After a screening of COLLAPSE at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Watch it live here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/collapsenet , Friday March 26th (12:30 PM, PDT, 3:30 PM EDT, 7:30 GMT) Note: The film will not be live-streamed, just the Q&As following, which are expected to last 45 minutes to one hour.
Goldsmiths College, University of London is proud to have the first-ever UK screening of the critically-acclaimed Bluemark Films’ documentary “Collapse” followed by a live Q&A with the film’s only subject Mike Ruppert. While the collapse of human industrial civilization and the subject of Peak Oil were either unthinkable or unknown to most a year ago, they seem front and center these days. Ruppert has an estimated 80% accuracy rate in economic, political and energy predictions over a decade of investigative journalism. He accurately and precisely predicted the crash of 2008 for years. Now he predicts that as much as two thirds of the human race may perish in the next five to ten as food disappears and lights go out around the world.
More than half of the predictions Ruppert made in the film – which finished shooting in June 2009 – have already come true. That will make you seriously ponder the other dire predictions he made in the film. Ruppert has authored two books, one of which (“Crossing the Rubicon”) is in the Harvard Business School library. His critically acclaimed new book “Confronting Collapse” was the foundation for the film. (Available through Amazon.com in the US and UK)
