The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

A look at how Cuba transitioned from a highly industrial society to a more sustainable one, having lost access to Soviet oil in the 1990s. This is a story of the Cuban people's ingenuity and triumph over adversity - through cooperation, conservation and community; a valuble look at addressing the challenge of reducing our energy use and living in a sustainable environment.
