Think electric cars bode well for civilization? Author and environmentalist James Howard Kunstler begs to differ — chiefly, he says, because America (and many other countries) has created vast, wasteful suburban landscapes.
Kunstler will address this and other environmental themes at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the University of Vermont Davis Center. The lecture, "The End of Cheap Energy," is free and open to the public.
Wednesday's talk is a part of a series of seminars, "Vermont’s Energy Future," co-sponsored by UVM’s Center of the Research on Vermont, the Transportation Research Center and the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics.
