Oscar contender Fuel is an insightful portrait of America's addiction to oil and an uplifting testiment 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 gammut of available solutions to "repower America" --from 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.
