Summary, etc.:
Narrated by Emma Thompson, this award-winning documentary looks at where we are going to find our oil and gas today - to the ends of the earth - fracking, oil sands, deepwater and unconventional drilling. The film chronicles the rise of extreme energy and a new way forward.. The people we meet are uniquely positioned to watch this global crossroads unfold. From a river conservationist in Utah who protects the Colorado River from oil shale projects, to an Inuit mayor in the high Arctic who worries that seismic tests affect the animals Inuit people depend on, to an environmental lawyer who learns why Alberta's tar sands -- the second largest oil project in the world -- is economically unsustainable, TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH gives voice to those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision a new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.
