The video shows a train battling through a surging flames and smoke in Primorsky region. The footage supplied to Prima Media was filmed on 27 February. Fire and smoke are so strong on the stretch between Guberovo and Lastochka stations that for some time the train cannot be seen.

Flames were several metres high, it was reported.  Smoke is threatening the city of Vladivostok, the terminus of the Trans-Siberian railway.

Wildfires exceed 212,000 hectares in 2019. Some 77,000 hectare are forest. 

A special anti-fire regime/has been introduced in 10 municipalities: Khasansky, Partizansky, Lazovsky, Khankaisky, Kavalerovsky, Olginsky, Nadezhdinsky, Oktyabrsky, Ussuryisky and Dalnegorsky.

A lack of snow in the Russian Far East is seen as a cause of the early wildfires.

Traffic jammed in ice as three URAL trucks blocked on winter road

By The Siberian Times

Lorries sunk in Tumara River because ice was not as thick as it looked.

Stuck in ice, two trucks of a local silver mining company got trapped more than a month ago. Drivers have to live nearby as they keep trying to remove their vehicles

Such accidents are a ‘nightmare for Northern truckers’. The drivers are now  living right next to their vehicles on the ice. The trucks from a silver mining company were crossing the river fully loaded with сalcium hydroxide.

The accident was 440 km north of the region’s capital Yakutsk, in Kobyaysky ulus (district). The cargo didn’t get damaged and has been since gradually removed to lighten the load; oil leaked into water.

Heavy trucks of silver mining company in Yakutia get stuck in ice of river Tumara

How can the trucks be pulled out? Northern truckers have their own method and it depends on temperatures falling not rising. They dice ice cubes around the truck gradually building an ice ramp. Then it is hooked up with a cable from the shore and dragged out. But if the temperature warms, the trucks will sink further into the water.

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
