Oil changes the landscape of our world

Oil. This one particular commodity greatly impacts many landscapes around the world.

Edward Burtynsky, the man behind the film, Manufactured Landscape, studied how oil impacts the world from celebrating how oil has given us ability to travel from one place to another to suffering from the mass destruction of the environment.  Besides photographing the lives of the factory workers in China, he captured incredible and scandalous photographs of various landscapes affected by oil.

I just discovered a great video clip from a TED lecture by Burtynsky who spoke about how oil affects the landscape in both good and bad ways.  It’s absolutely mind-blowing!
