This amazing, eye-opening, and deeply disturbing film is simply the clearest exposition of peak oil and its far-reaching consequences. It features interviews with leading experts in a variety of related fields. It’s a sobering account of our dependence on ancient sunlight to power industrial civilization and the consequences we face as we top over the global oil production peak and enter the irreversible depletion phase. The impact of peak oil has been profound. The film focuses on the relationship between the size of the human population and the increasingly intensive extraction of resources. The concept of peak oil itself is not fully expanded in the film until after an array of economic, political, social, and economic threads are systematically explored — then the full impact of peak oil then becomes frighteningly clear.
