ENERGY WAR

A Film by Shuchen Tan, Ijsbrand van Veelen, and Rudi Boon

In a world in which the U.S. and Europe are addicted to oil and gas, and =
those increasingly scarce resources are controlled by authoritarian =
regimes in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Venezuela, Nigeria and Russia, the =
geopolitical ramifications have upset the traditional balance of power =
between nations. ENERGY WAR reveals precisely how the economic =
importance of fossil fuels affects international politics and becomes a =
powerful tool of foreign policy.

The film profiles newly emergent "superpowers" such as Iran, a rogue =
regime that Western democracies must politically tolerate to assure =
access to its oil, and Venezuela, where President Hugo Chavez has =
nationalized the oil industry, which boasts the largest untapped oil =
field in the world. Through interviews with Russian and Georgian =
government officials, ENERGY WAR shows how oil was used as a political =
weapon in the struggle between an economically revitalized Russia and =
its former Soviet Republic.

Thomas Friedman (author of The Lexus and the Olive Tree: Understanding =
Globalization and The World is Flat) analyzes the political concept of =
"petro authoritarianism" and Kenneth Deffeyes (Hubbert's Peak: The =
Impending World Oil Shortage and Beyond Oil) explains the "Peak Oil" =
phenomenon, the point at which the earth's supply of oil begins its =
terminal decline.

ENERGY WAR concludes by investigating the search for alternatives to our =
dependency on oil, featuring interviews with economists, stock market =
traders, and new energy entrepreneurs who discuss the pros and cons of =
such possible substitutes as biofuels, hydropower, nuclear and solar =
energy. As China, Africa, Latin America and even Saudi Arabia are =
preparing for a "green" future, it's clear that a world of new energy =
sources will reshape the global balance of political power.
