Apart from presenting the development of the environmental crisis and pointing to its climax at the present time, the authors aims to point out its key consequences or actually negative effects, which could exert a great impact not only on the considerable lowering of the quality of life of the man in the future, but also on the survival of the Earth itself and the whole mankind. Concerning this as one of the specific consequences of the environmental crisis, there have emerged radical ideologies. Intending to protect the nature and the living world their activities and possible responses to the existing system of values are focused on the use of violence, terrorist methods and weapons.
