Los ganadores del cambio climático

The Economist se cree la existencia del cambio climático y ha echado cuentas. Le sale que casi todo el mundo pierde, pero hay un país que ganará, y ganará mucho: Rusia.

But others will clearly benefit. The shipping industry will be able to use new short-cuts along the north coast of North America and the north coast of Russia. A newly navigable Arctic could cut thousands of miles off the journey between the Atlantic and the Pacific.
The biggest beneficiary is likely to be Russia itself, which encircles almost half the Arctic Ocean. Currently uninhabitable areas will become more hospitable; currently inaccessible energy resources will become more exploitable.

According to the United States Geological Service, about one-quarter of the world’s undiscovered energy reserves may be in the Arctic. Earlier this year Russia announced a project to exploit the world’s biggest offshore gas field, Shtokman, 300 miles off its northern coast. Russia had been expected to pick partners from among the world’s big energy companies, but instead it let Gazprom, its energy giant, go it alone.
Osea, como señala el propio artículo, es lógico que los rusos no estén interesados en que se adopten medidas conducentes a reducir el impacto humano en el cambio climático, ¿para qué? A ellos les vendrá bien.
