United States of Oil - an art work by T Newfields
Sam: . . . So you believe oil is what made America a world power?
Tim: Oil is what made and unmade many countries in the 20th century. Hasn't it been the main geo-political driver for over a hundred years?
Terri: Yep! Just look at the revenue of the world's top ten corporations – six of them are in the business of sucking the Earth dry.
Ted: (sipping a cool beer) Hey, can you imagine what life would be like in a post-petroleum era?
Tim: (sighing) Not really. Won't the major oil companies try to prevent that day from coming?
