Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre says the Norwegian government has tightened its climate goals and promises to cut emissions by 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. The government pledged to support investments that help to phase out coal and other fossil sources of energy. What progress has been made?

In Net Zero Speaks with Kim Holmén, climate activist Ved Sanyal interviews Kim Holmén, the Senior Advisor to the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø, Norway. “ The sea ice is much thinner,'' says Holmén. “Many of the species that depended on ice are struggling and even vanishing. I think Net Zero is a mesh of short term and long term solutions. There is a future for us if we join forces and work together.”

Kim is also a Professor in environment and climate at UiT The Arctic University of Norway and an expert in the fields of human induced climate change and biogeochemical cycles.
