NOTE: the author of this website does not wish to protest against, or complain about any methods being used to commercially produce power and/or electrical power by anyone or any company. On the contrary, I thank everyone who works in the energy industry for helping provide electric power, and other forms of power, nuclear power, natural gas, heating, or cooling to the people of planet earth, using every mode of production and transfer. Without reliable power and/or energy, very little can be accomplished in life.

Nuclear Power Obsolete?

First "Enhanced Geothermal" Power Plant
to Use Injected "Cold" Water, Finished in Nevada.

(((New 400 MW Power Plant in Utah Predicted to be Finished Within Five years!)))

"There’s a Vast Source of Clean Energy
Beneath Our Feet. And a Race to Tap It."

NOTE: (Dec. 8, 2023) Cooling. The venting of heat from the vast inner core of our planet is not overall a heating phenomenon. It appears to me to be a cooling phenomenon taking place. Geothermal energy, when I model it in my brain, appears to be a cooling phenomenon for the entire planet despite the fact that this heat energy is being tapped to create steam which will turn turbines creating electricity for the grid.

Heating. Most of the other energy sources being used today such as fossil fuels and nuclear energy, are actually heating up the planet, while most other energy sources other than nuclear are either neutral, or are cooling the planet.

ESG: hydro-electric, geothermal, wind, and possibly solar, are probably all cooling off the planet; solar is probably slightly heating due to bringing in more energy from the sun during the day, but that heat is balanced by the fact that the sun sets every day on most of the planet.

It appears that the planet had been cooling off for many centuries until very recently. Then the planet began to rise in termperature at some point during the 19th or 20th century. This would be when the developing world began to utilize mostly planet-heating technologies to generate electricity, just as the developed world had mostly been doing for many decades.

The introduction of more cooling technologies to replace the heaters in the coming decades may help restore the overall cooling processes that were interrupted at some point in the 19th or 20th centuries.

(Nov. 29, 2023) First of its kind in the USA: Fervo Energy and Google start up brand new 3.5 mw "Enhanced Geothermal Power" plant in Nevada.

(Oct. 12, 2023) Earlier, this summer around July 7, 2023, a research milestone was achieved near Blundell, Utah: click here.

After that major success in July, approval to immediately start construction of a permanent 400 megawatt power plant was given by the various agencies. IADD/New York Times, Aug. 28, 2023: click here.

(Oct. 4, 2023) No suicidal dirty bomb from this power generating method. A recent mention from an MIT journal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) agrees with me that such new-technology geothermal power plants are probably going to be much less expensive and much safer than nuclear. The primary feature is that such "cold water injection" geothermal plants should be feasible to build anywhere on planet earth. The one just approved in Utah will use the same water supply in a closed loop system, so vast amounts of water are not required, apparently.

Here's two items I already wrote about geothermal energy producing no waste heat at all back in 2020, or earlier:

No Waste Heat at All from Geothermal I, or

No Waste Heat at All from Geothermal II .

I didn't date the first item until Jan. 12, 2020, so it already was posted before that date. The second item also not dated when posted, so I recently dated it with a recent date.
