Sweden Plans To Become World's First Fossil Fuel-Free Nation

Finally a headline that we #LemonadeMakers can love – Sweden Plans To Become World’s First Fossil Fuel-Free Nation.  #Solar powers budget is increasing by 800%, so this seems to be the primary source they are leaning towards. They are also closing their nuclear power plants with no replacements planned. Already two-thirds of their electricity is from non fossil fuel sources.

For many years nations around the world have been slow to make changes in their energy uses, even though #climate_change is now an accepted fact by all of them.

Earlier this year, Costa Rica met the entirety of its national power demand using #renewable_energy for 75 days straight.

Denmark, one spectacularly windy day in July, generated 140% of the nation’s electricity demand through #wind_power alone, as reported by the Guardian. Remarkably, much of the excess was given to Germany, Norway and Sweden.
