Strategic Oil

No place on Earth is immune from strategic oil. Technological advances have aided us in our objectives toward growth at all cost, and our capacity for consumption has led us beyond the point of unsustainable demand. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss what lies beyond the conventional recovery for oil and gas: devastated landscapes abandoned to frack deposits below the ocean floor, energy companies competing for oil interests in the Arctic, despite the risks, despite the unproven technologies, despite the political and environmental efforts to protect the region. What price are we willing to pay for growth?
