Canucks get over 60% of our power from clean Hydro. Hydro doesn't 'use' water, it merely borrows it long enough to extract the kinetic energy from it while it seeks the lowest elevation it can get to.

Tim,

Thanks for the reminder. Of course, clean hydro is an important part of the mix. The Eastern US has benefited tremendously from hydro resources and projects.

Unfortunately, in places like the Southwestern US, dam projects have effectively enabled less than optimum use of resources and have encouraged environmentally unsustainable development and water-intensive crop investments.
