Denmark Generated Enough Wind Energy To Power All Its Electricity Needs On Wednesday | CleanTechnica
According to WindEurope, Denmark generated a total of 70 gigawatt-hours (GWh) from onshore wind and another 27 GWh from offshore wind — enough to power the equivalent of 10 million average EU households.
That's 2.9 and 1.1 gigawatts, with a sum of 4.0 GW.

Denmark's capacity is 3.8 GW onshore and 1.3 GW offshore, adding up to 5.1 GW.

Will Autocracies Fall As The Oil Age Ends? | CleanTechnica
The connection between reliance on a fossil fuel economy and corruption is well documented as the Resource Curse. Of all the petro-states, many have autocratic rule. Only Norway has consistently managed its oil wealth while remaining democratic.

Russia, the world’s largest oil producer, devolved from near democracy after the fall of the Soviet Union, into one of the world’s most corrupt kleptocracies under the 16-year rule of ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin.
So Saudi Arabia no longer has that honor? SA is a textbook example of the Resource Curse.

A Slow-Moving GOP Coup in the US Predated Trump

US Intelligence agencies concluded Putin used sophisticated troll armies to fool Americans into installing a US puppet president supportive of Putin’s kleptocratic regime.

But well before the shocking election results, the contrast in small “d” democracy between the red states and the blue states reflected the level of each state’s dependence on a fossil-fuel. If the US comprised different nations, like the EU, the difference in democratic voting laws between Oregon and Oklahoma would be as stark as the difference between democracy in Sweden and dictatorship in Hungary.
