OILCRASH.COM ON YOUTUBE

 

On March 3 2008 I delivered 122 DVDs containing 16 YouTube clips and a 65 minute lecture by the late Dr Peter Lloyd called ‘Peak Oil Meets Climate Change’.

This DVD records crucial information about the key issues of our times and was delivered to all MPs, so that they cannot pretend at some later stage that they had no warning of what is on its way or lacked the necessary information to deal with it.

For the leaders of an industrial society to ensure that society enters the end of the age of oil (which peak oil portends) with no workable plan, thereby ensuring mass business failure, mass unemployment and potentially mass starvation, amounts to criminal negligence. For the leaders of a so-called democracy to continually mislead the general public about the devastating effects of climate change, and to continue to promote policies that make climate change worse is a crime against humanity. That is exactly what our political leaders have consistently done – ignored the warnings of numerous experts and put NZ on a path towards utter chaos.

Below is the contents of the DVD, please follow the links to YouTube, to see what every politician has had the opportunity to watch. They would even be getting paid to watch it!

I ended up with 13 letters and 2 emails confirming receipt of the DVDs I delivered to parliament.
Most just acknowledged that the DVD had been handed on to the minister, and I am sure if I had delivered 122 bags of dog shit, I would have had similar responses.

Some noteworthy replies are from:

Doug Woolerton, who gave the most honest reply; it is such a shame the leader of New Zealand First, Winston Peters, has his head so far up his own ego that he wouldn’t recognise an emergency if it hit him in the face, as witnessed by his inability to answer a simple question during the last NZ elections on peak oil. When he suggested I hold a meeting in the local telephone booth, for those that were interested in my question.

Winnie Laban, who seems to think nothing is her responsibility, which leaves the question – What the fuck is she doing in parliament? She offered to find some finical help for me in 2005 to get this information into schools… another line of bullshit?

Dr Wayne Mapp, of whom we wonder whether he received his doctorate at the same university as Doctor Goebbels, as Hitler would surely be proud of him, and his ‘propaganda’.

And Jim Anderton – one of the most untrustworthy, self-centred members we are unlucky enough to have in our government. Not only did he manipulate Helen Clark into a sham of a wedding, he has been driven by his own self-admiration, and if he was my farther I think I would have killed myself by now as well… another Goebbels? (I’ve been giving this clown peak oil information for over 7 years)

As for the Green Party – Yeah Right! What a sick joke on us all.

Helen Clark «We are past peak oil production»
[1:50]

On 18-4-2006 Helen Clark the Prime Minister of New Zealand said in answer to a question regarding fuel prices being so high «I’m sure (the rise in oil prices) is causing concern in every country. Because everyone is on the receiving end of the same phenomenon. Which is oil prices very high, because WE’RE PROBABLY NOT TOO FAR SHORT OF PEAK PRODUCTION, IF NOT ALREADY THERE, and that concentrates the mind… [snip…]» yet her fool Minister of Energy David Parker came out a week later saying the world wouldn’t peak until 2030 – 37, we truly have idiots for leaders in New Zealand, and that goes for National as well, another bunch of con artists who think the Kiwi Saver is a good idea, while in the light of Helen’s peak oil statement we (those who can work it out) know there will not be an economy worth 2 cents soon enough.
