Observing the renewable energy transition from a European perspective


This site aimes at raising the public awareness of all matters linked to geopolitics, energy and resources in general. The editor of this site believes that the world has arrived at the point predicted by The Club of Rome in 1972 and that scarcities of all sorts are now beginning to bite. Understanding the problem is the precondition of solving the problem, in as much as this is possible at all.

Added value for you by following this blog: we keep track of developments in the field, read articles and books and give pointers and short summaries, longer than a tweet but shorter than an article, so you can decide if is worth to dive into the subject in detail yourself. By reading merely a few headlines you can be sure to be kept up-to-date about major developments in the field.

About the editor: completed an engineering study at a Dutch university during the eighties. The choice of study was decisively influenced by the report of the Club of Rome. The editor researched on topics as photovoltaic solar cells, wind turbines and seasonal storage of solar heat.

  1. Hi

    I noticed you posted my video series “peak oil files” on your site several days ago. I just thought I would let you know the missing video 2 is now up. I wasn’t quite expecting people to discover it so soon.

    I’ve been working on my website recently which has quite a similar aim to yours. I’m trying to do a bit of sorting and present videos so noobs to this concept can see the best and most relevant material for them straight away. You have any particularly favourite videos that I might not be aware of? (I’ll probably troll through your site eventually). Also you might find a few good ones from my site to post on yours.

    Anyways, cheers for the post.

    To redaction of Deep Resource,
    Are you interested in the Dutch translation of P.C.Roberts’ “Washington Murders Countries, the US Constitution, and the Presstitute Media Makes Americans Complicit 90”.
    It’s for free.
    Btw Je homepage laadt heel langzaam, misschien moet je het inladen van de Flash filmpje tijdens het openen van de site uitzetten. De bezoeker kan dan zelf de filmpjes laden en de site als geheel wordt stukken sneller en aantrekkelijker.
    De site ziet wel heel mooi uit!
    Vr. groet, Feng

  3. Note regarding text of today’s post “Europe is Member of the Wrong Club”: “has let itself maneuvered” should read: “has let itself be maneuvered”

    Note regarding text of today’s post “Energy Facts…”: “… and is excellent in giving a feeling for proportion.” How about: “… and is excellent in offering a sense of proportion.”

    Today’s post about Iran: “it’s supply” should read: “its supply”

    Regarding use of English, in today’s post “Flames of War” it says: ‘from a hibernate’. This should be replaced by: ‘from hibernation’.

    In addition, several times the contracted form ‘it’s’ has been used incorrectly:
    it’s = it is, whereas the genetive should be spelled: its. Thus: ‘its objective’.

    I would advise you to run your drafts by a native speaker prior to publication. These mistakes detract from the point you want to make. I’m convinced that without them the posts would gain much in persuasive power.

    Johanna van Zwet, you’re a perfectionist which I, as a native English-speaker (or “American”-speaker) do admire. Your comments reinforce my observation that the Dutch are the most proficient in the world in study and mastery of foreign languages. You challenge the rest of us so-called native speakers. (“Shame us” is probably more appropriate). And I welcome your corrections if I have misused hyphenations here — always a difficult little hurdle in school.

  8. I don’t know wher you got your information regarding the WWII but you are only 110% wrong.
    The US was manufacturing all types of weapons and systems including aircraft, tanks cannon etc. TWO years before we were dragged into the war by the Japs! ! !
    And when we came in England was having the hell bombed out of them, Hitler had declared war on Russia that had almost no military that had anything but HORSES! Italy had attacked North Africa.
    Japan had been at war with China for seven years and had captured all of Manchuria and Korea.
    The United States (because of congressional neglect) ranked 17TH in the world as a military power. There were 165,000 personnel in ALL BRANCHES COMBINED of active duty troops, airmen. sailors and marines. (The Coast Guard was part of the Treasuary).
    Three and a half years later we had whipped the Italians, Germans and Japs. All to an UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER! ! ! ! ! !

    Re the article Fall of Kobane, 10 Oct: immanent should read: imminent.

    imminent = about to happen
    immanent = existing or operating within; inherent

    A very, very interesting site. Since I’ve discoverd it I visit it almost 3 times a day. Doing a very good job, excellent analysis with a litle humor. Love it.

    One your post titled Secret Stupid Saudi-US Deal on Syria, in which you quoted (Mr. Engdahl’s speculation) that Saudi s reportedly offering its crude to China for a mere $50 to $60 a barrel rather than the earlier price of around $100. Such a speculation, however, is unlikely to be accurate.

    A editorial on China’s Global Times ( essentially denies the presence of such a discount deal. The editorial state: “The declining trajectory of international oil prices is good news for China, which, however, will not take illegitimate advantages from it. The Western sanctions over Russia and oil price manipulation can only add more impetus for Beijing and Moscow to join hands. The comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between China and Russia can serve as a strong shield for the latter to withstand risks.”

    Another interesting point is that China’s strategic reserve can hold about 680 million barrels of crude oil. At the end of the last year, only about 141 million barrels was filled. So, without any increase of oil consumption, the Chinese could take as much as additional 540 million barrels for its reserves. Assuming $30/barrel discount, this would results in a $16 billion transfer of payment from Saudi to China. I really doubt that Saudi would be so generous.

    Nice website.

    But, make no mistake, if a Paris-Berlin-Moscow Axis happens, China will not be part of it.

    Start watching at 6:50.

