“Whiskey is for drinking, and water is for fighting over.”

– an American West proverb

“Thirst for Power” is a one-hour long documentary produced by Disco Productions and base on Dr. Michael E. Webber’s first book, Thirst for Power: the Story of Energy. The visualizations and accounts are adapted from Dr. Webber’s book, and based in France, California, and Texas.
