    How to spot if society is DOOMED: Researchers reveal the signs that show civilization is set to collapse
    • Researchers examined archaeological records of the European Neolithic
    • This revealed there were a number of early warning signs before collapse
    • They say the framework could help predict similar fate in modern society

    What Comes After Oil?
    Aug 25

    Posted by sierra2one

    By: Tom Chatham

    If we follow the premise that all things on Earth are finite such as the physical resources we use then we must assume that at some point we will begin to run out of these resources as they are more heavily utilized. Our use of energy is one such item that should be addressed by the average person before we hit the wall of limited and then lack of these resources.

    There are those that think solar and wind will be the salvation of our energy problems but these people fail to take into account the limitations of these energy sources. It still requires energy to extract the raw materials needed to build solar panels and these must be replaced at some point. Wind turbines require steel, concrete, fiberglass and copper just to name a few of the resources needed to make these things work and they too must be replaced every few decades as they wear out.

    One problem with solar that I have talked about to people is the fact that massive amounts of energy must be stored in order for it to power the grid continuously. One person recently calculated that batteries to store enough energy to power the U.S for one day would require batteries covering 923 sq. miles and costing 41 trillion dollars. While I am an advocate of wind and solar I do not believe they are capable of powering our grid reliably. I think their benefits can only be utilized as stand alone systems on individual buildings.

    Those that think solar and wind can replace oil do not understand our energy requirements at the present time and certainly do not understand the power requirements of things such as ships, trains and semi trucks that move the bulk of our commodities around the world. Cheap oil has made the current world trade system possible and the lack of cheap energy will cause a collapse of the status quo. The collapse of our current energy system will cause widespread chaos and depressed living standards if we do not address this issue now. It is for this reason that we need to look forward to the energy we will use in the future.

    Hydrogen is more akin to a storage battery as it takes energy to separate the hydrogen from other elements to utilize in most cases. Fusion is still a promising energy source that we still do not know how to produce and maybe in the future if we figure it out it will change things but that is some time off. Things such as oil, natural gas and coal are heavily used today but they will only last so long and a growing population is using them at a faster rate as time goes on insuring their demise at some point. Nuclear power plants are filled with controversy and their future is uncertain unless something changes.

    If our fossil fuel system begins to erode we will have to fall back on what we know. In this case the most available source of energy available to the population is that age old element, wood. As archaic as it sounds if our energy grid begins to shut down wood may be the go to system for individuals at the local level. A mature wood lot can produce about ¾ of a chord of wood per acre per year. When utilized within these limits it becomes sustainable for the long term.

    A small homestead with a good woodlot and some solar and wind power may be the future we are forced to embrace until some new energy source becomes available in large enough quantities to fulfill our needs on a large scale. Now is the time to begin this conversion before we are forced to do so when the materials we need are no longer available to the masses. There are many people that have made this change and live off the grid today and are very happy about it.

    Wood is also a viable source of energy for vehicles utilized in the local area. Wood gas can provide the energy to power much of the agricultural equipment we need to maintain the food supply. While this is a step back it will likely become a necessity at some point if we wait too long. With wood gas a conservative estimate of wood power indicates about 20 pounds of wood equals a gallon of gasoline when utilized in a motor vehicle. There is some power loss with wood and production efficiencies vary from system to system.

    Much of the population growth of the world has been made possible by the availability of cheap energy and the loss of this cheap energy will cause a drastic adjustment to the population on this planet as we run into resource scarcity. The abundance of food we now produce depends on vast quantities of cheap, available energy. Nature has a way of balancing things out if we refuse to do so on our own. People need to understand this.

    While a small homestead with solar and wind power and equipment powered by wood may not be the ideal plan, it is one you can be working towards while you can do so with minimal disruption to your lifestyle. In the near future if energy prices and availability should become more of an issue than it is now, having alternative energy systems will minimize the effect on your quality of life. I suggest you have a plan that works for you and your family before you are forced into one by events.

