There's been a debate out there in recent years over "peak oil" and even over whether or not oil even is a "fossil fuel" or whether oil is "abiotic," some sort of natural planetary "lubricant" having nothing to do with decaying dinosaurs and plants. Well, I'm one of those enfants terribles who was a perpetual pain in-the-you-know-what to my teachers growing up. I once asked a teacher in the third grade, who was trying to explain evolution with a picture in a textbook of a giraffe straining to reach tree leaves - you know the old argument: giraffes evolved longer necks to reach tree leaves (seriously folks, that's how bad evolutionary instruction can get) - anyway, I once asked the teacher using the "giraffe argument" why the trees didn't just evolve into taller trees, out of the reach of the giraffes. Well, such exposure of circular argumentation wasn't very welcome, so I had to spend the next hour in the principal's office explaining why I had been "disruptive". I did that: asked the uncomfortable questions - "What if Einstein was wrong?" "What if the Bible is wrong?" What if Darwin is wrong?" - well...I wasn't a popular kid, let me tell you.

Well, yet another example of my youthful gaffs came after one of those films we all saw as kids in school, with an animated section showing dinosaurs dying and decaying into the goo we know as petroleum. To be honest, I found the idea laughable then, and - here comes the heresy - still do. At the time, I asked my science teacher, skepticism dripping from my voice, "Were there really that many dinosaurs?" At the time, of course, I knew nothing about how the Rockefailures interests had promoted the very concept of "fossil fuels" to promote the idea of scarcity...a convenient way to manage prices and perceptions, and keep everyone focused on a physics and finance of closed systems.

This has become the conceptual basis for the idea of "peak oil", essentially an extrapolation from the "bell curve" familiar to any oilman or engineer of what happens when a new field is opened: there is a period of rising production, then falling production as a field is finally exhausted.Extrapolation from one field to all fields leaves a pretty dismal picture: "Peak oil", according to which we have now entered the period of declining petroluem reserves while the world's energy demands are expanding.  And of course, this is more grist in the globalist mill for why we have "too many people" and "not enough energy" with all the globaloney plans for "population reduction."

Funny thing though, such models always assume the linear progression of technology (if they account for it at all), whereas technology is now rendering the whole argument the farrago of nonsense and globaloney it always was:

More Proof the \"We\'re Running Out of Oil\" Crowd Is Dead Wrong

Of course the Chicken Littles and Henny Pennys in the fear-porn crowd that considers itself the global elite will do their best to "explain" all this away; they'll tinker with their arguments and spin, but the fact remains, new technologies will open up long "dead" fields, and new energy technologies and the physics underlying them will ultimately make the whole problem a moot one anyway.  Sit back and enjoy the silence from the banksters and oil companies on this one (have you noticed how "nice" and "cooingly reassuring" their commercials have become lately?). I might even get some popcorn for this one!

    It’s funny to note that those who control the energy /oil also fund the green movement.

    It’s a joke!

    What about that guy Mike Reupert who pushes that peak oil nonsense and at the same time reveals all the evils of the FBI and their drug trade.

    What is he doing? Trying to get awake people to buy his B.S. about oil by telling us about the Govt. being the drug trade business? That’s old news.

    These Ex-Fed /whistleblowers are everywhere these days operating their disinfo campaigns!

    If oil is so valuable, rare, and precious, how come we never see anyone with the name Oilstein or Oilberg? ?

    “globaloney” I love it

  4. Terry Lamb on November 20, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    I’ve always wondered if oil was the “naturally formed lubricant of the Earth”– does removal of oil give rise to more violent Earthquakes, or is it too shallow to have any significance?

    • HAL838 on November 21, 2011 at 6:31 am

      Yes, it does, Terry.

      It is called “fracking” in the vernacular of the oil & gas business
      and how they get the oil / gas to pump up & out.

      Water is forced in and forces up & out the oil or gas, filling the ‘hole.’
      This is extremely unstable and the cause of much recent
      debate. It is also likely the cause of so many ‘sink-holes’
      appearing in droves all over the world.

      You can learn much more by googling
      (or your own favorite search engine)
      just the word, “fracking,” which actually is shortened from ‘fracturing.’
      Now there’s a clue………………….

  5. HAL838 on November 20, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    You know joseph, I was a pain in everybody’s butt, too.

    My father’s favorite line was “How do YOU know that?”

    And yes, with the ever-present raised hand, I asked the forbidden
    questions, too, which were met with a frown and total repetition of
    the same useless answer.
    Although one teacher and I developed a code whereby I
    just got up and quietly went down to the main office and quietly
    sat down where I had become totally ignored, and proceeded
    to my next class when the bell rang.

    Oh yes, I did have something to say here.

