5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, 3 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Crude Awakening: the Oil Crash [DVD] (DVD)
Another eye opening documentary examining the theory that we have reached or even gone past the peak of oil production. Considering the reliance that our society has on oil, the lack of any real replacement for oil, our ever expanding population and ever expanding desire for oil dependent products, it makes you wonder what state the world will be in in 50 years or so. When oil does start to run dry, and that is a certainty (though of course we don't know when it will happen), it is likely that society will have to make fundamental changes. Travel will have to be significantly reduced, the population is unlikely to be sustainable and it is highly likely that there will be some sort of unrest.

The real problem is that the greedy (George Bush et al) have not planned or invested in the future and have grown rich on plundering oil stocks knowing there is nothing to replace it. There is no suitable replacement for oil and, although it's possible that a fully working hydrogen cell will be developed in the near future, it appears unlikely to happen before oil runs dry.

As I said, thought provoking. But will George and his good buddies watch it?
