Landscape of Oil

In stunning photographs, Edward Burtynsky follows the path of oil from 17 years of work of our modern society. He illustrates from wellhead to pipeline to car engine, and then beyond to the projected peak-oil endgame. He shares how 1 liter of gas comes to be 23 metric tons of generated carbon. So when will peak oil come upon us? Are we close, or have we not seen the peak yet?
