The House last week voted to revise the "Gang of Eight" system, under which the president discloses the most sensitive intelligence operations and covert activities to only a handful of Senate and House leaders and not the full membership of the both chambers' intelligence committees.
The successful wells have tapped into an area where fluid is found at a high temperature with sufficient pressure and rock permeability. A change in pressure (due to the presence of the well) forces steam, (containing toxic hydrogen sulfide)* and brine (containing silica and heavy metals) to the wellhead. The steam powers turbines directly and/or by heats a secondary fluid, pentane (an extremely hazardous chemical), which runs turbines, is cooled and re-heated again. After the steam has been used by the power plant, it is disposed with the brine by either dumping it onto the ground and creating surface "ponds," as was the case at the former HGP-A facility, or reinjecting it back underground via injection wells, as is the case at the Puna Geothermal Venture facility .

A couple of things I've noted going through the video.
Ormat recieved the Rothschild Prize, that's a rather tenuous link and unless there is some sort of business relationship or contract between Ormat and any Rothschild fiduciary entity, I fail to see how merely receiving the award from them implies any sort of control by them.
Don't get me wrong, I know how far some of the red shields tentacles reach, but I think this one is rather a stretch.
Leak has been doing since last night. It is still not under control. A US team was flown in to help get this thing under control, but that is not public record yet. It will come out later, I think.
