Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    THE POTENTIAL OF GEOTHERMAL

    The Power War: Geothermal vs. Nuclear

    Kirsten Allen, July 15, 2015 (The Advocate)

    “…[Oregon’s Newberry Volcano] is one of five sites that have been awarded $2 million by the Department of Energy [for research on a fracking-like geothermal energy process]…[The winning site will] test technology and equipment, with the eventual goal of geothermal energy production...[I]f the technology demonstrated at Newberry based on extracting heat from an otherwise dry geothermal system [can be] developed into commercial power generation…[it could be a source of New Energy for the Pacific Northwest. Newberry developers are] engineering a hydrothermal system using hydroshearing, the injection of shallow groundwater into deeper very hot rock formations, at modest pressure, to open up a network of small cracks that are meant to allow for the transfer of heat away from the rock and into the circulating water…[This boiling hot water would be turned to steam to drive a turbine and] then cooled and condensed to be reused…[If federal funding for the research continues, the technology could compete] with a nuclear reactor on the scale of power output…” click here for more
