Electric cars are NOT a pipe dream. Fossil fuel cars are for greedy, selfish people.

Yeah, no, that's not what you said. A few posts in and you're already lying about your past failures. Here's one of your previous claims, from Jan 2013, early in the first thread:
Indeed, there are actually two contradictions vs your current predictions in there:
1. You claimed a supply shortfall based price spike -- contrary to your current claim that supply and demand do not apply.
2. You claimed that the exorbitantly high price of oil/gas would cause the economy to collapse -- except that the price of oil/gas went down and the economy hasn't collapsed: even if the economy does collapse later, you'd still be wrong!

Yes. It has "risen" from over $100/BRL to today's$39/ BRL !

Have any more strange math or preposterous stories?

I have been saying all along that the price of oil would rise until it couldn't be afforded and after that the economy would experience grave damage. That is exactly what happened.

We have reached the thermodynamic limit to the oil price.

This has all been well covered on the Etp confirmation thread. You know that. Quit trying to throw up a smoke screen. And don't call me a liar! It is against the rules.

I didn't call you a liar, I said you are lying. There's a difference (I don't know - and don't claim - if you lie about everything, just about this). If you don't want to be called a liar, stop lying.

In any case, unresponsive again. Why don't you tell us what your new prediction for when this apocalypse will be noticeable? Last year you said it would be noticeable via social unrest by the end of summer. When, now, can I expect to notice this apocalypse?

Not when documented by reposting your own earlier posts, like 318 of the Apocalypse Soon thread where you claimed increasing production cost would force oil prices to rise and economic collapse because of the rise; But now you are claiming, in post 135 of this thread, that you were correct in your earlier predictions (of a rise, etc.).

I am not lying. You are extremely rude.

The readers of this science forum, if there were any, would wonder why your arguments are so terrible, and yet you think you are winning anyway. You seem way too proud of yourself and way too angry at me. So does everybody else. You all seem a little stressed out to me. It is like there is some sort of agenda here. I am so sorry to disturb this transparent propaganda machine with the truth.

There is no way for me to predict that. You are so deep in denial that I doubt you will ever notice.

Uh - no, it didn't. Reality:

The economy collapsed due to the collapse of the MBS bubble.
Oil prices dropped precipitously AFTER the bubble popped, since lower economic output equals lower spending on everything (including oil)
The economy recovered.
Oil prices ROSE - indicating that your claim that oil was no longer affordable is false.

That's what really happened.

Um, billvon, the quote you keep bringing up was from 2012 and I was talking about what would happen in the future from there. So my statement had nothing to do with the 2008 spike and crash.

In 2008, the oil price did not stay at 147.50 dollars per barrel for very long. It did damage the economy, though. Then the oil price went back up and stayed over 100 dollars per barrel for several years. The oil price crossed the maximum affordable oil price curve around March of 2012. It stayed above the curve until it finally began to crash in June of 2014. So my statement is perfectly consistent even if you claim not to understand why.

So, aside from your obsessive objection to something I once said in 2012, do you have any real arguments? If you do, please post them on the Etp model confirmation thread. Thanks.

So your quote ignored recent history. OK.
That your predictions have been consistently wrong, and that you attempt to revise them after the fact to make yourself look like you are less wrong.
That you ignore the cost of production of oil.
That you have no understanding of basic economics.
That you base your theories on your philosophy rather than on reality.

Those are the basics.

As I said before, if you want to talk about the Etp model, do it on the appropriate thread. This one is about electric cars.

Given that you're the one who gets your threads locked and has the real scientists/engineers challenging you, I'm pretty comfortable with how I'm perceived vs you are perceived.
Then tell me when a reasonable person would notice. Updating the "civil unrest" prediction you made last year would be a good start: when do you think the civil unrest is going to start now?
So why did you post it in here? Trolling?

The argument from authority given by an authoritarian.

I don't know. Stop trying to muddy the Watters.

It is like you are afraid to try to make a serious argument about what I am presenting now.

Not at all. Why are you are so paranoid? I had just left an answer to billvon's post that he left for me at another establishment. I noticed his post here (since I am also interested in electric car pipedream delusions) and thought I would say hello (and direct him to my post). I noticed you were here too and I didn't want you to feel left out, so I included you as well. Neither one of you seems very happy to see me.

Ahh, excellent. So when push comes to shove, you are actually less sure of this two-year old economic collapse than you were when you first claimed it started. That is at least a little progress.

When did that grave damage happen?

I quoted Futilitist's post 140 of this thread, made less than a year ago! (When oil prise was rising to peak of ~3 times it present cost but Futilitist claims to have always been correct!)

If this post entices him to come back with more of his Ecoli model junk it will you on your head!
