Article
Full-text available
Coal phase-out is an integral part of the ongoing energy transition to a decarbonized economy. Any such process involves diverse actors that compete over the nature and pace of such transition. This research uses the Advocacy Coalition Framework to analyze the conditions of policy change within an adversarial subsystem. It focuses on the coal subsy...
Article
Based on the discussion on the sources and mechanisms of environmental conflicts (especially those related to mining activities), it was pointed out that the structural model of conflict (the so-called ‘circle of conflict’, introduced by Ch. Moore in 1986) can, and even should be, supplemented with additional, new items. As a result, it forms a spa...

Selecting locations for lignite mining and power generation complexes has been the subject of intense controversy. As a result, there have been many conflicts in society due to environmental and economic concerns. This paper poses the question of how lignite surface mining affects local communities. These effects may be both negative and positive a...
Article
The paper shows the current position of China as a world power in the field of mineral resources. The major products of the mineral sector are listed and the essential relationship between mining, society and inhabited environment is characterized numerically by comparison with analogous situation in Poland. Selected results of research on socio-en...

Omawiana w tym tomie problematyka obejmuje takie kwestie, jak: • toksyczny wpływ metali ciężkich na środowisko • charakterystyka poszczególnych terenów metalonośnych Polski •...
Article
This paper describes a moral panic as a social phenomenon in relation to the issue of mineral development projects. A moral panic involves creating a sense of insecurity in a group of people by exaggerating facts that are perceived as a social problem. Mineral exploration and exploitation are activities that are particularly likely to spark public...
Article
Surface lignite mining covers large areas and usually generates social conflicts which pose one of several energy security threats to certain states. Therefore, defining the social conditions determines the success of a mining project. Two communes were chosen for a public opinion study: Kleszczów, where the Bełchatów mine is located, and Złoczew,...
Article
Full-text available
Problems of the social non-acceptance of the mining industry (particularly development projects) is relatively new, so more widely discussed for a relatively short time. In this paper, an extensive review of worldwide literature on this topic has been presented with special regard to the specificity of the European Union countries, where the NIMBY...
Article
Full-text available
In the recent years numerous socio-environmental conflicts have been reported in Poland and other European countries in relation to the development of new or reopening of abandoned mineral deposits. This paper examines possibilities of predicting which of the specified deposits are relatively less contentious with regard to the local social determi...
Article
Full-text available
Developing of large-scale lignite excavation can often generate socio-environmental conflicts between mining-energy companies and various stakeholders, such as local communities or ecological organizations. In this context indication of potential channels of communication with local communities’ is needed to increase the level of their satisfaction...
Chapter
The inconvenient sinkholes in the area of the village of Kuźnica Masłońska were observed in last years. In the past, shallow exploitation of the Lower Jurassic brown coal was conducted in the vicinity of the village. The principal purpose of the study was to explain the origin of the deformations and to define the geotechnical conditions for buildi...
Article
Despite of a requirement of public consultations at a planning stage of environmentally hazardous investments, social conflicts related to mining projects are not exceptional cases at present. Based on different sources of information, the author has identified several dozens of such conflicts observed on a different scale in many areas of Poland i...

Article
The three main types of porphyries, differing in lithology and sequence, have been distinguished on the basis of data from four neighbouring boreholes located in the area of the Myszków Mo-W-Cu deposit. The age of the oldest type is close to that of the main granitoid stock, the others are younger. All the porphyry types and individual intrusions h...
Conference Paper
The paper presents quantitative and qualitative research of public opinion on planned zinc-lead ore exploitation in the Zawiercie administration unit (Poland). Results reveal clear diversification depending on the age of citizens, levels of their education and other factors (fig. 1). In general, negative attitude towards the mining project developm...
