If you are visiting this site is because you have been following us for a while or because you have found us through a web search engine. Both options include an interest in Norilsk, in this case in the story of our Siberian city.
We won't go over the same old stories about Norilsk. Plenty has been written about it and we have had enough of that negativity. Instead, we would like to imagine its future.
Regarding the pollution problem, we expect there will be a gradual reduction of emissions and an increase of waste recycling. The natural resources of the region will be used ensuring sustainability.
Some of us were concerned with the possibility of the facilities shutting down, since the whole city relies on them to live, but instead of that there has been a reconfiguring of the production capacities and the adoption of new technologies.
In the past, Norilsk was focused on generating value under any circumstance, but years ago that has changed.
Norilsk climate change
Recently there has been some information that climate change is helping the city, since now is easier to get here by ship, but it is also something that worry us all.
We have seen some polar bears starving to death, because they are not able to find food and have to swim during miles as there are no sea ice for them to rest. That is something terrible and will affect the fauna of the surroundings of the city.
The only way that Norilsk could have a bright future is by begin work today.
