LSGP in collaroboration with Post Carbon Santa Cruz presents Free DVD showing with a follow up discussion: "The Power of Community – How Cuba Survived Peak Oil". The documentary was inspired when Faith Morgan and Pat Murphy took a trip to Cuba through Global Exchange in August, 2003. That year Pat had begun studying and speaking about worldwide peak oil production. In May Pat and Faith attended the second meeting of The Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas, a European group of oil geologists and scientists, which predicted that mankind was perilously close to having used up half of the world's oil resources. When they learned that Cuba underwent the loss of over half of its oil imports and survived, after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990, the couple wanted to see for themselves how Cuba had done this.

LOCAL SOLUTIONS TO GLOBAL PROBLEMS (LSGP) is a coalition of concerned citizens and advocacy groups who are finding ways to address the dual challenges of world-wide depletion of the fossil fuels (Peak Oil) and global warming/climate change. Scientific evidence tells us that these two related issues will be among the most pressing problems we face in the years ahead. While our leaders have been slow to acknowledge and take action on either of these issues, a grassroots movement has started throughout the country to promote choices for a more sustainable energy future. Many communities are working on adopting Peak Oil Resolutions in order to help guide local energy policy and educate the local population.
