US Politicians Pin Green Hopes on a Geothermal Energy Breakthrough

I am no specialist for geothermal energy but as novice as I am I still can see that it holds appeal only in some very limited circumstances where geology brings the energy of the planet’s innards to the surface naturally. I once had a chat with a driller for geothermal and he told me about silting and keeping the water flowing and it quickly was clear to me that this is a maintenance hog. So, apart from Yellowstone, Iceland, and some other such sites, geothermal won’t ever be a decimal point to the world’s energy needs. But it feels good to chase another pig through the village.
