"Explains why peak oil, climate change, and the limits to growth affect abortion rights, worker's rights, and civil liberty. The age of fossil fuel is giving way to the age of localized empowerment. We have real problems. This book offers real answers"--Provided by publisher.
Activists of all kinds will be drawn to this impassioned, broad-sweeping treatise examining not only the hidden cause of all social progress, but also the hidden connections between ecology, economy, and policy--and showing how to use this information to effect real change now. How do peak oil, climate change, and the limits of growth affect abortion rights, income equality, and civil liberty? In this broad-gauge, impassioned treatise, author and activist Alexis Zeigler reveals the hidden connections between ecology, economics, politics, and social justice--and shows us how to use those connections to effect real, long-lasting change. Most activist movements suffer from a kind of tunnel vision, Zeigler says, in which the true causes and resulting side effects of the desired change are left unexamined--rendering the movements feeble, short-sighted, and ignorant of their own fallout. This cannot stand, says Zeigler. The only way to effectively deal with the complex problems we are facing is to realize, understand, and incorporate into our solutions the intrinsic interconnectedness of ecology, economics, politics, and social justice. The most-overlooked aspect of any given issue
Born on a self-sufficient farm in rural Georgia, ALEXIS ZEIGLER is a self-taught activist, builder, mechanic, writer, and orchardist. He has organized numerous successful campaigns focusing on political, environmental, and economic localization issues. He is currently working to build Living Energy Farm (livingenergyfarm.org), a zero-fossil-fuel farm that will be economically self-sufficient. The author lives in Charlottesville, VA.
"Zeigler goes where few writers dare, weaving an embrace of despair with the jujitsu of permaculture." --Albert Bates, author of The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook and The Biochar Solution "This remarkably honest and insightful book is part deep explanation of the dumbest things we do, part anthropological study of Western anthropologists, and part hands-on guide to achieving environmental sustainability. It should be read by everyone, and everyone should read it together, with a small group of people ready to act on it." --David Swanson, author of War Is a Lie
