A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash (2006)

Watch the Trailer
You'll Become An Expert On: Oil Dependence

We often pay lip service to the impending oil crisis in this country. It'd be difficult to find many outright fans of America's dependence on oil outside of the petroleum industry.

A Crude Awakening looks into the near future, when we will reach "peak oil," the point at which oil production will be at its height and all available oil resources will be tapped. The scarcity that will occur at such a point could have a disastrous impact on the world economy, particularly if we haven't properly investigated alternatives.

The lessons of this movie make us feel better about not being able to afford a car.
