RIP Jay Hanson!

From Peak Oil Barrel:

Sat, 2019-04-06 09:53 — Sheila Newman

I have just learned, regretfully, of the death of Jay Hanson. My first report was that it occurred in a diving accident. Subsequently, it has been clarified that he fell ill after diving, and died that night. Jay Hanson lived in Hawaii. He was the founder of multiple energy resources or peak oil lists from the 1990s, starting with the incredibly popular Dieoff website and DieOff list which looked at peak oil, population numbers, and scarcity. An intermediate list was Killer Ape-Peak Oil. The last list of which we are aware was [America2Point0] which Hanson closed ‘until further notice’ on 20 December 2016. Hanson was teetotal for many years and studied evolutionary psychology. He believed that humans would be ultimately unable to deal with resource scarcity or human induced climate change because they could not cope with major environmental and evolutionary problems involving themselves.

His list gave rise to a number of other lists, such as EnergyResources and ERT, as people formed different views on the energy resources and human survival outlook.

Jay Hanson’s dieoff page can be found in its old and new forms by clicking on the links: http://www.jayhanson.org/oldindex.htm and http://www.dieoff.org/. There is a 2003 interview by Scott Meredith at http://www.oilcrash.com/articles/hansn_02.htm. It was my own participation in the DieOff list and subsequent ones, especially EnergyResources, and then the Australian Running on Empty one (roeoz) that caused me to edit two editions of a multi-scientist authored book called The Final Energy Crisis, Pluto Press, UK, 2005 and 2008. The first edition was initiated and partly edited by Andrew McKillop, and finished by me, Sheila Newman, and the second edition, in 2008, was entirely edited by me, with mostly new articles.

The whole ‘peak oil’ and energy resources debate or story or study is not over by any means. Fracking is a desperate and ruinous sort of pause, which has been used to crank up demand. It seems that we have already entered the oil wars, however most of the public have little ability to understand this, due to the influence of the corporate press and similar on our education systems, which focus less and less on science and history. US-NATO activity in the Middle East, the East and South America – notable threats towards Venezuela – are signs of this.

Jay Hanson was a charismatic internet figure, and it seems odd today that his death is not being widely reported. He was likable, trenchant and a little despotic, with many avid and admiring acolytes and friends.

This article and obituary is a very quick response to the sad news. My condolences to his family and close friends, and to the movement he began.

Jay Hanson, my internet friend. He was probably more responsible for starting the whole Peak Oil Awareness Movement than any other person. May he rest in peace.

Thanks to Sheila Newman. Without your reporting, Jay’s death would have gone completely unreported.

 

Captain Caveman Adds:

Thanks for the Wisdom and Insights! Jay Hanson was one of the Great Thinkers of our time, and will be missed. RIP – Jay.

Let’s Have a War!

Lie after lie…. time after time….

From Patch: https://patch.com/wisconsin/mountpleasant/wisconsin-overpaid-foxconn-deal-washington-post-says

Officials in Wisconsin say they had to spend big in order to fend off six other states. The result? They say that Foxconn will build a $10 billion electronics plant in Mount Pleasant that would generate 22,000 indirect jobs and 13,000 factory jobs that will average nearly $54,000 a year in salary.

“13,000 good-paying, family-supporting jobs. That’s just the start and up to 22,000 jobs that are either induced or indirect because of it. All of you in this area, this region know, have heard the stories. All the people say, ‘I’m going to start to do business over there. I’m going to open a restaurant over there. I’m going to open a hotel over there. I’m going to build a new home over there,” Walker said during the incentive package signing ceremony.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Janesville) was also effusive of his praise for what Foxconn could do to transform Wisconsin’s economy.

“We’re going to look back at this day, at this moment, in the future and see that this was a very important turning point for southeastern Wisconsin,” he said.

But that number pales in comparison when Amazon said in mid-November that New York, Virginia and Tennessee will split 55,000 jobs with average salaries of $150,000.

Walker Out, Evers In … and what it means for Foxconn deal

Fueled by a resurgent Democratic base, Tony Evers defeated Gov. Scott Walker, denying the Republican incumbent a third term in office. Yet Evers unexpected victory over Walker could have a ripple effect on Walker’s biggest deal: the approximately $2.85 billion financial incentive package to lure the electronics manufacturer to Racine County.

