I am grateful to my colleague Arthur Mason for conjuring up the title ‘Oil Talk’ as a way of encapsulating the now vast field of writing on oil and the discursive carbon world of which it is part. Hannah Chadeayne Appel, another oil aficionado, offered constructive criticism of an earlier draft. Parts of this essay appear in a more developed form in Watts, M. (2012) ‘A Tale of Two Gulfs’, American Quarterly 64(3): 437–67.
