The Truth About Oil

Forget all the protectionist, anti-Arab, environmentalist propaganda against the fuel of industrial civilization, petroleum. Oil is not formed from rotting dinos, and therefore limited. It’s not a “fossil fuel.” The earth produces oil from natural processes deep in our planet. Oil–and natural gas–are constantly being replenished. They represent real renewable energy, unlike, for example, those eery, ear-blasting wind turbine farms. To understand what the regime doesn’t want you to know, read Thomas Gold’s The Deep Hot Biosphere: The Myth of Fossil Fuels.

UPDATE from Mike Brewer:

Dinosaurs on Uranus? Since we’re talkin’ hydrocarbons, methane (a hydrocarbon and fuel) composes huge percentages of the outer planets’ atmospheres. They’re not called “gas giants” for nothin’.

So…how did it get there?

See this, at the bottom. Note that the opening section of the Wiki article emphasizes methane’s importance as a greenhouse gas. The author hasn’t misplaced his talking points!
