    Combination of plant, animal and minerals found on and within the earth over billions of years. Just the biomass of single celled creatures found in the ocean is more than all the bio material found on land. All that is included. Is that what you were referring to?

    First, a moment of silence for all those billions and billions of velicoraptors who died on that spot oh so long ago to become "fossil fuels"

    Yet another oil find so the venal and corrupt leaders of Africa can steal from their people and bankrupt their nation while they make Swiss bankers rich and buy villas in Monaco.

    Not all nations are ready for self-rule. As bad as it may of been under the British or one of the European nations the better course would of been to demand the ruling class change while at the same time educating the people. Can not have a decent life for everyone if everyone is under-educated.

    It is a good point though, corrupt leaders are destroying so many people in so many countries.

    Oil is a fossil fuel.. It does renew itself, but only in small doses. Certainly not enough to sustain the use of it, at least not far into the future.

    There's lots of oil in the world.

    What there is not a lot of is cheaply accessible oil.
