GLOBAL RESOURCES ANALYSIS
CONCLUSIONS | DON'T WAIT
DON'T WAIT Time is not on our side in transition away from a Cheap Carbon fuelled economy. We're already too late. Governments has failed in their steering responsibility the last years, by being completely obsessed by terror (minor problem), by fake economic growth (must be based on real values) and by military actions (destroyed a lot in times of PeakOil needed goodwill by other governments and nations). Math can show the economic damage of waiting. Time that passes by, deepens the PeakOil caused economic damage. Below a replay of some text from the first pages of this analysis that will tells the importance of not waiting any longer with transition: "There can be made some interesting diagrams that make the effects of start date of transition very clear. The start date is the wildcard that can maintain or destroy prosperity. There can be made a simple mathematically model between the next two variables: level of fossil energy prices, the time period and with as result the cost of transition. Also there could be made a simple mathematically model between the next two variables: start date transition, energy price with as result: possible height of transition level (is maintaining prosperity). There can be made a simple mathematically model between the next two variables: start date transition, energy price with as result two lines: economic collapse and societal collapse (societal collapse always comes later than economic collapse, the same as economic collapse comes later than the actual developments that cause them (one of our huge but short time benefits we now can use)." Waiting is contra productive. Waiting on what? The facts are clear. We're already too late. Let's start today and not some time in the future. If you're a leader: be one. It's needed now, otherwise our own future (and not only the future of our children and grandchildren) is at the line.
