BBC News: Sweden Aims for Oil Free Economy
The country aims to replace all fossil fuels with renewables before climate change damages economies and growing oil scarcity leads to price rises.
According to the Guardian newspaper, a Swedish minister said oil dependency could be broken by 2020.
Damn. this is just freaking awesome. Sweden is recognizing the importance of getting off oil, and setting an ambitious deadline to quit. I’ve heard that for some people, the best way to quit an addiction, like smoking or oil, is cold turkey. It’s rough, but once it’s over, you’re so much better off. Props to Sweden.
