Director(s): Thomas B Barker

A drop of oil is formed and begins to fall from the top of the screen. The narrator asks, 'What would you do with the last drop of oil? Use it for lubrication? Burn it for heat or power?' Traffic rushes by as we are reminded that the oil we use today took hundreds of thousands of years to produce and we have depleted it in a geological second. A challenge is raised. 'Would you use that last drop for another 'jackrabbit' start?' Everything stops when the oil is gone. BUT there is hope as we see the rising sun.