    A plan to deal with an energy shortage will not only protect you from a shortage but also from manmade and natural disasters that would curtail or eliminate the timely delivery of energy to the masses. The ability to provide the majority of your own energy needs makes you less vulnerable to shocks that can send society into panic and disrupt many lives. Over time things change. This can be beneficial or detrimental to our well being and your ability to adapt to those changes will determine your quality of life in the years to follow.

    Our energy resources may be stable for many years to come. Then again they could change drastically in a matter of weeks. Walking into the future with your eyes closed knowing full well you could fall off a cliff is a dangerous way to live, especially when you could take steps to minimize the dangers and insure your quality of life if something does happen.

    The End of the World as We Know It | Rob Kirby
    Reluctant Preppers



    Published on Sep 9, 2016
    Sept 09 2016

    Proprietary analyst Rob Kirby returns to Reluctant Preppers to sound the alarm that unprecedented global events including breaking of ranks by world leaders combined with alignment between analysts indicate the high risk of a major economic crisis in the coming months. Listen in as Kirby explains why things may be disrupted even sooner, and what we must do now!

    IN THIS INTERVIEW:
    =================

    We’re Living in A Dystopic World
    Major notable analysts a gathering flock warning of a foreboding collapse this fall.

    China G20 meeting events unprecedented in US history:

    Obama snubbed by Chinese on arrival, disdain for American leadership.

    Philippine president cussing out Obama,

    Foreign leaders are boldly displaying contempt of the US for mis-managing the world’s financial system, unsupportable lies, cooked data, corruption, overt denial of real economic plight (lowest ever labor participation rate, negative interest rates,

    Real change is occurring, events are foreshadowing a major reset is at our door.

    Shadowstats.com John William: US real unemployment rate = 24 percent !

    Official inflation data falsely claims low inflation, but common sense “burrito index” reveals the reality of inflation and loss of purchasing power for: food, health care, tuitions, rent, car.

    US Leaders persisting in complete disconnect with reality, data manipulated & people are getting sick of this. Even foreign leaders know they’ll be left with a huge painful disaster.

    Donald Trump - walking into a collapsing system - why would anyone in their right mind want to take the helm of a sinking ship?

    Can Trump really pull off a turnaround given how far off the rails we are right now?

    Will the powers that be torpedo a Trump presidency, economy, and America?

    Physical gold supply shortages for wholesale (large scale, immediate delivery) markets? Gold can move rapidly to $10,000 an ounce!

    We will soon see whether the American people still command the courage to stand up for right and reject corruption and abuses by the elite.

    Be Sure You'll Have Light When the Power is Out | Galen Lehman
    Reluctant Preppers



    Published on Sep 20, 2016
    Storms or other disasters can plunge your family into darkness, piling on added stress, impairing visibility, & interfering with your ability to keep your family safe, fed, comfortable and calm through an already hard time. Galen Lehman, CEO and second generation of the founding family of Lehman's, joins Reluctant Preppers to lay out proven and practical options for electric-free solutions to light your home through any crisis!


    IN THIS INTERVIEW:
    ==================

    Focus on Proven technology!

    Able to run without great expense & not dependent on complex technology

    Electric-free, also not dependent on batteries
    Hand crank flashlight - portable, reliable, can have radio built-in

    Solar - can be a large investment + light at night requires recharging batteries

    Kerosene lanterns
    Kerosene Fuel:
    Kerosene storage: opaque container, no light
    Nearly full, little trapped air
    Kerosene available at gas stations for lowest price
    Can buy packaged in sealed container to insure high set fuel quality ($20/g, $50/5gal,

    Safety:
    Kerosene flashpoint is very high, much safer than gasoline.
    Monitor latnerns, especially during first 20 minutes, don’t leave unattended wth kids & pets
    Source of fresh air (crack a window open) or

