The Great Myth is that oil comes from the decaying dinosaurs over millions of years ago and that is were oil comes from. The theory should good to Environazis because then they can scream against drilling and for an alternative. It's not the belief amongst all scientist, in fact more and more scientist are coming the the conclusion oil is abiotic substances that the Earth creates naturally and regularly. Think about it. All we hear is Peak Oil. My older cousin said he was told in school peak oil was going to hit in 1980s. I was told it was around the corner in 2000s. Now we find ourselves in an oil boom? How are scientist always off on Peak Oil and gigantic discovers, from Russia, Brazil, Israel, US etc are happening regularly? It's because it naturally created by the Earth and then is squeezed out from the earths crust in large deposits! I think the key distributors of the Peak Oil Myth are the Oil companie themselves. It's suppy and demand. If demand is hugh, but supply is just as high price can increase to capitalize on the high demand. If demand is high, but supply is PRECEIVED as low, then price can be shot up. They push these myths to make record profits!
