The Rolling Blackout is a news outlet, a creative outlet, a place for research musings, think-pieces and opinions, a book and literature review bank, a database, and a place to get all the information you want on cities, energy and the environment.
This site grew out of a deep care for the ideals of democracy, environmental sustainability, and justice, and role of critical social theory in understanding existing urbanisms and advocating alternatives. It also is an appendage of a career in engineering disciplines, focused on understanding the underpinnings of our vast urban systems, energy, water, transport, etc.
In these pages and posts you will find short opinion pieces, links to other websites and guest posts, synopses and annotations of important readings, thought pieces on research, and a multitude of ruminations and musings. I invite discussion and comments.
