Argument: Geothermal energy can reduce dependencies on foreign oil
"A CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE FOR THE UNITED STATES: THE CASE OF GEOTHERMAL POWER". Testimony by the President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar Grimsson at a Senate Hearing Committee on Energy and Natural Resources". US Senate. 26 Sept. 2007 - As geothermal energy and hydroelectric power have been developed within Iceland’s borders, this means that we have become independent of fuel imports for electricity production. Thus we have less reason than many other nations to worry about fluctuating prices of oil except as they affect the transport sector and the fisheries fleet, and in these areas too, we are working on decreasing our dependence on oil.
