“Garbage Warrior” – Movie

Escape from Suburbia

 

Escape From Suburbia PosterLocation: Sandpoint Library
Start Time: 5:45 PM
Date: 2008-09-18, Thursday

Description: Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The END of SUBURBIA (shown previously) explored the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet enters the age of Peak Oil. In ESCAPE From SUBURBIA director Greg Greene once again takes us “through the looking glass” on a journey of discovery – a sobering yet vital and ultimately positive exploration of what the second half of the Oil Age has in store for us.
Through personal stories and interviews this films examines how declining world oil production has already begun to affect modern life in North America. Expert scientific opinion is balanced with “on the street” portraits from an emerging global movement of citizen’s groups who are confronting the challenges of Peak Oil in extraordinary ways.
The clock is ticking. ESCAPE From SUBURBIA asks the tough questions: Are we approaching Peak Oil now? What are the controversies surrounding our future energy options? Why are a growing number of specialists and citizens skeptical of these options? What are ordinary people across North America doing in their own communities to prepare for Peak Oil? And what will YOU do as energy prices skyrocket and the Oil Age draws to a close?
This movie shows a variety of inspiring options that individuals and communities can make in response to the changes in energy availability.
