Sprawling from Grace; Driven to Madness (2008)

Only available in Canada, United States

Americans have been lulled into a false sense of security by cheap energy that has allowed us to spread endlessly into our landscape. This feature-length documentary explores the ravages of American suburban sprawl and what America has lost as a result. We face great perils if we don't change the way in which we build our cities.

With the demand for oil outpacing the Earth's ability to supply it, the suburban living arrangement is beginning to fail. As the distances grow between work and home we have become trapped behind the wheels of our automobiles. America's love affair with the automobile is unsustainable and a wake-up call is coming.

And it is very comical to see Bush offered up as the paragon of delusional green thinking when Obama increased it to another order of magnitude.
