Prevention of pollution of the planet Earth cheaper than cleanup – G8 experts
MOSCOW, March 24 (Itar-Tass) -- It would be cheaper to prevent pollution of the planet Earth than to clean up the pollution aftermath, says a final document of the Moscow meeting of heads of G8 environmental and technological safety agencies.
The document will be referred to G8 leaders through sherpas, said head of the Russian Technological, Environmental and Nuclear Supervisory Service Konstantin Pulikovsky.
The Moscow meeting called for further development of the action plan on climatic changes, environmentally friendly energy and sustainable development, which was adopted at the previous G8 summit in the UK’s Gleneagles, and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
They also urged research into trans-border atmospheric pollution.
