is investigators believe a tourist a chechen minutes and with links to al qaeda is behind the car bombing in russia's caucuses what's left up to you can call in. facing up to the global drug threat the russian president the media is about as you can. always it's. a regional approach is what i told the dealing about down heroin which kills tens of thousands of people yeah. a growing number of us nationals are choosing to renounce their citizenship. the seven hundred people gave their american dream.
before. the weather extreme conditions have been this summer as a whole topic with heat raging in russia and floods devastate in pakistan people a loss as to what's causing these catastrophes. to prominent russian a physicist alexander the guinness book 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 alexandre 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 there 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 geophysical 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 a russia this year since europe russia pakistan and china to a degree have all been affected by disasters this in sage and hungry whistleblowers came up with a different theory and they are saying these disasters are results of retaliation
from the us that perhaps the u.s. wanted to strike pakistan and accidently hit russia and europe. in any case my answer to your question is no it was not caused by geophysical weapons with them 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. the exact is far too small to affect energy streams in the atmosphere and the oceans so as to use those dreams as a weapon that i have no scientific evidence that the disasters could have been caused by climate weapon or geophysical weapon or the. 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 the only practiced in russia but in other countries as well. soviet to authorities used where the control techniques and quite successfully to cause avalanches and hail storms and places where they needed them or drive away from airports it's easy to see from what i said that all weather control technology is ended controlling clouds and fog liquids in the atmosphere the latest trend in weather control of 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 hail
into rain these methods were introduced almost one hundred years ago and we have not made any breakthroughs 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 that . where did this summer disasters in russia europe and pakistan come from well they didn't really come from anywhere the 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 cycle in 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 circular and a strong anti cycling as the case is this summer over russia and europe this leads to a so-called blocking situation during which that pair can become very stable this pair will sustain itself until it gets tired and we'd have to either wait for that of autumn to come so that the strong anti selection 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 person since the cycling is the reason not a consequence the consequences of the site learn what we are dealing with now. 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 correct in their new little girl neither this nor that and there is solid ground. for that side lines 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 to them and as for global warming people are arguing now whether it is natural or manmade it exists out of natural global warming is pretty much the same across the globe it should be getting women 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 winning a title polar latitude depending on hemisphere in the north or in the south but if 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 resolution of such booking situations becomes more and more complicated it's on that they mentioned the so-called greenhouse gas emissions do you think that they killed a protocol actually helps with curbing 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 gotten dealings with it 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 there's a time zation to grow forests eliminating 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 in for sound effect and and forceful fuels are simply out of the question. but they are 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 know what 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 were in 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 into knots and. he mentioned cup and. the fact that leaders
of countries need to solve the matters themselves but there have been people that 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 they're also difficulties for example big fields of energy windmills producing infrasound 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 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 and 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 will those light. go and what will happen in china is very interesting because china is a special case it doesn't have much oil 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 but good soul engine 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 actually said that there is no global warming so is there or isn't there but i would say that of one of the world's centers of meteorology and climate science is in great britain it's the most ancient and great meteorology service that's one thing another thing is that over the past five or ten years or maybe more 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 learn to distinguish councillors of two distinguished leaders one of them was arguing that there was no global warming while 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 increasing quicker than during the first one hundred years of observations it is a fact we cannot deny that it's. extracting black. dangerous. but worldwide demand pushes the limits to catastrophe. is the price. is it possible to prevent such disasters. and can the aftermath be dealt with quickly time defectively. oil spills i'm thrilled. to join the military
because i thought that it was my duty most of it was something that i do to help my country i believe my government that is necessary for america you know there was a lot of drug abuse there was a lot of murder of american officers so. there were a lot of. rallies like. these all the while i always thought i wanted to win a lot of medals and they do have a lot of decorations but afterwards i realize that they don't mean anything they're not that important. i don't i don't i never kept the medal. investigators believe a school released
a chechen minutes with links to al qaida behind the cole bombing in russia's caucuses what's left up to people in egypt police in moscow all i want to us is all forces fear more terrorists hands. facing up to the global drug threats the russian president meets the media is about down astounds as you can because to launch on a wave it's hard to go looking experts say a regional approach is vital to combat with down heroin which kills at tens of thousands of people each year. a growing number of u.s. nationals are choosing to announce that citizenship. day was seven hundred people gave up the american dream three times as many as the year before. ok more news out of the top of the next hour a bit about what's going to schools update with you then.
