Our 'civilization' faces an Energy Crisis of megawatt proportions, which threatens to bring an end to our brief joyride. The dependence on fossil fuels has put the world on a one-way track to collapse.

It falls to Robert Foster to bring this topic back to the forefront of our consciousness, where he conducts an incisive analysis of the situation to see what solutions are out there to deal with peak energy. Calling on representatives from the world’s superpowers, Foster addresses modern society’s addiction to oil and the proposed solutions to avoid energy meltdown.

Renaissance astronomer and mathematician Nicolaus Copernicus also makes an appearance, calling on world powers to change their outmoded approach to energy and look to the sun for inspiration.
