As teefed from the wonderful UncleRoy, I have even more reason to move to Sweden. As if I didn’t love it enough already!

In October 2005 the Swedish Minister for Sustainable Development, Ms Mona Sahlin, announced that Sweden aims to become the world%u2019s first oil-free country by 2020.

The Swedish government wants to cut-off completely the nation’s dependency on fossil energy and switch to clean, renewable energy. That means that Sweden will become the first country in the world to stop using oil. Cars in Sweden will be environmentally friendly and homes will be heated by renewable energies such as biomass or geothermal sources.
