- Our Northern dimension
The Nordic governments have conducted a series of measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through green technology. But oil investments have increased because the Norwegian government has provided many new licenses.
Climate agreement in Doha in 2012 resulted in Norway, the EU, Australia, Ukraine and Switzerland agreed to cut their greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 by 30 percent by 2020. Agreement is between countries responsible for 14 percent of emissions worldwide.
The original Kyoto countries such as Russia, Japan and Canada withdrew, and China, India and the U.S. will not commit. The task now is to get China, U.S., Japan, India, South Korea, Canada, Russia, Brazil and South Africa to join the global cut of soot and CO emissions since 1990 by 30 % by 2020, 40 % by 2025 and 50 % by 2030 so that anthropogenic temperature rise does not exceed 1 º C compared to 1850 levels through zero particulate and carbon gas emissions in 2017 and zero community in greenhouse balance by 2023.
A new report from the Rainforest Foundation and Norwegian Society for the Conservation of nature says Norway invests NOK 82 billion in companies that ravage rainforests, while our Parliament, Stortinget, simultaneously allocates NOK 3 billion annually to save them.
All partners in the value chain of all-European states, climate and energy together with peace and environmental movement are to set guidelines for the political framework of the Organization the Northern Dimension by increasing CO2 taxes and redistribute, to eradicate poverty by 2014 and establish a zero-emission society with climate balance by 2023.
In 2011, the global military consumption has risen to over 1700 billion U.S. dollars according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
Universal Declaration endorses the work for UN consensus on a convention on the prohibition of nuclear weapons.
About 200 U.S. short-range tactical nuclear weapons are currently deployed in Europe and Turkey. Russia has the same type of nuclear weapons. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said in his speech in Chicago that `Tactical nuclear weapons must be part of upcoming negotiations, to reduce the role of nuclear weapons`.
Universal Declaration recommends the Nordic countries during the UN General Assembly to present a global blueprint for removing short-range tactical and long-range strategic nuclear weapons by 2020 to prevent implementation of the second phase of the missile shield.
Question needs to be addressed within parliamentary Conference on Northern Dimension and EU Member States, Commission and partner countries Norway, Russia, Iceland, USA and Canada must jointly adopt a policy framework and roadmap for: economic cooperation and outer security, education, research and culture.
Radars in Greenland and on Svalbard and the Globus II radar at Vardø follow like the radar systems in Alaska, Russia, Britain and Cuba active military satellites and also burnt satellites and over 10 000 objects in space. This is to get quick information on what is what, a rocket, a satellite or space junk.
Russian military specialist Pavel Felgenhauer said 17 July 2000 the Russian nuclear arms are programmed to attack the Vardø radar during an ongoing conflict. Defense chief Frisvold supported next day openly Norwegian support for developing an antimissile program.
Globus II radar in Vardø helped United States during war in Iraq, said a senior adviser at the Norwegian Space Centre, Terje Wahl, according to Bård Wormdal nrk.no. 12 October 2005.
Russian Foreign Ministry has demanded the liquidation of the station in Vardø in exchange for the Russian station in Cuba. Universal Declaration recommends entering an international agreement to share information as a confidence building measure. Such radar information should not be used to initiate war. Regulations of the UN Charter should be followed.
The Nordic campaign for nuclear-free zone in the Nordic countries almost 30 years ago was able to collect millions of signatures for the confidence-building zone. The Nordic countries must establish a confidence-building zone free of nuclear arms for their own spaces in the Arctic by 2015 in cooperation with Arctic Council, Barents Council and Baltic Council.
Universal Declaration recommends the nuclear powers; US, Russia, France, UK, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea to sign and treaty nuclear arms-free and trustworthy zones and enter into binding legal obligations in relation to the safety of the 110 countries with established nuclear arms-free zones.
The Nordic countries must move towards a resolution of the UN General Assembly that the U.S., Russia, India and China freeze developing their fifth-generation fighter aircraft.
The Nordic countries must unite in UN General Assembly for a pan-European and universal disarmament.
Level of CO2 in the atmosphere was first measured at over 400 ppm (parts per million) in summer 2012 at the station in Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard.
World CO2 emissions reached record levels in 2011, increasing by three percent annually.
UN Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015, zero-emission society in 2017 and the world community must agree on a strategy for achieving climate balance by 2020.
Confidence-building mechanism with forecast by military exercises gets bigger disarmament policy relevance through military cooperation. It must be tuned by trustworthy parliamentary work for our Northern Dimension roadmap for internal and external security.
Cooperation room for inner and external security will make it easier for states with different alliance affiliations and neutral states, countries of nuclear weapons free zones, nonaligned states movement, Collective Security Treaty Organization, CSTO and NATO to match national or allied military exercises in favor of right to peace, joint and collective security.
Barents Council in 2013 marks the 20th years anniversary for signing of Kirkenes Declaration on cooperation in the Barents Region. An informal workgroup is established in the Norwegian Foreign Ministry and is headed by Senior Advisor Sverre Jervell. It will work closely with countries in the the Barents Region, other relevant partners and will during the autumn 2012 forward the proposals and input to the Norwegian Chairmanship of Barents Council. Inputs will then be used in formal consultation processes on an updated declaration between the various participants in the Barents Cooperation. According to a statement from the Foreign Ministry, the informal workgroup opens for new ideas and suggestions.
International community is now faced the task to fulfill Millennium Development Goals in 2015. Confidence-building work for nuclear security and for inner and external security must implement conversion mechanisms to reduce global military resource use. A plan view for international disarmament will free up funds to meet poverty and climate change.
Switching to common and collective security for the Summit Rio +20 in June 2012 is a question about green solidary political economy for Mother Earth.
The Norwegian Government laid on April 25th 2012 its report on climate policy to the Norwegian Parliament. Climate goals in the Norwegian climate policy compromise since 2008, remains unchanged. The challenge is to get the Nordic and European countries to adapt to meet future requirements to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
In this context, Norwegian Enova technology is strengthened by Norwegian kroner (NOK) 5 billion in 2013 and a capital amounting to 50 billion NOK in 2020. Nordic countries should by 2020 set aside 250 billion NOK to show the way and encourage pan-European restructuring.
