GREER, JOHN MICHAEL (2009): The Ecotechnic Future: Envisioning a Post-Peak World

Página sobre el libro en el web de la editorial.

In response to the coming impact of peak oil, John Michael Greer helps us envision the transition from an industrial society to a sustainable ecotechnic world – not returning to the past, but creating a society that supports relatively advanced technology on a sustainable resource base.

Fusing human ecology and history, this book challenges assumptions held by mainstream and alternative thinkers about the evolution of human societies. Human societies, like ecosystems, evolve in complex and unpredictable ways, making it futile to try to impose rigid ideological forms on the patterns of evolutionary change. Instead, social change must explore many pathways over which we have no control. The troubling and exhilarating prospect of an open-ended future, he proposes, requires dissensus – a deliberate acceptance of radical diversity that widens the range of potential approaches to infinity.

Written in three parts, the book places the present crisis of the industrial world in its historical and ecological context in part one; part two explores the toolkit for Ecotechnic Age, and part three opens a door to the complexity of future visions.

GRANT, LINDSEY (2005): The Collapsing Bubble: Growth And Fossil Energy

GRANT, LINDSEY (2005): The Collapsing Bubble: Growth And Fossil Energy

Contending that the energy debate should not be framed as “What energy sources will be available to replace fossil fuels?” but rather as “What population can be supported at a decent standard by the energy sources that will be available after the transition from fossil fuels?” Grant argues that we can create a more harmonious balance with the rest of the biosphere—but at much lower population levels with less consumptive habits.

Lindsey Grant is a retired Foreign Service Officer; he was a China specialist and served as Director of the Office of Asian Communist Affairs, National Security Council staff member, and Department of State policy Planning staff member. As Deputy Secretary of State for Environmental and Population Affairs, he was Department of State coordinator for the Global 2000 Report to the President, Chairman of the interagency committee on Int’l Environmental Committee and US member of the UN ECE Committee of Experts on the Environment. His books include: Too Many People, Juggernaut, The Horseman and the Bureaucrat, Elephants in Volkswagen, How Many Americans?

ORLOV, DMITRY (2008): Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects

ORLOV, DMITRY (2008): Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects

In the waning days of the American empire, we find ourselves mired in crises, with multiple foreign-policy messes and our economy in steep decline. These trends mirror the experience of the Soviet Union in the early 1980s. Reinventing Collapse examines the circumstances of the USSR’s demise and offers insights into how we might prepare for coming events here in the US: (1) Mitigation—alleviating the impact of the coming upheaval; (2) Adaptation—adjusting to the reality of changed conditions; (3) Opportunity—flourishing after the collapse.
