Finland has declared that it will be net zero by 2035. That's the whole country.
That means zero emissions, or enough carbon capture/sequestration from forests etc to deal with what few emissions do go up.
That's pretty incredible.
They've also declared that by 2040 they'll be net-negative... that means the trees themselves will likely release more carbon into the air than they have to capture (trees naturally release carbon as a function of their lifecycle).
So why is this close to a perfect example, but still not actually perfect?
Finland still exports around $4billion of refined oil.
I haven't found anything to say what will happen with that as part of their 2035/2040 goals.
The reason I've shared this is to highlight again just how hard perfect is. It's not worth delaying climate action in any form. Finland started years ago and are now at the pointy end of their journey.
The most perfect thing you can do right now is start.
