Podcast: Interview with James Howard Kunstler

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!
