Few would debate that we are in very uncertain times. Energy costs are a key factor in this uncertainly. The world has run on carbon energy since man learned how to make fire. Wood, peat, coal, oil, and gas, ethanol, and pellets are all carbon.
Carbon is dirty and much of it is coming to an end. As we take ever more desperate and complex measures, costs and risk rise. While some carbon based energy, such as ethanol and pellets, are considered “renewable,” they must still be burned to create energy and that pollutes the air. With increasingly violent weather patterns resulting from global warming, the burning of carbons to create energy becomes less desirable. Expensive measures must be taken to clean up the smoke.
In an effort to escape the negative costs and consequences of carbon, we started building nuclear power plants. We never did figure out how to dispose of the byproducts of that process. Nuclear plants around the United States are aging and many have been decommissioned. After several serious accidents, one of which is the ongoing disaster in Japan, few view nuclear energy as a viable alternative.
There are a few sources of energy that can be utilized with minimal harm to life or the planet. They all utilize the natural energy sources on the planet. In full, they are the earth herself, sun, wind, and waves. While all of these have a place in producing energy for tomorrow, the option that is most feasible, most durable, and most dependable for heating and cooling is the earth herself. That is the energy we call “geothermal.” The same energy system will both heat and cool your home. Not only does it heat your home in the winter, it provides air conditioning in the summer. It works when it’s sunny. It works when it’s cloudy. It works when it’s raining. It is clean, dependable, and safe. It is what WE use, and have used for years.
