I didn’t do an article yesterday because I needed to spend time doing research. I had an idea that Peak Oil was still out there, ready to spring on us, after hearing Steve St. Angelo talk about fracking hype. But, I needed to make sure.
Unfortunately, now I’m sure.
Peak Oil is alive and well on planet Earth, and it is about to combine with three different disaster cycles to do unimaginable damage to us. And, just like the crises of the recent past, we’ve papered over the problem with debt and lies. And now, this downward spiral is going to turn into a catastrophe.

Disaster Cycles Converge with Peak Oil – For a Perfect Storm
When I ran into Martin Armstrong’s work, I was impressed by what he had to say about cycles. His models had an uncanny ability to predict the future, and the future that they were predicting was grim, very grim. So, I wrote about them:
Three Disaster Cycles
Martin Armstrong is telling us that three incredibly important cycles are hitting us almost all at once. The 8.6 year economic cycle will turn down and cause a financial collapse toward the end of 2015. And, for the 25 year war cycle and for the 300 year civil war cycle, BOTH of those cycles hit us this year.
THAT was headforthehills news from someone with an excellent track record for getting things right. But, unfortunately, I uncovered ANOTHER person with an excellent track record for getting things right.
His name is Charles Nenner, and I wrote about what he had to say, here:
In fact, Charles is probably even MORE pessimistic than Martin. And BOTH of them have something awful to say. But, it didn’t stop even there.
Demographics expert Harry Dent, Jr. offered his own observations, and I wrote about it here:
That demographic bomb is going to do an amazing amount of damage to us and to the economy. And, the financial markets are going to get hurt very badly by it.
And then, yesterday, as I thought about all of that, I realized that there was something else that was probably lurking out there in the dark recesses of our future:
I’ve written about it before, and you can see that it is one of the four big challenges facing the US and the world at large. You can read what I’ve had to say about Peak Oil and the resource shocks that are barreling down on us, here:
And, go to the About OmegaShock page for a description of the four (soon 5+) big challenges that we face:
The problem is that a lot of fracking hype and hyperbole has been sloshing about, and Wall Street money has been chasing it. It has been a feeding frenzy, but it has slowly dawned on some of the ‘feeders’ that they aren’t getting what they paid for.
Up to now, mainstream media has been trumpeting the glorious message of the death of Peak Oil at the hands of the frackers. And, the artificial suppression of interest rates by the Federal Reserve has allowed the companies doing the fracking to keep borrowing and borrowing and borrowing.
The problem is that most (if not all) of the fracking profits have evaporated.
For a short time, fracking distorted the Peak Oil forecast. Experts thought that the peak in world oil production would occur in 2005, and that did happen – for normal sources of oil. Conventional oil production has been in decline since 2005, and it has been unconventional oil that has made up the difference.
So, the question then, is:
When does Peak Oil REALLY happen?
When Was/Is Peak Oil?
Apparently, when you add in unconventional sources of oil (like fracking), Peak Oil happened two years ago. However, some positive souls estimate that Peak Oil will arrive this year, or the next.
Unfortunately, this disagreement over dates isn’t all that important because, no matter how you slice it, it means death for America and civilization, as we know it. And yes, it really is that bad.
The Perfect Storm
If we hadn’t allowed the government and media to lie to us, we might have managed something of a transition. We could have gone in for more coal usage. We could have done more with solar and wind power. We could have taken a bit of the flood of money going to the banks and set up some kind of infrastructure to soften the blow that is about to fall on us.
But, we didn’t do that.
Now, as the financial cycle gets ready to start downward… as the war cycles heat up… as the demographic shock begins to hit us…
…we are going to be hammered by a Peak Oil Apocalypse.
This Means War
Please understand that this means war, death and destruction on an unimaginable scale. Everyone is going to fight for what they see as ‘their share’ of what is left of the world’s oil reserves – especially the United States. And, that fight has already started.
The coup staged by the US State Department and the CIA in Ukraine was a part of that war. The US and Saudi involvement in the Syrian war is a part of that – as is the CIA funding of terrorist groups in Africa and Asia. But, that is about to change.
Now that our financial chickens are coming home to roost, world conflict is going to explode. I can’t see the psychopaths running the US government and the financial system being passive in the face of the destruction of their wealth and power. So, they are going to take the gloves off.
Oh, the US Navy and Air Force are powerful entities, and the US Army still has teeth. So, there will be some early wins in the coming war. But, as I’ve said before, a powerful military cannot function without a prosperous economy, and America doesn’t have that.
Worse, the US is not prepared for the kind of war her enemies are ready to fight.
Where we sit now is just the calm before the storm. The cycles of financial collapse, war and demographics converge at a moment in time when Peak Oil finally makes its appearance. It would be hard to find a more catastrophic ‘perfect storm’.
The clouds of this ‘perfect storm’ are on the horizon, but we cannot be completely sure when it will arrive. It could be this Fall. It could be next year. If we’re really lucky, we might even have more time than that – but, I doubt it.
Do not look around you and expect tomorrow to be like today. It will not. You will look back one day and realize that this was the pinnacle of our civilization – the top. Nothing will ever be this good again, until the Lord returns.
Are you ready for this?
