Many posts on this blog have been devoted to the holistic analysis of the converging crises of climate change, peak oil and financial instability. The Crisis of Civilization is a thought-provoking documentary in this vein, investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system. The documentary is based on the book A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization by Dr Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed, head of the London-based Institute for Policy Research & Development.
