Recently I presented here an article on filmmaker Marijn Poels’s new documentary that featured former Princeton physicist Freeman Dyson, who stated that the theories of climate science are “very confused” and that “the models are wrong”.
But perhaps the most fascinating point the film brings up was presented at the very end: A Russian scientist believes and supports how the Earth’s supply of fossil fuels is in fact virtually endless.
The part of interest begins at 1:18:50.
The notion of fossil fuels being scarce, and thus worthy of high prices, was first initiated by the business savvy John D. Rockefeller way back in 1892, where he paid a group of scientists to push hydrocarbon fuel as a limited resource, and so making it more expensive.
Fossil fuels come from below earth’s crust!
However, the Dutch filmmaker Poels meets with Russian scientist Prof. Dr. Vladimir Kutcherov who presents (1:21:00) his “controversial point of view”, that hydrocarbons are generated at the depths of the earth, 100 to 200 km below the surface, “and then migrate into the earth’s crust and form oil and gas deposits”, and thus virtually infinite – should the theory be true.
They are not the remnants of of old fossilized plant life as we are often told.
Kutcherov explains that carbon and hydrogen elements are under high pressure and temperature just beneath the earth’s crust and form into hydro-carbons that seep to the surface of the earth. Image cropped from: The Uncertainty Has Settled (1:22:13).
Kutcherov says his hypothesis is backed by high pressure experiments, and he believes “there are no doubts that hydrocarbons and natural gas particles could be generated at the sphere of our planet at depths of 100 to 200 kilometers.”
Old oil fields come back
And when asked by Poels if that means the supply is inifinite, Kutcherov answers: “Yes, indeed.”
And when asked about wells and oil fields running out, Kutcherov comments:
People take oil very quickly, and if we will come back to this oil field in 50 – 60 years, we could see that new oil came to this oil field.”
The Russian professor adds that this has all been confirmed by samples taken from oil fields in Russia: “After certain time, new oil came in old oil fields and this oil could be only from the depth.”
Prof. Kutcherov and others have published a set of papers in PNAS, Nature Geoscience, Review of Geophysics, where “the possibility of abiogenic synthesis of complex hydrocarbon systems was convincingly demonstrated”.
Kept silent by media
He then says that calculation estimate that man only uses 15% of this and that “we don’t need to find new oil fields or gas fields”. All that is needed is to improve the efficiency with how we use the energy.
According to Prof. Kutcherov, this is all being kept silent by the media.
