Methane on Saturn’s Moon Titan is NOT Biological.
So, Does This Mean Natural Gas Prices will Soon Plummet?

NASA scientists are set to publish conclusive studies proving that the abundant methane on Saturn’s moon Titan is NOT of biological nature.

The impact of this finding is nothing short of astounding. It blows out of the water every excuse for high gasoline, oil and natural gas prices and the lame excuses for limiting oil exploration due to running out of this alleged “organic fossil fuel” that took thousands or millions of years to be created from organic compounds (dinosaurs, etc.) to decompose. So, does this mean that the price of natural gas will soon plummet? Read on.

Now NASA is showing that abiotic (non organic) methane (The gas that gives Saturn’s giant moon an orange hue) on Titan likely comes out from the center of that moon—and if there’s trillions of dollars of abundant methane inside Saturn, that never had organic life—earth has got to be chock full of the stuff, burning and churning inside in nearly unimaginable abundance!

"We have determined that Titan's methane is not of biologic origin," reports Hasso Niemann of the Goddard Space Flight Center, a principal NASA investigator responsible for the Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer aboard the Cassini-Huygens probe that landed on Titan Jan. 14.

Niemann concludes the methane "must be replenished by geologic processes on Titan, perhaps venting from a supply in the interior that could have been trapped there as the moon formed."

The studies announced by NASA yesterday will be reported in the Dec. 8 issue of the scientific journal Nature.

But who knew all this long before NASA? Brace yourself: Craig R. Smith is co-author of Black Gold Stranglehold (WND Books, Nov. 2005 release) and available to dazzle your audiences with statistics that my make their blood boil.

We challenge you to bring on Craig R. Smith for what may be one of your most vital and eye-opening interviews you've ever had.


It’s not all that cold yet but wait until the double barrel whammy hits middle America:

1) The first bitter cold day, and
2) The first heating bill after that cold spell.

Wow! Will your audience be primed for an interview with Craig R. Smith. But why wait until then? Be the first to interview the man busting the organic oil myth. Here are just some of the interesting interview tidbits for your consideration:

Home heating oil and natural gas are set to increase a whopping 50% to 100% in many markets this winter, yet oil companies are sitting on trillions of dollars of known reserves of this “expensive” stuff. And that’s what they know of. Add to this the new NASA revelation and there could be quadrillions or quintillions of cubic feet of natural gas and even larger amounts of oil. How do you spell S.C.A.M.? “Oil is a fossil fuel.”

During your interview, Craig Smith explains that in North Dakota there is virtually no oil but there are plenty of dinosaur bones and in the Middle East there are virtually no dinosaur bones but plenty of oil. What a sham! How long have we wrongfully believed that Fred Flintstone’s pets (Dino, etc.) have been fueling our cars for all these years!
Imagine this: Oil at $8 a barrel. Gasoline at 50 cents a gallon. Natural gas so cheap you can leave your doors and windows open.

But have an open mind. And listen to the astounding revelation that may lead your audience to march on Washington, demanding we “exploit” the “limited” resources of “organic fossil fuels”, just daring them to run out.
Oil execs may head for cover as their myth of oil scarcity and oil origins is exposed—on your program. And if there’s enough hooting and hollering, maybe prices of natural gas will go down…maybe.

NEW YORK TIMES/ December 1, 2005

WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2005 - Robotic explorers probing neighboring planets have found evidence of hidden impact craters on Mars and dynamic weather, possibly including lightning, on Saturn's giant moon Titan, scientists reported on Wednesday.

In a series of papers being published this week in two scientific journals, the scientists report that smog-shrouded Titan is a frigid, dynamic world of ice carved and colored by liquid methane and organic chemicals.

The European Space Agency's Huygens mission, which landed on Titan on Jan. 14 after a seven-year ride to Saturn on NASA's Cassini spacecraft, parachuted through winds of up to 280 miles an hour while 75 miles above the surface. At a news conference in Paris, the researchers said the winds decreased at lower altitudes and dropped to walking speed at the surface.

On its descent of 2 hours 28 minutes to the minus-290-degree surface, the Huygens craft found a surprising electrically charged ionospheric layer bearing evidence of lightning, roughly from 85 miles to 25 miles above Titan's surface, the researchers reported in papers published online and in the journal Nature.

The layer of haze of methane and suspended particles that surrounds the planet-size moon goes all the way down to the surface, the spacecraft found, contrary to many predictions. But the haze cleared enough below 25 miles for the craft to take clear pictures of an ice world eroded by liquid flows and studded with wide flat areas that could be the remnants of lakebeds once filled with liquid methane.

