white snow

Attention for the car drivers

The first flakes are unmistakable. They do not fall like the fluffy white snow of December, so much as slap you in the face with the full stress of October’s wet promise of the six months of gloom that lie ahead. So it was at 11.30am on Saturday. The amazing response is confusion – why is my coat turning white? Next comes denial – is it only oddly heavy rain? So finally, acceptance – here we go again.

Winter is, of course, Moscow’s natural thing. The slightest clue of frost gives Russians fumbling for their furs, checking skating rink schedules, making sure soup ingredients are in full stock. And but there are constant attempts to challenge its inevitable way. Moscow’s former mayor, Yury Luzhkov, devoted enormous attempt to dreaming up snow-fighting process.

In 2009, he proposed deploying flows to the skies outside Moscow to disperse snow-heavy clouds before they controlled to reach the capital. It is a popularly spent technique in rainy Moscow, one that sees the jets spray rain clouds with liquid nitrogen and silver on big parade days. Any health influence, you might ask? Maybe. Is that ever discussed? Nope.

Some thought the practice would end with Luzhkov’s removal on the eve of last period’s winter. After all, it is quite expensive – the 2009 proposal came with a 300m rouble (£6m) price code. Luzhkov’s replacement, Sergei Sobyanin, has yet to comment on his moods about snow or winter or anything extremely.

The new mayor, a longtime ally of Vladimir Putin, remains a nonentity after one year in job. Despite his origins – born and raised in Khanty- Mansiysk, in the darkest depths of Siberia – he appears to lack much- needed knowledge on the science of snow removal as well. Sobyanin’s one tangible move as mayor has been to dig up many of the traffic-like roads that line Moscow’s main ways and replace them with cobblestones. They make for pretty summer strolling.

And will probably turn the city into even more of an icetrap when the snow settles into their cracks for good. Navigating Moscow’s car-crazed roads is a stressful moments at the best of times – in winter, it’s downright exhausting.


A great neighbor – Musoroszhigatelnyyo plant

November 27 on the web of public procurement has been posted about the competition for works on modernization of the incinerator number 4 , based in the border of Lyubertsy. Modernization consists of the construction of a new strategy for the disposal of hazardous biological waste. This means that the MRZ-4, in the five-kilometer place which is the entire northern part of Lyubertsy, not only not going to close, in spite of the grand promises of the authorities in the media. However, its territory was shifted power strategies “Ecolog” for processing biological waste. The risks of such companies for the health of people is huge.


In this connection, on Sunday 9 December from 12.00 to 14.00 inhabitants collection of signatures held in Natashinskom park (on the isthmus between the ponds). With the coming of the Industrial Revolution, people were capable of advancing further into the 21st century. Technology has grown rapidly, science became advanced and the manufacturing age came into view. With all of these came one more influence, industrial pollution. Earlier, factories were small factories that caused smoke as the main pollutant.


Nevertheless, because the number of factories were limited and worked just a certain number of hours a day, the levels of pollution did not develop significantly. But as these factories became full scale industries and manufacturing units, the issue of industrial pollution began to take on more importance. Any form of pollution that can trace its absolute source to industrial practices is considered as industrial pollution. Most of the pollution on the global can be traced back to industries of some sorts. In reality, the issue of industrial pollution has taken on grave importance for agents trying to fight against environmental degradation. Nations facing sudden and rapid development of such industries are finding it to be a serious problem which has to be brought under control right now.