    Operation:
    Wick must be clean
    Adjust light level by turning knob to raise
    Cleaning soot from chimney: simply wipe with rag on a fork, can use windex if needed
    As lamp warms up, fuel runs freer, lamp gets brights, flame rises faster, so set at 1/2 full brightness, or lamp will run too high, flame reach through mantle which degrades brightness of mantle. Can burn a blackened mantle clean buy lowering flame.
    Burn about 1 qt/night of fun

    Types of kerosene lanterns:
    Wick lanterns: only have a wick, no mantle.
    Simplest but generate less light. (about 6 candles power)
    Enough light for general moving bout & comfort, not for reading
    Wicks can last over a month
    Look for solid brass burner construction
    Flame height adjusted by truing wick up & down
    Aladdin Lantern: Have a mantle above the wick
    Mantle incandesces with a brilliant white light like an electric light
    Room-filling white light you can read by
    Mantle is fragile - handle with care
    Keep spare mantles on hand (2-3 per month) or one mantle can last up to a year wth experience
    Keep extra chimney, 4-5 mantles, extra wick, 5 gal fuel

    Light so necessary for safety, cooking, and other life activities.
    Remember light is a great source of comfort to the entire family in an emergency.

    After the Collapse: Gangs of SHTF (Part 1)
    Canadian Prepper



    Published on Sep 25, 2016
    This is part one of an in depth exploration of how gangs will function in the absence of rule of law. In this first part I discuss theories about how and why gangs emerge.

    In the next part of this series I will discuss the general categories of gangs that will emerge in an SHTF situation and some challenges they and their prey will face.

    In part 3 we will look at how gang activity will unfold in American cities.

    In part 4 we will explore the psychology of gang members.

    Getting Your Family to Pull Together On Preparedness | Joel Salatin
    Reluctant Preppers



    Published on Sep 25, 2016
    "Help! Prepping is pulling my family apart!"
    ... In your quest to achieve more self-reliance, are your family members not all rowing the boat in the same direction? Do you wish you were all working together willingly as a team? Joel Salatin, author, co-founder of Polyface farms and popular speaker on permaculture and sustainable food raising, returns to Reluctant Preppers to offer tested tips on how to reclaim family peace while building independence: not only from the system, but most importantly within each member of your family!

    IN THIS INTERVIEW:
    =================
    Starters vs. Finishers: do you have a lot of unfinished project around - just looks like clutter to your spouse?

    Know your mission - what projects are the most important?

    Kids are naturally drawn to want to do what Mom and Dad are passionate about.

    GAME-IFY!
    Make chores into games, competitive.

    INCENTIVIZE COMPLETION!
    Make Task-Oriented tasks, not time oriented tasks! Timed tasks have no incentive to be efficient, productive, or creative.

    BREAK IT DOWN!
    Make list of bite-sized pieces of a project. Completion points, quick wins. Celebrate steps completed. Even agreements reached in planning outcomes of big projects.

    EXPECT A LOT FROM KIDS!
    In all ages and in all cultures, kids get chores: Stop depriving children of meaningful interactions with the adult world. Kids need chores to learn responsibility. Trap & feed critter to chickens in winter… Children are an asset to the household!

    PREVENT FAILURE TO LAUNCH!
    Exercise the muscles of responsibility, so that kids will be confident and prepared to enter the adult world of work and not perpetual adolescents dependent on you, on society, or government!

    CHILD ENTREPRENEURSHIP!
    Children of 6-16+ are capable of remarkable autonomous childhood endeavors, with very limited adult oversight. Resist the urge to rescue, nag, or take over. Let the kid take the spotlight, give credit where it’s due: Myriad benefits come from being in business for yourself.

    AVOIDING ALLOWANCES
    Basic housework is just for being part of the household. Require things to be done, and allow autonomous arena for kids to earn for themselves.

    LET PREPAREDNESS PROJECTS BECOME BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES FOR A CHILD!
    Chickens, rabbits, garden patch produce sellable to parents & others, design things for the home, go off-grid technical project (geek research, best options, alternatives, rationale..),

    WHAT TO DO IF & WHEN KIDS MESS UP? MAKE MORE DEPOSITS THAN WITHDRAWALS!
    Bent over nails, crooked cut boards, drought stricken garden.. GET OVER IT: Your child is not you and has different gifts.

