A possible future?
While some might have issues with the author's religion, the book itself offers an interesting preview of a world that may come, perhaps sooner than we think. Ecotechnic Future synthesizes current issues and debates and posits a possible future of declining energy availability and the consequences for our civilization. While The Ecotechnic Future may be depressing to some, I found the work insightful and thought provoking. It is useful to remember that we are living in a fossil fuel age that is but a blip in the long story of humanity. What the book examines is what may come after our energy rich blip has passed. I'd recommend this book for people interested in environmental issues or people interested in looking at a possible human future via the long duree.

In depth evolutionary & historic view of our futur
What did you love best about The Ecotechnic Future?
This is a wide reaching historic and evolutionary account and view of human endevours with a view to show that we are heading for the cliff, nature does not care, but that we should change course completely for our own sake. Should be read by anyone who has some sanity left