The funds must follow up efforts in close cooperation with municipalities and counties, business, research, climate and pollution agency and other government agencies.
The Norwegian Government will ensure developing new energy and new networks to prevent regional imbalances in development times. Biodiversity must be ensured through appropriate measures costs. To provide companies with increased incentives for electrification of the Norwegian continental shelf, the Norwegian government must increase the CO2 tax on petroleum activities from the reported 200 to 1000 NOK per tonne by 2017 with a corresponding fee for all transfers. The Nordic countries' strategy for wind power, marine power plants and power from land and coordination should be under Norwegian auspices of the Nordic Council to promote a climate-friendly operation of oil and gas fields in a new drive for Mother Earth
Environmentally friendly technology investments in sea,- rail- and public transport, as well as expansion plans for the development of national intercity connections should be in experience interact within the framework of Northern Dimension Partnership for transport and logistics (NDPTL). Funding for pedestrian and bicycle paths should triple by 2017. Motor vehicle taxes should be a tool for plug-in hybrid vehicles can access parking with charging option in the creation of a new pan-European supply chain for a CO2-free vehicle fleet by 2020.
Action plan for energy efficiency within the organization the Northern Dimension is to ensure that the energy requirements of building regulations become more stringent to active level in 2015 and zero energy level in 2020 to increase carbon storage through active, sustainable forestry policy with strengthened efforts in forest plant, increased plant density and the reintroduction of the ban on felling of young trees to improve forest protection. Increased afforestation is an initiative to develop biogas, along with farm-based biogas plants for manure and waste.
Norway has, within an overall framework proposed increasing aid climate and forest initiative beyond 12 billion annually. Nordic countries will contribute to the reduction of short-lived climate drivers such as soot and methane through a reinforced international engagement. To establish a green solidarity tax for Mother Earth in the Nordic countries of 100 billion by 2015 for climate and the elimination of poverty and 250 billion by 2020 will be an important contribution and stimulus for establishing an international supply chain of green solidarity tax for Mother Earth in UN member states.
Nordic countries will contribute to the reduction of short-lived climate drivers such as soot and methane through a reinforced international engagement.
By providing independent contribution to climate research the Nordic countries are setting the correct climate goals and establish spacious green solidarity taxes to ensure diversity on Mother Earth.
It is urgent because the annual mean temperature for industrialization is from 1850 increased by 0.78 º C and is about to rise to 1 ° C.
"- It will mean ice-free summers in the Arctic, and a significant melting of the Greenland ice sheet," says professor of past climate research and President Eystein Jansen, at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research in Bergen.
From earlier times, we know that if the ice is halved in the Arctic, there will be significant melting of Greenland`s ice sheet which was 30% less at the time and then melting was partly due to changes in the earth's axis.
The regional differences are large, but still there is a rise of land masses in many places in Norway with 2 to 5 millimeters per year. Norwegian Mapping Authority presented on April 122012 a "normal projection" until the year 2100 where the water level will drop by 10 centimeters, while the water level will increase in Tromsø by 11 cm, in Bergen by 21 cm and in Stavanger by 28 cm. According to the maximum water level forecast there will be an increase in Oslo by 83 cm, in Trondheim by up to 82 cm and in Tromsø by 106 cm.
Mapping Authority has through its monitoring stations on land and at sea found that the country will rise approx. 20 centimeters more in the next one hundred years than what is currently believed. Eastern area rises by approx. 4 millimeters a year, while the expected water level increases by three millimeters. But things can change rapidly, as ocean currents along the Norwegian coast, in the Norwegian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean are sensitive to melting in the Arctic and Antarctica.
Atlantic Gulf Stream, a key part of a global network of ocean currents that influence climate. Wind is the main force that moves the Gulf Stream. A vertical movement of the water pushes it also place.
The U.S. Navy officer Matthev Fontaine Maury published in 1855 the book The Gulf Stream, where the stream itself was hailed for mild winters in northern Europe.
But not everyone shares this opinion. ` - Firstly, there is no clear correlation between the strength of the Gulf Stream and how much hot water is flowing into the Norwegian Sea. There are climate models show that the Norwegian Sea is heated by a strong Gulf Stream, but there are also models where there is no relation between a hot and strong Gulf Stream and the temperature of our oceans. In the model we have developed in Bergen, it is so. Secondly, there is relatively little correlation between how hot the water in the Norwegian Sea is and how winter temperatures on land are `, says Tore Furevik, professor at the university and head of the Bjerknes Centre in Bergen.
But the Gulf Stream has a major impact on the warming of the Barents Sea and thus the extent of ice in the Arctic Ocean. Prevalence of ice is of great importance for temperature over land.
Northwest weather brings more heat than the Gulf Stream, according to Furevik. The Rocky Mountains range with over one hundred peaks of over 4,000 meters, on the U.S. west coast has important climate influence in Europe, because the Mountains stand in the way of huge air masses that come blowing from the Pacific to the U.S. West Coast. When they meet the mountains, they are pushed to the south. Along the way, they take up the warm and humid air from the warm Gulf Stream north and west across the Atlantic to us.
`There are studies that suggest that the effect of the Rocky Mountains may constitute 45-50% of the warming of our waters, and the effects of the westerly winds blowing over the ocean before it reaches Europe means about as much. This means that only left less than 10% of Gulfstream effect ', says Furevik.
But what are the implications for the air currents of long cold periods and snow remains in the Rocky Mountains as it was during the last ice age?
Climate change causes more extreme weather in Europe and North America. One explanation is the ice around the North Pole affecting wind systems. They are of great importance for the weather to the south. When sea ice melts, the wind system is weakened. These winds are called the polar jet stream in the Northern Hemisphere. Thus, many high and low pressure will remain silent for a long time, according to a new study by a group of American scientists. This means increased risk of long-term rainfall and droughts.
`We get` blocking' high pressure that may be present for several weeks and lead to cold weather in winter`, said Tore Furevik, professor at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Bergen NTB.
