The Global Energy Crisis Is Going To Take “The Everything Shortage” To An Entirely New Level

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

This is going to be one tough winter.  On top of everything else we are facing, a very alarming energy crisis is rapidly growing all over the world.  Supplies of natural gas and coal are getting tighter by the day, and this is dramatically affecting manufacturing in major exporters such as China.  So that means that less stuff is going to be coming across the ocean in the months ahead, and that means that the shortages in our stores are going to be getting even worse.  This is really happening, and we are going to have to deal with it.

Delingpole: Global Warming Shock. Antarctica Posts Coldest Winter Since Records Began

by James Delingpole, Breitbart:

Antarctica has posted its coldest winter since records began in 1957 with average temperatures of -61.1 ° C. The previous record was -60.6°C in 1976.

According to a shocked Washington Post:

The chill was exceptional, even for the coldest location on the planet.

The average temperature at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station between April and September, a frigid minus-78 degrees (minus-61 Celsius), was the coldest on record, dating back to 1957. This was 4.5 degrees lower than the most recent 30-year average.

The reason WaPo is shocked, obviously, is because according to the alarmist narrative the polar ice caps are supposed to be getting warmer, not colder.

Can Uranium Lead the Way?

by Craig Hemke, Sprott Money:

Spot uranium prices are making multi-year highs in a supply squeeze that is drawing significant media attention. Does this foreshadow future events in gold and silver?

First of all, if you’ve followed the uranium market for the past few months, this recent surge in price should not come as a surprise. Sprott Inc. announced in late April that it was acquiring the Uranium Participation Corporation, and later announcements made clear they intended to make a significant investment in physical uranium.

Magical Thinking About Green Energy

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

The incentives must change from “waste is growth” to hyper-efficiency, conservation, right to repair and manufactured objects engineered to last a generation or longer and be recyclable at scale.

Humans like novelty but don’t like change. It’s easy to confuse the two. When we say, “I need a change,” what we mean is “I’d like to be refreshed by some novelty,” not “I want all the uncertainty, ambiguity and potential for errors and losses that come with change.”

Humans like a new model of truck (novelty) but don’t like their truck is taken away (change).
