What about in the winter though?
Very awesome idea anyway.

Could take a while!

On the plus side, roads need regular maintenance anyways, so this could possibly be worked into existing schedules.

I don't think this will ever happen though -- but I would think using this idea for like parking lots, and hotels and other private property could happen. Who knows.

It probably won't be as effective in the winter, but it can still cut down on resources in the other parts of the year.

Looks like this is going to make Russia very... envious of other, warmer, countries.

Conversely, places like Vegas or Dubai could conceivably do well with this sort of system.

I hope we could put the copper pipes underneath the highway roads of Australian outback where it received plenty of sunshine in hot summer and even in the cold winter.

Hee Hee, possibly in the Simpson Desert!!!!

yes, we invest more amount for the construction of roads, we may get free energy and electricity through the setting of copper pipes in these large constructed roads. it's really shows our day to day technology development,but nowadays mostly in winter seasons we face many accidents.because winter months can pose unique and sometimes dangerous challenges for drivers. Shorter days and more hours of darkness may cause people to feel sleepy earlier in the day, and too often, behind the wheel.is there any solution to this problem?

Too bad Oil isn't running out nearly as fast as everyone thinks. We have enough to keep going for several generations yet. Stop worrying.

What about when the day does come when sceptics, scientists and everyone else under the sun all agree that yes, we don't have enough oil left?

[sarcasm]Screw them right?

Not our problem! Let them deal with it when it comes up!

Because we've got OIL and we're not afraid to use it![/sarcasm]

Yes i know that we've got oil. Many people who don't believe what some random told them would tell you the same thing. But it doesn't mean we shouldn't be irresponsible about things and leave future generations to struggle with the problem. If we can do something about it now, why shouldn't we? Because it's not a problem?

Come on...

it would not work in country such as canada... unless they drained the pipes every winter

efg. Yes, I know we need to start research now. But we don't need to be looking frantically for new options, like Pickens-shithead. His 'Plan' Requires more than 400 miles of power lines to reach the NEAREST population center. Meaning any place larger than a hut. If a line breaks, you spend more money finding it and fixing it than you end up saving. That kind of desperation is moronic.

yes, we should look into better and cheaper fuel sources. No, we don't need to put pipe under our roadways or any of the rest of this 'The oil is running out!' bullshit.
