Rikkiä kehiin ja ilmasto viilenee !

Oras Tynkkysen pesti hallituksen erikoistehtävissä loppuu lyhyeen, jos kerran Venäjällä jo on ratkaistu ilmaston lämpenemisongelmaa! Nimittäin, ilmaston lämpenemistä voidaan kevyeesti estää suihkuttamalla rikkiä ilmakehään.

Mutta toisaalta, Duman ylähuoneen puhemies Mironov taas kertoi Venäjällä pidetyssä Kyoto-sopimusta käsittelevässä kokouksessa ettei lämpenemisestä ole todisteita, vaan kuljemme itse asiassa kohti kylmempiä aikoja. Vastalauseista päästiin eroon, kun ison konferenssin pääjärjestäjä ei päässyt edes kokouksen koska ilmeni “a slight visa problem”.

Taitaa venäjä olla irtaantumassa Kyoto-sopimuksesta, tuo Mironov on Putinin läheinen kaveri ja Venäjän “oppositiopuolueen” Oikeudenmukaisen Venäjän johtaja.

Venäjällä ratkaistu ilmaston lämpenemisen ongelma !

Russia knows how to prevent global warming – academic

MOSCOW, May 30 (RIA Novosti) – Russian scientists have found a way to prevent global warming of the Earth, the director of the Global Climate and Ecology Institute said Wednesday.

Russian Academy of Sciences Academic Yury Izrael told a news conference that the method envisions air spraying of a sulfur-containing aerosol in lower stratosphere layers at a height of 10-14 kilometers (six to 10 miles). Sulfur drops would then reflect solar radiation.

According to scientists, one million tons of aerosol sprayed above the planet would make possible a reduction of solar radiation by 0.5-1%, and a reduction of air temperature by 1-1.5 degrees Celsius.

Unseasonably hot May weather with temperatures at 32.1 degrees Celsius (89.7 degrees Fahrenheit) beating a 116-year-old maximum has already seen last year’s energy consumption for this time of year surpassed by about 8% in Moscow and 12% in St. Petersburg, a spokeswoman for the UES electricity monopoly said earlier.

Izrael said the method demands more detailed development, and that a relevant decision on the international level should be made for it to come into force.

However, the academic said the method is not an alternative to measures to fight climate change envisioned by the Kyoto Protocol, which contains commitments by some countries on specific volumes of greenhouse gas emission reductions.

“I don’t want any contradiction of the Kyoto Protocol, but in parallel with existing methods, cheaper ones should be developed. I am advocating that work be conducted simultaneously on several methods,” Izrael said.

He also said the Russian scientists’ method will make the fight against warming faster and cheaper. “It is also good that it can be stopped at any moment,” Izrael said.

The Russian academic said global temperature in the coming 100 years could rise by 1.4-4 degrees Celsius, which, he said, will cause droughts, floods and cyclones. He said Russia could face the extinction of 20-30% of its animals and plants if temperatures rise by 2 degrees Celsius.

However, Izrael said the current high temperatures in Moscow are not connected with a global climate change.

“Any fact, even the most acute should not be directly linked to climate change, but should be considered as part of temperature fluctuations,” he said.

Mutta eihän ongelmaa tarvitse ratkaista, kuljemme kohti kylmempää aikaa, kertoo puhemies Mironov

St. Petersburg TimesMay 29, 2007Mironov Claims World Is Getting CoolerBy Simon ShusterStaff Writer

It was a failure from the start. Russia’s biggest conference on the Kyoto Protocol, which aims to fight global warming, began with a speech from a top official who denied that global warming even exists.

“In reality, the scientific basis for the protocol is fairly weak,” Federation Council Speaker Sergei Mironov told a crowded opening session of the two-day conference Thursday, which drew more than 200 environmental experts and carbon market participants from around the world. “In the opinion of many experts, the emission of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere does not have any effect on the climate.”

On this point, Mironov stands on the fringes of global scientific opinion. A growing consensus has formed among top scientists and politicians, who have been warning governments to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases being spewed into the atmosphere. The Kyoto Protocol, first signed in 1997, created a system of financial incentives for doing this.

Although Russia ratified Kyoto in 2004, the government now looks to be reneging on its commitments. Mironov’s speech made that clear.

In fact, a process of “global cooling” is now taking place, Mironov argued, citing several obscure Russian studies to prove it. At one point, he referred to the warmly colored paintings of 16th-century Dutch masters as evidence that temperatures were indeed higher back then. The remark drew as many frowns as chuckles from the crowd.

At the end of the session, Mironov hurried out without opening the floor to questions. Though several other state officials were invited, he was the only one to attend the conference, which was held at the St. Petersburg State Mining Institute, where President Vladimir Putin earned his doctorate in 1997..
