CrakrJak: I have no idea if you're still reading this. But I checked back in tonight, read your post with your latest error, and thought I`d clear up a few things for you.
You`re absolutely correct that carbon atoms derived from coke are trapped within the latticework of iron in the manufacture of steel. But here`s the problem, Grumpy Anti-Science Man: The coke that is used in the manufacture of steel is derived from *coal*, not petroleum. Most of the coke that is a byproduct from an oil refinery (aka petroleum coke) is combusted in blast furnaces for the smelting of iron, copper, and other metals.
All that petroleum coke in your photo? The vast majority of its atoms joined with oxygen and flew out of smokestacks as carbon dioxide, just as I told you. Of course, some small percentage of it was probably used for battery manufacturing.

You do so once again, because you damn well know I'm right and it infuriates you. No, what infuriates me is the fact that I damn well know you`re so f*cking wrong on just about every matter of science that it`s ludicrous, yet you`re so confident that you`re right.
p.s. On the Marcellus shale, it exists at various depths between outcrop and thousands of metres. And it`s being fracked in various places at all kinds of depths. I`m delivering a traing course in Fracking on tuesday, to some 20 oil company professional geologists from Houston to Dubai to Korea.
You`re very welcome to attend my course. You can be the guy that shouts from the back of the room, "THAT TEACHER GUY WITH THE PHD DOESN`T KNOW WHAT HE`S TALKING ABOUT, DON`T LISTEN TO HIM! I GREW UP NEXT TO A REFINERY, FOR F*CK SAKE!"
Normally I wouldn`t, but I think I can squeeze it in one more time when it comes to you: You`re a wanker.

That's the difference between you and I CJ. I`m humble. I`m not going to take on an expert in particle physics at CERN, because he/she knows a lot more about the subject than I do. Nor am I going to take on my mechanic, when he diagnoses something wrong with my car. I`ll happily concede, he knows more than I do about the working of engines. Nor would I take on a medical professional who gave me sage advice based on his/her diagnosis. I"m quite willing to concede that any of these learned people, in their field, know more about the subject than I do.
But you can`t do that. You can`t help yourself. You`re so full of pride in being right all the f*cking time, on subjects you know nothing about. THAT is what makes you a wanker.

One of these days you're going to have a hell of a pride fall davy, it`s going to hit you hard, very hard. Oh for f*ck sake. I`m humble Crackrjak. You`re the one full of pride. You`ll proudly take on an oil exploration specialist, and tell him you know more than him about oil exploration. You`ll happily take on PhD climatologsts, and tell them you know more than them about climatology. You`ll happily take on every meaningful expert on biological science, and tell them that that you know more than they do about basic biology, and that evolution is a lie.
