The Advocates for Social Justice Film Project is pleased to present this important documentary as the 4th film in our Environmental Justice/ Climate Change series. We are a society addicted to oil. The 2004 documentary, The End of Suburbia, tells us everything we need to know about our addictions to fossil fuels: the history, the science, the economics and politics, the implications, and the alternatives. This film explores the intertwining histories of the energy industry and the suburbs which emerged after WWII enabled by the rapid growth of the automobile industry. The End of Suburbia is a well-crafted work with engaging and frank discussions that may change our understandings of the future. Internationally known experts include Richard Heinberg of the Post Carbon Institute here in Santa Rosa. Director: Gregory Greene.
Discussion as always follows viewing of the film. Please bring whatever you wish to eat. We will provide snacks, not lunch.
