Copenhagen: Taking the risk to define a zero carbon, clean energy future

Copenhagen, host of the UN Climate Change Conference, claims to be one of the world's greenest cities. It has extensive public transportation, a strong bicycle culture and plans to be carbon neutral by 2025 with progressive blueprints to reduce carbon emissions 20 percent by 2015 compared to 2005. Klaus Bondam, mayor of technology and sustainability for the city of Copenhagen, explains the city's ethos, commitment to sustainability and its rapid plans to move from coal to wind energy.
