All life on Earth is threatened by catastrophic climate change - the main culprit is so powerful that the US government is set up to serve it, rather than regulate it. 

The oil industry is a powerhouse with control over land, resources, politics and more. In this episode of The Empire Files, Abby Martin uncovers big oil's strong-arm reach - its growth, its crimes, its power and its impunity.

This episode features interviews with two investigative journalists who have covered oil disasters on-the-ground - Antonia Juhasz, author of Black Tide: The Devastating Impact of the Gulf Oil Spill and Greg Palast, author of Vulture's Picnic: In Pursuit of Petroleum Pig, Power Pirates, and High-Finance Carnivores.
