ISBN 978 1 900322 65 2. “Communities, Councils & a Low-Carbon Future – What we can do if government won’t” by Alexis Rowell was published by Transition Books/ Green Books in 2010. The author is a former London Borough of Camden Councillor and works with Transition Belsize so he was well placed to write this work.

ISBN 978-0-86571-639-1. “The Ecotechnic Future – envisioning a post-peak world” by John Michael Greer was published by New Society Publishers in 2009. The book is 269 pages long including Introduction, three Parts of thirteen Chapters, Afterword, Notes, Bibliography and Index. Greer is a new author on the scene (by our standards) however this is not his first work. He had previously written “The Long Descent” (New Society 2008) which, as far as we can tell, was along similar lines to this one. When we purchased this work it was based upon some favourable reviews online at Amazon. What we didn’t know was that Greer heads the “Ancient Order of Druids in America”. Uh-oh – crank alert.
