Residents of the Danish island of Samso managed to completely eradicate its carbon footprint through the exclusive use of wind power. Every single person on the island owns a wind turbine, and the island generates enough electricity to sell power to the mainland. It’s the largest carbon-neutral settlement on the planet, and serves as an inspirational example of self-sufficiency for the rest of the world.
