The Great Fall-Apart Continues
Previously I observed that with cheap, abundant energy no longer available, it’s impossible to repair and rebuild infrastructure built with cheap oil. Now we can see this happening with the Smithsonian. The huge institution is leaking and creaking, and there isn’t sufficient security to prevent theft. Maybe they will find enough money to fix and right everything, but probably not. It all comes down to the high cost of energy. Expect things to continue falling apart.
