Back In NYC editing/picnicing

I remember on this Memorial Day 2010, books I read in 2008/2009. Not pleasant reading to say the least but well worth the effort. Out of Gas: The End of the Age of Oil was an excellent fast read which gives the scientifically challenged an idea of what energy is and how it applies to us. It is written by David Goodstein, a Cal Tech Physics Professor. The Long Emergency by James Howard Kunstlerasks the reader to consider what the world will be like in the aftermath of peak oil. It is fascinating in its hypothesis, and if even a small portion of what the author predicts comes to pass, we are all in for a big uncomfortable change. Happy Memorial Day.
