The End of Suburbia?

Feeling uneasy of late? Like the American way of life is about to come crashing down like a house of cards because the world is running out of oil?
If you are seeking some confirmation for your anxiety, look no further than the Channing-Murray’s Social Justice Forum tomorrow night, which will be screening The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream. The documentary explores the American way of life and its prospects as we face the decline of fossil fuels.

The consequences of inaction in the face of this global crisis are enormous. What does Oil Peak mean for North America? As energy prices skyrocket in the coming years, how will the populations of suburbia react to the collapse of their dream? Are today’s suburbs destined to become the slums of tomorrow? And what can be done NOW, individually and collectively, to avoid The End of Suburbia ?

So, if you want to save Suburbia, or let Suburbia burn but save its inhabitants, join the discussion after the show. Sometimes they have free cookies.
