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.
