How We Got Addicted to Oil
An 11 year-long journey around the world to find out how fuel came to dictate our lives
Extreme dependency on fuel, apart from being a recipe for environmental disaster, has also been an instrumental cause for political conflict over the years. Now, in this documentary directed by Josh Tickell, we get to learn how this state of things came to be: Fuel takes us through an 11 year-long journey around the world to find out how fuel came to dictate our lives, and what solutions we can hope for in the future.
A shrinking economy, a failing auto industry, rampant unemployment, an out-of-control national debt, and an insatiable demand for energy weigh heavily on all of us. Fuel shows us the way out of the mess we’re in by explaining how to replace every drop of oil we now use, while creating green jobs and keeping our money here at home. The film never dwells on the negative, but instead shows us the easy solutions already within our reach.
