Imagine a world where a global energy crisis has left us without cars to drive. Motor vehicles sit abandoned in junk piles, and on the sides of roads, because there is no more oil left to fuel them.
We are giving away a pair of tickets to see PUMP the movie at any showing on October 4. To win, comment on this post why you’d like to attend. Winner will be drawn and emailed Friday, October 3.
Pump:The Movie is a documentary from directors Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell. The question that is asked by this film is, “can America truly end its dependence on oil?” Not just foreign oil, but oil in general.
Produced in conjunction with the nonprofit Fuel Freedom Foundation, “Pump” is less a movie than a Web page in motion. But the arguments have an appealing logic for those concerned about the environment.
The U.S. energy problem is very much due to a breakdown of the free market, contends the new documentary, “Pump.” Married co-directors Josh Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell show how Big Oil’s monopoly on transportation fuels hurts Americans more than they realize. If drivers had options when filling up their tanks, both country and consumers would benefit.
