Government, environmentalists butt heads over Haifa pollution at special Knesset session in Haifa

The responses at a special session on Haifa pollution on Sunday were to be expected.

Government representatives said it is too early to tell if there is a direct correlation between pollution and health problems in Haifa, while everyone else criticized them for not doing enough over the years.

One thing stood out, however: a complete lack of order from politicians, environmentalists and civilians alike. The behavior was more befitting of a kindergarten than a government meeting as screaming, yelling, and interruptions filled the room at Haifa University where Yesh Atid MK Karin Elharar presided over a special session to discuss the comptroller’s report on how the government was dealing with Haifa’s air pollution.
