The Coming Oil War, an article by Jed Babbin (12.2.13), concludes. "There are other oil wars in our future. These, if they happen, will be only a small beginning."

All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died (Genesis 7:11-22).Then followed the hydrodynamics of moon and oceans no longer constrained by shores, and unfathomable geological forces that changed an indelible legacy of death into oil, the fuel of war!
