It caused earthquakes!
Geothermal Project in California Is Shut Down. By James Glanz. New York Times.
The person who emailed this story to me wrote, “Boy – If you’ve ever read a geothermal EA to destroy the nearest hot springs – BLM never says anything about the earthquakes …”

I have been skeptical of geothermal energy using hot springs and geothermal anomalies, which this seems to have been. No hot spring seems safe, nor even Yellowstone Park when there is a boomlet for geothermal power.
