Ecotopia by Ernest Callenbach
“Writer of 1970s ‘Ecotopia’ Makes a Comeback in the Green Era” by Anita Weier:
In the 1975 cult environmental novel “Ecotopia,” Washington, Oregon and Northern California secede from the United States in the midst of a global financial crisis. Author Ernest Callenbach creates a sustainable society where recycling is required, food wastes are turned into organic fertilizer, and most energy comes from solar, sea, wind and geothermal power.
