“Our world, as we know it, developed with a climate which has been stable for 10 000 years.
Over the past 150 years, human use of fossil energy has caused climate changes which are altering the living conditions for people, animals and plants.
To halt these processes, we must gear up for an energy revolution – and we must all be ready for major changes.”
This is what our new exhibition Climate for change is all about. It tells the story of how energy has changees societies during history and how energy supplies are crucual for the functining of our society today.
80 per cent fossil fuel
The worlds energy consumption has risen dramaticly the last decades – which is good for developement in many parts of the world, but it has been bad for climate. 80 per cent of the energy comes from fossiel sources as coal, oil and gas which causes climate gas emissions.
The message from the UN’s intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) is clar: The global temperature has risen by 1°C over the past 150 years. Most of this increase has happened in the past three decades.
Changes must come
To stop global warming, changes have to come. The new exhibition Climate for change discusses changes in the free market, in international collaboration, technological changes and changes for Norway. And in the end the exhibition focus on changes that concerns us all.
