Jerome Corsi is an author with a special focus on energy and all things related to climate change.

Jerome has published 25 books on economics, history, and politics, including six New York Times bestsellers, and was a senior editor at World Net Daily.

He argues that oil is not a fossil fuel.

It is not a result of ancient plant and animal remains, but rather a product of chemical reactions deep within the Earth’s mantle. Hydrocarbons are continuously produced through natural processes involving high heat and pressure, independent of organic matter.

Geological findings support this.

For example, oil deposits have been discovered in regions that lack any significant organic material, such as deep ocean basins or areas devoid of abundant plant and animal life, which contradicts the claim that oil is solely derived from organic matter.

Another supporting argument is “deep” oil reservoirs in which oil is found at depths where it is unlikely that organic matter could have accumulated, suggesting that oil is sourced from deep within the Earth’s mantle.

Oil is a self-replenishing resource and is one of the most abundant liquids on Earth.

To begin with, oil is not a fossil fuel. This is a theory put forth by 18th century scientists. Within 50 years, Germany and France’s scientists had attacked the theory of petroleum’s biological roots.

In fact, oil is abiotic, not the product of long decayed biological matter. And oil, for better or for worse, is not a non-renewable resource. It, like coal, and natural gas, replenishes from sources within the mantle of earth.

Oil fields that have been mined for decades continue to produce oil and don’t run dry.

  • Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, is one of the largest oil fields in North America and has been a significant source of oil production since the late 1970s. In the late 1980s, it was thought that the field had reached its peak production and would soon decline. Subsequently, it didn’t run dry.
  • Cantarell Field, Mexico, was once one of the largest oil fields in the world. Production from Cantarell began declining in the mid-2000s, leading many to believe that the field was on the verge of depletion. Subsequently, it didn’t run dry.
  • East Texas Field, United States, was one of the largest oil fields in the United States during the 1930s. Production declined significantly by the 1960s, and it was widely believed that the field was depleted. Subsequently, it didn’t run dry.

Referring to oil as a fossil fuel in limited supply is an effective mechanism for mass control and compliance, as well as price inflation and government regulation.
