The stark reality of post-apocalyptic film locations

The recent movie, The Road, portrays an extremely powerful and emotional story, made even more so by the stark, post-apocalyptic scenery. But these were no movie sets – the landscapes portrayed in the movie were all real, shot on location in parts of Pittsburgh laid to waste by mining, Mount St. Helens, and New Orleans post-Katrina. It is frightening to realize how far along the path to a post-apocalyptic world we are.

    We have been living in a post-apocalyptic world since the dawn of agriculture 10,000 years ago. Only difference is the rate of degradation has sped up.
