Documentary — Nebraska Retiree Uses Earth’s Heat to Grow Oranges in Snow

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Tropical fruits can be grown in subzero climates with geothermal energy
  • The only heat source for geothermal greenhouses is the Earth’s heat, which is 52 degrees at 8 feet deep
  • Energy costs to run a geothermal greenhouse are less than a dollar a day
  • Harmful herbicides and pesticides can be avoided with geothermal greenhouses
  • Geothermal greenhouse produce is marketable at local farmer's markets
  • The crops can be more profitable because there are few transportation costs involved

This chemically-based method of industrial agriculture has irrevocably damaged the soil. It kills the microorganisms that provide the nutrients needed for plant growth and nutrition, depleting the soil minerals that enrich our food.

Because of soil depletion, fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than those grown today; each successive generation of pesticide-resistant, gene-altered fruits and vegetables now is less nutritious than the one before.
