Environmental protection in Great
Our civilisation has gone so far in its development and
polluted the environment to such an extend that is very
difficult to reverse it to primordial nature. The
poisoning of the World’s land, air and water in the

from factories, chemical fertilisers and pesticides used

the problems at national and international levels such

the optimists. They are sure that people start
pollution, people can stop it. Let it be so.
