The Ecotechnic Future
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: 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 ecotehcnic 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.
The Ecotechnic Future Audiobook | John Michael Greer |
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. What did you love best about The Ecotechnic Future?
This is a wide reaching historic and evolutionary account and view of human endevours with ecotechhic view to show that we are heading for the cliff, nature does not care, eecotechnic that futur should change course completely for our own sake.
Should be read by anyone who has some sanity left. What other book might you compare The Ecotechnic Future to and why? Eaarth, The Great Turning. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Some of it is really scary and hard hitting stuff, which is hard to stomach. Absolutely worth every minute. I’m definitely getting more JMG books. How could the performance have been better? If this book were a movie would you go see it? Great wake up call from a lot of modes of thinking that turn out to be very old after all. I thought I got some exposure from being an English major in college, but apparently a lot of the good stuff wasn’t on the reading list.
Would have loved to have this guy as a prof. I would suggest readers do the same.
The greater the number of decades you have lived, the better able you are to see the future he outlines. Regardless of your political beliefs or scientific knowledge, you will learn from this text and have much to ponder. Our society is destined to change significantly as petroleum supplies decline and arguably we are just beginning to see these changes. Mr Greer’s book describes a future much different than what most people envision.
This is an excellent book to encourage your offspring to read if you’re a parent. In The Ecotechnic Future, the ever-interesting, ever well-read John Michael Greer gives us his take on how the world will change as Peak Oil increasingly becomes felt.
His viewpoint is appreciated: Sober, I think, is the word to describe it. It’ll be harder for all of us, and that is sad, but it is what it is.
Those familiar with his other work will recognize his way with words. Yes, John Michael Greer’s prose is very Greer-like. Tony Craine gives a fine reading. An important book visioning the future. It inspires me to skill up.
I listen to it while gardening. In short he envisions the futuree of society after the decline of fossil fuel resources and a return to subsistence living, composting and organic gardening, which he currently practices. There is no credit given to human ingenuity and the small amount of energy used when compared to total sunlight striking the earth.
