Demand isn’t what we want, it’s what we can afford.
Supply isn’t what we need, it’s what’s available.
Everything we depend on depends on energy.
Renewable energy depends on non-renewable energy.
The supply of anything non-renewable must peak and then decline.
Energy decline begins as falling EROI with rising debt to support demand and supply.
Then interest rates fall to zero or negative because growth is not possible with low EROI.
We are here.
Then something really bad happens because we allowed debt to get so high.
We should be reducing debt and using what wealth we have left to prepare.
It’s not that complicated.
Why wasn’t this discussed in the presidential debate?
What could be more important?
Maybe climate change but denial prevented that from being discussed too.
