OK, I'm awake now!, April 16 2007
I saw this film and found it informative, intelligent, and credible. I have no idea why the first reviewer was so negative.
First, this is a documentary about a serious problem that is just beginning to poke its head out and get some exposure. Unfortunately, once the energy depletion problem becomes mainstream it will likely be waaaay too late to do much about it, and millions will suffer.
The global warming crisis is probably the most pressing long-term challenge for humanity. But depletion of affordable energy supplies is by far the most pressing short-term crisis, especially for the west. The Producers of this film did an excellent job of putting together interviews with dozens of credible experts around the world to clearly demonstrate that affordable oil is very soon to be history, and the negative impacts on the global economy (and everyone's lives) is going to be very significant.
People who see this film now will have a chance to position themselves for a future where many will be unable to cope. I strongly recommend you see it.
