Why Water Is More Important To Iran’s Future Than Oil

It’s the water that will determine Iran’s future, and not it’s oil and gas. What’s worse, the current drought, which stretches back more than two decades, shows no signs of letting up. The World Resources Institute projects a 20 percent decrease in water supply across much of Iran toward 2040. Conversely, it sees demand rising by as much as 70 percent in that time.

Oil Slides As Inventories Trump Iran-Yemen Push-Pull

The crude oil rally due to airstrikes on Yemen, reversed the sell-off that occurred in part on the rising odds of a deal with Iran being reached.

Russia On The Verge Of Dealing A Massive Blow To The Petrodollar
