If this is for real...why hasn't oil COVERED more beaches? I know, I know, but they couldn't cover-up that much oil with ANY amount of Corexit? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1043434
WHERE'S ALL THE CRUDE OIL????
and why is it blood red?
It's Abiotic Oil which is described as red.
In its simplest form, the Abiotic Oil theory is that carbon present in the magma beneath the crust reacts with hydrogen to form methane.
Experiments have shown that under extreme conditions of heat and pressure it is possible to convert iron oxide, calcium carbonate and water into methane, with hydrocarbons containing up to 10 carbon atoms, confirmed in recent US experiments.
The absence of large quantities of free gaseous oxygen in the magma prevents the hydrocarbons from burning and therefore forming the lower energy state molecule carbon dioxide.
The conditions present in the Earth's mantle would easily be sufficient for these small hydrocarbon chains to polymerise into the longer chain molecules found in crude oil.
This also explains why this oil field contains 40% methane, under enormous pressure.
This is bad news.
