OK, So Now Geothermal Energy Is Verbotan By Climate Weenies


Remember how they wanted every alternative type of energy? Well, they block transmission lines for the “clean energy” projects, block solar and wind projects, don’t like hydrothermal because of a raft of reasons, and now, geothermal is evil

(Global Warming Policy Foundation) The most promising renewable energy of all is making pro-renewable Greens frightened and angry. It’s geothermal energy, which taps into the natural warmth below Earth’s surface, providing an abundant heat source. The problem? New geothermal techniques requires hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and environmental crusaders have convinced themselves that fracking is evil.

Geothermal exploitation used to be about finding and retrieving hot water — but new technology allows water to be sent into deep fissures several thousand feet down, where it meets hot dry rock, and comes out piping hot.

The problem? New geothermal techniques requires hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and environmental crusaders have convinced themselves that fracking is evil. Thanks to misleading propaganda such as the movie Gasland, campaigners fear contamination of the water table and apocalyptic earthquakes. (For some Greens, the world is a disaster movie set to loop.)

And because of fracking, at least one project, AltaRock in Oregon, has been cancelled. Warmists are for alternative energy in principle, but not practice.

Fortunately, Warmists are forcing coal fired plants (again, not my favorite type of energy) to shut down with nothing to replace them. I suggest we put tons of wind turbines throughout liberal suburban neighborhoods to make up for the lost power.
