A Crude Awakening

Is it really money that makes the world go round? If only it were so simple. Oil lubricates our global economy. Proof? 98% of the world's transportation is directly dependent on oil.

The film OilCrash, produced and directed by award-winning European journalists and filmmakers Basil Gelpke and Ray McCormack, tells the story of how our civilization's addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology. Compelling, intelligent, and highly entertaining, the film visits with the world's top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion - our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
