"The heart of this film is really about the issues of health, future generations, and the value of our own land and resources. The film was made to support the story of the Texas coalition and their struggle against a giant power company. It is our way of giving other states and communities a model for what can happen when people take personal responsibility and get results. We want people to know that they don’t have to give up hope."
- Robert Redford, Film Narrator
BLOOD AND OIL: To see the film trailer, click here.
The notion that oil motivates America's military engagements in the Middle East is often disregarded as nonsense or mere conspiracy theory. In Blood and Oil, bestselling author and Nation magazine defense correspondent Michael T. Klare challenges this conventional wisdom and corrects the historical record. Blood and Oil calls for a radical re-thinking of US energy policy, warning that unless we change direction, we stand to be drawn into one oil war after another as the global hunt for diminishing world petroleum supplies accelerates.
WNY Climate Action Coalition meetings are open to the public. Meetings are held at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Buffalo at 7 PM on the third Wednesday of every month, and the WNYCAC is grateful to the church’s Social Justice Task Force for its sponsorship.
