In the past wars left their scars only where they were waged, and did not affect the atmosphere or the World Ocean. The impact of nuclear weapons is global and will affect land, air and sea environment. Nuclear explosions on the ground will cause irreversible changes in the chemical composition of the upper atmosphere. Life on the Earth is impossible without ozone. This gas, concentrated chiefly in the stratosphere (at an altitude of 10— 50 kilometres), creates an "ozone shield" which protects life on the planet from the deadly impact of harsh ultraviolet radiation from the Sun.

Government measures to control environmental pollu­tion are long established, and are complimentary to the planning system to conserve the country's heritage.

The Control of Pollution Act 1974, which applies to England, Scotland and Wales, sets out a wide range of powers and duties for local authorities, including control over wastes, air and water pollution and noise.

Our ancestors considered the Earth's resources to be boundless and endless. We have no right to blame our an­cestors for their ecological ignorance: they fought to live.Even in the 19th century when the word "ecology" was born people continued to use nature as consumers, consi­dering Man to be "lord and king" of nature and not the child. In the 20th century with the rapid growth of science and technology human achievements in conquering nature became so great that man's economic activities began to produce an increasingly negative effect on the biosphere. People are striving to reach an immediate objective, their consumer attitude to nature in disregard of natural laws break natural balance. According to the International Union for the Protection of Nature 76 species of animals and some hundred species of plants have disappeared from the planet in the course of the last 60 years. 132 mammal and 26 bird species face extinction not so much due to hunting as due to the pollution of the biosphere.

Britain is a small, beautiful and crowded country, separated from the continent by the English Channel and the Strait of Dover.

Numerous historical and cultural places of interest on its territory remind of the tremendous past of the coun­try.

The island, inhabited by the Celtic tribes (the name Britain probably derives from one of them) long before our era survived the Roman conquest from the first till the fifth centuries of our era, the Anglo-Saxon occupation in the middle of the fifth century, the Danish attacks in the 8th—10th centuries and the Norman invasion in 1066. All these contributed to the evolution of the people who became the English and to the formation of the language that became the English language.
