Coverage of geothermal since March 12, 2021.

Geothermal power generation potential raised by both NDP and Sask. Party

"...Environment Minister Warren Kaeding was asked several questions about that, but one of his answers referenced the Deep Earth Energy Production project near Torquay. He said, “Well, I would say even directly supporting the electricity is going to be generated to support electric vehicles, SaskPower has made a commitment that they will be going up to 50 per cent renewable by 2030, which isn't very, very long from now. So you've seen a number of facilities that have been built on a commercial scale, solar facilities that have been built on a on a commercial scale..."

Vincent Callebaut's futuristic Pollinator Park can be visited in VR

"...If you've ever seen one of Vincent Callebaut Architectures' futuristic sustainable designs and wondered what it would be like to visit, you now can – sort of. The architect has created a conceptual mixed-use project described as a "refugee camp for insects" to raise awareness on the declining numbers of pollinating insects that's viewable in VR or through a web browser. Bees and other pollinating insects are declining at an alarming rate..."

Provinces, not Ottawa, should decide carbon pricing: Jack Mintz in the Financial Post Macdonald-Laurier Institute

"...The argument for carbon pricing, which I support, is that markets know best how to reduce the impact of greenhouse gases without onerous government interventions. Pricing is the least costly approach to achieving emission reductions. Revenues should be used to alleviate the impact of the tax on middle- and lower-income Canadians, protect business competitiveness and fund research into carbon-reducing technologies like geothermal energy, battery storage and hydrogen..."

‘Simply wrong': Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe reacts to carbon tax ruling

"...The Supreme Court of Canada found that climate change poses a real, serious threat to the world and is serious enough to allow the federal government to step in. “The (Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act) is constitutional,” Chief Justice Richard Wagner wrote in the decision. “Although this restriction may interfere with a province’s preferred balance between economic and environmental considerations, it is necessary to consider the interests that would be harmed — owing to irreversible consequences for the environment, for human health and safety, and for the economy — if Parliament were unable to constitutionally address the matter at a national level..."

Saskatchewan NDP respond to carbon tax defeat at Supreme Court

"...“Justin Trudeau must also acknowledge that the carbon tax disproportionately affects the Saskatchewan economy. With that fact comes a responsibility on the federal government to make dedicated investments that will make a difference here including support for workers in our hard-hit industries and helping to create good sustainable jobs in renewable energy. Saskatchewan has many opportunities in biofuels, geothermal, solar and wind energy, but we need the federal support to kickstart these new industries..."
