It is difficult to argue with the rhetoric force of Jensen. There really is no arguing with the overwhelming evidence he provides to prove that civilization is a planet killing force. However, I am not at all convinced that I agree that our only solution is to destroy our culture and return to a way of living that is pre-civilized. Perhaps a return to a lifestyle that is more in synch with pre-industrialization is a more reasonable goal rather than returning to a pre-agriculture way of life. As with his other books, this is beautifully written and a pleasure to read despite the gravity of the subject.
