Synopsis

Explores the interconnection between human domination of the planet and the discovery and use of oil. Exposed is our deep-rooted dependency on the availability of fossil fuel energy and examines the future implications of peak oil--the point in time when the amount of petroleum worldwide begins a steady, inexorable decline. Journeying from the West African delta region to the heart of the Amazon rainforest, from Washington to Shanghai, from early man to the unknown future, chronicled is the collision of our insatiable appetite for oil with the rights and livelihoods of indigenous cultures, other species and the planet itself.
