Oh, man. I can only imagine how hateful Danes would become of any newcomers from third-world countries if and when this balance is reached. I mean really, local people will be freezing their asses off saving on heat and TV, they will be "carefully assessing" every time they wash their sox...And then some immigrant comes to leech off their welfare. So I bet the money saved will be invested in the military. Good luck, Danes

Well you see, Denmark is quite a small country. They don't have the military power to bomb the hell out of somewhere in the Midle East to get oil, so they have to think of another way.

I agree. Denmark is only 16,639 square miles and it takes a country at least 94,058 square miles to attack Iraq -- you know, like the UK. Just kidding because Denmark was one of the leading countries to invade Iraq.

In 2003, the original 7 countries that invaded Iraq were: USA, UK, Australia, Poland, Spain, Italy, and Denmark. You know, the 7 countries that wanted the oil more than life itself. There was no other reason to go in other than to steal their oil, obviously.

Denmark didn't want the oil, they did it because they were told that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Denmark got enough oil in the North Sea

If you factor in the cost of climate change damage with the price of fossil fuels, all other energy forms become dirt cheap.

Humans are thriving. Populations are growing, life-expectancy is growing, child mortality is falling, hunger is diminishing, food production is more bountiful, prosperity is greater than at any time in history.

Put value on to those benefits, before attempting a balance-sheet of 'costs' for fossil fuels.

Then imagine yourself as one of the 1.3 billion people without access to electricity ; and repeat the question.

Well, its does not seem that is an issue for the Danes that they pay the higest prices for electricity. But what matters is if they are using fossil fuel on a long term, big parts of Denmark will be under water. Everyting comes with a price tag.

" But what matters is if they are using fossil fuel on a long term, big parts of Denmark will be under water. "

Why do you do exaggerate?

Simply consult the NOAA site under Mean Sea Level Trends for Northeast Atlantic Ocean & Seas Stations / North Sea Region / and you find 3x entries for Denmark.

Esbjerg, Denmark 1.227mm/yr trend rise
Hirtshals, Denmark -0.172mm/yr trend fall
Frederikshavn, Denmark 0.140mm/yr trend rise

Guestiferous - you mean that the Danes pay more for electricity just now because they have designed an integrated energy system for 2050? If anything I'd have argued the other way round. With electricity costing so much today, I'd be looking at alternatives for tomorrow too.
