Snowmelt in the Arctic as a result of global warming could be a threat to the population of the northern regions of Canada, said today the Minister of Environment Canada's David Anderson.
"Climate change is a real threat in the Arctic, including those directly concerned Canada," — said Anderson. In this regard, the Canadian minister did not rule out the possibility of considering the question of the expulsion of the northern regions of Canada, the newspaper "Izvestia".
Canada is working closely with the Russian scientists when they receive information related to climate change, he said. "Reports of scientists sound daunting, but sit back — it is a risky policy, we should avoid it," — said Anderson.
