It's easy to blame big oil companies but everything is interconnected. There wouldn't be a haphazard rush for supply without demand. This doc hints at consumers making changes, but when the biggest oil consumer is the US military, what can the individual really do to change to the global market? I agree with that NYT guy, it's going to take an epic-scale disaster for real shifts in energy use. Whatever, just watch.
It's no spoiler alert to say BP is evil, but this well-intentioned piece starts out strong only to lose its grip as it becomes fueled (no pun intended) by outrage. The allegations about Corexit and interviews with Gulf residents make it worth viewing, but the Tickells' cloak and dagger exploits and vocalized vows to persevere despite the risks to themselves come across as puerile and naive. 3.5 stars
