The earth like our bodies needs to be taken care of. If we keep destroying and polluting it we won't have clean water, clean air or a healthy place to live.

Answer: Geothermal eergy has many advantages in that it is clean and reliable over the long therm. It is however not accesable in all areas of the Earth. It is limited to areas with active vulcanism in the geologically recent past or with specific geological formations. In North America this would be primarily limited to the Rocky Mountains
