Transcript of Norway Ahead
By: Mike Hepso
Oil exploration began in 1966, but the first well drilled was not successful. Three years later, on December 23, 1969, workers on a drilling rig smelled oil. This breakthrough led to further oil discoveries, and, by the mid-1970s, a gas pipeline had been laid across the North Sea to Teesside, England. Production became so great that Norway started exporting oil to Germany and Scotland. By the mid-1990s, Norway had become the world's second largest exporter of oil, with about half the country's export earnings and one-tenth of its government revenues coming from oil and gas. High rates of oil production can be sustained at least until 2020.

A Very Special Day!
For Norwegian children, May 17th is a day filled with games, food, and parades. For adults, it is an important date in history and an opportunity to show pride in their nation. Throughout the day, bands plays the national anthem, and Norwegians wear their beautifully embroidered
(BOO-nad-der) to the street parades.
The actual events of the day vary from town to town, but the festivities usually begin with a flag-raising ceremony at a local school, church, or government building. Afterward, a children's parade starts, with the children waving their Norwegian flags to the cheering crowd of onlookers.
After the children's parade, each community starts it's own celebrations, which may include speeches, games, contests, food, and concerts. It is common for several parties to combine into one large celebration at the center of a town or city.
On the afternoon of May 17th , the citizens parade begins. In the past, only adults took part, but children now participate as well. Girl scouts , soccer teams, and religious groups are all represented in the parade.
Some Environmental Problems.......
(Thanks for Your Time!)
Takk for din tid!
Prezi by Susan Hanson
The chief environmental issue facing Norway's lakes and rivers is acid rain. Acid rain is rain that contains high concentrations of sulfuric and nitric acids, which are produced by air pollution. Fish mortality as a result of acid rain is not a new phenomenon. Fish stocks were already probably already dying in the early 1900s, but it was not until the 1950s and 1960s that people realized that the depletion was caused by acid rain.
Norway is a book load of fun!
