Nature wins
Norman Pagett

  1. I suspect that your argument is a bit oversimplified. Energy-dependent transportation of food is one of the factors limiting the population of a city. Large cities existed for many millennia before Newcomen invented the coal-burning steam engine in 1712. Certainly, many cities will need to downsize. Moreover, city designs will change as the amount and type of available energy changes. Nevertheless, if we avoid extinction, then I expect that we will continue to have cities.
  2. I went to Amazon to see about the book and found that I bought it on 15 October. I guess I will just increase it’s priority on my “to read when there is time” list.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
