128. FREDDY HUTTER'S ACID TEST
Freddy Hutter is a longstanding critic of Colin Campbell, and the publisher of an outstanding peak oil resource called Trendlines. He had a great post at The Oil Drum this morning, and I hope he doesn't mind my reproducing it here for wider consumption:
Next time u are at a doomster site, look for dates...
In what year will the globe be down to 1 billion?
In what year will we bulldoze the suburbs and use the salvage to rebuild in the city cores?
In what year will North Americans no longer have cars?
Heinberg came to Vancouver last year and told us we should start building massive manufacturing plants in the West for shoes, etc 'cuz soon China and other nations will not be able to find or afford fuel for tankers or freighters. Tell us Richard, in what year will that momentous crossover occur?
In what year will the Antarctic be ice free and similarly, in what year will NYC be under nine metres of water? The Hadley GCM Model says only 26cm (about 10 inches) by 2100!
When "they" start giving time lines, it opens up their rhetoric for challenges. That is the acid test of a good site.Source
