The sky is still falling ...

Down with catastrophism, Joe Kaplinsky's review of James Howard Kunstler's The Long Emergency, is a must read.
The book, Kalpinsky notes, "has received a warm welcome, featuring on the front covers of both the leftish British publication the New Statesman and Pat Buchanan's old-right American Conservative." And why not? The extremes of right and left have found common ground in pessimism, isolationism, opposition to technological progress, authoritarianism, and even anti-semitism.
