Geothermal As Renewable Energy

I found this rather interesting. According to the US Energy Information Administration, by 2016 geothermal resources fueled more than 44% of Nevada's renewable electricity generation and nearly 10% of Nevada's total net electricity generation, a larger share than any other state. Nevada ranked second in US for geothermal electricity generation that year. I suspect geothermal heating/cooling systems combined with very simple building practices like attic fans and front porches would be effective (at least as supplements) in the midwest and east coast than here in the west coast but that the Republican skew of the region prevents any action on this (white supremacy and climate change denialism go hand in hand).
