Let's be serious, they are inseparable.

A couple of years ago CBC Television out of Canada broadcast a what I recall as a three to five part series. It was on the history of oil, started with whaling ended with the North Sea.

The post WWII part with Britain and Iran, and the US with the House of Saud was mind blowing.

The way these coexisting partnerships were orchestrated to rule the world disrupted much of what I thought I knew about geopolitics.

If you are a Canadian resident you can probably view it on line, wish I could remember the name of the series. I have a roof top TV antenna and watched it live.

My point is, the more you know about the history of oil, the more you understand economics, politics and the world today.
