Abstract

The extinction of the dinosaurs may have been tragic, but their decomposing bodies left behind a resource valuable to the world of today: petroleum oil. Some of the more common uses include transportation, everyday household products, and construction supplies. Contrary to popular belief, we don't have to rely so heavily on foreign oil, as we have a large supply of petroleum within our own borders. Texas, the largest oil-producing state in America, puts 3.4 million barrels of oil onto the market per day. Lately it seems that oil has a bad reputation, but even though it may not be the cleanest of fuels, it is one that we are very dependent upon. This documentary sheds light on the positive aspects of the petroleum industry, while also taking a look at the dark side.
