If you grimace at the prices every time you fill your car’s gas tank and hold your breath waiting for the prices to come back down, you may never get that next breath. “The times they are a-changin’.”
It may not be the end of the world, but it is the end of an era of cheap and abundant energy. The End of Suburbia is the title of a film sponsored by the Post Carbon Institute, to be screened Wednesday, June 14, 7:30 PM at Hillside Community Church, 1422 Navellier Street in El Cerrito. Subtitled “The Depletion of Oil and the Collapse of the American Dream”, this 2003 Canadian documentary makes it clear that radical changes are inevitably coming to the pattern of American life.
After decades of promoting economic globalization, the time has come to think in terms of economic localization. While the coming changes will disrupt many parts of our lives, change also ushers in an era of new opportunities – opportunities to rethink and change our concepts of energy, ecology, consumption, sustainable economics and community preparedness.
Many, many grassworks organizations are at work to guide us into this brave new world. Hillside Community Church intends to become a hub for these groups – a center for education, resources and activities in El Cerrito, Contra Costa County and the East Bay – in order to keep our communities healthy and vibrant.
We hope you will join is for this important event. A contribution of $5 at the door is requested but not required.
