The Dilemma of Peak Oil (Documentaries)

The Dilemma of Peak Oil.

I've already gone through a ton of research this year. On everything. It's funny how when I do it, folks think I'm nuts, then they all start to follow suit afterwards.

When I talked about Monsanto, Drone Strikes, topics about 9/11, Big Banks, The Bailouts, the revolving back doors of Washington, the corruption in the system, many folks flat out stopped talking to me... And, when I tried to tell folks about the government spying before the leaks happened, they thought I was nuts. Now, they are in the know about it....

I've known about Global Warming, which has NOW become Climate Change and could have been preventable and was heading in that direction until brought to a halt by the G W Bush administration, and there's a long list of stories about that.

I traced back several of my steps, and I began uncovering stuff I'd forgotten, and new information. Everything from Libertarians, to Tea party fake grass roots, to The Koch Brothers. And, there's SO much to say about ALL of those. It's frightening, revolting, disheartening, etc. And, I don't even need some article or video to tell me what to think or be afraid of, I can look at the data & evidence on my own, independently on my own searching will, and see what articles & video makers missed.

Then, there was the whole government shutdown which siphoned away my attention....

But, back to Global Warming... it's NOT as tho' everyone didn't know about it. We did.

The "think tanks" by specifically The Koch Brothers, and other dirty energy profiteers, and those benefiting in "The Free Market" (so-called) got together to make-up disinformation propaganda, and other things to distract you, and lull you back into the endlessness of Consumption...

Global Warming it's self is SOMETHING to be rather unnerved, frightened, and panicked over...

It bothers me, and has bothered me ever since I'd not only learn about it, but consciously understood it. You see, I have a diploma in Environmental Sciences from the State of New Jersey.

I'm NOT pushing any religions here. I'm no Gaiya worship pusher, no Hinduism pusher, no Communist, no Soviet. But, I understand a number of LARGE chunks fitting together, overlapping, and more.

But, I must tell you that this idea of "The Free Market" fixing everything, or "shouldn't be questioned", the idea of unending growth, and endless consumption and disposal of natural resources is just that: a religion.

Think about it! What does religion mean?
It means "a system of belief". For some, it's very much a cult.

It's VERY complicated too!

If you're NOT terrified of Climate Change by now, then it hasn't actually "hit you" yet. In States like North Carolina, they passed a LAW that makes it illegal to prepare for the coming changes & effects of Climate Change, such as those on the shoreline.

As jarring as Climate Change is... if ur still nonchalant about it.... wait until you find out about peak oil.

Peak Oil

The trouble with mentioning peak oil, is that it just seems to be a word that floats around in the air, and no one understands it unless you explain it to them, and it takes a while to sink in... it might fly in 1 ear and out the other... or, maybe if you see 1 film or video you might go: Hmmmmm.... but, then you're back into the Mass Consumption debt wheel again, turning off ur brain and acting like a herd animal again, in an insane system...

If you're NOT really bothered by it at all. or maybe you've heard about it before... but you still carry on in life without any care of it... that it REALLY hasn't hit you yet... BECAUSE when it does, EVERYTHING you know, everything you think, everything you believed WILL bother you!
Every time you go shopping, drive your car, use transportation, electricity, food, water, commercials on TV, billboards on the street that you see, WILL ALL BOTHER YOU!

You will SEE the lies in the system, the systemic problems for what they are...and you will see The Future for WHAT it really WILL BE.

It's because of that reason, that it might scare you away, and you might start to vent your fear as HATE at me. It may be the reason WHY you might enjoy calling me crazy... because valuing rational thought that conflicts with illusions and lies is likely to cause that. It's called denial.

Lets face it....

Natural resources are FINITE. They are running out... not because they necessarily need to, but because of the mass consumption system is... ALL of those resources will be spent, and most of them are already in landfills as ur mass consumption technology becomes obsolete.

Let me trace you back through my steps.

I'm going to omit all the work I did when I researched the Koch Brothers (even tho' it's important) because once I rediscovered the dilemma of peak oil... I find it's less important in the scope than the actual crisis of Peak Oil. 

First, I went back and watched a few films I'd seen a number of years back, of which their were updates to. Ever heard of the Zeitgeist Movement?

The Zeitgeist films are very thought provoking... but, back when the 2nd & 3rd came out, I was bothered because some of the ideas reminded me of the typical Communism or Soviet stuff... and, that's their most common criticism...

But, when I went back to rewatch them.... I thought to myself... when they claimed they were against Communism, Soviet Socialism, Capitalism, and the Monetary System, what did that all mean?

What did they know, that I didn't know?

It became apparent when I found an interview of peter Joseph on TYT. If felt like he KNEW a ton of things, but there just wasn't time to explain it, and even Cenk seemed interested, but scared, yet very curious, because he kept saying he was trying to wrap his mind around it...

I do very much like the ideas of The Venus project, and The Zeitgeist movement... but, peter Joseph would try to make his points about a "transition" and a number of solutions, etc...

This entirely boggled me.

How do we transition? How do we get out of the debt based monetary system?
There were many great aspects about the Venus project... but, I don't understand how humans could function with out at least some form of an exchange system that's at least SOMETHING like monetary system. They say it's a "Resource based economy".

I don't know... I'm curious to see this work on a small scale, because for a few years now, I've often thought of what it might be like if I had my own sustainable community connected to other ones...

But, this nagging idea of: What is it that they know, that I don't?


If you've followed me along this far.... then, I will lead you through to my own path.

I won't lead any further tho'....

I will just point you their, this Odyssey is your own. Sacajawea might have pointed the way but she also went with on the Trek.

I will recommend only this:

Grab yourself a notebook, and a pen or pencil. jot down whatever you think sounds crazy, interesting, or weird, or frightening. Include names, numbers, facts, and figures.
You can use Google, government websites, and more to check and cross reference...

If you've never learned how to do critical thinking, then I suggest you learn. Every human brain has the ability to do so... but, it's a skill like reading & writing.

You may also need a calculator. 

But, I will say this:

A I began to look into peak oil.... my views entirely shifted... and I find myself shifting. All the things that occurred in Occupy Wall Street, in which folks came together which resonated with me came back again... and I find myself swaying towards The Zeitgeist Movement & Venus project...

The reason is, even if you fix all the problems with government corruption, you still have the problem of peak oil. And, the Earth's Natural Resources being depleted.

They way of life you live, is at it's end. Not some Dooms Day Armageddon in the sky with a vacuum from the sky God.

The doom is yourself. You are your own doom, or your own solution, collectively.

But, you won't understand that yet.

Grab your popcorn...

Because, you will be here for a while:

Expect more, because I'm still going through the materials...
