News article in Forskerforum on NENT's petroleum research statement

The Norwegian research journal Forskerforum has today, on its online edition, published an article entitled "Må legge oljeforskning på vekta" [/Must consider petroleum research more closely/], in relation to the statement released today by Norway's National Committee for Research Ethics in Science and Technology (NENT) on the research ethics of petroleum research in light of climate change. The article includes a link to the previous article "Strid om oljeforsking" [Conflict on oil research], published in December, where I am interviewed.

In today's news article, NENT committee leader Øyvind Mikkelsen says that if research activities [in petroleum research] prevents Norway from achieving official climate change goals which the country has committed to, this is indefensible.
