  1. Nice that some Norwegians care about this case, even if you omit a lot of information. I myself have followed this case, among other things, through Democracy now! The only new thing for me in this article is that dnb has invested in the parent company, but when it comes to oil activities, Norwegians are double-minded, and ignorant in relation to the consequences of fossil fuels.
