Denmark is far ahead of the United States in moving to a clean economy. Sam Eaton reported today on the sacrifice the Danes are making to build a low-carbon future. One couple he featured, Kaspar Olesen and Susanne Nielsen (above), showed him their home’s 1949 vintage oil furnace, which the government helped them replace. See Sam’s slideshow too.
