Shooting thousands of gallons of water deep into the earth's core to free up energy is, in our opinion, a dangerous process. With gas it has contaminated water supplies, to the point residents can lite their water on fire, and we worry very much about platonic changes in the earth's surface. To the point of worrying about more frequent and powerful earthquakes.
As you will see in the article, there's a major difference in the technology between fracking for geothermal heating and cooling and natural gas. And, according the geothermal industry, these differences are part of the reason they dismiss our fears on creating seismic activity.
Take a look and see what you think:
Is Fracking for Enhanced Geothermal Systems the Same as Fracking for Natural Gas?
Advocates for both natural gas and geothermal are up in arms over whether fracking for enhanced geothermal systems should be scrutinized with the same parameters as natural gas
