Denmark's 100% renewable energy push

The New York Times, in its series on solutions to climate change, reports on the policy of Denmark to "to end the burning of fossil fuels in any form by 2050 — not just in electricity production, as some other countries hope to do, but in transportation as well."

they keys to success: 

  • plenty of wind power,
  • good electricity connections to Sweden's nuclear power, and Norway's hydroelectric plants (without competition from neighbouring countries),
  • hopefully new technology that can bring a transformation in the transport sector. 35 years to go, why not?
