This idea has been proposed before. However, it has not got the same traction as solar/wind developments many because of lobbying against it by the solar/wind developers. It seems as if one "green" proponent cannot support another.

While not every abandoned well is suitable for geothermal development there are other possibilities.

It is all too easy to bash an industry you do not like. It is much harder to offer rational and doable alternatives or constructive criticism. Over the next 20 years, as we transition into a country that is less dependent on petroleum, we are going to need the revenue from petroleum to accomplish that. I would hope that contributors would offer ways to transport, refine, and use our petroleum, within our country, in more environmentally friendly ways than simple demand that we refuse to use petroleum and leave it in the ground.


Perhaps it is you that has a short memory. I recall posting a few links of my own a couple of years ago about the geothermal projects near Valemount and Terrace. I also applauded the town of Hinton for considering such a plan.

However, for as many stories there are about these projects, there have never been (to my knowledge, and I'm sure you'll start bashing me for that) any follow-up stories telling us how successful they are.

You haven’t even been a member of these forums for a couple of years, so how did you post anything a couple of years ago?

I've been a Castanet member for years. I also am a member of other public opinion forums. If you can't find my comments, perhaps you're looking for the wrong user name. I don't appreciate your insinuations or your accusations, so please put me on your ignore list, and I'll put you on mine.

Even for Gramma’s bitchin’ about it she finds out that good green salad needs a little more oil than vinegar.
