CAUSES TV: The Post Oil City

Although the Post-Oil City exhibit has ended its tour on UDC's campus, you can still learn about the city of the future. Whether or not you attended the visiting exhibit and dialogue workshops and panels, revisit the feasibility and functionality of the future city with this special Post-Oil episode of CAUSES TV.

Post-Oil City explored whether cities could function in a world without oil. In this episode, Dr. Sabine O'Hara is joined by Dr. Peter Voit, President of Transsolar Inc. New York and Transsolar Energietchnik Gmbh in Stuttgart, Germany, and Prof. Thomas Kakovitch, Environmental Science Professor here at UDC. Together, they discuss whether cities will be able to function without fossil fuels such as oil, or if it will be necessary for cities to deliberately wean themselves from oil even before it runs out.
