I don't think that anyone who knows how petroleum was created ever thought that the process stopped at some time in the past. On the other hand, the rate at which we are extracting it far exceeds the rate at which it is being created. Most petroleum being extracted is over 200 million years old. We have only been extracting it for about 150 years.
Spot on, Dooglas.

?? Well they use to think it came from the dead Dinosaurs, that is how it got the nick name DYNO Fuel, so EVERYONE in the whole industry thought that at one point

20 years ago it was thought we only had 100 years of oil left in the earth.
And in 150 years look how far we have come and we have another 2000 years to figure out an alternative with what we KNOW we have.

Sorry WEB-Tech...

Oil has never been thought to have come from decaying animals or meat. Oil comes from decaying plant matter, and in fact, most of the world's oil comes from decayed algae.

And as for the word "dyno":

dyno(Noun)
1. A dynamic climbing move or jump to reach a hold that cannot otherwise be reached.

2. A rapid move across a rock face in order to reach a hold.

3. Short for "dynamometer"

Word origin:
Early 19th century: from French dynamomètre, from Greek dunamis ‘power’ + French -mètre ‘(instrument) measuring’.
