''The Sea Says SOS''
« on: December 18, 2018, 12:14:55 PM »
I recently found an interesting research. According to studies, 45 % of the air pollution in the Murmansk region is caused by transboundary transport. This region in the North of Russia annually receives 2.4 times more nitrogen compounds from Norway than Vice versa. Sounds freaky, yeah? But here is what I’ve found: the Russian ecological organization “The nature and the youth” has hold an educational campaign in Murmans called “The Sea says SOS”. Ecologists have noticed that the greatest harm to the ecological situation is caused by the nearest Russia’s northern neighbor – Norway! Its industrial enterprises dump waste into the Barents sea, causing irreparable harm to Russian water bodies. Environmentalists raise the alarm, noting that all their work goes to the dogs because of the “Norwegians’ chemical attacks”.

Of course, Russia is not an example of a environmentally-friendly country, but, to be frank, it bears the stamp of truth. Especially after the latest figures that Norway is not any more in the top of the environmentally-friendly countries.

This reads as more of a politically biased attack than anything scientific.
