Does Deep Earth Host Untapped Fuel? "http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/DyeHard/story? id=421532&page=1&technology=true"

Jan. 19, 2005 — Thomas Gold was not your typical radical. Far from being a mad scientist, he was a brilliant professor of astronomy at Cornell University, but he succeeded in driving many others mad with theories that flew in the face of conventional wisdom.

His most controversial idea was among his last, and geologists and petroleum experts around the world still rage against Gold for suggesting they were dead wrong in their understanding of how oil and gas are formed in the Earth's crust.

Now, a couple of decades after Gold first suggested that hydrocarbons are formed deep underground by geological processes and not just below the surface by biological decay, there is increasing evidence that he may have been on to something.

That's one I've heard a time or two but even the substance of the article says it is just an experimental outcome even though the headline tries to suggest otherwise.

It doesn't have much credibility for me, but it is getting people to do science to prove or disprove it so it will be interesting to see what comes of it.
