Shaking the city - Page 2

Chris Carlsson's new book takes on the legacy of 1960s SF


I asked Carlsson for his take on the Obama administration's announced plans to allow the mining of millions, possibly billions, of tons of coal on public lands.

"Obama was supported from the beginning by Big Finance an Big Coal," Carlsson responded. He has never shown any indication he is anything but their front man. His lack of imagination on the energy crisis, the economic crisis, the military-empire crisis, and the social crisis is nothing less than remarkable."
