James Howard Kunstler, one of the most acute and engaging urban thinkers today, describes the impending end of cheap oil, its effects on the American life we have built with cheap commercial aviation, and our reliance on complex transportation systems to maintain our electrical grid and food supply. When this finite energy supply dwindles, Kunstler contends that our lives will, out of necessity, become local, as the global economy becomes unsustainable and we enter a period of economic and social turbulence.
