If you hire and train me to fly battle helicopters over Bhutan I’ll conserve and protect the wilderness for you, and you can have all my money as long as I can live in one of those cool mountain houses and the people share their food with me.

Why not existing 72% forest cover to be undistributed. If you try to compromise by an inch ,you lose by a mile. No compromise could be the best rule , INSTEAD compromise and get ruined. I am not bothered about today but very much worried about ABOUT THE TOMORROW. I LIVED MY LIFE, BUT I WANT COMING GENERATION HAVE A BETTER LIFE . WITH INCREASING POPULATION THINGS MAY GO FROM BAD TO WORST. AND THAT'S MY CONCERN. THOUGH I AM NOTA BHUTANESE, STIL I LOVE BHUTAN , I TOOK A DRIVE FROM GANGTOK TO THIMPU IN 2000. WHAT A MEMORABLE TRIP IT WAS REALLY WONDERFUL. WE EVEN DRIVE THROUGH THE SWISS ALPS IN 2003, BUT NOTHING LIKE MIGHTY HIMALAYAS, SPECIALLY THE SIKKIM , GANGTOK TO THIMPU BHUTAN. Coming to global warming , it is due overpopulation, over activity RATHER hyperactivity of AKWARD human beings. BHUTAN can gererate money by tourism..... hydro-electric power, solar & as wel as wind energy. But not increase population beyond 1 million. (My theroritical or imaginary views to exahange corbon dioxide to oxygen through pipelines from the nearest indian cities -( Assam, west bengal .) CO2 for the growth of the forest, 02 for better breathing.) For PROPER growth 72% forest cover - water, sunlight & CO2 is a must ...,...let the scientific community think about it .

I appreciate Bhutan's efforts. Proud too of being its neighbour. Located in the East of India which is very rich in its natural resources, I once felt very fortunate but not now. The Cement Factories have ruined our beautiful nature esp in the dense forest of East Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya, which support many endemic species. I plea to UN Forest Conservation to do something before its too late(please). Our Govt is closing it's eyes.

The Chinese are not helping. Instead they are taking all the land they can grab in Africa and it seems that it is they who are wanting to take the land of the South African farmers to extract the minerals and to plant GMO crops! I send my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Bhutan. God help us all.

Bhutan try to show of to be a friendly country. But they don't tell how they have persecuted and expelled more then 100000 people from its minority groupe Lhotsompas. Bhutan is an introvert paranoid dictatoreship that say they are a little nice kingdom.

Carbon is completely irrelevant. If there is a lot the plants lap it up, if there is not enough the plants die. The earth is completely self regulating. CO2 levels have been three times higher than now in the past and have also been lower in the past. The main driver is average temperature of the oceans. All the sheep think it’s great when a coal power station is turned off and don’t even release the act of fracking is equivalent to a dozen power stations what a joke is all this fake science spewing these days.

Lol I am sure those hundreds of thousands of people that were tortured, raped and eventually evicted simply for demanding more representation in the government and free movement within the country would feel quite differently about Bhutan. There is a dark underbelly to this so-called shangri-la that very few are aware of. Bhutan, being so isolated and irrelevant as it is in the international stage has been quite successful in hiding its dark past and putting a facade of a beautiful, happy, tolerant nation for the world. Yes, it's a gorgeous country, yes, the people are awesome, yes, there have been some changes since the 90s, and yes, with little to no urbanization, the country has fabulous untouched nature, however, it is dangerous to ignore the plight of so many people caused directly by the Bhutanese government and declare it a great, happy place. I recommend "Killing Time", a movie on Bhutanese refugees living in exile by Annika Gustafson. Watch it, do some research on the story, and then make up your mind about Bhutan. My comment is not intended to vilify the Bhutanese people or reduce the conservation efforts of Bhutan. I like the country and would love to visit it and spend time with the locals. I simply wanted to shed some light and present a broader, bigger picture of what the country is or has been. As an American, i look at my country with the same lens- it's tumultuous, dark past, and the great many positive changes it achieved over time, it's dark facets of modern time (trump, racism, unnecessary wars in so many countries invading and looting their landscape and resources), and the great many freedoms we enjoy daily, the inventions we gave the world and continue to give today etc. It's important to look at history and be objective in reasoning, hence the comment.

Well said, Democracy is nothing more than a mockery of so called human rights and freedom, Democracy had justified slavery and genocide for more than 2000 years. Democracy is nothing more than bullshit it's nothing more than glorification of the western culture to the world to impose a political ideology not everyone wants

It's easy to be carbon-neutral or carbon-negative when your country doesn't need to mine for the minerals necessary for creating the technologies needed for renewable energy and the electronics that drive the modern world; when you don't need to produce any of the appliances and communications equipment that brings the world together; when you don't need heavy industries to produce the buses, trains and planes needed by the lower-"GNH" countries that require large-scale mobility for a productive populace. As much as I respect Bhutan for trying to be as medieval as they can in terms of energy & goods production and energy consumption, I'm sure the scientists, engineers and non-hippies among us quickly realize that only Bhutan can be Bhutan. The rest of the developed & developing world, especially industrialized mega-manufacturers like China, India, Mexico, and others, have to suffer the ills that come with producing what the modern world needs and live with a lower GNH so that small and easily-managed under-developed countries like Bhutan can remain relatively clean and unpolluted, and have their high-GNH and negative carbon output.

While I see what they have done for their country, and find it amazing, what if humanity is not to blame for global warming? What if the truth is, the earth naturally has heating and cooling cycles? What if these changes are merely a bit like breathing? What if, as inconvenient as it may seem, these cycles are merely the Earth mirroring the expansion and contraction of the universe? What if, for the health of our planet, they must continue unimpeded? As above, so below. What if we were lied to about all of it?

"We generate our electricity through our fast flowing rivers, to become carbon negative" "Because of the world's carbon emissions, our glaciers are disappearing!" Where do you think at that free energy from fast flowing rivers is coming from and how long will it be flowing fast? Would Bhutan be carbon neutral if the induced run off from global warming never occurred? Nothing in this world's for free! We don't all have the highest mountains in the world to be fully sustainable on hydroelectricity.

"climate change" is a pseudoscience. Dig deep into both parts of the narrative and DO YOU HOMEWORK about what people were saying about how our climate would be today as they said 15 years ago. I am not saying what this guy is speaking about it bad...its really good what this country is doing for its people. However... it is a false positive in regards to climate change.

A backwards country with nationalized health care that benefits from the medical discoveries of more capitalistic ones, and he complains about a problem, climate change, whose ramifications weren't known until recently.
A'zhadial (6 дней назад)
"nationalized healthcare" is not a bad thing. That's what every freaking country in the world has except the USA. Climate change is a fact, you cannot doubt it, it is observed (Glaciers melt in the antarctic and in the arctic). But you have a point when you say that Bhutan can be what it is because it benefited from the scientific discoveries of other nations and that it is dependent on many things of other nations. Bhutan needs other nations for its medicine and creating those drugs pollute.