`We get `blocking' high pressure that may be present for several weeks and lead to cold weather in winter `according to Tore Furevik, the Norwegian professor at the Geophysical Institute at the University in Bergen, interviewed by the Norwegian News Agency, NTB.
Furevik added: 'My view is that the climate in the Arctic passed a tipping point in 2007. We need many cold summers and winters to regain ice the conditions we had earlier`. He was supported by marine scientist Peter Wadhams at Cambridge University, who fears the summer ice in the Arctic will collapse completely within four years. He calls melting a disaster with major negative consequences.
Sea began to freeze up again in week 37 2012. Before that ice cover had shrunk to 3.4 million square km, according to U.S. researchers. The area was reduced by over 18% compared to the record year of 2007.
The petroleum industry delivers a product that is not good for the world: polluting oil and gas that contributes to global warming. Energy-intensive industrial supply products the world has a growing need for: aluminum, silicon and mineral fertilizers. The energy-intensive industries are world leaders in environmentally friendly production of these products, while Norwegian oil pollute more than Middle Eastern oil. Norwegian petroleum sector increased its emissions by over 77 percent in 2010 compared to 1990 levels, while the mainland industry reduced emissions by over 37 percent. The Norwegian government`s Climate and Pollution Agency (Klif) has opened for an exemption culture. Petroleum Safety Authority (Ptil) has revealed that 30 oil wells were not well enough secured.
The oil industry must be result-oriented in relation to health, safety and security. Energy and Oil Minister Ola Borten Moe must require two thirds cut in CO2 emissions compared to 1990 levels to the 20 companies operating on the Norwegian shelf. Companies have to shut down operations that do not hold the norm for CO2 cuts by 2017 for oil and gas industry or
being nationalized at a cost calculated by subtraction of pollution based on export volumes of oil and gas.
Companies have to shut down companies that do not hold the norm for CO2 cuts by 2017 for oil and gas industry or the nationalized after it is taken into account how much is invested deduction of pollution based on export volumes of oil and gas,
Companies have to shut down operations that do not hold the norm for CO2 cuts by 2017 for oil and gas industry or nationalized after it is taken into account how much is invested.
An international CO2 – tax and nationalization are needed to reduce soot and CO2 emissions by 2017. Common security to ensure that the average temperature on Earth does not increase above a level and temperature in the Arctic, rising to ten degrees as a result of the production costs of fossil fuels is lower than the "green" energy.
"West's share of world GDP was over 60% in the 1960s- and 1970s. Now it is at full speed down to 40%, and in the middle of this century it may be as low as 30%. It therefore points towards a very different world than the one we are accustomed to assume," Defence Minister of Norway, Espen Barth Eide, writes in an article in the Norwegian Defence Association's magazine, Norges Forsvar nr 1/12. These changes should be part of the 1000-year fire`s message for: peace, openness and solidarity, while the U.S. has now withdrawn from Iraq and Norway is pulling out of Afghanistan by 2013.
Large land areas far from land in Central Asia, North Africa and Central America should not exceed two-degree rise in temperature. Heat waves and drought must not increase if we want to avoid the consequences for food supply.
Climate change is caused by humans. It has for many years been as has been emphasized by the IPCC, United Nations International Panel on climate change, for years. The Norwegian appeal for compromise in Durban was presented to initiate a constructive movement around climate change. India, China and the United States were for the first time willing to participate in the process towards a future legal agreement to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
A change in attitude is about to emerge as these countries themselves are increasingly being affected by climate change.
Climate agreement in Doha in 2012 resulted in commitments from Norway, Switzerland, Australia and the EU to cut their greenhouse gas emissions by 1990 with 30% by 2020. The agreement made between countries responsible for 14% of emissions worldwide.
Now the task is to get China, U.S., Japan, South Korea, Canada, South Korea, Russia, Brazil and South Africa to join the global cut of soot and CO2 emissions from 1990 with 30% by 2020, 40% by 2025 and 50% by 2030. It is necessary to prevent the temperature rise caused by people not to exceed 1 ° C compared to the 1850 level. It may be achieved through zero particulate and carbon gas emissions by 2017 and a zero-emission society in climate balance by 2023.
It is urgent because increasing amounts of cold fresh water located in the Norwegian Sea after the melting of ice in the Arctic now slows the Gulf Stream speed northwards. The cold fresh water in the Norwegian Sea on the way southward flows over Iceland Ridge and out between Faroe Islands and the Hebrides, where it meets the warmer and more saline ocean currents in the North Atlantic. During previous ice ages parts of the Gulf Stream was bent in an easterly direction towards the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands.
The Norwegian research vessel GO Sars has previously operated in the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic. This ship must still be used to presenting new real research results in terms of climate models at the University of Bergen and the Centre for Climate Dynamics at the Bjerknes Centre in Bergen.
Anthropogenic climate change has increased due to CO2-polluting industrialization. The northern hemisphere is exposed to extreme weather as a result of climate change, but the prevailing commercial CO2 order must be changed to prevent a temperature drop of 10 º C corresponding to the ice age 18,000 years ago. The technological leading industrial and developing countries in all sectors of society have to adopt goals, plan economic restructions and ensure funds to stop global warming.
Redistribution of heat from the equator to the poles drives wind and ocean currents: the Gulf Stream and the jet streams. These flows have followed a similar pattern since the end of the last Ice Age around 10,000 years ago. When we interfere with them and the Arctic polar ice melts, there will be serious consequences for all life on Mother Earth.
Canada's per capita is on top in the world in greenhouse gas emissions. The country's leaders declared December 13, 2011 that their stepping out of the Kyoto Protocol, so far the only agreement on the reduction of CO2 emissions in the world. In order to avoid being sanctioned financially as a result of the Kyoto Protocol, Canada should have reduced its CO2 emissions by 6% in relation to the 1990 level until 2012. An immediate reaction to Canada`s weakened efforts in the global fight to prevent human-induced climate change, is to warn of a 50 % exclusion of European funding from the Canadian industry and government bonds by July 2012 with 100% extraction by the end of 2012.
