    There’s two traits of geothermal energy that make it particularly eco friendly- its availability and its cleanliness. 

    Because geothermal energy is heat generated from the Earth, it’s really available anywhere that has heat escaping, such as geysers. This energy is available every hour of every day of every year, unlike wind or solar power which depend on a resource that is not always available. There are many more aspects of geothermal energy that make it clean- be sure to check out the cited article.

    Because geothermal energy can be extracted without burning fossil fuels, it’s also very clean. Geothermal fields produce about 1/6 of the carbon dioxide tat a natural-gas plant produces and flash plants only emit steam- no air or liquid emissions.
