A shocking wake-up call that is set to do for energy what Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' did for the environment, 'A Crude Awakening' is a compelling, intelligent and urgent warning that the age of abundant oil is over. Featuring testimonies from the world's top experts, this startling documentary reaches an ominous yet logical conclusion the Earth's oil supplies are peaking and a crisis of global proportions looms. Even more alarmingly, industrial societies don't have any plans how to deal with the shortage, threatening the future of our post-industrialised fossil fuel-addicted civilization with disaster.
