What could be done to bring energy production into line with the survival of life on this planet? This is both a political and a technology question, and both are discussed here by Janet Redman and the Old Mole's Bill Resnick. Redman is with the Institute for Policy Studies where she is co-director of the Sustainable Energy and Economy Network.
Featuring Chris Hedges and many others, the new film Capitalism Is the Crisis argues forcefully that the current financial crisis is not just a temporary glitch in capitalism, but is part of the way the system works. Movie Moles Frann Michel and Jan Haaken lay out the film's argument. But they also explain some of what the movie fails to explain about the history of capitalism and what it will take to end it. The film can be viewed on line here.
