Energy vs Climate in the news

March 2021

Can’t get enough of Energy vs Climate? Then check out this month’s round-up of the show’s co-hosts in the news, below.

This month, we are also looking for guest ideas for our upcoming show on geothermal. Guests should be knowledgeable about the geothermal power production technologies, but ideally not proponents of any specific company or technology type. They should be ready to talk about the opportunities but also challenges with the energy source and may come from anywhere in the world. They don’t need to know the details of the Alberta situation in particular. If you are someone, or know someone who fits the bill, please send a note to energyvsclimate@gmail.com with “Geothermal Guest” in the subject line.

Now on to the news…
