Interview with James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency.
We discuss what his book, The Long Emergency, is about; why he doesn’t see his book as a prognostication of a doomsday; writing about living in a world of peak oil with a certain relish; the hardships that we all will face; political uncertainty; why he believes that alternative such as biodiesel, electric cars and solar power will not and should not preserve our current lifestyle; America’s short-term memory loss of the 1973 oil embargo; President Carter’s environmental legislation; how we became dependent on other countries for oil; OPEC; the oil fields of Cantarell, Burgan, Ghawar and Daikin; how deep our petroleum dependency goes; the psychology of previous investments; the Rocky Mountain Institute; the hypercar; Asian pirates in the Pacific coast; the breakdown of governments in the world; designer viruses to kill off surplus population; Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution; his “racist” views on Southern culture; living in the last days of a belle epoch; the change in economies amenities, agriculture, cities and justice; looking for the silver lining; the Congress of New Urbanism; what has changed since he wrote The Long Emergency; what his time line is for the coming Long Emergency.
