In a single day without trucks in the United States - everything we rely on - food, water, utilities, clothing, hospitals and emergency services - would either fall off a cliff or disappear completely. In this segment of "The Oil Alarm," we explore our life-and-death relationship with gasoline, diesel and trucks.
Look for new Oil Alarm videos every week until Christmas/winter holidays 2015.
Get a sneak preview of the short animated film "The Oil Alarm," by Liam Scheff in cooperation with the Heal The Planet Foundation, animated by Eric Rogerson.
This 17 minute film shows us in clever graphics and simple, clear terms where we are in our use and misuse of oil, and how impending oil decline will affect us right where we live - especially at the grocery store.
Join the discussion about securing local food sources, building resilient food networks and ensuring your safety in the upcoming crisis.
How Secure Is Our Food Supply?
And What Does Crude Oil Have To Do With Growing Food?
• What will you do when trucks stop running? • When grocery stores go empty? • When food runs low - or runs out?
How will high gas prices and food shortages effect YOU?
Come with me as I explore the fate and habits of humanity.
In a short period of time of watching these videos, your observation skills will be sharpened and your observations of humanity will be more penetrating and acute. By elucidating a very few but powerful habits of the species that we are, you’ll begin to see us clearly, separated from the confounding myths and stories we’ve been fed our whole lives long.
These videos and articles will present to you, bit by bit, a philosophy of the species that I hope will be:
1. Useful to you and help you survive the changing economic environment
2. Informative and illusion-dispelling, so that you can see what is, instead of what you’ve been programmed to see.
"Official stories exist to protect officials." With the opening line as our guide, we pry open the vault of "official-dom" and see what lies beneath. Drawing information from 10 years of investigative journalism, Liam invites you to join the hunt for the details that lie just beneath the surface.
In this heavily-researched but irreverent book, we'll look under the rocks and stones of our culture: From CIA and JFK, to 9/11 and Shakespeare; from Vaccination to HIV to Big Bang theory, and more. Think of it as a corrective textbook to all the stories (and lies) we were told in school. We're drilling to the core of the gooey, religious center of science.
We're going to find out what's real, what's true, and what's just an "official story." Did Shakespeare write Shakespeare? Is HIV the cause of AIDS? Do vaccinations save lives? Did the Big Bang really happen? Is the Earth growing? Did a lone gunman kill JFK? Is America fighting for democracy around the world? Was 9/11 an intelligence failure -- or a success? Does the polio virus cause polio? Do HPV shots protect girls from cancer? Did Darwin get evolution right? What is in outer space?
