FUEL is an insightful portrait of America's addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Director, Josh Tickell, a young activist, shuttles us on a whirlwind journey to track the rising domination of the petrochemical industry -- from Rockefeller's strategy to halt Ford's first ethanol cars to Vice President Cheney's petrochemical company sponsored energy legislation -- and reveals a gamut of available solutions to "repower America"--Vertical farms that occupy skyscrapers to algae facilities that turn wastewater into fuel. Tickell and a surprising array of environmentalists, policy makers, and entertainment notables take us through America's complicated, often ignominious energy past and illuminate a hopeful, achievable future, where decentralized, sustainable living is not only possible, it's imperative
Bhutto( Visual )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A recent Sundance world premiere, Bhutto tells the epic story of one of the most fascinating characters of our time--Benazir Bhutto, the first woman in history to lead a Muslim nation. A favored daughter of the family often called the "Kennedys of Pakistan," Benazir was elected Prime Minister after her father was overthrown and executed by his own military. Her two terms in power saw extreme acts of courage and controversy as she tried to clean up Pakistan's corrupt political culture while quelling the fires of radical Islam that threaten to engulf the region. A fascinating array of archival footage and interviews with family members and leading experts brings life to this tale of Shakespearean dimension in the country the Economist calls the World's most dangerous place."--Container

"Pump is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America's addiction to oil, from its corporate consiparacy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it - and finally win choice at the pump. Today, oil is our only option for transportation-fuel at the pump. Our exclusive use of it has drained our wallets, increased air pollutions and sent out sons and daughters to war in faraway lands. Pump shows how, through the use of replacement fuels, we will be able to fill up our cars - cheaper, cleaner and American made - and in the process create more jobs for a stronger, healthier economy"--Container
