The End of the Industrial Interval
Advertisements [?]
Good friends of Democratic Underground:

The recent blackouts in the Northeast, while most likely caused by neglect and corporate greed, as well as misunderstandings on the part of others, are nevertheless previews of coming attractions.

I don't normally promote books, but I recently finished reading "The Party's Over" by Richard Heinberg. It is a well written and easy to understand overview of the era of industrialization, our reliance on fossil fuels, and what it means to our world IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

With all the attention now being focused on energy (properly, in my estimation) I would suggest that those who are very interested in this topic go over to .

There, you will find an introduciton to the problems that currently bedevil us, as well as some solutions, which will be hard for the rest of the world to stomach. It is IMPERATIVE that this information be placed into public debate. We will have to do what he is suggesting sooner than later, and I would rather prepare for the inevitable instead of having it forced upon me.

Any thoughts? Has anyone else read this book, or am I merely playing Chicken Little?
