Extreme Oil

Mark and I stayed up WAY too late Saturday night. Not because we were out drinking or dancing. Nope, we couldn't stop watching PBS. That's right, we are animals.

Extreme Oil was on, and it was fascinating. The show inspired us to want to know about what the oil companies are doing. They are so powerful, and pretty much everything we use in our daily lives is made from oil. The very structure of society is based upon our consumption of it. Amazing, considering it has only been a little over 100 years since the industrial revolution.

After watching a few episodes, I am frightened, angry, and feeling pretty powerless. But I recommend watching it anyway.
