Green Nations

The quest for renewable energy is becoming a global phenomenon. Sixty-six countries have set targets to increase investment in renewable energy. And America is getting serious about it, too.

Overseas, Norway, Sweden and Iceland rank high thanks to investment in renewable energy, low population density, and successful management of environmental issues. In fact, nearly all Iceland's electricity and heating comes from hydroelectric power and geothermal springs - renewable energy that's clean and cheap.

Here at home, twenty-eight states have set goals or deadlines for utilities to obtain electricity from clean, renewable sources instead of fossil fuel-burning plants.

Expanding wind, solar and geothermal resources will help create jobs and reduce our dependence on fossil-fuels that release greenhouse gasses like carbon dioxide.
