A Norwegian court invalidates production licenses for three oil fields

Yesterday on January 18, the Oslo District Court ruled in favor of Natur og Ungdom and Greenpeace and invalidated production permits for 3 oil fields, including one already in operation.
These 2 environmental organizations had taken the Norwegian government to court last June, arguing that its green light to develop the Tyrving, Breidablikk and Yggdrasil oil fields had not been preceded by a prior study of the climate impact of such projects.
This is a big victory for the planet! 🌍 And I hope that more decisions like this one will come to force governments to stop expanding fossil fuel production!

        Finally some sanity! The oil industry needs to answer to future generations.

          Two slightly similar cases are ongoing in the UK. they are both about GHG from the use of the fossil fuel extracted, but relate to planning consents, not the licenses. UK Supreme Court is considering its judgement on the Horse Hill oil well, and once that ruling is out, the High Court Hearing for the Cumbria coal mine will be arranged. The UK govt is trying very hard to defend it's decisions to focus only on operational emissions at oil, gas or coal extraction developments. We actually need the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty to create a just transition and regulate the supply of fossil fuels , not just tinker with demand-side measures.

            @maggie_mason Thanks for sharing that, I really hope that the rulings of the Court will be against these fossil fuel extractions! And yes, I totally agree, we need the Fossil Fuel Non Proliferation Treat

                              Norwegian court's move to invalidate oil production licenses is a laudable decision.

                                    This is a bold decision that targets to encouraging transition to use of renewable energy in Norway.
