Vladimir Putin: Global Warming Is 'A Fraud' 

By Jelani James | Oct 30, 2015

Vladimir Putin believes global warming is a "fraud," an elaborate hoax perpetuated by other nations to restrain Russia's industrial development.

Putin believes "there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries, including Russia," political analyst and Putin critic Stanislav Belkovsky said, according to Reuters.

This skepticism is reflected in the nation's media coverage, which focuses more on Russia's ongoing economic crisis and events in Ukraine and Syria. Due to the absence of a conversation about climate change in the media, the public in turn treats the subject as a low priority, and Putin's skepticism goes largely unchallenged.

Putin's skepticism dates back to the early 2000s when his staff conducted "very, very extensive work trying to understand all sides of the climate debate," Putin's ex-senior economic adviser Andrey Illarionov said, according to The New York Times.

"We found that, while climate change does exist, it is cyclical, and the anthropogenic role is very limited," he said. "It became clear that the climate is a complicated system and that, so far, the evidence presented for the need to 'fight' global warming was rather unfounded."

Putin's view hasn't changed since then. During a trip to the Arctic in 2010, Putin acknowledged that the climate is changing, but he doubted the change was related to human activity.

Environmentalists believe this stance is also reflected in the Russian media's reaction to domestic affairs, reported The Daily Caller. As wildfires crackled across Siberia over the summer, turning the skies ochre and sending enough smoke to blot out satellite views of the 400-mile-long Lake Baikal, news outlets blamed the flames on "locals who routinely but carelessly burn off tall grasses every year, and sometimes incompetent crews struggling to put the fires out."

As December's global summit on climate change quickly approaches, Moscow's pledge continues to illustrate a lack of interest in the matter. Moscow pledged a reduction in emissions to "70 to 75" percent of 1990 levels by 2030, but by doing so the nation is actually increasing its emissions from 2012. As things stand, Russia's emissions are far below the levels that were produced by ex-Soviet smokestack industries in 1990.

"It is difficult to spend editorial resources on things that are now a low priority in the midst of the economic crisis," Galina Timchenko, who runs a news site. "Unfortunately climate change is not very interesting to the public."

I agree that the global warming is a scam, but it's not made to attack Russia. It is a part of new world order global governance scheme, to increase the burden on the working public and to enslave us all. Putin is not perfectly honest or he has not studied the history as he is supporting the United Nations, the same organization that was created by the same powers that destroyed the imperial Russia on 1917. The Bolshevik revolution was created and financed by the New York and international bankers the same force that was behind Alger Hiss, a communist spy working for the criminal  "elite". Alger Hiss was in key role in the creation of the United Nations and in giving half of the Europe to the Soviet Union after WW2 as a close adviser of president Roosevelt..

Putin is a puppet like Obama.  His position is calculated and meant to perpetuate the idea of divide.  All the world's a stage, yes indeed.  He no doubts the GW is a fake, and knows the real reason.  But the script is meant to divide.

I can't disagree with you Less - and the following adds to what you have noted in your comments.

Trilateralist Zbigniew Brzezinski (TC’s co-founder) wrote in his Between Two Ages – America’s Role in the Technotronic Era:

“people, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations. (The Constitution is) inadequate….the old framework of international politics, with their sphere of influence….the fiction of sovereignty….is clearly no longer compatible with reality….”

TC today is now global with members from countries as diverse as Argentina, Ukraine, Israel, Jordan, Brazil, Turkey, China and Russia. In his Trilaterals Over America, Antony Sutton believes that TC’s aim is to collaborate with Bilderbergers and CFR in “establishing public policy objectives to be implemented by governments worldwide.”
