4:33 am
raging in russian floods devastating pakistan people are lost as to what's causing these catastrophes are to talk to the prominent russian physicist alexander ginsburg who says the only force to blame is mother nature herself. recent climatic chaos has caused many conspiracy theories to wonder what could possibly be behind the climatic events that are causing worldwide attention to talk a little bit more about whether there is any truth to the serious and what is really causing our planet to behave in such a way i'm now joined by dr alexander ginsburg who will be talking to r.t. about those problems stopped but thank you so much for talking to us now these conspiracy theories that have recently flooded the internet about how there's a geophysical weapon that somebody is testing that is causing all of these problems
4:34 am
they are icelandic volcano. floods in pakistan the heat in russia is that true. so it's an interesting question that comes up at least every few years five years ago when hurricane katrina struck the u.s. sure there was a lot of noise perhaps more of it in the western hemisphere than in europe in russia but people started saying that katrina was the result of russian jew physical weapon tests and that nothing would have happened if it wasn't for the evil empire which meant to the former soviet union and wouldn't be russia. this year since europe russia pakistan and china to a degree been affected by disasters this incision hungry whistleblowers came up with a different theory and they're saying these disasters are results of retaliation from the u.s. that perhaps the u.s. wanted to strike pakistan and accidently hit russia and europe. in any case my
4:35 am
answer to your question is no it was not caused by geophysical weapons we welcome i say this because so far there is no evidence in open media sources or licensed scientific magazines that mankind is capable of using nature in such a way the amount of energy without it. the exact is far too small to affect energy streams in the atmosphere and the oceans so as to use those streams as a weapon that i have no scientific evidence that the disasters could have been caused by climate weapon or geophysical weapon or the shasta but it is true that countries are working towards somehow controlling or affecting the weather isn't that what scientists of many countries have always been interested in the. yes we do work on projects of that kind ways to use where the control techniques can be different there are peaceful applications such as dispersing clouds and making sure that weather is good at red square parades i suspect this isn't only practiced in
4:36 am
russia but in other countries as well. sylvia to authorities used where the control techniques and quite successfully to cause avalanches and hail storms and places where they needed them or drive focus away from airports it's easy to see from what i said that all weather control technology is aimed at controlling clouds and fog liquids in the atmosphere. the latest trend in weather control is to use finely divided cement loads of cement cause rain when dumped into clouds and can be used to settle for. the physics at the core of those two person says at the same cement causes the water particles in the clouds and fog to become bigger. now for better or for worse we have no means of affecting weather other than enlarging water particles in folks and clouds and turning ice particles into water to turn hale into rain these methods were introduced to most one hundred years ago and we have
4:37 am
not made any breakthrough since although what we do have we use successfully. so then what is causing all this climatic chaos the volcano in iceland the abnormal heat in russia floods in pakistan what is the cause behind all of these things gotten back. where did this summer disasters in russia europe and pakistan come from well they didn't really come from anywhere situations like this develop in the atmosphere once every few years we call them blocking situations like they are characterized by a cycle and the cycle and pair of equal strength facing one another and the cyclon is a massive air spinning one way and producing to standing streams of air. in summer and winter this gives a clear sky it also makes the summers hotter now when we have a pack insisting of a strong cycle and a strong anti cycling as the case is this summer over russia and europe this leads
4:38 am
to a so-called blocking situation during which that can become very stable this pair will sustain itself until it gets tired. we'd have to either wait for that or for autumn to come so that the strong and the cycle would run out of the solar energy it is sustained by. my point is that there is nothing extraordinary about what we are seeing this summer from the meteorological point of view the only thing that is out of the ordinary is how strong the anti cycling in the cycling are. what's important to understand is that cycling's are not actually created by anything it is the cycling itself that is the reason for a change in atmospheric process is the cycling is the reason not a consequence of the consequences of the site learn i want we are dealing with now . it's so to the people who would say that. those conditions are a result of global warming would you say that they are mistaken or that they are
4:39 am
correct you don't you little boy neither this nor that and there is solid ground. for that sidelines in europe and the cyclons in russia are not direct consequences of global warming it's a regular phenomenon. but as i mentioned before the situation is lasting too long as for global warming people are arguing now whether it is natural or manmade it exists natural global warming is pretty much the same across the globe it should be getting warmer everywhere and more or less equally or at least proportionally but if global warming is due to the greenhouse effect warming at low or tropical latitudes is much less than woman at high or polar latitude depending on hemisphere in the north or in the south if the temperature difference decreases the force which could get cyclons and anti cyclons apart and eliminate the blocking decreases as well. so in this respect i cannot insist that it's a direct consequence of global manmade warming but as we see it the resolution of
