For sure, Costa Rica is going to be a country with zero emissions of industrial carbon dioxide by 2021. To attain this goal, the Government encourages the development of new types of alternative energy sources and at the same time implementing already existing energy sources in the industry. Since it’s a warm country it does not have to heat the house which almost reduces one-third of energy consumption.
Last century, Costa Rica, which had abandon forest resources, cut down trees for export to foreign countries. The country is now trying to plant new trees to replace the cut downed. In 2008, despite the recession 5 million new trees were planted and this has given new hope for the restoration of trees destroyed earlier.
