Addressing the theory and evidence that oil is not solely of organic origin, but that there may be another mode of origin as well from deeper in the crust, involving magma.
There is a substantial body of evidence to support this theory. That does not negate, however, the quest for getting away from dependence on fossil fuels. The greenhouse gasses produced by the burning of such will continue to be a pressing matter that must be addressed. Now that the world has achieved a consciousness about how we treat our planet, this news that we are not so far from depleting our oil reserves is a welcome breath of fresh air, removing some of the panic effect that can foster unrest. -- Sterling D. Allan

The Origin of Oil -- Leroy Fletcher Prouty Jr. Colonel, USAF - In 1892, a scientific convention declared oil to be of organic origin because of its C, O, H composition. The resulting scarcity mentality tied into the idea of limited "fossil fuels" has served the industry well to drive up the price; even though they routinely harvest oil well below 16,000 feet, which is the deepest that fossils have ever been found.

- Oil > Abiotic >
Deep bacteria provide scientific basis for magma oil - "This deep biosphere is a very important discovery," says Rolf Pedersen of the University of Bergen, Norway. He points out that the reactions that produce oil and gas abiotically inside the crust could happen in the mantle, meaning life may be thriving deeper yet. (New Scientist; November 18, 2010)
- Fossils From Animals And Plants Are Not Necessary For Crude Oil And Natural Gas - Researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden have managed to prove that fossils from animals and plants are not necessary for crude oil and natural gas to be generated. They simulated the process involving pressure and heat that occurs naturally in the inner layers of the earth, showing that the process generates hydrocarbon, the primary component in oil and natural gas. (Science Daily; Sep. 12, 2009)
- Hydrocarbons in the deep Earth? - Scientists have debated whether some hydrocarbons could have been created deeper in the Earth and formed without organic matter. Now, they have found that ethane and heavier hydrocarbons can be synthesized under the pressure-temperature conditions of the upper mantle -the layer of Earth under the crust and on top of the core.

- Renewable Coal, Oil and Gas - Hydrocarbons of Geological Origin - Dr. Thomas Gold contended that oil is not a limited resource, and that oil, natural gas and coal, are not so-called "fossil fuels." Reality is probably a combination of both. The operative question is: In what proportions? (Sepp Hasslberger; Nov. 6, 2008)

- Titan's Organic Hydrocarbons Dwarf Earth's Oil Reserves - Data from the Cassini probe orbiting Saturn has shown that the ringed planet's moon has "hundreds of times more liquid hydrocarbons than all the known oil and natural gas reserves on Earth." (Wired; Feb. 13, 2008)
- 'Fossil fuel' theory takes hit with NASA finding - NASA scientists are about to publish conclusive studies showing abundant methane of a non-biologic nature is found on Saturn's giant moon Titan, a finding that validates a new book's contention that oil is not a fossil fuel.

Other Abiotic Oil Articles
- Is tectonic activity the real source of oil? - The late astrophysicist Thomas Gold, in "The Deep Hot Biosphere," theorized that oil is actually produced continuously within the earth by microbial processes and pressure from tectonic plates rather than by decomposition, as long believed. The recent Russian oil finds at depths of up to 40,000 ft tend to support this theory. (AutoblogGreen; Apr. 20, 2008)

- Russia Proves 'Peak Oil' is a Misleading Scam - In 1970 the Russians started drilling Kola SG-3, an exploration well which finally reached a staggering world record depth of 40,230 feet. Since then, Russian oil majors including Yukos have quietly drilled more than 310 successful super-deep oil wells, and put them into production. Last Year Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest single oil producer, and is now set to completely dominate global oil production and sales for the next century.
- 'Oil Shock' Looming - What are the Alternatives? - "My conclusion is that there is much about oil (and natural gas) that we have not been told, including how much of the stuff is available, and how it continually develops, even to this day." At the end of the article is a list of sites and articles on peak oil, but the interesting part is a second list of the contrary view -- could oil reserves be virtually unlimited?

- In situ Production of Inorganic-Derived Petroleum - Scientists in the US have witnessed the production of methane under the conditions that exist in the Earth's upper mantle for the first time. The experiments demonstrate that hydrocarbons could be formed inside the Earth via simple inorganic reactions -- and not just from the decomposition of living organisms as conventionally assumed -- and might therefore be more plentiful than previously thought.

For example, Con #2: Oil is renewable; Con #3: Global Warming on cooked data; Con #4: The biofuel push results in deforestation, oxygen depletion, and dead zones in the oceans from nitrogen and other pollutants.
