Dear GeoJoe, Thank you for your submission. While your proposal had some nice components, in its current form we have decided not to select it as a finalist. We hope that you will consider improving and resubmitting this idea next year, but with a stronger focus on specific actions. For instance, the actions proposed include contacting government representatives and insisting that governments include propoerty sales tax breaks and other incentives for new construction using geo-exchange. This is a worthy goal, but we would be more interested to see either a more detailed outline of the impacts of such tax breaks, or a suggestion on how to mobilize a political effort to implement such tax breaks.
