If it screws the Saudis and their neighbors - I support it.

Another green energy or unlimited energy that can work is geothermal. Running pipes under warm ground with gas or water to generate steam. Areas west of the Miss have warm ground. The caldera in Yellowstone is real warm.

Geothermal is a like a free nuke reactor. Same principal to generate steam to run turbines.

Geothermal is super, except that in Northern California, at least, the migration of steam/heat is slow enough that over time there isn’t enough heat to keep things going. Unocal really worked hard to make it work. There certainly may be better fields to work with, including Yellowstone, if you don’t get blown to the moon sometime in the near future.

We really should tap the energy of Yellowstone, if only to take the pressure off of it. Yellowstone is actually an enormous volcano, and the next time it blows, it will extinguish all life for thousands of miles.

From what I’ve read, the water that comes back up is extremely caustic and damages the plumbing and machinery.
