What Price Extra Oil?

The past few years have marked a shift away from talk of "peak oil" and subsidies in support of renewable technologies, returning us to aggressive fossil fuel extraction. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will assert that there is nothing to be gained from our short-term avoidance and denial of our reliance on fossil fuels. And he will ask, "What are we doing here? What are we doing to ourselves? To the ocean and the earth? Why are standing by and letting this travesty continue?"
