Where is the science that says the Earth is not making new oil constantly.
Even if the earth is making new oil constantly the scientific consensus is that using it will lead us to a pretty rapid and ugly experience called mass starvation and ultimately extinction.
Nonsense like this is why I have quit paying attention to people who spout "scientific consensus." "Scientific consensus" during the time of Malthus had the planet fully starved and dead long before now. "Scientific consensus" when I was in school was that pollution was going to trigger the next ice age. Science is about asking questions and posing possible solutions. When "science " becomes dogma you can bet there is a power play involved with winners and losers in the offing. At that point, go looking for the money.
