On December 18th, 2008, our Marketing Director Terry Reiber had the privilege of interviewing James Howard Kunstler, author of "The Long Emergency: Surviving the End of Oil, Climate Change, and Other Converging Catastrophes of the Tweny-First Century".
For those of you unfamiliar with The Long Emergency, Kunstler's book is based on the premise that we're past peak oil - easy access to abundent and cheap oil is no longer an option. Kunstler paints a bleak picture of a painful and unplanned transition from an oil economy, made more painful if society prefers to be in denial that a Long Emergency awaits us if we don't act prudently now.
I asked Jim if the sustainable movement could some way help and ameliorate this transition.
I hope you enjoy the conversation that follows!
