    Real History!
    The imagery was truly dynamic and brings home the script.
    I would hate to wade through just an audio, because I would miss so much of the substance and impact.
    Thank you Broc!

    Sidebar comment on the oil industry and the general economy:

    1. Why is the the business press so wrapped up in cheerleading for higher crude oil prices? Because it serves their masters, I suppose. For the rest of us, a reduction in the wellhead oil price should lead to a lower cost for us at the gas (petrol) station pump. And a reduction in oil prices would lower manufacturing costs, competitively leading to lower consumer prices, for the myriad of products that are now made from hydrocarbons.

    2. The myth of peak oil insinuates a general public perception that a dwindling resource should reasonably expect to result in ever-increasing prices for things produced from hydrocarbons. The use of the term ‘fossil fuel’ only embeds this perception. It has been known for a long time that oil is most probably created from an abiotic process, invoving carbon under high temperatures and pressures deep in the earth’s mantle. The liquified carbon, and its natural gas effluent, then perculates up through the layers of rocks in the earth’s crust via fissures in the rock strata. While the timescale for the formation of oil and natural gas may be very long, in human terms, the fact remains it’s a renewable resource. We’ve been duped again.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      A lot of institutions have money invested in a large number of “smaller” independent oil related companies. I think a lot of smaller companies would like to see prices hit at least $60 a barrel. Higher oil prices also mean more tax revenue for many states or countries, because the drilling would pick up.

      With oil prices near 45 to 50 for WTI, many wells can barely break even. Some make money. But the real money comes when an extra $10 or $20 a barrel occurs. I think the days of the pre-2015 $100 barrel oil are long gone.

      In fact, in light of Corbett’s recent documentary Why big Oil Conquered the World gives me the impression that we will always see the oil industry flounder in the near future. That oil prices and oil demand will stay in a lower altitude. Just my thoughts.

      Actually, this gives me an idea… I need to contact some of these radio people in the oil or investment markets to conduct an interview with Corbett.
      Money always lights up interest.

        Oil prices have been fixed so much knowing the “real” price would by like asking your average soccer mum what’s her natural hair color. If we assume these guys are positioning themselves for a post carbon era, destroying the current industry is a stepping stone in their plan.

        Another aspect of the industry is fracking, which wasn’t profitable in the traditional sense even at 100$ barrels, what with all the cheap loans and deferred expenses.

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          Fracking in the SCOOP/STACK area of Oklahoma (“generalbottlewasher”‘s stomping grounds is Oklahoma) can generally be profitable for many wells at $42 a barrel. The fracking technology is rapidly getting more efficacious. (unfortunately)

          In the Permian basin of west Texas, some fracked wells make money even if oil was $25-$30 barrel. This is where the Bush family lived for awhile. One of our group member’s Dad used to hob-nob with the Republican ilk out that way including Bush the elder. In fact, the group member and I both used to live in Big Springs (west Texas Permian area) as kids and shared many a conversation about the area.

          You are so right mkey, the oil prices are definitely rigged.
          Corbett has some past episodes about the rigged markets.
          Here are some mainstream articles listed which talk about the rigging of the oil markets…

    Is it possible to somehow buy a signed copy of the DVDs?

    For us non-tech type people, I actually learned a good bit from this. I really have no idea on what goes on to put together a video of this order. The research and writing I can relate to, as I’ve done a lot of that, but I’ve never done any video of note. Something to think about for sure. Plus, it’s always nice to hear the unsung heroes get their chance to sing a bit as well. Thanks, JimBob
