Poland is one of the most polluted countries in Europe, and the fact that the new government virtually slaughtered Polish renevable energy industry and halted construction of the first nuclear power plant in Poland due to their love of coal, it seems that will not going to change anytime soon.
But minister Szyszko investigated the matter and he blames:
1. previous government (of course)
2. Poles, who are not patriotic enough and instead of burning Polish coal, heat their homes with foreign coal of lower quality (those bloody foreigners, they are never willing to adjust themselves to our European values!)
3. Nature. Yes, nature. Because what is smog? He heard somewhere that it is some kind of airborne particles. And particles are like a tiny bits of sand, right? So it is Sahara to blame. Sahara is a desert, so it's full of sand, and some of this sand is blown with the wind to Poland. Therefore, it's nature, nothing can be done about it, in your face, eco-leftists, you said you like nature, it's nature, so shut up!
