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.
