Most people today believe we are "addicted" to oil. Nothing could be further from the truth. Addictions destroy lives. Oil is your life! Petroleum is the foundation of the modern world providing everything from the fuel for nearly all transportation to the plastics and petrochemicals that are in virtually every product. Yet most people believe oil is a dirty sin. How can this be? spOILed takes a provocative, often humorous and ultimately frightening look at the deceptions surrounding our understanding of oil. It exposes those responsible for the deception, including high-powered politicians such as Sen. Jeff Bingaman and Energy Secretary Bill Richardson. The film reveals the media's anti-oil bias, skewering Bill O'Reilly and ABC News, among others. The world's most important energy experts (Michael Economides, Robert Bryce, Jon Hofmeister and more) explain why the world had better wake up to our spOILed existence because oil demand is outpacing supply and a sudden disruption would have catastrophic consequences. There is no alternative to oil and there won't be for a long time. A society that believes its very lifeblood is bad and can be eliminated is one that sets itself up for a very hard fall. This highly-stylized, fun, yet sober documentary leaves viewers with an unsettling appreciation for what they once called an "addiction."
