A documentary film screening presented by Films for Action
7pm. Liberty Hall 644 Mass St. $3

CRUDE IMPACT is a powerful and timely story that deftly explores the interconnection between human domination of the planet and the discovery and use of oil. This documentary film exposes our deep-rooted dependency on the availability of fossil fuel energy and examines the future implications of peak oil — the point in time when the amount of petroleum worldwide begins a steady, inexorable decline. Journeying from the West African delta region to the heart of the Amazon rainforest, from Washington to Shanghai, from early man to the unknown future, CRUDE IMPACT chronicles the collision of our insatiable appetite for oil with the rights and livelihoods of indigenous cultures, other species and the planet itself. It is a thought-provoking story filled with discovery, sorrow, outrage, humor and ultimately, hope.

Do For Earth Day - Help Raise Awareness about Peak Oil:
Even with oil at $110/barrel, Peak Oil is still under the radar for most Americans. It's vitally important to spread the word, and this film screening is a great opportunity to raise awareness.

So in the words of Tyler Durden -- you have a new assignment:

Find 5 people who know nothing about Peak Oil and get them to come to the screening, preferably as far outside your circle as possible. Use the Peak Oil Primer http://www.energybulletin.net/primer.php for talking points. If you find 5 fairly quickly, try to find 15. : )

There is already a growing number of people in Lawrence that are aware of peak oil, and through our efforts with educational film screenings like these, we can inform another 2 to 400 people that can then join us in working towards individual, community, and city solutions. Let us know how it goes! : )
