This week’s illustration comes from my dear friend Francesco Poroli .
The unique ecosystems of the Lofoten islands, in the Norwegian Arctic, are safe from oil. Thanks to the vote of the Labour Party against new explorations in the area, oil could soon be banned permanently.
One of the world’s main fossil fuels producers is falling out of love with oil. It’s Norway, which has just taken a step forward towards the protection of the Arctic waters of the Lofoten, Vesteralen and Senja islands, one of the country’s areas remained untouched by extraction activities and home to unique ecosystems.
More than 50,000 people joined the #OilFreeLoften movement and signed the petition calling on the government to keep fossil fuels out of the archipelago.
