The Energy of Slaves

Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2014
Rate this:
A radical analysis of our master-and-slave relationship to energy and a call for change. Nikiforuk makes a comparison between slavery and fossil fuels. Like slaveholders, we feel entitled to surplus energy and rationalize inequality, even barbarity, to get it. But endless growth is an illusion, and now that half of the world's oil has been burned, our energy slaves are becoming more expensive by the day. What we need, the author argues, is a radical new emancipation movement.
