Iceland Uses Least Amount of Fossil Fuels

Iceland uses the least fossil fuels per capita of the roughly 20 countries participating in the Kyoto Protocol, according to a new report from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Fossil fuels are only 27.5 percent of the nation’s total energy usage. Ireland uses the greatest amount of fossil fuels, roughly 98 percent of the nation’s total energy usage. The average usage of fossil fuels within the EU is about 80 percent, Fréttabladid reports.

The aim of the UNFCCC report is to determine how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions among the Kyoto Protocol countries.
