There are three main groups of oil – animals, vegetable and mineral. Great quantities of animal oil come from whales,
those enormous creatures of the sea which are the largest remaining animals in the world. When the whale is killed, the blubber, a thick covering of fat is stripped off and boiled down. It produces a great quantity of oil which can be made into food for human consumption. The livers of the cod and halibut, two kinds of fish, yield nourishing oil.
Vegetable oil has been known from very old times. No household can get on without it, for it is used in cooking. Perfumes may be made from the oils of certain flowers.
To the ordinary man, one kind of oil may be as important as another, but when the politician or the engineer refers to oil, he almost means mineral oil, the oil that drives tanks, aeroplanes and warships, motorcars and diesel locomotives. This is the oil that has changed the life of the common man. This kind of oil comes out of the earth. Because it burns well, it is used as fuel, and in some ways it is superior to coal.