    ALLOW YOUR KIDS INTO YOUR WORLD!

    Will you be told when the button is pushed? Is the public privy to the real military technology? When is it time to start panic buying? Does anyone benefit from WW3? Is M.A.D a real thing? Is a 3rd world war winnable? Is it survivable? I discuss this and other aspects in this video.

    Prepare For The Greater Depression and What Will Follow

    Sep 9

    Posted by sierra2one

    By: Tom Chatham

    The current declining state of the economy is just the first leg in a long journey to the bottom of the pit of misery we will all know in the coming years. The cycle of business has been turned on its head as bankers rush to save themselves and their ill gotten loot. Never in the course of human history has so much been stolen from so many by so few. All of the human labor that has been converted into wealth has been diverted to the ruling elite and now that they have gotten all that they can get they will pull out of the system and let everything else crash. It is a slow process as they move their wealth around to insure most of it survives but when they reach that point the lowly masses will see the next leg of the greater depression unfold.

    The withdrawal of this wealth from the markets will insure the system crumbles and what little that is left will be fought over by the masses as they scramble for dwindling resources. The life work of many people will be reduced to a few scraps of worthless paper in the end. After these people realize they have been robbed they will look for the person to blame but the machinations of the elite will insure this anger is redirected to other priorities. When the masses are reduced to poverty and misery they will then be subjected to war. This is the slight of hand that will keep the bankers safe for the time being. Hopefully by the time the war is over the masses will be so glad, they will have forgotten how it all began.

    As the wealth is pulled out of the financial system the distribution system will begin to crumble from lack of credit to function in the just in time delivery system we now employ. This breakdown will seem like a slow motion train wreck as things slowly get worse until they simply stop one day. Truckers are now in survival mode as loads are drying up nationwide. Hundreds of locomotives are now parked on rail sidings because there is no freight to move. Major retailers are closing hundreds of stores and laying off workers because consumers no longer have the credit they need to maintain their former lifestyles.

    Hanjin, one of the largest freight carriers in the world is now in bankruptcy and the 500,000 containers filled with goods still on their ships are now in limbo. Some are now using the word chaos to describe what is happening as customers and manufacturers rush to find new carriers and get their containers of goods back. This is just the first crack in the global distribution system that we are seeing and more cracks will appear in the future as shippers succumb to lower shipping rates and fewer goods to haul. Most of the goods and about 50% of the food eaten in the U.S. is imported. As these goods stop flowing into the country the population will see their standard of living get worse.

    This loss of goods will trigger internal strife and fighting among the population as they seek to maintain their living standards. Unlike our ancestors who knew how to live in hard times, the snowflake generation will be unable to adjust to the desperate times. This combined with the over medication of our population will make the world a very dangerous place. Society will gyrate from withdrawal and fear to fits of rage on a regular basis and this will do little to help the average person make things better as we try to work through our problems as a nation.

    Unlike previous hard times when people worked together and made the tough decisions needed to recover, the future will be very different. It will be a time of chaos, deceit, violence and lack of sympathy toward others. Families will be torn apart and social groups will fight one another. The war that comes may very well be on our own shores this time and Americans will be the cannon fodder for the global cover-up of theft and mismanagement of resources.

    The coming days will truly try mens souls as we each work to live day to day and survive the turmoil that follows. Each person will need to understand the changes that are to come and determine what infrastructure they will need to get by for the several years that anarchy will rule. They need to know what they will need to do now so they will have the resources available when they need them. When the social safety nets collapse they may not have anyone to turn to for their needs. The future may seem bleak but the human spirit is more than able to compensate and see us through if we allow it and we all rise to our potential.

