Bummer: Carbon dioxide allegedly may cause fertile lands in Russia to "become unusable for agriculture"

Phys.Org Mobile: Scientists say new signs of global warming in Russian Arctic
"We have explored 42 of the archipelago's 191 islands and concluded a reduction of the ice sheet from the last Soviet expeditions in 1957," said head of the expedition Maria Gavrilo, an ornithologist.
Many experts say however that melting of permafrost in Russia's vast northern territories would endanger its energy infrastructure, while fertile lands in the south of the country may become unusable for agriculture.
