A New Theory - The Earth is a Perpetual Oil Generating Machine! (The last thing the elites want you to know)!

According to scientist Thomas Gold, the earth is not running out of oil as common propoganda preaches, but is in fact, a perpetual oil machine.

In his book, The Deep Hot Biosphere, Gold puts forth compelling evidence that the idea the earth is "running on empty" is a scientific myth being perpetuated by the oil industry.

"Surface chauvinism," proclaims Gold, is why we've developed such a lopsided view of life on Earth. Whales and redwood trees we can relate to.

In his book, he marries a "deep-earth gas" theory he proposed in 1977 with a "deep hot biosphere" theory he published in 1992. The synthesis contains three heated revisions of Earth history.

First, the origin of petroleum is nonbiological! And petroleum pervades much of the Earth's upper crust, not just the sedimentary rocks where petroleum companies hunt for riches.

Second, life on the planet originated not in shallow sea waters but in deep sea vents, and today the entire crust of the Earth, to a depth of several miles, is populated by living creatures--the great bulk of Earthly life.

Third, the non-biological hydrocarbons continue to leak up and to replenish oil fields. Our supply is not limited to the next fifty years. So with one sweeping hypothesis, Gold single-handedly proposes a new location and mechanism for life's origin, and claims we may continue to mine petroleum well beyond its now-predicted extinction.

Why burn oil at all

when we can run our cars on water, use magnets and tap into the free ethereal energy.

We learned that in elementary school

For real. I bet they don't teach that anymore.

Been trying to tell people

Been trying to tell people this since Christ left Chicago!!! Same thing with the global freeze thaw cycle...

Bakken has 25 times more oil that first estimated!

3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana’s Bakken Formation—25 Times More Than 1995 Estimate

New geologic models applied to the Bakken Formation, advances in drilling and production technologies, and recent oil discoveries have resulted in these substantially larger technically recoverable oil volumes. About 105 million barrels of oil were produced from the Bakken Formation by the end of 2007.


At what price of the barrel

will producing the Bakken be profitable?

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

Technically recoverable oil resources are those

producible using currently available technology and industry practices.

Here is what claims to be a world assessment of oil resosurces. (Propaganda)?


didn't see much on that page...

do you have a more specific link?

There are probably hundreds of small time independent oil companies in the US capable of drilling up the Bakken... what's keeping them from it?

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

Maybe government and environmental regulations!

Look under the USGS link above. It says a Senator has asked for a study. Study is "code" for we are stopping this for as long as possible!


the salient question....

and guess what: as I said long ago, the 95% of US oil companies who do not deep water drill

will likely see the value of their reserves skyrocket as a result of the misguided moratorium

and god help us with the extraction methodology ramifications (if we think there is no environmental impact to the recovery processes)

cee cee

The earth is not flat anymore

Oil can form from:

Carbon + Water + heat +pressure.

And also from decaying organic matter with heat/pressure.

What the oil companies fear even more than abiotic oil!

Tesla's World Wide Wireless Electricity System!

I. Tesla’s inventions had already changed the world on several occasions, most notably when he developed modern alternating current technology. He had also won fame for his victory over Thomas Edison in the well-publicized “battle of currents,” where he proved that his alternating current was far more practical and safe than Edison-brand direct current. Soon his technology dominated the world’s developing electrical infrastructure, and by 1900 he was widely regarded as America’s greatest electrical engineer. This reputation was reinforced by his other major innovations, including the Tesla coil, the radio transmitter, and fluorescent lamps.

II. In 1891, Nikola Tesla gave a lecture for the members of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers in New York City, where he made a striking demonstration. In each hand he held a gas discharge tube, an early version of the modern fluorescent bulb. The tubes were not connected to any wires, but nonetheless they glowed brightly during his demonstration. Tesla explained to the awestruck attendees that the electricity was being transmitted through the air by the pair of metal sheets which sandwiched the stage. He went on to speculate how one might increase the scale of this effect to transmit wireless power and information over a broad area, perhaps even the entire Earth. As was often the case, Tesla’s audience was engrossed but bewildered.

III. But amidst such dramatic discharges, Tesla confirmed that the Earth itself could be used as an electrical conductor, and verified some of his suspicions regarding the conductivity of the ionosphere. In later tests, he recorded success in an attempt to illuminate light bulbs from afar, though the exact conditions of these experiments have been lost to obscurity. In any case, Tesla became convinced that his dream of world-wide wireless electricity was feasible.


from my perspective exactly what the ELITES

would want...

as this would justify a continuing dependence on oil

rather than supporting alternative fuel sourcing/development and new technologies....

just my personal opinion....but my guess would be: this theory suits the elite agenda quite nicely

cee cee

Sure, keep us addicted to

Sure, keep us addicted to oil, it's like crack for the economy.

