Twitter moments recently had a moment about Bhutan being the only carbon neutral country in the world: Why Bhutan Is All Alone in the Carbon-Neutral Nation Club and one tweet in the Twitter moments said
Here's why Bhutan is the only carbon-neutral country in the world.
The claim is also repeated elsewhere. For example, Australia’s climate council claimed in 2017 that Bhutan is the only country that’s carbon negative, and mentions the country’s focus on gross national happiness as a reason for that.
The original article (plus the climate council one) doesn’t list which countries are closest to meeting carbon neutrality but haven’t met it.
By contrast, Wikipedia lists another country as carbon neutral: Suriname.
Is Bhutan carbon neutral, and is it the only country to be carbon neutral?
