The Post Carbon Institute recently released a 34-minute animated video that is well worth your time. After watching it, my prediction is that you will want to send a link to any friends of yours who might be unaware of the gravity of our situation. The producer of this video finally became so frustrated by having to repeatedly answer the same questions that he made the video so he could avoid this, and could instead simply show or send this video.
The video talks about, and links, resources, energy and power generation, food and water, exponential growth and its limits. It is very well done, and crystal clear, without ever becoming technical or confusing. The voice-over narrator has an Irish lilt but she is concise and easily understood. In scarcely more than a half hour, she provides an enormous amount of essential information about subjects that are of critical importance to the future of our civilization.
The title is There's No Tomorrow .
And here's a good companion video clip of Max Keiser interviewing futurist Dmitry Orlov, who says our political-economic system has been rigged so as to perpetuate and ever enlarge the financial system centered on Wall Street, but that this rigging takes place at the expense of every other aspect of our economy, and will do so for as long as possible -- which Dmitry says won't be for much longer.
US Economic Collapse on the Edge, with Max Keiser, here.
Links for both clips can be found at Dmitry's web site.
There you will also find a very perceptive essay on America's Unacknowledged Religion, an excerpt from which follows here:
