Energy Crossroads: A burning need to change course
 

THIS IS THE HOME DVD AND NOT THE ACADEMIC. As our global population and its appetite for energy rise drastically, resource depletion and global warming have become the most pressing issues facing humanity today.
Most experts agree that global peak oil production, when demand exceeds supply, will occur within the next 15 years and will drastically change the very fabric of our industrialized world.
As fossil fuels power every facet of the American economy, how can we avoid an energy crisis and a possible collapse of our economy? Today, China and India have aspirations to attain our western quality of life; but at the rate and the way we use the world's energy resources, their ambition will be physically impossible.
In addition to increasing geopolitical conflicts, the process of extracting and using these crucial resources is endangering the very own habitat that we depend on to prosper as a species - pushing the earth's climate and ecosystem to a point of no-return.
Scientists and experts agree that the use of renewable energy such as solar and wind power, coupled with higher efficiency and conservation, will be key factors in preserving our quality of life and paving the way to a sustainable world for our children.
Will America be up to the task as it consumes 25% of the world's energy, 85% of which comes from non-renewable fossil fuels?
This award-winning documentary exposes the problems associated with our energy consumption. It also offers concrete solutions for those who want to educate themselves and be part of the solutions in this decisive era. The film features passionate individuals, entrepreneurs, experts and scientists at the forefront of their field bringing legitimacy and expertise to the core message of the piece.
This DVD is for general audience and can NOT be used in an academic setting.

Tiroir A Films has just released a DVD for when End of Suburbia just won't do. Energy Crossroads does well what it sets out to do - providing Americans with an accurate, comprehensive picture of the two biggest crises of our era. I'll be loaning my copy out quite a bit.
- Bart Anderson co-editor of Energy Bulletin.

"You've probably seen Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Or perhaps you've seen Who Killed the Electric Car. Now you should put Energy Crossroads on your list".
- Green Energy News

"The movie is compelling and empowering, as it is one of the first to comprehensively cover the key aspects of the energy/environment/economy dilemma.
"Energy Crossroads" is a graphic tour de force that will compel you to share the experience."
- Morey Wolfson, MW Energy Solutions LLC

"...this is the DVD to give to friends and family who haven't yet caught on....it will soften them up and give them a clear snapshot of the energy present."
Mick Winter - Dry Dipstick

"I am grateful to the filmmaker for exposing the critical issues of energy and sustainability.
The film uses the best scientific arguments to construct a comprehensive expose about resource depletion, the waste of our primary resources and the necessity to achieve sustainability"
- Jerome Adnot, School of Mines of Paris, Energy Department

"Tiroir A Films produced an excellent film that provides a convincing description of the challenge without being so alarming that average people won't watch."
- Scott Pugh, ASPO-USA/Retired Naval Officer

"Recommended for public libraries wishing to build up their environmental media collections"