Before and during the climate summit in Durban, the annual World Energy Outlook from the International Energy Agency (IEA) was debated in relation to the 2-degree target and the disastrous direction of the disastrous direction of controlling the planet's prevailing courses.
"With the existing energy infrastructure - factories, power plants, buildings - we have already used 80 % of the allowable amount of CO2 emissions until 2035," concluded the IEA-report`s lead author Fatih Birol.
IEA makes clear that the problem in all its simplicity is about money and investments. Today, the world's governments subsidize fossil fuels with more than 400 billion dollars a year. In comparison, renewable energy was backed by 64 billion dollars in 2010. This makes the price of energy from coal, oil and gas cheaper than the green energy from wind, water and sun.
Today, we build the pipelines, power plants and oil refineries to provide returns over 50-60 years. This investment perspective must be changed before the Environmental Conference Rio + 20. The direction of the state subsidies can be quickly changed by using the budget resolution. The same must be done through the adoption of Climate Legislation in 2012 that criminalizes CO2 polluting investments. A climate agreement until 2020 is too late.
Norwegian counties have required government procurement arrangements for local climate, where municipalities "sell" CO2 cuts to the state. They want broad social funding for local and regional initiatives to promote soot and CO2 reductions in Norwegian counties by 2017.
In Norway, we are prepared to share our technology and expertise with other countries in favour of sustainable development. The Government confirms that the world needs pure energy through the Energy + initiative launched at the Ministerial Conference in Oslo in the autumn of 2011.
Norway has built the world's first floating wind turbine, the world's largest wind turbine, the world's first osmotic power plant, the world's first tidal power plant, the first plant simulated technical / botanical climate and energy solution for greenhouse, and technology center at Mongstad, north of Bergen. The Climate Report, together with the processes at Mongstad still are important factors strengthening the climate agreement of Doha in 2012.
It is important for Norway establishing a first full-scale CO2 capture at Melkøya, Mongstad and Kårstø up to 2017. Besides, we need CO2 capture other emission points; cars, buses, tractors, boats and airplanes. During the period when Norway led the Nordic Council in 2012, required construction of soot and CO2 reductions were established to reduce emissions in the Nordic countries within 2017.
Global greenhouse gas emissions of CO2 increased dramatically from 2010 to 2011. A total of 9,470,853,675 tons were discharged on the planet in 2010, worst year ever since records began in 1751.
Following the Norwegian climate report, the pension funds abroad (SPU) with a value of over 3500 billion NOK or about 452 billion euro will give priority to green solidarity investments in a technological change on the way to zero-emission society in 2017 and climate balance by 2020.
Universal Declaration allows EMU's rescue fund (ESM and EFSF) which is increased to 750 billion euro also to be part of the green solidarity strategy to abolish unemployment and poverty nationally and globally.
Targeted use of SPU and the EMU through green sustainable investments will ensure that CO2 emissions and fossil-based production and transport without carbon capture is scrapped by 2017.
In today's Norway, the municipalities are responsible for nearly 70 % of the welfare services.
Local economy is crucial for people`s welfare. It should also have a key role in establishing zero emission communities and municipalities in climate balance. Norwegian government has to allocate sufficient funds to cover the needs of the welfare sector and establish necessary support or funds.
The last ten years, local governments` debt in Norway has quadrupled from 40 billion in 2002 to almost 170 billion in 2011. Norwegian municipalities had at the end of 2010 an aggregate pension deficit of 23 billion. Norwegian Association of Local Authorities estimated that the deficit will grow to 35 billion, according to the farmer`s party`s newspaper `Nationen` 26 October 2011. Inadequate funding for municipalities and health authorities are not due to lack of resources, as the The Government Pension Fund Global SPU, manages 3,000 billion!
Universal Declaration recommends Norway to use 500 billion in Norway to erase debt:
1. The municipal sector
2. Health enterprises
1000 billion NOK to be earmarked to support or fund for energy efficiency, energy saving and climate-neutral restructuring in Norway and the Nordic countries in:
1. Housing sector
2. Municipal and county municipalities
3. The State
4. The industry
5. Transportation and other services
Environmental Movement, trade unions and industry will gather strength, and the Nordic countries are under Norwegian leadership of the Nordic Council by example in 2012 to implement effective mechanisms to promote the establishment of zero-emission society in climate balance of culture, local food and goods, welfare and care to all.
The Norwegian budgetary rule first introduced in 2001 to ensure that the sovereign wealth fund with a vast majority of its dealings related to activities in the petroleum industry would secure sustainable development for the future generations of Norway. This budgetary rule should no longer inhibit the Norwegian government in facilitating to meet people's care and health needs and the dynamic changes in energy and CO2 emissions sector.
The Norwegian program for the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2012 is a good starting point to fill up with content, and the Nordic Investment Bank must trigger stimulus packages in a Northern European offensive on the way to zero-emission society by 2017, and communities in climate balance by 2020.
Green solidarity tax for Mother Earth in the Nordic countries for the right to peace, culture, climate balance, work, welfare and care for all will encourage businesses and governments that implement these objectives as part of a global sustainable change to prevent further temperature rise.
Cooperation has previously contributed to Norway's major renewable natural and cultural resources that created thousands of new jobs and new pathways. Wind power requires wind turbines, small hydro power plans requires streams into pipes, and renewable power need power lines to reach consumers.
Norway and the Nordic countries constitute a resource to affect the world community to accelerate the transition from fossil to renewable energy to establish zero-emission society in the climate balance.
Study of 15 different locations for offshore wind energy was started in Norway in November 2011. They can produce almost 44 TWh of renewable electricity. In comparison, Norway produces currently about 120 TWh. New technology, increased knowledge, based on private and public financing, is a potential we have to use.
High costs mean that offshore wind power is not profitable in today's energy market. As with other promising technologies, it is therefore necessary to start in a niche market where both the willingness to pay and the benefits are high. The supply of future oil and gas installations is such a niche market.
In light of developments in the oil and gas production, Norway has the domestic market as needed to develop offshore wind power up to 2017 to a large renewable energy sector in Norway. That opportunity must be ensured through the Climate Report and the budget proposals.
