the Government has now decided to grant permission for mining of Nussir field in Kvalsund in Finnmark - with disposal in Repparfjorden. It was expected, but it's still a scandal - a total neglect of the environment.
the Government has actually said yes to a lost cause. Norway is only one of the five countries in the world that still tilltater sjødeponier, and it goes in the direction of prohibition here at home also. Through the last two regjeringsutvidelsene has the political platform stated that the government shall examine the consequences of a ban.

Miljøargumentene banging thus against each other, and then apply it to follow with in the hour. We can not accept the poisoning of a fjord and the destruction of spawning grounds as a reasonable price to pay in klimaets name. As little as we can allow to aerator up the seabed in search of metals and minerals, if the research should show that there is a danger of the harmful influence . New resources in the name neutralizes not already established environmental concerns.
In our time, where the need for green adaptation is becoming increasingly stronger, we must learn to identify those who sail under the green flags of convenience.
