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?
