Thumbs up Norway decided to protect its valuable coastline from possible petroleum spills



Putting the value of nature in front of the need for oil, the new government of Norway has decided to protect its valuable coastline from possible impact from petroleum spills. Oil and gas activity there would threaten the world’s largest cod stock, the world’s largest cold water coral reef and mainland Europe’s biggest seabird colony. Earlier this year WWF-Norway ran a campaign to keep the coasts of Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja free from oil and gas exploration.

“This is a great victory for nature, and for renewable jobs and the transition to a 100% renewable society,” said Nina Jensen, CEO of WWF-Norway, who noted that the country is one of the world’s largest oil producers, with an economy largely dependent on oil, yet current conditions had forced the country to also consider the threat of carbon energy sources to the world's climate.