Norway has an international obligation to prevent temperatun on the planet should not increase more than two degrees.In accordance with the compromise on climate change in Durban should OPEC countries, Norway and Russia leave much of the oil and gas resources remain in the ground. This is the consequence if the world's countries in 2012 do not agree to initiate production that implements technology for CO2 capture and zero emissions of greenhouse gases in all installations with fossil fuel combustion. The simulated plant technical / botanical climate and energy solution for the greenhouse at Mære agricultural college in North Trøndelag is currently a world leader in this technology. From 2012 should develop packages of measures to implement the solution in what is being built up to 2020.
Sustainable clean energy solutions, climate targets for zero-emission society in the climate balance will be ensured by a set of good Norwegian standards promoted before the Rio Environment Conference 20 on the head of state level in June 2012.
Norway will use its network in the Nordic Council, the Barents Council, the Baltic Council, Arctic Council, the European Union, including indigenous peoples to discuss the Norwegian proposal for a pan-European standards and all-European stimulus packages. The change should take into account to liquidate an obsolete mercantile CO2 polluting the world system in favor of a business and rights based value system of care for all.
The next Parliamentary meeting within the framework of the Northern Dimension Parliamentary Assembly in Moscow in 2013 must join such a line.
WWF's Energy Report shows that people are able to meet their energy needs with 100 percent renewable energy in the world by 2050. This will both be profitable and possible with today's available technology. Renewable energy is the fastest growing part of the energy sector in the world; 15.4% last year, while gas and oil sector also increased by 7.4% and 3.1%.
After discussion and decision process in Durban up to 2020, the Sami Parliament and the Norwegian Parliament to promote a national industrial policy with a capacity of wind mills and solar companies. Fiscal dumping of green solidarity work and green solidarity capital is criminalized nationally and globally. It must be fought by establishing a green solidarity international market with nationalization and the reversion to eliminate hunger and poverty.
Good measures and support to homeowners, housing associations, municipalities and businesses to ensure a good and sustainable market for energy-friendly products and solutions. The effect of the shift to clean energy will be accelerated, and energy conservation and efficiency should show municipalities and other states the way to zero in the climate community balance.
Ministry of Finance should in 2012 phase out for fossil energy supplies which currently covers 78 % of exploration costs to oil companies. It amounted to 9.1 billion NOK in 2009 and these resources should instead invest in renewable energy and energy conservation.
Government Pension Fund - Global (SPU) with worth over 3000 billion, or about 388 billion euro - almost as large as the EU rescue fund EFSF of 440 billion euro - now investing in EFSF. The investments will stimulate EU to set conditions to make the CO2-polluting venture capital cover losses in an effective restructuring of European banking sector. The perspective also applies to international financial sector in relation to the UN Millennium Development Goals, clean energy, energy efficiency, zero emissions by 2017 communities and society in the climate balance.
Emissions from the Norwegian petroleum sector should not increase with 3 million tons the next 8 years. The Government's aim must be that 85% of energy consumed in 2020 will be renewable. Bioenergy should not occupy large land areas to be used in food production.
In a world where one billion people are starving, Norwegian Government should ensure the Norwegian agriculture and protect an open landscape. Norwegian produced food and support to meat will utilize Norwegian pasture resources. Reduced imports of grain is a sustainable change in a mercantile world order. Our self-sufficiency degree of food from Norwegian farming must be increased to 55 % by 2017, 60 % in 2022 and 70 % within 2030 with funds from SPU.
Norwegian petroleum industry currently generates air pollution that is twelve times higher than Norway's total emissions.
Since 2001 there has been a decline in oil production in Norway from 3.12 million barrels per day in 2000 to 1.72 million barrels per day in 2011. This positive reduction in oil production, Norway must lead further down to 0.2 million barrels per day if the global demands for CO2 capture are not implemented by 2017. It is a goal for Norway to promote long-term sustainable management of oil reserves and other fossil energy reserves of Mother Earth.
Norway must work to restructure the business participants to the benefit of clean energy production in a European and global management of energy without CO2 pollution. In the stage of transition towards 2020, power plants with CO2 capture together with water and wind power make the transfer of clean energy to European countries and promote pan-European coordination through arrangements made by the countries.
Goal is reduce of CO2 emissions of 100% over pre-industrial level, the rise in temperature should not exceed 1 ° C relative to 1850 levels and re-establish zero carbon gas emissions society by 2017. Nuclear weapons and the global military-industrial complex abandoned in favor of using the resources to ensure the climate balance of zero-emission society by 2020.
The countries of Europe, America, Asia, Africa and Australia will reduce the man-made CO2 pollution strengthening the global community feeling. Agreed solutions will also stimulate discussion and financing to the benefit of the UN Millennium Development Goals.
Communities of Europe, Asia and North America are currently facing major challenges. Climate change has started. A new ice age may be in full scale within 70 years if the anthropogenic rise in temperature is not stopped.
People in the northern hemisphere are not only challenged by climate change and poverty. European fascism directed attacks by a car bomb in the government quarter and a massacre of youths participating at a summer camp on July 22nd 2011. The camp was organized by AUF, the youth division of the Norwegian Labour Party. 8 were killed by the bomb at the ministries and 69 were shot at Utøya. Car bomb and massacre must be considered as political attacks on the basic democratic values in Norway.
His Majesty King Harald said during the memorial service in Oslo Spektrum on August 21: `As a nation we`ll take this time with us in our hearts and in our experience - and remember that we are awakened to a new awareness of what really matters to us.`
The Norwegian people rejected the terror acts spontaneously and massively by tremendous support for the flower markings and rose-demos in towns and cities all over the country. The Norwegian state is characterized by the democratic principles of justice. Premeditated murder and terrorist acts committed by violent men should be judged by a fair trial. European fascism is a political position. If people with violent ideological attitude commit cruel acts directed against our democratic order, they must be sentenced to imprisonment, but those who need mental care should also have it in our prison.
We face many local, national and global challenges. Our goal must be to restructure the global community for permanent peace and climate neutrality in order to provide work for a billion people, welfare and care to 2.6 billion people living in poverty.
