How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

by The Community Solution



When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba's economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half and food imports cut by 80 percent, people were desperate.

In the context of global Peak Oil worries, Cuba is an inspiring vision of hope.
