New Prime Minister of Finland, Juha Sipilä aims to finish the Ministry of the Environment. Environmental issues would be relocated to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and then it would be renamed as the Ministry of Natural Resources. At the same time the resources for the environmental supervision would be scaled down radically. The model for this comes straight from Putin’s Russia.
The result of this would be very much like the fox guarding the chicken coop.
The opposition parties have been against the idea of dumping the Ministry of the Environment. Three conservative parties, which negotiate about the Government Programme refuse to comment the issue. Environmental organizations campaign to save the Ministry.
To save the climate, we have to leave about 80% of the known fossil fuel reserves, coal, oil, gas and peat, unused.
