History of Oil – Robert Newman

Posted by ecoshift on April 22, 2007

This is, perhaps, my favorite google video. At 45 minutes it is on the long side, but not nearly as dry as the title might suggest. Robert is a british stand-up comedian with a unique perspective on the role of oil in international affairs. Quite entertaining. I particularly enjoyed his description of Salvador Dali’s “magic checkbook.”

You can watch the first ten minutes from the You Tube window directly below:

If you want more you can visit the History of Oil google video page and watch the entire 45 minutes as a single clip or download the file to your computer to watch at your leisure:
