TOO MUCH MAGIC: Wishful Thinking, Technology, and the Fate of the Nation

A conversation with bestselling author James Howard Kunstler

Event logo

In April of 2005, James Howard Kunstler’s The Long Emergency became a phenomenon. His shocking vision for our post-oil future caught the attention of environmentalists and business leaders and was the subject of much debate, stimulating discussion about our dependence on fossil fuels. In the seven years since its first publication, many of Kunstler’s warnings from The Long Emergency have proved prophetic, and in his new book, TOO MUCH MAGIC: Wishful Thinking, Technology, and the Fate of the Nation, released in July 2012, Kunstler builds on the core arguments of The Long Emergency and argues there is now compelling evidence that forces including the economic depression, decreasing oil production, and increasingly dramatic climate change are combining to “reset the fundamental terms of everyday life.”
