Recently in Moscow, Russian capital city, the temperatures reached record rates, setting the highest levels since almost a century and probably the second hottest summer in Russia ever recorded. The fires in the are of European Russia are almost 35 in less that two weeks and the draught has killed almost 50-60% of the wheat crops. The country is in a state of emergency, many people die from the temperatures being over heated or exposed to the sun for too long. A thick layer of smoke has covered the capital causing serious risks for the health of the citizens.
This is just a minor consequence from the climate change. In the past several years Russia was a leading example of a rapidly expanding and modernized economy. The oil, red diesel, and gas extraction industry has reached maximum levels of production and the metal industry is working with increased rates of export -steel production in Russia supplies many of the European countries with both fuels and building materials. These industries are polluting seriously the nature and the ecosystem in Russia and, even though critics of the artificial climate change claim that this is impossible to happen, the outcome of that rapid economical expansion is recogniseable today when Russia burns in heat.
From the forest cutting in Russia many hectres of tree land have been destroyed this giving the opportunity for low level plant life to develop. In the heats that have attacked Russia the low level plats dry easily and the spreading of the fire is even easier since, even though quite massive and dangerous during fires, the high trees are easier to control when on fire and the fire itself spreads slowlier. Thus large amount of smoke goes in the atmosphere and is currently attacking the Russian capital creating potential risks for the health of the people.
