Science: Peter Maass: Totalling the Cost of Oil
When gas prices topped $4 a gallon a while back, we were all vividly reminded of the volatility of oil prices. But Peter Maass, a writer for New York Times Magazine and author of Crude World: The Violent Twilight of Oil, says there's a lot more to the cost of oil than dollar signs, from an environmental, humanitarian, and political point of view. Maass says that with every oil-producing nation is touched by a "resource curse"the power of oil to exacerbate existing problems and create new ones. From the pipeline to the boardroom, from rebels to activists to CEOs, Maass documents a complex and troubled world, the unnatural consequence of our addiction to oil. Presented as part of the Seattle Science Lectures series, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store.
