Sweden's Quest to be the First Oil-free Nation BY 2020

Sweden's Quest to be the First Oil-free Nation BY 2020 | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

| April 13, 2013 The Energy Collective

Famous for Volvo, Ikea and Absolut Vodka, Sweden is now on a new pursuit to become the first completely oil-free economy in the world by 2020.

The oil crisis in the early 1970s forced Sweden to embark on a quest for alternative energy sources. Its phasing out of oil has proceeded smoothly; in 1970, oil accounted for 77% of Sweden’s energy, but by 2003 that figure fell to 32%.... http://theenergycollective.com/znesheiwat/208421/swedens-quest-be-first-oil-free-nation

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, April 11, 2013 6:28 PM

“Our dependency on oil should be broken by 2020,” said Mona Sahlin, minister of Sustainable Development, in an interview with The Guardian newspaper. “There shall always be better alternatives to oil, which means no house should need oil for heating, and no driver should need to turn solely to gasoline.”

rajendrashende's curator insight, April 21, 2013 4:52 AM

Whether Sweeden will achive their objective can be debated , but their resolve is backed by robust strategy and plan. And they are on path, even for the transport sector . FFV (Flexi-Fuel-Vehicle) is somethig that can inspire Public Private Partnerships even in the developinf countries  

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, May 27, 2013 2:55 PM

Eliminating the burning of all fossil fuels for economic reasons is perfectly reasonable, especially if the full and true costs of the fossil fuel industry are factored in.

U.S. states, #Rockefellers clash with U.S. House panel on #Exxon #climate probes | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
With a number of U.S. states proceeding with investigations of Exxon Mobil Corp's (XOM.N) record on climate change, the attorney general of Massachusetts and investment funds of the Rockefeller family on Friday told a Congressional committee it lacked powers to oversee those probes.

The pushback is the latest chapter in a high-stakes fight between the world's largest publicly traded oil company and a coalition of state attorneys general who have said they would go after Exxon to try and force action to tackle climate change.

The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology last week reiterated demands that state attorneys general hand over any records of consultations the prosecutors had with outside environmental groups before their probes were opened.

Disturbing Aerials Reveal #Canada’s Vast Tar Sand Mines #pollution by the #fossil fuel industry | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
PULLING OIL FROM the tar sands of Canada is an ugly business. It scars the land with deep gashes, barren pits, and murky tailing ponds. It can be hard to grasp the scale of it from the ground, so photographer Stuart Hall rented a plane. What he saw stunned him. “There’s a lot of beauty in that place, but also a lot of destruction,” he says. “It’s like a bad marriage.”
