Comment on Alice diesel for less than $1? by Michael Dean.

The prevailing explanation for the formation of oil and gas deposits is that they are the remains of plant and animal life that died millions of years ago and were compressed by heat and pressure over the years.
The abiotic theory of oil formation continues to receive attention due to the work of retired Cornell astronomy professor Thomas Gold.
Gold’s theory of oil formation is that hydrogen and carbon, under high temperatures and pressures found in the mantle during the formation of the earth, form hydrocarbon molecules which have gradually leaked up to the surface through cracks in rocks.
Do people really think dinosaurs and trees managed to die only in certain spots and in vast quantities?

I’m led to believe the Government’s Bizsecure program was too onerous regarding paperwork that few took it up. That’s why no new money was allocated for this initiative. They are using left over money allocations from bizsecure. Happy to be corrected.
