In today's Aftenposten (Norway's biggest daily), members of parliament (the Conservatives) Siri A. Meling and Kristin Vinje responds to my chronicle "Hva slags forskning er etisk forsvarlig?" [What kind(s) of research is ethically justifiable?], which was published Monday December 2nd, with a Letter to the editor entitled «Uten petroleumsforskning stopper Norge» [Without petroleum research, Norway stops]. The two parliamentarians claim that petroleum research is not problematic in ethical terms, and that the petroleum sector benefits both the poor and the (Norwegian) rich.
