Norway Approves Commercial Deep Sea Mining


Norway becomes the first country in the world to approve commercial deep-sea mining.

The bill, passed on Tuesday, will accelerate the hunt for precious metals which are in high demand for green technologies.

Environmental scientists have warned it could be devastating for marine life.

The plan concerns Norwegian waters, but agreement on mining in international waters could also be reached this year.

The Norwegian government said it was being cautious and would only begin issuing licences once further environmental studies were carried out.

          Aquatic life must be protected as a species we cannot keep plundering this world and expect no repercussions . Shame on Norway

            The ocean is not our playground to plunder; it is the lifeblood of our planet. Let's protect it with the same determination we fight climate change.

              Marine life needs care and protection and it is very disheartening to see Norway working against that

                    This is a bad decision that is going to harm aquatic life and disturb Norwegian seas. This must be recalled.

                      Sustainable and environmentally responsible practices should be prioritized to mitigate potential harm.

                        @princess_nel_268 I agree, decisions meant for profits without a consideration of the climatic repurcuaions must be stopped.
