Lincoln Green writes ...

"In what sounds like an episode from Philip Pullman’s fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials, a mass invasion of polar bears caused Russian authorities to declare a state of emergency yesterday in parts of Novaya Zemlya, a large group of islands in the Arctic Ocean north of the Russian mainland.

Global warming has greatly reduced the amount of Arctic sea ice, forcing polar bears to spend more time on land hunting for food, with starvation threatening many of them. Several dozen bears are roaming near Novaya Zemlya’s main settlement Belushya Guba (human population 1,900) due to edible wastes in its trash. The Russian news agency TASS reports that six to ten of the bears are now in Belushya Guba at all times, RFE/RL says that the bears have been reported to enter homes and government buildings and even to attack people, and the BBC reports that five bears are occupying part of the military garrison’s territory.

Polar bears are protected in Novaya Zemlya and the Russian environmental agency has not issued special permits to shoot the bears, which do not seem to fear flares, sirens, or police dogs. Extra fences have been installed near kindergartens, and special vehicles are being used to deliver employees and the military to their workplaces."

Didn’t they sell the oil that was burned to produce global warming?

Russia is now running at a deficit again - much like it did before the fall of the Soviet Union.

The reason for this is that in order for Russia's economy to function their oil would have to sell between $80 to $100 dollars per barrel.
However, oil sells for ~ $58.00 per barrel.

We (the U.S. ) are now the largest producer of oil, surpassing Saudi Arabia.
