- Conference "Globalization, Energy and the Environment"
- Warsaw, Poland
- The primary theme of the forthcoming conference focuses on the relationship between energy and the environment in the global context. Energy use and supply is of fundamental importance to society and, with the possible exception of agriculture and forestry, has made the greatest impact on the environment of any human activity - a result of the large scale and pervasive nature of energy related activities. Although energy and environment concerns were originally local in character - for example, problems associated with extraction, transport or noxious emissions - they have now widened to cover regional and global issues such as acid rain, transboundary impacts of energy use and the greenhouse effect. Such problems have now become major political issues and the subject of international debate and regulation.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]The website is no longer available.[Redaktion EconBiz - editors EconBiz]
