The statement that there can be no economic activity without  energy and that fossil fuels are finite contrasts with the fact that money is not finite and can be created by governments via their central banks at zero marginal cost whenever needed.

An important fact about COAL, GAS and OIL (especially when produced via fracking) is that their net energy ratios are falling rapidly. In other words the energy needed to extract a given quantity of fossil fuels is constantly increasing. The falling ratio 'EROI' (Energy Return on Energy Invested ) provides yet another warning that we can no longer rely on fossil fuels to power our economies. In 1940 it took the energy of only one barrel of oil to extract 100. Today the energy of 1 barrel of oil will yield only 15. We cannot wait until the ratio falls to 1/1 before we invest seriously in alternative sources of energy, because by then industrial society as we know it doday will have ceased to exist. An EROI of 1:1 means that it takes the energy of one barrel of oil to extract one barrel of oil - oil production would simply stop!

PS: A link between growth in energy consumption and GDP growth is clearly illustrated on slide 13 of Gail Tverberg's presentaion entitled ''Ooop! The world economy depends on an energy-related bubble''. In fact, the slide shows that growth in energy consumption usually precedes GDP growth.

Afirmația că nu poate exista activitate economică fără energie și că combustibilii fosili sunt finiți contrastează cu faptul că banii nu sunt finiți și pot fi creați de guverne prin intermediul băncilor lor centrale la costuri marginale zero ori de câte ori este nevoie.

Un fapt important despre cărbunele, gazul și petrolul (mai ales atunci când sunt produse prin fracking) este că raporturile lor energetice nete scad rapid. Cu alte cuvinte, energia necesară pentru a extrage o anumită cantitate de combustibili fosili este în continuă creștere. Raportul în scădere „EROI” (Returul Energiei asupra Energiei Investite) oferă încă un avertisment că nu ne mai putem baza pe combustibilii fosili pentru a ne alimenta economiile. În 1940 a fost nevoie de energia unui singur baril de petrol pentru a extrage 100. Astăzi, energia unui baril de petrol va da doar 15. Nu putem aștepta până când raportul scade la 1/1 înainte de a investi serios în surse alternative de energie, pentru că până atunci societatea industrială așa cum o cunoaștem în prezent va fi încetat să mai existe. Un EROI de 1:1 înseamnă că este nevoie de energia unui baril de petrol pentru a extrage un baril de petrol - producția de petrol s-ar opri pur și simplu!
