Energy crisis

by Chris Martenson

An energy crisis is roiling across the UK and Europe on the cusp of winter, and the rest of the world is on the horizon. It’s already being felt in the UK, Europe, China, Russia, and the U.S.

In the UK, the media is chalking up the energy crisis to consumer panic buying and truck driver shortages, but this blames everyday citizens for what is actually a much deeper structural problem and bungling executed by government policies. A more accurate explanation acknowledges the origins of the current energy crisis in a predictable outcome of the failure to invest in the production of oil and supply stability during the COVID-19 mismanagement and shutdowns.

While the governing elite will have you believe the crisis is as ‘transitory’ as the inflation they themselves create through central bankers’ monetary policies, it would be foolish to take them at their word. A major economic shock is guaranteed at this point in the story—one that will disproportionately impact the middle and lower classes.

  1. Regarding the current ‘fuel crisis’ in Britain, which has resulted in frantic panic-buying of petrol, causing some petrol stations to be completely empty. This entire shortage, however, is a smokescreen, a classic Problem-Reaction-Solution.

    Petrol, when stored in a sealed container at 20°c/68°F, can survive for up to six months, or six to twelve months for diesel, so less fuel was used over the course of the last year of lockdowns:

    “Energy consumption in the first quarter of 2021 was low as COVID-19 restrictions continued to reduce demand.”

    “Total demand for petroleum products fell by a quarter in Quarter 1 2021, compared to Quarter 1 2020, as the UK entered a third national lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. In response to reduced demand and because of refinery maintenance production fell 29 per cent resulting in a quarterly record low.”

    This was as low as half during the beginning of lockdown according to supply and demand trends:

    “The first week of lockdown saw a decrease of around half the sales prior to lockdown across Great Britain. London had the largest decrease (55 per cent) whilst North East had the lowest decrease (51 per cent).”

    Apparently less oil was also produced, as felt in the byproduct of foam used in furniture production. Overall this drop in energy consumption has led to a surplus which needs to be bought and used up before the fuel expires. Thus the ‘crisis’ is one created by the media in order to stimulate an artificial demand. So why would they pretend that there is a fuel shortage?

    This fits with the Energy Crisis and Fossil Fuel/Global Warming green narrative of the UN’s Agenda 2030. With fuel artificially cut, petrol prices increase greatly and transport slows down to a crawl, forcing people into another lockdown with restriction of movement. In addition it allows for the transition to ‘Green’ fuel resources (shaping the market where it can be sold at cheaper prices compared with the fossil fuel scarcity) for the introduction of electrical cars as the ‘solution’ of the ‘fuel crisis’, that is to say — centrally managed energy which can become controlled by smart meters and social credit systems with their environmental impact measured and restricted. So far there are not yet any projected statistics for the increase of imported fuel in this quarter, but it will undoubtedly require large scale imports of thousands of tonnes across thousands of miles to the thinly stretched HGV vehicles across the country (while we are simultaneously told about how our actions are destroying the planet).

    Thus it is not the ‘fuel crisis’ which should worry us, but the artificial creation of one to create a reaction of social restructuring towards the goals of Agenda 2030 — which of course has thus far been the general course of the so-called ‘pandemic’.
