The Resources Crisis
The World is heading for a “super-depression” when energy supplies start to run out mid-century. The Kyoto target of 2 deg C above pre-industrial temperature will never be reached because there isn’t enough oil left in the ground. Alternatives, “renewables”, are not going to work because there are not enough raw materials available to make the transition.
There is no “Climate Emergency”. There isn’t even a climate problem but we face the biggest resource collapse in history. This will incur shortages, famine and war. It is a global problem which we know to be unsolvable, but some nation states will do better than others. Globalism is over. From now on, governments will need to prioritize the urgent, material needs of their own peoples.
Comments and guest posts are welcome. Rudeness and the imputation of scurrilous motives will not be tolerated. The standard of discussion should approximate that of a university department’s morning tea room.
