Norway looks to "low-emission" future

Norwegian environment minister Knut Arild Hareide is to appoint a commission to investigate the possibility of creating a "low-emission society" by 2050. The panel will be given 18 months to draw up the various "scenarios" by which domestic greenhouse gas emissions might be cut by 50-80%, the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. The scenarios will focus on expected technological developments and changes in "production and consumption patterns". The depth of cuts being aimed at is similar to that floated by the German government just over two years ago (EED 17/09/02). See press release.
