115. MIKE RUPPERT, PEAK OIL STOOGE

For those of you just coming to peak oil, Mike Ruppert is one of the top merchants of peak oil doom -- right up there with Matt Savinar and LATOC.

To put it bluntly, Ruppert is a conspiracy theorist paranoid, and a shameless media whore, with well-documented mental health issues.

To give you an idea of how reliable Ruppert's predictions are, check this out:
While I had serious doubts about America's ability to recover from Katrina, I am certain that - barring divine intervention - the United States is finished; not only as a superpower, but possibly even as a single, unified nation with the arrival of Hurricane Rita.

I read his article in full and have read many other materials from him. The man is a certifiable nutjob. His handling of September 11th and Mike Vreeland shows this idiots journalistic abilities and speaks volumes on his state of mind and intelligence levels. The man is a hack preying on the fears and ignorance of others. I pity the fool who pays for the so called information this man provides. His appearances at many September 11th hearings show him as nothing but a smirking, arrogant doof. Inside sources? Yeah right Mike. Better watch out, if old Rupe see this he may sue.

Actually, that comment seems quite accurate.

I thought he was a nut but now I'm not so sure anymore.

I actually hate his "all you can do is pray" -attitude, as there are things we can do, but I think here he has it nailed.

A classic 'Over egging the pudding' man. While very dramatic, the predictions just make POers look silly and they are consequently not taken seriously.

Where is the evidence you have of Ruppert's mental health issues? If you are to have any credibility at all, you need to back up what you say. PO may be a looming catastrophe or it may be bullshit. Ad hominem attacks with no documentation are an insult to your readers who are searching for the truth. I want to know if Ruppert is a nut job or not. You are not helping me to find the answer. Maybe you you're just another liar. As long as we have pundits lying and distorting the facts on both sides of PO we will never find the truth.

This blog entry is a disingenuous smear. This is how you "Debunk peak oil hype with facts"? What are you basing these characterizations on?

To the readers of this blog and: the writer of this entry ("JD") is counting on you knowing nothing about Michael Ruppert. Michael Ruppert is a former LAPD narcotics investigator. He is entirely upfront about who he is and where he gets his information. He sources his findings as thoroughly as any journalist I have ever seen. His newsletter, "From The Wilderness", is has 16,000 subscribers in over 40 countries, including 60+ members of the U.S. Congress.

I'll tell you what: Re-read this dishonest blog entry one more time, and then go to:

http://www.fromthewilderness.com/about.shtml

Read that, including the "full disclosure" articles, which were written by Ruppert himself.

Furthermore, if you have any inclination to believe the annoymous comment that "His appearances at many September 11th hearings show him as nothing but a smirking, arrogant doof.", look up "The Truth and Lies of 9/11" on google video and watch it and/or read this article by Michael Ruppert, http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ww3/02_11_02_lucy.html

These accusations about Michael Ruppert are transparent lies to anyone with the slightest bit of familiarity with his work. See for yourself.

JD is a retard, in the literal sense, a mind controlled drone who can't hear the truth because he is to afraid to question this reality, which is illusion.

I agree that JD is a retard, we are all drones of the government/media and Ruppert is actually speaking truthfully. PO is not a new thing, it has been an idea behind the scenes since the late 60's I believe when Hubbert, a world renowned geologist realized that our addiction to energy would eventually come to an end. I guess JD truly believes ignorance is bliss.

This is why we are in this predicament in the first place: No one does their own research, they just believe retarded junk like JD has put up online. Watch the documentary Collapse if you have the courage to challenge your own ignorances and you will be give the opportunity to realize how misled you are. Michael Ruppert is one of the few individuals on the planet that know what he is talking about because he truly lives out his questions and finds the truth through much hard work. We will all bear the consequences of the lazy mind driven masses, forutnately there's death and we dont have to suffer this retardedness forever.

God forbid someone stands apart from the crowd and speaks his truth, regardless of the fall-out. Name-callers - are you that committed to your truth? Truth, fact, or in the middle somewhere. It appears obvious to me that the future looks bleak, laden with over popuation and scarce resources. I seriously worry for our yonng. I believe he Michael is definately seeing our future, possibly 50 or 100 years out.

One thing I know for sure. Having worked in a refinery in Houston back in the 1970's when the oil embargo hit, and the fact we couldnot meet our production quots because crude was being delivered from our US fields we did hit our own peak. Since retiring, I have probably read some 150 books from the field of scince from 40 different countries who have no axe to grind with anyone, but getting paid working at different universities to study varous scientific phenomena.
That said, the earth does not have the carrying capacity to live as we do today for eternity. The earth cannot sustain us at the present level of consumption. The exponential function you learn in 6th grade says our population will double by 2040-that's the world population. That approximates 2x as much need for resources the planet just doesn't have. As for oil, given the enormous expsne of getting oil from having to drill 10,000 feet below the Gulf of Mexico tels me that most of the big giant fields are no longer producing what they were. The idea of anything having an endless supply is plain stupid. That kind of ignorance is dangerous.
