Complaint to the European Commission concerning the Nord Stream gas pipeline
Official document | 6 January 2010
The complaint from Estonian Green Movement and the Estonian Fund for Nature points out that from an environmental perspective the documentation presented by Nord Stream are far from acceptable. Many experts have expressed an impression that some documents have intentionally diminished the actual level of environmental risks in a hope that these activities and documents are not subjected to any serious scientific scrutiny.
Many chapters of the EIAs and the supporting documents exhibit serious misuses of data in interpretations. In certain cases, even basic knowledge and methodology of physics, statistics, mathematics, chemistry, biology (specically, ecotoxicology) is ignored, and the suggestions of low impact or low risks do not rest on solid factual ground.
The environment of the Baltic Sea and the life quality and health of the people of the Baltic Sea countries are at stake.
