We’ve established that Peak Oil isn’t a theory. But, did you know that Peak Minerals and Peak Food aren’t theories, either?
No, they ARE NOT theories, and you need to come to terms with this because the decline in resources is going to have a dramatic impact upon your life. We have reached the Peak of Everything.
Gold, Silver, Tin, Platinum, Coal, Uranium and Rare Earths have all hit their peaks and are in decline. But, there’s worse.
Food has also reached its peak. Just take the inputs to food production like water. Did you know that fresh water availability in the US reached its peak in 1980?
Fish and Seafood has peaked.
Topsoil is in decline.
Natural Gas, a key component in fertilizer production, has peaked.
So far, the only thing that hasn’t peaked yet is Copper and Stupidity.
Are you ready for this?
Peak Fish and Seafood
Peak Food and Peak Soil

US Peak Water
Notice that we hit Peak Water in 1980.
