Canada’s gift: geothermal energy

Want good jobs and good clean growth?  Embrace your natural assets Canada!!

Canada is the only country on the Pacific Ring of Fire that doesn’t use geothermal energy on a commercial scale.  More than 30 years ago, B.C. was instructed to investigate geothermal as a cheaper, more environmentally friendly alternative to building mega hydro dams, such as the Site C dam on the Peace River — but that never happened.

DeSmog Canada’s Carol Linnitt recently travelled to Iceland to learn more about geothermal energy, how it’s used commercially and what potential Canada has to bring this renewable resource online.  See:  Geothermal could put thousands from Alberta’s oil and gas sector back to work.
