Despite earlier progress made in curbing greenhouse gases, including CO2, experts at the State Institute for Public Health and Environment now say the situation is likely to worsen again as an expanding economy and wealthier citizens use more fossil fuels such as gas, oil and petrol.
The institute, in its recent report, also stressed the need for stricter controls on pollutants such as animal manure, which can pollute groundwater sources and when vaporised becomes a component of acid rain.
