Oil pipelines threatening democracy, environment


This video from the USA says about itself:

From Caspian Sea to Arctic to MidEast, How Oil Pipelines Threaten Democracy & Planet’s Survival. 1/3

8 Oct 2013

http://www.democracynow.org – We spend the hour looking at politics, money and the pursuit of oil, from the series of pipelines originating in the oil-rich Caspian Sea, to the deposits in the Arctic Sea where Russia has charged 30 people with piracy for a Greenpeace protest against drilling, to the vast reserves of the Middle East that have fueled conflict for decades.

Three guests join us for a roundtable discussion: Anna Galkina, a member of the London-based arts, human rights, and environmental justice organization Platform; Platform founder James Marriott, author of “The Oil Road: Journeys from the Caspian Sea to the City of London“; and Timothy Mitchell, Columbia University professor and author of the books, “Carbon Democracy: Political Power in the Age of Oil,” and “Colonizing Egypt.”

Watch the full 45-minute interview uninterrupted here.
