For more than a week peaceful activists have protested in the Barents Sea against the Norwegian government’s aggressive search for oil in the fragile Arctic. Greenpeace Nordic and its co-plaintiff, Natur og Ungdom (Nature and Youth), will face the government in Court in Oslo in November, where the new drilling will be subject to a historic climate lawsuit. They argue that granting licenses to open a new oil frontier breaches the Norwegian Constitutional right to a healthy and safe environment for current and future generations and contravenes the Paris Agreement.Locations:Arctic-Europe-Lofoten-Nordic Countries-NorwayDate:27 Jul, 2017Credit:© Christian Åslund / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4237px X 1800pxKeywords:Aerial view-Climate (campaign title)-Clouds-Coastal features-Day-KWCI (GPI)-Landscapes-Mountains-Nature-Outdoors-Save the Arctic (campaign title)-ScenicShoot:Aerials of Statoil Oil Rig Songa Enabler in the ArcticAerials of Statoil oil rig Songa Enabler. Only two weeks after signing the Paris Climate Agreement, the Norwegian government decided to open up a completely new area in the Barents Sea for the first time in over 20 years. We can’t afford oil companies expansion into the world’s last frontiers searching for new oil if we are to keep our families and homes out of harm's way. 15 Oil drillings are expected this year in Arctic Barents Sea, a record number. The Norwegian state-owned Statoil alone is planning to drill five exploratory wells. The most northern and controversial is the Korpfjell license located more than 400 km from land. The oil licence is close to the Arctic ice edge, an important feeding ground for seabirds and wildlife. The remoteness of the area increases the response time for rescue if oil spills happen. The Norwegian government has ignored all warnings from environmental agencies and organisations.
