FLC188, Are the Russians Coming? Brief Thoughts on the Climate Change Scandal, Sean Gabb


Note: I wrote this two years ago, and I think it is pretty clear by now a) that the climate change bubble has burst at the propaganda level; 2) it was the Russian state that put the knife in. For the first and only time, the Russian security services really were ont he side of ordinary working people everywhere….[SIG]

What I predict will happen is that the propaganda will continue for the next few years. But it will be gradually be replaced by a new set of justificatory lies. Global warming itself was the replacement for acid rain pollution, ozone holes, and even global cooling. In the absence of some new environmental claims, I suggest that we shall hear much more for now on about “peak oil” – the notion that fossil fuels exist in limited supplies and that they will run out within the next few generations.

  1. Err, I don’t think we will “run out” of oil, but fossil fuels must by definition be in limited supply, right? Until we get that space exploration going, there can only be so much space inside the earth were there can be oil, so saying that it is NOT limited in supply is sort of self-contradictory?

    And by definition, I would assume the price and availability of oil is dependant on how much it costs to get it out of the ground, and due to the bell-curved nature of the return from oil wells, well there is “peak oil” for you. Not saying we can’t find other fuels (of course we can) nor that oil will “run out” (of course it won’t) but quite obviously the price of oil will go up unless technological advances allows us to easier tap more complicated geological structures to extract oil (which we may well see).

    Hmm, I think thats about it.
