SRS ROCCO: With PRECIOUS Metals, It’s ALL About the ENERGY

from Perpetual Assets:

When we dissect the fundamentals of life we have energy. Energy is the source. To have growth, you must have energy, whether a micro organism, an individual, or an economy. As energy becomes harder to extract, efficiencies fall, surpluses fall, and growth stops.

As net exporting countries become net importers of oil, growth tapers. This is the trend, Egypt and Indonesia are two examples that tipped the scales recently. This is a result of increasing consumption and decreasing production efficiency. Energy returned on invested is crucial to understand. It is costing more energy to extract the same amount of oil.

Peak oil is the notion that the world peaked in energy production. Critics of this argument can be heard citing recent oil discoveries, oil shale and natural gas. The problem lies in the cost of excreting the oil. We must spend energy to extract energy. When the sum of all the inputs becomes too great relative to the output, the jig is up.

    Quite true. It’s not a question of running out of oil but at what cost is it worth extracting it from the ground. We are without question past peak oil. That means the cheap oil is gone at it will cost more to get it. As oil production drops on a worldwide basis it will take more effort and MONEY to just try and keep up with growth and the population that needs it to survive. Which is why the West has turned to shale and fracking.
