A Crude Awakening. The Oil Crash

Un crudo risveglio. The Oil Crash
by Basil Gelpke, Ray McCormack Documentary Svizzera/Switzerland 2006 55'

What is the connection between the US military intervention in Iraq, Teheran's growing atomic ambitions, Moscow's nationalization of natural gas reserves and Hugo Chavez's populist politics in Venezuela? Intensively exploited for over a century, the fields will eventually dry up; with no international solution on the horizon, the risk of global economic crisis is imminent. Grounded on expert opinion, A Crude Awakening - The Oil Crash offers an intelligent examination of one of today's most urgent problems, delineating the potential risks of a renewed oil crisis and the possible means to avert it.
