The worlds first oil-free economy

On the Guardian there is an article about how Sweden plans to be the world's first oil-free economy.

It's interesting to read that people from all parts of the society want to cure Sweden from its oil-dependency by around 2020. This really means that everything which today needs oil for generating its energy, be it heating or electricity, should be turned around to use renewable energy sources.

This change has to happen mentally and technically and if Sweden succeeds with that it'll be the worlds leading country which has an economy totally independend of oil price changes.

As much as I wish that my country would participate more in that direction I doubt that politicans will change their thoughts anywhere in the near future. Nevertheless I think that this will be a wakeup call for some people and countries which can't be bad for anyone of us.
