  • Debora Williams United States of America I didn't realize dead plant matter, decomposed over millions of years, was the source of fossil fuels. Is fossil fuels not more than plants? Without microorganisms plant matter would not breakdown at all, and thereby, not decay. Though this may be addressed later; however, I feel this statement needs more clarification in this module.

  • Tilma Tilmo Bermuda This is the first slide and I am already greeted with a little bit of bull. I am qouting the above " In addition, dead plant material decays, and over millions of years is converted into fossil fuels (Oil, coal etc.) Ok. Here is the other side of the coin that I need some clarification on. Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty spills the beans about how oil was deliberately, incorrectly classified as a fossil fuel, when in fact it is Abiotic. As such, it is a replenishable, naturally occurring source. Peak oil is a myth, or more accurately, a lie. Just like almost everything else the establishment ever told you. Oil Fields Are Refilling...

  • Cecil Ellis United Kingdom is there a scenario where the amount of energy lost (sink) is greater than the energy that can be fed into the system?
