The Dumbya dollar makes it possible for them to buy their citizenship.

They cycle to to work at 18 hour/day jobs and will be good for the U.
S. economy.

And best of all they don't spend a lot of time oiling their AK-47s
hissing "if I git pushed too far."

Then pump it out and ferment it into EtOH!

You know about as much about the Chinese as you
do economics, is that about the size of it?


They leave those functions to the public sector in China.

Maybe it is nit-picking, but the source of the energy that heats the
Earth's interior is just radioactivity, not fission. But it is correct
that the temperature builds up because the energy can't get out
easily, and over the billions of years, it has built up a lot.

I have no idea how the Van Allen belts can be affected by something
that stays hidden in the Earth for the most part. Color me skeptical.

The convection currents within Earth's magma carry charged particles
along with the convection flow. This works just like a charge in a
conductor (wire) that forms an electromagnet. This magma convection
current flow of charged particles is the source of Earth's magnetic
poles, and the magnetic field that captures the Van Allen Belt
charges.

I expect it is cooler now that it has been historically. The
coalescense will also have generated very high temperatures.

The field of a bar magnet does not come from bright white and red
paint, nor the marking of "N" and "S", but from "domain alignment".
The core of the planet is not terribly conductive, and if charges get
separated, and the magma flows the charges with it, a magnetic field
is generated.

And it is is *good* to be skeptical, especially since we can't open up
this black box... or at least I hope we don't.

Default Re: If we keep digging hole on Earth? What will happen?

its a very informative post i have no knowledge but when i read the comment its a very knowledgeable but i think that Don't need a hole nearly that deep to get energy from the core.and the last one answer is the no.
