Message from Ross Flint, Tasmania: Good morning Ben,

Today’s JPIC mailing was very helpful for me - there is always fresh and educational information out there to glean from. I find graphs, diagrams to help my understanding. “A picture is with a thousand words …"

And yet they press on with extraction and exploration.

From today’s Guardian:

Oil companies | Top scientists agree that the planet will get even hotter unless fossil fuels are phased out, but leading energy companies are intent on pushing the world in the opposite direction – expanding fossil fuel production and insisting that there is no alternative.

No alternative = Extinction - I can’t get my mind to comprehend their mentality … the Companies are not simply a “system" or a “machine" - they are comprised of human beings - presumably intelligent human beings … with families …
Another presentation that provided fresh insights came from Nate Hagens (9 min) 14th July
Just Stop Oil !? Part 1 - Gasoline | Frankly #37
In this must watch Frankly, Nate illustrates how a reduction in the demand for gasoline will not - as commonly believed - result in a 1:1 reduction in the demand for oil. This is contrary to a widespread perception, which much growth in the Electric Vehicle industry has been based on, about the correlation between a decline in gasoline usage resulting in an overall decline in oil production and CO2 emissions. While a significant portion of oil refining results in gasoline, we need to be aware of modern civilization's deep dependencies on the remaining products that all come from the same barrel of oil. Only then can we understand and plan for feasible pathways to reducing oil production and consumption within the confines of a growth-dependent complex adaptive system. How can movements such as Just Stop Oil better reflect the reality of the current oil production system and our economy?
