Is it possible that global warming is actually the many years of crude oil extraction from the earth?

Could crude oil be whats keeping our earth from melting from the inside out? Does it not act as an insulator?

    No.

    Oil is formed in pockets of organic sediments under heat and pressure, but there are VERY few places that are ideal for the creation of oil. It’s not like one huge layer all around the world that holds oil.

    There isn’t enough oil in the earth’s crust to insulate the outside crust from the mantle. Oil is only found in small pockets (relative to the size of the earth) in very few areas. Simply extracting it does not change the ability of the mantle heat to move upward toward the crust. As you see in volcanoes, if the heat from the mantle wants out, it just comes out, there is nothing that can stop it.

    Very unlikley. Besides Man made global warming is a THEORY.
    Here is an article that discusses this…

    Global warming is caused by the Sun.
