He remarked with a patriarchal smile as he tore the sheet noisily: ``You had better not lose any time.'' I didn't lose any time. By 1300, E arth was cooling down, High Middle Ages Europe was largely deforested, and nearly all arable land was under the plow.� Europe had reached the Malthusian limit of its means of preindustrial production.� The 1300s were a century of unending calamity for Europe, beginning with famines in 1304, 1305, and 1310, and a major famine began in 1315 that lasted three years.� Famines visited Europe at least once a generation in the 1300s. �In 1 337, England and France began a series of wars that lasted more than a century .� Those events were only a hint at what lied ahead.� Pla gues and famines tend to be conjoined: weakened bodies are susceptible to disease.� The Black Death pandemic probably originated in war-torn and famine-plagued China as early as 1338. �In 1346, it reached Europe.� By 1350, around half of Europe had died and the plague kept reappearing .� War, f amine, and epidemics were so prevalent in the 1300s that the Danse Macabre became an art form in the 1400s and 1500s, after the troubadour profession died out with the Black Death .� Europe became a hell on Earth.� But the work that watermills performed was not subject to famine and disease, and the work of millions of �energy slaves� surely helped hold Europe together.� Labor was in such shortage after the catastrophes that worker wages rose dramatically. [750] In the late 13 00s, in northern Italy�s city-states, the ferment initiated by the rediscovery of ancient Greek teachings flowered in the Renaissance as humanism began its rise in Europe.� Constantinople, which helped preserve ancient Greek teachings instead of destroying them, never fully recovered from the sacking that its �allies� gave it during the Fourth Crusade, which led to Venice�s lucrative dominance of Europe�s spice trade .� In 14 53, Constantinople fell to Ottoman Turks, ending the Roman Empire�s last vestige (other than the Roman Catholic Church ), and humanist scholars fled to Europe, which further reinforced Renaissance humanism.

Brian interacted with such scientists and academics, and was extremely dismayed .� I also tried for many years, and their na�vet� and circular reasoning were probably the most frustrating aspects of their responses .� When I approached one academic who at least mentioned FE as a possibility, and who cited situations that I had been involved with, his reaction was stunning .� That group, as a whole, might be the last to accept FE�s reality.� This reaction is like what the Brookings Institute warned NASA about regarding the UFO/ET issue.� Those with reflexive or sophisticated objections to the idea of FE are defending the scarcity-based ideologies that they gave their allegiance to, as they provided them with material and egocentric rewards.
