“Gasland” was a winner at last year’s Sundance Film Festival and now has been nominated for an Academy Award.  Needless to say the gas industry is furious and is cranking out critical propaganda at a great rate.  You owe it to yourself and to your community wherever you live to see this film.  Here’s a trailer.

How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

Filed under: economics, films — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 7:23 am

In 1990, when the Soviet Union collapsed, their shipments of oil to Cuba abruptly ended, and Cuba faced a “peak oil” situation similar to what we will soon face.  “The Power of Community,” a documentary about how the Cuban people and the Castro government coped was shown last night at a Transition Town meeting in Philadelphia.  This website will tell you more about this incredible film (which can be purchased at a very low price from Amazon).  Everyone should see it.
