Record High Oil Prices Shock Nation

Even though we are in a recession, record high oil prices are hitting us in the pocketbook like never before. The price for crude shot above $102/barrel even though fuel consumption is down. It is likely that we will see $4/gal gas soon. Analysts forecast that by this spring we will be paying over four dollars for each gallon of gasoline and the price may hit five by 2009.

Economists see recession

Well, as our economy plunges ever downward we see that it is unstoppable. Economists see recession this year and forecast that the recovery will be weak; actually I forecast a one two punch of recession and inflation known as stagflation will hit us this year. The high price of oil and grain will affect food and fuel.

The student loan crunch

The same banks that stopped loaning money to buy houses are now cutting back on cars, and guess what - no loans for students. It is that we are out of money and we see a student loan crunch as one more indication of a faltering economy. Well, you have not long to wait because soon you will see a lot of banks fail.

Future Fuels

People point to the growing use of ethanol derived from corn as an example of what is to come. Other see biodiesel from soy as the answer. Yet, this has driven up the price of food and we still depend on Saudi Arabia for oil.

Most cars burn gasoline not ethanol, the flexfuel initiative has been a disaster. We need a real solution to our transportation problem. It appears that future fuels are not the answer we once thought they would be.

Another alternative we see is using electricity. The United States has a 500 year supply of coal. Still, the amount of CO2 created to power this fleet of electric cars would be staggering. Out coal supply would soon be burnt up.

The solution is to move to wind power and solar to replace fossil fuels. To create a post carbon future without greenhouse gas, otherwise God's green earth will be turned into a polluted wasteland.

economy in trouble

Well, our economy is slowing down faster than expected, it was another down day for the DOW. The price of oil near a record high means less money in the pockets of consumers. Economic slowdown is the forecast for this summer. The next few weeks will show us.

House of the Future

In 1957, over fifty years ago, Walt Disney built the house of the future in Disneyland. It was all made of plastic. The house had inside a functional microwave and a wall size flat screen TV. The house of the future would soon be torn down because it looked to "dated".

Back then the future was seen as fun, but now we see the future in a very distinct way. It is our plastic paradise that has polluted our envioronment with the waste of petroleum products. The future looks grim indeed. I wonder, will there be birds in the future?

Veal is a Cruel Meal

Those sad little creatures. They moo for their mothers that they will never see. Kept in confined crates they cry out. Each calf isolated in a wooden crate so small they cannot even turn around.

Decline in the dollar

Oracle of Omaha Warren Buffet says that the dollar should continue to decline for the next 5 - 10 years. This is important because foreign banks are reluctant to lend money to americans. They are afraid that our money will be worthless 20 years out. This makes things more difficult for us. The decline in the US dollar hurts us. Our current trade deficit with China is hurting the US economy.

Real Estate - what is the forecast?

Well, it is the opposite of sunny; there is a gale force wind with a massive thunderstorm. Banks will fail, prices will fall. Actually, things are good now compared to the near future. Get ready for a wild ride as the economy implodes.

Future of Real Estate is very grim indeed as we see now more than ever signs of a coming economic collapse the the perfect storm caused by a declining dollar and investors pulling money out of US banks creates chaos for the markets.

Expect to see property prices plummet and then slowly go up, but first you could see prices crash when banks attempt to unload the huge number of forclosed properties they have on the book... It's scary...

Dr. Ron Mallette's new book

Dr. Ron Mallette has a new book about time travel. He is building a time machine using a rotating laser. This device should allow communication across time. The device is different from inventor Steven Gibbs Hyper Dimensional Resonator which uses an electromagnet and technology similar to that of the Philadephia Experiment.

What will happen to the sea?

Well, what we see is that much pollution is pumped into the vast oceans. At one time it seemed that the sea was so big that it could never be destroyed. Its very vastness diluted the contamination to a tolerable lever. Still, with the passage of time we see a very grim future for the ocean. It is sad to see that we are not doing more to control our giant industry. We cannot allow our planet to be destroyed by greedy people who want to make profit. Unless we act now, our oceans will die in the future, and so will we.

Future Price of Gasoline

Last week I paid $3.39/gallon for gasoline. It was so expensive that I felt like I was pumping in liquid gold. Yes, that golden fluid is most precious. Still, few vehicles are E85. Today I saw that E85 is only $2.79/gallon, that is much better than paying over $3/gal for gas.

My question is:
What is the future price of gasoline?

Future of Sport

People wonder what will happen in the days ahead. What is the future of sport? Well, we can see that violent sports are the hallmark of an empire in decline. Think of ancient Rome and the arena. The Christians fed to lions. The people wanted blood.

It is sad to say that we are not all that different. Our world is much like that one. We the modern Romans love sports and we will soon end, much like rome did.

Communications in the Future.

Some wonder what we will use in the days to come. Will it make what we have today look as primitive as smoke signals? Future Communication is an important topic. The massive infrastructure made of wires is dumped for a wireless future.

We see nomore spider web as post and poles are taken down. Therse were to expensive to maintain. The future of communications is satellites, not wires.

ghost malls

I told you that this was going to happen. The economy is going down and many malls are empty of customers. Now many stores are closing. I have seen the ghost town, make way for the ghost mall.

This relic of a bygone age will remind us that nothing lasts forever. The mall cost too much money and cannot compete with online retailers. Look forthe guv to tax online sales soon.

M$ buy Yahoo?

Will Microsoft buy Yahoo? Well, we see a strong possibility that number three and number two search engines could merge to become number one. This would totally change the landscape of the future.
