According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Norway must immediately stop all new oil and gas exploration. 

We are running out of time, and there is no more room for making wrong decisions, the WWF pointed out on Monday. 

“Norway must immediately stop all new exploration for oil and gas, formulate a plan to reduce production from existing fields, and ensure that all choices made are in the best interests of the climate,” Secretary-General of the WWF Karoline Andaur stated.

In its second interim report, published in February, the Climate Panel outlined how further temperature increases will greatly increase the risk of floods, storms, droughts, and heatwaves worldwide.

“As the world’s seventh-largest exporter of CO2 emissions, we stand at a historic crossroads. Now is the time to take our rightful responsibility and contribute to emissions cuts,” Andaur said.
