Projected changes in Arctic pack ice Projected changes in Arctic pack ice
The averages of the scenarios in the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) for the Arctic pack ice sheet (the permanent ice) are presented in this map, with the successive decrease in the ice up to 2090.

Environment and security issues in Belarus and Ukraine Environment and security issues in Belarus and Ukraine
The Concept of National Security of Belarus focuses on both external and internal security issues. It directly refers to environmental problems such as global climate change, trans-boundary transport of pollution and the risk of serious accidents at industrial facilities located in Belarus and other countries close to Belarus borders, land degradation and radioactive contamination resulting from the Chernobyl.

Two scenarios for biofuels by 2030 Two scenarios for biofuels by 2030
Biodiesel is produced from oil, which can be sourced from oil seed crops such as rapeseed, soy bean, sunflower or jatropha and from waste oil such as cooking oil. Water and other contaminants are removed from the oil and the fatty acid content present in the oil is separated and ransformed. Biodiesel can be blended with conventional diesel in vehicles, usually in a 5 per cent blend (B5).In some countries it is sold in blends up to 20 per cent (B...

Nuclear energy is not a clean alternative The legacy of the Soviet Union's nuclear activities Nuclear energy is not a clean alternative The legacy of the Soviet Union's nuclear activities
Even though the nuclear industry does not significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, it is a disputable alternative to fossil fuels. In the former USSR people and the environment still have to cope with the nuclear industry’s legacy.
