There is a lot of energy right under our feet, a relic from Earth's hot past as a ball of plasma. But how much can geothermal energy realistically do for us? What technologies are currently being pursued, what are the risks, and is it even carbon neutral? In this video we have collected all the relevant facts and numbers for you.

The footage of Staufen at the beginning of the video comes from Tom Scott's video that you can watch in full here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOgle...
