free html hit counter Peak Oil Debunked: 419. SORRY FOR THE GLITCH!

Tuesday, September 01, 2009


Some readers noticed that I was briefly branded as a malware site by Google yesterday. The site is back to normal now, but let me explain. It seems I had a hot linked jpg of a Cadillac on a page from 4 years ago, and that jpg was being hosted by a malware site. I deleted the link, and was certified A-OK by Google this morning.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope you'll stay tuned. I've got some good new posts in the oven which I'll start posting later today.

As always, thanks for reading and supporting Peak Oil Debunked!

I thought it was because of the occasional, er, sassiness of the content. Ex: "Twilight in the desert, my ass..."

Great site, anyway.

More ammunition:

Notice the depth they drilled to, over 10,000 meters! That is 10 kilometres underground. I wonder how the dead dinosaurs got down there.


Keep up the good fight.

I chuckled when I read the reason why the site was deemed hilarious. Thanks for the quick update.

we are so screwed...oil/food/fresh water/fish all set to run out within our lifetimes. Oil will be this decade, at which point the die off will begin. Check out this newest article in gizmag (graciously linked from LATOC):

We're Dead

You are all fools, it's both ironic and iconic that JD is blogging from a country that needs to import most of it's fuel and food. You will be one of the first countries to perish :(

What exactly are you trying to accomplish by coming to this blog and calling names ricefarmer? Does it make you feel somehow superior?

I would guess everyone on this blog takes resource depletion very seriously or they would not be here in the first place. This blogs debunks the 'everything will be mad max' of peak oil & nothing more.

What the world needs less of is people like you and your negative views! It's people like YOU that proclaim nothing will change so we all must die that will ensure we stay on the same path. If you want to see where the greatest problem with humanity lies, LOOK IN THE MIRROR! Let me guess, you are one of those wonderful people that think a dieoff would be awesome, lousy schmuck!

riceFarmer is just a doomer troll dropping by for a few laughs. He says that stuff to get a rise out of you.

riceFarmer: I haven't the slightest worry about running out of oil, food, water and fish in my lifetime.

Oil: The Kjell Aleklett, the President of ASPO, predicts that oil production in 2030 (21 years from now) will be at 90% of today's level. That's from a pessimist at the leading peak oil organization in the world today.

Water: Yah, that one's funny. Do you have any idea how much it rains in Japan? Hit the snooze button.

Fish: I eat a lot of fish, but I can't help but notice that 90% of it comes from aquaculture and fish farms. No biggie. The same process happened on land hundreds if not thousands of years ago. The wild buffalo got harvested to death, and replaced by domestic cattle.

Food: Yes, the Japanese import about half their calories. But then again, they eat about twice as many calories as they should, and way too much meat. Can't say I'm real worried.

You will be one of the first countries to perish :(

Un huh. I think my main risk is dying of boredom, listening to hicks like you prattle on about my impending death for the next 20 years.

I'll tell you what: Why don't you just save it all up, and post a big deluxe comment when the oil, water, fish and food actually do run out, and Japan perishes?

“we are so screwed...oil/food/fresh water/fish all set to run out within our lifetimes. Oil will be this decade, at which point the die off will begin.”

Here’s another scenario to warm the cockles of your little doomer heart, Rice Farmer:

"In summary, a zombie outbreak is likely to lead to the collapse of civilisation, unless it is dealt with quickly. While aggressive quarantine may contain the epidemic, or a cure may lead to coexistence of humans and zombies, the most effective way to contain the rise of the undead is to hit hard and hit often.

"As seen in the movies, it is imperative that zombies are dealt with quickly, or else we are all in a great deal of trouble."

There you have it. We must prepare for the Zombification epidemic, or else we are so screwed! LOL ;)

I wonder if he'll ever get anything right.
It's ironic because on another site I was listening to them go "oh the 3 billion barrels discovered in the gulf amount to like one month of global consumption". After I pointed out that 3 billion barrels equates to holding off peak by another year or two all by itself because we don't need to replace ALL of the production, only that which is lost and not substituted.
The response basically summed to "yeah, well simmons said we're so screwed so it must be true"

"We are so screwed".

I love this line. It typifies the LATOC style doomers.

In fact I think I'm going to see if I can find a T-shirt with that on it.

FYI dumbass doomer loser:
The "dieoff" has been ongoing for a few decades in sub-saharan africa and other assorted overpopulated regions.
It's NOT because of oil.
When it accelerates because the already overstretched populations in these regions double once more from 2 billion to 4 billion, guess what? More of them will starve, and it will STILL be nothing to do with peak oil.

As to any of us in North America or Japan or Europe being part of the so called peak oil die-off?
We will hardly notice.

We are the most productive regions of the world. Even if we end up with less food for export from e.g. butter mountains and wine lakes we will still have enough so I don't think any putative dieoff is coming to a theater near you any time soon. And that's completely discounting the productivity gains coming down the line for grain crops in the next ten years that are absolutely baked in to the cake.

But if you insist that "we're so screwed" I'll be happy to sell you a few acres in Russia and some MREs....
