This is not related to Louisiana but it touches topics we talk about here.
The Hawaii volcano eruption news is covered on the FC blog. Keith M. sent some good information about the lava-hit geothermal plant in the vicinity of the volcano, Puna.

Hawaii Volcanic Eruption Intentionally Triggered to Generate Massive Tsunami?
By Dr. Michael Salla May 15, 2018
” . . . From its inception, there has been controversy over the wisdom of the Puna Geothermal Venture being built within an active volcanic region with regularly occurring lava flows. However, what most aroused local opposition is direct scientific evidence that the powerplant has been using fracking techniques as a means of generating heat for power generation.
Scientists have established a clear linkage between fracking and earthquake activity in multiple studies . . . “
” . . . While the owners of the Puna Geothermal Venture insist that fracking has not been used, independent studies confirm otherwise. “
” . . . It is quite plausible that the Rothschild’s 1977 support and financial backing made Bronicki and Ormat Industries obligated to do the Rothschild’s bidding in some way. This makes it possible that Bronicki was instructed by the Rothschilds to build the geothermal facility in a dangerous volcanic region for a hidden purpose despite the inherent risk in building a facility in such a dangerous area. . . . “
And this is a comment on the article –
“I don’t know anything abt how geothermal works but I think the article did address this?
“While the owners of the Puna Geothermal Venture insist that fracking has not been used, independent studies confirm otherwise. A Duke University study of the eight wells used by the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) concluded:
The region of high fracture density is also consistent with the areas of the highest fluid production at PGV…. The production records are proprietary to the PGV parent company, Ormat, so tables and diagrams are not included in the dissertation. However, it is indicted that wells that penetrate the area where we calculate the greatest fracture density have higher fluid flow than elsewhere in the PGV lease. [pp. 55-56]
Essentially, the Duke University study suggested that fracking was occurring at the Puna Geothermal Venture via the injection of pressurized fluids into the wells and surrounding rocks.””
