With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, "The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream" explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary. What does Oil Peak mean for North America? As energy prices skyrocket in the coming years, how will the sprawling populations of suburbia react to the collapse of their dream? Are today’s suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid The End of Suburbia?
The film will be followed by an open discussion led by David Room, Communications Director for the Post Carbon Institute.
