Denmark’s newest effort to gradual local weather change isn’t as dramatic a sacrifice as it could be for different nations. It’s a comparatively rich nation, and produces ‘simply’ 100,000 barrels of crude oil and equivalents per day versus roughly 1,000,000 within the UK and 19 million within the US. The nation can afford to drop oil and fuel the place an analogous choice would possibly hobble others, particularly because it transitions towards a digital economic system. Microsoft simply announced plans to construct a datacenter area in Denmark — efforts like these may choose up a number of the slack.
It’s nonetheless a major gesture, although. Denmark is a serious EU oil producer, and it’s nonetheless uncommon to see nations purposefully abandon oil and fuel manufacturing even when they’re committed to renewable energy. This might improve stress on different nations to ditch fossil gasoline manufacturing, at the very least people who make the leap with out jeopardizing their economies.
