  •  I always ask people the right questions (0+ / 0-)

    I haven't yet actually told my sister that BobTrips is an idiot but I am sure she will provide her professional opinion that BobTrips is an idiot if I tell her that BobTrips is an idiot.

    You see, Bob, this world is full of of experts with all manner of opinions.  I have discussed matters with geologists, with engineers, with hydrologists, even with bankers and investment advisers.

    In my youngest years we got water from a hot spring that is oddly called the Hallinan Hot Spring. That spring marks the southern boundary of a vast geothermal resource known as the Crump Geyser drilled in the 1950's by geothermal pioneer B. C. McCabe that will be developed any day now.  Any day for 50 years it will be developed but not today.

    And you tell me that you and all the geologists know all about that geothermal stuff and that I know nothing.

    Umm, yeah, OK.

    What's to discuss?

    I would rather discuss geothermal energy because it has been a large part of my life.  Not so anxious to discuss me and how I don't know what you and all the geologists know.  I don't think you know everything and I am inclined to think not all geologists, including my sister, think you do.  

    Best,  Terry

    •  Well, let's summarize: (0+ / 0-)
      1. Terry's sister thinks Bob is an idiot.

      However Terry has yet to discuss Bob with his sister so we are led to believe that Terry's sister has no opinion one way or another about Bob.  That does tend to bring Terry's credibility into question.

      1. Terry thinks that hot rock geothermal is a "crock".

      However there is at least one hot rock thermal plant in operation and supplying power to the grid.

      1. Terry thinks that one can drill anywhere and produce usable geothermal steam because "the crust of the earth is soaked with water".

      However we just don't see people sticking holes in the ground and pulling out usable steam.  They have to find those "special places" where adequate amounts of water flow rapidly enough to create volume.  We know that one of the problems with conventional geothermal is the cost of dry holes.

      1. Finally Terry has shown himself to be an unpleasant person given to name calling when disagreed with.

      I can't dispute that one.  Guess I'll have to settle for three out of four....

      15 to 6. Pulled ahead as soon as the gate opened and never looked back....
