Why oil is 100% more expensive than a year ago

    If we get a crop this year volunteer pickers/pruners etc may be in line for olive oil as a “payment”. Nice to have seen something grow, picked it yourself and then savour the high quality, organic, tasty, healthy oil.

    I will advertise for slave labour, er I meant volunteers, later on.

  2. Hans says:

    On the topic of the other, evil oil, what if oil and gas are NOT fossil fuels?

    Any of you young scientists have a view/info/evidence??

  3. Yeah that’d be cool. Can I sign up now?

  4. Lynton says:

    Yeah can I help too?

  5. Sambo says:

    Depends on what kind of gas you are talking about, Hans. Oil however is definatly a fossil fuel.

    I guess the 100% article could be condensed into “because we’re running out of it”.

    i would like to help.

    if want labour that is cheaper than slave labour, I can get Lucy to help out. Child slave labourr is the best.

  8. Hans says:

    Awesome guys and gals, will get back to you after flowering. We had no olives this year at all, next year should be good, 90% plus for oil, rest for ongoing pickling experimentation.

    Come live in Masterton, peoples—your rent will halve and your property size will triple. Wendellian dreams in your own backyard! Last year our sweetcorn was simply luscious. And I mean really really yummy.

  10. Having spent more years in Masterton than anywhere else, I am qualified to comment:

    Masterton is full of uglies.

    there must have been an awful lot of dead dinosaurs/trees/fossils around six thousand years ago to produce the _billions of barrels_ of “fossil” oil we have pumped out of the ground already. That’s enough forest to cover the surface area of several planet Earths.

    Something floodish must have happened to wipe them all out at once.

  13. AFAIK, the idea of a near global oil peak doesn’t necessarily require an old earth.

  14. My idea is to grow lots of trees, and get criminals to stamp on them real hard for their jail sentence. Should be able to keep up with demand.

    why Alan, a visit to will answer all your sinful evolutionary questions!

  17. Alan says:

    My point was an attempt to show that the theory of oil being a fossil fuel, the result of decayed organic matter, is not viable _within_ the framework of a relatively young earth and a world-wide flood. I certainly do not hold with any evolutionary view of history (the millions of years hypothesis which is necessary for the fossil fuel view of oil formation!)

    I believe the theory that crude oil is formed deep in the earth’s mantle as part of an inorganic chemical process has far more credibility and has borne much more scientific scrutiny.

    I think Jono was just trying to be witty and such. But he lost. HAHA!

  19. jono says:

    Well reguardless of whether or not I ‘won’ or ‘lost’, I still managed to wrench a sensible comment from Alan’s potty mouth!
