The figure of 3x the USA's energy use is a bit suspect for me. How do they work that out? Is that the total heatflow for the whole continent? It reminds me of the often heard statistic that the earth recieves enough sunlight in x minutes to power the world for a year. True, maybe, but there is no way at all that it will ever be possible to tap all of even most of that energy.
