Michael Ruppert
Peak Oil: The Future of Food Security, Fuel and the Economy
Mike Ruppert, Editor and Publisher of www.fromthewilderness.com and author of Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil spoke at SolFest at the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, California in August 2005 where this interview occurred. Ruppert, a former Los Angeles narcotics police officer, has been a teller of truth as he sees it for many many years. He was shot at, his life was threatened and when he reported it to LAPD Chief Darly Gates, Gates responded (through an aide) that he was too busy to see Ruppert, and that he'd see him in a week to 10 days if he (Ruppert) was still alive. At that Ruppert resigned from the LAPD. He has retained, and possibly strengthened his committment to telling the truth.
He was one of the first independent investigators to look into what really caused the tragic events of 9/11/2001 and has continued to be a leader in the movement to uncover the 9/11 cover-up. From the beginning of this investigation and discussion he has claimed that the peaking of oil and natural gas and diminishing natural resources were central in why some people in high places in the US plan and carry out such terrorizing actions in order to convince people that the US needs to attack, for instance, Afghanistan and Iraq, in order to control what oil there remains. This is not the only reason, but one of the main ones.
In this recent interview he shares that, in his opinion, the issues of peak oil (the end of cheap oil and therefore the end of the industrial world as we know it) and gas and climate change now overshadow any other issues facing us because the survival of humans and other life on earth are at stake. Our very survival is the issue due to the natural and political threats facing us. He explains what he sees happening geopolitically in the world in terms of China, Venezuela, Iran, etc.. It is Ruppert's opinion that the US economy will collapse by December 2005 (and this was before the hurricane tragedy that just happened in Louisiana and Mississippi). As usual, Mike Ruppert, has much of interest and importance to say.
CORRECTION: I want to publicly apologize to Mike Ruppert and let my audience know that it was totally my error when I stated previously in this write-up that Ruppert was fired from the Los Angeles Police Department. The truth is that he RESIGNED from the LAPD while was he earning the highest rating reports possible as well as having been certified for promotion of Detective. He had no pending disciplinary actions of any kind and perfect LAPD record. The mistake has now been corrected in the write-up.
