An Enticing Taste of Albert Bates
I was fortunate enough the other day to get my eager sweaty paws on the nearly finished draft of Albert Bates’ forthcoming masterpiece, The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook – Recipes for Changing Times. It is really the book you’ve been waiting for, a practical, optimistic guide to life beyond the peak. It is due to hit the shelves in early October, and it is really worth waiting for. It will be reviewed at **Transition Culture** nearer the time (once I’ve finished George Monbiot’s new book). In the meantime as a taster, you might enjoy a great interview with Albert Bates that was broadcast on Nashville’s Liberadio. In it he gives a very good introduction to peak oil for beginners, what he calls ‘Peak Oil lite’. Hopefully it will leave you eager to get your hands on the book when it emerges.
