Putin’s Great Energy Heist

I finished writing When Gog Comes two weeks before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In that book, I asked:

What happens when a strong nation needs what a weak nation has?

Ukraine looked weak, and they had what Putin wanted. So, he chose to invade.

What was it that Ukraine had, that Putin wanted?

The second largest natural gas reserves in Europe. The sixth largest coal reserves in the world. Plenty of oil.

Russia wants what Ukraine has, so they went to war to get it. Unfortunately, this will not be the last energy war.

The ride of the Red Horse, was never going to be very fun.

When Foundations are Destroyed

I started Omega Shock more than ten years ago, because I saw that we were in a lot of trouble. Suffering, violence and death were coming, and I didn’t want any of you to be caught by it.

Unfortunately, what I warned about, is now here.

Of course, my track record on timing is terrible, so I’m hoping that what I see now will be pushed back a bit. I really don’t want to live through what’s coming, but it’s not like any of us have a choice.

The foundations are crumbling.

Brace for impact.

Violence and Famine

Three weeks ago, Putin turned the world upside down. That decision was made months ago, and we are beginning to see the outline of what’s coming. And, the poor will suffer terribly.

Those countries who import food will be hurt the most. And, our first sign of trouble will be violence in the streets. Those who can’t feed their kids, will tear their governments apart. But, it doesn’t end with food.

The global financial system will break. The dollar’s power will collapse – along with American hegemony. And, I’m not sure that Ukraine is going to win this war.

Scarcity and Famine

Having already proven unable to meet even the smallest threat, our civilization now faces something that will destroy our way of life:

Scarcity and Famine

Few governments and civilizations ever survive such calamity, and our turn has come. You might not feel the effect of this disaster right now. It might take months or even years to see it for yourself, but I hear the hoof beat of the black horse in our streets.

Natural gas supplies are tight, and China is already banning phosphate exports to ensure domestic fertilizer supply. This and more will ultimately mean starvation and unrest in the Third World – and eventually, violence and mayhem at your doorstep.

The Madness of Babylon

You and I live in a dystopian nightmare. We traverse a world of madness that howls from every TV, PC and cell phone – while brain-eating delusions consume the minds of friends and family. Our neighbors and coworkers bellow their infected thoughts across Facebook and Twitter, and shriek in outrage if we disagree. And, when one mass delusion dies away, another quickly takes its place.

History is full of mass delusions, but they have never been this widespread. For the first time in history, more than a billion people are terrified of one thing. And, I think that we should talk about this Madness of Babylon.
