MICHAEL C. RUPPERT Web Streaming Q&A (http://mikeruppert.blogspot.com/2010/03/michael-c-ruppert-web-streaming-q.html)


MICHAEL C. RUPPERT in a Web Streaming Q&A Session after a screening of COLLAPSE at Goldsmith’s College, University of London – Watch it Live, Friday March 26th (12:30 PM, PDT, 3:30 PM EDT, 7:30 GMT)

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)

**** -- “Above all else see COLLAPSE. Above all else” – Roger Ebert, The Chicago Sun Times

CRITICS PICK! Shockingly persuasive… unexpectedly moving – Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times

From popcorn chompers such as 2012 to more cerebral fare like The Road, movie audiences are being offered multiple visions of the apocalypse these days. Collapse is hands-down the most chilling. – Jennie Punter, The Globe and Mail

“The Peak Oil/Sustainability movement easily numbers in the millions, if not tens of millions worldwide. The global response to the film has been overwhelming and it is apparent that all those who have been voices in the wilderness, predicting these events with accuracy and anguish for decades were right. – The U.K. is being ravaged worse than the U.S. thus far. But sadly, the real suffering has only just begun for us all. Lord Hunt knows it. He’s just called an emergency summit on Peak Oil because it cannot be hidden anymore. He knows there can be no recovery.” – Michael C. Ruppert.

This event is made possible by support from the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths and organized by PhD candidate in visual sociology, David Rose, Bluemark Films and Michael C. Ruppert.
