Robert Newman’s “History of Oil”

If you’ve got a broadband connection and around 45 minutes to kill, check out this brilliant blend of comedy and eductation from British Comedian Rob Newman. It’s informative, funny (if you like ‘British’ humor), and timely. More, please!

In order to get more people informed on these kinds of topics, we need more exposure in the media. Mainstream newspieces on television are usually either sound-bites that convey only a little information, or it’s a point/counter-point kind of scenario where economists/cornucopians/political hacks get to muddle the issue. Newman tells it like it is… now if only more mainstream entertainers would do the same. ‘Syriana’ was a good start, but it was too confusing to too many people.
