Rolling Stone has a great new interview with legendary singer James Taylor about his new album Covers, his desire to go local in the face of rising energy prices, and why society may only become sustainable after a serious collapse. Here are some highlights:

On how rising energy has made him prepare for a more local existence:

“I have the sense that energy will become more and more expensive, and people will need to exist in a more local way,” he says. “And I feel sort of like a citizen of New England. I like living here and working here, so it may just be that my efforts are more and more sort of locally focused as time goes by.”

On having children making him more mindful of the need for a sustainable future:

“When you have young kids, you sort of re-up your commitment to the future. And I can’t seem to stop thinking about sustainability and about human activity on the Earth and whether or not what we’re doing can continue. It can’t. The thing I fear is that we’ll have a collapse — and that will finally get people’s attention.”
