Plot Summary
Since the 1850s, mankind has become increasingly dependent on petroleum. This documentary explores the history and ramifications of that dependence. Through a series of interviews, it explains the concept of "peak oil" and traces often surprising connections between our consumption of fossil fuels and global problems such as poverty, famine and war. Though offering a bleak prognosis about the sustainability of our current lifestyle, it also provides suggestions for a more hopeful future.
