Firstly, they'd have to make it through continental Europe

Secondly, continental European countries, by that point, would have done away with all delusions of niceties and the Mediterranean would be red with Arab and African blood. This would likely take the form of allied military engagement of several European countries acting in concert.

In other words, the Northern European countries, including the UK, would take part in such allied engagements because they would know that if they did not the Southern European countries would just wave the migrants through. And who could blame them under such circumstances.

Thus, the numbers reaching the UK, by that point, would be far fewer than tens of millions

These won't be migrants but an armed invasion of the Muslim world into Europe.

Stunning post.


Stunning indeed! Like a mullet!

I haven't seen any of JMG's backing off or apologizing for his demonstrated ignorance related to peak oil. Have you read anywhere him scrapping and bowing as he backs away from prior statements based on this now obvious geologic and economic ignorance?

Yes certainly better than his average over the last couple of years!

I don't think he's right the draw a comparison between the post 2010 collapse of the peak oil movement and that climate change activism and environmentalism generally will similarly stop being fashionable.

The overwhelming reason for peak oil's collapse was on the ground reality of unconventional oil and <<$100 oil prices. Climate change faces an opposite future, there's every expectation for temperatures to rise further, extremes of drought and flood to increase in impact etc. We'll have another big El Nino event one day (like 1997-1998) that will further underline the predicament.

Climate change is not facing a $35 oil event like peak oil did.

It is a good observation that the peak oil concerned folk have tended to be more likely to make significant lifestyle changes than the solely climate change concerned people.
