Comments (1)

The Region of Piedmont has decided to produce 20% of its energy it needs from renewable sources. How does it want to do this? By the destruction of woodland. To produce energy, 2.2 million cubic metres of wood each year will be used, according to the mad regulations of the new regional law on forestry (L.R. 4/2009). A law in complete conflict with the arrangements for sustainability of the Resolutions approved by the Ministerial Conferences on the protection of the forests in Europe.

The Trieste hospital has not taken into consideration the tests done abroad, the tests that for now, have saved his life, and two days ago

Viareggio_senza_colpevoli.jpg
The Ferrovie italiane {Italian Railways} have performed miracles. The 2009 accounts bear witness to that. In 4 years, the “rationalization of operating costs” have brought about a reduction of 1.1 billion euro. The net profits have grown by 175% and have arrived at 44 million euro. The people of Viareggio who died, would be happy if they knew that.
