Oil is NOT a So-Called "Fossil Fuel" Rather is Generated Naturally by the Earth

    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!

    The space program should have demolished the myth of "Fossil fuels"

    There are lakes of the stuff on Saturn's Moon Titan, 300 below zero, no biological activity but lakes of "fossil fuels"

    Fascinating. It makes sense that the Oil companies would be the ones touting the scarcity ploy as it would increase profits.

    Oil Companies have been trying to tell people that oil is a renewable resource my entire life. Liberals are so heavily invested in the myth or running out of oil that they won't let the truth out.

    Yet oil companies saw how retarded the left was and said "Let's use these dumbasses twice, first to buy the product we produce and then to drive up the price by pelting a fake theory on them!"

    Next one you will hear about fresh water running out in America! Oh wait we already hear that faux story!

    I read that also. The Saturn's moons are blessed with resources that people call fossil fuel, yet life could never survive there!

    There is some abiotic oil but the majority comes from dead algae, plants & animals. Oil wells refill because the trapped pool of oil is small compared to the huge area of decayed bio-matter that keeps seeping into those oil trap pools. Directional horizontal drilling speeds up the seeping from the huge underground field into the traps. This is just one reason why the so called Peak Oil Experts have been wrong for over a hundred years.

    It's never been considered a scientific theory that oil came from decaying dinosaurs. Ordinary common sense refutes that logic out of hand.

    The actual source of oil is the same as the source of coal, which is decaying biomass. It is a process very similar to peat bogs but in an era when the earth was warmer and the growth of plant life was rampant on earth; an earth so warm that even the polar regions were covered with vegetation.

    I can visit the coal-fields very near here in souther Indiana, and find large fern fossils imbedded in the rock layers above the coal. It is those ferns and the stalks and trunks they were attached to that through natural decay process became coal, or oil, or natural gas or methane.

    A lake Erie size amount of "Fossil fuels" makes a mockery of the "pressure cooked velicoraptors in geological time" notion of hydrocarbon creation
