  1. nice set of podcasts. how about a part 3 on the best ways to conserve energy. the greenest energy is the energy you don’t use.
    as far as geothermal, i heard that new zealand has quit expanding there geothermal because it was messing with their geysers. might just be hearsay.

    1. No part 3 unfortunately, but we can always put that together for another episode. Haven’t heard anything about New Zealand’s geothermal industry, but it’s also not usually on my reading list so that doesn’t say much.
