We don’t know much about geothermal heating and heat pumps. We do know the technology is often touted by people like Andrew Cuomo as one of the solutions that will allow us to magically quit using fuel oil and gas for heating.

As we read about what they are doing, it dawned on us, what they’re doing is literally no different from drilling a natural gas well!
