Russia is trolling the West in the Arctic by Ruslan Ostashko.
Translated and subtitled by Eugenia
I continue to keep tabs on the Arctic race, which Washington had lost before it even began, and I am happy to report that Russia has launched a new icebreaker. The ship “Andrei Vilkitsky” is described as “dancing” because of its high maneuverability.
When America’s official position is that climate change is a hoax, it is not surprising that America would be slow to react to the opportunities created by a warmer arctic during climate change. When you can’t even say the words climate change due to the orders of the Great Leader, then its hard to anticipate and plan to take advantage of the effects of climate change.
While I agree to a point on “Tangerine Reagan” attempting to control the climate debate, its still a moot point. The opposite side of the “debate” fail to realize and/or understand the implication of HAARP and other non-American players actively deploying ionospheric heaters. Until both sides of the argument drop the political bias and recognize that governments around the planet are implementing these technologies semi-privately while publicly calling for trillions of dollars in carbon taxes and the like, its a circle jerk.
A salient fact to consider when considering the “global warming” war on ordinary people run by the green elite are the Vostok core samples. They clearly demonstrate that the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere rises after the temperature rises and falls after the temperature falls. There have been all sorts of over-paid shills tying themselves up in knots of complex rhetoric featuring bizarre twisted logic-free sophistry attempting to explain this “problem” away. That CO2 lags temperature utterly destroys the anthropogenic global warming theory right from inception. The theory is shown up for what it is, a base criminal hoax perpetrated by the green elite upon everyone else.
President Trump is right to get the USA out of the Paris “Agreement” (which is a document well worth the effort to obtain and reading, as so few actually know what it demands).
Questions. Where is it that the President of the USA has attempted to “control the climate debate”? He has merely taken the USA out of the Paris nonsense and stated that it was a bad deal for the people of the USA (which it was). He has commented that he does not support the global warming political story. Can you explain when he “controlled the climate debate”? Further, is it really a debate at all when ordinary people are being savagely taxed, having their life-styles restricted and choices denied along with their expectations of the future curtailed by the bullying, hectoring, controlling ideologies of the green elite? No, that is not a debate at all. That is an imposition. Away with it!
Meanwhile, it is good to see the Russians setting out to develop their Northern regions and resources. Nothing bad about that at all. The technology, work, opportunities, experience and knowledge they are gaining will pay them huge dividends in the future.
Note that China is interested in getting much more active in the Arctic. One would expect the Canadians to have some interest in the Arctic also, but they do not seem to be doing much new at all. Is that due to poor reporting or are they not really in a position to do very much?
Climate change is not a hoax, only it’s interpretations. For years we have been listening about “global warming”, caused by “human” activities. Is this really the case ? We also have the opposite view that we are in fact getting global cooling, caused by changes in the performance of the sun, which happens periodically and has nothing to do with human activities. Before we get global cooling (a mini ice age), we shall get a brief period of global warming, after which global cooling sets in.
Climate has always changed – just ask a geologist.
The problem is that “Global Warming” – as the protesters in France have discovered – is just a mechanism for extracting more taxes from the people. They raised the taxes on fuels everyone uses – except for jet fuel for their private jets. :)
There is plenty of evidence that due to solar inactivity, the earth has been cooling down for several years now.
Climate change fraud you mean. Look up the Eddy Solar Minimum and Professor Valentina Zharkova and her 100,000 year solar cycle prior to spewing that propaganda
The Climate Debate is going to change completely as evidence is mounting it is not man made. Only in 2018 more than 500 scientific papers, published in scientific journal and mgazines, supports the view that there’s no scientific evidence tha human activity changes climate in a world scale. We are heading to significant climate changes but not man made ones. It’s the solar activity right now that is driving the changes. The political agenda of the debate is pushed by the Green Energy Big Businesses. It’s a making money SCAM.
As the Soviets, so the Murknz fakeleaders have become paralyzed by ideology and circumstance. And ordinary Americans have zero power to change the situation…they have not forgotten how to work, but they have no reason to work well…wages are too low to live well, and badly educated, and in debt, so people act accordingly… Sadly, logic suggests that this is the time for US persons to steal what they can before a flood…steal? Ok polite form…”salvage”.
