ECOTOPIA EMERGING PDF

This prequel to Callenbach's classic Ecotopia is a multi-stranded novel that dramatizes the rise and triumph of a powerful American movement to preserve the earth as a safe, sustainable environment. The story springs from harsh realities: Toxic contamination of air, water, and food has become intolerable. Nuclear meltdowns threaten. Military spending burdens the economy. Politicians squabble over outdated agendas while the country declines. But then dedicated people begin to respond in their own ways to the crisis, and a fresh hope arises.

However, given the meticulous effort everywhere else, I suspect Eitner has the correct date in his draft and this date conflict is simply a typographical error that detracts not at all from this fine addition to Whitman scholarship. By Ernest Callenbach. Berkeley: Banyan Tree Books, Ernest Callenbach hates cars — in this novel, the word driver is an obscenity.

His description of the air of a great city, in the early s, is that every molecule has passed through at least one engine and exhaust system. It is a mad, unreal, almost totally alienated scene; rivers of cars, cars, cars are pouring, stopping, intertwining. The elements of Ecotopia are gathering, coalescing. The corporate-industrial-bureaucratic powers, of course, are sensitive to this; they are perfectly out of touch with any local earth-place, but their feelers for politics are extraordinarily delicate.

They send burglars in the night to Bolinas, and they mass troops threateningly on the NevadaCalifornia border. Locked into their nuclear, central-power madness, they cannot understand the soft-teclmology path. The West, at the end of the 72 Western American Literature novel, has begun to fulfill the ecological vision: in-place, steady-state, lowenergy living; small, employee-owned companies; libertarian social contract: in all things, ecological accounting.

Ecotopia Emerging is an angry, hopeful, intelligent, accurate tract. It is an honest attempt at practicality: as the sequel to Ecotopia , which was a sort of Looking Backward in green, it tries to show in detail how an ecologically responsible society might actually come about.

But it is not a very good novel, as a novel. The scene is cloying. But I wonder if there has ever been a utopian novel which is also a good novel — that is, for a minimum, one that heeds the paradoxes, depth, and occasional plain orneriness of people.

Perhaps we face here a fundamental clash of genres. Read as an essay, though, Ecotopia Emerging is instructive. In particular, there is an identity for the West here that is highly interesting.

Living in the tiny seaside town of Bolinas on the northern California coast meant spending a lot of time outdoors. Lou moved with an appealing springiness, as if her energy flowed from the tips of her toes right up through her large grey eyes. Brown tousled hair curled around her delicate face. She had a bubbly laugh and a voice that was low and throaty, especially for someone only 17?
