Kunstlercast this week; interview with Charlie Hall, a professor of biophysical economics

Biophysical economics podcast

JHK shoots the breeze with Charlie Hall, distinguished professor emeritus at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse, NY — just retired last month and founder of the Association for Biophysical Economics. We yak about reality-based economics and the relationship of energy to money.

Charlie Hall learned from the Limits to Growth people in the 1970’s. His work was ignored through the 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s until 2010 when he received several academic awards.

The world was awash in oil between the early 1980’s to 2000’s because the price rises of the 1970’s to 35 a barrel made it economic to drill for oil at that level of EROEI. Those reserves have dried up, and now we are into “fracking,” or oil extraction at a much higher permanent price.

Rochester is the homecity of the professor. It lost its symphony orchestra. The ZOG-BRA Dystopia can’t afford refined things or White things. Whites will have to produce these things for ourselves now.

Vampire. Economy. Epic. Fail. LOL.

  1. Peak Finance says:

    The truth is that no one really knows the price of oil, you can make a case for $25 oil, and you can make a case for $125 oil. For example, The whole fracking thing is driven by bad government policy, because it’s easier to get fracking permits for existing fields then it is for companies to get permits for new exploration, so fracking becomes the new norm. Another example, The government recently arbitrarily shut down new oil development off some shelf in Alaska, that Shell has already spent 4 billion developing. 4 Billion gone and not one drop of oil extracted. List of bad policy goes on and on. Every bad policy is a market distortion that hides true prices.

    On the demand side, gas usage bas plummeted to pre-1984 levels, and electricity use is also dropping, but, where is this reflected in prices? Again bad government policy and in this case most likely money printing has something to do with it.

    This is the true damage to the economy that the ZOG has done, with endless rules, regulations, money printing, and fake science, there is no reliable economic signal that allows the proper setting of prices by the market, and therefore you can’t set proper policy in this environment.

  2. If there really is an economic contraction significant enough to cause noticeable daily changes in the average American’s life, it’s likely to come not from financial issues, but physical limits to resource extraction. Oil is an obvious case, I’ve read a lot of you ag type talk about peak phosphorous, I’ve even heard something about industrial rationing of helium. There may not be enough rare earth metals to provide every Chinaman, African, and Indian (dot not feather) with a brand new smartphone.

    North America, including the USA, Canada, and even perhaps parts of Mexico, are almost uniquely situated, geographically, geologically, and demographically, to thrive in the new environment, probably better than anyplace else on earth.

    North America is still relatively underpopulated, we should fight hard to keep it that way. Stop all immigration, encourage emigration, and provide free birth control/sterilization for non-whites.

    Could upstate NY be repopulated by white homesteaders? Could they escape the new anti-white housing plan by going to towns so small that ZB couldn’t force the Toids to stay there?

      I’m from upstate NY originally. it’s very nice up there, I wish I was still there. I grew up fishing the Hudson.

      • RobRoySimmons says:

        Kuntsler occasionally mentions the unused farms reverting back to nature. Not good row crop country for the beans and corn rackets but I would think they would make decent diversified “hobby farms” for those looking to escape.

      • mindweapon says:

        The way humankind is supposed to farm is to have a variety of crops and livestock, and produce a wide diversity of foods, from meats, eggs, milk, cheese, fruits, veg, seeds (like sunflower seeds for oil and protein) and for that matter, I want to learn how to raise insect larvae using local inputs.
