Germany Environmental Issues:
Germany has a number of issues concerning the environment. These include air pollution, partly due to the emissions from coal-burning utilities and industries. Resulting from the sulfur dioxide emissions is acid rain, which is damaging the forests. There is pollution in the Baltic Sea from raw sewage, and in the rivers of eastern Germany from industrial effluents. The country's government has established a mechanism for ending the use of nuclear power over the next 15 years; however, there are still issues with the disposal of hazardous waste. The government is also working to meet the EU commitment to identify nature preservation areas, which is in line with the EU's Flora, Fauna, and Habitat directive.
