Back in 1975, Ernest Callenbach wrote a little book which set the agenda for many ecology activists for the next 30 years, including the Green party in Germany. Ecotopia is well worth re-reading. The journalist William Weston goes to the west coast, where several states have seceded from the United States to form a sustainable community. I did not know about this book during the 1970s while I was writing about the Fairall community in the second volume of Frameshifts, so it is of interest to compare notes, but I will leave that to readers.
