This website reveals that within the next year or two (at best):

  • Oil extraction from wells will be physically unable to meet global demand (the evidence is from the oil industry itself).
  • Alternative energy sources like nuclear and natural gas will fall far short of compensating for expected shortages of oil. There is simply not enough time to convert over to them.
  • Massive disruptions to transportation and the economy are expected from about 2005-2007 onward as the global decline of petroleum begins.
 

Most significant effects:

  • Gradual, permanent cut-off of fuel for transport and for industrial machinery. Global trade will greatly decline.
  • Agriculture (massive food shortages) depends heavily on fertilizers and chemicals made from oil.
  • Shortages of 500,000 other goods made from oil.
  • Therefore, reduction of virtually all business and government activity. Very serious unemployment.

I apologise that the information is disturbing. But comfort yourself that you gain big advantages by learning about it early, and being able to prepare to live more simply on much less energy.

PS. Unfortunately, self-preparation could prove futile if you end up surrounded by thousands of [starving] others who have made no preparation. Having a gun and plenty of ammunition sounds extreme, but may well prove a wise precaution.

Apart from reducing your vulnerability to the energy decline, the next thing to do is tell others. (Carefully) talk to your family and friends. Lobby your local councillors and other organisations.

PS. Over the past decade many people have done their best to inform others, and I believe I have done more than my share of warning. Unfortunately, few have heeded these warnings. It is of special concern that governments, councils, the judiciary, and most community leaders have not listened. Time for community/country preparation has run out… we are on our own.

There is a lot of preparing to do, so don’t fret too much, get busy!

PS. Taking decisive action now may be the only way you [and your children] can avoid having to face a very unpleasant and abrupt ending.

Good luck.

PS. Lunatics are running the asylum and it is about time the general populace woke up to the fact.

The New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and her Government have been informed of these facts.

They seem to lack the courage or commitment to truth to make public this information, with its potentially destabilising political, economic and social implications.

Unlike the patient whose doctor may choose to spare them the deadly diagnosis, many of us would prefer to know the truth and some idea of likely consequences.

I am now in my 6th year of sending them this information.

The Statement the media missed!

«because we’re probably not too far short of peak production, if we’re not already there»

    — Helen Clark, 18-04-2006
 
 
 
«But the real issue last week was about biodiesel and the world running out of fossil fuels. That was the point of the photo op, and I went there to make that point, it is the world walking the plank quite frankly, not Don Brash.»

    — Don Brash, Leader of the National Party (for now); Morning Report National Radio 5/06
 
 
 
«You’re quite right. Shell Oil International is working on the assumption that between 2005 and 2010 world oil demand will outstrip the capacity of the wells to supply. Then the price will really go up. So get your bike out!»

POLITICAL PARTIES REACTION TO PEAK OIL

After nearly 10 years of this group informing politicians from all parties about Peak Oil, they would have to be very stupid or outright liars to deny knowledge of these facts. It seems the further right you go the more wrong they are.

Political parties map

Independent of “Oilcrash.com”, Derek Wilson has been trying to inform this government and opposition parties about the imminent peak in oil supplies. Here are some of his efforts.

What some other Political parties around the world are saying:

Kapiti Coast District Council

 

Transition Towns Kapiti have taken it upon themselves to climb into bed with Kapiti Coast District Council and are currently helping place a toxic mercury bomb above the heads of every child on ‘The Nature Coast’. They are also promoting the idea – http://ttk.org.nz/?p=78 – that if one breaks in a child’s bedroom, you should clean up the mess with a damp cloth and keep the windows open for 15 minutes and to also vacuum any broken glass and dust (more info here).
They have ignored the below report and continue to promote this travesty.
