videos on oil

Here are some videos:

Robert Newman - History of Oil
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7374585792978336967
A humorous but also deadly serious monologue on the history of oil. Explains the petrodollar using an anecdote of Salvador Dali's sketches on the back of his checks (guaranteeing that they would not be cashed).

THE END OF SUBURBIA: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of The American Dream
http://www.endofsuburbia.com/
An indictment of suburbia, an arrangement predicated on cheap oil and one that now traps us into an unsustainable transportation situation.
