Industrial Oz explores CEOs' and politicians' Titanic arrogance in the face of human-caused climate destruction. This book focuses on the ways of the Tao instead of the Dow. Other themes include human-caused extinction, rising seas, social collapse and reinvention, a Hopi elder's prophecy, loss of rainforest, oil drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, historical perspective, disappearing sea stars, public apathy, wilderness preservation, challenge of nuclear waste and bombs, mentoring, lack of parenting, melting glaciers, Deepwater Horizon lies, indigenous wisdom, Federal Reserve and banking charades, Greek and Wisconsin austerity, modern wars, Enron deregulation, immigration, PTSD, inherited entitlement, "cell towers as brain forks," being rooted in place, GMO "Octomato Nightmare," drone menace -- in short, what the corporate 24/7 distraction machine isn't "counting on you waking up [to,] ever."

About the Author:

Scott T. Starbuck was a Friends of William Stafford Scholar at the "Speak Truth to Power" Fellowship of Reconciliation Seabeck Conference in 2014, a 2013 Artsmith Fellow on Orcas Island, and writer-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. His poetry focuses on the clash between ancient sustaining forces like wild salmon rivers and modern industry and industrial livelihood. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon, and San Diego, where he teaches creative writing, world literature, and English. He hikes Oregon and Washington coasts documenting pristine aspects of wilderness as well as our culture’s desecration of ecological communities. 30% of the author's royalty will be donated to 350.org.

Review:

"We've started to see poetry and music and art emerge that challenge this deepest question.  It's crucial because we don't just need the side of the human brain that understands pie charts and bar graphs engaged in this fight -- we need the whole brain and the whole heart.  Industrial Oz is a rousing,needling, haunting case in point."  
-- Bill McKibben,  author of The End of Nature

"Industrial Oz may just be the most cogent and sustained collection of quality eco-activist poetry ever written in this culture, this country." Thomas Rain Crowe, Publisher of New Native Press 
"'Are you really awake?' asks a bumper sticker in an early poem. After reading these poems, you will be." Marybeth Holleman,  author of The Heart of the Sound

About Starbuck's Ecopoetry:
"Starbuck brings the personal and the political quickly together as in his short poem about the melting ice caps, entitled 'How It Is.' The poem begins: 'Sometimes you forget Greenland exists/ like two pages stuck together in a novel . . . . Then it melts and Holland disappears.'" - Bryan R. Monte, Amsterdam Quarterly
"Kairos ,  sudden insight,  grabs reader and writer . . . . It gifts poet Scott Starbuck with lightning-quick vision." Sandra Alcosser, author of Except by Nature and A Fish to Feed All Hunger
