need for limitless renewable energy

Post by justme2 »

Geothermal energy potential
There is one place we haven’t taped yet that could power our electrical need for all time to come. Below are the facts and now all we must do is find a way to tap this limitless source of energy. I hope some here find the time to explore this and add new ideas on it’s potential to power our never ending need for more and more energy.

The cold seawater is heated by hot magma and reemerges to form the vents. Seawater in hydrothermal vents may reach temperatures of over 700° Fahrenheit.

The deep ocean is made up of horizontal layers of equal density. Much of this deep ocean water is between 0-3 degrees Celsius (32-37.5 degrees Fahrenheit)! It's really, really cold down there! There is a neat program that is measuring the temperature and salinity of ocean surface waters around the world

A hydrothermal vent 2,500 meters deep experiences 250 atmospheres, or 3,672.5 pounds per square inch.

There is seawater at temperatures over 700° Fahrenheit right next to seawater at 32-37.5 degrees Fahrenheit under a pressure of 3,672 pounds per square inch.

Clearly there is potential energy here to be tapped as well as mineral deposits that are rich in iron, copper, zinc, and other metals.
What are we waiting for, let’s tap this energy source which will power our energy needs for all time to come?

I think you misunderstand a bit.

Geothermal energy can be utilized everywhere on the grounds that a thick hole is drilled 100 meters into the Earth, typically or so, and fitted with 2 smaller pipes connected with one another to be able to hold a circuitry of water going around and around, cold water into the Earth and warm water up by one or more pumps at the cold side.

So there is a great potential for generating geothermally sourced electrical power all over Earth by this. You get electrical power by converting hot water into electrical power. So for all this time, the heat down in plain Earth deep enough has been underestimated greatly!

Best wishes! :study: :D 8-)
