Al Gore REMOVES ALL DOUBT that he has no grasp of Science yet no one seems to have told him he doesn’t.
Face it Gore… your credibility was shot in the ass as soon as you said you invented the Internet and has gone down hill from there, in spite of Socialist Pals of yours hanging on your every uninformed word.
Going on the Conan O’Brian Show and pontificating about Geothermal Energy?
Conan: Now, what about … you talk in the book about ‘geothermal energy.’
Al: Yeah, yeah.
Conan: and that is, as I understand it, using the heat that’s generated from the core of the earth …
Conan: … to create energy, and it sounds to me like an evil plan by Lex Luthor to defeat Superman. Can you, can you tell me, is this a viable solution, geothermal energy?
Al: It definitely is, and it’s a relatively new one. People think about geothermal energy — when they think about it at all — in terms of the hot water bubbling up in some places, but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, ’cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot
Al “The Scientific Idiot” Gore
The Earth’s core temperature is estimated to be about 3273° Kelvin, 3,000° Celsius, 5432° Fahrenheit.
Geothermal adaptation for use as an alternative energy source is certainly NOT, I repeat… NOT… “relatively new.”
Geothermal to Electric Power generation has been around in the US since 1922.
A group of Italians built an electric generator at Lardarello in 1904. Their generator was powered by the natural steam erupting from the earth.
The first attempt to develop geothermal power in the United States came in 1922 at The Geysers steam field in northern California. The project failed because the pipes and turbines of the day could not stand up to the abrasion and corrosion of the particles and impurities that were in the steam. Later, a small but successful hydrothermal plant opened at the Geysers in 1960. Today 28 plants are operating there.
Electricity is now produced from geothermal energy in 21 countries, including the United States.
Iceland has been using Geothermal Power Generation for YEARS, Mr Gore…
New Drill Bits have been developed for drilling down two kilometers to tap into Geothermal energy, you say??? Better tell Baker Hughes…
Baker Hughes Drill Bit Development still in progress… temps above 400° problematic:
