Ernest Callenbach Dies at 83

The author Ernest Callenbach has passed away at the age of 83. He was well-known in environmental circles for his 1975 novel Ecotopia in which the Northwest US seceded from the rest of the country to form its own ecologically conscious nation. While some elements of the novel are a bit dated today, he contemplated many ideas about bioregional habitation that inspired thousands of writers, activists, and residents to reconsider and reconfigure their lives to create more improved futures.
