abiotic – definition per “Dictionary.com” – adjective ‘of or characterized by the absence of life or living organisms.’ In other words not derived from fossilised material. (This can allow for oil having been derived from both sources.)
So much argument about the importance of oil affecting our future, appears in different aspects.
Its contribution to pollution and hence the claimed “CAGW”, its importance to countries for their production and cooling and heating, its ability to make the rich richer and the poor poorer, its providing the energy and motivation for warfare, its lack of continuity creating virtual panic in establishing alternative energy sources.
It would be possible to expand all these aspects with interesting comments and conclusions, although there is probably plenty of such information already on the net.
This post is to introduce a new factor, not new in the sense of current because the article was issued in 1995, but new angles not in the public eye.
What if subterranian oil and presumably gas supplies are self-replenishing? Not necessarily at sufficient rate to permit current usage levels, but sufficient to justify the
suspected world power movement ‘s suspected aims of reducing the global population to a fraction of its current number, or at the very least to prevent further increases.
Here is an extract from the Rense post:
To begin with, oil is not a fossil fuel. This is a theory put forth by 18th century scientists. Within 50 years, Germany and France’s scientists had attacked the theory of petroleum’s biological roots. In fact, oil is abiotic, not the product of long decayed biological matter. And oil, for better or for worse, is not a non-renewable resource. It, like coal, and natural gas, replenishes from sources within the mantle of earth. This is the real and true science of oil. Read all about it.
In fact, working in the 1950s, Russian and Ukrainian scientists, cut off from the Western World’s oil supply, applied their keen minds to the problem and, by the 1960s, had thoroughly demolished the idea of oil as a ‘fossil fuel,’ Is it any wonder then that Russia is one of if not the leading producers and exporters of oil. The isolation of the Cold War forced Russia to dig deeper, literally, to find oil deeper in the earth in some places, and to look in other places where no one had thought to look to reveal more. This while America feels incumbent upon itself, since it claims oil production and discovery has peaked and will fade to nothing in several decades, that America’s feels it must make war to take other people’s oil: Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, the Caspian Basin, Sudan, etcetera.
And to others who have oil, it must either rattle its saber, as with Venezuela, threaten to kill its president who will not buckle and sell all his oil to America. And with the Saudis we will protect them from their own terrorists and any Saddam that comes along. And we will get in bed with them so long as we can have the lion’s share of their oil, and the say-so as to who gets the rest. And therein lays the evil genius, secret and sham of the ‘Peak Oil‘ put on.
If oil, as coal, and natural gas, restores itself by nature, if we will more likely run into it then out of it, how do we continue to make money on it? Certainly not by giving oil away at some reasonable price. After World War II, oil was about 25 cents a gallon at the pump. Even given the spiraling inflation since then-last week I paid $3.50 a gallon for it in New York City, 14 times that price. A week after the summer holiday season ended (the peak usage season), oil is down to $3 a gallon. I doubt if I’m the only one who notices oil’s price shoot up every summer, then slither down a bit after, and then climb up in the middle of the winter when the heating bills waft in, and old and poor people who can’t afford the hikes begin to freeze and die in their own homes.

It is a must read for anyone attempting to understand the world around them. There is much to be learnt from it. As I repeatedly say, do not rely on the MSM!

What strikes me as interesting is that the suggested ‘related articles’ do not include one mention of ‘abiotic oil‘, although it certainly is found easily in a Yahoo or Google search.
