Brent: if we agree with the Solar System origination from a dissection of the (original-bigger) Sun, even the geothermic is "solar" energy. Well, 'wind' definitely is, hydro indirectly.
We need lots more of usable energy for humankind's survival - to save energy <G> and I am an advocate of the geothermal, transforming the (oil-wells in exhaustion) into steam-production by lowering the level into 'hot' depth and pumping down desalinated water in a double conduit where the overheated steam can come up into turbines (all figured within today's circumstances). It will save profits to the oil magnets and is a pretty constant - hard-to-reduce source. Sea-based hydro is another good option. Just let's forget about coal, oil, nuke: coal and oil should be used as a staple for chemicals (only), nuke should NOT be used as fission-process. It is suicidal. Any additional thoughts? John M I have one objection to present terrestrial usage of solar energy: the (NOW!) existing technical level requires costly maintenance. I consider it temporary.
