Adaptation and Advantage: The New Language of the Anthropocene

 

Russia announced that it will be adapting its economy and taking advantage of the increase in temperature due to climate change and global warming.

From the article:

Russia has published a plan to adapt its economy and population to climate change, aiming to mitigate damage but also “use the advantages” of warmer temperatures.

The document, published on the government’s website on Saturday, outlines a plan of action and acknowledges changes to the climate are having a “prominent and increasing effect” on socioeconomic development, people’s lives, health and industry.

Russia is warming 2.5 times faster than the planet as a whole, on average, and the two-year “first stage” plan is an indication the government officially recognises this as a problem, even though Vladimir Putin denies human activity is the cause…

Moscow formally adopted the Paris climate accord in September last year and criticised the US withdrawal from the pact.
