About: Chris Martenson's presentation at the Gold & Silver Meeting in Madrid
I am familiar with this material. I've been following Peak Prosperity for 5 years. As I watch this (yet again) I'm stunned. It's now 2019 and it's more relevant than ever. I've been preparing for a far different world than the one I grew up in. Thanks Chris. BUY HIS BOOK "PROSPER". It's excellent.
If the world is being starved of energy, why is oil priced at $65 per barrel, coming off a lower price in the context of a massively debased US dollar?
Exponential curves look the same at every point in history.
The “speeding up” is the same at every point in time.
They are NOT “hockey stick” curves, which have an inflection point and are distinctly different.
Every generation has thought the end of the world was nigh.
For each of us individually, it is, but collectively humans have proven to be very, very innovative at keeping the game going.
That is exactly why we are still here, playing the same game centuries later.
have posted this before and still love watching this seires on youtube.
This is the best presentation I had seen in a long time! Thank you.
predict oil prices to double in 2013, from $100 to $200/bbl. Chris apparently missed the fracking boom in 2011, even if the US production spike is now reversing again. Growing debt apparently hasn't finished its tricks yet, but I believe Chris is right in the longer run, next 5-15 years from 2017.
$25 a barrel in 2016. Who would have thunk it? Don't make predictions like price. Give a date no price or a price, no date. Like Malthus, Martenson is right, but the timing is unpredictable because humans adapt, we do change, only when forced.
This guy is a genius. Period.
why doesnt anyone talk about peak gold. the evidence for that is stronger than peak oil
The cost of fracking a barrel of oil is over $70, so the low price of oil today signifies that the collapse is underway.
I guess he's never heard of fracking, the world is awash in oil, and storage is even becoming full
It seems like CM is presenting a very well thought out plan.
Yet, whose plan?
BS, free energy exists and has exited for quit some time. (see Tesla) People have been driving water powered cars since the 70's - http://henrymakow.com/2013/11/Illuminati-Suppress-Water-Powered-Cars.html
I pull free radiant energy out of the air 24/7 365 with a telsa modified bridge rectifier. If I can do it, what are the greatest minds working in unison capable of? It's all rigged, one big asz conspiracy, think, do some research, always question and investigate what you are told.
According to Patrick Wood, this is part of the NWO. To undermine current governments with agencies, set up a system of currency based on energy production credits and energy use debits and tie your life to it through "Smart" technology. Look him up on youtube.
HIS CHART IS OUTDATED. The fracking boom boosted US oil production past the 1970s peak.
He would be right if he used the 7 year cycle. He would have then recognized that 2015 would be the start year for the collapse of the world economies. Also, manipulation is also a big issue today. The opec nations are very upset with the current administration of the United States and are in punishing mode, and this can last as long as the manipulation lasts. Exponential charts are striking but there are variables that show up just like in the chart he showed and the diversion from what was normal. What is then that explanation? We are in a deflation and it can not be curbed for very long before it collapses, then an exponential hyperinflation will occur which will lead to a lot of violent responses all over the world with the exponential growth of the human population, all which want a comfortable safe lifestyle which may not be possible.
It it possible that this guy is a mouthpiece for Agenda 21?
He couldn't predict the price of a bag of carrots.
... and here we sit, in the middle of 2015, with oil at $52.74 ... makes one wonder.
A couple of things he doesn't seem to take into account (much like the first audience question hinted at):
- The thing about "40 years is the quickest change we've seen", is obviously omitting the fact that all such transitions have been unforced, i.e. incentive-oriented. There's nothing proving that a very fast transition can't be made in the face of absolutely no choice.
- There's very little talk of anything beyond the alternative energy that's already known to be fairly "mundane" (solar, wind, etc...). In particular, thorium/molten-salt reactors seem to be something very few are aware of or willing to talk about. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that the "powers that be" may already have some of those tricks up their sleeves, reserving costly/painful (but effective) deployment until the last minute.
