Norway Moves Forward With Dumping Mine Tailings Into Førdefjord and Repparfjord!

While Norway shines, and sets good examples in some areas regarding environment, it completely and utterly fails in others. The minister of climate and environment, Ola Elvestuen, had recently stated that Norway will be moving forward with its plans to dump hazardous mine tailings into these two very important fjords. Both of which are homes to numerous marine life species ranging from cetaceans to crustaceans.

Do you live in another country but wish you could help in some way?

Bring awareness to this issue and share this photo with the following tags:
