Making Sweden an Oil-Free Society by the Swedish Commission on Oil Independence [2006 June 21]
"In December 2005, the Government appointed a commission to draw up a comprehensive programme to reduce Sweden’s dependence on oil. There were several reasons for this. The price of oil affects Sweden’s growth and employment. Oil still plays a major role for peace and security throughout the world. There is a great potential for Swedish raw materials as alternatives to oil. But, above all, the extensive burning of fossil fuels threatens the living conditions of future generations. Climate change is a fact which we politicians must face. Broad and long-term political efforts are needed."
