News on environmental zones and air pollution

What comes after the deadline?

Tuesday 30.01.2018, the German Minister for the Environment Barbara Hendricks was invited to the European Commission in order to justify Germany’s problems of air pollution. The Commission had considered taking actions against Germany and other states which exceed EU-limit values for more than 10 years. Last Tuesday, it was announced that Germany had some more days, until Monday 05.02.2018, to present consequent measures of air quality improvement. “A very last deadline!” was reported by all media. And now? The deadline has passes two days ago. Who reported about the current situation? Did the German government actually hand something in? Or, anyway, nobody is interested in this whole theatre?
