For over 100 years we've relied on oil. Now we're running out. Can we survive without it?

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo gains unprecedented access to the leaders in the oil industry, asking tough questions of the men who run the most profitable companies in the history of the United States:

  • Why was there such a dramatic and historic spike in gas and oil prices over the past year?
  • Do the American oil giants feel responsible for the ripple effect of the staggeringly high price?
  • What can the American consumer can expect down the road?

In this CNBC Original Production, Bartiromo addresses the issue of global thirst: How much oil is left? Is the planet running dry? Some of the foremost experts say yes.

Also, in a rare sit down interview with ConocoPhillips CEO James Mulva, Bartiromo asks about feeding global thirst, finding oil in troubled spots around the globe and delicately balancing the relationships with leaders in Venezuela, Russia, Iran, Libya and China -- and what's at stake when those relationships fail.

And finally, the alternatives. The special looks at turning the corner towards renewables. Which ones are viable and how are the oil giants positioned to deal with the inevitable transformation.

Plus more than 20 minutes of bonus material, including Bartiromo's revealing interview with Governor Sarah Palin.
