There are a number of arguments claiming that the supply of oil is actually inexhaustible. As such arguments fly in the face of reason, we are classifying them all as denialism until such time as there is clear evidence that any of them make sense.
One denialist theory specific to oil is that oil is largely created by by inorganic means, rather than by the decomposition of organisms over the course of millions of years. Such theories generally argue that oil reserves are actually being replenished at a rate fast enough to indefinitely support current consumption rates.
- Peak oil denial is a subset of resource exhaustion denial.
