The mood tilts against smoke, rockets and boulders on New Year’s Eve. German environmental and safety experts call for behavioral changes. Year after year, since 2004, the Germans have been digging deeper into the pockets to let thugs and rockets fly through the air.

For this turn of the year, the Association of the Pyrotechnic Industry expects at least the repetition of the record sales of the previous two years of 137 million euros.

Other numbers are alarming. The fine dust in the air rises explosively.

According to the German Federal Environmental Agency, 4,500 tonnes of particulate matter are catapulted into the air on New Year’s Eve alone. That corresponds to no less than fifteen percent of the total annual emissions in German traffic.

Citizens’ initiative in Finland

Against health hazards and destruction by fireworks stirs in Finland. There, a citizens’ initiative has already collected 50,000 signatures for a ban. The issue will be discussed in Parliament.

Risto Karhunen of the Finnish Financial Services Association said: “Every year, fireworks cause serious eye and other injuries in Finland, in addition to the emergency services being called in for about a hundred extra missions, and of course there are the annual fires, including major fires with serious fires Consequences.”

Many German municipalities and cities leave such aspects cold, many others have already responded. For example, böllerverbote of recent date apply approximately in the center of Hanover, the Dusseldorf Old Town, around the Cologne Cathedral and in the Dortmunder Bahnhofsviertel.

The German environmental aid called on communities with high air pollution to set up central firework zones. Churches reminded of the donation bread instead of Böller.

Pragmatic and environmentally neutral, the German Union of Police responded to calls for fireworks ban. For the then necessary controls, the police do not have enough staff.
