What is the National Bird of Sweden?

10,000 Birds

The national bird of Sweden is the Blackbird Turdus merula , otherwise known as the Common Blackbird or Eurasian Blackbird , though, of course, in Sweden it is not known by any of those names but as Koltrast.* It is common in Sweden but so are many other species. Despite my inability to figure out why, exactly, Sweden chose the Blackbird it seems like an excellent choice, especially if one likes The Beatles. Birds blackbirds national bird sweden thrushes

Sweden has run out of rubbish

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Due to Sweden’s innovative waste-to-energy program and highly efficient recycling habits, this Scandinavian nation faces an interesting dilemma. Because Sweden manages waste so effectively and then use what remains to partly power their country, they are now living an environmentalist’s dream; a shortage of garbage. Incineration must not be done, they say, and that despite the fact that Sweden shows the way how to do it.

Failure: Sweden will reach EU’s climate targets 195 years too late

Green Blog

The Swedish Green Party has released a report which shows that Sweden will reach the EU’s climate targets in 2205 instead of 2050 – 195 years too late. During the last four years with a right-wing Government in Sweden the pace of emissions reductions decreased from 1.5% In other words this means that Sweden will miss the EU climate targets by a long shot.

Sweden Is Now Recycling 99 Percent Of Its Trash. Here’s How They Do It

The Green Changemakers

Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries.

According to the report, the security problems at the aging nuclear reactors in Sweden are so urgent that they should be shut down immediately to avoid any severe accidents. Today there are currently three active nuclear power plants in Sweden. In doing so the parliament voted against a referendum from 1980 where Sweden said no to new nuclear energy. A 2006 report done by Vattenfall , one of the nuclear energy companies in Sweden, reinforces this claim by Greenpeace.
