description
Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia which promises a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too the suburban way of life has become embedded in the American consciousness.

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. But as we continue through the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. "The End of Suburbia" explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply.

World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us now, some scientists and policy makers argue in this documentary. 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?

OUR COMMENTS
Though there are no wars, blood or sad scenes in this movie, "The End of Suburbia" might be one of the scariest movies on this site. This is more than an American problem; it is a global problem. Though business interests, media and the government want us to not be concerned with oil exhaustion, it should not be dismissed that the region with the most oil, the Middle East, is strife with wars. A cynic would even blame the presence of oil in the region for the lack of democracy in the Middle East. On a domestic level the price of oil has more influence on the U.S. economy than is commonly believed and alternative energies are not currently advanced enough to fulfill its void.

The film does not delve into the Bush Doctrine, politics or geo political strategy but does give a good foundation to understand the importance of oil depletion, when it will occur and discusses a little of how we can help avert disaster before it?s too late. This film features some industry experts discussing the controversial issue of when will the world reach its peak in oil production in very practical terms.

In a world where everlasting decisions are based on short term business sense, this movie will help you understand one of mankind?s most formidable challenges.
