“Past Peak Oil, Travelling Towards Transition”
Anita Sanchez is an environmentalist and a “designer of visions” (my phrase, not hers). She creates what she calls “eco animations.”
The following short animation (see video below) superimposes a piece of the history of industrialization on the likely peak oil timeline (where peak occurs at least by mid 21st century).
The beauty of her work is that it looks beyond the civilizational dislocation of peak oil to what may lie beyond (if we are wise) … a sustainable world economic system.
In her title, she alludes to the Transition Movement, a rapidly growing worldwide network of “transition towns,” towns that are working explicitly towards energy independence and “socioeconomic localization.”
