they were supposedly ruling over.

    With that historical background in place, we can understand, for example, the Windsors’ well-documented fondness for the eugenics-promoting Nazis. Where do you think the Nazis got their eugenical beliefs from, after all? Given the royal pedigree of the eugenic worldview, it is perhaps unsurprising to learn that the pseudoscience of eugenics was pioneered by Royal Medal recipient Francis Galton, himself hailing from the celebrated (and thoroughly inbred) Darwin-Galton line, which boasted many esteemed Fellows of the Royal Society.