As long as we're stupid/brainwashed enough to keep believing alternative energy is a commie conspiracy...

But don't take my word for it. I'm one of "THEM".

I am out of touch with most Americans precisely because I am not out of touch with reality.

We could still run out

If an Abiotic source is proven.
How fast is oil produced? What are the source materials?
Of course, what if the theory is completely wrong?
Do we use it as if it will never run out, or do we pay attention until the theory is proven correct?

"I don't endorse anything they say"
~Ron Paul On the 911 Truth movement.

The fact is, you and I don't know, we can only speculate.

I believe US satelitte technology has found the major pools in the world and only a select few have access to that information.

However, I have been hearing about the energy shortage for 30 years but it never happens, just like the cars that could get 100 mpg, it never happens.

If Exxon and BP know there are vast resources would they let it become public knowledge or would they prefer to conceal that information, then try to meter out the supply and keep the prices as high as possible for as long as possible.

"satelitte technology "

Ralph, I'd like to learn more about finding oil with satellites. I'm skeptical that this works... if so, I have to wonder why Chevron, Exxon, BP, etc. drill so many dry holes in the Gulf of Mexico.

From my experience, we find oil in about 1 in 5 or 6 wells. If that technology exists, they sure ain't using it!

30 years ago we had no idea we'd be finding oil in 10,000' of water in the GoM, and down to 35k' TD.

With learning and technology maybe we have just delayed the peak oil point?

BUT... We will never run out of oil. At the current rate of consumption, though, I do think supplies could get tight eventually.

Oil exploration via satelitte!

Ole Baltazar’s map shows variations in gravitational force across the surface of the Earth and knowledge about these small variations is a valuable tool in oil exploration. Subterranean oil deposits are encapsulated in relatively light materials such as limestone and clay and because these materials are light, they have less gravitational force than the surrounding materials.

Ole Baltazar’s map is based on satellite measurements and has a hitherto unseen level of detail and accuracy. With this map in your hands, it is, therefore, easier to find new deposits of oil underground.

The gravitational map from DTU Space is unique on account of its resolution of only 2 km and the fact that it covers both land and sea regions. Oil companies use the map in the first phases of oil exploration. Previously, interesting areas were typically selected using protracted, expensive measurements from planes or ships. The interesting areas appear clearly on the map and the companies can, therefore, plan their exploration much more efficiently.



Hmmm...still skeptical

"Subterranean oil deposits are encapsulated in relatively light materials such as limestone and clay"

Oil reservoirs are nearly always sand, definitely not clay and usually not limestone. Limestone, if vuggy or fractured can be a reservoir, but in general layers of good old sand are the reservoirs of choice in most places. That statement tells me the author is not particularly geologically savvy.

In the GoM they still use seismic boats, which I'm SURE give much better detail than anything from a satellite.

Perhaps I misunderstand something, but seems like we would hear more about satellites in the field if they were used extensively.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

ignore the wizard below

as the science daily article does NOT imply that the technology replaces detailed mapping/survey/assessment...nor does it IMPLY all that certain readers wish to ascribe

as usual, some offer valid position/information and some do not

ho hum

cee cee

I find it funny that such a self proclaimed

expert has such an amount of time on her hands that she can frequent the Daily Paul and debate and or discuss topics with such mental retards without Phd's such as myself.

I really think you should start a post of what people should do instead of give your expert opinion per ad nauseum if you really think that my responses don't deserve merit.

So science daily isn't a source


Cee Cee agrees with it.. Humm..

The last thing the upper elite would want would

be for the technology to be available to everyone. If they have the goose that lays the golden eggs, I don't think they are going to want everyone else to have it as well.

If we have Google maps, consider what the military has!

I see no evidence that

Chevron, BP, etc. have this technology... if they do, then it's not that great... I participate in lots of dry holes in the GoM!

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

don't understand this

what technology to be available to everyone?

cee cee

If the elite has access to the satellite

technology that can find the big pockets of oil, they are certainly not going to be telling everyone else about it.


aren't the oil companies THE ELITE that most of us here hate so much? If oil companies aren't the elite, who is?

'Cause there's a monster on the loose


then that assumes all the oil & gas companies are part of the elites, right....

so who would be left to tell about it?

just confused (as usual)

cee cee

second Bug Man

WISHING such technology could be developed...

would seem to save hundreds of millions in exploration costs....

IF such technology could be perfected to a degree of certainty: surely would be welcomed

can only assume the industry would surely appreciate and employ same (and benefits could accrue to we "consumers")

cee cee