4:40 am
such booking situations becomes more and more complicated it's on that they mentioned the so-called greenhouse gas emissions do you think that the kyoto protocol actually helps with carbon greenhouse gas emissions and should everybody sign it like countries that have so far refused to sign it for example do they need to does it actually help i've asked and we've thought dealings but all day as we are doing something to nature which nature itself has not been doing before we have to fight it therefore all the efforts to cut greenhouse emissions to fight to digitise nation to growth forests emitting greenhouse effect and so on very much welcome. on the other hand sometimes excessively enthusiastic green activists and other ecologists shout from the rooftops that nuclear energy must not be used as well as solar energy and wind energy because infrasound effect animals
4:41 am
and fossil fuels are simply out of the question. but they all flying to convince his dr to conferences and sit in their offices not in villages and they fight against all these factors there was a summit in copenhagen that didn't produce any particular results i was asked a good question about it once they told me it came to naught to which i replied that it actually produce great results what results they ask me the heads of one hundred twenty countries came together to see that they couldn't do anything this is a great result some of them started thinking about it differently they went there to sign documents and reach agreements but they couldn't. they certainly haven't agreed on anything what this showed us is that we need to step up our efforts it showed us that climate problems should be discussed at summits copenhagen was the first port internet sense. mentioned cup and. the fact that leaders of countries will too. solve the matters themselves but there have been people that
4:42 am
have said that it would be economically. not beneficial for them for example some say that already an alternative fuel source has been developed by scientists but it's economically unfeasible for countries that are dependent on oil like the united states like the arab emirates like russia so do you think there's any fact to to these statements or is that all theories and talk. unfortunately what you are saying is exactly the case advances have been made in renewable energy technologies but there are also difficulties for example big fields of energy windmills produce an infra sound that is not heard by human beings but sometimes small rodents and other animals leave these places so sometimes we are simply unaware of the possible effects of alternative energy production. in
4:43 am
addition it's a very slight effect but there are two ways to warm up the earth to increase the greenhouse effect or to consume more solar energy currently an increase in the greenhouse effect is predominant but if the entire earth is covered with solar batteries then more solar energy will be consumed and there will still be warming with those light. and what will happen in china is very interesting because china is a special case it doesn't have much room but huge coal reserves but now coal energy is too shameful to use especially for a country with ambitions to become the leading world economy. therefore they are likely to actively pursue alternative sources of energy while goods sold mission but that is global warming. it's been said so many times it's been blamed for all kinds of different things and then recently there were some russian hackers who broke into email correspondence between some european scientists that
4:44 am
actually said that there is no global warming so is there or isn't there doing this but i would put off one of the world centers of meteorology and climate science is in great britain it's the most ancient in greek meteorology service that's one thing another thing is that over the past five or ten years or maybe more of the country which has been most concerned by global warming is great britain in the summer of two thousand and four i was present at and one of the organizers of a meeting between tony blair's counselor david king and under a lawyer you want to distinguish councillors of two distinguished leaders one of them was arguing that there was no global warming and the other was saying it exists and that it is man made all this is political climatology both points of view there is global warming because temperatures have risen over the past one hundred fifty years of observations and over the past decade they have been
4:45 am
increasing quicker than during the first one hundred years of observations it is a fact we cannot deny that it's a pity. because i thought that it was my duty that it was something to help my country. my government. necessary for. there was a lot of room in the us a lot of of american officers. there are a lot of. ways. to get out of. these little i always thought i wanted to know a lot of metal and they do have a lot of decorations but afterwards i realize that they don't mean anything here
4:46 am
there's that name for. i don't i don't i never tell the metal. they faced it this is not a brotherhood you should look more. into it i'm sure just everybody you sure disagree retraced recently had no idea about the hardships to the face. plate one it's this is an altar to the east and for any army to life than to use the other is the most precious thing in the world. use of self-sacrifice and heroism with those who understand it fully but you have to live a. real life stories from would need to. be true nineteen forty five don't.
