New Book: ENERGY: Overdevelopment & the Delusion of Endless Growth

Introducing our most ambitious publishing effort to date: ENERGY: Overdevelopment & the Delusion of Endless Growth. A partnership between the Foundation for Deep Ecology and Post Carbon Institute, this 278-page coffee table book offers a visually rich introduction to energy literacy.

ENERGY takes an unflinching look at the systems that support our insatiable thirst for more power (and the ideas behind those systems) along with their unintended side effects. From oil spills, nuclear accidents, mountaintop-removal coal mining, and natural gas “fracking” to renewables, every source of energy has costs. As the authors and photographers assert and show, no place is sacred, no landscape is safe from the relentless search for resources to power perpetual economic growth.

Edited by Tom Butler and George Wuerthner, with a foreword by Douglas Tompkins and introduction by Richard Heinberg, ENERGY features the writing of more than thirty leading thinkers (including Wes Jackson, Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, and Sandra Steingrabber) on energy, society and ecology.

In an effort to extend its impact, ENERGY will be the educational centerpiece of PCI's comprehensive Energy Reality Campaign. This campaign will link the efforts of hundreds of individuals and organizations to raise energy awareness and promote effective responses to our shared energy predicaments. Details soon!
