A shocking investigation revealing why greedy oil companies are lying to the American people.
At the end of World War II, U.S. intelligence agents confiscated thousands of Nazi documents on what was known as the “Fischer-Tropsch Process”—a series of equations developed by German chemists unlocking the secrets of how oil is formed. When the Nazis took power, Germany had resolved to develop enough synthetic oil to wage war successfully, even without abundant national oil reserves. For decades, these confiscated German documents remained largely ignored in a United States where petro-geologists and petro-chemists were convinced that oil was a “fossil fuel” created by ancient decaying biological debris. 
Clearly, big U.S. oil companies had no financial interest in explaining to the American people that oil was a natural product made on a continual basis deep within the earth. If there were only so many fossils in geological time, there could only be so much oil. Big oil could then charge more for a finite, rapidly disappearing resource than for a natural, renewable, and probably inexhaustible one. 
The Great Oil Conspiracy explains how Stalin at the end of World War II demanded his petro-geologists “dig deeper” when petro-scientists in the United States had determined that the Soviet Union, like Germany, lacked national oil reserves. Russia today has challenged Saudi Arabia for the lead in oil production and exportation. Once oil is understood as an abundantly available resource, there is no reason hydro-carbon fuels cannot indefinitely propel the development and production of cheap energy reserves the United States needs to maintain its dominant position in the emerging global economy.


  • A PhD wrote this?

    By DT Armstrong
    Filled with mistakes similar to a high school science report. eg. The author discusses a windmill generating electricity with a wind traveling at 10 miles per second. I know he meant meters/sec. But come on, doesn't anyone proofread anymore, or is it just to sell parc.

    It must takes hours and hours to read a book when you let grammatical or punctuation errors trip you up. Or to pen a long review with no remarks as to content of the book. Just read fast like I do, pay attention to content and then write a review that's helpful to potential buyers
  • Great material, but in DIRE need of basic proof reading

    By SmoothNoodleMap
    Lack of proof reading will undermine the credibility of this excellent material with some casual readers. It's easy low-hanging fruit that should have been addresses before e-publication. It gives me the impression it was rushed for some deadline. Hopefully, it will be scoured and corrected before hard-copy publication. There is plenty of time (heck, I already have tons of corrections starting from chapter 2 through to the end). To get a feel for the kinds of errors that should have been caught, read this review more carefully; there is at least one error that should be caught by basic proof reading. Many of the errors I found are far more egregious!
