Poisoning the well, poisonous water - worlwide! But don't forget the poisonous air - worlwide!

Living beings drink poisonous water and breathe poisonous air!

Living beings feed on poison!

Living beings live on poison!

How long will that last?

Peak oil is a scientific fact because oil is a limited resource, and has already taken place in various ways. That is,

Discoveries peaked in 1964.

U.S. oil production peaked in 1970.

World per capita oil production peaked in 1979.

Two-thirds of oil-producing countries have reached or have gone past peak production.

Crude oil production peaked in 2005.

U.S. shale oil production will peak in 2020.

In addition to these,

Oil (and energy) consumption and demand are rising worldwide because of a growing middle class in BRIC and developing countries.

In order to maintain global economic growth, we will need to find the equivalent of one Saudi Arabia in new oil every seven years.

Shale oil and other energy sources have low energy returns. Because of that and a growing middle class, we will need the equivalent of one Saudi Arabia every three to four years.

Since 2005, the five major oil players have seen their production drop by 25 pct.

From 2005 to 2012, capital expenditures doubled for the oil industry compared to 1998 to 2005, but oil production barely rose.

The oil price is now triple what it was before 2005.

Peak oil is NOT a scientific fact because WE DO NOT KNOW WHETHER oil is a limited resource.

But we also do NOT know whether oil is NOT a limited resource.

Combine the human's fight against nature (exploitation of nature) with the techno-creditism, and you will get the reasons for the huge chaos in the future, regardless whether the "Olduvai Theory" is false or not.

- Markets are never really "free".
- Globalism means that the global banks / corporations (super-organisms) dominate and blackmail the states (nations).
- Unregulated competition leads to the plunder of all resources, especially of all human resources.
- This leads to the situation that all acquirable resources of this planet are owned by very few persons or super-organisms.
