Abiotic oil theory

Of course its been proven to be false but knowing how big money can sometimes obscure reality what if the 100 million barrels of oil we use globally every day didnt come from decaying vegetation but is instead a natural by product of the internal chemistry of the Earths dynamic inner engine..
If i was a big oil company this is the very last piece of scientific data that i'd want to be out there.

2. I am reminded of George Carlin's line

"Think about how dumb the average person is - then realize that half of them are dumber than that."

3. Soppose it's true

 

(which it isn't)

The production figures year after year show that we are still consuming oil far faster than it is being replenished. So abiotic or not, the supplies are running out.

Suppose the water pipe leading into your home only supplied 1 gallon per day. Could you run a household on that? It doesn't matter whether there is new oil being created or not if it's not being created fast enough, and it's pretty obvious that it's not being created fast enough. So in the final analysis, even if oil were being produce abiotically, it wouldn't matter.

4. What data

are you using as a measure of replenishment, meaning how can you judge that we are running out of oil without knowing how much oil there is in the first place..

5. See graphs at this link

 

http://ourfiniteworld.com/2007/03/16/oil-quiz-test-your-knowledge/

or any one of a bazillion other peak oil sites.

If we were NOT running out of oil our production numbers wouldn't be plummeting they way they are.

Wake up and smell the reality.

7. As I say to people who try an promote this halfwit theory...

If true, how come the wells in Titusville, PA haven't refilled themselves yet?

8. World wide crude oil production is about 90 million barrels per day.

But I suppose we may be producing close to 100 million barrels per day if we add biofuels and condensates? Also, the theory is wrong...liquid hydrocarbons bear markers showing biogenic origin in shales which have to be exposed to the right temperature and pressure ranges.
