Warm winter deprives our country's armed forces of a natural military advantage.


Climate change is a threat to national security


Look at the weather: winter, but no snow at all. This is unusual for Russia. For millennia, the winter climate was rather severe in our country. Many people still have pictures in their memory that it was impossible to go out into the street just a few decades ago without wrapping up in fur coats and sheepskin coats. An icy wind burned his face and made him cover him with a glove. It was simply impossible to do without a fur hat in the winter, and drifts, even in big cities, grew to a height of several meters. The snow crunched underfoot, clogged in boots, it was difficult to walk along the sidewalks without slipping.



And where is our cold now?

To see where our relatives and our usual cold weather are “walking” now, just look at the headlines News; “Record cold weather is coming in the USA: frost is expected to reach –50”; “An abnormal cold in Peru. Emergency mode introduced ”; “Snow in Egypt: For the First Time in 100 Years of a Pyramid in the Snow”; “In South Africa, abnormal snow: a state of emergency has been introduced”; "Siberian cold in Europe froze the Eiffel Tower" ...

Obviously, at a time when we are warm, they are cold. It was not so cold at the same time everywhere. There was just a redistribution of temperature: the low temperature left Russia and spread to other regions. Thus, it is safe to say that the English now, instead of us, “enjoy” our icy wind, while the Egyptians play our snowballs.



Why has the weather changed so drastically in our area?

Now they talk a lot about the artificial influence on the climate, someone allegedly tries to influence him with the help of modern technologies. This may be indicated by the fact that the climate has changed quite abruptly, there was no “intermediate period”.

Speaking of attempts to manipulate the climate, it is necessary to find out who can benefit from this. For the application of such technologies, a country may want, on the one hand, to send trouble to another country, and on the other, to save itself from unpleasant weather phenomena.

For the first time, the targeted impact on the climate of our country was talked about in 2010, when the African heat fell on the central region. Besides, it was then that Moscow was wrapped in smog.

http://top.rbc.ru/wildworld/01/08/2010/444038.shtml

At about the same time, in some regions, the most real tornadoes and tornadoes began to pass, which were completely alien to those regions. No one remembers such natural phenomena there, and for the whole history these edges of such phenomena were not recorded.



When specifying the reasons for the change in the average temperature in our country, many point to the HAARP system located in Alaska.
“HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program - High Frequency Exposure Ionosphere Investigation Program) is an American research project on the ionosphere and aurora. The project was launched in the spring of 1997, in Gakon, Alaska. ” There are many such stations, they are located in other places.

In addition, there are other ways to influence the climate, for example, spraying various substances into the atmosphere, underground explosions of great power for provoking tsunamis and earthquakes, dumping active substances from airplanes, such as during the dispersal of clouds over Moscow.

A major role is played by the Gulf Stream. For some reason, people forget about him to mention in the articles on climate change, although it is thanks to him that the climate is formed exactly as it is. Attempts to change the course of this tide would lead to dramatic changes in climate. Judging by the latest research, it is clear that, perhaps, such attempts are also being made.

Winter and the conquerors

Throughout history, low temperature and snow were the obstacles to the conquerors, to which our troops were prepared, and turned out to be an unprepared enemy. During the invasion of our territory, winter gave the enemy a lot of trouble, sometimes fatal for them.

“General Frost” played a significant role even during the invasion of the Swedish army in the time of Peter the Great, especially in the 1708 year. Winter that year was the coldest in the last 500 years, and the enemy army with the help of our troops was deprived of supplies and housing, due to which it suffered heavy losses.

In 1812, another invasion came to our country - this time under the leadership of Napoleon, at that time it was the strongest army in the world. Then the Russian troops could use their resistance to cold as an advantage in the rout of the heat-loving French. Subsequently, describing the reasons for their failures, Napoleon and his commanders pointed to the Russian frost as the main obstacle in their path. Then the expression “General Frost” appeared in newspaper notes when describing the experienced hardships of the French troops from the coming cold weather.



The lack of warm clothing from the Nazis in the 1941-1945 war also had its effect on the enemy. The frost was ruining the troops, while advancing the army, difficult German mechanisms refused to work, the equipment could not pass through deep snow, the lubricant froze. Then the expression "General Frost" reappeared again.

