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?
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.
