Local Solutions to Global Problems and Post Carbon Santa Cruz present the DVD "The History of Oil" with comedian Robert Newman followed by a presentation/talk by local solar educator and expert Joe Jordon. Conversation to follow.

Robert Newman gets to grips with the wars and politics of the last hundred years - but rather than adhering to the history we were fed at school, the places oil centre stage as the cause of all commotion. This innovative history programme is based around Robert Newman's stand-up act and supported by resourceful archive sequences and stills with satirical impersonations of historical figures from Mayan priests to Archduke Ferdinand. Quirky details such as a bicycle powered street lamp on the stage brings home the pertinent question of just how we are going to survive when the world's oil supplies are finally exhausted. http://www.robnewman.com/news.html

Joe Jordon is Director of Sky Power Institute. The Sky Power Mission: helping to sustain our planetary resources by promoting solar energy research, development, education and practice at home, and in schools, organizations and communities around the Earth.
