Suddenly the world looks a lot different, if you scale the map based on the planet’s most controversial resource: oil reserves. One has to wonder if this is the same map Bush and his cronies use when deciding foreign policy. You’ll also notice that Iran is big and bright, and have to wonder whether or not it’s an even more tasty target than Iraq. Image courtesy of Civic Actions dot Com.

Canada is under represented on this map. refer to this wikipedia article on the alberta oilsands, an area with approx. 175 billion barrels currently in bitumen.
Interesting post. I have made a twitter post about this. Hope others find it as interesting as I did.
