Well (no pun intended), just when you may have thought that human beings in certain positions of power had actually learned a few lessons, such as from the BP disaster, they’re on the verge of another insane oil drilling venture.
It’s insane not only because any extraction of the petroleum and gas from the Earth contributes to an increase in frequency and intensity of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and sinkholes, as Semjase told Billy Meier…in 1976.
It’s additionally insane because, as Meier clearly pointed out in as the time fulfills, developing and expanding the use of deep geothermal energy is the safest solution to the great majority of our energy needs. And since it’s virtually inexhaustible, with no danger of spills or contamination, is non-polluting and doesn’t require any combustion, it’s obviously too sane and sensible for the “profits uber alles” crowd. I for one wouldn’t mind if Chevron Oil suddenly became Chevron Deep Geothermal, so why are they avoiding it?
In regards to this in the Bloomberg article:
“Engineering innovations enable them to drill five miles into the earth through waters more than 10,000 feet deep, where temperatures are more than hot enough to boil water and high pressures approach the weight of four cars resting on one square inch.”
…I submitted this comment:
“Note that they’re going to drill into/through very hot areas. The deep geothermal energy of the Earth is inexhaustible, clean, non-polluting, etc. It’s the way of the future and avoids contributing to the increase in earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and sinkholes…all of which are intimately connected to the continued foolishness of petroleum and gas extraction.
We are very slow learners and we’ll continue to pay the real price of our reliance on this outdated ‘energy’ source.”
But hey, we’re by no means done making sure that every long foretold, still avoidable, manmade catastrophe is indeed fulfilled, so we can of course wail and scream…”Why didn’t somebody warn us?”
