THE OIL FACTOR: BEHIND THE WAR ON TERROR
Inspired by Jan Lundberg
http://www.CultureChange.org

Today, 6.5 billion humans depend entirely on oil for food, energy, plastics and chemicals. Population growth is on a collision course with the inevitable decline in oil production. After assessing today’s dwindling oil reserves and skyrocketing use of oil for fuels, plastics and chemicals, this new documentary questions the motives for the U.S. wars in the Middle-East and Central Asia where 3/4 of the world’s oil and natural gas is located. Filmmakers Ungerman and Brohy expose the human cost and examine the big picture of the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq that may lead the world toward the next global conflict. Did you know that almost half a million U.S. military personnel are deployed overseas near oil fields and oil routes? Or that the U.S. military deployment in Afghanistan and Central Asia blocks China and Russia from accessing oil and natural gas they desperately need for their economies? Interviews gathered throughout the Middle-East, Europe, and the U.S., including a Bechtel executive in Baghdad, also expose who is cashing in on the tens of billions of dollars requested from Congress by the current administration of Dubbya Bush. A must-see for anyone who wants to fill in the blanks with what is really at stake with today’s “war on terror.”

Before and after the film, everyone’s invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House
