Progressives Clinging to the Peak Oil Myth

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 4, 2008

It is getting warmer outside, the birds are singing, and what are Asheville’s Progressives up to? Screening movies about Peak Oil (tonight), and planning discussion panels (next week) about the the same.

This is silly. Oil is produced from many sources, not just organic materials. Tiny Titan’s Hydrocarbon reserves dwarf what is on the earth, and I doubt very much dinosaurs and jungles are (or were) to be found a billion miles from the sun.

The inorganic reserves of hydrocarbons below 30,000 feet in the earth’s crust could even dwarf the amount of water in the oceans of the earth. (Not that we could ever use all of it, it is comforting to know that oceans of hydrocarbons are waiting to be tapped, should we ever need them to power our civilization. The Russians are already doing so, and have passed Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest producer of oil.
You can read more about abiotic oil at Al Fin.

You know, the lefties are so wrong about so much, it’s no wonder that they try their best to drown out the conservatives who are telling the truth!
