Oil n such???

    What If Oil and Natural Gas Are Renewable Resources?

    By Greg Lewis



    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. In simple terms, the microscopic organisms mentioned above interact with the hydrocarbons, altering them and leaving their footprint, thus disproving the notion that oil is a "fossil fuel."


    Here's an example of how the process plays out:


    Eugene Island is an underwater mountain located about 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1973 oil was struck and off-shore platform Eugene 330 erected. The field began production at 15,000 barrels a day, then gradually fell off, as is normal, to 4,000 barrels a day in 1989. Then came the surprise; it reversed itself and increased production to 13,000 barrels a day. Probable reserves have been increased to 400 million barrels from 60 million. The field appears to be filling from below and the crude coming up today is from a geological age different from the original crude, which leads to the speculation that the world has limitless supplies of petroleum.

    The theory of what Gold calls the deep hot biosphere was explored more fully in Stalinist Russia in the 1940s when the Russian dictator demanded that his scientists find a way to increase Soviet oil production. As they explored the idea that oil and other hydrocarbons are constantly being generated deep beneath the earth's surface, 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 -- recently renamed "climate change" -- science. To continue to pursue a path based on such deceit -- that the earth is warming and we must convert to "renewable" energy sources ASAP -- is to invite enslavement to an economy dominated by energy produced by Obama's political cronies and controlled, ultimately, by a central government. It's also to ignore the fact that the earth itself is a producer of virtually limitless supplies of the very renewable energy on which the infrastructure of modern civilization is built.


    The public -- likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney notwithstanding -- is ready for a message that defends oil as the fuel of the future and is buttressed by growing scientific evidence. This means that there's no need for us to look beyond our shores -- our "offshores," to be precise -- to discover where our oil is coming from. It's bubbling up constantly from miles below the surface of the earth, and it's not about to run out.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”


    Presbyterian Rev. Gilbert Tennant:

    “He that suffers his life to be taken from him by one who has no authority for that purpose, when he might preserve it by defense, incurs the Guilt of self murder since God has enjoined him to seek the continuance of his life, and Nature itself teaches every creature to defend itself.”


  • Well oil IS renewable in a sense, it just takes a long time.

    It is fucking correct, we do it in labs for study purposes, hell we can make diamonds, but it costs far far more than is profitable. At my university there is a building designed to be explosion proof FROM THE INSIDE for high pressure experiments such as these.


    There's no what if. Wells tapped out decades earlier are replenished

    This is due to oil from surrounding strata seeping in through porous rock, and its generally a tiny amount, relatively speaking.


    Yep we were gonna run out of oil by the year 2000 ... Beet used to talk about 'peak' oil.


    lazs

    We are using oil drilling tech that was science fiction just a few decades ago which helps, what they can do is insane, they can literally drill around geological barriers, even going around and up again, a drill shaft shaped like a "U", obviously this has its own challenges but it does work and CONSISTENTLY with modern tech. And there is more to come.


    Had we carried on with the tech of the 90s, hell the early 2000s, the world would be in a different place.


    Trust me on this, I spent a good four years of my life studying this and have a good chunk of my worth invested in oil and gas extraction, its something I monitor on the daily.


    If oil were abiogenic there would be plenty of the millions of geologists, chemists, physicists, palaeontologists and the rest working in the industry coming forward to show the world, or sell it, or whatever.


    Gosh it would be nice tho.

  • Trust you? That's what the Global Warming and Covid alarmist say. I'm thinking no, sorry.

    Without geologists you would be riding a mule to work country boy.


    While I never went into the industry, my friends (or perhaps cohorts is a better term) do not spend half a year or more away from their families working the middle of bumfuck nowhere for 14 hours a day based on science that does not work.

  • Go brew me a coffee bitch boy.

    Sure, I love my job.


    And I maintain its the best job ever, no more stress, no more suits, no more pointless meetings, no more conferences, just making pretty patterns on drinks.


    I have considered opening up my own place, or a few places. But thats just stress which kinda defeats the point.

    Sounds comfortable. Life was not meant to be too comfortable.

  • Think of the planet as an autoclave. Think of the expiration rate of bacterium. That is why all of the once tapped out wells are replenished to about 25% of capacity in half of a century

  • Pfffft... that limp wristed pantywaist don't know shit about stress or real life in general for that matter. Fucking man child thinks he has some sort of "expertise" in the field of geology because he took some classes a few years ago, but has no practical experience.


    Just shut the fuck up Latte Larry.

    You sound bitter, perhaps you should enrol at a community college if you can get past the entrance exam, the opportunities are all around you just have to get them, better yourself.


    It gives a certain perspective on life. I worked for around ten years before I went to university, it was a revelation.
