The Greenest Country on Earth

Check this video from CNN’s EcoSolutions. It describes Bhutan’s new energy solution.

The kingdom of Bhutan

Bhutan is the last of the Himalayan kingdoms. The small country is situated in the nooks and crannies of the highest mountain range on earth. It’s a special place that didn’t have paved roads until the 1960s, was off-limits to foreign tourists until the 1970’s, and didn’t have television until 1999, the last country in the world to get service. How this small kingdom prepares for future energy alternative, now?

Bhutan is tapping into that clean energy on a massive scale. Hydropower is the sole source of electricity in the country and experts say the country is only using about 5 percent of its potential right now.
