First, we need to acknowledge what Mike establishes in the first pages: “…oil price spikes in June and July of 2008 broke the backs of over-extended consumers who could no longer meet their (sub-prime) mortgage payments and that this-and this alone-triggered the great economic crash which began in September and October. Energy and money are inextricably connected in very profound ways….” Furthermore he notes, “The current economic implosion will and can only result in the greatest-and longest lasting-economic depression in human history-a new Dark Age.”
We have been lied to about the stock market, AIG, Citigroup, hedge funds, mortgages, Ponzi-schemes, 401(k)s, the invasion of Iraq… even steroids in baseball. Why accept everything we have been told about energy? Our energy “information” comes from the same corporate entities that have misled us about everything else. A Presidential Energy Policy exposes the lies told about energy to protect a collapsing monetary system which now threatens all of industrial civilization. It also provides real, positive and immediate steps that can be taken at the individual, local, federal and global levels that can avert a potential extinction event for our species.
A Presidential Energy Policy says what an American president cannot, that energy and money (the economy) are Siamese twins. Energy is depleting faster than it can be replaced and there is no combination of alternative energies that can or will ever sustain an edifice of human civilization built by oil. If energy gets sick, money must be treated simultaneously and vice versa often in ways that threaten the other. Separating the twins in a way that saves and preserves life cannot take place without killing one or both under the present monetary regime. Of the two, energy is more important to human life. Energy can do work. Energy grows food and pumps water. Energy moves goods and services. Energy sustains life. Money is useless without energy.
A world-recognized expert who saw today’s crisis coming and started warning in amazingly precise detail in 2000 now gives us the biggest exposé of all time. Refined in chilling detail in “Prezpol”, the “map” Ruppert has been making for thirty years has already saved thousands of families from the current economic meltdown.