What if the ultimate goal of climate change in Russia is to get rid of unusual conditions in the conduct of hostilities by foreign armies? In addition, at the same time you can try to transfer the devastating tornadoes and storms from your country to others.

Of course, the role of the Russian winter in the failures of the armies that invaded Russia is not the key, as many historians later challenged Napoleon’s statement about the cold as an insurmountable obstacle, because the frost did not fall below –10. Only after the defeat of Napoleon’s army did its remnants suffer more severe cold when almost all of them froze and could not return to France.

Nevertheless, there is no doubt that low temperature, snow and other unpleasant surprises of the winter weather have always caused great damage to the enemy army. They slow down the advancement of the army, require more preparation for the supply of warm clothing and frost-resistant materials and mechanisms, significantly increasing the cost of preparing the invasion. At the same time, for the Russian army, they are quite familiar.

At present, this advantage of our army is fading away. The enemy troops invading us will no longer have to attack under conditions unfamiliar to them, and it will be possible to move quite comfortably at a positive temperature.

Is this not what potential climate change lovers are seeking? Perhaps remembering the experience of Napoleon, the Germans and the Teutons, they get scared of winter much more than it can be assumed ...

    "Warm winter deprives the armed forces of our country of natural military advantage"

    But is it really ???
    1. There is a saving in energy resources.
    2. The incidence of acute respiratory infections is minimized.
    3. reduced costs in the system of housing and communal services to combat snow.
    4. more stable road situation
    5. And perhaps most importantly, the Americans (and other "brothers") are inflicted by nature colossal material damage.
    Therefore, it’s not so bad wink

      I totally agree. Plus I will add that if a potential enemy has to build houses with full walls (not of plywood), "burn" as much money as we do in stoves and boiler furnaces and experience all the real delights of our winter. Maybe they won't want to fight?

        In-in, hence the heap of all kinds of competitive advantages in the economy. Both Europeans and Americans live at the latitude of Sochi and lower (in temperature)) and their goods are much more competitive in price, and resources for heating are invested, and not, as you correctly noted, "burned in a furnace."

        Something also does not believe in the nonsense of the Americans - it means earthly paradise for us, and winter itself is fierce. The meaning with the army somehow slipped away - either we were not arming with it, or it wasn’t worth it at all.

    I don't understand the author's pessimism. All + weather Euro-America to us, and "-". They have their own tanks - they simply won't start airplanes in severe frosts, they won't fly. In addition, we must not forget that our road continues to "mine" the roads with holes and bumps - the enemy will definitely not get through. P.S. Napoleon complained about the frost as a force majeure. He will not complain about Kutuzov, after all, a "great strategist", damn it.

      I agree! And then they got it already to say that it was not the Russian army that won, but some circumstances, the commander, especially the western one, would never admit defeat. Think for yourself, the French or Germans that have never been to Russia and did not know what frosts are here? Yes, they only had spies before the invasion had a whole army. The fascists really froze, but as a result of the actions of our partisans and the army, which deprived them of supplies, supplies of warm clothes and fuel. And at the expense of technology, did everything work for them worse than ours, or do you want to say that German cars will not start in the cold?
      And finally, look at the number of our victories in the summer and winter in the Second World War, and draw a conclusion about the role of General Moroz.

So blame the frost, this is such a tradition of Western interventionists, And really, do not blame the Russians for their courage?

    What is going on with the weather? What is the cause of current climate anomalies?
    The changes that are taking place are quite expected and explainable, said Vladimir Klimenko, head of the laboratory of global energy problems at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute, climatologist:

    - Actually, weather and climate are characterized by anomalies, just now they are somewhat larger than usual. But this is within the normal range (!!!). Thirty years are the norm for the climate. And how the climate has changed, it is quite well known on the scale of centuries and even millennia. Over the past few weeks, much emphasis has been placed on the cold in the United States. However, they do not go beyond what has been observed here in the last 150 years, during which continuous meteorological observations are conducted in the United States over a fairly large territory.

    If you believe this statement by a climate specialist, then just what we observe today with climate is NORM. So, you don’t need to be hysterical about this, they say who can save, because of the climate we will soon end! Even if, due to climate anomalies, there is a threat to national security, do we have few means and ways to neutralize this threat? Or is our main bet now not on the General Staff with the Ministry of Defense, but on General Frost?

    Quote from the article: "For millennia, our climate in winter has been quite harsh."

