End of Suburbia and Matthew Simmons
Wednesday, September 14, 7pm, at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston
Synopsis of the movie: Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. But as we enter the 21st century, serious questions are beginning to emerge about the sustainability of this way of life. With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, the End of Suburbia explores the American way of life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era, as global demand for fossil fuels begins to outstrip supply. World Oil Peak and the inevitable decline of fossil fuels are upon us, say some experts in this documentary.
Matthew Simmons, who is interviewed in the documentary, is the CEO of the world's largest Energy Investment Bank, Simmons & Co. International, with clients including Halliburton and the World Bank. Simmons is a also a member of the US Council on Foreign Relations and the National Petroleum Council's Natural Gas Task Force and, as such, has contributed "insider" perspective and hard facts to the study of Peak Oil and its effects.
Mr. Simmons will be available to answer questions after the screening of the End of Suburbia on Wednesday, September 14, 7pm at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet at Main Street.
