Y3K is a look back from the the year 2999 to the world's looming social/ecological disaster - Entropy Gaia, the breakdown of all world systems - through the eyes of latter day environmentalists. It describes a world brought to its knees by indifference to the planet's health and welfare, and the new ecotopian world that develops out of its ashes. Y3K conjures up a view of how humanity can live lightly on the earth in a way that's no less fulfilling than the image we now have of what it takes to be happy. Y3K is a road novel that nearly circles the world through many unique urban and communal settings. It is a novel of activism, of organizing and demonstrating, since even in a future ecotopia there will be those who wish to revert to the exploitation of the past (today). Y3K is a journey into the mind. It is a primer of spirituality and mysticism. Y3K is designed to open the reader's eyes to the many possibilities of the future, both near term and long. It's a fun ride; welcome aboard.
