The Energy Council maintains a strong interest in environmental issues. Currently, there is a particular focus on international aspects, and how they may affect Canadian energy stakeholders. The emphasis is on greenhouse gas emissions, and on moves towards carbon dioxide (CO2) stabilization.
In 1992, the Framework Convention on Climate Change was signed by over 150 countries (including Canada) at the United Nations Conference for Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a first step toward a broad objective of stabilizing harmful "greenhouse gases", particularly CO , the Rio treaty called on industrialized countries to cap emissions at 1990 levels by the year 2000. In December 1997, five years after Rio, the Kyoto Conference of Parties (COP-3) established a new set of greenhouse gas targets for industrialized countries. In particular, for Canada it specified a 6% reduction below 1990 levels, to be achieved by the period 2008-2012. This compares with a 7% reduction target for the US, and an 8% reduction for the European Union countries. A succinct summary of the decisions at Kyoto, as prepared by the Deputy Secretary General of WEC, will be found at the Kyoto 1997 site.

Wind Energy
Environmental Issues
ind power plants offer several important environmental advantages over conventional power plants running on coal, oil, or natural gas; namely, they use no fuel, emit no air pollutants, greenhouse gases, or toxic wastes, and consume no water or other scarce resources. Nevertheless, wind plants can raise environmental and community concerns. For example, they generate noise and can be visually intrusive for residents living near them. They also can disturb wildlife habitats and cause injury or death to birds. Fortunately, despite past mistakes, these and other potential problems need not pose a serious obstacle to wind development in most cases. Through conscientious planning research, and early and frequent consultations with affected communities, wind plant developers can identify and address the most serious issues before substantial investments are made in new wind projects. Utilities, government agencies, environmental organizations, and others need to work with developers to ensure that such effective strategies are implemented.
Issues concerning local communities
Building and operating a wind plant involves many of the same activities as building and operating a conventional power plant, including road construction, land clearing, truck traffic, and the construction of transmission lines. Not surprisingly, activities such as these sometimes arouse significant community concerns. In addition, wind projects raise unique community issues, mostly concerning their visual impacts and noise.

Iran: Environmental Issues
Iran is faced with a litany of environmental problems, many of which the country is only beginning to tackle as the problems reach a crisis point. Although Iran established a Department of Environment in 1971, long-term environmental concerns often have been subjugated to shorter-term industrial production and political goals. Iranian environmental protection efforts in the 1970s focused on conservation, with the establishment of a number of national parks, national monuments, and wildlife refuges throughout the country.
Iran maintained this focus after the Islamic Revolution, enshrining environmental protection in the Constitution. Article 50 of the Constitution reads: "In the Islamic Republic of Iran protection of the environment, in which present and future generations should enjoy a transcendent social life, is regarded as a public duty. Therefore, economic and any other activity, which results in pollution or irremediable destruction of the environment is prohibited." However, 8 years of war with Iraq, international political isolation, and economic sanctions kept environmental goals on the back-burner in Iran, and conservation measures predominated in Iran's environmental policies.
Iran's failure to move beyond conservation policies towards a more sustainable development has manifested itself in a range of problems today. In addition to deforestation and desertification issues across much of Iran's arid territory, overfishing in lakes and rivers has caused a drop in fishing levels; industrial and urban waste water runoff has contaminated a number of rivers and coastal waters and threatened drinking water supplies; wetlands and reservoirs are increasingly being destroyed under the pretext of creating industrial and agricultural lands; and oil and chemical spills in the Persian Gulf and

Environmental Issues and Mitigation
Current hydropower technology, while essentially emission-free, can have undesirable environmental effects , such as fish injury and mortality from passage through turbines, as well as detrimental effects on the quality of downstream water. A variety of mitigation techniques are now being used to address these environmental issues, and environmentally friendly turbines are under development. Fish Passage
Fish populations can be impacted if fish cannot migrate upstream past impoundment dams to spawning grounds or if they cannot migrate downstream to the ocean. Upstream fish passage can be aided using fish ladders or elevators , or by trapping and hauling the fish upstream by truck. Downstream fish passage is aided by diverting fish from turbine intakes using screens or racks or even underwater lights and sounds , and by maintaining a minimum spill flow past the turbine. Water Quality and Flow
Hydropower plants can cause low dissolved oxygen levels in the water, a problem that is harmful to riparian habitats and is addressed using various aeration techniques. Maintaining

In many ways, America's environment has improved dramatically since the first Earth Day in 1970. The quality of the nation's air has improved substantially with respect to many pollutants, particularly lead after it was phased out as a gasoline additive several years ago. Water pollution from "point sources" like industrial facilities and wastewater treatment plants has seen similar improvement, though pollution from "nonpoint" sources principally urban, suburban and agriculture runoff has proved an intractable problem of ongoing concern. While these and other domestic environmental issues draw continued attention, however, many environmentalists are now placing international issues at the top of their list of priorities. Issues like global warming, population growth, deforestation, and the continued loss of many species of plants and animals have reached increasing prominence on the environmental agenda. These issues are not without controversy. While few people consider themselves anti-environment, many environmental policies draw considerable opposition from those who are adversely affected economically. Domestically, industries complain of a heavy regulatory burden and question the benefits of new environmental proposals. Property owners complain that their rights are being infringed. There is also significant conflict in the international arena, where poor, developing nations argue that they can not afford new environmental restrictions and that rich, industrialized nations, who have until recently been the world's primary polluters, should shoulder most of the burden.

Environmental and Social Issues
There are a number of social and environmental issues that have, in the past, been a problem for turbine owners. However, better wind turbine designs and siting plans have succeeded in minimizing the impact of wind projects. Turbines are now much quieter, and they don't interfere with television reception. In addition, careful siting can decrease interference with birds and other wildlife. And wind turbines have always been a source of pollution-free electricity that doesn't contribute to global warming. The links below provide more information on some of these social and environmental issues to help you determine if a wind turbine is right for you, and to help you answer any questions you might get regarding these issues:

Solar energy technologies, paired with energy conservation, have the potential to meet a large portion of future US energy needs
The United States faces serious energy shortages in the near future. High energy consumption and the ever-increasing US population will force residents to confront the critical problem of dwindling domestic fossil energy supplies. With only 4.7% of the world's population, the United States consumes approximately 25% of the total fossil fuel used each year throughout the world. The United States now imports about one half of its oil (25% of total fossil fuel) at an annual cost of approximately $65 billion (USBC 1992a). Current US dependence on foreign oil has important economic costs (Gibbons and Blair 1991) and portends future negative effects on national security and the economy. Domestic fossil fuel reserves are being rapidly depleted, and it would be a major drain on the economy to import 100% of US oil. Within a decade or two US residents will be forced to turn to renewable energy for some of their energy needs. Proven US oil reserves are projected to be exhausted in 10 to 15 years depending on consumption patterns (DOE 1991a, Matare 1989, Pimentel et al. 1994, Worldwatch Institute 1992), and natural gas reserves are expected to last slightly longer. In contrast, coal reserves have been projected to last approximately 100 years, based on current use and available extraction processes (Matare 1989).
