Blind Spot – The Film

Blind Spot (2008)

Homepage . IMDb . MEF

Blind Spot is a documentary film that illustrates the current oil and energy crisis that our world is facing. Whatever measures of ignorance, greed, wishful thinking, we have put ourselves at a crossroads, which offer two paths with dire consequences. If we continue to burn fossil fuels we will choke the life out of the planet and if we don’t our way of life will collapse.

There is no panic in this film ….just an absolute and stark reality that we either choose to face or not.

But you will not see this film on network TV or just about nowhere else. It challenges too directly fundamental assumptions on which the continuance of our corporate economy and our consumer culture is based — in particular, the unquestioned assumption that growth is good, that “expansion is tantamount to progress.”

“Blind Spot” makes no attempt to soften or sweeten its message in order to make it palatable to a wider audience. The people interviewed are blunt about the seriousness of the problems we face: peak oil; climate change; population overshoot and a diminished environment.

Whatever temporary progress we make in curbing these problems is quickly nullified by a growing population and the fact that increased technological efficiency in the use of a resource tends to increase (rather than decrease) the rate at which that resource is consumed.

These problems have potentially catastrophic consequences for the entire human species; indeed, we run the risk that positive feedback loops will develop that take matters completely outside our control.

And we’ve largely squandered the last forty years, precious time that we desperately needed to plan for these imminent crises.
