Michael Webber’s “Energy at the Movies”

Michael Giberson

Michael Webber, mechanical engineer and Associate Director of the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Texas at Austin, provides a look at society’s changing relationship to energy as revealed in movies (and the occasional TV clip) in “Energy at the Movies.” At just over an hour and forty minutes, it takes a little commitment to get through, but if you are at all interested in the topic, you will probably find it worth the time.

The SXSW film festival included an hour-long panel discussion of “Energy at the Movies.” I haven’t watched it yet, so don’t vouch for it personally. If you enjoy “Energy at the Movies,” then the panel discussion seems an obvious next step.