    THAT is a distraction debate so you will forget that the burning
    of our natural resources (choke choke)
    is destroying the planet and therefore especially its biosphere.
    Tesla’s free energy could not have come at a worse time.
    All the oil barons were just building their empires.
    Free energy ?
    What are you, NUTS !
    there are so many ways and means to extract totally free and safe,
    naturally replenishing sources, they are being gutted, trashed, bought out
    by the energy barons and lives ruined for daring to try to save the planet.
    I don’t mean solar panels and windmills.

    Unhappy 🙁

      EXACTLY Hal.
      Too much talk of whether there IS… or whether there ISN’t peak oil does become a MAJOR DISTRACTION from the real FACT: WE DON’T NEED OIL and NEVER DID.
      And THEN it becomes interesting!
      At that juncture… or realization…our world opens. The creativity that has been suppressed by inferior minds begins to pound the door down.
      We don’t NEED OIL… NOW WHAT?

      THAT should be the real question: NOW WHAT?

      These reports and discussions need to clarify and EMPHASIZE the POLITICAL and ECONOMIC “fairytale” of OIL and the PROPAGANDA that goes along with it’s continuing discussions. It is a fabrication. And without the disclaimer which makes that clear… we are still “thinking in the box”.

      I believe that was the point which was made.

      • Lady LA LA on November 21, 2011 at 6:04 am

        One more thing… and this is the MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT…

        This mad quest for oil which is based on nothing but greed… is destroying our earth …. pollution of the air, the seas, the land and destroying our wildlife.
        And ourselves.

        WE are allowing this to continue by engaging in too much discussion about what is NOT IMPORTANT.

    “I might even get some popcorn for this one!”- you deserve more, Dr. Farrell- hopefully a T-bone steak at least! 🙂

    if I recall correctly, there’s a YouTube video where L. Fletcher Prouty (I know this name rings a bell with you) speaks about oil not only being abiotic but no ‘fossil’ has been discovered lower than 16k feet and oil drilling begins at 20k feet-

    please correct me if my memory does not serve me correctly-

    Larry in Germany

    • HAL838 on November 21, 2011 at 6:52 am

      Prouty, I believe, was actually in the Armed Services and a
      member of the so-called, ‘Establishment’ at one time.
      So he knows lots of garbage, but not quite enough.

      The dinosaurs are used as an example because everyone
      is familiar with the fact that they were extremely large, but tend
      to forget that they thrived for over 100 MILLION years.
      They went belly-up 65 million years ago.
      that there have been several ‘extinction’ events and lots of
      other life forms throughout the natural history of planet earth.
      That history also tells us that their have been different types
      of cataclysms (with slow changes in between) causing
      many ‘things’ to get buried and destroyed.

      I have to tend toward calling you on this one, Joseph,
      and I’m quite familiar with the debate.
      It is quite possible that oil is a fossil fuel calling card.
      All that life from Earth’s beginning !!
      yes, it would have gotten buried that deep…
      quite probable indeed.

      • HAL838 on November 21, 2011 at 8:27 pm

        Oil has been / is, called “black gold” and so it has been
        for those who have profited billions from it in the past century.
        It belongs where it is found, not in the atmosphere and oceans.

        It is neither ‘black’ or like ‘gold.’

        [PS: “nor” would be a double negative;
        I don’t care how popular it’s gotten.]

        It is more precious than that. Like its carbon sibling,
        diamonds, it needs pressure to form life’s endgame.

        I don’t know what further role it plays in the cycle of life.
        What I do know is that it belongs
        (for reasons that need more research on my part)
        right where it is found. Not in our air and oceans.

        Like its other (carbon) sibling, coal, oil needs pressure
        to form (into natural diamonds in that case.)
        It is all that is left of all the life it once was.

        Fresh ‘oil’ is pressed out of plants and some animals
        and is good for you, often taken as a health supplement.
        Olive oil is prized for cookng.

        Oil runs deep because it needs the pressure to crush
        (press) all the tissue and bones of life the Earth has seen.
        It is NOT “abiotic.” It is NOT a product of inorganic stuff
        made by the planet.

        It is you, me and all the life that has ever been on this planet.
        It is life’s endgame. After that, I don’t know; but we have to stop
        taking it from the depths to which its life cycle has put it.

        When, at some point, I do more research
        (sounds interesting, actually, although biology has not been
        the most interesting science to me)
        I will share that, too.

        In the meantime, Joseph, if I have wetted your own vast
        appetite for knowledge, perhaps you can share what you might learn.

        No, that is NOT a challenge unless you do get curious.
        And I know you would share.
        That’s what you do.
        That’s what you are.

        What good is it to learn without sharing?

    While I do believe in evolution, due to the evidence I have seen, I never thought of how silly the giraffe argument is. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    Though I have asked myself, “Were there really THAT many dinosaurs?” the answer to this is “Yes” inasmuch as dinosaurs inhabited the Earth, at the very least, for pretty much the entire Mesozoic era, something like 175,000,000 years. That’s a lot of dinosaurs, probably enough.

