The first organic nation


Bhutan plans to become the first country in the world to turn its agriculture completely organic, banning the sales of pesticides and herbicides. A paragon of sustainability, more than 95% of the population has clean water and electricity, 80% of the country is forested and, to the envy of many countries, it is carbon neutral and food secure. It would be great if Wales followed this lead.

That's great. I think they may also be the nation that has Gross Domestic Happiness as a measure of how well the country is doing.
