Treehugger Shows What A Post Fossil Fueled World Looks Like

This one’s a hoot: A Graphic Video Demonstration of Life After The Kunstlerian Decline of a World Dependent on Oil (and if someone could tell me what a “Kunstlerian Decline” actually is, that would be great, since the only occurrence of that phrase is linked to this same Treehugger story). Unfortunately, there is little to the story, mostly a video, so, I can’t do something like write “can you guess what has them all excited?” and hide the video under a more tag, so, just enjoy the humor

There is something poetic about this video of a tanker truck being pulled out of a snowbank by a an Amish horse team in Central Pennsylvania.

But even the horses have their own problems; watch closely at 24 seconds, as a small rodent runs across the road and flips them out. Car blog Jalopnik is traumatized by this “conquest of old technology over new” whereas we deem it symbolic of the inevitable Kunstlerian decline of the fossil-fuel powered world we live in.

There is also something poetic about using a video in which there is lots of snow and ice, and it is very cold to prop up climate alarmism.

    Several problems here for the tree huggers. First, have you ever visited the Amish??? The place stinks. There is horse manure everywhere and it tells. I have lived in communities with a paper mill and prefer it to the horse dung. Second, large animals such as horses and cows produce large quantities of methane. That is most definitely a greenhouse gas and is lighter than air so would readily get into the atmosphere. Contrary to CO2 ommission that are heavy and don’t move upperwards.

    Then there is the matter of the fact that we have plenty of fossil fuels. We can’t use them as our foreign president and his group want to destroy the US and so keep us from using the materials that we have to grow and prosper.

    My grandfather told me that before cars, every city in the world smelled like horse crap all of the time. You could not escape it, and sometimes you couldn’t avoid stepping in it.

    (I’m not sure how he knows this because he was born IN a car well after the Model T and Model A had hit the streets… but he’s my grandfather, so I trust him.)

    Here is alink mentioning Kunstler:

    And here is his own site:

    It would seem that any chaos and decline is all due to America’s greed and dependence on nothing but over-abuse of petroleum products. In addition to our errant use of the financial system.

    We will be the demise of the whole world.

    ummm.. yep.
    Seems that people have been crying for Peak Oil since the 70’s. Even now they are crying. The only thing “peaking” is the permissions to drill and explore. The more we drill and the more we explore, the more we find.

    Besides, I don’t get it. All this does is show how people work together. All this video shows is how a farmer, who also depends on oil, pulls a stuck truck out of the snow.

    So what?

    I live about 5 miles from Lancaster County; and can confirm that farming- Amish or otherwise- and raising animals does smell. It smells like what it’s supposed to smell like- large animals and crops! I also live in much closer proximity to horse farms and a few farms that raise sheep and cattle. It is country living, and it beats the crap out of living near train stations (been there too) or highways! (ditto) The exhaust and noise pollution is far worse than farming, by my standards.
    I know a neighbor who was dumb enough to go to the farmer across the street from us, and ask him why it smells so bad in the spring- which of course is when they fertilize their feed crops. The farmer looked striaght at our very citified neighbor, and said, “Son, why don’t you just move on back to the city?” We laughed and laughed when he told us what the farmer said, we all laughed till the cows came home!!!!
