Environmental scientist Steve Hallett and veteran journalist John Wright make clear that we are at the crest of a remarkable two-hundred-year glitch in the history of civilization and are about to embark on the decline. Hallett and Wright show, we must plan for a future without reliance on oil. The authors make a compelling case that the key determinant of our global economy is not so much the invisible hand of the marketplace but the inexorable laws of ecology.--Publisher's description
