Recently, the second round of the third batch of 8 central ecological and environmental protection inspection teams has fully completed the work of inspectors.

Each inspection team went deep into the grassroots, the front line, and the scene, and verified a number of blindly launched "two highs" projects, illegal quarrying, lagging environmental infrastructure construction, illegal encroachment on wetlands, illegal pollution discharge, false perfunctory rectification, and other outstanding ecological environments. Questions, a batch of formalistic and bureaucratic issues such as inaction, slowness, non-accountability, non-responsibility, and even perfunctory response and fraud have been verified. Up to now, 40 typical cases have been exposed.

  Environmental protection inspection is a major system reform in the field of ecological civilization construction. It not only discovers and feeds back problems, but also pays more attention to the effectiveness of problem rectification.

Improving the modernization of the ecological environment governance system and governance capabilities is a long-term and important task that must be consistently adhered to.

It should be noted that the regions that have conscientiously implemented the rectification of environmental protection inspection issues have not only effectively improved the environment, but also promoted the local economic and social development.

The once devastated Helan Mountain in Ningxia, after years of rectification and restoration, has now become an Internet celebrity attraction. Villagers have returned to their hometowns to start businesses, and many villages’ collective income have repeatedly hit record highs. The comprehensive renovation of the Yangtze River coastline in Maanshan City, Anhui Province has changed from "binjiang not see the river" to " "Urban ecological living room" has made room for the development of high-quality industries.

If problems are found and not evaded, and if problems are rectified, the ecological environment can be continuously improved.

  A small number of localities and cadres did not want to understand and figure out the political, economic, and ecological accounts, and the phenomenon of perfunctory handling and false rectification has never ceased.

The typical case exposed this time not only has the old problems of rushing to deal with inspectors and falsely reporting the results of rectification, but also new manifestations of scoring sideballs and exploiting loopholes in an attempt to cover their “illegal facts” with “legitimate cloaks”.

Why do old problems continue, and new problems reappear?

Is it reluctant to sacrifice long-term development in exchange for short-term benefits? Is it paralyzed by the idea of ​​"it has always been this way, and the'strictness' will pass for a while", or is it the mentality of "sweeping the pot" after working for a few years?

Regardless of the reason, in the final analysis, the political consciousness is not strong, the spirit of responsibility is not enough, and the will to work for the benefit of the people is not firm.

  Strictly and honestly promote the rectification and reform of environmental protection inspectors' feedback of problems.

In the face of problems, where the inspection team reports and assigns problems, they must not only face the stubborn illness, dare to be tough, take out wall charts to fight, reverse the construction period, implement measures to rectify and cancel the number, and resolutely rectify the problems reported by the inspectors.

It is also necessary to take the rectification of the problem as an opportunity to conduct self-examination of pollution problems and potential risks in the jurisdiction, draw inferences from one another, and promptly promote comprehensive rectification of problems.

On the basis of systematic rectification and comprehensive rectification, we will use a development perspective to promote the transformation of an extensive economy to a green economy, continue to consolidate and develop the effectiveness of rectification and reform of environmental protection inspection feedback, and continuously enhance the people's sense of gain.

  Leading cadres, especially the leaders of the party and government, must truly put themselves in and promote environmental protection inspectors to feedback problems and rectify problems.

In advancing the work, party members and leading cadres must earnestly shoulder their responsibilities, in an attitude of being responsible to history, to the people, and to the ecology, and to push forward problem rectification and system rectification without delay.

For places that have not been inspected, they cannot "watch the fires from across the bank", but must also thoroughly examine their own problems, carry out in-depth supervision of corporate wastewater and exhaust gas emissions, comprehensive monitoring of air pollution, inspections of sewage outlets into rivers and seas, and carry out river dredging and tidal flat treatment. And so on, to promote the integrated protection and restoration of mountains, rivers, forests, fields, lakes, grasses and sand.

At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen publicity and take the opportunity of environmental protection inspection to go deep into the villages and people along the rivers and lakes, distribute environmental protection brochures, and widely mobilize the people to participate in the construction of ecological civilization through radio and television.

  Supervision is indispensable to implement problem rectification.

Disciplinary inspection and supervision agencies should base themselves on their own functions and responsibilities, strengthen the supervision and inspection of the central ecological and environmental protection inspection team's feedback and assign problem rectification, seriously investigate and deal with outstanding problems such as inspections, false rectifications, perfunctory rectifications, and serious accountability for poor performance in pollution prevention and control work. , Dereliction of duty and other acts.

Use strong supervision to promote the rectification and reform of outstanding issues, promote the implementation of major decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee on ecological and environmental protection, and promote the creation of a beautiful China with green mountains, green waters, and fresh air.
