Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash, produced and directed by award-winning European journalists and filmmakers Basil Gelpke and Ray McCormack, tells the story of how our civilization's addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology. The film features conversations with some of the world's top experts and delivers a startling, but logical conclusion. With world oil production expected to peak by 2015, our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled. Aired on the Sundance Channel, the film has won many international awards. www.oilcrashmovie.com
A new report from Sierra Club NYC explains that preparing for higher energy prices will step up our response to climate change. It calls for city officials form an energy volatility task force, to prepare for higher fuel prices - as has been done already in San Francisco and Portland, OR. It also sets out recommendations to enhance NYC's sustainability initiatives in transportation, buildings, agriculture and electricity generation.
