Here is the start of the list of documentaries and books that I have seen and read that I recommend.  They all add to the vital information that everyone needs to know and share in order to make our lives sustainable on the Planet.  I will be adding more in the weeks to come.  I hope they help you understand what we are up against.  I know they helped me.


Economics of Happiness:  This documentary has such a broad, far reaching vision.  I could relate to it so much when I first saw it.  Not only does it address climate change, but, also our lifestyles and the affect it has on the Planet.

Gasland and Gasland 2:  Josh Fox does an excellent job of informing us about the horrific process of fracking to get natural gas and oil out of shale.

How Cuba Survived Peak Oil:  What a success story in the face of peak oil in Cuba.  We all can learn a tremendous lesson here.

Bag It:  Just when you think you know all that we are confronted with, there is this film on plastic.

No Impact Man:  A great documentary by Colin Beavan and his experiment to live without as many fossil fuels as possible for a year.  Highly recommended.

Blue Gold:  This is one of many documentaries on water.  I think this is one of the best.

Collapse:  The film looks at other civilizations and at what we are up against when it comes to resources and climate change.
