Dry rock geothermal certainly does have a big upside potential -- there is a whole lot of heat just a few miles below the ground, but it is not as easy or simple as you seem to think it is. For example in a lot of dry areas water supply becomes a gating factor that puts a limit on scalability -- this also applies to Canadian tar sands and shale gas plays -- water requirements will place a limit on how much it can scale; on the maximum annual rates of extraction that can be achieved.
Water use is also, or should be, a limiting factor on fracking for oil extraction. Brent -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
