The protection of environment in Western and Eastern Europe

Protecting the environment is essential nowadays. We must think at us and think at the next generations. In the last 20 years, Europe has realized that she lives over its possibilities and our way of life overburden the planet. We consume more and more natural resources and we put in danger the environmental systems (water, soil and air). This can not continue indefinitely, especially as the world population continues to grow. If we do not change the behavior now, our future will be less safe and more people will fight for natural resources who will be increasingly less. There are many obstacles to be overcome until we manage to get to a rational consumption. We have to change the way we consume natural resources. In industrialized countries are living comfortably, but they use large amounts of energy and raw materials. Here also produce more waste. To arrive at a rational consumer will have to change our style of rational consumption. Rational development problem seems overwhelming, but really it is. But at school or at home, everyone must contribute to solving it, not only because it is right, but also because it is in our interest long term. By reducing the amount of waste, reuse and recycle household objects and environmental compliance when we go shopping, we can contribute to a radical change. In the early twentieth century to the present day, the temperature rose rapidly increasing. In Europe, the number of climate-related natural disasters has doubled in the 90s compared to the previous decade. And sea water level is rising - in fact alarmingly low for residents and ice sheets has decreased by 10% from the mid-1960s. In the long term, climate change could cause major disasters. Environmental protection is one of the great challenges of Europe, given the extent of damage to the environment by pollution. Waste of Member States amounted to two million tonnes per year, the figure increasing by 10%, which affects the quality of life of the people, especially in urban areas. The European Union has often been criticized for economic development and trade put before environmental issues, which led to a change of optics. It is well known that the pollution knows no borders and, in this context, local effects can evolve rapidly to regional, continental and even global, so that within the European Union (EU), increased pollution in a Member State shall be quickly felt by others, more environmental issues are closely related to unique market requirements

and various other fields such as agriculture, transport, energy, industrial and social policies. More often, part of the raw materials or final products, very complex, are present in air, water and soil. Acid rain is more frequent, due to the presence of sulfur dioxide from the air, thanks to the thermal processes and the use of inferior fuel, are discharged into the atmosphere large quantities of oxides of nitrogen, carbon, carbon black, salts and oxides, metals, entrained gases, produced adverse effects on vegetation, in general, directly or indirectly on humans. A forest, a pond or a lake, for example, each one forming an "ecosystem" that is mutually interrelated and continuous readapteaz looking for a certain balance. All natural factors, determine the conditions of life for the kingdoms of plants, animals and its rational exponent - man, representing the natural environment. In the wild distinguish natural physical components - abiotic elements: air, water, geological substrate, terrain, soil.
