油& Energy Minister Ola Borten 萌 上周陷入更多麻烦 当他告诉加拿大一家主要报纸时， 地球& Mail, that 油 from the 油 /tar sands projects in northern Alberta is necessary to meet world energy needs. 萌 also criticized EU proposals to keep 油 from the projects from entering the EU, because of the 环境al damage they can cause.
萌’的评论，这是挪威一连串有争议的言论中的最新内容’新任石油部长立即发起抗议活动，不仅来自反对挪威国家石油公司（Statoil）的环保主义者’s involvement in the Canadian 油 sands projects but also from 萌’s colleagues in the Norwegian 政府 and from within his own small Center Party. They were quick to point out that the 政府 has not taken a position on the EU proposal, while fellow 政府 minister Erik Solheim flat out said he disagreed with 萌’s conclusions.
Even 萌’自己党的同事Erling Sande告诉记者，他认为有必要指出“puts much more weight on renewable sources of energy than 萌 does.”
萌 seemed once again to simply shake off all the criticism directed at him. He told newspaper 达根斯·纳林斯利夫（DN） 政府部长们的不同意见并不是什么新鲜事，他几乎嘲笑了贝洛纳，地球之友和世界自然基金会等环境组织的激烈言论。贝罗纳’s leader, Frederic Hauge, has said 萌 wants to boil the earth, and that his visions will lead to millions of people dying and forced off their lands.
To which 萌 calmly replied that he thinks it would be good for Hauge and many others to visit the 油 sands projects like he has. “I’我已经注册了豪格喜欢对我大喊，” 萌 told DN. “I don’t take it very hard.” While in Ottawa, 萌 met with his Canadian counterpart Joe Oliver and they signed a 合作宣言 （外部链接） 石油开采，碳捕获和可再生能源领域，以及对其保护责任的认可“北极生态系统的独特性。”
萌 conceded that the Norwegian 政府 has not discussed the EU proposal yet, nor has his own ministry studied the issue in detail or formed any conclusions. He wouldn’t say what’是他自己的结论或谁的结论’s been listening to. 萌 did indicate he was impressed by Statoil ’的油砂作业，声称它没有’撕毁了土地“非常干净，非常有序，无排放。”
Most importantly, 萌 repeated, is that enormous resources are needed to cover world needs, including 油 from the 油 /tar sands. The high tempo of offshore 油 exploration isn’尽管本周有报道称今年挪威将钻探约50-55口油井，但其中的一些油井，如Aldous / Avaldsnes，已被证明拥有挪威有史以来最大的石油发现。他还认为Statoil是“积极贡献”从砂中提取石油的发展。
他的评论家远远不满意。而贝罗纳’s Hauge doesn’t even want to talk to 萌 any longer, others actually have visited the 油 sands and utterly disagree with 萌’的结论。其中包括环保组织Zero的Kari Elisabeth Kaski。
She told DN that 萌’s starting point is “completely wrong”相反，世界需要更多的可再生能源和更低的排放量来减少气候变化。卡斯基（Kaski）声称油砂产量的增加只会使可再生能源的盈利变得更加困难。
