"Collapse" by Chris Smith. In a completely unrelated attempt to interview journalist Michael Ruppert for screenplay research, Chris Smith meets a man who is unlike any other. A man who has been predicting the crisis of peak oil and the hopeful rebirth of a new worldwide system of living.
With the protests in the Middle East heating up, oil prices skyrocketing again, and the world seeming more uncertain than ever, this man is a true prophet. Peak oil is a reality, and we need to figure out how we can build a post-carbon society.
I am already planning my post-carbon survival kit! It’s meager right now, but hopefully I have 5 more years before peak oil happens. Then I might just be able to survive.

"In an avant-garde soliloquy, investigative journalist Michael Ruppert details his unnerving theories about the inexorable link between energy depletion and the collapse of the economic system that supports the entire industrial world. Helmed by filmmaker Chris Smith (American Movie), Ruppert’s monologue explains how the lies and political propaganda fed to Americans by big business will eventually lead to human extinction."
