The Long Emergency Is Here
Stupendous. As the world cycles down into James Kunstler's "The Long Emergency," it will--I'm heartily convinced--evince the peak-oil-made-manifest, climate-change-made-unmanagable world of Octavia E. Butler's "The Parable of the Sower."
This world is not far removed from our own. A pin-prick here; a flight of factual fancy there; and we are living it.
Our world is coming to a head. And Octavia E. Butler nails it on the head. Human greed, apathy, and ignorance have brought us to this heady shore.
The long emergency has finally come. The Parable of the Sower is coming... And twilight follows.
