Climate change is a fact not a hoax. Global warming poses a real threat to human existence and the effect of it would be more evident in the coming years. There are natural disasters all around the world urging us to take preventive measures to control the rising temperature. Even though there are people who think that climate change is not real, in reality, the damages we inflicted upon the environment is irreparable.
Though the danger is evident there are countries who didn’t consider climate change as a problem by saying that it is a waste of money. But the case of Russia, the world largest country is so different. While the rest of the world is so worried, Russians are celebrating climate change. They are expecting good warm climate and the rising temperature would open up new possibilities for them. Russias northern part is covered in ice caps which makes most of the land inhospitable. The rise in temperature is a good sign for the Russians because it would give them access to the Arctic sea and enable them to exploit the natural resources in the region.
The opening of new sea routes in the artic would cut the travel more profitable and time-saving. The Kremlin already started its exploration for natural resources in the Arctic region. The more warm climate would make the land more suitable for cultivation. The gas giant Gazprom even has given its employees huge function as a gesture of showing their new possibilities.
It is not certain how long Russia can enjoy the benefits, ignoring the coming dangers. There are new possibilities during each disaster but ignoring climate change might be a big mistake that we intentionally forgetting.
