The term "fossil fuel" is a misnomer and is a relic of 1950's thinking when it was thought that hydrocarbon products were a result of dead plant and animal material. It has been shown that many of the old "depleted" oil wells are replenishing themselves. It turns out that oil is being produced deep within the earth by yet unknown processes and is migrating towards the surface where we can get to it.
