Richard Manning on the Green Revolution and the End of Cheap Oil


Published on Sep 7, 2011

A short clip from our 2005 interview with Richard Manning, author of “Grassland” (1997), “Against The Grain: How Agriculture Has Hijacked Civilization” (2004), and “Rewilding the West: Restoration in a Prairie Landscape” (2009).

This is raw footage from the feature length documentary, What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire, produced by Sally Erickson and Timothy Scott Bennett. Please visit to purchase a copy and support the filmmakers. And visit to learn about Bennett’s new novel, All of the Above. Thanks!
