We've learned a lot more about the deep geosphere since 1988, as my colleagues at survey will happily confirm, and it is already possible to visit operating deep geothermal plants, in geological settings very similar to Newcastle, at Soultz-sous-Forets on Franco-German border and at Landau-in-der-Pfalz, Germany.
