Britain ordered to reduce its air pollution by the European Court of Justice and threatened with a £300million fine for not complying

Post  wyatt1 on Wed Nov 19, 2014 8:57 pm

Ministers must urgently tackle Britain’s abysmal air pollution, the European Court of Justice ruled yesterday.
The UK has repeatedly failed to meet clean air targets, leaving most of our cities clogged with pollution that is estimated to kill 29,000 people a year.
The European court yesterday found that the UK was in breach of EU law and should have created plans to tackle air pollution in 16 cities by January 2015 at the latest.
Under existing plans, the worst areas - including London, Birmingham and Leeds - would not meet the pollution limits until 2030, campaigners say.
Britain breached EU targets in 2010 for levels of nitrogen dioxide, a gas particle from car engines and factories which causes breathing and heart problems.
It is still nowhere near adequate levels, and has repeatedly asked to be granted extensions to the EU deadline.
The European court, which is based in Luxembourg, ruled that the UK’s Supreme Court now has jurisdiction over the matter and must order the Government to take action to meet the legal limits in a much shorter time frame.
The Government is also facing a separate £300million fine for failing to meet the EU’s air quality directive on pollution.
Some 16 areas including Greater London, Greater Manchester, Glasgow, Sheffield and the West Midlands are currently in breach of the targets.

So what is the air pollution like in the industrial areas of Germany and Italy for instance, could it be that the British cities have high pollution because there are so many flipping people crowded into them? We are comparable in people per square kilometer with Germany, and other Continental countries, how much bigger in land mass is Germany than the British Isles again?

Could it be because the UK Government hands over money like drunken sailors to any country except  their own.

I think reducing air pollution is a good thing and we should be legislating for it through our own national govt, not at the say so of the EU.



But this is going to be difficult to achieve in London and other cities while also increasing the number of busses and encouraging people to buy other diesel vehicles to travel about in.



Also, most of the time our air is blown into the country from the south/south west and bringing in the pollution that comes with it from France/Spain etc....

Of course it's that simple...but neither the Eurocrats nor the main UK political parties are prepared to do anything about it.

And it's not only cars...it's public transport, power generation, industrial and domestic construction, sewage treatment and disposal, etc., etc.

The more overcrowded we get, the worse the problem will become, and the more the EU will "fine" us for being unable to cope with the sheer stupidity of EU legislation which in theory would allow the entire population of Eastern and Southern Europe to move here at will.

I was wrong in the information I gave regarding England as having the same density of people per square kilometer, my info was out of date - for every German person there are two English persons, for every French person there will soon be four English people, per squre kilometer, why would any sane person want more people to come here and live in a crowded little island, surely you don't need to be racist, xenophobic or any other ist or phobe to appreciate that.

Oh well, I must be then along with the divine censuses and European figures, which he sets so much store by, when it suits his agenda for any particular thread, of course.

If we exterminated Brussels that would stop an awful lot of hot air fouling the atmosphere.
