Very interesting book all should read!
Amazon Customer
Unfortunately, this book is nothing but an incoherent rambling that fails to present any actual evidence regarding an abiotic origin of oil.
Andrew
A great read about how and why the powers that be have taken control to insure their future control of OIL.

As a petroleum geologist, I was intrigued by the title of this book and the concept of abiotic oil. I was willing to give the suject a chance and keep an open mind, after all, who doesn't like a good conspiracy? Unfortunately, this book is nothing but an incoherent rambling that fails to present any actual evidence regarding an abiotic origin of oil. Simply drilling deeper and offshore is completely unrelated to whether the source of the oil is organic or abiotic. The argument that Hubbert's peak oil curve is outdated is probably true, BUT is a function of improved technology (e.g. hydraulic fracturing) over the years rather than an "unlimited source" of oil from the mantle. Overall, an interesting read...not due to a convincing argument of abiotic oil, but more from the standpoint of viewing into the thought process of a potentially insane person. I know most people will discredit this review because I'm an industry stooge...but for fellow industry stooges interested in entertaining the idea of abiotic oil, if only to learn about a conspiracy theory, don't waste your time.

The author is not a scientist and doesn't have a grasp of the reasons why producing oil artificially is not economical especially since OPEC has a policy to block competition.
What is needed is a solution and less hand-wringing as done by the author.

The Oil Companies and the US Government are robbing the people blind!
The real secrets of Oil and its creation as a natural byproduct of the Earth is finally revealed!
I figured out a variation of the secret of Oil out about six years ago and am so happy to see that a credible
researcher has discovered the facts and printed the facts in a book.
Big Oil is the backbone of the New World Order energy Plan to force the people into a One World Government.

Format: Hardcover
Corsi is not revealing new information when he endorses the theory of abiotic formation of naturally-occurring petroleum hydrocarbons. Unfortunately, since so much of his earlier work is sheer crackpottery, Corsi, by venturing into this subject matter, gives guilt-by-association aid and comfort to those who reject the theory.

Eminent Russian petroleum geologists accept the theory and have published extensively on it. Much of their work can be read at an online site maintained by Gas Resources Corporation of Houston, Texas, and presided over by J.F. Kenney, an American geologist who has co-authored several papers on abiotic formation of oil with the Russian scientists. These are not casual papers; they are peer-reviewed publications, written by members in good standing of Russian and Ukrainian Academies of Science and published in respected scientific journals.

Interestingly and ironically, a Russian scientist, Mikhail Lomontosov, was the father of the theory that all naturally-occurring petroleum hydrocarbons are fossil-derived.

Regrettably, Corsi seems not to have obtained the services of a proofreader. The book is shot through with typographical errors.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Corsi' book contains a wealth of information about the availability and production of oil. A major argument of Dr. Corsi is that oil does not derive from rotting plant life and dinosaur carcases from millions of years ago but is produced by the heat and pressure found inside the earth. He therefore supports the abiotic oil theory of Thomas Gold in his book The Deep Hot Biosphere : The Myth of Fossil Fuels. Thus the quantity of oil is not constrained by the amount of plants that rotted back in the earlier geological ages. Dr. Corsi marshalls a vast amount of information in support of the abiotic oil theory in his book.

The supporting evidence for the abiotic oil theory includes the German developed Fischer Tropsch process which is a process for producing synthetic gasoline and diesel fuel from coal. The United States government at the end of World War II obtained the documentation of this process, but the emphasis of this period became the utilization of the available below ground hydrocarbon resources. Thousands of pages of the proces remain untranslated in archives.

Dr. Corsi also provides information on the scientific experiments and other evidence confirming the abiotic oil theory. He discusses the evidence of Thomas Gold. But yet this evidence has been most often ignored. Instead the public has been bombarded with peak oil theories foretelling the exhaustion of oil supplies because the rotted early plant life is obviously finite. Yet over time these theories have turned out to be untrue. Dr. Corsi details how deep oil drilling and other innovations are producing more oil than ever.

I'm inclined to believe the abiotic oil theory, but I cannot recommend this book. First off, it is short -- a little over 100 pages. But mainly it is superficial. You get no explanation of the abiotic processes and no account of the Nazi research program. There is plenty wailing about 'peak oil' but no attempt to even address the question of whether aboitic production is sufficient to keep up with demand. But the worst part comes at the end when he attempts a hatchet job on alternative energy. Or maybe it was at the very beginning where he tells you that there is no proof of global warming or that use of hydrocarbons affects the climate.
