100% of Norway’s cars will be green by 2025
Err, sort of. They'll still be able to buy red cars and blue cars and black cars and silver cars - they'll just be powered by 'green' energy.
Green energy in this instance means saying goodbye to unrenewable fuels like petrol and diesel, and instead using electricity, which is considered a clean energy.
I say it's 'considered' green because most electricity is generated from fossil fuels, but Norway actually gets nearly all its power from hydroelectricity, which is green in the extreme.
Norway are basically winning
The news comes VERY soon after the country announced it was pledging to end deforestation completely. 24% of Norway's cars already run on electricity and they're now aiming for the full 100%. By contrast, electric cars represent only around 2% of the new car market in the UK.
Elon Musk, genius founder of Tesla, took to Twitter to applaud the entire country of Norway, saying "You guys rock!!"
We should be like Norway. They're not only one of the happiest, safest and fairest countries in the world; they're winning at caring for our planet. They really do rock.
