Hell-bent on preserving the privileges of the wealthy in the face of a looming resource crisis, the British government executes a false flag terrorist attack and shuts down the national electricity grid with the explicit goal of causing rapid population reduction. In the ensuing turmoil, a shadowy cabal of globalists watches with interest from a bunker buried deep beneath frozen Arctic wastes and readies to roll out "the experiment" across the world. Seat of Mars follows the fortunes of a handful of ordinary people flung into extraordinary times. These include Rose, a teenage astrophysics prodigy and a Goth, who finds herself pulled into a web of intrigue within a fortified and ethnically cleansed London; Jack and Cat, a city couple who find themselves stranded on a makeshift commune; and the resourceful, self-educated prepper Art Gwavas who sees the mayhem as a chance to take back what is rightfully his. The story poses the wider question of how well any of us would fare if the magic carpet of industrial civilisation were suddenly pulled out from under us, and whether something beautiful can emerge from the glowing embers of chaos.

A little over 21 years ago I determined for myself how this story is going to end, but kept my mouth shut. Then, a little over 17 years ago, I sensed a change in the wind and wrote the article "Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century" which launched my writing career. Since thenI have published three books and hundreds of essays, but I stand by everything I have written since the very beginning. Everything is going according to plan. I don't know whose plan it is, and I think that it's a really stupid plan, but everything is going according to it anyway. I hope that knowing what the plan is will save you and those around you from a great deal of senseless aggravation.

Nutrition Economics: Principles and Policy Applications establishes the core criteria for consideration as new policies and regulations are developed, including application-based principles that ensure practical, effective implementation of policy. From the economic contribution of nutrition on quality of life, to the costs of malnutrition on society from both an individual and governmental level, this book guides the reader through the factors that can determine the success or failure of a nutrition policy. Written by an expert in policy development, and incorporating an encompassing view of the factors that impact nutrition from an economic standpoint (and their resulting effects), this book is unique in its focus on guiding other professionals and those in advanced stages of study to important considerations for correct policy modeling and evaluation. As creating policy without a comprehensive understanding of the relevant contributing factors that lead to failure is not an option, this book provides a timely reference. Connects the direct and indirect impacts of economic policy on nutritional status Provides practical insights into the analysis of nutrition policies and programs that will produce meaningful results Presents a hands-on approach on how to apply economic theory to the design of nutritional policies and programs

To most people paying attention to the collision between industrial society and the hard limits of a finite planet, it's clear that things are going very, very wrong. We no longer have unlimited time and resources to deal with the crises that define our future, and the options are limited to the tools we have on hand right now. This book is about one very powerful option: deliberate technological regression. Technological regression isn't about 'going back,' it's about using the past as a resource to meet the needs of the present. It starts from the recognition that older technologies generally use fewer resources and cost less than modern equivalents, and it embraces the heresy of technological choice, our ability to choose or refuse the technologies pushed by corporate interests. People are already ditching smartphones in favor of 'dumb phones' and land lines and eBook sales are declining, while printed books rebound. Clear signs among many that blind faith in progress is faltering and opening up the possibility that the best way forward may well involve going back. A must-read for anyone willing to think the unthinkable and embrace the possibilities of a retro future. John Michael Greer, one of the most influential authors exploring the future of industrial society, writes the widely cited blog The Archdruid Report. He has authored more than forty books including The Long Descent and Dark Age America. He lives in Cumberland, MD, an old mill town in the Appalachians, with his wife Sara.