    The question is, is the author immortal or something? Lives for millennia? Then probably he knows better. How do we know how nature cycles are organized? For example, my grandmother struck me on the bus - she goes and argues: It will snow or how (at the end of November it was), and he answers his own question - I remember saying how in 1953 (he mentally took off his grandmother's hat), before the New Year it was the same, and then how the snow fell, how the frosts hit.
    And about the advantages (fighting), in what it probably is. But the armies are different now. God forbid, of course, but if anything, enemies in "bathing suits" will definitely not come to us.
    About HAARP this one is already sore. In Alaska, it has not been working for a long time (an area for flights is open). The author says that there are many such installations around the world, but does not say where. The location of HAARP in Alaska is not a whim. A clearly calculated place. Installations are a bit similar to HAARP, but there is one such as in Alaska.
    About chemical trails (yes there is), but (according to rumors) foreign airlines were ultimately stated that if the fact of emission of other chemicals and reagents into the atmosphere along with exhaust gases is noticed. Flights will be prohibited.
    Anyway, hoping that FROST will defeat the enemies is ridiculous and absurd.

    For reference, we were shouted at the melting of polar ice and icebergs. Like global warming. And then figax, and it turned out that since 2005, the polar ice has recovered, moreover, it has increased by 40% more than it was. Scientists are honest, we don’t know why. And now they are hysterically preparing a new theory, now about global cooling. And how can you believe it? You gentlemen, scientists are determined.
    But seriously, then nifiga we do not know the mechanisms of nature. The same goes for carbon dioxide. At first, with increasing carbon dioxide emissions, the temperature also increased (a monitoring station in Chile is monitoring). And now clap, carbon dioxide is growing (emission), and the temperature has stopped (rising). And again, how so, and again theories and conjectures.

    I don’t agree at all, if the climate becomes more favorable in our territory there will be a giant cluster of agricultural producers, this is an additional income in the conditions of problems with the agricultural sector where it is colder, in addition, you can count on a significant population growth.
    General frost freezes everyone equally, and I don’t remember that he helped in the main battles of the Second World War, statistics again do not confirm the importance of frost in the defense of Russia.
    We can definitely say that with increasing temperature our territories become more attractive for potential aggressors, but for that we and the armed forces.

      That's right. General Frost has no allies. Colonel Rasputitsa and Major Zaraza with General Moroz do not dock their plans. Losses from frost in 1812. in our army were significant. Less than the French, but significant.
      But changing the image of "frosty Russia" is not worth it. Let them be afraid.

      In the film "Independence Day", which tells about the salvation of the Earth from aliens by the forces of valiant Americans, the snow-covered headquarters of the Russians appears in the episodes. Naturally, the entire command is sitting in earflaps and drinking vodka, and outside the window through the snowy shroud one can see the domes of churches. It is worth noting that the events of the tape unfold on the US Independence Day, which is celebrated on July 4.

          Permafrost, which will no longer be eternal. It would take a century, if not several, to drain the swamps that appeared.

          And why all of a sudden when the permafrost melts, swamps appear? Permafrost is a rock having a negative temperature. Naturally, the water that is in them turns into ice. When thawing, the ice goes into water. And that’s it. Where there were rocks, nothing will change at all, there is little water in them. In clayey rocks, only the bearing capacity changes, the swampiness remains the same as it was. For sandy rocks, in which when thawing resumes the movement of water and they cease to be water-resistant, waterlogging will decrease. Even if the climate really gets so warm that the permafrost melts, this process will stretch for hundreds of years and will not be catastrophic.

            The ice content in frozen rocks varies from a few percent to 90%.
            In the permafrost zone, groundwater is in the form of ice; its depth sometimes exceeds 1 000 meters.

            The ice will melt gradually. Below the ice will not let the water go. And higher water, due to its heat capacity, will prevent further thawing of permafrost.
            It all depends on the terrain. In some areas where the permafrost is not deep, water will leave. But it will also take time.

    The climate is changing and not for the better. I remember in childhood, even before school, all summer we did not know what shoes are. After the rain, they ran through the puddles, the water in them was warm. Cucumbers and tomatoes (in the Tver region) grew without any films. But winters were colder and there was more snow, thaws were very rare. Now, try the water after the summer rain, it's cold. So climate change is happening over time, it will be even more noticeable. But the fact that the cold winters helped us to beat the enemy is nonsense, we beat them always and in any weather. The downside from the warming will be very big. We must not forget that our northern cities are located on permafrost. And if the ground starts to melt, the houses may "float", that is what one should be afraid of.

