Gavin Sonic noise pollution..
These sonic devices
http://www.multitecno.com/[…]/black_terrier._dep._2016.pdf
have created tinnitus and dizziness, leading to loss of balance causing injury to several people.
I want these products off the market before fatalities occur.
Any advice on how to proceed is much appreciated

Ieva Hi! I live in a town, in a EU member state.

I strongly feel that the decisions made by our local government are swiftly destroying the abundant nature that used to surround us before the town started expanding. Also, I see that they are disregarding the needs of our citizens, concerning the green and quiet areas that are necessary for our health and ability to jog, hike and walk our pets.

Instead, they are focused on making money off the lands, overly exploiting the natural habitats and selling the existing green territories to private owners who then cut the trees down and make their lawns.

Previously, the wildlife in our town was thriving because the nature areas were largely neglected and there are several wildlife sanctuaries in the neighboring regions from where the species migrated here. I do not believe that anyone has ever bothered to even survey the species and determine their status of conservation and their needs for habitat, accordingly.

The increased human activity has also contributed to an UNBELIEVABLE increase in air pollution. It sometimes hurts to breathe and I often suffer from headaches and stomach-aches due to the quality of air, but the town officials clear out the trees and shrubbery en masse and allow to do so to any other larger property owners.

This is not a wealthy town and most people here work in the factories and supermarkets, or the large schools and hospitals. They are not the people to know their rights or to complain about the lack of nurture because they are used to physically demanding conditions and they know better than to antagonize their 'superiors'. You don't demand something that you have no experience of.

Our state government authorities show extreme unwillingness to consider my observations and arguments and I even have to fight to stop people from burning trash in their private households which is a clear violation of law.

Last fall, two policemen were sent to my home to 'speak to my father' (I am 32 years old, female) and to demand of me to stop bothering the town officials with 'my many personal problems' (I was sending them e-mails, indicating environmental and animal rights issues, and social issues in our town that they keep ignoring or participate in carrying out).

I want to know how to get heard and how to protect myself. Are there any EU level organizations where I could seek support? Thank you kindly, Ieva

Imahn Dear EEA,

I am writing a Social Media post for my political party, where we want to focus on the harmful effects of transport, particulary cars, on humans, nature and climate. For that, we first want to make the point that whereas in some areas, emissions were reduced, in transport, this is failing. For that, I found a very illuminating post on the German website of the European Parlament (
https://www.europarl.europa[…]ahlen-und-fakten-infografik), which has the following graphics: https://www.europarl.europa.eu/[…]/20190321PHT32163_original.jpg

I would love to use the image, and since the source is the EEA, apparently, I searched for this image on your website with the "Search"-button, but was unsuccesful. Therefore, I have the following questions:

1.) Does the image have Creative Commons Licens, i.e. can I use the image freely?
2.) Where may I find the image on the EEA websites?


Many thanks in advance!

Stay healthy,
Imahn

rene Hi, I am a MSc student at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I am looking into the EU ETS data, especially about freely allocated allowances, total allowances, and verified emissions.
However, when I download verified emissions and freely allocated allowances for all stationary installations on aggregate level, it is not the same as when I download the emissions per activity type, and then add the total verified and freely allocated emissions for all activity types.

Interestingly, the total amount of freely allocated allowances on the aggregate level is about twice as high as when I sum them for all activity types.

The verified emissions just differ in both ways, not by a specific fraction.

Now I was wondering, how is this possible, am I doing something wrong, or is there a better way to get this information?

See below the links to the data.

Then, another question relating to the Union Registry: What is exactly the meaning of Allocation_20xx? Is that the total allocation (free+auctioned+bought?), or something else? Same question for Verified_emissions_20xx, these numbers do not seem to coincide with the dataviewer. What data source is the most reliable one?

You would help me a great deal if you have answers to my questions. Thanks a lot in advance and have a great day.

Kind regards,
René

JBartels Dear Sir, Madam,

For an EU wide project we are checking the presence of Hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH) in ground and surface waters. For this we are using the WISE WFD database (
https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/wise-wfd-4), specifically the information on groundwater bodies. In this dataset quantities of HCH are not recorded.
Is it possible to obtain this information?
If that is not the case, is there another way to assess how much HCH is present?

Furthermore, could you give us information on how it is determined that HCH is present in a certain groundwater body?
We have found in a different dataset (Waterbase Water Quality, https://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/waterbase-water-quality-2) that HCH is recorded in instances where there are no measurements above the detection limit (or Limit of Quantification (LOQ)). How can we assure that this is not the case in this dataset?
