"Jerry Corsi may just be the best investigative journalist working today and this incredible book proves it."—Roger Stone, New York Times bestselling author 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 "Jerry Corsi may just be the best investigative journalist working today and this incredible book proves it."—Roger Stone, New York Times bestselling author 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.

    Abiotic oil. Ever heard of it? How about "fossil fuel?" Everybody knows about fossil fuel-- formed from decayed plants and animals hundreds of millions of years ago. It's a fact, right? Um, no. It's not. It's TAUGHT as a fact, but it is in fact still a theory. No one has yet been able to recreate oil out of decayed plants and animals. That sticky point, alone, keeps "fossil fuel" in the "theory" category. On the other hand, have you ever heard of synthetic oil? You might even put it in your auto Abiotic oil. Ever heard of it? How about "fossil fuel?" Everybody knows about fossil fuel-- formed from decayed plants and animals hundreds of millions of years ago. It's a fact, right? Um, no. It's not. It's TAUGHT as a fact, but it is in fact still a theory. No one has yet been able to recreate oil out of decayed plants and animals. That sticky point, alone, keeps "fossil fuel" in the "theory" category. On the other hand, have you ever heard of synthetic oil? You might even put it in your automobile. Seventy-five or so years ago, Nazi German was powering their war machine with synthetic oil. In 1951 the Russian scientific community rejected the notion of "fossil" origins of oil and advanced the theory that the origins of oil were "a-biotic," formed deep in the earth through chemical processes. This book dares to challenge the "settled science" of fossil fuel and explore another possibility. Wouldn't it change the way we see energy if, indeed, oil is actually a renewable resource that the earth is constantly producing deep underground? This theory would certainly explain why, suddenly, scientists have discovered what may possibly turn out to be a larger reservoir of oil under the central United States than exists in Saudi Arabia. This discovery is estimated to supply enough oil to take care of energy needs for the next hundred years or more. What about "global warming?" you may ask. At least as many scientists believe it's a hoax as those who beleive it to be true. I don't know about you, but I'm beginning to wonder if the scientists in this country haven't been bought out by the politicians. They don't seem to be interested in new information, especially when it goes against their established conclusions. Jerome Corsi's book is heavily sourced and definitely worth reading...particularly if you don't think that fossil theory makes a whole lot of sense. My only caviat is that the electronic version is full of typos. It didn't go through a very robust proofreading process. Nevertheless, the substance of the information is worth muddling through the occasional convoluted sentence structure or misspelled word. Hopefully the print editions are better. The book is fairly short - seven chapters in all plus an introduction.

    To be honest The Great Oil Conspiracy is poorly written and edited. That being said, it does raise an interesting question. The prevailing theory today of the oil and gas industry is that the bulk of our carbon-based fuels (coal, oil and gas) derive from the degradation, over millions of years, of biological materials, e.g., dead animals, ferns, algae, plankton, forest, etc. An alternate, less accepted theory is that the bulk of our carbon-based fuels are abiotic in origin and created naturally To be honest The Great Oil Conspiracy is poorly written and edited. That being said, it does raise an interesting question. The prevailing theory today of the oil and gas industry is that the bulk of our carbon-based fuels (coal, oil and gas) derive from the degradation, over millions of years, of biological materials, e.g., dead animals, ferns, algae, plankton, forest, etc. An alternate, less accepted theory is that the bulk of our carbon-based fuels are abiotic in origin and created naturally deep within the earth’s crust. Whether the earth’s supply of oil and gas is finite and comes from the degradation of organic materials, e.g., plankton, algae, plants, etc. (biotic) or is near infinite and is a natural product of the earth’s structures having little or nothing to do with degradation of organic materials (abiotic) is a fascinating question. The party line of course is that carbon-based fuels (oil and gas) are the product of degradation of organic materials and are finite. The premise of The Great Oil Conspiracy is that this theory is flawed. Part of the evidence is the massive synthetic carbon-based fuels program that Germany used before and during World War II to fuel their economy and military. Germany has abundant coal reserves, but little to no oil and natural gas. An interesting quote “Nobody has yet synthesized crude oil or coal in the lab from a beaker of algae or ferns.”. The abiotic theory of carbon-based fuels would turn on its head the accepted thinking that carbon-based fuels (coal, oil and gas) are a finite dwindling resource of which we eventually run out. Geologists have been predicting that we will run out of carbon-based fuels for the last hundred years and so far, all those predictions have been wrong. Throw into this mix, today the climate-change crowd has taken over this debate and anyone who does not go along with the prevalent thinking is labeled a “denier”. I’m not ready to jump onto the abiotic oil and gas theory based upon one book, but I’m not ready to ignore it either. Science should be pursued, regardless of where it takes you.

    The author of this book, Jerome Corsi, was (might still be) a birther and is associated with a host of right-wing conspiracy theories. Thus, I take him cum grano salis. Still, there is some debate about the origins of oil and gas so I thought I'd look into the abiotic origin hypothesis. The political background to abioticism is that therefore there may be no limits to petrochemical resources and thus no limits to economic growth--except suspect limits imposed by governments in the interests of po The author of this book, Jerome Corsi, was (might still be) a birther and is associated with a host of right-wing conspiracy theories.