    In times like this it is all too easy to allow a country to slip into a dictatorship in the hopes that some strong man will fix our woes but that never happens in the real world. The fundamental loss of freedoms will lead to more misery and poverty as the few remaining resources are diverted to the ruling class and the excess goods are used as a weapon to control the masses. Those that do not go along to get along will find themselves hunted as enemies of the state and see neighbors turn into informants to stay in the good graces of the state.

    The only recourse in times like this are to become invisible and stay out of the way of the state while you work behind the scenes to undermine the states power and control through covert methods. Being off the beaten path will be the best method of survival that will allow you the most freedom to utilize natural resources and live a decent life away from the machinations of those that would enslave you for their own purposes. Hard times are coming and ignoring this will not change the future it will just make your life that much harder. Times change but how well you live through them is entirely up to you.

    Do You Have A Backup Plan?

    Sep 25

    Posted by sierra2one

    By: Tom Chatham

    Most people that take future disruptions to their lives as a given usually go to the next step and have a backup plan to deal with those disruptions. Some people set aside extra money to pay for unexpected breakdowns or appliance repair. Some set aside money to pay rent and utilities in the event of job loss or sickness. Some set aside supplies in the event of natural or man made disasters that cut off their normal supply systems. Some even prepare for world altering disasters that may only happen once in a millennium.

    In any case people are taking responsibility for their own well being and doing what they think is reasonable diligence given the uncertain world we live in. Do you have a backup plan to deal with any disruptions in your normal daily life? If you do not, then why not? Now is a good time to sit down and contemplate some of the things that could alter your life but could be substantially minimized if you only take some preventive actions now.

    Disasters that can prevent you from going about your daily routine for an extended period of time can be life altering. Especially if these disruptions prevent you from acquiring the basic necessities of life you have come to depend on. The inability to satisfy your needs can be depressing and even life threatening at some point. The following is just one of many ways you can reduce possible problems to mere inconveniences with just a little though and preparation. This list only lists food and energy in the solutions but can be expanded to include anything you might deem necessary. Just think of it as a starting point.

    Plan A-
    Normal operations in your daily life that encompass small manageable problems that everybody faces from time to time.
    Mitigation options: Maintain 30 days worth of money to deal with unexpected financial problems.

    Plan B-
    Temporary disruptions that disrupt your daily routine and can prevent you from doing certain tasks that need to be done. The disruption will limit your access to food, water and energy resources for up to two weeks. It can be a power outage, cyber attack, natural disaster or man made disaster.
    Mitigation options: Generator with 20 gallons of fuel storage, battery pack with power inverter to reduce generator use, canned foods, water storage, cash on hand.

    Plan C-
    Long term disruptions that alter your daily routine and can prevent you from doing certain tasks. This disruption will eliminate all availability of food and energy resources for the duration of the emergency. The situation is much like a temporary disruption except it can last much longer putting the health and welfare of the population in serious risk.
    Mitigation options: generator with at least 50 gallons of fuel, batteries with power inverter, solar and wind generation as backup, larger food stores or garden production, water filtration and storage, alternative fuel source ie: wood gas or biogas system, wood stove with wood supply.

    Plan D-
    This could be a long term disruption that falls outside of normal circumstances. It could be something like an EMP or CME that takes down the technological infrastructure. It can also encompass your response to a long term disaster that goes beyond the limits of your technological preparations in earlier plans.
    Mitigation options: Oil lamps and lamp fuel, hand operated water pumps for wells, water filters, gas stove with bio gas fuel or wood stove with wood supply, absorption refrigeration with bio gas system.

    This is merely an example of how you can break down potential problems and devise solutions to the type of situation. It also allows you to jump ahead to the proper plan given the known problem allowing you to react in a timely fashion. The faster you can respond to the problem the better you will be able to limit the negative effects on you.

    In many disasters it is all too familiar to see people running around in a daze not knowing what to do. It is these people that present the greatest threat to keeping society stable when things seem to fall apart quickly. The more that you can reduce disasters to mere inconveniences the better off you and your community will be. Having a plan and resources standing by when that happens is instrumental to maintaining order and allowing some type of recovery to begin.

