John Skvala, newly appointed as Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources in North Carolina, believes oil is continually produced underground.

In an illuminating interview with WRAL’s Laura Leslie, Skvarla failed the scientific sniff test…

First, Skvarla insinuated that oil and gas are infinite, renewable resources. When Leslie noted that these fossil fuels are not renewable, he replied, “Some people would disagree with you. The Russians, for example, have always drilled oil as if it’s a renewable resource … There is a lot of different scientific opinion on that.”
