Why do the environmentalists protest against new coal-fired power plants in Poland? Don’t we need energy?

Environmentalists have been protesting against energy solutions in recent years because the proposed energy sources are often extremely harmful to the environment, and often to economy – they are far too expensive or unprofitable and ineffective. Informing the public about such potential harm is a matter of civic responsibility. Poland remains a democratic country, its law allows for social dialogue and civic participation. Every decision should follow the regulations in force and take into account all potential environmental impacts. That is why any responsible person who suspects the proposed solutions may be invalid or against the law should speak out − just as any citizen wishing to influence their country’s future should vote. The social organizations have been also calling for development of clean energy projects based on renewable energy. Such projects will not only ensure country’s energy independence but will also contribute to the region’s development and environmental protection.
