Let’s cut to the chase: The purported NASA plan to “defuse” Yellowstone is pure science fiction.
OK, now that we have that out of the way, let’s get into the details of the numerous articles that have jumped all over what might best be termed a “thought experiment” by scientists at NASA. Yellowstone, the massive caldera in the middle of North America, is definitely a volcanic threat. Is it a high volcanic threat? Not as much as other, much more active volcanoes in the United States. However, it has produced some really massive eruptions in its history—well, three times in its history dating back to ~2.1 million years ago.

We're getting good at that technology but not that good, 10km and practical is a pipe dream.
If your going around poking 10km holes in the ground you could extract energy from pretty much anywhere on the planet.
The mines in south Africa produce almost enough heat and they're on some of the thickest crust on earth... The ocean bed would be best though.
