Jeff Desjardins presents one interpretation of when we will run out of each metal or energy source. While the technicalities of some of this information can be debated, he thinks the general theme runs the same. There is a limited supply of these commodities, and if there are no discoveries (not likely), no price changes (not likely), and no changes in consumption (not likely), he thinks that will run out relatively soon. In his opinion, there are two caveats that are always worth considering when looking at something like this....

"We are in an era as we transition from the American/Western dominated world to the next. Last year I described the various moves by China to seize control of the world economy and that process is continuing ... exemplified during 2015 by the mad rush to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank in defiance of the USA.

Today's geoscience students utilize a variety of cognitive processes and spatial skills during their learning experience. These include the application of schemes, image construction, detecting patterns, memorizing figures, mental manipulation and interpretation, making predictions and deducing the orientation of themselves and the rocks around them. Digital 3D geological models allow students to visualize and interrogate geology; they reinforce spatial skills, facilitate student recognition of pre-learnt geological principles in the field and encourage students to think about geological proce...

Jeff Desjardins reports that over the last 20 years, the world economy has relied on the Chinese economic growth engine more than most people realize. The 1.4 billion people living in the most populous country (China) account for 13% of global GDP, which is significant no matter how it is interpreted. However, in the commodity sector, China has another magnitude of importance. The fact is that China consumes huge amounts of materials, energy, and food. That is why the prospect of slowing Chinese growth is likely to continue as a source of problems for investors focused on the commodity sector.... More →

James Bamford opines that managing competing interests, asymmetric information, and different assumptions about the future are hallmarks of successfully negotiated JV agreements. Typically, when deal negotiators encounter disagreement, they turn to a set of tried-and-true negotiating options ... Compromise, hold ground, cede the point, trade for a concession on another term, or, if the difference is fundamental, walk away from what might otherwise be an attractive deal.

An additional option should be added to the set ... use a contingent deal term. Under-utilized in joint ventures, ... More →

Campbell and Campbell (2004) report in the Chinese journal, EnviroTechnology, that clean-water resources are depleting and water costs are increasing as high-cost, low quality surface-water resources are brought online. Developing, maintaining and protecting groundwater supplies over the past century began by drilling a hole in the ground and pumping water to the surface via an engineered system. New technology was neither available nor needed.

Over the past 30 years, however, significant population growth has occurred in both urban and rural U.S. and China, and the relatively shal... More →

S. Afsah, K. Salcito and C. Wielga (the authors) report that Energy Efficiency is an over-rated policy tool when it comes to cutting energy use and CO2 emissions ... that is the basic message promoted by the U.S. think tank, the Breakthrough Institute (BTI), and amplified in major news outlets like the New Yorker and the New York Times. Their logic is that every action to conserve energy through efficient use leads to an opposite reaction to consume more energy, a rebound mechanism, which, according to the BTI, can negate as much as 60-100% of saved energy, and in some cases can backfire to in...

Dr. Conca reports that growing inequality has become one of the major political and economic concerns in the world as well as in the U.S. The growing disparity of wealth today has many parallels with the unequal societies that emerged in the Middle Ages, where wealth and power resided primarily in the hands of a few feudal lords including kings, dukes and assorted noblemen.

At the same time, energy issues, supplies and environmental effects have also been growing. It is easy to think that most things track evenly with wealth, the more money you have, the more of everything you can h... More →

A Brief Review by I2M Eds - As stated, nuclear plants can generate a relatively dependable baseload electricity but are tremendously costly to build (but constructed like dams to last for 50 years and more), produce bad radioactive waste (only if you eat it and sleep with it), and present an attractive target for terrorism (but plants are built like fortresses). Other options cost less and produce no deadly long-lived waste, for which there still is no permanent storage option in the U.S. (but an option is available at Yucca Mt., but for political opposition, there are no technical issues).More →

Dr. Conca reports that the largest fossil fuel company in the world predicts our energy mix will not change a whole lot over the next 25 years. In fact, Exxon Mobil projects that oil and gas will actually increase by 2040. This unfortunate future stems from the age-old conundrum of trying not to eat sugar when your pockets are full of candy.

The Earth has so much fossil fuel, and it has become so cheap to extract it, that it defies logic to think that humans will not keep burning it as their main source of energy. The continued low oil prices are a case in point. Oil prices will rem... More →

Campbell opined that new methods, procedures, and devices are transforming the way the water-supply industry will do business in the 21st Century. Past practices point the way to improved technological and managerial efficiency in groundwater development, water-well construction, maintenance, and protection from contamination. The cost-benefit of the use of groundwater and surface water requires new ways to meet demands involving conjunctive use programs.

Past practices have depleted the low-cost, high-quality groundwater resources, and as a result water costs will be higher in the... More →
