Finland could soon make history if things pan out the way they're supposed to. According to the Huffington Post, the country could soon become the first European nation to stop using coal - with a goal to phase out the energy source entirely by 2025.

This was good to read;I never realized Finland was so coal dependent.

Allan, in Finland only about 10% of energy is produced with coal, and there are altogether 13 coal power plants - not exactly what I'd call "coal dependent". In the original source, however, minister Häkämies (Economy Minister) used conditional - "we COULD set a target for Finland to phase out coal power, FOR INSTANCE by 2025". His plan hasn't even been brought to Parliament yet, though the positive comments from both the government and representatives of industry are promising... large part of coal power, would be replaced, of course, by nuclear power (the fifth nuclear plant in Olkiluoto should be ready in 2014).

Interesting that 2025 is also the year that the UN and their Masters have indicated as being the closing date for the reduction of all global population to no more than 1.5 million people. Of course the elites would be very pleased if it were 500 million as that number is very controllable. Will fossil fuels finally be obsolete by then too? Tesla had the answer back in 1935, The PTBs gained control of all his schemata; inventions on scalar wave during the fire. Tesla's discoveries are still valid today and still work. Were they employed we wouldn't have a need for fossil fuels or nuclear fuel but because there is no maximum short term profit to be made the PTBs won't release this. 2025 could be the year that they do. I will be long gone but I will still be around from time to time and will pop in for a visit. LOL
