Swedes Are Stupid

They actually believe global warming is real. And instead of just talking about reducing their addiction to oil, they're actually doing something about it. But they aren't having oil industry executives create their policy; they're using scientists. Doesn't make any sense.

Savages. I'm sure the terrorists will just hate them more for it. Sounds like marketing hype anyway. I mean I haven't seen any Saab or Volvo hybrids yet.

Off-topic: Swedish laws at work:

I can see why they want to get away from oil. Looks like they import a lot bigger percentage of their oil than we do.
Sweden Oil:
Production: 2,441 bbl/day (2003 est.)
Consumption: 346,100 bbl/day (2003 est.)

U.S. numbers
Production: 7.61 million bbl/day (2005 est.)
Consumption: 20.03 million bbl/day (2003 est.)

Now the interesting part:
Norway right next door to Sweden

Production: 3.22 million bbl/day (2005 est.)
Consumption: 257,200 bbl/day (2003 est.)
Exports: 3.466 million bbl/day (2001)
Imports: 88,870 bbl/day (2001)

GDP - per capita:
Sweden - $29,600 (2005 est.)
U.S. - $41,800 (2005 est.)
Norway - $42,400 (2005 est.) <- Rich S.O.B.'s
