Debate: We continue our collaboration

Published: 4 October 2013

Following article Gunnar Westrin published in NSD Saturday September 28, 2013, we want to make some clarifications with regard to metals and the environment. A note signed John Ingri - Professor in Environmental Geochemistry, Bjorn Öhlander, professor in Applied Geology och Sten-Åke Elming, professor in Applied Geophysics.

We oppose Westrins simplified statement about the danger of metals, which are not based on evidence. He could have written that he's worried about the effects of emissions from the mining industry, rather than to assert relationships that are not based on facts, then it would have been a more relevant contribution to the debate.