    There have been such sudden zigzag changes in the climate before. For example, in 1965, all December and practically January on the European territory of the USSR was a plus temperature. And in 1987 in Ukraine it was possible to sow already at the beginning of February. In addition, frosts on the American continent are not that great. Remember, we have the temperature scale in Celsius, and in the USA it is Fahrenheit. A -35 Fahrenheit, this is a little more than -10 Celsius. As for the author of the article, he exaggerates too much, especially in his discussions about "General Frost" during the Second World War: for example, the autumn rains of the fascist troops on Moscow stopped , which turned the roads into impassable and the Nazis could not do anything about it, and the frosts that followed again allowed the offensive. As we can see, the Germans only won from the onset of frost. And then, well, the German tanks used lubricant and fuel, and on On the contrary, when the Soviet offensive near Moscow began, the deep snow cover slowed down the advance of the troops and was beneficial to the Germans. Apparently the author wants to say that the French and Germans were not defeated by Russian and Soviet soldiers and officers , and cold and snow. A kind of leveling and belittling the feat of our ancestors, fathers and grandfathers. Article minus.

    The climate has a certain cycle. Regarding the "heat", they recalled 1953 above and I read that in the chronicle of the times of Ivan the Terrible (somewhere in the middle of his reign) it is written: the cows were "driven" into the field at the end of February. So that the cows were allowed to graze, the grass must still grow.
    All the invaders who came to us hoped to "end" the wars before the cold weather and did not prepare for winter. Finnish showed that we also had big problems because of the frost. In a modern (big) war, the winner is the one who can be the first to destroy the command and control of the enemy.

      You exaggerate a little. I do not mind the snow on the road. Now another thing, the snow is cleaned right away, but at the same time it is raked into heaps on the roadsides that cover 2/3 of the carriageway, and these heaps are removed at best, after 2 weeks, at worst - until it melts itself (as this year ) On a narrow road, well, it’s just very uncomfortable, especially if it’s dark.

          If you take the topic a little more seriously, then: "When specifying the reasons for the change in the average temperature in our country, many point to the HAARP system located in Alaska." And this system did not exist under Ivan the Terrible, when the Moscow River was covered with ice in September, when under Godunov there were two cold and rainy summers in succession, which led to hunger, rebellion, and unrest. There was no system in 1812, when October turned out to be terribly cold for the French in Moscow, when in November 1941, unexpectedly for the Germans near Moscow, there were frosts of -20. Fluctuations in climatic parameters are very large, our zone is considered a zone of risky farming. So we were "lucky".

    Nonsense, not an article!

    We know little about climate and its changes. Regular observations of weather forecasters are not even one and a half centuries.

    Regarding the wet winter - I will quote Pushkin: "... the snow fell only in January." ("Eugene Onegin").

    Do not forget about the Julian calendar! It turns out that snow could fall both in mid-January and in February (!!!) in a new style.

    About "General Frost" is a myth cultivated by our enemies, chosen as an excuse.

    That in 1812, that during the Great Patriotic War, our troops suffered from frosts as well as enemies. Well, maybe thanks to warm clothes it was a little easier.

    For some reason, many believe that during the cold they suffer from the cold.

    And the fact that the body needs more energy (calories), and therefore more food, is forgotten for some reason.

    What about water? To get water in cold weather is a problem. From snow and ice water you can get sick.

    And to melt water, energy is also needed.

    So - a lot of questions to the author's arguments.

There is no need to refer to frost here. And besides, rubbing in the metropolis is light-heat-water and there is no need to fight, the population will be halved for natural reasons during the very first Russian winter. And on whose side will "General Moroz" be? And the sidewalks in Vladivostok are not cleaned to this day, so in this regard, everything is the same.

    Yes, there were different winters in the history of Russia. Both warm and frosty. Much depends on the "schedule" of solar activity. A kind of "sinusoid". Here, at least remember A.S. Pushkin ("Eugene Onegin"): "That year the autumn weather. It stood for a long time in the yard, Waited for winter, waited for nature, Snow fell only in January, On the third in the night ...". Those. it was so.
