EU elections: ‘climate misused to raise tax’

The goverment is exaggerating the problems of climate change in order to bring in all sorts of environmental taxes, Barry Madlener, European election campaign leader for the anti-Islam PVV, says in an interview with website

‘Scientifically, climate change is a big question mark,’ Madlener told ‘Dutch politicians are behaving as if it is the fault of humans…. there are as many institutes which say it is as say it is not.’
Madlener also said environment problems did not need to be tackled by the EU. ‘These so-called problems are global. We [should] work with the Americans and Chinese as well.’
