    Just finished your excellent book and first want to say how grateful It’s made me to have a CLEAN bed to retreat to every night. But more importantly, want to commend you for your message. I listened to your interview with Terry McLeod, heard the passion in your voice concerning the perils to this planet fading into the void that is his brain. I found him dismissive and typical of media hosts these days. Their ignorance and indifference is shocking to me. But you held steady and got the word out. We ARE in trouble and if no one will listen to reason, they may listen to a good story. So thank you for writing this very important book. Hey, and it was a darn good read, too!

    All best in future. I’ll be following your work.

      Thanks, Hallyhook! I really appreciate the comments. I think it’s difficult for most people to wrap their heads around the fact that something like cheap oil, which we’ve based our society on for as long as anyone alive can remember, might be a bubble. There’s a really great expression, quoted in The Long Emergency, and attributed to Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the late ruler of Dubai: “My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I drive a Mercedes, my son drives a Land Rover, his son will drive a Land Rover, but his son will ride a camel.” We need more of that kind of realism. All the best!

I would love to hear what you think!
