Brace for Impact Thomas Lewis talked about his book Brace for Impact: Surviving the Crash of the Industrial Age by Sustainable Living (Outskirts Press; October 9, 2009). In his book he analyzes the gathering threats to society’s life-support systems such as power, food, and water, and the inability of the political and economic institutions to preserve them. He examines the inter-related systems of industrial society and the economies of scale that lead to a concentration of risk. He advises that individual families and communities can weather the collapse through sustainable living.

He was interviewed by the C-SPAN Bus crew at Frostburg State University. The date of the interview is not known. close
