According to the Vice-Chairman of the Climate-the political Council of Sweden Johan Kuylenstierna, global warming and the melting of permafrost can have a serious impact on the life of cities and villages of Siberia.

In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet Kuylenstierna noted that active thawing of permafrost will have a profound effect on the infrastructure. “Under the influence will be of the city and the dam, and the soil will lose its stability. There is a real risk of destruction of the villages and towns that will have a direct impact on people,” he said.

the Scientist commented on the new temperature record in +38 degrees, which was recorded in East Siberia Verkhoyansk. He recalled that the last record at 37.3 degrees lasted 32 years. “This is one of the links of a large chain, to interpret each individually is quite difficult,” — said the expert.
