    Mr. Ruppert, you are a beacon of hope & truth shining on this dark pit of deceit & evil formerly known as the US Government.

    saying we've used half the oil in the earth is kind of ignorant. How does he know what's left in the ground? new oil fields are being found weekly, now. Canadian
    tar-sands. the middle east is floating on a sea of the stuff. then there's the "reserves" here in the US & Alaska that we refuse to pump out of the ground.
    'just sayin'

    Funny peak oil is scam, and the word is there is more below than we could ever use in many, many, many, generation's What better way to drive fear, and the nuclear industry than by this vehicle of P.O. 

  • MegaHouseGuy

    Peak oil means you are now using more than what you are discovering to replace what you've just used…. I guess you can understand that huh?! The well producing 1-2 pints a day is irrelevant there are thousands and thousands of wells that could produce small amounts of oil like the one you mention. It's the all mighty dollar that says that such wells get shut in. They cost more to produce the small amount then they are worth so the well is shut in. Your well is likely freeflowing so who cares.

    this was BEFORE the 2008 collapse……….too many people, too much demand/not enough left, chaos is coming…..get prepared people

    Interesting, another youtube user making hasty generalizations, without sound propositions, to ensure a probable cause for conspiracy. 


    We think only within a restricted frame. Yes, peak oil is here already and yes if nothing replaces what oil does for us we will have big problems sooner than later. Nikola Tesla found unlimited sources of free energy. The answer to this energy shortage is likely to come from the Schumann cavity. Not used now as JP Morgan said to Tesla "If I cannot put a counter on this, I am not interested"…
