Fine dust debate: Green throw Scheuer chumminess with the auto industry


The Greens have been accused in the debate about particulate matter and nitrogen oxide limits of Ministers of transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU) chumminess with the auto industry. “It is the task of the Federal government to act on precaution for the protection of all citizens,” said group chief Katrin Göring-Eckardt of the Newspapers of the Funke media group. Scheuer pursue a different course: “It provides the company with the car industry before the protection of the health of the people.” Nitrogen oxides are harmful – particularly for children, Pregnant women and seniors: “The science says very clearly.”

The Green-Chairman Anna Lena Baerbock called the debate more than irritating: “Will the Union actually, the scientific basis of the world health organization in question?” The Minister of transport seem to not just want to the facts to adjust, if the reality can fit into the stuff.