I made my living in the basic trades of industrial economy, foundries and mills, when we worked hard and well…in union shops. The last 20 years almost every field job (power stations turbines, hydroelectric and chemical industries) almost every job was either re-work because of poor previous work, or demolition jobs… I watched it from the beginning…when the US began to liquidate her own steel mills…in the 1970’s…Kaiser in Fontana went to China… I watched. At the time I was a steelworker Union member…
I understand that NASA asked Ru to build a lunar- Soyuz…and NASA has to buy rocket motors from Ru…
It ain’t jus’ icebreakers… it’s the guts of the ship…and the people. I still occasionally chat with the men I used to do turbine work with, some are not yet retired…and they tell me that it’s worse than ever.
And look at the pictures of American crowds, films of public spaces from the 50’s and 60’s… Then…and now.
The people were healthy…and now? A doctor magically teleported from 1960 would see immediately – these people are sick…collectively sick…something in the water? The air? Ah! The food! Poison? All of the above? Yup!
They say dawn follows night…I hope so, but fear what devastation will be illuminated?
The Ruskie icebreaker is indeed a beautiful ship…as a class IB’s are worth taking a look at…they are exceedingly difficult and complex machines. Steel may seem rigid and strong, but this is not the case, it’s more like putty or lead when the structure is big. Very flexible, and bendy and full of tiny fissures, cracks – that grow. And sometimes sink ships.

Thanks to Eugenia for the translation and sub-titles.
Remarkable sarcastic humor. The US won’t send its lone ship but is sending warships to try to “plant the flag” in a zone where it holds small claim. Always the Hegemon.
Maybe their plan for navigation is to shoot their way through the ice pack.
The US Navy is quite rational when they refuse to send Capitol Ships too far North, recently a carrier…as they’re properly afraid they’d get stuck in the ice and have to beg Ivan for help…bad optics? No? Reality.
It’s interesting to speculate what ice would do to sonar dome in bow…but I am very sure it’s not pretty…as to the sexy variablepitch props the navy likes…don’t ask.
I hear that discipline is bad, and skill levels low, and the ships have female enlisted and officers, and promotion does not closely correlate to ability… Friends retired when they put women on-board…
It’s an obsolete navy with more admirals than ships…
This begs the question of what it’s for…but typically obsolete ships are used for sinking…
Later the Japanese helped by sinking more obsolete battleships. Very well done copy of the British job at Taranto…with oriental nuance though, and style! By the way, the Brits seem to have arranged for Yamamoto to get leaked/stolen documents that decided him to attack…
The US has given up arctic power, more or less, as she is so busy devouring herself and so poor that it’s simply not going to happen that she’ll build out of this anytime soon. They would have to tool up over a long time, probably build new yards…train new tradesmen…and some of the stuff they’d need takes years to get – like special reduction gears and castings…this stuff often has no domestic source…a few years ago I was involved in flying a hydro-turbine “wheel” – a steel casting about 21 feet in diameter – flying that! to Canada to get it machined (the US has no lathe big enough now). In Canada they took off an incredible several inches too much…flew it home to the powerhouse, snaked in through the tunnels and all that stuff, and then the engineer noticed it was way too small…the “seal” is pretty tight, about a thumbnail thickness…so back to the airplane (a 747!), back to Canada, build up the cut ( an incredible amount of work!) re-machine, re fly, reinstall… Last I heard it still doesn’t run… This is how it looks when Power is in decline.
“By the way, the Brits seem to have arranged for Yamamoto to get leaked/stolen documents that decided him to attack…” AFAIK, this statement is complete nonsense.
1. Admiral Yamamoto did not sit on whatever council decided to go to war, and historians agree that Yamamoto would not have chosen , in his own words, “to awaken the sleeping giant.”
2. I know of no one who ever claimed secret British documents were “leaked” to anyone in the pre-1942 Japanese government.
These are extraordinary claims. Do you have any sources to back them up ?
Solar activity is at a low presently. Few sunspots…. This lack of sunspots is indicative of reduced solar output and hence cooling (which is what has been in process since ~1998). Many climatologists are concerned that the Earth is heading into a new ice age. I don’t like the sound of that, but the evidence seems to support them in that contention. Yuck! Warmer is better I reckon.
Well, the human being may be but a visitor on this earth, or a raper of resources, or an indifferent sloth, or a bountiful, magnanimous creative spirit, but whatever he or she may be, the heart and mind remains some picture of the sun, of light and warmth.
Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.
Not if you are paying Canadian carbon taxes for global warming er I mean climate change.
