Abiotic Fuel

Richard Cronin

As recently as the mid-1990s, hydrocarbons derived from geochemical conditions in the Lithosphere and Upper Mantle (abiotic hydrocarbons ) were still a topic of debate. The literature since that time has exploded in the knowledge of abiotic hydrocarbons. Given the sad state of Science in the U.S., most of this literature is published elsewhere. A simple search in Google Scholar for "Abiotic hydrocarbons”, limited to the year 2021 will flood your computer screen.

The surest way to identify someone who is scientifically uninformed is someone who still uses the term "fossil fuels” or states that we should "keep it in the ground” (Senator Elizabeth Warren, D - MA).

Coal is derived much as a fluid coking unit in a refinery or charcoal produced by wood in a oxygen-deficient kiln. Boyce and Nelson of Stanford have determined that fallen trees of the Early Carboniferous were decomposed by fungi, termites, and borer insects — the same as today.

Methane is produced in unimaginable quantities and seeps out everywhere, principally in the oceans, where the crust is thinnest, yet we have insane policies trying to staunch every wisp of natural gas while it exists in parts per billion in the atmosphere. Methane and oil seep out of the planet in such prodigious quantities as to dwarf human activity.

The energy policies of the United States are driven by ignorance, Political Science, and cronyism. Yet Americans shiver in the dark and are crushed by energy prices.



Tim adds:

The discovery of methane on Mars was promoted as evidence of life there. I wrote about it at American Thinker back then.

A lot of Alarmist types sneered at me for saying this was evidence of solar induced planetary warming; they refused to believe the methane could be abiotic. But I think it was clearly evidence for both abioitic generation of methane and of solar activity warming the planet.