National and global collaboration must overcome the folly and hatred. Every rose is an obligation for the climate and that poverty will become history.
The countries must develop a global energy convention for clean energy and put it before the UN General Assembly.
In Norway, oil companies after the 1970's - primarily by resource considerations - found out that it is advantageous to utilize the gas that comes from production of oil and pump it back to get more oil.
The problem of burning gas or oil use today is that most of the CO2 emission sources do not have equipment that ensures the capture of CO2 or soot. There are emitted 400 million tons of CO2 in the world as a result of flaring, ie, the oil companies are not stopped by the State authorities through the prohibition of burning gas or oil or other CO2 emissions. The soot emissions account for 17 % of the global warming. A reduction of those emissions will reduce warming by 3 ° F (about 1.7 ° C) in 15 years. It corresponds to the warming that has occurred over the last 100 years.
Previous climate models have not emphasized the effect of soot particles, especially in the clouds. Soot comes from a variety of sources: Diesel engines in cars, buses, boats, airplanes, farm equipment and biofuel engines, but also from the burning of rain forests or heating with oil or wood.
When soot particles come up in the atmosphere, they absorb the heat that they later give up in the air. Engines using fossil fuels, must be equipped with filters that remove soot. The global CO2 emissions from oil, gas and coal must be reduced to 75% by 2015 to avoid temperature rise exceeding 1 ° C relative to 1850 levels to ensure gas carbon neutrality in 2017. By 2017 it is possible to reduce the climate impact of black carbon and CO2 emissions.
Love for life, nature, culture and our commitment to the community is strengthened by people living in peace with each other. Trust and collective security to eliminate all nuclear weapons, to remove the global military industrial complex and make zero-emission society in the climate balance by 2020.
Norway is a small country, but we fill a key role. OurNorthern Dimension uses the slogan: Clean energy for development. Toolbox for Sámi Parliament representatives, parliamentary representatives and government officials in Norway will therefore offer the world finance with funds from the SPU, to
green solidarity taxfor Mother Earth in the Nordic region.
UN General Assembly's first special session for Disarmament concluded its work in New York on 1 July 1978 and adopted by consensus "Final Act" which recommended `the establishment of nuclear free zones are important steps towards disarmament.`
In the 1980s millions of signatures were collected in the Nordic countries for a treaty nuclear-free zone in the North.
110 countries have now established the world's five nuclear-free and WMD-free zones. All UN member countries have joined the NPT - Non-Proliferation Treaty of nuclear weapons - with the exception of Israel, Pakistan and India. North Korea has withdrawn from the treaty.
In many countries politicians struggle today to liberate the economy and communities from the straitjacket of destructive speculation economy, the global military-industrial complex, soot and CO2 polluters.
Universal Declaration recommends the UN General Assembly to create permanent standing UN peacekeeping forces and adopt a convention to convert the state-funded military industrial complex and abolish all the operational, tactical and strategic nuclear weapons and their means of delivery by 2020:
Number of warheads
Nuclear power Year: 2012 2014 2016 2018 2020
USA 5113 1500 750 300 0
Russia 4650 1500 750 300 0
UK 185 170 100 50 0
France 300 250 150 75 0
China 180 160 100 50 0
Israel 80 30 0 0 0
Pakistan 70–90 50 25 15 0
India 60-80 50 25 15 0
North Korea <10 5 0 0 0
Above is supporting the UN Security Council's goal of global zero - for nuclear weapons and is prepared on the basis of information on 27 of May 2009 in the `Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists`, `The Guardian`, `Federation of American Scientists` and `VG`. During the NPT conference in New York 3 May 2010 the USA announced for the first time its number of nuclear warheads. U.S. has 5,113 nuclear warheads, according to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. 26 November 2011 the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement decided to support a ban on nuclear weapons.
Peace - Restructuring - Shutdown - Conversion - Zero Emission
First, by 2014 the coal plant at Boundary Dam near Estevan in Saskatchewan, Canada, will be the first full-scale power plant with CO2 cleaning. The global challenge is similar cleaning in all parts of the CO2-polluting economy, the consumption sector and the community. CO2-polluting plants or installations to be closed and only opened again when the technology for clean production and transport are in place.
Since 1990, the year when the Kyoto Protocol was set as reference point for greenhouse gas emissions, it is reported that industry's emissions of greenhouse gases in Norway has fallen from 19.4 million tonnes CO2 equivalents in 1990 to 12.5 million tonnes in 2010. But others say that CO2 emissions were at 43.8 million tonnes!
In Norway, total emissions amounted to 53.7 million tonnes CO2 equivalents in 2010. The major emission sectors are petroleum production (13.7 million tons), manufacturing (12.5 million tonnes) and transport (8.5 million tonnes).
Alpha Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by 2.3% from 2010 to 2011 and has declined in every sector, says the Norwegian Environment Ministry 8th May 2012, while GDP in Norway grew by 1.6 percent in the same period. The reductions in oil and gas production, less oil heating and lower production of gas is the main cause of decline last year. Total CO2 emissions was 52.7 million tonnes in 2011; lowest emissions since 1995, with the exception of the financial crisis year 2009.
1. Implement the restructuring programs to phase out all the soot and CO2-polluting gas turbines offshore and replace them with non-polluting gas turbines or electrifying Norwegian continental shelf with floating windmills by 2015. CO2 reduction: 13.7 million tonnes.
2. Implement the restructuring programs to reduce industrial soot and CO2 pollution down to 5 million tonnes by 2015 on road to industrial society in climate balance. CO2 reduction: 12.5 million tonnes.
3. National transport plans to ensure sustainable transport lines to reduce the transport of soot and CO2 pollution. Equipment to soot and CO2 capture installed on all polluting sources or shut down from 2012 until the technologies with CO2 capture is implemented. Railway development to be accelerated, disused railway lines reestablished and new built. 80% of freight and 60% of passenger traffic are to be transferred from road and air to rail and sea as a key step towards transport sector in climate balance. CO2 reduction: 8.5 million tonnes.
