free renewable energy.

had a thought maybe someone who knows could run with it or shut it down but wanted feed back.

A closed looped system. like a hydro plant but insted of water, chlorine. heat the chlorine by digging deep into the earth to heat it since it has a low boiling point. chlorine vapors spin a turbine, then cools and spins another turbine on the way back down. this is the simple of it. would something like this be feasible I wonder? maybe someone smarter than me could shed some light on if it was a totally stupid idea.... one never knows.

      Jun 26 2013: Really, John? There is no such thing as a stupid question? That would be a good post in the Debate section of TED. My wife, a school teacher, laughed uncontrollably and told me, "Yeah, that one!", when I asked her if there were any stupid questions. I'm NOT insinuating Daniel's question is stupid.
