Sweden – the leader still leads

Yes, I love Sweden. I lived there and I am favouring the swedish education system and the general attitude towards each16339_1255062850600_1050447922_30823522_5311063_n other up there (despite it being a little cold) over Germany or even the States. But since the Socialdemocratic Kingdom of Sweden became right-wing, there was much reason to concern. They turned back the wheel of time towards free Capitalism and environmental bollocks. The Swedish Green Party was brave enough to hold a bit against this. Let’s hope they lead the system to change in next year elections.

Now, they introduced a climate-labeling of food-products. As 20 to 30% of all our Greenhouse-Gas emissions comes from what we eat, it makes sense to be transparent enough for people to chose. Eat Carrots instead of Tomatoes and if you cannot hold your unnatural instinct of eating live, eat chicken instead of cows! Now consumers can choose for themselfes and – even better – get informed for the first time what their food actually „costs nature“. You might could have checked it out in the internet, but now everybody has to read it. This is necessary education thise we – humans – a f***ing up the planet.

Sweden might have lost the lead in general politics, but when it comes to consumer-education and climate-protection, they are in the lead again. Bravo!image-29895-galleryV9-nrkl
