lyrics

[Mike Ruppert]
Here's another piece of fun information for you: there are 10 calories of hydrocarbon energy in every calorie of food you eat. 10 calories of hydrocarbon ... Why?

Well, you plant a crop - how do you plant a crop?
You drive an oil-powered machine to till the land. Then you drive another oil-powered machine to plant the seeds. Then you've gotta irrigate it - well how do you irrigate it? With water. Well how's that pumped? Electricity. How do you make the electricity? Natural gas or oil or coal - to make the electricity. Then you spray 'em with fertilizers - well, what are all the fertilizers made from? Natural gas - ammonia is made from natural gas. What are all commercial pesticides made from? Oil!

So when the plant's all grown up and you've used all this oil to get it there then you've gotta harvest it with another oil-powered machine.

You've gotta drive it to a food processing plant with another oil-powered machine where it's processed with electricity - which is more hydrocarbon energy. Then you wrap it in plastic - which is oil. Then you drive it by another oil-powered machine to a supermarket where you go and whip out your plastic ATM card, pay for it, take it home and put it on a plastic plate which is made out of oil, throw it in a microwave oven which is run by electricity made by hydrocarbon energy; and then you eat it.

[Jimmy Carter]
The energy crisis is real, it is worldwide, it is a clear and present danger to our nation. These are facts and we simply must face them.

[Martin Luther King Jr.]
Procrastination is still the thief of time.

[Jimmy Carter]
We are at a turning point in our history.

[Martin Luther King Jr.]
The situation is one in which we must be ready to turn sharply from our present ways.

[Jimmy Carter]
This is not a message of happiness or reassurance but it is the truth and it is a warning.
