I was not fond of this book halfway through Practically every line was a cited bit of information This made it very difficult to digest or compare the information and the author did not seem to take any form of progress or potential into consideration The second half of the book however focused on a few situations in greater depth Those situations dealt with issues that had massive effects on entire nations and so they provide solid sample information for the rest of the yet uneffected world The author s own view starts to be revealed here but remains foggy or at least minor All the same this was a very useful book in adding to my own understanding of energy and agriculture and the debate of those topics 5 stars not because it is perfectly written but because it manages to achieve its goal

Read this book and be afraid For people already familiar with Peak Oil and its repercussions it will not come as much of a shock to learn how intimately dependent modern industrial civilization is on oil and how its end will mean the necessary decline in the Earth s carrying capacity for human life If I were entirely new to the topic however this slim but succinct book would serve as an excellent introduction and concise summary Straightforward and highly readable the author describes how our industrial scale agriculture has decimated the planet s natural ecosystems and will soon come to a halt due to dwindling fossil fuels that power its impressive output He then provides two historical case studies of the outcome when ready access to energy gets cut off North Korea and Cuba Both countries struggled painfully when the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s which resulted in sharply curtailed imports of fossil fuels and food While the DPRK never really recovered from the ensuing mass famine and impoverishment mainly due to their emphasis on industrial production and the military Cuba managed to pull through better owing to the successful albeit forced transition to rural based society practicing organic farming The conducive tropical climate didn t hurt eitherThe book focuses on practical advise and actions one can start taking to better prepare ourselves with a long section at the end listing the many organizations dealing with permaculture and sustainable living for the reader to take things furtherWhile the tone is overall uite positive surprisingly with the emphasis on remaining hopeful despite the gloomy prospect of the inevitable some uestions that I continue to have are How many people can the planet support on organic permaculture based food production If this is still substantially less than the 9 billion projected population by mid 21st century we will still face the inevitable mass starvation and apocalyptic conditions during the transition While being knowledgeable about organic farming techniues and rural community living helps not everyone will have a chance to see it in practice only the lucky survivors It then follows that there may not be much of a point in learning these techniues now in the first place since the focus should be on surviving the transition Heading for the hills and bunker mentalities may not be so far fetched after allPredicting how things will unravel is much harder than painting a possible future for the remaining population POST fossil fuels Even the experts like Dennis Meadows shy away from this citing too many variables in the model I suppose then it is up to the imagination of writers and artists
