Out of the Wasteland by Paul Relis“Read Out of the Wasteland, and you may find the courage to extend and enrich the lives of your community as well. What you have and what you once dreamed of may come to seem like one and the same thing.”  —Pico Iyer

In Out of the Wasteland, founding Executive Director of the Community Environmental Council Paul Relis takes us on a journey of the environmental frontier, starting with the birth of environmentalism in Santa Barbara, into the intricate, obfuscated but all important world of government and policy, to important new environmental technologies that can, indeed, free us from this age of oil.
