Editorial Reviews

On April 20th, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded off the Gulf of Mexico, killing eleven BP workers and spewing 200 million barrels of oil into the ocean. DIRTY ENERGY brings to light the personal stories of the Louisiana fishermen and local residents directly impacted by the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history. Filmmaker Bryan D. Hopkins gains intimate access to the lives and homes of these people, as they struggle to rebuild their lives and contend with emerging health crises related to the toxic dispersants used to clean up the spill. DIRTY ENERGY paints a poignant portrait of the human cost of the calamity, and the systematic failure by BP and the U.S. Government to effectively and transparently manage the environmental impact.

Format: DVD
To be a fisherman means you need to love to be on water not land, a mechanic so you can fix your boat when it breaks down in the middle of the ocean, have navigation sense, understand tides and work some 20 hours a day at a time. This is not a business that you get to learn in any college, you learn by tradition. Most documentaries hype up the story with loud music that you can hardly get to hear the narrator. This documentary is different. There is no narration, fishermen talk, fish wholesalers talk and their families talk. You do not get statistics; you get facts, real facts, what it means to have oil in an environment where oil has no business. This documentary is about the impact of oil spills on marine life and the fisherman families' livelihood for generations to come.

Average life span of Exxon Valdez worker was 51 year old. Infact, everyone who worked on the cleanup of Exxon Valdez is dead. OSHA does not recognize colds or flues which are the hazards of oil spill cleanup. That one sentence which allows the spiller not to report colds and flues releases any oil company from any chemical induced illness which is not recognized by OSHA. Exxon was able to reduce the five billion dollar liability to five hundred million after some twenty years of court proceeding and a final Supreme Court decision which paid ten cents on the dollar to the fishermen. Once again, after some twenty years of legal proceeding with fishermen pilling up huge financial bills, debts and still millions of gallons of oil all around Valdez, some one foot below the grade. Oil industry learned that controlling the images means limiting liability since public perception is everything.

This DVD for me is full of information about the cleanup operation and the impact that the oil spill had on all those who were involved , but more importantly it is a documentary about the manipulation of how the public are presented with information by corperate America to control their comprehension of what is happening . To learn how you are being presented with controled story by both the Government and corperations , to make you feel all is well .
To see how these people lie and control with image control is asstounding .
If you are interested in how you as a human is being played , this is the one
