A Video of How Dependent we are on Oil for our Food

This clip is from a new documentary called "Collapse", which I believe centers around a series of interviews with a man named Michael Ruppert, who published a newsletter called "From the Wilderness" which delved into political coverups, government involvement in drug trafficking, etc. He is also a proponent of Peak Oil. Anyway, this clip (less than 2 minutes) has Ruppert detailing the processes of food production and manufacturing, and how virtually every process in that line is contingent upon oil. It's a very sobering look at how dependent we are on factory farming and the Interstate highway system for how we tend to eat (either going to the supermarket or restaurants).
