The Long Emergency: Surviving the End of Oil
In stock
"It used to be that only environmentalists and paranoids warned about the world running out of oil and the future it could bring: crashing economies, resource wars, social breakdown, agony at the pump. Not anymore . . . America's dependence on oil is too pervasive to undo quickly, (Kunstler) warns . . . In the meantime, we'll have our hands full dealing with the soaring temperatures, rising sea levels and mega-droughts brought by global climate change. This is a much darker time than 1938, the eve of World War II. The current world population of 6.5 billion has no hope whatsoever of sustaining itself at current levels, and the fundamental conditions of life on earth are about to force the issue. What form will the inevitable attrition take: Starvation, lack of fresh water, epidemic disease or war? The Long Emergency is an eye-opening look at the unprecedented challenges we face in the years ahead, as oil runs out and the global systems built on it are forced to change radically. Softcover, 325 pages
