Abnormal heat and fires in Russia: nature is preparing to take revenge


Meteorologists again threaten abnormal heat. The hydrometeocenter warns of the arrival of abnormal temperatures and increased fire hazard in the European part of Russia, the Urals, Bashkiria, the Caucasus, Altai and Chukotka.


Let's face it, last June, weather forecasts for the "hottest summer in history" has not yet been justified. In the Southern Urals, for example, without an autumn jacket, it was sometimes uncomfortable to be on the street. But now nature, apparently, is ready to take revenge. This week, the Russian Federation and its capital will be covered by heat over 33 degrees Celsius. Along with high temperatures, rains and severe thunderstorms will come. The latter sharply increased the risk of forest fires. Emergencies are expected in Altai, in Bashkiria, Kemerovo, Kurgan and Chelyabinsk regions, in Chukotka, in the South and North Caucasus federal districts, where the thermometer columns will rise to more than 40 degrees.

A great danger is the combination of searing heat and thunder with lightning. So, last winter terrible fires raged in Australia, located in the opposite hemisphere. 25 people were killed, more than two and a half thousand buildings were destroyed, 6,3 million hectares of forest burned out. The main reason was a long-term drought, which is why most of the plants dried up and turned into combustible material. The real "boiling point" can be considered January 4, 2020, when the thermometers rose to 47,3 degrees Celsius.

An unusual natural phenomenon exacerbated the fire problem. Smoke led to the formation of cumulonimbus clouds, but instead of extinguishing huge conflagrations, they themselves caused new fires. Thunderstorms forming in them hit dry trees, setting fire to new areas. Here's how local weather forecasters commented:

Such thunderstorms generated by fire can increase the territory of fires due to lightning, atmospheric transport of hot coals and strong gusts of wind.

Just "heavenly punishment." I wonder which of this natural cataclysm conclusions were drawn. International environmental activists have blamed Australia for not fulfilling its obligations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere under the Paris Agreement. Official Canberra rejected these insinuations, saying that there is no direct link between fires and emissions. If Australia really stops extracting resources and stops industry, it will hit it the economy and many people will lose their jobs. Here is such a demagogic substitution of concepts for "ecologists" is obtained. Indeed, fighting forest fires is necessary due to their prevention and timely suppression of foci, and for this we need a powerful Forest Guard service with sufficient funding and logistical support.

In our country, exactly the same problem: after the adoption of the Forest Code in 2007, the Federal Forest Guard Service was de facto liquidated, which had an extremely negative impact on the condition of forests and the ability to respond to fires. Many people have been talking about this problem for 13 years. We at the "Reporter" even spoke with предложением to the general public to make appropriate amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the Forest Code in the framework of a popular vote, but have not been heard.

    Quite right, it's time to expand the staff of the Forest Guard, thereby reducing unemployment in Russia. Budget savings in this case are much more expensive than the budget itself due to damage to the forests of Russia.
    Another classic talked about the dangers of saving -

    Savings are always good, but, saving on matches, Germany cannot be saved from defeat.

      A large number of fires has the name and surname of the creators - in the United States and Australia, the perpetrators were identified by the investigation. But fires are still like weapons against unwanted countries. Recall the periodic fires of peat bogs near Moscow in the 70s, involvement of US services is possible. After all, it turned out that even the explosions of the main gas pipelines of the 70-80s were sabotage of the US special services, this is an established fact from the archives and confessions of some of the employees of these services ... Today, it is possible to create a fire even with satellites using laser installations ...

    Do you propose putting the match up before it burns out, thereby increasing the share of the manufacturing and chemical industries?

      You, Dmitry S., can be answered only by the fact that you look in the book, and you see something else there. What does Forest Guard expansion have to do with match production? You will familiarize yourself with the functions and tasks of the Forest Guard before drawing your conclusions ...

    Oh, she will take this revenge! And the living will envy the dead. Living Earth she is our mother, and humanity is already parasitic. Our body is struggling with parasites .... So it will be here ...
