The Earth has a diameter of 12756 km. The core of our earth is extremely hot, the temperature can reach up to 5000 ˚ C. This heat is transferred to the crust of the earth, which then emits to the atmosphere. This power is practically endless and sustainable. This is called geothermal or geothermal energy.

This energy is absorbed by the earth's crust has therefore two ways to have a positive environmental impact. There are fewer fossil fuels and the direct heating of the atmosphere is limited To make use of geothermal there must be an aquifer. This makes it possible to pump up warm water from 3 km depth to be used for the heating of greenhouses.
