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.

Carol’s video has been viewed nearly 50,000 times in the past week. Check it out — and please consider sharing! (Music by Jon Luc Hefferman.)
