Gold mining has become a player in the ongoing destruction of Earth’s climate. It is estimated that 75000 tons of CO2 are released into the atmosphere for every ton of mined gold. That means that the 3236 tons mined in 2016, released 242,7 million tons of CO2. The total CO2 emissions on Norwegian territory were 53,9 million tons in 2016.
