Norway to allow mining waste to be dumped in fjords

Norway is set to allow dumping of mining waste in its Fjords after winning a case against environmental campaigners who tried to stop this action. This comes after a long dispute over 15years between Nordic mining and the environmental campaigners, and now after winning the case they'll be allowed to dispose 170 tonnes of mining waste in Førde fjord. It is sad that the government of Norway ignored a warning from Norwegian instute of Marine Research who says this is harmful to Marine life and it will put biodiversity at risk. Norway will not only harm marine life but also risk loosing their iconic feature considering that Norway has the longest, narrowest, deepest and most beautiful fjords in the World.

                            t's disheartening to learn that Norway is moving forward with allowing the dumping of mining waste in its pristine fjords, especially after a lengthy 15-year dispute with environmental campaigners. Winning the case against warnings from the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research, predicting harm to marine life and biodiversity, raises concerns about the government's priorities. The decision not only poses a threat to the unique and iconic features of Norway's fjords but also contradicts the global efforts to protect marine ecosystems. It's crucial for governments to prioritize environmental conservation over short-term gains and consider the long-term impact on the planet in the fight against climate change
