We are told that the sun is the source of life on earth, and it
clearly makes a large contribution. However, the earth's core also
appears to contribute. How much of a contribution does it make?
Relative to the sun?
Also, does the heat from the earth's core "drive" ocean currents to
any significant degree? If not, what is the source of this energy?
