Eco-Movie Night - November

Houston, We Have a Problem
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Cheap Energy

Event: Saturday, November 13 at 7:00pm

Step inside the energy capital of the world to hear the truth about oil, straight from the hearts of the Texas oilmen themselves. See decades of American presidents who have warned against the dependence on foreign oil, and how the U.S. Energy Policy has always been a strategy of defense, not offense.

Today, in the midst of Global Warming and Peak Oil, the world’s energy demand is skyrocketing. Aggressive strategies for securing crude oil now go to the highest bidder or the biggest bully. Hear the confessions of oilmen, who work in the trenches every day, scrambling to feed America’s ferocious appetite. Even they know that being addicted to cheap oil is the drug that will be the nation’s downfall.

The world is moving fast, and the country that is the most energy-independent will lead the 21st century. As America’s new administration faces the standard government gridlock on these issues, both Wall Street and Main Street are rallying to build a clean-energy economy. See new forms of Wildcatting in renewable energy and algae fuel production. Houston, We Have a Problem makes it crystal clear that we must embrace all forms of alternative energy in order to save the planet and ourselves. (2009, 85 minutes)

Followed by discussion. Donations welcome.
