Summary A powerful portrait of America's overwhelming addiction to, and reliance on, oil. Having been born and raised in one of the USA's most oil-producing regions, Josh Tickell saw firsthand how the industry controls, deceives, and damages the country, its people, and the environment, and after one too many people he know became sick, he knew he just couldn't idly stand by any longer.
Unlimited is a documentary about renewable energy and other alternatives to fossil fuels. It highlights a group of passionate 6th graders who call on adults everywhere to take action and address global warming. Their voices are supported with those of global warming and energy experts who discuss promising technologies such as solar, wind, and tidal power, as well as the issues of transportation and food sustainability. To demonstrate the here-and-now practicality of these technologies, the film includes on-site footage of solar panels, wind turbines, low and zero-emissions vehicles, tidal generators and much more.
