The sinking of Titanic - peak oil and climate disaster
A study of the sinking of the Titanic shows staggering parallelism with our current situation with peak oil and climate change.
Titanic: speed is important
Factor: Sister ship ''Olympic'' and maiden voyage record
The Titanic shall cross the Atlantic faster than the sister ship ''Olympic'' one year before.
Titanic disaster: Ignore warnings
Factor: Private telegrams - overloaded radio operators - the officers are laughing at the ice warnings of other ships
Titanic: Factor: Full speed despite the ice-field
Despite of all warnings the speed of the Titanic is not reduced. Thereby the Titanic is amidst the ice-field already and the officers know about it.
Last warning to the Titanic
Also the last ice warning from the ship ''California'' is not passed to the bridge - the captain goes sleeping...
Titanic full ahead in dark night
Factor: Missing binoculars - dark night - and full speed ahead yet. On the bridge of the Titanic two officers are looking for icebergs, without binoculars, because they do not know where they are.
The collision of the Titanic
The logic consequence: Confrontation with an iceberg
The two officers detect an iceberg ahead, much too late.
Damage report of the Titanic
Factor investigation: One whole hour is needed to have the whole damage reported
