Summary

Subject is focused on environment creation, ecosystem and processes ongoing inside, emissions formation and consequencies of their occurence to the environment. Possibilities how to avoid their creation and procedures of their abatement are further discussed. It is a purpose to point out to the wider connections between development of power and impact to the environment having connection with these processes.
