PUSSIES!

Those Russians aren't what they used to be.

Only a few decades ago, these guys where able to pick up a radioactive rod from a Nuclear reactor  without getting sick, hold their breaths for weeks in a suncken submarine, go months without food and still feel happy. AND NOW THEY DIE BECAUSE OF A BIT OF SMOKE?!!?

Russia's Urals city of Ozersk is surrounded with our best energy and thoughts sparing it from catastrophe and returning it to perfect radiant health.

I think Puttin is creating some extra parking space for the new Starbuck branches. Their slogan to hit the market will be:

"Roasted locally, for, by and with the local people!"

Worst heat wave in 1,000 yrs?, temps are CLOSE to 93*F, in Moscow.

They are saving their crops, and we are sending them billion of tons of wheat, so we can hit the American consumers for $3.00 a loaf bread.

We cannot save ourselves, bit we continue to save the world........avowed enemies.

Instead of sending them wheat, we should send them Californian Wheed.

You got to cling to whatever hope you've got left (re GW):

Floods in Germany, Poland and Czech republic, besides Pakistan (in Summer!);

Hundreds of children dead from cold in Peru;

Millions of fish dead from cold in Bolivian rivers and lakes;

Rain in the Sahel;

Worst snow fall in a decade in RGS and SC, Brazil;

Pythons and alligators dead from cold in Florida;

Atoll islands growing;

Definitely GW...

For an area that's as close to the Arctic circle as some parts of Alaska, the climate of Moscow this summer resembles Dallas, Texas (this includes the nasty thermal inversions that traps toxic smoke/pollution).

The only exception here is that most Moscow residents don't have air conditioning.  Little wonder daily mortality figures are up there.

There's something else going on.

I have no idea what it is, perhaps drought?

We burn off 200,000 acres a year in the US due to fires soooooo ... there's something else going on.

I have a hint, but I have been told by the big energy lobbyists that it is a mirage.  They told me this happens all the time.  So that is good to clear out 100sq mi of the Amazon.

It would be a like a snow storm in Mexico City. They weren't prepared for the temperatures to break a thousand year record. They aren't prepared for the worst yet to come, either.

I am writing this from the north eastern part of Moscow as of 7 pm local time (11 am New York). SmoKe (it was NEVER smoG) is gone, as far as I can see, almost not felt in the air.

It is somewhat tough for the Moscovites out there as it is unusually hot for unconventionally long this time of the year, and very few appartments (let alone public places and facilities, such as subway and bus traffic) are equipped with air conditioning (no use in the past).

Forecast says we get fresh air tomorrow, and temperatures will subside

The interesting part is that northern lower 48 states have been a bit unusually warm this year as well.  Though we have A/C, there is obviously something major going on with the climate this year.  Never mind how Pakistan and China are having record rain falls in many areas this past month. Records were meant to be broken.  Is this another shot across the bow of the USS Human Survival, or a shot into the side?

Thanks for the update... and I'm very glad to hear that temperatures are expected to go back closer to seasonal.  This almost reminds me of what happened in Chicago (more than) several years back...

Don't believe posters on ZH who claim to be at the source reporting back that things are fine. These people are either lying or just too scared to open their eyes.
