How can we break our addiction to oil? Quantock Eco invites you to join us in partnership with Climate Action Taunton for an inspiring screening of the film The Oil Machine and a conversation on our energy future.

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.

This event will be the first of two film screening and discussion sessions in partnership with Climate Action Taunton, the next date will be Friday the 27th of October.
