Just a small update on speed limits on expressways: While in Germany a general speed limit of 130 km/h has been rejected in parliament1, the Netherlands now have passed a law setting a general speed limit of 100 km/h during the day to combat too high nitrogen oxide emissions.2 (note that that’s no climate gas, but harmful for people, animals and plants). The prime minister called it a “rotten measure” but necessary.

It took quite some time and tinkering, but now the first version of my new blog is ready. It’s far from finished at this point, but it works well enough. I’m looking forward to writing down my thoughts about politics, science and more here. We’ll see whether I’ll be able to keep up regular posts.
You can find more information about me and this blog on the about page.
