Can We Do This?

More Danes bike to work per capita than any other people in the world. Yes, in that cold climate.

And did you know that 80% of Denmark's energy used to be dependent on imported oil, but now Denmark is a net exporter of energy? They have the largest windmill company in the world, employing over 30,000 people.

The average Danish family consumes less than half the energy of the average American family.

And one more thing: if you think that must have hurt economic growth somehow... nope, sorry: Denmark's energy use has not grown at all in the last 20 years while it's economy has grown 78%-- during which it cut carbon emissions in half!