The political background to abioticism is that therefore there may be no limits to petrochemical resources and thus no limits to economic growth--except suspect limits imposed by governments in the interests of powerful business players. Corsi sees the environmental movement as a smokescreen for such meddling in the markets. The "Nazi discovery" touted in the title concerns the conversion of coal into liquid fuels, not, so far as I could see, the creation of such fuels from inorganic sources. Indeed, there is actually very little about Nazi discoveries in this book (the reference probably is seen as a selling point for the book), much of which consists simply of 32 pages of hard to read photos and documents).

    Incredible as it may seem, this book makes a compelling case that oil is not a fossil fuel resulting from the decay of prehistoric plants and animals. The author cites scientific findings that claim oil is created naturally in the mantle of the earth, making it for all practical purposes an unlimited resource.

    This unfortunate book should never have been published. It's so horribly bad that I'm actually embarrassed for the publisher. Clearly, Skyhorse Publshing doesn't use fact-checkers. There is no index but if there were there could only be one entry: howler, which would list all of the pages in the book. Perhaps the saddest howler was when Corsi argued that oil and gas couldn't be fossil fuels since plants and animals never lived at the depths in the Earth where oil and gas are found. Anyone who pass This unfortunate book should never have been published. It's so horribly bad that I'm actually embarrassed for the publisher. Clearly, Skyhorse Publshing doesn't use fact-checkers. There is no index but if there were there could only be one entry: howler, which would list all of the pages in the book. Perhaps the saddest howler was when Corsi argued that oil and gas couldn't be fossil fuels since plants and animals never lived at the depths in the Earth where oil and gas are found. Anyone who passed any Geology 101 class would know that they wouldn't have had to have lived at such depths - they simply lived at the surface and their remains were buried to great depths. Did no one here who read the book catch this laughable argument? Corsi also bungles his organic chemistry when he argues that oil has been found on Titan, a moon of Jupiter. But the only hydrocarbon found on Titan was liquid methane. Corsi seems to assume that liquid methane is the same thing as oil! But they're not the same thing. They're both hydrocarbons but methane is the simplest possible hydrocarbon (a molecule of methane is just a single carbon atom surrounded by four hydrogen atoms) while oil is a complex mixture of complex hydrocarbons. They're not the same thing in any way, shape or form! A little homework by Corsi (and a little fact-checking by the publisher) would have cleared up this problem. The issue of peak oil is similarly bungled as even within an abiotic oil scenario there would still be concern about peak oil. The reason for this is that oil in the reservoirs where it is found is being extracted at a higher rate than it could be replenished from below so that the reservoir would be emptied out over time and not replenish for centuries if not millenia. That results in a peak oil situation for the abiotic oil theory just as much as it does for the fossil fuel theory. There are some arguments to be made for abiotic oil (though not many) but Corsi's book can't even manage to get those right. The book is filled with bad science, bad economics, bad reasoning and bad politics. And clearly, politics was the real reason for this book being written in the first place. Corsi's blind stabs at science and reasoning were evidently concocted to rationalize his political beliefs. So please don't consider this book to be a science book or even a book about economics. It's pure politics and nothing more. The problem is that reviewers don't have the background to recognize the horrible mistakes it makes and that Corsi has a political agenda that he's masquerading as something else. Thus I can't recommend this book. There are better science books, better economics books, better books about reasoning and better books about politics out there. This book has no value whatsoever. Ignore the positive reviews.

    This has got to be one of the more interesting, though at times confusing books I've ever read. It kind of reminded me about Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory. If you want something equally challenging, I dare you to read the Mass Psychology of Fascism... While some of the ideas make sense, the author takes quite a jaunt off topic at times before bringing things back to his central argument - that oil is a constantly replenishing resource that is not a fossil fuel.

The 32 pages of pictures and documents, while some were interesting, struck me as literary padding and could easily have been cut back or removed. The odd typo that I noticed would have been easily caught through detailed proofreading, but things happen. The section on renewable energy was a bit of a diatribe, but some fair points were made. However, I think that more rigor about staying on topic needed to be followed. This came across as an academic work that needed more editing than I think it was given. But I'm only an MA and not a PHD, so I may come across as being a bit harsh. Overall, some interesting ideas that have worked their way into at least one fiction book that I have read in the past two years. Read it if you dare. Believe it if you will. I expect to hear more about this theory in the coming years.

    Abiotic oil is currently a hot topic and author helps explain in clear concise manner. Would recommend to anyone interested in present status of oil around the world. Makes one stop and think. Historical data is of great interest-another area author covers clearly. Moved up on reading list because of current gas prices around country.

    Interesting view, reminds me of the movie, "The Formula" about American troops trying to get a hold a the formula to make synthetic oil or something of the sort. Makes me wonder about American government, big business, and oil companies.

    I must say a very interesting book. It has me looking at Oil in a whole new way.
