The incredible capability to generate clean and renewable energy from a volcano... used to create digital tokens that fluctuate in perceived value based on some rich guy's tweets.

What bothers me is that they could close fossil- and coal-based powerplants, and potentially sell the excess energy (if any) to earn more money to develop the country, but instead the guy just wants to sail a boat that's not even legal yet.

Never vote on populists, please.

El Salvador decision to use this "Green Power" for BitCoin / CryptoCurrency instead of helping it's people lower "Electrical Costs" should be a HUGE Red Flag to anybody in El Salvador.

Lets see...

Bukele said in a follow-up tweet that LaGeo’s engineers dug a new well on Wednesday capable of providing “approximately 95MW of 100% clean, 0 emissions geothermal energy” from El Salvador’s volcanoes.
In their lava and gasses volcanos emit: H2O, CO2, SO2, HCl, H2S, CO among other things. Digging a hole to let those escape into the atmosphere is N-O-T 100% clean with 0 emissions like they say.
