Geothermal == oil

We're finally starting to notice that drilling really, really deep holes in the ground is a transferable skill. You can get oil or run a geothermal electricity generator. You only need about 100 dC difference to run a turbine.
There's all the clean and sustainably produced energy you need about 8 km under your feet.

You electrical types confuse me... 100 decicoulombs to run a turbine? I'd have thought 100°C.

Of course, that should have been 100K
