Clean Up the Baltic Sea

Published torsdag 11 juni 2009 kl 15.26

The Baltic Sea is often described as one of the filthiest seas in the world. Shipping, eutrophication and algae blooms are said to be the main culprits. The European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union, has now come up with an ambitious proposal to come to grips with the Baltic problem. It calls on Sweden and the other 8 countries bordering the Baltic Sea to invest 500 million Euros, roughly about $US 700 million in short and long term projects. The Swedish branch of the World Wide Fund for Nature has welcomed the proposal. Åsa Anderson, in charge of Baltic Sea issue at WWF Sweden told Radio Sweden that she was pleased with the "holistic approach."
