         THE "ENERGY CRISIS" -MYTH AND REALITY
        WIN : There has been a great deal of public skepticis m
                                                                                AN INTERVIEW WITH MURRAY BO0KCHI N
        about the reality—or at least, the causes—of the cur -
        rent "energy crisis ." Do you think this "crisis" is a s            WIN : Granted that we do need a rational society ,
        serious as we are being told and that the explanation s             what are the myths that enter into the "energy crisis" ?
        for it are ' valid ?                                                M.B. : First of all, we have not read . Armageddon.
        Murray Bookchin : If, by a crisis, one means a definite            There is no absolute shortage of even conventiona l
        shortage of petroleum, natural gas, and coal that i s              sources of energy and there need not be, even if we
        available to the public for immediate consumption —                 use energy at present growth rates . How long thi s
        yes, such a shortage exists . But as to whether such a             situation could last—whether for two or more genera-
        shortage has to exist and whether we are literally u p             tions—is difficult to predict. But the oil and natura l
        against the wall in terms of exhausting our conven-                gas, not to speak of coal, are there in the ground . I n
        tional energy resources, the information that is being             this sense, we are not up against the wall in terms o f
        given to the public by the administration and the oi l             conventional, even domestic, reserves of energy .
        companies is grossly misleading : The impression i s                  Secondly, we have far more lead time for choosin g
        being created that we have reached Armageddon so                  and developing ecological energy patterns than we ar e
        far as these resources are concerned—that we have                  led to believe . Even if one operates within the param-
        finally begun to "run out" of oil, and natural gas re-            eters of a fairly centralized large-scale energy struc -
        serves—an impression that is simply false .                       ture, say with Aden and Marjorie Meinel's giant solar -
            I find myself in a peculiar position with regard t o          energy project (which I will touch upon later), w e
       the relationship between "natural resources" and hu-               could probably begin to shift over to solar generator s
        man needs . Our profit-oriented capitalistic society is           by the 1980s . We are not going to do much better b y
       based on production for the sake of production an d                opening the Alaskan north slope to oil production .
       consumption for the sake of consumption . This so-                 The prediction that Alaskan oil will begin to alleviat e
       ciety totally distorts our conception of needs. It' s              petroleum shortages by 1977 is probably hogwash .
       hardly necessary to stress that it would devour th e               The real figure is probably much closer to the 1980s —
       planet if it were permitted to operate indefinitely o n            and even then we can expect that 10% or less of th e
       its own . Not only does the society produce unend-                 petroleum needed to supply our energy needs at cur -
       ingly and waste materials unendingly—indeed delib-                 rent growth rates will be furnished by Alaskan oil .
       erately engineer its products into "obsolescence" —                This is not exactly an astronomical figure for rapin g
       but it has turned people into unending consumers o f               Alaska and the arctic regions .
       cheap and shoddy goods with infinite "wants" tha t                     Considering these two essential facts, we are bein g
       are themselves engineered by a rapacious mass media .              asked to commit ourselves to a staggering expansio n
       One of the most liberating developments initiated b y              of nuclear-energy plants, extensive offshore drilling ,
       a free ecological society would be for people to redis-            the reckless growth of strip-mining, and such idiocie s
       cover their real sense of need . The ancient Greeks,               as the production of oil from shale .
       for all their shortcomings, deliberately pared dow n
       their needs to free themselves for a more human an d
       spiritually fulfilling life . We, in the United States an d
       probably in western Europe, would have to do muc h
       the same simply for brute reasons of health . A size-
       able portion of the American population overcon-
       sumes and has been "educated" to overconsume .
       Such overconsumption of everything from energy t o
        junk food has been not only spiritually deadenin g
        but pathogenic so far as the body and environmen t
        are concerned .
            Petroleum, natural gas, and coal are finite resources .
        If we were to consume nothing but known domesti c
        reserves of oil at current rates, we would probably ru n
        out of oil in about 20 years ; give or take a few years,
        much the same is true for our domestic reserves o f
        natural gas. Coal, our most plentiful fossil fuel, woul d
        probably be used up in two or three centuries if w e
        tried to synthesize oil and natural gas from known re-
       serves a present growth rates. If our present 2 .6 tril-
        lion watt energy budget(to translate all of our energ y
        uses into electrical terms) expands as it has been doing ,
        we would have to find entirely new fuels—certainly ,
        non-fossil fuels—within the next three centuries . So,
        you see, we need a decisive refocusing on the issue o f
        needs, a resealing of needs to humanistic, meaningfu l
       dimensions. And I don't think we can achieve thi s
       goal without a fundamental change in society—a so-
       ciety that is no longer based on production for th e
       sake of production, but on a fundamental reworking
       of its social ends and a rediscovery of human needs .
                                                                           "Pollution is cleanliness . . . . Decay is progress . . . . Crime increase

     PLOWSHAR E
      Each year SPC's Plowshare Craftsfair & Sale seems t o
    become a more distinctive and enfoyable event . It ha s
    now become one of the very best qraftsfairs in this are a
    combining a subtle movement outreach and flavor wit h
    the practical conerns of supporting SPC and craftspeople .
    Of course it is the ideal place and time to buy handmade
    quality holiday gifts .
      SPC made about $500 in addition to $300 on our cal -
    endar, cards and literature . The people who made i t
    happen were : Diane Cass, Sally Brule', Ann & Ric k
    Hansen, Terri Gill, Barbara Murphy, Bob Nicholson,
    RoseAnn DeMaria and Debbie Burrows .

   SPC's first folk festival had some problems but one
of them wasn't the music . The 3 groups, Fennig's All -
Star String Band, Michael Cooney and Livia Drapkin &
Billy Vannever were different and very entertaining .
They all donated their time to SPC and seemed to reall y
enjoy the enthusiastic response of the 400 in atten-
dence . People are talking about another fest in th e
late spring . Are you interested ?
   SPC made between $5 & 6 hundred which was dis -
appointingly distant from the hoped-for $2000 . Bu t
the committee feels a second festival would be easie r
to promote because of the quality of the first "Carr y
It On" . Committee members were : Barbara Ellison.
Lila Walker, Susan Foody . David Easter. Sari Knopp.
Susan Watters, Bill McDowell (poster) . Alan Miller
and Jon & Laura Ripperman.
