James Howard Kunstler Explains What "The End of Cheap Energy" Will Mean For Us All

Transition has been the keyword of my semester. My internship with the Clean Energy Fund has served as my transition between being a student and being a graduate. My work has focused on promoting speakers who help others to understand how to transition – whether that transition is away from fossil fuels, into resilient communities, or towards our personal and collective futures.

James Howard Kunstler and The End of Cheap Energy

Kunstler

 

James Howard Kunstler has written eight novels, including Geography of Nowhere, Home from Nowhere, and The Long Emergency, countless articles, essays and blogs (www.kunstler.com) when the scene outside his window, on his street—on most of the cities and streets in America—caught his attention. “…the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work.”
