Mint Juleps
Sunday, January 23, 2005  
With the talk recently about the rivers of liquid methane that once flowed on Saturn's moon Titan, I am reminded of an article I once read in the Atlantic Monthly. The article described a theory that the earth's oil is of primordial origin. Not made from decaying plants and algae, but in huge pools deep in the earth from its original formation. A proponent of this theory is Thomas Gold. Let me just get this post out to say I think the arguments are convincing. Serious efforts should be made to find what may be virtually limitless deposits of oil. It would not help any of the existing large producers, since the price would decline, but it would help the rest of us.
