Last warning to the Titanic

Factor: Also the last ice warning from the ship ''California'' is not passed to the bridge - the captain goes sleeping...



  1912-04-14, 22:21


A cargo steamer named "California" is in the same ice-field. The local captain thinks the situation is much too dangerous to drive on in the night. The "California" stops and is reporting this to the Titanic. But also in this case the radio operator does not pass the message to the bridge. He is overloaded by private telegrams and cursing to the "California" radio operator not to desturb his work. After one hour trials to take contact the "California" crew goes sleeping without having reached the Titanic crew. Also the captain of the Titanic, captain Smith, is going to sleep...

  Autumn 2007 published the energy watch group the peak oil study


Energy politic
Decades of wrong energy politic. Instead of more living standard with less energy usage, partial the contrary was reached. A result of the wrong tax politic.


Critics on energy politic
The energy politic in the western industrial countries matches in stubbornness and incorrigibleness the politics in the east block from 1980 to 1989. A politics of demise.




  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.


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
1912-4-14, [23:40] 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
