...What A Way To Go
Life At The End Of Empire
A middle class white guy comes to grips with Peak Oil, Climate
Change, Mass Extinction, Population Overshoot and the demise of the
American Lifestyle.
What is it doing to us as thoughtful human beings as we face the overwhelming challenges of:

* Peaking fossil fuel flow rates?
* Critically degraded ecosystems?
* A changing climate?
* An exploding global population?
* Teetering global economies?
* An unstable political climate?

And what is it doing to the rest of the life on this planet?

Featuring interviews with Daniel Quinn, Derrick Jensen, Jerry Mander, Chellis Glendinning, Richard Heinberg, Thomas Berry, William Catton, Ran Prieur and Richard Manning, What a Way to Go looks at the current global situation and asks the most important questions of all:

* How did we get here?
* Why do we keep destroying the planet?
* What do we truly want?
* Can we find a vision that will empower us to do what is
necessary to survive, and even thrive, in the coming decades?

Interesting. A little bit annoying (author's voice + WASPy obsession with worry). Overall a good documentary.

I think it's caused by the reflection of the suns rays off the pervasive tin foil hats worn by a small faction living in the US.

When will we start looking at the data, CO2 does not drive climate change.
All climate data lags CO2 by 800 years.

Africa has vast coal reserves. Do we refuse development of a continent on the strength of continued technological imperialism.

I am all for sustainability. Western lifestyles need to accept that western lifestyle is based on third world exploitation of resource's.

The last 10000 years is a snap shot in biological time. What! you think there are guarantees. 0 is the answer, climate is NOT a constant.

CO2 does not drive climate change.
Solar activity does.
