Deforestation, wells, most likely.
No, neither of those are suspects in the case. The root cause is most likely quick clay, which is pretty common in the Alta area, but really not something you want to build your house on, especially if on a slope. Additionally, the ground was unusually saturated with water from rain and snow melt. Locals had reported smaller slides and concerns about the excess wetness to the water and power authority a few days earlier, but they decided not to follow up at the time.

There are some 15,000 people engaged in a Floyd memorial/ Black Lives Matter demonstration outside the Norwegian parliament (Stortinget) at the moment. Video footage suggests a significant minority to be unmasked. Hopefully not too many Swedes there.

Will Noway pull down statues of their slave-trading Viking heroes?

There are statues? I’m not even sure who, if anybody, would be considered a Viking hero, but I have missed a couple of recent tv series. Besides, weren’t the slaves mostly Irish anyway?

discussion now one have to take down a oil painting from 1800 town hall Bergen, because racist. But how can it be that paintings from 1800 not should be seen in simply a historical context, views and attitudes changes over time ?  Justita

Should we not also burn all books that we know have some flawed science views relative to todays view. 

We  should clearly remove all pictures and statues of men living in the 1800 also, as almost all of them had a non proper view on women voting rights. I am sure u all agree! 

World is getting closer and closer to chaos!

In Poland it was easy, because the majority was against the communist regime: all the "heroes" were removed from public spaces and closed in museums, where the light is better. People happy, history happy.

Или это было "И волки сыты, и овцы целы"...

Someone had to do the work.

Hang on! That’s a bit of a bait and switch. While Leif may have been Norwegian, Norway has not exercised real control over Iceland since the beginning of the Kalmar Union, around 1400 CE.

I have never heard a Icelander saying anything bad about Norwegians.

Unified States of America has just teared down and vandalized a statue of a Norwegian-American ( Hans Christian Heg ) in Madison i Wisconsin.

https://www.nbc15.com/2020/06/24/protesters-topple-forward-statue-and-heg-statue/

"It was pulled down by demonstrators on June 23, 2020 and rolled into nearby Lake Monona" (actually they departed his head from his body and was throwing the head in the river, the body also?)

https://eu.jsonline.com/story/news/2020/06/24/madison-protesters-pull-down-forward-hans-christian-heg-statues-attack-senator-sculptures-in-lake/3247948001/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Christian_Heg

"He was an outspoken anti-slavery activist " (but Republican)


Norwegian priest statue on Greenland also attacked.

Why not remove all statues and burn alls books, and change name of all towns and universities that are named or have their name after someone that had viewes back then that do not fit todays average view. So almost everything by persons born before 2000.... should be removed?
