Huge expanses of land around the globe are turning arid, human populations are being driven to migrate, entire species are becoming extinct and extreme natural phenomena are occurring with increasing frequency. Scientists and political leaders alike are deeply concerned about the danger looming for the continuation of life on Earth. But others have a different take on the developments. Every crisis is an opportunity, they believe, and indeed, for Russia the climate crisis constitutes a golden opportunity.

Its a short read and worth it, though the content is not new.

I dont believe the climate "change", or rather catastrophe, because its not a change to the better, will be a "chance" for any country as a whole.

For example, large parts of land will be lost, like florida, netherlands, bangladesh. Many of the largest cities of the world are near the ocean, that will be especially bad. A lot of people will lose their home and will have to move elsewhere.

And thats just the start. Thats just what will happen at 1.5 degree, about 8 years from now.

The real "fun" will start when we enter runaway reactions. Like when the permafrost starts to melt, which apparently in Canada has already started, and releases huge amounts of carbon dioxide and other such gases, in turn causing more rising temperatures and thus more melting and more release. This could cause a five degrees celsius rise in the global temperature.

The idea that we can get more gas and oil from the climate collapse is crazy funny though. If you have a sense for black humor. :knife:

Well, the survivors have to live on anyways.

Of course I do not see that as humour either, but rather pragmatism.

And of course one can name it "black humour". After all, petroleum is quite black.

Russian population is on decline by 2050 it will drop to 124 million by 2100 to 83
the recent confrontation with the west have made things worse for the average Russian
more people are dying than than being born and alot leaving the country (alot of middle and high income class)
Russia have no idea no ideology and gives no incentive for its people to remain in the country its just an oligarchy where money speaks louder than the law

Seriously the United States is also an oligarchy where money speaks louder than law. Why so many people still go there?

Of course, if My Honourable Friend clarifies that Russia is a worse and more violent oligarchy than the United States, then I will certainly agree.

But money probably cannot buy one's safety if he or she is against Vladimir Putin, I suppose?
