Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote Blip in order to address the real inconvenient truth - we industrialized Homo sapiens are on an unsustainable course, the inevitable culmination of which is our imminent demise. Regrettably, our only "acceptable" option going forward is to stay the course. This is our "predicament".
The purpose of Blip is to create universal awareness of our predicament, in the hope that someone will devise a less catastrophic resolution than the one that I envision.

About the Author

Since 2005, Chris Clugston has conducted extensive research into human"sustainability", with a focus on NNR (nonrenewable natural resource) scarcity. NNRs are the fossil fuels, metals, and nonmetallic minerals that enable our industrial existence.
His goal has been to articulate and quantify the causes, implications,and con­sequences associated with industrial humanity's "predicament" - our self-inflicted, self-terminating human/Earth relationship.
Clugston's first book, Scarcity - Humanity's Final Chapter?, examines industrial humanity's enormous and ever-increasing NNR utilization and its inevitable consequence, increasingly pervasive global NNR scarcity.
His latest book, Blip - Humanity's 300 year self-terminating experiment with industrialism, explores increasingly pervasive global NNR scarcity and its inevitable consequence, the imminent and permanent collapse of human industrialism and industrial humanity.
