Latvia: identify heavy polluters and develop public transports

Feedback from the Environmental Protection Club (VAK), NGO from Latvia, on what the latvian government should be doing:

"To evaluate the impact of heavy point source polluters like Liepajas Metalurgs. The official moss analysis shows there is a huge point source problem here and there that can be fixed by to health risks adequate permitting for point polluters.

The transport pollution becomes more and more pronounced along the main motorways as well as in urban environment. I suggest more railroads and public transport as a solution."
