Nuclear Energy vs. Geothermal Energy

efficient, clean, high out-put energy production. As a civilization we need not focus on what the past has held for energy production but rather what the present and future hold for us. Two key options are the long lasting, high out-put but environmentally hazardous option which is nuclear fission (nuclear power) and the safe but potential ground water contamination hazard which is geothermal energy. This paper will point out strictly fact based information on both forms of energy and which one shows the...
