    We should introduce our military ecologists to the Greenpeace ... We would quickly forget how to climb the Prirazlomnaya ... And then the world community will never be able to blather anywhere!
    Well, environmentalists met, well, we talked (after our "get to know" those), what can I take? There are various disagreements among the scientists of the world, and even if during the discussion our opponents have their noses turned upside down or their ears became like those of African elephants - the costs of the profession. Not ready for this - don't join Greenpeace laughing laughing laughing

        Well, now Russia has come there ..
        - It is good that work begins with the cleaning of old rubbish. Under the USSR, nevertheless, the purity was not very closely monitored. And now, for sure, they will try to continue to protect the vulnerable northern nature.

          It's all about priorities. In the USSR, and for pensioners, there was enough money for treatment. And the education was the best. And now! .. Luzhkov laid the Moscow park on the 850th anniversary. Great park, my wife and I walked back in June. And already in August Sobyanin turned the park into a huge quarry. And whose money is crazy, it’s not the people to spend, but there will be a park named after Sobyanin, and they will raise some money on this. Also, by the way, supposedly "stalls" in Moscow were demolished, huge shopping centers.
          No purity of nature is a sacred thing, just do not spit on the past, otherwise you never know what will fly from there.