    Granted, living in a rural area on a few acres of land will give you many options that an apartment dweller will not have so it is important to do a realistic appraisal of your situation and determine the best course of action in the event of a disaster. Your plan needs to be tailored to you and no one else. This is why you must give considerable thought to it and not just try to copy the plan of others. While others may have very good ideas to incorporate into your plan your plan must work for you when the time comes.

    A plan does not have to be complicated or expensive, it just needs to work. When it comes to disasters the greatest asset you have is your own mind. Expanding your knowledge base and just taking the time to think through different situations will greatly increase your response to situations that might send your neighbors over the edge. When disaster strikes, how you are able to respond will determine how well you get through it so give yourself every opportunity to stay safe and healthy.

    Survival Is Up To You When The Worst Happens

    Oct 9

    Posted by sierra2one

    By: Tom Chatham

    As Russia prepares its people and military for possible nuclear war with the U.S. the American propaganda organs are busy selling the notion that everything is just fine. While Russia has been building fallout shelters for its people the U.S. government has been building FEMA camps for theirs. It just goes to show the prevailing mentality in each of these nations.

    The corrupt policies and inept leadership in the U.S. has done everything to create this situation. Unfortunately when the bombs begin to fall it will not be the leadership that pays the price for their failed ideology but the average American citizen. Long before the first bombs arrive the leadership will be whisked away to the safety of underground shelters while the citizens are told to stay calm.

    The great terror for the people will not be the sudden blinding flash that vaporizes whole cities but the majority that will survive the bombs only to have to deal with the fallout that follows. Many people think that a nuclear war will mean their instant death but that will only happen for the few at ground zero. What will follow for the rest will be a slow death as radiation slowly destroys them from the inside out due to lack of proper shelters to protect them.

    The lucky few that survive this horror will then have to deal with the next problem of finding clean water and food. Anyone that has made it this far has a good chance of survival if they are prepared. Many will say why bother, I would not want to live in a world like this. The thing is, if you do not prepare to survive you will eventually die but it will be slower and increasingly traumatic along the way. You will have to watch your family die a slow death as they dehydrate and starve.

    Being located away from military bases and large cities and being upwind of them will greatly increase your chances of survival. At the same time, being underground to some extent will also be helpful. To be effective against fallout a shelter does not have to be a large concrete bunker with all of the amenities. A simple hole in the ground with sufficient overhead cover and some type of air filtration system will get you through the first few weeks that are the most dangerous. This is realistic and possible by the average person with the proper knowledge.

    The book Nuclear War Survival Skills by Cresson Kearny provides a wealth of usable knowledge to help the average person survive the unthinkable. This book can be downloaded online for free so there are no excuses for anyone not to have this valuable information especially in times such as these.

    A temporary shelter to protect you from fallout can be as simple as a 3’x6’x12’ hole in the ground lined with plastic and covered with logs and a few feet of dirt. The entrance would need a sealed door of some type and an air pump to remove stale air and moisture. Basic supplies would include food, water, lighting, bedding, medical supplies, a radiation meter and sanitation system. Nuclear War Survival Skills shows you how to supply these items with the least amount of cost. This book provides you with the means to survive many other disasters as well with the same supplies.

    We all hope for the best possible outcome in world events but when everything goes terribly wrong we owe it to ourselves and our families to have the means to take care of them even when the worst happens. Every family that can care for itself after an event will provide that much more stability to society in the days following that are crucial to recovery. Even in the worst case scenario there will be survivors. How well you plan will determine if you are one of the few.

    It is unfortunate that the vast majority will simply not prepare and wait for FEMA to come to their rescue but that is a foolish action. FEMA’s primary mission is for continuity of government so when the worst happens there will be no serious help coming for the regular people. To aid in your own planning you should have a copy of Nuclear War Survival Skills which you can find with a web search. Here is one site that offers a free download. http://nuclearwarsurvivalskills.com/