    That being said, my personal opinion is that oil is a product of geologic processes. Otherwise Saturn’s moon Titan would surely have required a lot of “dinosaurs” to plod around on its surface for a similar period of time to produce all the “petroleum” there. And this ain’t so.

    SOURCE: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/cassini/media/cassini-20080213.html

    I am aware of various news reports that there are enough petroleum reserves in Alaska and in the north Midwest, not to mention offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, to supply all the petroleum consumption of Amerika many times over. This either just isn’t being exploited or what is being exploited is being sent overseas to places like Japan.

    So I am of the opinion that a gallon of gas, which has considerable taxes on it already (going to pay the Looters…uh…”Elites” for the enormous debt that we DON’T owe them),…an Amerikan gallon of gas should presently be going for something like 10 or 15 cents….in 2011 dollars.

      Darwinian evolution has come under attack recently
      by is being called, evolutionary ‘flux.’
      Spurts of advance directed by the [living] Universe
      rather than the touch & go of random selection
      and accidental mutation.

      Does that sound better?
      It does to me.
      Especially since we are at a ‘flux’ point !

    Greg Palast, in his new book Vultures Picin, says “we’re not running out of oil, just cheap oil.”

  9. Robert Barricklow on November 20, 2011 at 9:32 am

    When F. William Engdahl was writing his outstanding Century of War trilogy he came to the abotic side of the equation. There is even a science fiction book, Blood of the Moon: A Thriller by Richard Gazala, that has the abiotic theory central to its plot.

  10. Steve on November 20, 2011 at 9:31 am

    Funny, I remember that giraffe argument from high school science class as well. Something about ridiculing the supposed previous version of evolution theory (lamarchan sp?) vs. Darwinian. The latter being the obvious unprovoked, genious, virgin birth idea, springing from the head of the great man, like that owley chick from her dad iopiter… what an incredible genius was that charlesey warelsey… to think of such a wonderfully originalk idea, all on his own, with no prompting from say generations of inbred ancestors and their masonic brethren? He shure showed that Lamaarch, eh?

    The funny thing is, I seem to remember most of the people in those classes, back in the day, went away confused, not even understanding the concept enough to differentiate between the two theories. Or that they were “theories” in themselves. So, the facts would be, animal’s neck seem to get longer over time. Thus animal’s with longer necks are naturally selected through breeding and procreate more often. Thus animals with longer necks become predominant in the genepool. Not, animals reach for higher branches, thus stretching their necks and passing those genes down to offspring. People in my class came away believing that kind of rubbish was possible. Considering that, an actual critique of the more reasonable, or at least more plausible, Darwinian theory would be totally out of reach.

    This is the same problem we will run into on any topic of substance. People would rather be told what to believe on a matter. Just make the rhetoric sound good, and hit us with lots of emotional arguments.

  11. Steve Campbell on November 20, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Mr. Frith,
    You opine that Dr. Farrell’s article promotes the ‘drill baby drill’ attitude and ‘pressing ahead with consumer fetish capitalism and degrading the environment and ecology at any expense.’ I did not read that into the article. Even if abiotic oil is false (even though I think it is true) and oil is a fossil fuel (which I believe it is not), there is more than enough evidence that we are not running out of oil anytime soon. Dr. Farrell points out that the oil companies are brainwashing the public for ulterior motives. That is, the oil companies are in collusion with the power-elite, who are pressing the New World Order agenda for population reduction. Dr. Farrell also alludes to the fact of new technologies (free energy) that would make the need for continued drilling of oil unnecessary, thus reducing the pollution and destruction of the ecology.

    • Ridge on November 20, 2011 at 1:56 pm

      People have been demanding electric cars for decades and nothing significant has happened, nor will it. GM paid lip service with the EV1, then recalled and quickly crushed them.

      If oil costs more, they will find a way to make cars run on the smell of an oily rag, all while maintaining their profits selling more expensive oil.

      It is also about maintaining the car industry. It is far more profitable and employs a hell of a lot of people, to sell cars with complicated engines, rather than simple batteries on wheels. Think about all those moving parts, they can sell spare parts for….

      As for this abiotic oil, if it is true and the dead plant/dead dinosaur theory is false, then we have been looking for oil in all the wrong places. Certain elements want us to think the only oil left in significant quantities is in the Middle East. If we all think that is true, then we will support these never ending wars for Israel without question.

      So again we have people with a strong interest in maintaining the status quo. They will never allow an impartial investigation, because of the implications. If oil can be found anywhere in large quantities, then what relevance does the Middle East have?

  12. Charles Frith on November 20, 2011 at 6:05 am

    I’ve moved over the abiotic oil arguments lately but I think posts like this encourage lazy ass thinking along the lines of ‘great, lets press ahead with consumer fetish capitalism and degrading the environment and ecology at any expense’. It’s the drill baby drill of just one more fat line of coke sweetheart and I’ll give up.
