– The last straw must be Norwegian (Dagbladet Børsen)
– Norway must be the last country in the world to turn off the oil tap, demands a new LO heavyweight who sees the light of day today. The Norwegian petroleum sector, here represented by the oil platform Oseberg Øst, must be the last in the world to shut down, demands the new LO confederation IE & FLT, confederation leader Frode Alfheim. The list of requirements when the LO confederations Industri Energi and FLT (Confederation for Management and Technology) merge today, is polished and not to be mistaken. Other requirements are full speed with power development and a crystal clear yes to the EEA agreement. – We can see that there will be some political battles. But the fact that Norway has to be the last country in the world to wind down petroleum production should be a simple matter for the current government, believes confederation leader Frode Alfheim.

Sylvi asks Erna to turn around new pandemic powers: − Ignoring democracy (VG)
FRP leader Sylvi Listhaug accuses the Conservative Party and the government parties of introducing new pandemic powers that could set the Storting aside in a crisis situation. She asks Erna Solberg (H) to turn around. If Ap, SP and Høyre vote for the change in the law, they will have a majority in the Storting when the matter is decided on Tuesday. – The way it was handled last time during the corona pandemic, it worked well. The Storting quickly made decisions when there was a need and gave exceptions and authorizations to the government for a limited period, says Listhaug, who believes the change in the law is a disregard for democracy.

FRP top Terje Søvikne’s nectar to pay back million salary (NRK)
Framsteg party leader Terje Søviknes’s many political favors are causing uproar in his home county. The million salary for Søviknes will come up this week in Vestland County Council. There, Raudt will change the regulations for financial compensation to county politicians. The goal is to make it impossible for politicians to accept more allowances, as Søviknes does: As mayor of Bjørnafjorden, the FRP politician has a salary of NOK 1.1 million. In addition, he receives NOK 847,000 for being the FRP’s group leader in the county council, combined with sitting on the county committee. As a member of the board of the Municipal Sector’s interest organization (KS), he receives NOK 214,000. As deputy leader of the Frp, he earns NOK 150,000 a year. In total, Søviknes thus receives over NOK 2.4 million a year. The sea

NSM uses outdated framework to deal with cyber attacks (DN)
NSM’s national framework for handling cyber incidents has not been updated for six years, even though FFI already determined three years ago that it was “inadequate”, “misleading” and “not comprehensive”. Last autumn, the Ministry of Justice and Emergency Preparedness and NSM received a warning from the National Audit Office for not having updated the framework since 2017. According to the plan, the framework was to be revised every two years. But the national framework, which is to be used in Norway’s handling of major cyber incidents and provide the necessary tools and coordination ability, was also not updated following the National Audit Office’s remarks, writes DN. The newspaper has requested access to a number of documents, but was refused by the Ministry of Justice and Emergency Management. The sea

– Fossil phasing out is like a death sentence (Finansavisen)
A new draft decision at the climate summit in Dubai does not mention the phasing out of fossil energy, after strong pressure from Saudi Arabia. The draft, which nearly 200 countries must agree on, instead mentions a number of measures countries “can” take to become net emission-free by 2050. Among other things, mention is made of reducing “consumption and production of fossil fuels in a fair and orderly manner”. The Kuwaiti COP28 delegate Yehya Naji Al-Hadban believes that any fossil phase-out must be done “rationally and logically.” – The term “phasing out” is a decision on the lines of a death sentence, he said according to the Financial Times on Sunday, and pointed to demand for oil from developing countries which “turns the tables” to place the blame for climate change on oil-producing countries.

Climate naïves make climate cuts more difficult (Brage Baklien, consultant at Hill+Knowlton) (Finansavisen)
It may seem that climate naïves don’t really care about the climate, but just want to make life as difficult as possible for people. Climate naïves are against nuclear power which could replace dirty coal power, against fish farming which has a significantly lower carbon footprint than the alternatives, against self-financing wind turbines on land, and against the Norwegian oil industry which drives the development of renewable energy. Many climate naïves are also against cost-effective climate measures such as fertilizing the forests. Support for cutting emissions in Norway will not be increased by astronomical energy prices, a weak krone, increased taxes on electric cars and nurses who will soon not be able to afford a single home. The world needs more energy, and then we cannot be naive. The sea
