Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

You have to be the most ignorant person ever on this board.
Beneath the surface there are aquifers. It is the aquifers that transport the heat from immediately beneath the facility to a location where the heat can be dissapated.
Otherwise, you goddam idiot, the heat would just rise right back into the goddam building that just pumped it away.
You haven't got a clue what you're talking about.
I thought you were this great intelligent geologist.

But hey, it turns out you must be the pretend geologist that doesn't now sh*t.

Ground loops exchange heat through contact with the earth. No water required.

In vertical systems, the size of the system generally sets how much "hole" is required. Some say 150 feet per ton, some say 175.

So, my 5 ton unit has 750' total or two hols at 375'.

Aquifers or not.

The holes are drilled, the loops installed & then grouted with specially formulated grout to enhance the heat transfer.

My God, does your employer know how GD dumb you are??? No wonder I have to subsidize your paycheck.

Flack runs a "pump & dump" ( I refer not to pump anything back into the aquifer. My water is too hard & would damage the exchange equipment)

Flack mentioned horizontal which is fine as long as it is deep enough.

You can use a pond if its big & deep enough.

You can use a standing column where you utilize a 600 foot hole where you take from the bottom & return to the top.

None of these depend on aquifers to function.

While promising that Republicans won’t abandon their oversight role, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Sunday expressed support for the Obama administration’s use of drones.

In an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,”Mr. Cantor, Virginia Republican, said he and his colleagues soon will be “getting into examining” a recent Justice Department memo stating it’s legal to use drones to target U.S. citizens in extreme circumstances. That memo was first obtained by NBC News last week.

But while Mr. Cantor and others surely will review the constitutional ramifications of the memo, the No. 2 Republican in the House backed drone strikes as an alternative to putting American forces in harm’s way.

“Suffice it to say, we have a terrorist threat out there. Islamist extremists are out there still trying to kill Americans and go after what we stand for in this world,” Mr. Cantor said.“If we’re going to continue to be the leading force for peace, prosperity and security in this world, we’re going to have to have the tools necessary to do so … we can strike that balance to protect America, to employ technologies to do that, and at the same time, upholding constitutional rights.

How many times have you frauds run away from answering those questions. The questions remain unanswered. Therefore, the questions are still pertinent.
Let's ask them again:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-time video feed?
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Got an answer for any of these questions?
And you ran from my questions since this morning so i'll ask again. Why are you so worried about the 4 dead in Benghazi, Libya, but have nothing to say about the 7 EMBASSIES, not consulates, EMBASSIES attacked & dozens murdered under bush's watch?

Why are you so worried about F&F when reagan gave saddam wmds in the iraq iran war, only for both bush's to charge saddam with having wmds later?

Why aren't you interested in the fact that 2wr bush's & the bin ladens were business partners even up until thee approach of 9/11? Bin laden bailed out bush 41s failure of an oil company on numerous occasions & bin ladens brother was even at a investor dinner accompanied by bush senior when thee 9/11 attacks happened. Why aren't you outraged?

Why aren't you outraged that bush 43 sacrificed over 4,000 American servicemen/women on an absolute lie or that he took this country clear progress to a deep depression in no time? Answer those questions!

This is further proof of your lies and ignorance,Dweeb.
Geothermal heating systems have no need for water, you nitwit!! They cannot, by law, tap into an aquifier.
You stupid enough to believe there are aquifiers everywhete??
You're a stupid person. Even a cursory look would have better informed you.
And you claim to be a geologist!! I saw your earlier post where you said too many geothermal systems would heat the earth too much!!
ROFLMAO
That's like saying too many air conditioners in a neighborhood would raise the ambient temperature for the neighborhood!! Pure stupidity!!
----------
""HOW A GEOTHERMAL SYSTEM WORKS
Throughout the year, outdoor temperatures fluctuate with the changing seasons. However, about four to six feet below the Earth's surface, Wisconsin temperatures remain relatively moderate and consistent all year (about 50 degrees F, in WI). This is because the Earth absorbs 47% of all heat and energy from the sun that reaches the surface. A geothermal system circulates a water-based fluid through a buried loop system to take advantage of these consistent temperatures.
GEOTHERMAL HEAT CYCLE
During the heating process, fluid in the loop absorbs heat from the earth. It is transferred to the unit located in the home. The geothermal system distributes the warm, comfortable air by either a conventional duct system or radiant heat system.
----------
The heat exchange is with the earth, nitwit!! If you have a pond on your property, the 'pond loop' system can be used, but is less efficient, as surface water temp. changes quickly.
Geothermal systems NEVER uses aquifiers, due to possible pollution from the anti freeze or other chemicals in the geothermal loop.
You are the biggest idiot on this thread.

Hate to be the barer of bad news but as usual you are wrong again. I've been pumping water out of the ground and putting it back for the 22 years I've lived here. It was installed at least 8 years before that. It was one of the reasons we bought it. I know of quite a few others that do as well.

Yes, you should have. In fact, listening to you, one would think you did, but you don't. Is that what you're saying? It's not really an assumption anyway. You're obviously bitter and angry, either that or you've developed a really good act. Bitter and angry people don't get laid, it's academic. So you see, all I did was take a couple of very obvious facts and knit the ends together. It ain't brain surgery.
Now as to quantification. I've been here four years or so, I know what pissed off angry conservative sounds like. You're at the top of that list currently.
See? No assumptions whatsoever!
The fact that you are listening speaks volumes and tells me that your only purpose here is to ridicule and berate and BTW, also tells me that you are sex starved and at present the only thing on your mind.

Dubya = The GOP’s Jimmy Carter

Jeffrey Toobin wonders how come Republican ex-presidents and presidential candidates fall down the memory hole. Excerpt:

George W. Bush, in contrast, gives the Republicans their own version of the Jimmy Carter problem. Some Republicans criticized Obama for campaigning in 2008 and 2012 as if Bush were still on the ballot, but from a political perspective Obama probably did not run hard enough against Bush, who is much less popular than Carter. It’s true that Americans generally soften toward their Presidents over time, but a George W. revival does not appear imminent. It’s hard to imagine that many voters in 2016 will be pining for a restoration of the Bush years.(This could be an especially pressing problem for one prospective candidate in 2016, George W.’s brother Jeb.)

It was a different story when Bush enacted the homeland security laws listening in to every convo and communication searching for terrorists. Funny how the worm turns, now its offensive because Obama is in charge. The difference between him and Bush is that he actually is getting the bad guys, not talking about it.
The difference between the two is that the Boy Messiah is worse by many orders of magnitude. He saw a bad thing and, being the opportunist that he is, made it even worse.

Your entire life is spent lying prone before your media heroes and yet you dare to judge those who stand on their feet. Hypocrite.
