  1. Bhutan. has to be ranked 1. 70% country is maintained as green. and most self reliable country. but most of the western world doesn't know where Bhutan is. hence, not in the list shown in video.

  2. Here in the U.S. we build nuclear waste facilities directly adjacent to rivers, dump coal ash in rivers as well as use it to create roads, dump waste from mining into streams, build substandard cross country oil pipes that continuously leak, and actively deny and cover up any negative effects of our action. Because money. Fml.

  3. Sorry guys, but you got that last one on Toyota wrong. Fuel cell cars (and the one on batteries like Tesla) still have big carbon footprint. Problem is that hydrogen is used not like energy source but energy storage. In order to cut carbon emissions we have to shut down coal plants and other electric plants that use fossil fuels. 
    PS Nuclear energy is, also, not completely carbon neutral because of the transport and refining of uranium ore heavily use fossil fuel. Documents you used for reference acknowledge that.
