The World's on Fire. Can Geothermal Energy Help?

Sarah McLachlan thinks so. Sarah is a Canadian singer/songwriter, possibly most familiar in the popular imagination as the singer of the Oscar nominated Randy Newman song "When She Loved Me" from the soundtrack to the movie "Toy Story 2". Slightly less well known is Sarah's support for a variety of causes, one of which is geothermal energy. Here's a "music video" of her song "World on Fire" from the 2003 album "Afterglow" :

Quoting from Sarah's lyrics:

The world's on fire
It's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water
And try to bring my share

The more we take
The less we become
The fortune of one man
Means less for some

Quoting from the words of the Canadian Geothermal Energy Association in the video:

The Earth is my home
Will I make it better?

This is where I live
This is my home

It is in my power
To make it better

It is my responsibility
To take care of it

I can make a difference

Become a voice
A voice for change
