The Ministry of the Environment proposes a method of chemical disposing of waste in lakes as the only one, because it is about 10 times cheaper than mechanical cleaning.

Ecological problems of Lithuania

What is the ecological situation in Lithuania? According to the data of the Ministry of Environment, “currently the natural conditions in the territory of the Republic of Lithuania do not endanger the existence of the nation and the state”.

Over the past year more than 50% of the main pollutants entering in the surface of water bodies have been reduced. However, only 40% of the wastewater is cleaned up to the established limits, as most of the wastewater treatment plants of the polluted water are physically and morally obsolete. Water supply networks are worn out and do not ensure the quality of the supplied drinking water. A large number of domestic production units use more energy, raw materials and water than European Union (EU) companies.

The Uninhabitable Earth, Annotated Edition

We published “The Uninhabitable Earth” on Sunday night, and the response since has been extraordinary — both in volume (it is already the most-read article in New York Magazine’s history) and in kind. Within hours, the article spawned a fleet of commentary across newspapers, magazines, blogs, and Twitter, much of which came from climate scientists and the journalists who cover them.

Some of this conversation has been about the factual basis for various claims that appear in the article. To address those questions, and to give all readers more context for how the article was reported and what further reading is available, we are publishing here a version of the article filled with research annotations. They include quotations from scientists I spoke with throughout the reporting process; citations to scientific papers, articles, and books I drew from; additional research provided by my colleague Julia Mead; and context surrounding some of the more contested claims. Since the article was published, we have made four corrections and adjustments, which are noted in the annotations (as well as at the end of the original version). They are all minor, and none affects the central project of the story: to apply the best science we have today to the median and high-end “business-as-usual” warming projections produced by the U.N.’s “gold standard” Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
