Denmark wants to empty the North Sea for oil
The government will not let a single drop of Danish oil remain under the seabed, said Denmark's climate minister.

This despite the fact that Denmark has set a goal to be completely oil-independant by 2050, writes the Danish newspaper Politiken.

- We pump up as much as possible from the North Sea, but it's not to export it. It's all for our own consumption, says climate minister Rasmus Petersen, from the party Radical Left.

The Danish government, along with the main oil companies in the North Sea, recently allocated 1 billion DKK, over the next 10 years to be used to develop methods that can pump even more oil from the Danish ground.

The UN climate panel has otherwise established that the majority of known oil reserves, coal and gas have to remain in the ground, or the global temperature rise will have no chance of staying below two degrees.
