In Denmark, three attempts to stop the construction of the Baltic Pipe have already failed. It is clear to everyone who is trying so hard to prevent the diversification of the gas market in Europe.
The opposition to the Baltic Pipe, a gas pipeline that will transmit Norwegian gas via Denmark to Poland, has taken various forms, but its scale has been too small to impact the project’s progression.
First, local farmers were used, through whose land the ground part of the pipeline should pass, then pseudo-environmental activists who tried to hinder the progress of construction, and finally a petition was initiated to the Danish Parliament, which fortunately did not gain the necessary support.
Legislation initiated by the investment’s opponents, who claimed it should be stopped for social and environmental reasons, could have been a serious hindrance. However, their initiative to introduce a bill that would block the Baltic Pipe failed.
