Climate alarmists in Norway apprehended after failed attempt to vandalize another classic work of art
By Arsenio Toledo // Nov 16, 2022

Two climate alarmists in Norway were detained on Friday, Nov. 11, after a failed attempt to vandalize Edvard Munch's 1893 masterpiece "The Scream" at an Oslo museum.

Oslo police said they were alerted by the National Museum of Norway regarding the incident. It involved two people who attempted to glue themselves to the painting and a third person who wanted to film them.

Videos of the incident show the two individuals attempting to glue themselves to the glass frame while one of them shouted "I scream for people dying," and the other shouted "I scream when lawmakers ignore science."

Fortunately, "The Scream" was encased in protective glass and the painting itself was unharmed. But glue residue was left on the glass mount.

The individuals claimed that they are part of Norwegian climate activist group "Stopp Oljeletinga," which stands for Stop Oil Exploration. They said they "wanted to pressure lawmakers into stopping oil exploration."

"We are campaigning against "The Scream" because it is perhaps Norway's most famous painting," said Astrid Rem, the climate group's spokesperson. "There have been lots of similar actions around Europe. They have managed something that no other action has managed: achieve an extremely large amount of coverage and press."

Norway is a major producer and exporter of oil and gas. Revenues from the petroleum sector contribute to a massive part of the country's wealth and the taxes the government gets from these revenues contribute to the country's high standard of living.

As of 2022, oil and gas revenues make up 33 percent of Norway's GDP, 49 percent of all state revenues, 17 percent of the state's investments and 64 percent of the country's exports. Ceasing all oil and gas activity would result in the economic collapse of Norway.

Vandalism attempt just the latest in series of incidents involving precious paintings

Environmental activists from organizations like Stopp Oljeletinga in Norway and Just Stop Oil in the United Kingdom have been targeting famous paintings in museums all over Europe.

Their goal, as Rem of Stopp Oljeletinga noted, is to garner a large amount of coverage regarding the vandalism incidents and draw more attention to their climate activism in the process.

In late October, activists from Letzte Generation (Last Generation) in Germany hurled mashed potatoes at a painting by French artist Claude Monet in Potsdam Museum.

"We make this #Monet the state and the public the audience," the group wrote on its Twitter account. "If it takes a painting – with #MashedPotatoes or #TomatoSoup thrown at it – to make society remember that the fossil fuel course is killing us all: Then we'll give you #MashedPotatoes on a painting!"

Also in October, activists in Belgium targeted Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" in the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, Netherlands. The Belgian activists were immediately sentenced to two months in prison following the incident.

Earlier this month, a similar climate activism group in Spain went to the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid and attempted to glue their hands to several paintings by Francisco de Goya.

The Spanish activists glued their hands to paintings while one of them spray painted "+1.5 C" on the museum's wall. This is a reference to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's claim that a global temperature increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) would cause irreparable damage to the environment.

Most of the priceless works of art targeted by the vandals are kept behind protective glass cases and are unharmed. The "Girl with a Pearl Earring" was put back on display a day after the attempted vandalism.
