Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, and the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-An... tarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the Kingdom included the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland.Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres and a population of 5,109,059 people. The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden. Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak Strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.King Harald V of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg is the current monarch of Norway. Erna Solberg became Prime Minister in 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg. A constitutional monarchy since 1814, state power is divided between the Parliament, the King and his Council, and the Supreme Court   more

Both: They should prepare for it and try to prevent the climate getting even hotter.

Agreeing with Lukas8, they should do both. Climate change already is inevitable. However, action should also be taken to prevent it from getting much worse.

They should prepare. We don't know what earth is gonna throw at us. Global warming can't be stopped unless we shot the sun climate lower.(but that would lead to extreme freezing) Just take the dinosaurs, you didn't see them stop the meteor. Why? Because they couldn't. Earth forces cannot be controlled by anything, except for earth itself, not even the most successful species can change it. (Unless they evolve for more than five hundred million years, which we will problem already be colonizing other planets.)
