There PLENTY of HEAT down there for ALL our energy needs!

SciShow takes you down the deepest hole in the world - Russia's Kola Superdeep Borehole - explaining who dug it and why, and
what we learned about Earth in the process, such as the layers of water, created out of super high-pressures, from the hydrogen and oxygen squeezed out of the surrounding rock strata, a phenomenon never before observed; also found were single-celled animals, found not in the customary limestone deposits of former oceans but likely preserved, due to the extraordinarily high pressures.

By the time the geologists got to the 12-km-deep (7.45 miles) area, where the rock dated 2.7 nillion years old, the temperatures down there were extremely hot - 180 degrees Celcius/356 Fahrenheit and the "rock," at that depth, according to the geologists, behaved more like "plastic."

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