your company this is sports today i'm going to take a look at some of the stories we're covering this very hour home advantage and it's in petersburg one will win in the first leg of their champions league qualifier against. the french fry nicolas anelka international career looks all but over after receiving an eight for his behavior at the world cup. on the future's bright top they used to live picks standings after day three following a superb showing in the pool and on the mount. is an instant petersburg have put themselves in the driving seat to join fellow russian sides rubina. in the group stages of the champions league. recording a one zero win over exert in their first leg qualifier is a need to taking their own to the continental stage the premier league leaders
going ahead after just three minutes through alexander. never really looked like relinquishing anything but a last stand in the second leg next week will result in the white and blues entering the european cup proper on receiving the hefty bonuses that come with it. elsewhere in the nineteen kiev and. russian international. got what could turn out to be a timely goal for spurs with his side losing three young boys its first blow to rosenberg in their old scandinavian clash with f.c. copenhagen while slovakian minnows upset the odds to secure a first leg advantage a way to spark a problem. the scandal which engulfed the french national team at world cup two thousand and ten finally looks to have come to an end albeit with some eyeopening punishments hunted done the most severe of which being nicholas and then. because eighteen months ban which effectively ends the chelsea man's international career
it all stems from a row with then france manager of women dominic during the group stages of the finals anelka was subsequently sent home with the remaining squad refusing to train . and patrice evra received an eight five match ban and should stay on choose day for his part in the revolts frank rebury will be out for at least three games while germany to miss is just one new manager long blank had already suspended the entire squad prior to a friendly with norway last. month but it seems to me that the players are sincerely sorry for what happened i understand that they were affected by these events though i can't speak for them but i think everyone has to realise there was a slip in standards but now we should also be able to move forward. from the pos world cup to one of the future events where russian prime minister vladimir putin has made some big r n t's to feed there will be no need for visitors entering russia to have
a visa in twentieth if the country secures the bid for that year's tournament fifa delegation head harald main nicholls in fact is currently inspecting football stadiums across russia stating the promise will be considered visa free entry was a large when moscow hosted the champions league final in may two thousand and eight with fun showing their tickets passport control instead russia will be up against england spain and portugal belgium in the netherlands and the united states for the twenty eight. their twenty twenty two finals are planned be for the country with the hosts of both tournaments to be announced on december the second of the senior because. there's a new kid in town over at real madrid mesut ozil joins the club for fifteen million euros from vertebrae men price not really comparable to the one hundred fifty five million it took to lure ronaldo and cock out to the bernabéu but the midfielder could turn out to be just as important the twenty one year old german. has had a stellar career to date culminating in
a semi final appearance of the world cup in south africa he'll meet up with his international team it's something could derail who signed for reale last month from start guard also is just when he was sick signing of the summer because you're up to try and play there fresh from early get try and in three years following barcelona's dominance. another player who star rose in south africa was mexico's havea hernando is the striker was already on his way to manchester united by that time though a move the twenty two year old says had been history the former guadalajara man made in his home debut on monday in a three no win over newcastle i was like ten years old and i always love this team . these players next cause i want to be like like them and i'm here i want to enjoy it i love this thing this opportunity i want to to grow up like like a human like a player and the most important think i want to to win championships we. that
brings us to singapore and to the u.s. olympic games are for a glimpse of some of the world's future world record holders russia's up and coming swimming corps have been looking just as good as their senior kind of part to top the european championships table recently the men's four by one hundred meter freestyle relay squad displaying great team chemistry on the way to gold china settling for silver and not one bit so it's. a great effort on the mark from the russians. able to pull his own weight down some to take gold in the thirty six. wrestling events. the russians were looking sharp in the women's individual saber discipline as well gauri on keeping her guard up while making all the right moves beating american selena mirza in a one sided fifty eight victory so after choose the richest tally is eight the last five silver three problems china only to third place finishes behind.
talking tennis now where it was a tough thing for me and she's day the russian stumbling the first hurdle of the cincinnati masters things started off well enough for the twenty eight year old with me i'd class in freshman richard gaff skates take the opener six to the twelfth seeds were mentioned feeding seemingly exponentially without the gas to rallying to take the next two for a two six four six one win for his higher rank the pope. said. furring much better in canada in her rogers cup opener on a c.f. potential cool but not giving up without a fight though against the two time grand slam winner because they did lose her composure somewhat in the second set thinking you see her best for the last twenty five year old seeing a seven five four six six one victory to advance into. i
. believe a yankovic feeling the bite of the the on. dog meanwhile as she got eliminated in the opening round by a qualifier the niece of the serb whoever showing few signs of a recent ankle injury early on pulling. things began falling apart rapidly but nice about showing grit resilience to fight back and take the first set seven games to six the czech star built from out seeing a seven six six. ok let's finish things off by returning pitch side for a look at the strikes which lit up week seventeen in the russian premier league it's cool to go to war time.
a tick. the issues that some of you i can't tell but i can build on thirty one percent i believe that they know nothing less than me and after forty years the so-called war on drugs has achieved preciously little nonetheless governments around the world. the toast team has been to the kaluga me where the car industry is rapidly developing. not all argee goes to the area where the first russian fleet was more. where the indigenous people were the first hard to keys navigate and where russia's glorious history is still visible. well come on the. russia close up on our cheek.
