Läs i vår app för iPhone, iPad och AndroidWho ever has enjoyed following the legendary duel between the Egyptian Pharaoh and his magicians (Alchemists) on one side, and Moses and his brother Aaron on the other, as it is vividly narrated by the Bible, must have realised, that people (at least those living at, or near the eternal battle fields of the middle East) have al- ways had knowledge about the terrible consequences of soil pollution by chemi- cals. This knowledge must have existed long before Moses and his Pharaoh. No- body knows when did it start, yet it must have been born at very early times, reaching back to the dawn of human conscious. As history teaches, human knowledge explodes in logarithmic dimensions, and times have come when pollution attained alarming levels, with pollutants from in- dustrial and military sources becoming a threat to life wherever it exists on this Earth. At the end of the 20th century, states started projects for pollution control and remediation, major Universities changed their programs to accommodate en- vironmental studies at central positions in their curricula and nations forgot their differences and came together to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and other treaties allowing pollution control on world wide scale.
