    Geothermal Energy: The Answer to the Energy Problem? Abstract: The global community is currently searching for new sources of energy that are not detrimental to the environment, that are cost effective, and that will be able to provide for the current and future demand for energy. Geothermal energy is one of the promising alternatives to fossil fuels because it releases no toxic or greenhouse gas emissions, its current cost is decreasing yearly, and it is a continuous source of energy. It is a

    Geothermal energy is the heat from the Earth’s. The geothermal energy is very sustainable and the resources of the energy can range from the shallow ground (Geothermal Energy, 2010). The hot water and hot rocks are found underneath the Earth’s surface deep down with very high temperatures and it is called magma. The ground water is 10 feet of the Earth’s surface (Geothermal Energy, 2010). The temperature is very constant between 55 and 60. The geothermal heat pumps into the cool buildings and pumps

    Geothermal energy is the harvesting of heat energy stored in the inner depth of the Earth’s crust [1]. This internal heat comes from two primary sources: radioactive decay of elements and primordial heat resulting from the initial formation of the Earth [2]. The earth’s outer layer acts as an insulator to the heat, which is why geothermal energy involves digging deep into the soil and pumping the heat from those hotter zones. Heat resources are not evenly distributed under the Earth’s surface.

    Geothermal Energy In today's world, we are stuck in a constant debate about efficient energy usage and production. Many have gone to alternative fuel sources do to the rising cost of fossil fuels and the environmental damage caused by the burning of fossil fuels. One option that goes largely unexplored is geothermal energy. Geothermal energy is not only a much more environmentally-friendly power source than fossil fuels, but the cost of installation is not significantly more expensive than the installation

    Geothermal Energy as a Renewable Energy Source “Geothermal energy is a remnant heat derived from the foundation of the planet 4.5 billion years ago, as well as heat from the radioactive decay of naturally occurring unstable isotopes” (Glassley, 2010, p.43). This type of energy is considered renewable because it produces extremely small amounts of greenhouse gases, which is threatening to the Earth. Geothermal energy can be used for various reasons such as heating and cooling buildings, heating pumps

    Throughout the years electricity has become a source of energy that cannot seem to be replaced; however there are many different alternatives to this source of energy. One specific alternative is geothermal energy, which might be just as effective as electricity, but much less harmful to the environment. Electricity, although very helpful, produces fuels that might be harming not only our world, but our human society. To power electricity we must use fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas

    Geothermal Energy Geothermal energy is a superior source of energy because it is constantly being produced. Radioactive decay of nuclei with long half lives that were imbedded in the Earth’s interior during its genesis accounts for seventy percent of the globe’s internal energy. The remainder of this energy is derived from either the residual heat left over form the Earth’s formation, gravitational forces, or meteorite impacts. Geothermal energy is available anywhere on the planet. On

    GEOTHERMAL ENERGY Geothermal energy is one of the oldest sources of energy. It is simply using and reusing (reusable energy) heat from the inside of the earth. Most of the geothermal energy comes from magma, molten or partially molten rock. Which is why most geothermal resources come from regions where there are active volcanoes. Hot springs, geysers, pools of boiling mud, and fumaroles are the most easily exploited sources. The ancient Romans used hot springs to heat baths and homes, and similar
