Norway Activists Take Fight on Arctic Oil Drilling to European Court

  • Environmental groups lost their case in Norway’s Supreme Court
  • They will file application at European Court of Human Rights

Climate activists that failed in their attempt to stop oil and gas drilling in Norway’s Arctic are taking the case to the European Court of Human Rights.

Two major environmental organizations, along with six young climate activists, will file an application to the court, arguing that allowing new oil drilling during a climate crisis breaches fundamental human rights.
