Scientists in Nordic Region Call on Governments To Act against Global Warming

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A report commissioned by the Nordic Council of Ministers on Friday urged the region's governments to take joint action against global warming.


Throughout the Nordic region, scientists have noted signs of warming, including an earlier start to the pollen season in the spring, more butterfly species from southern Europe, and fish normally found in tropical waters.


Experts from environmental research institutes in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Denmark, said the climate changes mainly were caused by man, especially by emissions of so-called greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere.


Temperatures will continue to rise and weather will become more extreme, the 64-page document said.


The Nordic Council of Ministers, formed in 1971, is the forum for cooperation between the Nordic governments.
