....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.
....Russian technology was developed in the 1970s to test the theory by drilling as deep as 40,000 feet into the earth. As a result, Russia was the first nation to begin to understand and exploit these renewable oil reserves, and today their oil industry is thriving.
The political implications for Barack Obama and the radical environmentalist base he panders to with his corrupt "renewable" energy policy are profound. First, as we've seen, the president continually misrepresents the amount of recoverable oil available to us. His assertion that we have "only two percent of the world's oil reserves" available to us is simply a lie, as Susan Duclos documents in this piece. We're awash in oil reserves, and it's up to our political candidates to expose Obama's baseless fabrications about our energy reserves.
Beyond that, most Americans have digested the fact that the entire environmentalist rationale for pursuing "green energy" technology is built on fabricated global warming....

I agree with you 100% I have read stuff like that myself in times past, but have not been able to show documentation, so people just look at me as if I’m nuts.
I don’t know if you’d call it a reliable source, but I’d be happy to drive you around Texas and show you derelict rigs that are still sitting over dried up wells. It sure didn’t replenish. There. No one with half a brain should accept this hypothesis as fact without a lot more study and data.
One thing they didn’t say was the Kola well was not drilled as an oil or gas well but to determine the nature of the earths crust.
An Inconvenient Truth. ;o)
A 10 gal fish tank is 20"x12"x10"
Multiply HUNDREDS of BILLIONs of Barrels by 42 GALLONS, then figure the shear size THAT ONE reserve is.
Now theory is that dinosaurs and vegetation under heta PRESSUER and time turn into oil. PRESSURE compacts mass.
That means these massive oil reserves had to be much larger before the plant and animal mass was compressed.
Now when plants or animals die, they decompose into dust or compost. What caused all this plant and animal material to NOT decompose, but to be trapped underground in stassis, to be compressed and heated over time? How did what was on TOP of the earth, in a relatively short period of time, get transported 10,000 feet below the surface?
Now take all your figuring, and apply that to NUMEROUS oil reserves ALL OVER the world.
These current KNOWN reserves would be OVER a TRILLION BARRELS.
WHo built those ingenious structures anyway?
“That is a baseless assumption.”
Where is your proof that oil is created on a continual basis?
You need to deal with reality. The Texas oil fields are nearing exhaustion. Why haven’t they been replenished?
If oil is produced continually, then why is the price of gas going up?
There is a simple market-based explanation for that: As time goes by, the more costly reserves are tapped, and that forces up the price.
“...the entire environmentalist rationale for pursuing “green energy” technology is built on fabricated global warming....”
IMHO, their true rationale is world control and wealth redistribution, i.e., communism. I have believed this since Mikhail Gorbachev ‘converted” from communism to environmentalism.
Because all of this take place on ocean floors over hundreds of millions of years.
The Earth’s moon never had enough oxygen to support organisms anywhere. Nor has it ever had enough atmosphere to support H20 in liquid form. H20 on the moon is like C02 on earth. You can freeze CO2 into a solid (dry ice) but it will sublimate directly to gas skipping the liquid form entirely.
The moon simply does not have enough mass to have an atmosphere in the planetary sense. Atmospheric pressure and volume are directly proportional to the gravity, and Earth’s moon just doesn’t have enough.
Ever heard of "stripper wells"? Those would be "dried up" oil wells that were started up with the existing infrastructure in place and produce commercially-viable quantities of oil again. Prominent in the Permian Basin.
There is a slight bit of truth in their comment, the oceans are creating oil as we type. The same process that created these oil bearing sands hundreds of millions of years ago is still ongoing.
The truth is that nothing is limitless. The time will come where we not only do not have any oil, but we won’t have water or atmosphere. The Earth will be as dry and desolate as Mars. There are some interesting theories (which are unproven) that our assumptions about the mechanism by which oil reserves come into existence, but no scientist, not a single one has ever postulated that we have a limitless supply of oil.
Much like there are no leaf prints in oil derived from hydrogenated coal.
However, if one chooses to look, evidence of the biological origins are there, the same as they are there in crude oil pumped up through a well.
Which isn't to say that if anybody wants to, they can't put their money where their mouth is and hand over said money to someone buying up leases on previously depleted oilfields, secure in the knowledge that they'll be topped up from below any day now...
The ocean floor is emitting giant globs of crude oil off Long Beach, CA. Saw it. Too bad we can't harvest it.
I’ve heard of them, in fact I have several of them and your definition of a stripper well is different than mine or the TRRC.
Those of us who have worked in the Oil Field have known these FACTS for 40 years, why has it taken so long for the press to pick up on it?? Maybe we should be asking members of the PRESS why they never bothered to report the TRUTH about Anything, instead of parroting the scumbag politicians. Seems to me there is a good case to be made for REVOKING the Broadcast License to use the PUBLIC AIRWAVES for all 3 networks, even though I have not watched anything on those channels in over 20 years, but I still read and hear the commentary on the radio and the clips of their gushing contempt for the Truth.
