Lisa Margonelli: The political chemistry of oil

TED presents Lisa Margonelli who talks about the political chemistry of oil. In the Gulf oil spill’s aftermath of 2010, Lisa Margonelli says drilling moratoriums and executive ousters make for good theater, but distract from the issue at its heart: our unrestrained oil consumption. She shares her bold plan to wean America off of oil — by confronting consumers with its real cost.
