GLASGOW Prime Minister (VG) Jonas Gahr Støre (Labour) gives full support to Bellona leader Frederic Hauge in the environmental movement’s dispute over whether catching and storing CO₂ is a good thing. But Store also says tough climate choices will have to be made going forward.
There is no reliable climate projection that shows there is a way to achieve the goal, without capturing, storing and using CO2, Store tells VG.
The last Norwegian prime minister is now in place at the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow. Monday morning read VG article on internal conflict in the climate and environmental movement regarding carbon dioxide capture and storageThe international acronym for carbon capture and storage.
“I want to agree with Friedrich Hauge,” says Stoer.
– It is critical to succeed with it, and this government fully agrees with Solberg’s in wanting that “Langskip” should succeed. He says working with the European Union to make our stock available is an important strategy.
The cost of the Norwegian “Longship” carbon dioxide management project, launched by the Solberg government in the fall of 2020, is estimated to be approximately NOK 20 billion.
Can the debate about carbon dioxide capture and storage as a debate about onshore wind turbines end so that the resistance becomes too much?
All these discussions must be balanced. Considerations must be balanced. On the way to Glasgow from the airport you see these wonderful breeding areas, where you also see windmills as a new feature. If we are to succeed in a regenerated society, we must stand in some difficult debates. He says that believing that they will be pain-free is the misconception.
Støre on his way to Climate Summit: announces $1 billion investment
fear of failure
Storre is coming to the climate summit in Scotland where the British government already fears it will fail.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said there was a 60 per cent chance of the climate summit returning home within two weeks with binding plans to have a 1.5 degree target within reach.
40% chance that the target disappears out of sight, ie.
After meeting the world’s 20 largest economies in Rome this weekend, Johnson took a pessimistic tone:
“The pledges so far are a drop in a rapidly warming ocean,” the British prime minister said before leaving Rome on Sunday night.

We come here with the position that we will do what we can, positively, on the Norwegian side of this conference to achieve results. I said that to both Boris Johnson earlier today, and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last night, says Store.
Coincidentally, Stoer was sitting in the same row and a seat next to the UN Secretary-General on the plane from Amsterdam to Glasgow. Thus, they got about an hour undisturbed next to each other.

something won’t come
In Glasgow, there will be more than 100 heads of state and government. But it also lacks prominent leaders such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
China alone will be responsible for about 30 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. The state’s stated plan is to reach net zero emissions by 2060, but they must increase emissions over the next 10 years. The United Nations has asked countries to cut it in half by 2030.
In Rome, it was apparent that only 12 of the world’s 20 largest countries had committed to zero emissions by 2050, according to the British newspaper The Guardian.
Countries like — China, India and Indonesia will be critical to whether we reach the climate goals, Store tells VG.
He acknowledges that there is a limit to what Norway can do in Glasgow, but believes that government negotiators have some unique advantages:
After all, Norway has the core competence in capturing and storing carbon dioxide, blue hydrogen, and solid and floating offshore winds, which can help make a difference there too, says the Norwegian prime minister.

According to the Guardian, Johnson is accused of playing domestic political games around the climate summit.
Labor accuses the British Conservative Prime Minister of setting a pessimistic tone in order to deliver a modest result in two weeks, as a victory.
That Boris Johnson downplays expectations is not unusual for the host, says Jonas Gahr Store.
