Why is it so important for Sweden to become the first country make the switch to all renewable resources? It’s important for Sweden to be the first country to go fuel free, so they can show other nations such as Britain, and the US how easy it is to go fuel free, In the the article Sweden Phases out fossil fuels in an attempt to run completely off of renewable energy, Samuel Osborne states that “The UK had the fourth lowest RES at 5.7 per cent, followed by Ireland with 8.2 per cent.” This is important for the Third world country of Sweden to show how easy it is to go duel free, and encourage other nations to do so. It’s very important for other countries to realize that it is easy to make the switch to all renewable resources, making the environment cleaner, and healthier for not only people, but for nature as well. One of Sweden’s prime minister's advisors states that “2015 is our opportunity, a chance to, in dialogue with all the countries of the world, change course towards a new development path where we can succeed in generating welfare for all, not at the planet’s cost but in cooperation with it.” This shows how the peoples of Sweden are willing to work with each and every country in the world to help stabilize our ecosystem, and for other countries economies as well. This is why it is important for Sweden to make the switch to all renewable resources.
