116. DALE ALLEN PFEIFFER WISES UP

Dale Allen Pfeiffer is a top peak oil author/advocate. It appears from his new website that he doesn't want Mike Ruppert in his life anymore:

Maybe it's time the rest of the peak oil community wised up like Dale. Stooges like Ruppert need to be jettisoned if peak oil is to ever gain credence as a serious issue.

Note from JD) Dale has chronicled the whole pathetic saga of his relationship with Mike Ruppert here. It's interesting to note that Ruppert was paying Pfeiffer $1500 a month at one time. Kind of gives you an idea of what the total payroll for the FTW site must be. Lots of spare cash floating around over at that paranoia superstore. Makes you wonder how much Ruppert and Savinar are grossing these days from their peak oil fear-mongering. Maybe Matt Simmons needs to run a little campaign for greater "transparency" in the doom-merchandising sector. :P

Funny how Ruppert doesn't seem to actually know much about oil and energy himself, and is stuggling without ol' Dale.

In the month since I left FTW, Mike Ruppert has tried to milk the Energy Roundtable list for the information he used to receive from me. He has also printed editorials stating that the US is going to collapse within the next few months, implying that all of the recent hurricanes were created intentionally through weather control technology, and suggesting the need for legislated population regulation.

I commend Mr Pfeiffer for seeing the light in regards to Mike Rupport. Rupport is nothing but a parot repeating bits and pieces as he sees fit. I've seen a few rumblings from another former employee of Mikes who referenced his out of control temper and anger management issues. It was estimated by the individual running Wing TV that Ruppert may make upwards of 1 Million dollars yearly from his newsletter subscriptions. Subscriptions Rupport says go directly to some members of Congress. Laughing yet? Not to mention book and DVD sales along with speaking fees. Rupport spouts mad predictions of downfall every few months and then climbs under a rock until all is clear. Weather modification controlling weather? Wow, I suppose next he will tell us little green reptiles from outer space control the highest levels of our government. Maybe someday, I'll get to share a ride with Mike on a black helicoptor on our way to a FEMA containment camp.

Dale:

Jamey ran this alone without clearing it with me. My instructions were that the two stories should run side by side as a dialectic or not at all.

By publishing this I think it's safe to say that you've put FTW out of business for good.

And I just spent money making your travel plans to Dublin while denying myself the trip and trying to pay my medical bills.

You ought to feel stupid and ashamed Dale. You just fucked the best friend you ever had when he did nothing wrong. Jamey has admitted he ran this on his own.

I don't need to retaliate. You're going to spend the rest of your life regretting your little temper tantrum. And you may have successfully ruined both my business and my engagement.

Et Tu Brutus?


One: "Out of business"? How the hell does he figure that? Doesn't seem to have much respect for the working class, if I'm reading him right.

Two: What a self-aggrandizing, borderline-paranoid fuck. PO will, indeed, never be taken seriously until people like him are gone.

BTW, I actually kind of like the general strike idea. It's extreme, but who knows, it might be necessary.

Dale seemed to me much of an idealist whereas Jamey isn't so therefore personalities were bound to clash. Believing that the working class has the power to wield a nation wide stike or the inclination to go along with it is very questionable. Jamey is spot on with what he said and it does not suggest the artical is "spitting on the working class" as Dale implies. The working class has got themselves into alot of trouble by getting into massive amounts of debt to buy cars and houses. Dale says FTW offers no useful advise for the working person, which is not true. As Mike said in the email as options, he suggests the working class to "Get out of debt". That is not unrealistic, and is really the only option. You do not need a house or a car. You can get out of debt by selling your car and house and then renting and catching public transport. Dale has given no option to the working class besides strike. It's unfortunate the situation degraded to such a level and I'm sure if they all discussed their issues before hand none of this would have happened.

I'm also disgusted with the way JD has handled this matter. A simple unbiased post outlining what happened and a link is all that was needed. Instead JD decides to try to turn it into a circus show. Ridiculing and making defamatory remarks about people is something he really seem to enjoy unfortuantly, and his comments could have used alot more tact or no comments whatsoever. There are 3 people at FTW who have had an unfortunate ordeal and all obviously feel bad....the only thing JD can think of doing is capitalising on the situation and attempt to make a public mockery of the people at FTW.

JD, you should consider apologizing, as your post was far out of the realm of human decency and over dramatising the story.

Isn't that the angle of this here blog, what makes it stand out from other peak oil sites? Isn't it what draws you here?

It's the lair of a troll.

JD is obviously James. Note the way they both make frequent use of the ":p".

Anon: JD is in Japan. I am from Nova Scotia, Canada. Right now, it's 4 AM over there.

Lotsa folks use smileys. Can the "JD is posing as other people" rhetoric to make it look like he's making up support for the optimist's side of PO. There's plenty of us, and your tactics smack of tinfoil every time you apply them...!

Dale Allen Pfeiffer did not give up on the issue of peak oil. He gave on Michael Ruppert.
Why don't you do a little research?
