The 1812 War was a long time forgotten.
Few of the history buffs and students know the series of bloody battles against Canada's southern neighbor. These include the slow killing of the Creek Indians during the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Andrew Jackson or the Battle of Bladensburg during which British forces captured and burned Washington DC. Canada is now good friends with the United States. The country is best known for news like Justin Bieber's source or energy-intensive, for the rich oil sands of Alberta, Athabasca-Wabasca, Peace River and Cold Lake Reserves. The estimates are variable, but Oil Sands InfoMine will restore recoverable deposits in about 170 billion barrels, and Canada will be placed behind Saudi Arabia. This oil is extracted from about 1 million barrels a day and is expected to grow to about 4 million barrels by 2020.
It's barely known about energy efficiency or renewable energy sources like solar, wind and geothermal energy. Just ask Bill McKib, an activist and author of Keystone Pipeline, one of the main opponents, who sends all "tar" waste oils to the Gulf Coast
But that may change. On June 21, 2012, Environment Canada and the United States Department of Energy released a second part of an ambitious plan that demonstrates that the two countries will jointly promote clean energy technologies. The effort is perhaps the least sexy name in the pure energy history that is called the US-Canada Pure Energy Dialogue Action Plan II or the CED is short.
The Plan Renews the US-Canada 2009 Commitment To work with carbon capture and storage technologies, clean and intelligent electricity networks and clean energy research and development. It also "places greater emphasis on energy efficiency". Peter Kent, the Canadian Minister of the Environment, urged the move Rio de Ahol Janeiro led the Canadian delegation to the Rio + 20 UN Sustainable Development Conference. "We hope that our transformation of our economies and our common work will identify clean energy solutions that will contribute to sustainable energy for everyone," he said. Tyler Hamilton, the Toronto Star, emphasizes the importance of boosting its clean energy investment in the Pro-Sustainability Stand of the Paris-based International Energy Agency. Managing Director of the IEA, Maria van der Hoeven, urges bold policies that radically transform the world's energy systems and say, "If significant political steps are taken, they will still be able to achieve the enormous potential of these technologies to reduce CO2 emissions and energy security "
It appears that the IEA states that the option is the option of" inserting into high carbon infrastructure ", Hamilton seems. "This is a lot worried, not just environmentalists," he writes. "They know that today's decisions will have a great impact on the quality of life of our children and their children." According to Hamilton, some Canadian ministers believe that this step is part of sustainability, but "The most widespread people call risk management".
Canada's political direction – if it is still pale green – is likely to have a big impact on the United States, especially in energy efficiency. In the colder Canada, enormous advances can be made to develop existing commercial and industrial buildings and to save energy.
The Council of the European Union on Energy Conservation has recently issued a report that reinforces the importance of improving the performance of buildings. The report, "Three decades and counting: a historical review and current assessment of electricity utilization activities in states," says that the conceptual concept of power utility utilities in the field of electricity savings was a major departure from past policies.
"Early roots in energy supply programs grew rapidly for electric consumers" compared to US $ 4.6 billion in total budgets in 2010, writes
ACEEE says new policies and programs Energy consumption has been reduced, environmental and economic benefits have been demonstrated and the "new era of energy efficiency … characterized by continuous expansion and innovation" has been demonstrated. This would be good for Canada, in particular in the light of the recent debates by Colombian Prime Minister Christy Clark, when three "liquefied natural gas" were redefined in the north As Green Energy. "This is in line with the overall natural gas strategy and is consistent with our efforts to use renewable energy," said Tamsyn Burgmann, according to the Canadian press. Gordon Hamilton from Vancouver Sun reports that Clark's view that "LNG gas-fired power plants or pipeline gas pipelines should be considered as green energy is a step that will allow the oil and gas industry to produce cheaply fired electricity , Without jeopardizing the requirements of the Clean Energy Act. "
It is still a reason to focus on energy efficiency while this problem works in itself. Perhaps renewable energies will receive more attention as well. In the meantime, Canadian businesses and local governments are likely to take over energy companies, initiate energy savings, and implement a number of energy-saving savings programs.
Say a guy in Whitehorse, Yukon Territories, adds a premium-efficient radiator, strengthens insulation, refreshes the canal and eliminates leakage in his store. Also installs other measures recommended by energy auditors. Your employees and clients feel the effects and say how great they are, especially when the thermometer falls under 40 or 50 below zero.
Changing attitudes and policies would do wonders to reduce huge heating bills, Northern latitude areas are facing each month. And lower operating costs can result in additional profits (or continuous existence) in difficult economic times.
Anecdotal landslides and landslides of the maple leaves will leak south and benefit from both regions.
Bob and Doug
So what? Because I got into the assignment, it had very little to do with anything more serious. Only Bob and Doug McKenzie were in my mind. I blame Canada's day. This came to the conclusion that Geddy Lee joined the two comedies on the Take Off song and in winter wearing woolies.
It's cold I know very well. I'm also proud of extreme heat treatment. And I'll tell you every day it's cold. Maybe not under 40. It just bites as you look at it.
Bob and Doug were news of SCTV's popularity. One of the scum was a beer hunter game. You've been drinking a lot. But at least a little.
Given that 200 years ago that between the states and the former British territories this little dispute, it may be that the next era will be prosperity and clean air. Sounds like a good reason to refresh a rucksack
