Finland’s forest-based sector production and its exports have declined over the past decade. At the beginning of the 1980s the total value added in forestry, wood products industries and pulp and paper industries represented 10% of the Finnish gross domestic product (GDP); in 2008 it was less than 5%. Metla’s analysts predict that the Finnish pulp and paper industry production will decrease by up to a third and the wood processing production by a fifth during the period from 2007 to 2020. This declining trend is seen as coming mainly from the current worldwide economic market depression, the weakening of ...
Pollution In The Pacific Ocean Creates Plastic And Rubber Island ...
In fact, it already exists in the Pacific Ocean and a recent Parliamentary report by Danish MEP Anna Rosbach (EFD) has thrown light on this disturbing and growing problem. On 11 March MEPs backed her report fighting pollution in the North East Atlantic. When she spoke to us she drew attention to the risks of the “plastic soup” phenomenon and the threats to the Baltic Sea region. We began by asking why these issues are important to her. You know, for me, water is the most important thing. Without water, there would be no life on earth. And if we pollute the water too much, we’ll have serious problems.

Finland for Thought » …and now a break for some Finnish beauty ...
As an American living in Finland, I started this blog six years ago to address the political and cultural issues in Finland and the United States - but lately this blog is just a place for me to make fun of Finns and Americans. :-) Find out more about me from my personal or professional sites.

Finland once had a lot of bogs in the past, but many of them have been drained off to make way for farm land. Torronsuo, however, has been preserved and recently made into a national park. Here are some pictures: Sundew plants . This is a ... market research, surveys and trends

HELSINKI, March 4 (Reuters) - Finnish port workers went on strike on Thursday over a new wage deal, halting the flow of goods in and out of the country and forcing key exporters to suspend production at some plants.

Why Finnish Paper Mills Became Electric Utilities
On my recent tour of Finnish greentech, I found that a simple law on the books for decades helps account for the incredibly low carbon footprint of Finns, who look just as energy-intensive as Americans, but register at half our weight on this fragile planet. Finns get almost one third of their electricity second-hand, after industrial users have had first dibs at it.  Vesa Koivisto of Fortum (the largest utility in Finland) told me that paper mills actually supply about one third of the electricity on the grid. Why? Heavy industries are allowed to produce and sell electricity, any way they can make it. Since heavy ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
