OIL - It ‘GREASES’ Many Palms!

The following are comments I just made to Regis & Sha’Tara’s recent Article - “Common Sense Understanding of Fossil/Energy Fuels.”
REG AND SHARA ... WELL DONE!
I would prefer to go with Dr. Gold's theory.
A year or more ago, I posted a piece which presented my pure opinion, with no research or background checks whatsoever - that IF the Earth's Core was molten magma, or lava - and OIL seemed to be found anywhere and everywhere - valleys, mountains, the Sea (Gulf & other Off-Shore locations, as well as under the Arctic Ocean) - at various and sundry Depths - was it possible that OIL completely surrounded the CORE, and might in fact be, the propellant that constantly seeped inside, INTO the CORE - keeping it BURNING?
IF so - then the self-perpetuating nature of this phenomenon has worked consistently for Millenniums! AND - 'we' - humans have only been suctioning IT off for about 200 years.
ERGO - any Long Term continuation of this practice might well begin to CAUSE the Lowering of Temperature of the CORE, which in turn, may well Lower the Temperature of the Entire Earth?
In regards to the 'high n' dry' Oil wells in TEXAS, and other areas - I thoroughly believe THIS is BY DESIGN -
The OIL MAGNATES, the "Good Ole Boys' - as you stated, have known for DECADES about 'Replenishment' - and WANT to sit on our own RESERVES ... THIS helps to maintain the high PRICE of OIL, FORCES us to import foreign OIL, and THEIR Children, and Children's Children, will eventually REAP the Benefits in the Future!
As a sideline, or sidebar - many years ago, perhaps in the early 70’s - a National Moratorium was declared on the drilling of New Wells. Every time a new well is drilled, the First natural ‘By-Product’ is NATURAL GAS.
A very good friend of mine, Don M. worked for Honeywell Controls, Inc. at the time. He had decided to start his own business, selling Natural Gas Heaters to plants, factories, and other Businesses. He had several Contracts all lined up, when this Moratorium hit! Needless to say, Don’s plans were totally QUASHED!
Next, consider only FOUR things - ALL Caused by MAN:
1. HOLES in the Ozone Layer ...
2. AIR POLLUTION from CO2 from exhaust fumes ...
3. OIL CONSUMPTION from above ...
4. GREED - GREED - and More GREED!
MAN IS CAUSING BOTH HOMICIDE, AS WELL AS EVENTUAL SUICIDE!
That's my 'take' ... Peace, Tom.
