Faulty reporting

The New York Times finds fault with a new geothermal energy technique. The technique takes advantage of an abundant energy source--heat from the Earth's core. The minor downside is that it also causes earthquakes. Oops.

A new project is beginning 40 miles east of the San Andreas fault, in an area that already experiences swarms of earthquakes associated with previous projects.

Maybe it's time to go back to the drawing board on this one.
