Norway's "costly climate challenge" analysed
An analysis by Norway's pollution control authority (SFT) concludes that it is technically possible to reverse the upward trend in national greenhouse gas emissions but only at the cost of "tough measures". At current rates emissions will rise to 35% above 1990 levels by 2020. Even stabilising them at those levels will cost up to NKr200 (€25) per tonne of carbon dioxide, it concludes. Norway's target under the Kyoto protocol is for emissions to be no more than 1% above their 1990 level by 2008-12. See press release, summary and full report.