Evers has implied that Foxconn – and the resulting financial incentive package are here to stay, though he said there could be some wiggle room when it came to negotiations.

According to a Milwaukee Biz Times article, Evers said that he would look at renegotiating parts of the contract with Foxconn with an eye on fortifying the state’s position on wages, Milwaukee-area hiring, public transportation and the plant’s energy efficiency. He said he would do so by using local transportation projects as negotiating leverage against Foxconn.

“I would really focus on compelling them to be good corporate citizens,” he said. “I don’t believe they want to be viewed as bad actors,” he said.

But shortly afterward, Evers ratcheted up his rhetoric in the Biz Times, indicating a much stronger stance than before.

“That’s a lousy investment,” Evers said in the Biz Times of Wisconsin’s $2.85 billion incentive package that Walker’s administration passed in November 2017. “Foxconn has already backtracked on several of its promises and is not being held accountable by Walker. When I’m governor, we’ll hold Foxconn’s feet to the fire and make sure that Wisconsin is getting the best return on investment possible.”

Evers has also gone public with his intention to revise air pollution regulations around the plant. “I’ve had many scientists look at that approval process and they’ve found many flaws with that decision made by the Department of Natural Resources,”Evers told the Wisconsin State Journal during the campaign. “So I would take that information and the approval and say, ‘How can we get from here to here?'”

Evers has gone on record saying that he favors disbanding the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation – another one of Walker’s signature economic development projects.

Walkers best Economic Development? ENDLESS WAR!

With Walker gone, State Representative Boss Vos, City of Racine Mayor Cory Mason, Mount Pleasant Village President Davis DeGroot, in addition to most of the Mount Pleasant Village Board must be given the boot!

It is time to end the Looting of SE WI by Government Officials!

Lyrics:

There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many [Repeat: x2]
Let’s have a war
So you can go and die!
Let’s have a war!
We could all use the money!
Let’s have a war!
We need the space!
Let’s have a war!
Clean out this place!
It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many
There’s so many of us
There’s so many of us
There’s so many [Repeat: x2]
Let’s have a war!
Jack up the Dow Jones!
Let’s have a war!
It can start in New Jersey!
Let’s have a war!
Blame it on the middle-class!
Let’s have a war!
We’re like rats in a cage!
It already started in the city!
Suburbia will be just as easy!
There’s so many of us
There’s so

 

 

Skool Is a Failed Social Program!

Commentator SHIELD has it absolutely correct – Skool is a FAILED Social Program!

shield

It is way past time to stop spending our tax dollars like drunk sailors ….. Schools are obsolete, the ONLY reason no one is seriously looking at On line education for ALL after 6th grade is it ends the teaching profession as we know it…They would have to compete for On line teaching programs and only the best ones would be used…Guess what they would have to actually teach and instill learning..On line teaching would end law suits, Bullying which is so over board thanks to liberals…shrinks, and nurses on campus,…breakfast ,lunch and dinner ….face it kids do not want to be in school they want their toys and computers and I phones….Plus students do not learn in brick and mortar schools as we all know by the results…School is a failed social program…it is parenting at school with a food program and brainwashing at what to believe and lack of American history and tradition…they teach subversion and anarchy as being OK..There is no GOD in our schools anymore at all…and no discipline demanded …kids have no fear of consequences because they know nothing happens to them because some liberal has a program or counseling session for them and a lot of excuses and blame for their failure instead of accepting the fact that You yourself are responsible for most of the results of your own choices.

AGREED!

Eat the Rich!

Aerosmith….

Well I woke up this morning
On the wrong side of the bed
And how I got to thinkin’
About all those things you said
About ordinary people
And how they make you sick
And if callin’ names kicks back on you
Then I hope this does the trick
‘Cause I’m sick of your complainin’
About how many bills
And I’m sick of all your bitchin’
‘Bout your poodles and your pills
And I just can’t see no humor
About your way of life
And I think I can do more for you
With this here fork and knife
Eat the rich
There’s only one thing that they are good for
Eat the rich
Take one bite now – come back for more
Eat the rich
I gotta get this off my chest
Eat the rich
Take one bite now – spit out the rest
So I called up my head shrinker
And I told him what I’d done
He said
