GB No. 8, summer 1992
The Polish economy absorbs energy in great quantities. We use twice, three times more energy to produce a unit of national income than developed countries.
We lose energy at every stage:
The Polish method to solve the energy crisis (that is to increase energy production) leads to a polluted environment. It also results in a problem difficult to overcome - a depletion of resources. So far the attempts to solve the problem are limited to only one remedy - rising energy and fuel prices. And they are not successful.
Increasingly, Poland causes air, water and soil pollution that involves not only our country, but our North Eastern neighbors. As well energy use affects not only economics, it also influences nature and human beings. This isn't considered in an account of production costs. Poland needs to create new energy policies. It is an emergency.
It is impossible to solve Polish depression without the promotion of rational energy consumption, without an application of energy saving technologies and facilities, without recycling and without usage of alternative energy sources.
REMEMBER! THE GREATEST & CLEANEST ENERGY SOURCE IS TO SAVE IT
