A new peak oil documentary is out, and it’s quite good. It was done for Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ , so it’s focused on Ireland, but the similarities between their dependency on oil and the U.S.’s are quite striking.

For example:

  • Ireland imports 87% of its energy requirement and consumes about 180k barrels of oil per day (population 4.2m) making it one of the highest per capita oil consumers in Europe.
  • The U.S. imports 67% of its oil and consumes about 21 million barrels per day (population 300 million) making it the biggest consumer of oil on Earth.

Plus, you get to see Colin Campbell interviewed in his home environment! It’s about an hour long so get yourself a cuppa or something.
