THE SHOOTER:

- Town Office, Hanne speaking.

- I'm calling about my postal vote.

- Social security number, please?

- 271166-1883.

One moment, please.

This election is important,

don't you agree?

- Yes. Your vote has been registered.

- Great. Thanks.

The climate change in recent years

has made an impression on Danes.

The opposition is thundering ahead...

...a 50% increase in oil prices.

Denmark must drill for oil in the sea,

or Greenland will look elsewhere...

And now on to a hot subject

during this election.

The oil drillings in Greenland. Should

or shouldn't we drill for oil there?

Yes or no?

Becoming independent of oil is the

greatest issue our generation faces.

What are we talking about?

The survival of our planet.

A reduced demand for oil isn't enough.

We must reduce the exploration.

We won't allow Danish state companies

to drill for oil. That's for sure.

The voters have spoken:

Martin Felding is to form Denmark's

new green cabinet and may become PM.

We'll release the roster on Tuesday.

Are you the new climate

and energy minister?

I'm very passionate about climate

issues, but let's wait and see.

- Thomas Borby, our new foreign minister?

- I can't comment on that.

Welcome, Mia Moesgaard, political

commentator with the Morning Paper.

Your comments

on the new government?

It'll be interesting to see...

...if they can live up to the

climate policy that got them elected.

7 MONTHS LATER

- Watching the news?

- I'm on my way up.

Turn on your TV.

We have reached an agreement today

between the Danish government...

...Greenland and the oil industry.

Negotiations have taken place

behind closed doors...

...and come as a surprise to both

Danish and American commentators.

The deal includes

a consortium and a climate fund.

The consortium, made up of Denmark,

the US and Greenland, will be drilling...

...in North Greenland close to Station

North, Denmark's northern-most base.

But Foreign Minister Thomas Borby is

more excited about the climate fund.

Means derived from the oil profits

will be set aside for a fund...

...to protect the environment.

Getting the US to commit to a green deal

makes me one happy foreign minister.

The deal will make Denmark less

dependent on unstable oil states...

...and create more jobs, according

to the government's press release.

A trilateral treaty will be ratified

on Friday in Copenhagen.

The American foreign minister will stop

in Copenhagen on her European tour...

...to throw light on the deal.

MONDAY:

Denmark is dependent

on military alliances in the Arctic.

Only we saw this coming.

Mia did the research, and

she should have a go at the minister.

- When is she leaving?

- Tomorrow.

But this is going to be a hot topic

until they ratify the treaty on Friday.

- I'm leaving tomorrow.

- Guess you'll bring the kid round?

- You like kids?

- Sure.

This is the worst time possible.

DR wants you on Deadline.

I need you. You're the best. It's all

about the government's flip flop.

It's a debate with Thomas Borby.

Give him hell.

Ask him why they lied.

- I have to pack.

- I'll pack your suitcase for you.

It's not such a bad thing

to leave packing a victory.

Mia...

I'll do it.

- Here you go.

- Thanks.

- You're on maternity leave now.

- I have to get used to that phrase.

- Have you had time to prepare?

- I've done my best.

So you're ready?

Well, I've packed 36 boxes of formula.

Toys, baby clothes and some gifts

for the women at the orphanage.

I just got off the phone with them.

They're ready for you.

You have a court appointment there on
