This film chronicles the past, present, and future of America’s love affair with energy. Following up on the success of the Center of the American West report, What Every Westerner Should Know About Energy Efficiency and Conservation, this film emphasizes the sexiness of our nation’s relationship with fossil fuels and explores how that relationship is evolving into a more mature and lasting union with alternative forms of energy.

The film carries an optimism that is not found in many other programs on energy transformation, choosing instead to inform, inspire, and motivate the viewer to play an active role in moving toward a more engaged, more aware, and more exciting energy future.


The film premiered on Rocky Mountain PBS on April 15, 2010.
