Bjork Protests Geothermal Energy Company Sale In Iceland

Singer Bjork joined fellow Icelanders in protesting the sale of a geothermal energy company this week, according to a recent Reuters report. In what seems to be a disturbing act of “parliamentary oversight,” a deal was approved to sell Iceland’s HS Orka to Magma Energy Corp, a Canadian-based geothermal firm. Since the deal was made, the public has been fighting it, demanding a vote on the privatization of the country’s natural resources.

Geothermal energy is considered an intriguing sustainable resource, produced by drilling into the earth and extracting heat, which is then converted into usable energy.
