The Danish are taking a massive step forward to offset their contribution to climate change — they plan on making Copenhagen, the capital city, a net zero contributor of atmospheric carbon by 2025. If successful, Copenhagen will be the world's first carbon-neutral capital.
Newsweek reports that Copenhagen recently completed three electricity-generating windmills and hopes to construct an additional 97 to raise the country's share of renewable wind power from 33% to 50% by 2020. Mayor Frank Jensen says "it's a must" for the city go entirely carbon-neutral. Eighty-nine percent of the city's citizens support the plan.
