At the start of the month, we reported on the fact that after four years of deliberation, the Russian government appeared to finally give support to the Paris Agreement. Not a complete ratification but on the way to it, by all accounts from Russian sources. For many, it felt like a strange turn of events in the face of President Vladimir Putin’s strong denials of global warming, while also proving a step in the right direction toward global consensus on climate change action.

It’s a shame — you’ve got a poor economy almost completely dependent on one industry (the oil industry) that is controlled by corrupt oligarchs, and that country’s totally corrupt president is apparently running foreign policy for what is supposed to be the most powerful nation on earth. It’s like a privileged, educated 20-year-old with kind and thoughtful parents who has fallen under the spell (or control) of a nasty, corrupt, immoral, drug-addicted street thug
