    I believe that although geothermal energy is an alternative in the short term, it is not however a permanent solution.
    The amount of damage that may be caused by geothermal energy plants, or GEP’s for short, far outweigh the benefits, just from the cost of damages.

    It’s also far to expensive to build in the first place, and takes up a very large portion of land to effectively collect the heat.
