‘Bypass Stockholm’: Greenwash in Sweden

Andreas Carlgren, Sweden’s environment minister, has won his country’s coveted Greenwash award. It’s all to do with a new roadbuilding project:

Carlgren defended the bypass by claiming that it is an "environmental and climate friendly option for Stockholm", "a major investment in trams and buses", and a motorway
"for the future of environmentally friendly cars".
