Hoping we manage to avoid the “darkest hour” he envisions, he describes fearsome parallels between the Weimar Republic of the late ’20s and early ’30s to the United States of today. Fast-forwarding to the future, he also explores a few of the things the mining industry might do to start making itself invisible in terms of environmental impact.
