“They’re damaging Norway's reputation,” says the global activist organisation.
5,200 people had signed the petition by 14:00 (+1 GMT) this afternoon, Tuesday, calling on Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to stop Statoil’s investments in the tar sands project immediately.
“The tar sands are among the dirtiest and most carbon-intensive fuels known, and this investment of public funds does untold damage to Norway's international climate reputation,” members write.
They aim to collect 20,000 electronic signatures. These will be sent to the media when they reach 10,000.

The campaign is timed accordingly to fit in with Jens Stoltenberg's visit to the UN Climate Summit in Rio de Janeiro next week.
“Norwegian giant Statoil is a major player in the Canadian tar sands, one of the dirtiest and most carbon-intensive fuels known.” [...] “It would be a death sentence for the planet,” says Avaaz, pointing out that the Norwegian state and government have the power to change Statoil’s direction.
"If we can stop this crucial Norwegian investment now, we can start defeating the tar sands at the source," the petition reads.
