Costa Rica is moving toward carbon neutrality

This small nation in Central America is already one of the greenest countries on Earth. Now, Costa Rica has a new goal for itself: achieving zero emissions. 🌱

    Water purification process in water underwater creating clarity enough to see the bottom, solar panels rooftops, windows and roads commercial and residential, electric vehicles everywhere just to name a few that’s when life matters!

    This is great but let’s be honest about something. First and foremost is the climate. To do this in Canada where temps (like we had all February) are -20 to -40 renewables don’t cut it. When you need heat it must be on demand and not on some pre planned schedule. Of course we seek and embrace new technologies and ideas but they must be both adequate and affordable. One more thing. Canada is also Carbon neutral. Research a non partisan calculation of all emissions against the ability of our forests, wetlands and crops to absorb it and you will see we’re actually ahead of the game. So once again, let’s do our part for the planet but also let’s stop the rhetoric and work with real objectives and measurable outcomes!

    It is a beautiful country that takes care of it's wild animals, insects, and natural spaces. They have various wild life areas and nature is a valued part of their economy and heritage. If they can do it we should all be doing it.❤️❤️❤️

    Costa Rica has planted zero trees. There is no money even to keep the roads in a decent condition. The politicians siphon off the tax money for their personal benefit. I used to live in San Rafael de Heredia. Every day I saw trucks loaded with trees cut from the supposedly protected forests on their way to the saw mills. If you believe what the Costa Rican government says you may also believe in Santa Claus.
