LANDFILLS AS A CONVENIENT AND IRRESPONSIBLE CONDUCT OF AUTHORITIES FROM THE LOWEST LEVELS TO LEGISLATORS
Before joining the European Union, in Poland as in many other countries around the world, landfills were something normal and acceptable. In time, when energy companies noticed the potential in segregated waste, which legislators described as PRE RDF, the devastation, poisoning of the environment and climate by all countries struggling with landfill problems has begun.
The method of incineration of municipal and sorted waste has become the most popular practice of getting rid of the problem. It was called thermal transformation of waste which resulted in the improper disposal of money by the EU, and various funds, which invested in these methods were many times misled because the described method did not show any effects, its harmful emissions and toxic ash result in greater environmental pollution and adversely affect the climate.
THERMAL TRANSFORMATION - ONLY A FINANCIAL EFFECT
Any known method of thermal transformation has only a financial goal, which efficiently described in business plans gives a golden key to obtain financing from various institutions, which mostly do not know the method indicated in them, because the financial result only needs to match the final accounting result.
The President of the Republic of Poland - Andrzej Duda has signed an amendment to the Environmental Protection Law (a regulation of July 23, 2015 amending the Act), which aims to provide a high level of protection for people and the environment by implementing appropriate systems and procedures to manage and control hazards associated with hazardous substances. The amendment to the Act, signed by the President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda will place the responsibility on the producers of waste (owners) and it will make them responsible for effective disposal of the waste they produce or manage.
LANDFILLS - HARMFUL EMISSIONS OF CO2 AND GROUNDWATER POLLUTION
The main problem of all landfills is the lack of effective protection against environmental poisoning. Poisoning takes place by emitting directly into the atmosphere the fumes of substances contained within. Soil contamination is associated with the introduction into watercourses by the seepage of rainwater through waste at the landfill directly to the ground. Decaying processes taking place inside and elevated temperature is a favourable environment for fungi, insects, which in the immediate vicinity of our homes are the cause of many dangerous diseases. From the research conducted by the WHO (World Health Organization) over a dozen of years, there has been an increase in cases of diseases that have been classified as having an unidentified and unknown to today's medicine factor in the form of a mutation of pathogens in diseases, which result in an increasing number of unknown diagnoses of the cause of death.
WHO beats the alarm because landfills with an unidentified stream of waste within 15 years have come closer to our homes. The growing agglomerations face a huge problem of a pandemic that could threaten our lives. Governments are trying to oppose the spread of the pandemic, but these are usually ad hoc activities, often inadequate. This is related, for example, to financial outlays and the impossibility of stopping people's migration. In the so-called third world, in the absence of medical control, the spread of mutated pathogens of the disease can bring unimaginable effects. Waters and watercourses polluted by landfills and fed by percolating rainwater endanger the population of highly developed countries to the same extent.
The aforementioned fumes of harmful gases, as well as CO2 and intensifying migration to highly developed countries, can cause unimaginable effects in terms of diagnosis and effective treatment. It should be noted that pathogens refer to bacteria and viruses.
