In 2009, The New Yorker profiled the James Howard Kunstler and kindred spirits in an article entitled, "The Dystopians." What earned him that distinction was his 2005 book The Long Emergency which, in its own words, described "the end of oil, climate change, and other converging catastrophes of the twenty-first century." In his latest book, Kunstler returns to the scene of these festering crimes to explain how magical thinkers are hoodwinking us with false illusions that technology will save us from these looming disasters. Under his watchful gaze, governments, corporations, scientists, and futurists all come in for criticism, much of it scathing. Must-reading for resolute realists. Editor's recommendation.
