Geothermal is possible anywhere, as long as you don't live on solid rock.

The birth of hyper irrational, hyper stupid anti nuclear movement.
https://youtu.be/mI6IzPCmIW8

These guys were just a bunch of selfish, entitled, unwashed, dope smoking, anti populationist hippies who were worried about California's population doubling in the next 20 years. Thats it.
And they figured the best way to stop that was to block water infrastructure and block electrical power generation build out.
The damage they did 60 years ago still persists to this day.
Well they failed, all they did was manage to make the state suck more.
But wait there's more, in the ultimate betrayal, the anti nukes took money from the coal power lobby. It's a dam modern Greek tragedy. Blocking dams to prevent people from having water and electricity, blocking nuclear to keep people from having unlimited clean safe energy, taking money from the coal Barrons to build dirty 1960s straight out the smoke stack coal power plant. Wow.
Environmentalists are some of the worst people on earth.
I think that deserves it's own post.

'Forget It, Jake, It's Chinatown:' What The Movie Line Means
Forget it, Jake, it's Chinatown, uttered by Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) in the final moments of Roman Polanski's Chinatown, is easily one of the most chilling film moments that audiences have ever witnessed. Its meaning is open to interpretation, but it has something to do with the futility of trying to understand or change a chaotic, even evil world.
That's not environmentalism, that's population control. [I will watch the video later]

And the fear is a quite effective tool for those seeking population control.

Expanding on what FreeBeard was talking about.

It is dependent on them solving the engineering problems of lowering a laser and evacuating the vaporized material.

Does a hole need shoring, or will a hole shaped structure in rock maintain integrity?

The deeper one drills, the rock becomes hotter and gummy. The hope is to drill lateral holes once a specific temperature is reached. Thus my inclusion of CO2 turbines versus water/steam turbines. The CO2 heat exchange can extract heat energy at a lower peak temperature.

The starter hole is conventional, but once the laser takes over it creates a glass wall automagically.

I don't take credit.

Urban Dictionary: automagically
Automatically, but in a way that, for some reason (typically because it is too complicated, or too ugly, or perhaps even too trivial), the speaker doesn't feel like explaining to you. This term is quite old, going back at least to the mid-70s in jargon and probably much earlier. The word `automagic' occurred in advertising (for a shirt-ironing gadget) as far back as the late 1940s.
