Sweden Targets 30% Reduction in Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 2020

Svenska Dagbladet. Sweden is targeting at least a 30% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020, beating the European Union goal of a 20% reduction, according to Environment Minister Andreas Carlgren.

Carlgren told the Svenska Dagbladet that since Sweden had pushed hard in the recent EU negotiations on the reduction target, that it would be unacceptable for the country to accept a lower goal.

Sweden so far has cut greenhouse gas emissions by about 7% from 1990 levels.



AFAIK Sweden is the only country that actually has a plan to get off oil before peak. One more round of prosperity coming up!


Er, Neil, as far as I know the Swedes live on the same planet as the rest of us.
