This is an interview with Gail Tverberg, conducted by Justin and Seth of the Extraenvironmentalist.com in Montreal. She discusses how running short of cheap-to-extract oil affects the economy. It's about 13 minutes long.
Hawai‘i relies on oil for 90 percent of its energy usage. It is very dangerous.
We do have a way to protect ourselves, though, and that is geothermal. We are very fortunate: Very few people in the world have this opportunity.
Geothermal can provide another leg to our economic stool. But we do need everyone’s help to figure out how we can do this.
We don't want Hawai‘i to be the canary in the coal mine (where the canary dies). Instead, we want Hawaii to see a bright sunny morning where the canary sings.
