"JUST VIEWS" Free Film Viewing and Discussion Program
The DuPage Peace through Justice Coalition & Sierra Club River Prairie Group present a Just Views program, at the DuPage Unitarian Church.
Friday, February 11, 2011 at 7:20 pm: "Running Out of Oil"
The documentary film Blind Spot, directed by Adolfo Doring, probes the current oil and energy crisis which we are facing. Through wishful thinking, indulgence, neglect, and/or ignorance, we have put ourselves at a crossroad and face future environmental and economic collapse. US fossil fuel production has declined and financial and environmental costs to extract oil have increased. This trend is occurring and impacting the world as a whole. Our film features interviews with leading scientists, economists, and environmental advocates. These experts challenge us to actively seek out energy alternatives other than fossil fuels and to transition to a slower-paced, low-energy, sustainable society. For more information and to purchase the dvd, the website is www.blindspotdoc.com.
Resource persons joining us for the viewing and discussion following include Issam Dairanieh, alternative energy sources scientist with a major international petroleum energy corporation, Lonnie Morris, Executive Chair of the Sierra Club - DuPage County River Prairie Group, and Mike Durschmid and associates, activists for climate justice dealing with fossil fuels. All points of view and active audience participation are welcome.
