There is a big concern for environment here too.
The north sea provides oil and gas, this makes Norway a very very rich country,
and pressure on environment gets higher though consumption habits, road
construction and industrial wastage.
The climate implies high energy consuming, because everything is though
through the consumption model: e.g. people eat tomatoes and cucumbers all
year round though they would hardly grow in the summer on freeland, except
the tomatoes are grown in energy/chemicals intensive greenhouses i Holland,
and Norway in the summer, and they do not taste anything...
That's where permaculture design gives inspiration to alternative and
integrated food production and energy saving solutions, and it works.
There is luckylly very little diseases because of the cold climate.
