Oil addicts anonymous
29 September 2014 | by dineyjSee all my reviews

Finally a movie that addresses our oil addiction along with solutions to allow the monopoly of big oil to end after two generations. I thought that it was going to be another veiled promo of big oil since an ex-Big oil executive was part of the film. He surprisingly showed signs of being a born again environmentalist.

Given the over-all silence and conditioning we have received about it being OK to have a monopoly in our economy it is refreshing that information about the truth of what is going on is complimented by some solutions we can take now.
