The Peak of The Oil Lies - 8

Related: Peak Oil & Peak Oil Lies
The peak of something can be graphed by using a bell curve pattern.

A pattern which details an upward slope, then a curved roof when reaching the apex, then a downward slope which descends back down toward the beginning levels.

In the case of lies about the nature of oil, of fossil fuels, we can conceive that pattern as the propaganda paralleling the peak of oil itself, meaning the peak of the volume of extracting the polluting poison from the graveyards, from the reservoirs under ground.

The graph to the lower-right shows another typical bell curve with an upward slope, reaching a peak, and then tracking back downward.

That graph is explained by the Dredd Blog post The Peak of Sanity-3 as the time when
The Peak of Sanity - Criminal Epoch
the truth of the coming fossil fuel pollution catastrophe became known to the powers that be.

But they choose to begin to lie to the public about it, to stimulate denial through propaganda, thus bringing in A Criminal Epoch of time where the public became increasingly endangered by pollution and propaganda about climate change (The Exceptional American Denial).

A similar pattern has taken place in the propaganda of MOMCOM regarding the mythical war on terror.

In recent days, the propaganda meisters got sweat on their brow when people began to see through the BS, so they have now pulled out the old cold war propaganda to try to engineer some new cultural amygdala circuits to replace the old, tired, and almost died-out fears of the cold war.

It was like throw out the picture of people putting plastic and duct tape over their windows, and replace it with pictures of kids hiding under their school desks in nuclear-war drills.

The 1% are getting desperate it would seem.

But back to the oil propaganda that is also not working as well in some places as it is in others:
Federal energy authorities have slashed by 96% the estimated amount of recoverable oil buried in California's vast Monterey Shale deposits, deflating its potential as a national "black gold mine" of petroleum.

Just 600 million barrels of oil can be extracted with existing technology, far below the 13.7 billion barrels once thought recoverable from the jumbled layers of subterranean rock spread across much of Central California, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said.
(U.S. Officials Cut Estimate). These propaganda surges typically have a predictable pattern.

They are composed of an initial surge of fear inducing propaganda fostered by the main stream media, the passing of rules, legislation, or a plunder of the treasury which that fear surge was engineered to facilitate.

Finally, there follows a return to the previous ho hum status quo after the main stream media no longer continues the BS:
A top energy watchdog said the world will need more Middle Eastern oil in the next decade, as the current U.S. boom wanes. But the International Energy Agency warned that Persian Gulf producers may still fail to fill the gap, risking higher oil prices.

In its first update to the agency’s energy investment outlook in more than a decade, the IEA—which represents some of the world’s largest consumer nations—said it sees “growth in oil demand [becoming] steadily more reliant on investment in the Middle East.”

Surging American production from tight oil—extracted from shale formations in places like Texas and North Dakota—has led the agency and other oil-market analysts to predict the U.S. could leapfrog the world’s largest oil producers, Saudi Arabia and Russia, by 2020.
(IEA Expects World to Rely More on Middle East Oil). So, after a year or so of "shale oil kills peak oil problem" bullshit we are now back to "oh, we are dependent on the Middle East" like we have been since the fateful decisions just before World War I (Viva Egypt - 2).

Meanwhile, the fact that using the fossil fuel will destroy civilization is still on the back burner festering with denial propaganda (Life In The Ferengi Home World - 3).
