Global Warming predictions - Wikipedia Norway intends to invite American politicians in Svalbard to observe the effects of global warming in Arctic, said in December the norwegian Foreign Minister.

"Our experience is that it has a good effect to invite decision-makers and give them the opportunity to see the effects of global warming themselves" declared Jonas Gahr Stoere.

Stoere points out that Norway chairs the Arctic Council for the period 2006-2008 and that polar regions are experiencing climate change more intensely than other areas in the world. The Foreign Minister said that the world needs that the United States imply themselves in the efforts to reduce the global warming, even if they did not ratify the Kyoto protocol.
