From Marti:
It was a surprise to me that there are still geothermal speculators on the Big Island. I thought the community ran them out of town long ago. And for good reason, too, according to this story.

Super offensive! And they did it more than once! Do they have a permit for this sort of thing?

Scientists disclose 2005 drill into Big Isle magma chamber
