Investing in climate destruction – for decades to come

Norway is doing it again – investing billions in climate chaos. The Norwegian government has given approval for oil companies to develop 19 oil and gas fields with investments exceeding 200 billion Norwegian crowns ($18.51 billion). This is part of the country's strategy to extend production for decades to come.
According to Reuters, Norway's parliament in 2020 introduced temporary tax incentives to encourage petroleum investment at a time of low activity. This triggered a rush of applications from energy companies.
When will Norway put a stop to this madness, and start investing these billions in climate solutions instead?

    Norway's position is very clear: they will do everything to maintain their fossil fuel industry without caring about people or the planet.

          Also, Norway's pension fund containing money Norway has gained on its oil is not focusing in investing in clean energy. The fund's value corresponds to 1.5 % of the value of all publicly listed companies in the world. Only 10% of the companies in which the fund is investing has committed themselves to net zero by 2050. It is a disgrace.

                The government should take bold and transformative steps towards a sustainable and low-carbon future

                  This raises concerns about the Norwegian government's commitment to combating climate change.

                          Last week, when they approved deep-sea mining, they said it was to "help transition to renewables and greener energy", do they know that oil and gas aren't considered green energy????? ⚠️
