The Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report stating that Russian meteorological-station data does not appear to substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory; contrary to the manipulated impression given by UK researchers involved in Climategate.
The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.
Even if there isn't any man made global warming, we can't continue polluting the planet like this, man. Here in Brazil, we have this huge coastal area with beautiful beaches, but so many of them are now polluted. It's common practice in some cities to dump the sewage waste into the sea. Not to mention the oil spills. I have seen beaches that even today have oil on the coral reefs and the sands. The city of Sao Paulo gets 800.000 new cars added to the streets every year. It's crazy. Because of my job I travel all over the country and a common problem to most cities is how to deal with the trash. Lots and lots of trash is produced daily and we have to find a place to dump all that trash.
Soviet and now Russian drifting ice stations are named "Severnyy polyus" (Russian: «Северный полюс»; English: "North Pole") and are abbreviated SP (Russian: «СП»; English: "NP"). Each station is assigned an ordinal number. "NP" stations carry out the program of complex year-round research in the fields of oceanology, ice studies, meteorology, aerology, geophysics, hydrochemistry, hydrophysics, as well as in the field of marine biology. On average, an "NP" station is the host for 600 to 650 ocean depth measurements, 3500 to 3900 complex meteorology measurements, 1200 to 1300 temperature measurements and sea water probes for chemical analysis, 600 to 650 research balloon launches. Magnetic, ionosphere, ice and other observations are also carried out there. Regular measurements of the ice floe coordinates provide the data on the direction and speed of its drift. The modern "NP" drifting ice station resembles a small settlement with housing for polar explorers and special buildings for the scientific equipment. Usually an "NP" station begins operations in April and continues for two or three years until the ice floe reaches the Greenland Sea. Polar explorers are substituted yearly. Since 1937 some 800 people were drifting at "NP" stations.

Russia is not controlled by the NWO, yet. You can trust them to tell the truth on this. I noticed Obama is pushing through the Patriot battery plans.. so much for that being a neo-con policy. They will be placed in Poland and pointed toward Russia. Just one facet of the containment strategy.

How about this - Russia is the only country that stands to gain SIGNIFICANTLY from global warming. They will have access to vast areas of food production land currently ice bound. Further there are HUGE areas of energy and mineral reserves also locked away which would become available. Global warming to Russia is about the best thing that could happen - but of course the RUSSIANS are going to be all upfront on this issue - like everything else....LMAO

A star for an honest, simple view on the issue. You haven’t pretended to understand complicated graphs, nor claimed to have read and understood mountains of data... just told it as you see it with your own eyes... nice one
Too many people confidently regurgitate second hand information as if they know what they are talking about... Not many people on this site are climatologists yet they confidently make bold statements about this issue!!!
And I am talking about both sides of the argument... I would love to see more honesty!!
It really scares me that people are prepared to take gambles with our life support system because they are frightened of having to change the way they live and because they are too arrogant to admit that they really don’t know the truth.
Thanks for a refreshingly honest post
With regards to the OP... i see it like this... it means nothing...
If the Russian scientists had said that they had found evidence that supports the MMCC theory then people would be saying "Those Russians are at it again... they are just saying this because they will gain from Cap and Trade... You can’t trust them... they are so corrupt" etc... It is simply a case of getting into bed with anyone who happens agree with your own personal belief.
I've even seen people praising Nick Griffin (the leader of the British far right political party BNP) for his comments claiming MMCC is a scam.
For me, as someone who does believe in MMCC, if Nick Griffin stepped forward and said that MMCC was fact I would do everything to distance myself from the vile little creep. Just because he happens to agree with one of the things I believe does not make him a friend of mine!!!
But it seems to me that people are so desperate, when it comes to this issue, that they will happily accept allies were ever they can get them... regardless of what other principles they have to sell out!!
So now its
“All hail the glorious Russian truth tellers and their free and incorruptible scientists”
Just my opinion... i mean no offence to anyone
