A must-see documentary: The End of Suburbia. This brilliant film presents a coherent and scary picture of how the current peak in oil production combined with the extravagence of North America’s vast urban sprawl and inefficient energy use will cause major social and economic challenges in the near future.

Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream. But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, 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.