"The surface is very dark," Bruno Bezard of the Paris Observatory said. "It would appear brownish to the human eye. What we see is a kind of dirty water ice mixed with other components."

Jonathan Lunine of the University of Arizona said radar images made by the Cassini craft when it passed by Titan suggested a strange world of rough lighter-colored areas and smooth dark stretches. The Cassini radar, which can penetrate the haze, has mapped 2 percent of the hidden surface of Titan, and experts said they hoped it would detail 10 percent to 20 percent on 37 more passes planned over the next four years.

A NASA-built instrument on the Huygens craft analyzed atmospheric gases in its descent and found that the source of the methane appeared to be the interior of Titan. Biological processes or degrading organic material can produce methane, the primary component of natural gas on Earth.

"We have determined that Titan's methane is not of biological origin, so it must be replenished by geologic processes on Titan," said Hasso Niemann of the Goddard Space Flight Center, a principal NASA investigator for the instrument.

How was it possible for the organic fossil fuel myth to be propagated for so long and what other myths are there out there that we’re being lied about still?

Beyond gas prices, is it true that this winter consumer heating bills will skyrocket 50%?

Why are heating oil & natural gas prices rising disproportionately higher than gas prices?

Did the major oil companies do anything illegal or immoral worthy of sanctions?

What impact will testifying under oath this time have on the Senate proceedings?

Has oil exploration peaked and is it a highly limited resource or is this just a myth?

What might be the impact of the proposed 50% tax to oil companies on the sale of oil over $40 a barrel as proposed by Democratic Senators Byron Dorgan (N.D., and Chris Dodd (Conn.)?

If passed, should the revenue from this special excise tax be returned to consumers in the form of an income-tax rebate?

Should the main recipients on proposed windfall profit taxes be poorer families to help pay their winter heating bills?

Is it prudent and feasible to issue tax credits for deep-drilling oil exploration?

What about alternative energy?

And should we drill in ANWR, Alaska?

Is oil a scarce, nearly depleted organic fossil fuel or an abundant abiotic substance?


In writing "Black Gold Stranglehold: The Myth of Scarcity and the Politics of Oil," Craig Smith and I argued that government intervention in the oil industry has rarely turned out to help the public, despite good intentions. A strong argument can be made that the gas lines of the Carter administration were caused not by the OPEC oil embargo, but by the Cost of Living Council's Special Rule No. 1 that in March 1973 imposed mandatory price controls on 95 percent of the domestic petroleum market.

By freezing the price of petroleum for all but independent refiners, the Cost of Living Council prevented gas prices from reaching a market-based supply-and-demand equilibrium.

When oil price controls initiated in the Nixon administration were eliminated in the 1980s, the Federal Energy Administration was spending an estimated 5 million hours annually meeting standard reporting requirements from over 200,000 respondents.

Last week, John Felmy, chief economist at the American Petroleum Institute, a trade group representing the major oil companies, told reporters that the industry plans to spend $86 million in 2006 on marketing, refinery expansions, and oil exploration and production. That's good news, especially when industry analysts are predicting that the six major oil companies will spend some $40 billion this year buying back their own stock. Shareholders like stock buy-backs. Stock prices tend to increase when the number of outstanding shares is reduced.

Consumers have a different perspective – especially when they realize no new oil refineries have been built in the United States in the last 30 years. With U.S. refineries operating at or near capacity, even the availability of an ample supply of crude oil on the world market will not solve the problem of gasoline costing $2.75 or more a gallon.

The Energy Information Administration estimates that ExxonMobil and ChevronTexaco together are sitting on proven reserves of approximately 6 billion barrels of oil, about 20 percent of the U.S. total. Oil company TV commercials are beginning to announce that we have reached "peak oil production" and that we are running out. Even British Petroleum has begun pushing the theme that BP stands for "Beyond Petroleum." Why not? As long as the public continues to believe that oil is fossil fuel, the logical conclusion is that oil is a scarce resource that will not last forever.

Pretty soon, the major oil companies are going to start arguing they are sitting on huge oil reserves not because they are waiting for even higher prices, but because they are socially responsible and they want to conserve our precious and depleting energy supplies.

The oil executives in Washington next week are going to be on the hot seat. Let's just hope the senators can get off their predictable polemical attacks long enough to ask some hard questions, including some questions aimed at themselves. How can we get environmental regulations into some perspective so we can drill the oil we know we have offshore and in Alaska? If we streamline the environmental approval process for building new refineries, will the oil companies commit to building new refineries right now?

Otherwise, we will have a predictable political drama in which the senators posture for points, full of sound and fury, but accomplishing little.
