You would think there would be a safe way to harness the heat for energy purposes. Maybe there is a way to snuff the fire by restricting oxygen. With all the talk about global warming and fuel shortages it’s funny that this thing continues to burn. Someday fossil fuels will run out and a new form of fuel will be required. It is simple inevitability.
