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.
