Today it is all about climate change, but climate change may just be one symptom of a much larger problem for society, energy consumption. There is a very good possibility that we we are reaching a limit as to how much oil (energy) we can produce. Our society has been built on an assumption of unlimited supply of affordable energy. Kunstler makes a case that this model may not be flexible enough to survive on a limited diet of energy let alone a decreasing supply of fuel. His style of writing is pretty confrontational and uncompromising but in this case I think that might be the right tone. It is worth reading in any case. Even if it isn't happening now, it will happen eventually and we need to be facing its reality.
