#Scarcity --Humanity's Final Chapter



“Oil depletion and climate change will create an entirely new context in which political struggles will be played out . Within that context, it is not just freedom, democracy and equality that are at stake, but the survival of billions of humans and of whole ecosystems”

Richard Heinberg, Powerdown

Scarcity   Humanity’s Final Chapter*      "Diminishing Returns"  

Here is another one of our top authors and books, whose post has been attracting a lot of international traffic over the past six months. So again, we will save you the inconvenience of searching the FFI site, and re post it here.

It is important for all of us to understand the state of this planet and where mainstream economic doctrine and the economic system it authored is taking humanity.Not only are we on the verge of running out of oil in forty to fifty years, but we also coincidentally face exhausting most other key minerals required for the consumer industrial complex.  A complex designed by naive thespians who practiced their dark art of economics in despairing satanic shadows. Will their "invisible hand" save of us from a certain fate? Or perhaps there is another Santa Claus in the wings to be brewed with the words of these crafty sorcerers?

Economists long ignored inconvenient physical and mathematically  realities along with the laws of the universe that creates the entropic behaviour, pointed out by Paul Chefurka, in Paradise Lost, that governs all species on all planets.There are no dispensations in physics. These concepts alone are more important to understand and apply than any other knowledge we have ever uncovered during our short planetary journey. 

So if Chris Clugston, Paul Chefurka and Richard Hienberg, along with all the other Peak Everything believers are right - then a very grim time awaits our species in a few short decades. So please take a little bit of time to think about the billions of our fellows, our grandchildren, or even our children, who will be literally left out in cold and in the dark. What should we say to them as they grimace with their lonely moments of fate -  moments that we hold  unquestionable responsibilities for.

Again, take a little time to put yourself in their shoes and imagine what they could face, when billions of people are left with an empty cupboard to find their way. It will be no Hollywood story - it will be their reality of blank stares.

What will the economists say then ? And us, what do we say?  Sorry?

Somehow, apologies can never be enough...
