Low-Energy Lifestyles: Lessons from Cuba

Those of you that enjoyed our "The Era of Easy Oil is Over" post, might want to follow up with the clip below. It's a 45-minute presentation given at the Community Solution's 1st annual conference on peak oil and community solutions.

The clip summarises observations on how Cuba handled its own 'Peak Oil' crisis. When the Soviet bloc dismantled suddenly in 1989, Cuba had a sudden and dramatic immersion into a world without oil. What did they do? Watch the clip and find out!
