As promised, a date for the screening of The Oil Machine. We have decided on Thursday January 26th. at 7pm in St. Benedict's Hall. How can we break our addition to oil? Join us for a screening of the new film The Oil Machine The Oil Machine explores our economic, historical and emotional entanglement with fossil fuels by looking at the conflicting imperatives around North Sea oil & gas. This invisible machine at the core of our economy and society now faces an uncertain future as activists and investors demand change. Is this the end of oil? The film brings together a wide range of voices from oil company executives, economists, young activists, oil workers, pension fund managers, and considers how this machine can be tamed, dismantled or repurposed.
