Rating: 3.8/5 (9 votes cast)

Forget the axis of evil, is the axis of oil. The Cold War and the War on Terror is about ideology and globalization. The 21st century will be dominated by the struggle for power: It will be every man for himself and will get dirty.

In the War of energy in two parts documentary VPRO Backlight investigates the major developments with regard to energy sources. With The New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman.The film describes the geopolitical consequences of dependence on fossil fuels. In the struggle for the last sources of fossil fuels, countries all over the world are forced to take new political and moral decisions and have to enter uncomfortable alliances: rogue regimes must be tolerated and befriended.

With a special focus on the gas dispute between Russia and Georgia and the position of Saudi Arabia. With ao Thomas Friedman, author of international bestseller The World is Flat. Friedman casts its light on the inverse relationship between oil prices and the establishment of free democracies.

The film happens to take a look at international markets for alternative energy. If oil and gas are scarce and expensive in the future, where countries turn to keep its economy going and their population warm and happy?

Could solar energy or biofuels to be the main energy sources of the post-fossil fuel? Will governments, multinationals or small producers is the engine of the green race?

    58:59 Burning the unusable part produces CO2? and burning the usable part doesn’t? Because you’ll get more CO2 emissions depending on whether the part that you burnt was usable (burnt in engine) or unusable (the waste). The plant soaked up all of that CO2 in the beginning, net effect is zero, even if you burn the whole thing.

  7. Matier2064 says:

    $50 to $70? Try $100 to $150 to $200. Then there will be no oil at any price. The price may have set backs along the way but the long term view remains very bullish.

    Free inexhaustible energy is real!But Millions are spend in supressing that information,Get a real free energy motor at LT-MAGNET-MOTORdotCOM ,Free yourself!

    How on earth is Friedman a three-time Pulitzer winner? One cannot simply say free markets for gas will equal democracy, rights and freedom. Or that protectionist policies on a nation’s key resource equals tyranny. Some good old neoliberal rhetoric right there. Its like these oil-rich countries do not have a past history, a culture, a religion or ideology which would in any way lead to an authoritarian regime. Take this a55holes Pulitzers back…

  17. dharmastipulate says:

    Free Energy is real and its here but the coverup is strong, if you are interested in a REAL free energy machine then just search for the LT MAGNET MOTOR in the youtube video search , it is probably the ONLY working magnet motor out there. Join the free energy revolution!!
