Norwegian protesters say it with balloons
by UPI

OSLO, Norway - The Norwegian environment minister received approximately 16,000 balloons signed by protesters objecting to the country's "inflated" environmental politics.

Jens Aas-Hansen, of the organization Changemaker, said the more than 20,000 protesters who signed the balloons are calling on the Norwegian government to cut emissions "by at least 2 million tons before the Kyoto agreement expires," Aftenposten reported Tuesday.

Environment Minister Helen Bjornoy thanked the protesters for their opinions and said she is planning a government position paper on the environment and climate change that would include national emissions cuts.

Technological development has failed to cut emissions in Norway due to the country's large oil and gas industry.
