Tre journalister fra Holland, Italien og Tyskland har begået et ”giftigt” stykke journalistik. De har gjort det i samarbejde – og det er finansieret af www.journalismfund.eu. Dejligt at se, i disse for journalistikken så pressede tider.
Det handler om EU, stålindustri og miljø og kan downloades via ét af de to links herunder:
The results of a cross border journalism project: Nerves of steel: carte blanche to Europe’s atmospheric polluters. A classic example of how evidence-based policy does not prevail to the detriment of EU citizens’ health.
A new European environmental Directive designed to protect EU citizens against fine dust emissions is unlikely to be very effective. Indeed, it appears that the Industrial Emission Directive 2010/75/EU, also called IED, has been weakened due to industry pressures.
The aim of the IED was to prevent or reduce as much as possible environmental pollution by fine dust emanating, among others, from industrial facilities. The trouble is that the very industries such Directive is designed to regulate have had tremendous amount of influence on how it will ultimately work.
