Al Gore explains geothermal energy

What a moron!

HA! Good one anon!

So, Gore thinks it's bad to drill for oil, but good to drill for heat, so we can further heat up our supposedly heating world? Do I have that right?

Good one too, Hunter! Drilling for heat. All Al knows is that bad heat comes only from CO2.

The big problem with Geothermal is the contaminants in the steam produced - acids, leachates, etc. If you pumped this steam directly into a turbine, it would be destroyed by corrosion within a week.

Turbines need "clean" superheated steam, and the underground steam would need to be filtered or directed through a heat-exchanger (and here lies the problem!) with accordingly reduced efficiency, to produce "clean" steam.

The bubbling pools of Iceland and New Zealand have heated homes for decades, but for base-load power???

The only "hot rocks" are in Al's big head.

I'm the kind of hombre who loves to taste radical stuff. Currently I am making my personal pv panels. I'm making it all alone without the assistance of my staff. I'm using the internet as the only way to acheive that. I ran across a truly awesome site which explains how to make solar panels and wind generators. The website explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I'm not exactly sure bout how precise the data given there iz. If some people over here who had experience with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the site it will be great and I would highly value it, cauze I extremely would love to try solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. U guys are great.
