...The House of Saud, so the Jackass has claimed for two months, is in danger of falling, along with the Petro-Dollar.
Well this week, reports have come out that King Abdullah faces death.
He underwent a mid-November back surgery but has not recovered, or even come into consciousness.
His entire set of organs has shut down, no longer functioning.
The risk to the Petro-Dollar was high with the Bandar killing.
The risk just went double acute with a succession to the throne imminent.
Domestic challenges by an increasingly aware population, beset by higher cost of living, will come.
The great Saudi oil surplus is slowly dwindling, what with higher domestic usage in a higher standard of living. The foreign challenge will remain from HezBollah, with roots from the radical and very powerful Shiite sect.
Expect the Petro-Dollar defacto standard to fall in the coming months, as only weak successors remain in the line of surviving brothers. Imagine the impact if the Saudis announce that Euros, Pounds, Swiss Francs, and Yen, even Gold are accepted for crude oil transactions. The Petro-Dollar is walking dead....

Your not the only one that thinks there might be a new little ice age.
The PDF is by a Professer Will Alexander a south african has been called a climate change skeptic
but just thinks that climate change is caused by other things other than humans.
The synchronous snowfalls in the southern hemisphere were preceded by severe drought conditions in the USA and unusual conditions in Europe. Nobody dared postulate that they were the consequence of climate change caused by human activities. But please read my article in Civil Engineering published in 2008 on the likelihood of global droughts from 2009 to 2016. Perhaps the day will come when our prediction methods are formally recognised.
I have repeatedly mentioned that there are increasing reports that the world could be entering a mini ice age. This possibility was confirmed by our own studies of South African hydro-meteorological data. There was more to come.
National crisis ahead

It gets tiring to hear people calling those of us who continue to live our lives and not obsess about the end of the world as sheeple................Pretty sad. No, you all who think the end of the world is coming are not elite in any way. You are arrogant, smug, and totally disinformed. I feel sorry for you.
