The Hunt for Black Gold DVD probes the pressing issue of the global oil supply. As gas prices surge and supplies dwindle, CNBC's Maria Bartiromo presses oil industry leaders for answers. The CNBC DVD explores what the future holds for American consumers and an industry in transition.
The Hunt for Black Gold DVD sets up the problem simply: For over 100 years we've relied on oil, but now we're running out. Can we survive without it?
In the CNBC DVD, Maria Bartiromo gains unprecedented access to the leaders in the oil industry, asking tough questions of the men who run the most profitable companies in the history of the United States:
Why was there such a dramatic and historic spike in gas and oil prices over the past year, and what can the American consumer expect down the road?
In the CNBC Store original production, Bartiromo asks: Is the planet running dry? Some of the foremost experts say yes. The Hunt for Black Gold DVD includes a rare, sit-down interview with ConocoPhillips CEO James Mulva, Bartiromo asks about feeding global fuel thirst, finding oil in troubled spots around the globe and delicately balancing the relationships with leaders in Venezuela, Russia, Iran, Libya and China -- and what's at stake when those relationships fail. The CNBC DVD also explores the alternatives -- which renewable energy sources are viable and how the oil giants are positioned to deal with the inevitable transformation -- and features more than 20 minutes of bonus material, including Bartiromo's revealing interview with Governor Sarah Palin.
