    The industrial age made possible by fossil fuels will surely decline as these fuels run out. In The Ecotechnic Future John Michael Greer alerts the listener to possible changes future generations may face as these dwindling fuel supplies lead first to a deindustrial age, then to a society which salvages the remnants of our current plenty, and eventually to a time in which people may learn to live in balance with the environment: an ecotechnic society.

    Overall

    While some might have issues with the author's religion, the book itself offers an interesting preview of a world that may come, perhaps sooner than we think. Ecotechnic Future synthesizes current issues and debates and posits a possible future of declining energy availability and the consequences for our civilization. While The Ecotechnic Future may be depressing to some, I found the work insightful and thought provoking. It is useful to remember that we are living in a fossil fuel age that is but a blip in the long story of humanity. What the book examines is what may come after our energy rich blip has passed. I'd recommend this book for people interested in environmental issues or people interested in looking at a possible human future via the long duree.
