5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Primer, Narrowly Focused, Provokes Reflection 16 octobre 2009
Par Robert David STEELE Vivas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I was tempted to limit this book to four stars because it fails to properly recognize, among many others, Buckminster Fuller, e.g. his Critical Path and it provides only passing reference to such foundation works as Limits to Growth: The 30-Year Update and Human Scale, but place it at five stars for two reasons: 1) excessive negativity by other reviewers; and 2) a superb primer for the public ready to get past Al Gore's hyteria, the venom surrounding The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World, and connect in a very easy to read and understanding elementary counterposte to The Resilient Earth: Science, Global Warming and the Fate of Humanity.

Another important reason for attending to this book and respecting its author, apart from him many prior works including the globally recognized The Party's Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies, is the endorsements of two of the top ten (in my view) in this arena, Lester Brown (Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization (Substantially Revised)), and Bill McKibben (Deep Economy: The Wealth of Communities and the Durable Future).

For the lay reader--the normal person not steeped in the environmental and catastrophic literature, this a first-rate overview book.

The author opens by pointing out that it is not just oil that has peaked, but also natural gas, coal, grain, uranium, fresh water, arable land, wild fish, and strategic minerals such as copper, platinum, silver, gold, and zinc.

In a light-hearted effort to offer some good news, the author points out that inequality goes down when excess goes down. As we wean ourselves from many petroleum, plastics, and chlorine-based additions, we will become more like the Amish, with a sufficiency of essentials for all.

The author provided a good discussion of the outrageous difference between Gross Domestic Product (GDP) that measures evil production as well as good production (e.g. hospital waste and prison-slave labor) and the Genuine Progress Indicator. I will post his chart at Phi Beta Iota, the Public Intelligence Blog (Amazon deleted over 350 of my images posted here, I no longer trust Amazon).

In the author's view the central task of this and the next generation is the transition from fossil fuels to more balanced energy sources. This section is almost poetic. He talked about an awakening that is occurring, a multi-dimensional emotional, political, and cultural catharsis, in which the definition of "normal" is about to change BIG TIME.

"Awakening is an on-going visceral as well as intellectual reassessment of every facet of life--food, work, entertainment, travel, politics, economics, and more."

The chapter on tools distinguishes among four classes in relation to their use of energy. The author discusses how the creation of tools, and powered tools especially, led to techno-politics and in now leading to a decline in innovation. I would point out, as Michael O'Hanlon does in Technological Change and the Future of Warfare, that the author is missing the ONE huge area where innovation is truly revolutionary, C4I (command and control, communications, computing, and intelligence). The author makes the connection between new forms of energy and technology and the destruction of old forms of society and family.

The chapter on 50 million farmers (we have 3-4 million now in the USA) is most fascinating, discussing the implications of the looming fuel shortage for mega-agriculture. He points out that US agriculture uses twice as much fuel as the US military. We have a shortage of farmers and a scarcity of fresh water, as global climate change creeps up on us. I am most impressed, Jeffersonian that I am, to read the author's views on how we must move back toward farming preserves, the de-industrialization of agriculture, to engage in permaculture (see Yeoman's Priority One: Together We Can Beat Global Warming, biointensive farming, re-ruralization, and LAND REFORM, which I take to mean the expropriation of mega farmlands from those we just bailed out at taxpayer expense, and a massive planned return to family and county farming.

The chapter on arts and crafts and on the five axioms of sustainability are of passing interest to me. The author does point out that there is no axiom for social equity--I would point him to Yochai Benkler's The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom.

Note: I am going to stop here as Amazon refuses to listen to reviewers demanding additional links and more space. You can read the rest of my review, with other important links, at Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog.

A depressing book, but one that presents an accurate projection of our overuse of resources. Scares you into becoming a believer. An enjoyable, easy read.

Richard has done an incredible job of documenting "This is how it is". We have built a complex and confusing world that is impossible to maintain. We know there is another way to live without destroying ourselves and this beautiful planet!

Par Chuck - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Heinberg has been proved dead wrong one more time. Seems like technology and economics have again improved our lives and effectively enhanced and rationed supplies of scarce resources. Commodity prices have collapsed and supplies are plentiful. Heinberg would prefer to dump technology and economics and force many of us to be subsistence farmers. He provides Cuba as a shining example! His science is terrible and his political views are ridiculous. He's stuck in the radical 60s, and actually says the year 2000 presidential election was stolen - despite all the subsequent studies showing it wasn't. No reason to read what this extremist writes. Remaining copies of this book should be composted - unless they contain heavy metals!
