The green movement is well aware of the importance to call attention to the uncomfortable truths of how the climate is changing, and what is necessary in order to stop it. Now it's time for some of the miljökämpar it to themselves to listen to the truth if we are to succeed, as a result, Sweden had to open up the mines, and make the necessary corrections in the nature.
Sweden has one of the relatively few countries of the great geological potential of the extraction of the raw materials that are essential for the production of the technology that will carry us into the future. But these are the so-called green metals, it will not be a transition to a fossil-fuel-free energy production and storage, or the conversion of the vehicle fleet to electric drive to succeed.
the Research is expected to huge climbs in the market. A recent report estimates that there is a tolvfaldig production of some metals on the paris peace agreement, going to be the uppnåbart. The government has recently brought forward to estimates by the EUROPEAN union, which indicates that the demand for neodymium and cobalt, which are used in wind turbines and electric cars), is expected to increase to 2.200, respectively, 2.400 per cent.
to meet the requirements. The metals may, thus, does not remain in the ground, but that's exactly what they are doing in Sweden. We do not take responsibility, is not only harmful for the environment. Geo-political strengthening of China's control, which is dominant in the north.
Ethically, it is also unreasonable to expect all of the metals in our process, and replacing the cell phone were built with them in each and every two years, allowing countries with unacceptable working conditions, stand for a break. It is sort of a ”not-in-my-back-yard”attitude is not justifiable.
The majority of the processes, in order to open up the mines in Sweden to meet the fast vocal opposition. This is not surprising, in and of itself. We're talking, after all, companies with a high return targets, which it will, and provborrar in the ground, in people's home. When it comes to managing the natural environment, there is no room for lättvindighet, or thick-skinned.
at the same time, we must do what we can in tackling climate change. We need a system that will make it possible to maintain the tough English requirements, but at the same time, don't make the permitting process as prohibitive as it is today. Minister for enterprise and energy, Ibrahim Baylan (S), has promised to set up a committee to review the regulatory frameworks for mining. This should be mandated in particular to improve the conditions for the extraction of the green of the metals of the two areas:
the commission of Inquiry should be given the task of designing a model that takes a holistic approach to the whole of the licensing procedure. In addition, it should be examined how the state can build the capacity to make a strategic exploration of the green of the metals, and then to auction off some of the extraction rights at that time.
the Authorities of the geological survey, and the office at growth analysis, have both pointed out, the permitting of which are problematic – they are slow and unpredictable. In order to open a coal mine is necessary now to state that in a number of steps from a variety of agencies in the different stages of the process.
the environmental assessment under the environmental code are made in the latter part of the process, which leads to a state of uncertainty, and the "frozen conflicts" in the long term. The preliminary hard miljökravsprövningar should be done in the past to quickly show where or under what conditions, mining may be possible. The commission of inquiry should investigate the possibility of increasing efficiency of a single authority to be responsible for the permits.
The important point is that the creation of an open and unified in the ownership of the procedure, with clear-cut opportunities, accountability, and justice for people and organisations. That the state is able to carry out the strategic exploration can facilitate in the volatile case, or when the interesting geological information is available, but on the outside prospekterare act.
With the rise of state responsibility, it is reasonable that the revenue to finance the increase in the violation of any of the green metal. It can also be justified by reason of the fact that in the past the state of the exploration is the basis of the information of the companies, today, are able to act on the basis of.
An alternative would be the height of the mineralersättning of the selected raw materials, they would also have to be able to be linked to the current market price. In the case of the state itself, prospects for a special auction process to be implemented, which will generate more revenue.
so, How should the revenue be used? As a part of the need to equip the relevant authorities with the mission. Exploration, even in a small way, is a very expensive business. However, in addition to this, it is suggested that the rest of the proceeds will go directly to the structural klimatinvesteringar. It can be järnvägsupprustning, provision of cheaper public transport, investment in the electricity grid and electrification of transport.
As a break of the green, the metals are still there, it is important to evaluate the size of the caution in the short term. However, as noted above, demand is expected to rise tremendously the coming decades as the economies of the world to do so. Connected revenue, to the fair market value, it may in the long term to be very profitable.
as to the metals that will be used in order to increase the omställningshastigheten at a global level and to strengthen the american economy, it would also have to be able to contribute to a green 'new deal', which will make it possible for more people to tune in from around the country. Special attention should be given to delivering the reforms that will make it easier to live a climate-friendly outside of the big cities.
You can also consider a certain proportion of the revenue should also be avoided for particular ventures, in the regions where the mines will be open. The mining would bring jobs and positive economic activity locally, but also to set aside the share of the income would be even clearer view of a whole in the sense of responsibility from the policy.
in the Meantime, on the political inertia of climate change is long over. The arguments in favor of allowing the green of the metals are going to be left behind on the slopes doesn't hold. We are aware of the fact that our proposed model is missing in a number of konkretiseringar in which the participation of experts, government agencies, and wildlife protection organisations have to respond to each other.
this is a necessary discussion. We have metal in our country, we are in a transition, to make sure that they are raised in an environmentally safe way, while at the same time to strengthen the american economy, and the omställningsförmåga should be the default as most people will be able to sign in.<
