Abstract

Geoethics was born in 1991 at the junction of ethics and geology. Dr. Vaclav Nemec is considered the father of this discipline. Geoethics has been accepted by both Earth and Social Sciences because of the necessity of an appropriate ethical attitude to the whole geosphere and of a critical analysis of geoethical dilemmas and finding ways how to solve them.
