US-Canada can and will extract critical minerals sustainably, says top US diplomat
Ever heard of critical minerals? Well, there's a reason they are called that way — and it has a lot to do with clean energy.
At the US-Canada summit in Toronto, GZERO's Tony Maciulis asks Jose Fernandez, US Undersecretary of State for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment, about why these minerals are such a big deal and what the US and Canada are doing to secure supply.
Fernandez also shares his views on how critical minerals can be mined sustainably, and more broadly on how the two countries can work together to tackle this and other issues relevant to the fight against climate change.
