Transport minister criticises European air quality measuring

Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung

Germany’s new transport minister, Andreas Scheuer, has criticised European air quality measuring standards. In an interview with the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung, Scheuer said that while EU agreements “must of course be abided by,” the methods used to measure air quality were questionable. “I have my doubts if pollution in Madrid, Brussels, Marseille or Rome is measured in the exact same way as it is in German cities,” Scheuer told the paper.