    In this article, Wallerstein points out that China wants an alliance with the US, Japan and Korea.

    If such an alliance takes place, China will treat the US the way the US has treated the UK, like a little brother.

    Which makes me wonder about China. They have 200-300 million extra people they need to get rid of, and the open space between the US pacific coast and the Mississippi river looks tempting.

    Perhaps we should not worry about the America Southwest going back to Mexico (an impending failed state), but instead of Asian wave bigger than any Latino country can send.

    Read your story about PCR and the choice for Europe. You say Europe should wait, but Russia and China may not wait.

    BTW, I am not the guy making these videos. And I know his hocking silver. However, his videos I think right on the spot.

    The pope then Putin coming to the US in September. Hmmm?

  17. @deepresource

    There is much that I like and agree with here in your blog.
    Having said that, I think you are seriously mistaken about your interpretation
    of events re ISIS and your expected rise of a new Turkish Empire( riding on the back of isis?).
    This is not the 1600s anymore. As you yourselves realise, humans are tribal
    creatures. Turkey itself, as it is configured at present, is ‘diverse’ enough, i.e,
    not really that stable. The israelis do not care one bit about isis or Turkey bc
    the facts on the ground show they do not have to, while they dread Iran and
    the Shias bc the facts on the ground have shown that from that corner originates
    a challenge to Zionisms supremacy in the region.
    Erdoghan did utter a few words for public consumption after israeli idf cowards
    murdered a bunch of turkish civilians aboard the M.Marmara in international
    waters. But that was it. Both countries remain close.
    I bet the house your notion of a strong Islamic Caliphate will NOT materialize.
    Also, make no mistake, Syria is far from beaten. The government is still in
    control of the most important areas, including 12 out of 14 governorate capitals.
    Best regards,

    Have you ever heard of Alexander Dugin? Do you remember his 1997 book Foundations of Geopolitics?

    There are some interesting things regarding the US:

    “Russia should use its special forces within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism. For instance, provoke “Afro-American racists”. Russia should “introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics.”

    Racism; Baltimore and South Carolina. Separatism; Texas.

    And don’t forget Ukraine.

    “Ukraine should be annexed by Russia because “Ukraine as an independent state with certain territorial ambitions represents an enormous danger for all of Eurasia and, without resolving the Ukrainian problem, it is in general senseless to speak about continental politics”. Ukraine should not be allowed to remain independent, unless it is cordon sanitaire, which would be inadmissible.”

    I do NOT think Russia is really doing this because they don’t have the resources, however I believe that the Anglo American elite has fallen for some kind of trap. And there is no one to blame BUT THEMSELVES.

    I should have posted this on July 4th. But now I am reminded because of this farce surrounding the presidential election.

    “In the world without America, Europe would have remained true to herself. The mother continent of the West would not be faced with the choice of being either a soulless museum or a conquered province of the Dar al-Islam. And the identity of Western Man would not have been deconstructed in order to make the world safe for McDonalds.”

    A lot of us in the States are perplexed at the seeming absence of any resistance to the current invasion of Europe. Can you offer any insight?

    I read your blog regularly, with delight.

  21. Here an interesting stuff about who wants infest Germany with refugees

  22. John Smith on said:

    Why do Western governments hate Russia so much? Mark Hackard may know.

    I like the interviewer sums up the coming power with Hackard: Europe with the technology, Russia with the natural resources, and China with the factories, they don’t need the US dollar.

    These last few months, this guy warned in a few different interviews that attacks like the one in Paris were coming…. courtesy of the USG.

    Maybe he was right.

  25. John Smith on said:

    BTW, did you notice this film was to come out November 25th.

    And now it has been delayed, again> It was delayed after the Charlie Hebdo attack.

    Article regarding how this Great Migration to Europe has been planned for decades.

    Look at the citations for some great articles and a video of a someone praising the whole situation.

    Interview regarding the holes in the official story of the Paris attacks. And there appears to be a number of them.

  28. John Smith on said:

    Have you seen the cover of the Economist magazine for 2016?

    It is believed the 2015 cover predicted the both Charlie Hebdo and Paris.

  29. John Smith on said:

    Ever heard of the Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi. The man who predicted and demanded the mass immigration of the Third World… in 1923.

    Unf0rtunately, his legacy still lives on.

    Happy New Year Deep Resource!

    I just want to say thank you so much for helping me see the light in these dark times. Some of your comments are just so bang on I often repost them (with full credits of course) elsewhere. I dont think I would have such clarity if it wasnt for you guys. People are beginning to see the light now and 2016 will be a bumpy ride.

    I think its worth looking closely at Solzhenitsyn and his role as mentor to Putin as Solzhenitsyn saw what was coming and was able to warn the Russian President. Supposing he wasnt able to warn Putin and the oligarchs were still in control? If Russia wasnt so much freer (which seems unbelievable) then we wouldnt see what the alternative is and how a society functions without their influence and not getting all Adolf about it. I believe that Solzhenitsyn may have saved us all from their tyranny. God willing.


    ps. Please go easier on us Brits. We really didnt know what this was all about. We are proud Europeans and getting out of the EU will be beneficial to all.

  31. John Smith on said:

    Maybe he is right, for the political elite of the US, it’s all about eliminating the competition.

  40. Your article rebutting Mark Mills at Prager raises interesting points and would be more convincing if there were fewer misspellings/typos and if the writer, as well as contact information were identified.
