The mayors, councilors, presidents of the Region and Province are killing us. They are doing it by doing nothing. We are dying. And they are thinking of car parks. In Milan where Pm10 has substituted oxygen and the violation of the limits imposed by the European Community are the daily bread of Morattiwifeofoilmagnate.
In Milan there are 50,000 cars parked each day in "no parking" places. They are put anywhere, in the cycle paths, on the ramps for wheelchair users, double parked. In the city up to 800,000,000 cars come in every day.
The city reckons there is damage "for pedestrians and for vegetation". Councilor Croci indicates the solution: "The main objective, as in other cities, is to transfer the cars underground."
Exactly where he is sending the people of Milan: in a coffin under the ground. These administrators should be denounced. It has already happened in Florence as explained by Vincenzo Brancatisano in the Gazzetta di Modena reporting on the really serious situation in Modena.
"The president of the Region of Tuscany Martini, and the mayors of Florence and other towns, with their Cabinet members for the environment, are considered not to have taken action as they should have done against atmospheric pollution and thus have not defended public health as they should have done.
This is what the Public prosecutor of Florence maintains after closing the investigation on atmospheric pollution in the area round Florence that began in 2005. The prosecutor Prodono, maintains that Martini e Artusa have failed in their duty to perform certain public actions.
These two, together with the mayors and the Cabinet members are accused of "dangerous disposal of things". The administrators have received notification of the conclusion of preliminary investigations and in 15 days the prosecutor will decide who will be brought to trial.
"Modena, regional capital city of fine dust. so fine that it's not felt and it's not seen. Actually it hasn't been seen. Up until now, in fact, we had to be happy with numbers and percentages and this allowed everyone to pretend nothing was happening.
But now we can show the terrifying image of the filters of the companies empowered to monitor the fine dust, the pm10, at the control points that are in the city and the suburbs.
We have gained possession of the filter of the control point in a central area of Modena and it's enough just to look at it to make it unnecessary to make announcements and to order blocks on the traffic. It's a little circular disk made of very white material that after use just in one part has become the colour of a dark mouse tending towards black.
The consistency of the sinister substance deposited on the filter makes you think of a dark carpet. The ritual 12 hours of exposure to the open air have been enough to make it like this. The control station has an aspirator that simulates human respiration, with the same force, and that makes us think that each of us inputs into our organism in half a day, through the mouth and nose, passing down the trachea and the bronchi a correspondent quantity of killer particulate."
