The honored polar explorer of the Russian Federation, the chairman of the Polar Commission of the Russian geographical society Victor Boyarsky calls to clean the Arctic from the results of human carelessness.
On the 30th of May, on the press conference in the news agency “Sever-Press” he promised to become an active participant in the volunteer project on liquidation of ecological damage “The Future of the Arctic” presented by a deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vladimir Pushkaryov.
The honored polar explorer told about significance of ecological state of the Arctic for the ecological system of the whole country and the planet as a whole, rather sharply he commented on thoughtless attitude of people to the surrounding world. He even read his own poems-proclamations that he placed for edification to careless picnickers. They have the following lines: “Friends, this world is wonderful, do not turn it into a lavatory”.
“Ecological problems in the Arctic were received from the Golden age of the Arctic development and active work there, including work of the Ministry of defense. No-one cared about what would happen later. Barrels of fuel became a symbol of the Arctic. It is impossible to look at it calmly. Over the past five years the situation has changed: the program on cleaning of the Arctic was started up not on paper, but in reality”, as Viktor Boyarsky said. He notes that cleaning of the Arctic will take several tens of years at the condition of continuation of financial support for environmental programs.
Yamal is a region, which itself fulfills important and large-scale ecological projects in the Arctic. For example, cleaning of Franz Joseph Land is financed from the Federal center and Beliy Island — exclusively from the budget of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. Region self-finances and fulfills environmental activities; its initiatives are supported by fuel and energy companies.
