A Crude Awakening - Waiheke

The New Zealand Herald and other popular media have made the link between the rising prices of food and the price of oil, but they have failed to highlight the link between the rising price of oil and the current geological realities of this valuable but finite resource. Transition Waiheke is offering a screening of this Crude Awakening, that came out in late 2006, when the oil price was spiking at the shockingly high price of $70/barrel! (it has been over $140/barrel in recent months). The film points out that new oil is not being made, discovery peaked a long time ago, and we are now using six barrels of oil for every new one that we discover. Times are a changing. » Read more

An Interview with Starhawk; sacred activism, collapse and the role of permaculture

from http://transitionculture.org/2008/07/23/an-interview-with-starhawk/

What do you see as being the main characteristics of the challenge we face at this moment?

I think the challenge we face at this moment is pretty simple. We just need to completely transform our economy, our technology, our system of agriculture, our food system and the governance systems that go with it, and we needed to have done this all 10 years ago! It’s easy... (laughs). » Read more

When: Monday 28th July, 7.00pm
Where: Kapiti Community Centre
15 Ngahina Street
