Palatial cabins an environmental threat?

Norwegian Environment Minister Siri Bjerke said she is worried the rich will take over the Norwegian mountains with palatial holiday "cabins" that ruin natural landscapes and consume too much energy. One measure she is considering to stop the invasion is a limit on cabin size. The Norwegian Mountain Touring Association was pleased with the minister’s comments. Local officials whose municipalities are dependent on the rich vacationers for economic activity were less enthused.
