“It’s hard in Norway, and this may be because we get so much of our national money from oil and gas. There’s an expression; never expect a man to understand something when his salary depends on him not understanding”
Norwegian Green Party politician Kristoffer Robin takes Julian through where Green Politics is at this moment in time, and where he thinks it is pointing. Having grown from scientists who have seen and fully understood the situation we are in as a species, and as a planet, Green parties have often leaned towards alarmism. However in this conversation Kristoffer talks passionately about how green politics is also the politics of compassion, and one which is planning for a better future for humans, rather than for the stock market.
