Am I right to assume that emissions for the nine months are actually up 0.3%?

Long way to go.

Its all well and good for germany to buy electric cars, but when will they abandon wood fires to heat their homes. Wood smoke is alot more harmful than cars because diesel cars and going to be sold less.

We need to start a campaign to get people onto ASHP/GSHP and rid themselves of wood smoke.

Wood smoke is also released when everyone is home, one chimney is the same emissions as 300 diesel engines.

Ban wood smoke
