SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Heat from the earth can be used as an energy source in many ways, from large and complex power stations to small and relatively simple pumping systems. This heat energy, known as geothermal energy, can be found almost anywhere as far away as remote deep wells in Indonesia and as close as the dirt in our backyards

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
This heat originates primarily in the core. Geothermal energy is steamed water (clean and sustainable) that comes from the earth’s surface. It is also generated in the earth’s core about 4000 miles below the surface. Most geothermal reservoirs of hot water are located in the western states, Alaska and Hawaii

Juan Mendez 2nd Period

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Geothermal energy is thermal energy that is generated and stored in Earth. Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature. Earth's geothermal energy originates from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive of minerals. The geothermal gradient, which is the difference in temperature between the core of the planet and its surface, drives a continuous conduction of thermal energy in the form of heat from the core to the surface.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Geo thermal systems heat and cool your house cheaper and better than fossil fuels will with gas going up pretty soon you would not be able to afford it. It might be costly to put one in your house initially but it will pay itself off in 3-5 years. Fossil fuels also produce carbon dioxide when burnt, adding to the greenhouse gases and contributing to climate change.

CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
Geothermal energy is a renewable source that comes from the heat in the earth's core. It has the potential to be one of the cleanest there is. Unfortunately, as with all energy sources, environmental concerns have been raised about geothermal energy. Geothermal energy comes from water deep in the ground. In the past this was utilised mainly from near tectonic fault lines.

i agree and you did a good job.

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
This is how it works When groundwater seeps below the earth's surface near a dormant volcano the water is heated by reservoirs of molten rock usually at depths of up to 9,800 feet (3,000 m). Wells similar to those used to produce crude oil and natural gas are drilled to recover the water. Once captured steam and hot water are separated. The steam is cleaned and sent to the power plant. The separated water is returned to the reservoir, where it helps to regenerate the steam source.

Geo thermal systems heat and cool your house cheaper and better than fossil fuels will with gas going up pretty soon you would not be able to afford it. It might be costly to put one in your house initially but it will pay itself off in 3-5 years. Also there is a company called ECONAR that builds a heat pump that will cool heat and do 50 to 100% of your hot water heat.
CONCERNS (Problems with the new energy)
There is not. Geothermal energy is renewable and clean of any pollution including greenhouse gases.

COMMENTS
It is more safe to have and cheaper that people could afford.
