  • The Ilva steelworks is a climate monster
    Letter to the Prime Minister, Prof. Giuseppe Conte

    The Ilva steelworks is a climate monster

    If we calculate the atmospheric pollution caused not just by the steelworks alone, but also by the thermoelectric plants that were built to provide it with its power needs and burn its waste gas we arrive at the conclusion that Ilva (ArcelorMittal) is the number one producer of CO2 in Italy

    Ilva Decree: immunity for the new commissioner

    I believe that even in China the government doesn't come to guarantee this. A new law is written to give immunity to those who will manage ILVA. The only hope is that the European Commission will refer this Government to the Court of Justice of the European Union.