4. Similar goals are incorporated into the national transport plans for all the countries which cooperate within the framework of the Northern Dimension - Partnership for Transport and Logistics (NDPTL) in 2011, and the next meeting in Moscow in 2013. Similar strategies are developed and adopted at meetings of each continent of the world in 2012.
5. Implement the restructuring programs to reduce society's CO2 pollution with reductions of 24.2 million tonnes CO2 equivalents in Norway in 2015. However, this will not be more than slightly above 50% CO2 reduction. Emissions of CO2 equivalents should be reduced further to 29.5 million tons - calculated from the number in 2010 - if Norway is to be a society in climate balance and we should follow up Norwegian and global goal of zero emissions society by 2017 and in climate balance by 2020.
6. After the Earth Summit in Doha in 2012 the continents restructuring programs locally, regionally and nationally, must be expressed in a plan A for Mother Earth, when the Kyoto Protocol expires in 2020.
We have to strengthen the international finance system, real economy and societies` ability to adapt for right to peace, culture, climate balance, work, welfare and care for all in 2012. International solidarity will also be enhanced by excluding speculative economy from the world's stock exchanges in 2012. Nuclear weapons shall be removed and the global military-industrial complex converted to ensure zero-emission society by 2017 and world community in climate balance by 2020.
Government Pension Fund (SPU) must draw funds out of countries, companies and activities that do not work for everyone, or abolish hunger by 2012 and provide welfare and care to all by 2015.
Soot and CO2 reductions to ensure human-induced temperature rise not to exceed 1 ° C relative to 1850 levels. Nuclear weapons and global military-industrial complex be abolished to ensure zero-emission society in climate balance by 2020.
Ministry of Finance owns shares in many European banks through the Fund. The influence of NOK 3000 billion must be used to achieve the above goals.
UN green solidarity funds must ensure necessary financial transfers to the right for peace, culture, climate balance, local food and goods, work, welfare and care for all. It is necessary to improve research, education and infrastructure, changing activities, restructure or close down operations and activities of arms production, soot or CO2 emissions.
State, local governments, businesses and private individuals have independent responsibility to reducing fossil energy consumption and globally phasing out soot and CO2 emissions. Temperature rise shall not exceed 1 ° C relative to 1850 levels.
A national and international voluntary work with all responsible cooperating partners for our Northern Dimension was initiated in autumn 2011. Participants were the Norwegian Trade Unions LO, other wage earners 'organizations, employers' organization NHO, the municipal employer organization KS, the Norwegian government and NGOs.
Shareholder dividends in the Nordic countries, higher than 3% of the nominal value shall be taxed and redistributed throughout Green solidarity funds in the region.
Norway must present the contents of national volunteer efforts and proposals to international funding solutions before the Rio + 20 Conference, to show how to achieve zero emission community in climate balance by 2020.
Universal Declaration recommends the UN General Assembly in 2012 makes decisions whether to:
* establish new Millennium for the UN member states by ending the NATO and BRIC countries' military alliance with the intention of reducing the military budget down to 0.5% of GDP in 2015, 0.0% of GDP by 2020 to ensure peace, culture, climate balance, work, welfare and care for all through converting the military industrial complex for the benefit of the common and collective security with zero social climate in balance by 2020.
* cease all military training in NATO and CSTO in the north-east and south-European and the Asian region.
* create a nuclear-free zone consisting of Nordic and Baltic countries, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, the countries of central Asia, the former Yugoslavia and the nuclear-free states of the EU.
* abolish NATO and CSTOs conventional and nuclear deterrence.
* dissolve NATO and the CSTO in 2012 based on a globalized Nordic principle of joint and collective security between individuals, peoples and states based on UN General Assembly.
* close stock markets and convert armaments industry by 2020 as a confidence-building precondition for democratic control of speculative capital in private and public sectors.
* 70% reduction of dependence on fossil fuels by 2020, ensuring zero carbon gas pollution in 2017 so that temperature does not rise more than 1 º C relative to 1850 levels and promote zero-emission community in climate balance by 2020, restructuring taxes on labor and capital.
* abolish global hunger through tax.
* abolish global hunger through tax financial transactions.
* ensure peace, culture, local food and goods, work, welfare and care for all.
* reduce soot and CO2 emissions in developed countries and developing countries by 2015 through activity fees.
* reduce our dependence on fossil fuels by 70% by 2020 and ensure zero carbon gas pollution in 2017 so that temperature does not rise more than 1 ° C relative to 1850 levels and promote zero-emission society in climate balance by 2020 by restructuring taxes on labor and capital.
* Prohibit the CO2-polluting speculative economy in 2012 by reducing the world's richest countries,DAC countries' 58.65 percent control of the World Bank in favor of sustainable development with the welfare and care for all nationally and globally.
* introduce a stability fee; a fee on financial institutions for guarantees given by the state.
* secure more than 70% of the houses, buildings and energy demands to be ensured through recycling energy by agriculture- desert- and oceanheating or other clean pollution-free energy by 2020.
* utilize 0.1% of the ocean's energy to provide clean energy for 15 billion people.
According to the United Nations` climate panel, IPCC, temperature has risen by 0.74 º C over the last hundred years.
Today, more than 90 countries have set their own goals, but greenhouse gas emissions are not stopped, and atmospheric CO2 concentration has reached about 40% above pre-industrial level. The world's emissions of soot and CO2 have passed the red line.
The right to peace, culture, climate balance, work, welfare and care for all should abolish poverty in 2012. A plan A for Mother Earth to eradicate poverty and ensure zero-emission society in the climate balance by 2020.
Zero tolerance for CO2 emissions from cars, planes, trains and boats by 2013. Car, plane, train, boating and shipping industry are dynamic industries that contribute to climate change. The organization the Northern Dimension must contribute so that the UN establishes rules, demands and adopts effective sanctions against climate crime.
Norway's efforts to globalize our Northern Dimension policies and solutions are important stimulus.
Results-oriented employees, managers, owners and politicians have long taken responsibility for the necessary business and social changes for zero emission community in the climate balance.
Climate Agreement between the red-green coalition and the right-wing parties in Norway are inadequate, and challenges require a result-oriented cooperation between the social partners, municipalities, the state and its citizens, regional and global networks.
