According to the 'Environmental Kuznets Curve' (EKC) hypothesis, the level of pollutant emission grows along with the initial stage of economic development and, then, diminishes with further economic development. Usually, the EKC hypothesis is explained by three effects: the scale effect, the structure (or composition) effect and the income effect. In this paper, a verification of the EKC was undertaken basing on the example of the carbon dioxide emission by the industry in the OECD countries, this time the attention being concentrated on the two less popular effects: the 'shock' effect and the effect related to the 'pollution heaven hypothesis' (the 'dirty production migration' effect). As an example of the 'shock' the petroleum crisis of the seventies was chosen. The verification results showed a substantial impact of the petroleum crisis on the change in the carbon dioxide emission by industry and, at the same time, unimportance of the 'pollution heaven' effect.
