The World of Homer-Dixon
The moment I switched on the car radio to CBC program The Current, I was instantly riveted to an interview that had just begun. Thomas (Tad) Homer-Dixon, an academic and author, was being interviewed about the implications of the northeast blackout, and his power of extrapolation was truly something to behold. As the discussion continued, he began talking about how we as a society will have no choice but to decentralize on a wide scale. As you hear the interview, many of the issues Gill has been promoting for the past two years were being validated, one by one. You have to hear it to believe it.
When we arrived at our destination, my wife had to snap her fingers in front of my eyes to awake me from my trance.