During Norwegian leadership should Norway and the Nordic countries by their examples and results show the way to zero-emission society climate balance by 2020.
The 1000-year fire burned for peace, openness and solidarity, and the 1000-year cairn was erected for the goal of UN General Assembly.
Universal Declaration recommends the political parties in Norway to strengthen the United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef, the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Department of Economic and Social Development (Desa) by Norway`s proposals during the UN General Assembly to create 34 international conventions shall have precedence over national law:
1. Balanced global reduction of the military-related spending down to 0.5% of global GDP by 2015, to 0.0% of global GDP by 2020, to release funds for the UN Millennium Development Goals and climate goals.
2. Green solidarity tax with welfare, care and industrial policy set in a New Deal for Mother Earth. Green solidarity with Mother Earth in Norway implies redistribution and restructuring, including:
* Wealth Tax.
* Activity Tax in the financial industry.
* Reduction of shielding deduction for income.
* Local property taxes on homes and cottages with taxable value over NOK 2 million.
* Removing interest deduction from homes and cottages on amounts exceeding the tax value over NOK 2 million.
* Progressive taxation, where income over NOK 2 million accrues green solidarity fund for Mother Earth.
* Zero soot and CO2 pollution from cars, planes, boats, trains, power plants, government, consumers and all businesses by 2017.
* Phase out oil boilers and polluting wood stoves in households, public buildings and corporate houses on a national car scrapping of NOK 10 000, - to those who change the source of contamination.
* Ensure an open evaluation of all electronic data from military warfare in terms of human rights and the Geneva Conventions.
* A fair tax on wages and capital income, 100% fee on all fossil fuels and 100% tax on the company's oil and gas profits.
* 100% tax on all polluting industries and 5% tax on pure growth of clean technology until 2023.
* Profit prohibition on food production, education, welfare, care, housing, energy, industry and transport sector to benefit green investments.
* Investment growth in oil and gas industry must be reduced annually by NOK 100 billion from 2013 until 2023. This is accomplished by increasing the state's annual investment in railways to NOK 100 billion to establish high-speed solutions between cities by 2023.
* Reduce the temperature rise within the public and private sectors to stop global warming by decision of appropriate climate change legislation.
3. Ban on export of weapons and military equipment to warring countries, global ceasefire and peace agreements and prohibitions against war.
4. Global reductions by 75 % soot and CO2 emissions within 2015. The human-induced temperature rise should not exceed 1 ºC compared to 1850 levels and achieve zero carbon gas emissions in 2017 and zero-emission society in the climate balance within 2020.
5. Start dissolving the military alliances in 2012 by all-European, all-Asisan, all-African and all-Australian solutions to the benefit of the common and collective security nationally and globally in advance of the summit in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.
6. Eliminate all nuclear weapons and dismantle global state-funded military-finance-industrial complex by 2020.

15. Global redistribution of agricultural land to self-owning farmers, cooperative farmers or agricultural cooperatives.
16. UN green solidarity funds and global ban on serving more than 2 million Norwegian kroner a year to eliminate hunger and promote peace, and ensure by 2013 the earth`s 2.6 billion poor 1 billion unemployed labor, welfare and care and give proper housing for people in the slums.
17. Global care support to children, unemployed and disabled, as well as pensions to live on for all the elderly.
18. Secure 3% of GDP in all industrialized countries for UN green solidarity fund in a plan A for Mother Earth and poor developing countries, distributed by UN General Assembly.
19. Promote reversion of speculative capital in favor of the UN climate goals, and introduce a global financial tax of 2 per thousand of daily foreign exchange trading, designated UN`s Green climate and solidarity fund.
20. Introduce a global sales tax of 1.4% of world stock exchanges to curb the economic fluctuations in the global economy which create crises, and earmark 0.7% of national climate action and 0.7% of the UN green solidarity fund.

28. Use of synthetic gases is to be reduced by 100 % (HCFC gases - hydrofluorocarbons) in 2012 in developed countries and developing countries because they destroy the ozone layer.
29. Species diversity and sustainable development in all types of forests.
30. Biodiversity and efforts to combat desertification.
31. Ensure free access to information about human genetic material.
32. Adopt the necessary legislation to reduce the temperature rise in the public and private sector to stop global warming.
33. Solve the global environmental and poverty issues in an amount equal to the speculative activity on world stock exchanges, as the soot and CO2-polluting commercial states financial institutions have given to the richest.
34. Help all refugees from climate change, natural disasters and wars.
35. Extend the responsibility of the International Criminal Court for war crimes against humanity. It must also be an international tribunal for work, climate and poverty crimes. Violations of ILO conventions, human rights conventions and climate records, as well as economic crimes and plundering of the UN countries` fortunes to be considered by the ICC from the adopted international conventions.
An environmentally friendly transport infrastructure will also be an important part of our Nordic Dimension and the environment-and climate-related turnaround.
The Universal Declaration is committed to democratize and secure the rights of the United Nations system through the adoption of the UN General Assembly.
A World Parliament based on number of people per state should be the UN`s democratic assembly. Each state represents a constituency. To be established a nation's UN-chamber with elected representatives from member countries' self-governing territories and a UN chamber with elected representatives of all indigenous peoples.
Universal Declaration recommends that all nuclear powers or countries in military alliances that do not remove nuclear deterrence in relation to countries that have acceded to the Non-Proliferation Treaty of Nuclear Weapons, NPT or submits plans to eliminate:
1. All nuclear weapons. 2. The military-finance/industrial complex. 3. Poverty and promote zero-emission society in climate balance by 2020, will be removed from the UN Security Council by the UN General Assembly.
No effort should be spared to protect the vulnerable, protect children and others who suffer.
Universal Declaration requires that the UN member states currently grant of NOK 6000 billion to the world's war production must be earmarked UN green solidarity fund.
Our millennium should not be plagued by man-made famine, natural and nuclear disasters, genocide or armed conflicts. Earth's people must be assured all possible assistance and protection.
Universal Declaration breaks with the old world mercantile mindset so that we all - as soon as possible - will be able to return to normal life.
