Posted on 03/19/2012 6:58:46 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
President Barack Obama and his green energy confederates are determined to scare the public about a declining supply of "fossil fuels." If we accept the idea that oil is produced by the conversion of organic matter -- from plants to dinosaurs -- under extreme pressure, we must also accept the idea that there is a limited supply of oil and that we've got to do everything we can to find a replacement for fossil fuels before we run out.
The evidence is mounting that not only do we have more than a century's worth of recoverable oil in the United States alone (even if there is a limit to the earth's oil supply), but that we also actually have a limitless supply of Texas tea because oil is in fact a renewable resource that is being constantly created deep under the earth's surface and which rises upward, where microscopic organisms that thrive in the intense pressure and heat miles below us interact with and alter it.
In other words, we have an unending supply of oil, some of which is constantly migrating upward from the depths at which it is created to refill existing oil deposits, and much more of which remains far below the surface. This oil can be recovered using existing technology. Scientist Thomas Gold presents the decades-old theory of "abiotic" oil-creation, which supports these facts, in his book, The Deep Hot Biosphere. In it he explains that the idea of the "biotic" creation of "fossil fuels" -- that decaying organic matter is compressed into oil -- is incorrect. In fact, the earth is constantly producing new oil very deep below its surface, and in some cases the oil flows up to replenish existing oil fields thought to be exhausted.

I like the way these articles make liberals’ heads explode.
I have been saying this for decades now.... “fossil fuels” is nothing but a myth... want proof, bury a dead animal in your yard, return in a year and dig it up... you have bones and dirt, not oil.... millions of years will not turn bone or dirt to oil.... ashes to ashes, dust to dust (not ashes to oil, dust to oil).. another econazi myth..
Oil and gas are renewable resources. Always have been. Anyone in that industry understands it. Only and idiot or fool or government hack believe it comes from “dino-sources”
“How are we supposed to be able to control all these people and impose our utopia on them if they have access to all the energy and mobility that they want!!!!????”
Also, isn’t Titan, one of the moons of Saturn, covered in lakes of frozen natural gas? Sure as heck aren’t any dead dinos there.
Humans have only scratched the surface of what’s in the earth. We have little idea what’s actually down there. The deepest bore-hole of any kind was drilled by the Russians - about 40,000 feet, I believe.
that’s not even a pin-prick, given the size of the Earth.
I remember Rush Limbaugh talking about this years ago. It’s seems that old oil wells are filling back up from farther underground. Which could only mean that either the earth is a LOT older than scientists believe and we are only tapping the “top layer” of oil (which seems unlikely as there are other methods to measure the age of the earth), or at least a portion of the oil is being produced by a non-biological process down near the mantle and working it’s way up (which would mean that the supply of oil is essentially limitless). While this theory is certainly not mainstream, there is some evidence, not the least of which is the abundance of hydrocarbons the moons of Saturn, which certainly weren’t produced by biological means.

I’ve always agreed with abiotic oil but would add that we need to determine the “balance point” of our use v. abiotic production.
Honest question here: Is it possible to used carbon dating on oil?
If it were found to all be millions of years old then yes there is a finite limit based upon how much we are bringing to the surface.
If it were found to be much younger then a case could be made that it is being produced now and then we would need to know how much per decade vs how much we are extracting.
Agree. I have said for years that there could not possibly be enough plants and dinosaurs that died to create the billions and billions of oil that exist today.
Every day we consume 19 million barrels of oil, every single day!
How many brontosauruses is that?
Carbon dating won’t work past 20k years, and I’m being generous.
This has been pretty evident for a while, oil is not a limited resource created by dead and long decayed plat and organic matter, but the end result of processes within the earth.
Of course, can’t say for 100% certainty that is what is going on, but we have never been able to say with 100% certainty that the current believe its created from long dead organic matter is right either. They have based this belief on the fact that coal is obviously created that way, and that organic markers can be found in oil.
However if Oil is produced by microbial action far below the surface, finding organic residue in oil would be expected.
I think the evidence that its not limited supply, has been mounting for a long long time, but no one wants to accept this reality.
Wow, don't even know where to start. Oil is the result of extreme pressure, heat and lot's of time.
Srs. you need to take a basic education courses, not at the college level but 5-6 grade level. Your response is embarrassing to say the least
This nonsense again?
