300 years of fossil fuels in 300 seconds wins DoGooder nonprofit video award!


From Tod Brilliant of PCI:
Last week we asked for your help with the YouTube/See3 DoGooder Nonprofit Video Awards. Thousands of organizations participated and four were awarded the top prize. THANKS TO YOU and your support, Post Carbon Institute secured the Best Video in the Small Nonprofit category. For this we are grateful and proud.

The winning videos are posted here.

Fossil fuels have powered human growth and ingenuity for centuries. Now that we're reaching the end of cheap and abundant oil and coal supplies, we're in for an exciting ride. While there's a real risk that we'll fall off a cliff, there's still time to control our transition to a post-carbon future.

Written and narrated by PCI Senior Fellow Richard Heinberg.

Animated by the wonderful team at MONSTRO DESIGN.

Background beats ("Can I Kick It?") by A Tribe Called Quest.

The video has also been translated into Hungarian - and Portuguese.
