Introduction (see pdf. Russian, German)

There is no prosperity without innovation, no innovation without inventions and there are no inventions without inventors. The innovation is controlled by the profit. The profit raise ignores everything still the ecology too. Therefore some invention resulted in environmental harmful as leaded fuel or organo-fluorines etc. But the better part of the inventions protect the environment, these are green inventions.

"There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew..." (Marshall McLuhan); So come on Inventors, let's go save this world, before it's too late.
