Denmark vs. Finland

Here's an interesting comparison.

Denmark and Finland have nearly identical populations (in number, that is) -- 5.4 million in Denmark and 5.3 million in Finland. Finland uses about 50% more total energy than Denmark and generates twice as much and uses 2.5 times more electricity.

Denmark generates 20% of their electricity from wind, and Finland generates almost none from wind.

Yet, according to the IAEA, their CO2 emissions from energy are virtually the same.
