Ask Slashdot: Why Isn't Geothermal Energy Getting As Much Attention As Solar and Wind?

mrwireless writes: YouTube channel Real Engineering has posted a great video on the potential (and downsides) of geothermal power. I think it would be great to discuss this video on Slashdot, since in discussions about climate change, geothermal rarely comes up as a viable alternative. The video mentions things like:- Could power our needs twice over- New technology makes it possible in more locations- Works night and day - Could be cost competitive (according to an MIT study) - Workers from the oil drilling industry could find new jobs in this sector So: why isn't geo-thermal energy getting as much attention as solar and wind?
