Nick Griffin at Klu Klux Klan rally

"And the British National Party isn't about selling out its ideas, which are your ideas too. "

Wow... the most worrying thing about Peak Oil for me is that extremists like Griffin will gain more followers as we hit recession after recession.

Also - good Times article on Nick's recent talk on the BBC about his parties supposed "170,000 year old British indigenous people" here:
Nick Griffins Bad Science

Full transcript, my emphasis:

"There's a difference between selling out your ideas and selling your ideas. And the British National Party isn't about selling out its ideas, which are your ideas too. But we are determined now to sell them.

"And that means, basically, to use the saleable words, as I say - freedom, security, identity, democracy. Nobody can criticize them. Nobody can come at you and attack you on those ideas. They are saleable.

"Perhaps one day, once by being rather more subtle, we've got ourselves into a position where we control the British broadcasting media.

"Then perhaps one day the British people might change their minds, and say: Yes, every last one must go!

"Perhaps they will one day. But if you hold that out as your sole aim to start with, you're gonna get absolutely nowhere.

"So, instead of talking about 'racial purity', we talk about 'identity'."

(Griffin is addressing the American Friends of the BNP at a meeting hosted by ex-KKK leader, David Duke)

ClubOrlov: The Slope of Dysfunction

Dmitri Orlov laying it down like he does:

"Ever eager to present a hopeful vision, I will say here and now that I believe this scenario to be entirely plausible... but it requires alien intervention. As Russian oil production was saved by foreigners, so Earthling oil production must be be saved by aliens from outer space."

Foreign Policy: The Land of No Smiles

Mind-blowing photo essay!

"SHOP GIRL: This is shopping in North Korea. The clerk sits in the dark, unheated special store, waiting to turn on the lights for foreigners, the only permitted customers. “She’s wearing a ski jacket or parka; the rest of this time they’re sitting there with the lights off, freezing,” van Houtryve says. The goods—toys, televisions, and the like—are imported from China. The store only accepts euros."

"When van Houtryve approached North Koreans, they walked off or averted their eyes. He never once photographed a smile. Even children ran away from him. “They’d turn and notice me and immediately bolt off—as if a wolf had come up to them.”
Foreign Policy: The Land of No Smiles



"The world is fragmenting, badly. Gird yourself for a new Dark Age."
Nice article by Parag Khanna:

"Many see the global economic crisis as proof that we live in one world. But as countries stumble to right the wrongs of the corporate masters of the universe, they are driving us right back to a future that looks like nothing more than a new Middle Ages, that centuries-long period of amorphous conflict from the fifth to the 15th century when city-states mattered as much as countries."

In America for kicks... right now listening to Son House 'Empire State' and it's blowing my mind... got limited internet access so here's a log:

5th April
NY is a bizarre place - feels like I'm witnessing the end of an era right in the heart of the Empire here... as the oil price creeps back up again and the high-streets get boarded up - already! Seems like a
quarter of the shops have foreclosed downtown.

Fascinating city though, Chinatown and Little Italy are bursting with colour and you get the feeling the people aren't going to quit no matter how bad things get... be interesting to see how things pan out
for the 150 million suburban folk in this country as the energy runs out..

7th April
Visiting my mate Christian Nold's art project in Bethlehem PA, an excellent community focused physiological stress map something along these lines... it's a post-industrial town and the current development plan focuses around, can you believe it - a CASINO, in this economic climate! Interesting to see the wider community's thoughts on the situation develop.

8th April
Just been chatting onna email with Caryl Johnston who I will visit next week in Philly - she wrote a very interesting post-peak-oil book, "After the Crash"...

Also, will be playing a matinee solo gig at Silent Barn in Brooklyn on Friday:

Orlov smackdown on William Halal

Pretty hilarious interview here featuring William Halal and Dmitri Orlov. Halal seems to think such mind-numbing wonders as space-tourism are the wave of the future (thanks, Branson) and is generally cut down to size by Orlov - it sounds like he's starting to doubt his mantra-like rhetoric of "the experts, the experts" by the end of the show, but it's a pity his air-headed sensibilities can't fully appreciate the biting satire that Orlov lays down for him.
"I don't care what these billionaires do with their money - if they pile it on the ground and burn it or fly themselves around in a rocket - they're obviously not doing anything useful with it."
(Paraphrased from Orlov)

PowerSwitch :: View topic - The case for a slow transformation rather than a fast crash

Persuasive post on an excellent forum:
"Future historians might indeed call the coming transformations of our societies a "crash", but it is not unthinkable that it will be a slow and gradual process, and that the generations who live trough it dont percieve it as a crash at all. We have a tremendous way to go before we actually start to die off on a grand scale. Our material standard of living could propably be reduced to less than 5% of what it is today before we get to starvation. "

Short Term Invstment - Long Term Security

This website blew my mind - they are marketing this warplane like it's some kind of charity mission...
"That's right brothers and sisters - old, fat, black, or female - you too can find a GREEAT job making hi-tech death for Infidels.... and America NEEDS these jobs - reach out in your heart, and just pray, children - repeat after me -

'Verily, we will have this Rrraptor .... and yay, it will preserve the right to buy twinkies on credit for Americans everywhere, and yay, it will deliver high yield explosives unto the heads of non-believers, it will produce 10000's of USEFUL JOBS for TRUE BELIEVERS.... Nations of Evil-Doers will quake in FEAR before our might, but yay, they will love us, for we are The Land of The Free, and the Home of DISNEYLAND - SAY AMEN!"

Heinberg laying it down like he does:

Permit me to make the formal introduction: Industrial society, meet wall; wall, meet industrial society."

You never know, renewable resources just might save the day:

"Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital reportedly has signed a deal to supply Norwegian entrepreneur Lauri Venoy with 3,000 gallons-per-week of liposuction leftovers harvested by its clinics. This bio-fat could produce 2,600 gallons of biodiesel, sufficient to fuel a Hummer for a year."

Failing ocean current raises fears of mini ice age - environment - 30 November 2005 - New Scientist

This was a while ago but made interesting reading this morning - horizontal snowfall outside! Anyone heard of an update? Couldn't find any..

"The last shutdown, which prompted a temperature drop of 5°C to 10°C in western Europe, was probably at the end of the last ice age, 12,000 years ago. There may also have been a slowing of Atlantic circulation during the Little Ice Age, which lasted sporadically from 1300 to about 1850 and created temperatures low enough to freeze the River Thames in London."

Wisdom of the Elders

This guy is heavy.

Some great quotes in here: “Fate is what happens when innumerable people make innumerable small decisions about other matters that have a collective cumulative effect that nobody intended.”
C. Wright Mills

Content is pretty terrifying, but I like his attitude, and the way he points out that feeling guilty about the situation we are in as a species is not a very useful way to go... he makes the analogy of a friend's dying mother who got involved in a religion that taught her she had contracted her disease due to lack of faith - and spent her final weeks in guilt-ridden misery.

He suggests that there's not much point in humanity doing the same - we children of the fossil-fuel age were pretty innocent in our decisions. Obviously we still need to do anything we can to mitigate the crash we are now facing, but we might as well do it with a smile on our faces!

He's definitely not an 'entertainer' but I recommend you put this on while you're doing the washing up or something.

Hey, doing another talk this Saturday at the excellent Temporary School of Thought -

The Fun Side of Petrocollapse
A light-hearted take on the end of the world as we know it

Why did the economy just start falling apart? Where are we headed and what can we do about it? While the media blather on about the latest bailouts, the real story continues to unfold. Amazingly, there is a connection between the Mayan empire, cheez doodles and the Energy/Economic/Climate Crises!
