On the heels of the Paris Climate Change Conference when all the countries of the world are focused on reducing their carbon footprints, the Caribbean island of Nevis is actually taking steps to do just that. This is the key message that the Honorable Mark Brantley, Deputy Premier and Minister of Tourism for Nevis conveyed to Americans as he appeared on major US print and broadcast media during his recent visit to New York.

Nevis is poised to be "the greenest place on Earth" when its geothermal program comes online in 2017. The island is blessed with a vast resource of geothermal energy, enough that it can be 100% off fossil fuels and has energy left over to share with neighboring Caribbean islands. No other country can currently make this claim.
