Impossible to deny climate change when disasters became ‘almost a norm' — Putin

Asia's Tech News Daily

The Russian president stressed that "we can keep having scientific discussions about the mechanisms of the ongoing processes, but it is impossible to deny that these processes worsen and that something must be done about it"

SOCHI, October 21. /TASS/. Natural cataclysms have become “almost a norm” in the modern world and it is impossible to deny climate deformations and the degradation of the environment today, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.

“Climate deformation and degradation of the environment have become so apparent that even the most careless bystanders cannot brush them aside. We can keep having scientific discussions about the mechanisms of the ongoing processes, but it is impossible to deny that these processes worsen and that something must be done about it. Natural disasters — droughts, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis — have become almost a norm,” he said.
