    1. This is actually more of a favorite read, and more of a political template, than the original "sequel" Ecotopia.The events leading up to secession of CA/OR/WA, with foundations for the political party which ring *oddly* similar to events in California more recently (federal vs. regional).Great unschooling themes with a narrative mostly told as a coming of age story for a teenage girl / scientific prodigy growing up in Bolinas and discovering a way to take down Big Oil.


    2. I wish we lived in Ecotopia.It's important that books like this exist. You won't find many books that attempt to write a utopia that not only could exist, but that doesn't end in ruin. Yes, it's idealistic, yes it's got a late 70's hippie tinge at times, but having an ecologically, biologically based society over a profit-driven and hierarchical one just makes sense. It's not that radical of an idea really. Society at large just has too many myths of power and profit and progress to overcome. I' [...]


    3. This book is an interesting mix of foresight and hindsight, reading this almost 30 years after it was written. Having been born after it was written, I don't have a good sense of how much of this is true, and how much was speculation. Things certainly aren't as grim as they predicted - yet. But it could get that way, just as it could get better in ways they predicted as well. I doubt that the northwest will secede from the rest of the nation, but if it does, I'm glad I live here. :) The nicest p [...]


    4. Ecotopia is the name of that country. The US didn't want to dependant of ecotopia so they did everything such as millitary way to Ecotopia but they faild. After 20 years, William Western visited to Ecotopia by frist american. This is book's story is like his experience while he is staying in Ecotopia. After his work in Ecotopia, he decided to not go back to America but stay and keep his friendship and love. Also, he said that we should try to immitate that mind of Ecotopia for our future. I woul [...]



    5. This book has flaws and faults, sure, and it's definitely a produce of the era it was written, but the message at the heart of it is still incredibly relevant. Let's talk about the two most obvious issues first: 1) The prose is certainly not narrative-friendly. I could probably only name a few of the many people mentioned and give defining details about even less. The writing is dense and information-packed; it talks about science and politics and situations, and the people are simply another to [...]


    6. Partner book to his "Ecotopica". Better in some ways, but mostly more-of-the-same in too many ways. Daydream fulfillment to such an implausible extent that it gets tiresome. The problems of the time, as bad as they were, didn't signal the end of the world, much to many liberals' surprise.The only detail I can clearly recall is that some fellow invents a solar cell that can be made in a backyard kiln but has astonishing efficiency; enough that petroleum can be dispensed with, and it can be made b [...]


    7. A great little read. This is a fictionalized history of the events leading up to the secession of Northern California, Oregon and Washington to form a steady-state, environmentalist nation of Ecotopia along the Pacific Coast of the United States. In 1975, Callenbach had published a utopian novel called Ecotopia about the events; EE is its prequel, published in 1981. Discussed how a teenage girl finds an easy way to generate electricity cheaply from seawater in a solar cell. and how the baddies o [...]


    8. Thoughtful, imaginative sequel to Ecotopia, by Ernest Callenbach, this book offers a nicely woven story on how to change your world. Ecotopia, written in the 70s amidst a political storm of environmental change, is as Callenbach confesses in Emerging, a quick pop book written by an activist author. Emerging, on the other hand, pieces together events laid out in the original. It shows how the residents of the Northern West Coast got mad about current politics, and how they constructively dealt wi [...]


    9. 70s environmentalism wish-fulfillment in all of its decentralized, self-reliant, righteous and crunchy glory. It's much less entertaining than Ecotopia due to all-around boring writing and a plot that skips around far too often. But Callenbach's enthusiasm is infectious, the characters are generally likable and the book gets my west coast jingoism going. Modern environmentalism as a movement could use more of this old-school environmentalism, especially the DIY and local action mindset. Cascadia [...]


    10. I had to keep looking back to see when this book was published! A wonderful commentary on the energy crisis of the 1980s and completely applicable to today. A story of energy moguls trying to secure their control on the American economy and a bright student who cracks the code to photovoltaic cells and beats corporations to releasing the product into public domain. Definitely a must-read for the eco-conscious looking for something positive to think about.


    11. Ecotopia was a good read especially if you are someone who cares about the environment and human rights. At times it read more like a newspaper than an actual novel. Overall, it was revealing in explaining the ways in which our system of consumption is doing harm to the environment. A great deal of the story line bears truth in what is going on today.


    12. Just re-read this right after re-reading Ecotopia. Oldie but a goody. Again, mostly for its prescience on what we do today that was considered radical in the book.The 'big corporation' warfare bias got a bit too old, though.


    13. Environmental SocietyThe Northwest US cuts all ties from the US, shuts its borders, and creates its own country. 10 years later a reporter from the US is let in and discovers how Ecotopia works. I loved it.





    14. This book is hopeful, to me, about future solutions. Read it and be inspired! And it is a great story! Cool girl, scientist character.



    15. Life affirming antidote to the Bush years; a blueprint for sanity. A refuge for blue-state secessionists ( ya, that's me).
