On the inside of Norway’s first climate trial

Does Norway have a legal protection against the destruction of the basis of society?

Where is the line between law and politics?

Is the record-high trust Norwegians have towards their state justified in light of an escalating climate crisis?

Norway contributes to this as the world’s seventh largest exporter of CO2. The climate lawsuit raises important questions about whether future generations and nature have a legal protection in Norway.
